Global impacts in the middle of nowhere: two
Then there's avian flu of course. By all accounts it's not possible to get this from eating chicken, but the consumer being a fickle sort, especially with lots of choice on the supermarket shelves, this fact has not stopped them avoiding chicken in their droves. The impact? Well our neighbour Bunny raises rabbits for food, and he's doing quite well - rabbit being seen in this part of France at any rate as a good healthy alternative to chicken. He's not complaining, but I haven't been up to ask the rabbits what they think.
