For example. we have caused untold harm to the air we breathe. to the water we drink. and. by exten- sion. to much of the food we eat. More important perhaps. we have created a so- ciety in which. among other things. many people are anxious and depressed. young women starve themselves. and alcohol and cigarette use are responsible for hundreds of thousands of cases of illness and death every year.
