The Key to Wellness

My husband was reading the New York Times and sent me an opinion piece by a cardiologist from Tufts University and a former Secretary of Agriculture.

The piece hit the nail squarely on the head and rather than put my spin on it, here is the piece, in its entirety. It will make you sit up and pay attention. It will help us to ask all the right questions. It will force us to push our leaders toward actually serving the common good. Read on.

Our Food Is Killing Too Many of Us

Improving American nutrition would make the biggest impact on our health care.

Ramp Up the Anti-Cancer Power of Vegetables

The “war on cancer” drags on with no end in sight with 1.7 million Americans diagnosed with cancer last year alone.

I don’t know about you, but with stats looking a lot like they did in 1971 when this “war” was declared, I’d say we are losing the battle.

But there’s hope and it lies in prevention.

Leading experts say that up to 90% of various cancers are caused by environmental factors and lifestyle behaviors.

The New Shows Are Coming! The New Shows Are Coming!

After a six-year hiatus, I’m coming back home to national public television.

Want World Peace? Stop Killing Animals

It’s a simple thought that came to me while I sat in a lecture at a conference. The lecturer was a mentor of mine, Bill Tara, a brilliant man who’s forgotten more about the natural order of the planet than most of us will ever know.

He was talking about how easily we could slow climate change through living sustainably.

He said the words as I thought them: “The world won’t change unless we change. We have to stop killing animals.”

So what does that mean?

It means what it says.
