SHOULD WE GO VEGAN?
Sandy is a guest with Dr. Dave and Yoko today and is a vegan and a vegan expert. Sandy encourages you to google some research on a plant based diet vs. an animal based diet. Sandy is also very moved also by how animals harvested for consumption are treated too. You can also watch a movie on Netflix called “Forks over Knives” to give you some scientific background information on veganism.
More and more large companies have stopped doing testing on animals for skin and beauty products. There is an app that you can load onto your phone and then scan the product and see if they do animal testing. More Information: http://www.buycott.com/. Support companies and businesses that have your same values.
COOKING AND EATING
Dr. Dave and Yoko use Olive Oil and Butter for cooking and accenting dishes. Even though butter is not vegan, Dr. Dave thinks that both butter and olive oil are healthy options as part of your diet.
WE TAKE MORE THAN NECESSARY
Sandy sparked a conversation with Dr. Dave and Yoko about how are we taking more than what is necessary on this Earth. This does have a negative impact from buying more than we need, to the choices we make for the environment, and what we wear, and what we eat. Tune in for this interesting conversation.
ANIMAL CONSUMPTION STRESSES THE ENVIRONMENT
Does eating meat take a toll on the environment? Yes it does. Not only all the grains feed to livestock, but the entire energy expended to have livestock and process them for human consumption has quite a toll on our environment.

LEARN AND BE EDUCATED
Everyone has choice and options. Dr. Dave’s goal is give you more information and education to live healthier lives. There is quite a range on the spectrum of health. It is good to have more information to help you make better choices. Maybe you make a small change or a big change in how you eat. Maybe you eat vegan or vegetarian one day week or you go all out and go vegetarian / vegan for a full 30 days to really try it out?
LISTENER QUESTION OF THE SHOW – DAWN PATRICK
Superfan Dawn had a question for Dr. Dave: “Dr. Dave, I am a late night snacker. What can I do about this?” Dr. Dave said if you must eat at night, make it a good healthy choice.
