Kathy's new book Eating Does It asserts that the most effective action a person can take to address the world’s most pressing problems: climate and disease, is to adopt a whole food plant-based diet. It emits the least greenhouse gas, uses the least amount of our limited resources, and is the most available tool we have to  heal and maintain health, both inside and out.
