This paper will review current nutritional narratives that promote the extinction of animal sourced foods (ASF’s) and why they are incorrect and possibly damaging. It will also briefly address agricultural history in the United States to trace how the country arrived at current agricultural policy, how it has damaged the independence of the country’s food supply, and why it is no longer useful. In addition, it will breakdown the contemporary issues and debates within agriculture and review current policy and why it’s insufficient. Finally, it proposes policy solutions that can help return the U.S. agriculture system to a more viable and sustainable model that ensures better health of the economy, citizens, and the land.
