By eating the right food we can not only get healthy, lose weight and live longer but we can reverse climate change, save our scarcest resource – water, and end desertification. Industrial meat is full of hormones, antibiotics and pesticides, with more inflammatory omega-6 fats from corn and fewer anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats derived from a pastured diet. Cows and chickens prefer to graze on plants grown in pastures. When they are fed candy, corn or other grains, they suffer from acidosis and other gut issues, and need to be pumped full of antibiotics, vaccines and other medicines to fight infection, parasites and other diseases. On top of this, factory farms are destroying our environment. Mega-farms require a lot of natural resources and the waste produced from these farms pollutes local waterways, the air and the soil, all leading to health hazards for farming communities. The bottom line is: We have to stop eating factory-farmed meat and poultry. Grass-fed, pasture-raised meat is better for our environment and our health, and it’s better for our animals. In fact, if we want to get any of the benefits that meat can actually give us, we have to eat the best meat. In my new book, “Food: What the Heck Should I Eat?” I take a deep dive into every category of food we eat – meat, poultry and eggs, dairy, beans, grains, veggies, fruit, nuts and seeds, beverages, and more and guide to you to a science-based, sensible way of eating for life that keeps you, our planet, and our society healthy. I also address the environmental and social impact of the food we eat. Learn more via the link in my profile. #foodthebook
