If you haven’t read Dr. Mark Hyman’s book, Food Fix, I highly recommend it. Check out this great conversation on Peter Attia’s The Drive podcast for an extended preview...
Western, reductionist thought and methods have delivered an almost surreal level of abundance and wealth to humanity, especially to the developed world. The protocols that follow have produced previously unimagineable quantities of food. In 2020 we are crashing headlong into it’s limits and reaping the myriad unintended consequences of that paradigm. The modern food system and policies around production and consumption are yielding a global climate/environmental crisis and perpetuating a population of humans with metabolic pathology like never before. America is the fattest, sickest (chronic disease) country on the planet. In a world with infinite connection, interdependence and interrelation we have to progress to systems based thinking and application to ensure our continued efforts and success.
There is SO much important information here that the public needs to understand. From the deep and pressing need for a revolution in our food production system and policies around food, to the great lie of the “energy balance” narrative put forth by the mega food companies. Learn where to source better food, fundamental concepts for healthful eating and what you can do to help change these things for the better. Even if only through the power of the dollars you spend.
If you find this interesting make sure you checkout the conversation below on the Healthy Rebellion Radio with Will Harris of White Oak Pastures farm. It is an eye opening story around success and the re-enrichment of rural America.
