How Your Dinner Affects the Environment The Exam Room by the Physicians Committee

    • Nutrition

What you eat can have a major consequence on the environment. How does the carbon footprint of foods from a plant-based diet compare to those found in the standard American diet? The differences can be massive!
 
On this episode of The Exam Room™ podcast, "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Martin Heller to explore the connection between greenhouse gas emissions and food. It’s not just the health of the environment that is at stake, It’s also your health! Dr. Heller explains how eating a diet that produces the most amount of greenhouse gases can substantially increase your risk of dying from heart disease and cancer!
 
Plus, he and Chuck examine Burger King’s new “Reduced Methane Emissions Beef” Whopper to see if the restaurant’s claims that lemongrass-fed cows truly reduce “methane emissions” — a fancy term for flatulence and belches — by 33%.
 
Also, Dr. Neal Barnard and Dr. Jim Loomis answer your health and nutrition questions!
 
Does high cholesterol matter if the bad cholesterol levels are low? What should vegans know about vitamins A and D? Can cheese be a carrier for COVID-19? How can a plant-based diet help with multiple auto-immune disorders? How much iodine should we eat? Many more!  
Dr. Heller will be speaking at the International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine. Exam Room listeners can use the promo code exam20 to save 20% on registration!
