    56. How The Corn, Soy & Wheat Industries Are Destroying The Environment… And A Possible Alternative

    56. How The Corn, Soy & Wheat Industries Are Destroying The Environment… And A Possible Alternative

    Welcome back to Hunger Hunt Feast! If you consider yourself "green" or take interest in protecting the environment, you are going to love this episode.
    Today Zane shares the truth about how the "plant-based" lifestyle is damaging our planet and the environmental impact of grains.
    QUICK NOTES FROM ZANE:
    The current agricultural system of large scale mono-crops of grains is not environmentally friendly
    It is depleting topsoil, polluting rivers, and destroying ecosystems like wetlands, prairies, and forests
    It's a corporate-owned, government-subsidized industry that has run traditional farmers out of business
    Traditional farming skips harvest seasons to allow for cover crops and grazing, foraging animals to replenish nutrients in the soil
    50 gallons of oil per acre of corn- fertilizer, pesticides, machinery
    High water usage from rivers
    Comparison of water usage of 1lb of wheat to 1lb of grass-fed beef
    Factory farming of beef, pork and chicken wouldn't exist except for the cheap corn from the mono-cropping system
    Not a sustainable industry- grains are sold for less than it takes to produce them
    Grains are used to make processed food which makes up 70% of the avg. US diet
    Exporting grains to developing nations puts farmers out of work in those countries and causes them to be dependent on corporate food giants
    Once fertile Mesopotamia is now the Iraqi desert.
    Irrigation and fertilizers cause salinization of soil
    Dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico at the mouth of the Mississippi caused by fertilizers that is 6-7000 sq. miles
    Alternative approach: regenerative farming using a perennial polyculture

    as described in the documentary Sacred Cow by Diana Rogers, episode #36 podcast guest
    Polyface Farm run by Joel Salatin - has sequestered 2 tons of carbon per acre, per year for over 50 years
    White Oak Pastures in Georgia is a carbon-negative farm using regenerative techniques
    Is regenerative farming replicable?

    Lierre Keith, former 20 yr vegetarian, wrote in "The Vegetarian Myth",

    "We need to stop asking what feeds the most people and start asking what feeds people sustainably.
    What methods produce topsoil while only using sun and rain because nothing else is sustainable."

    55. "Everything In Moderation" Leads To Mediocrity, Self Indulgence & Disease

    55. "Everything In Moderation" Leads To Mediocrity, Self Indulgence & Disease

    You have probably heard the phrase "Everything In Moderation", right? This is one of those phrases that should send a chill down your spine more than any Halloween movie ever could. 
    In this episode, Zane Griggs has an honest conversation about how moderation, fake news in the health world, self-proclaimed "health experts" on Instagram and more is taking years off of your life. 
     
    QUICK NOTES FROM ZANE:
    Dieticians recommending moderation are certified by the Nutrition Academy which is sponsored by processed food companies.
    USDA, which makes the US nutrition guidelines has contracts with the largest processed food companies in the world
    Moderation is not enough effort to move you forward
    The difference between moderation and a sustainable but effective plan
    Consistency and sacrifice are required to reverse the symptoms of metabolic disease
    Don't believe coaches or diet programs that promise you can make processed food part of your plan and still lose weight
    Visceral fat makes us more vulnerable to disease.
    Improve your immunity and reduce the risk of lifestyle diseases with diet, sleep and exercise
    Improve your consistency by reducing decision fatigue
    Plan meals ahead of time and make sleep and exercise part of your schedule
    Improve your lifespan and your healthspan
    You can reverse metabolic disease
    You are the one who decides what and when you eat when you sleep, how often you exercise
