Dr. Stephen Hussey: Is Veganism Really Sustainable? A Friendly Debate
also available on
Well this conversation was a hoot! Not your typical Alter Your Health interview, but more of a debate... a friendly one that is!
Being very passionate about a plant based lifestyle for human health and environmental sustainability, I was hesitant to accept Dr. Hussey's request to come onto the podcast knowing he does not advocate such a lifestyle. Then, I realized the importance of broadening and deepening the conversation in order to think outside the self-constructed box and access creative ideas.
Some of highlight topics in this conversation include...
Is it really the absence of animal products that allows for heart disease to be reversed?
Potential deficiencies in a vegan diet
The cave man days and the evolution of the human genome
Is veganism really sustainable for the environment?
The importance of being mindful as a consumer in our modern world
Enjoy! And be prepared to see and hear some Dr. Benjamin passion!
