Episode Description

“If everyone on earth were to follow the Western diet, it would require four planet Earths to support the current population.” - Patricia Tallman. With increasing awareness of the damage to the environment Patricia Tallman chose to address these issues head on in her book “The Restore-our-Planet Diet”. She discusses consequences of our prodigious meat and dairy consumption, and a convincing case for a whole-food plant-based diet. She addresses actions you can take to mitigate climate change, water pollution, rainforest destruction, and water shortages as well as addressing health problems such as such as diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and cancer.
