Eating Does It

Eating Does It

Healing Ourselves and Our Planet with Food
by Kathryn Pollard, with Stacey Verardo

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. This clear and accessible guide offers the big-picture climate science and health information people need to make transformative food choices for their well-being and the future of all of us. Just eating can do that!

“The foods that protect and restore health are the same for both people and the planet!  Kathy does an outstanding job of addressing the inextricable connectedness of the foods we eat and their impact on the environment. Consuming a whole food, plant-predominant diet is the Rx that can treat and, often, reverse disease, while also helping to protect our precious natural resources, rein in greenhouse gas emissions and feed our ever-growing world population.  It’s a win-win-win! ‘Eating Does It’ is a must-read for everyone interested in their own health and that of the planet on which we live.”
