The Underestimated Ecological Impacts of Animal Agriculture and Opportunities in Shifting to Plant-Based Diets
with ecologist Nicholas Carter
Hosted by Rohini Bajekal, Nutritionist & Board Member of Plant-Based Health Professionals UK
(CPD Accredited with 1 CPD Hour from the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine and CME accredited for the LM MOC)
Lowering one’s ecological footprint, and living minimally, has been shown to improve mental health. It can also lead to increased public health through a reduction in pollution and increasing the amount of land that can be protected for nature and conservation with co-benefits to human health.
What will I learn from this webinar?
- Learn how food and the environment are interconnected
- Learn about the scientific evidence showing the impacts of animal agriculture in particular
- Learn about the many ecological opportunities in shifting to a plant-based diet
