More about today’s show:

Structuring our diet so as to minimize our environmental footprint is baked into the nutrition narrative.

It’s why Dr. Shawn Baker says, “The best diet for the environment is the one that keeps you out of the hospital!”


Huh?

The US healthcare system alone generates five times more greenhouse gasses (GHG) than animal agriculture does.

That wasn’t a typo: the healthcare sector adds significantly to air pollution, including acid rain, greenhouse gas emissions, smog formation and more.
So, if you care about the environment, a diet and lifestyle that help you avoid hospitalization is best!

Here are some of my favorite key moments in this conversation:
