Why a Plant-Based Diet is Bad for Your Health and the Environment, Part 1
November 22, 2022
Jayne Buxton is the author of "The Great Plant-Based Con: Why eating a plants-only diet won't improve your health or save the planet." It's replete with scientific references. Her exposé pushes back on the widely-popularized notion that drastic reduction of animal protein will improve human health while heading off planetary catastrophe—Buxton demonstrates the science behind it is weak and steeped in confirmation bias. She probes the forces aligned to propagate that message—a powerful alliance of Big Food, Big Medicine, Big Agriculture, Big Philanthropy, Big Media, Big Government, and Big Academia. The EAT-Lancet initiative, which proposes draconian restrictions on animal protein consumption, failed muster in a recent trial intended to demonstrate its effectiveness against heart disease and cancer. Meat and full-fat dairy are not the problem, but the excess carbs that are inevitable with many vegetarian diets are. Buxton contends the world’s population can be fed and the environment safeguarded by adoption of regenerative agriculture. Click HERE for part 2.

ENCORE: How Diet Impacts Psychiatric Conditions, Part 1
June 1, 2022
Nutritional psychiatry with Dr. Georgia Ede. Dr. Ede is a Harvard-trained, board-certified psychiatrist who emphasizes diet in her treatment of mental conditions. She is a frequent contributor to Psychology Today, and we discuss her recent article there highlighting the role of nutrition in curbing the risk of severe Covid. She describes how healthy diet impacts psychiatric conditions through three main mechanisms: inflammation, oxidative stress, and blood sugar dysregulation. Ups and downs of glucose affect mood, and insulin resistance deprives brain cells of fuel. She advocates a low-carb diet, even keto, to address certain psychiatric conditions. At the very least, intermittent fasting helps the brain achieve a needed “reset”. She’s not a fan of exclusively vegan diets, and critiques the EAT-Lancet report which calls for minimizing animal protein. She discusses recent research linking food additives and diet to attention deficit disorder. Dr. Ede offers a keto course for clinicians at her informative website diagnosisdiet.com.
