Healthy Body, Healthy Planet: The Power of Plant-Based Nutrition
The latest research has confirmed that as much as up to 90%
of an individual’s risk for chronic diseases like cancer, diabetes, and
cardiovascular disease are attributable to diet and lifestyle, with a much
smaller percentage attributable to genetics, and entities including one of the
largest insurance company in the United States, the Canadian government, and
the World Health Organization are now encouraging that we eat a primarily
plant-based diet for optimal health. We also know that a diet consisting mostly
of plants (whole grains, beans/legumes, fruits and vegetables) can not only
boost human health, lifespans and quality of life but also slash greenhouse gas
emissions, save habitat for endangered species, and conserve our water
resources. In this talk, Tracie Hines will discuss these and other factors
related to diet, health and the environment, followed by a Q/A and discussion.
Tracie is a certified plant-based chef, holds a certificate in Plant-Based
Nutrition, and is a certified Food for Life Instructor with the Physician’s
Committee for Responsible Medicine. She has personally enjoyed the
transformative benefits of a plant-based diet since 2014.
