think, sink, or swim

I just completed my certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Foundation, a course I was inspired to take after reading Dr. Campbell’s The China Study. If you need any more convincing about the benefits of a plant-based diet, read this book.  After decades of research, Dr. Campbell comes clean about the medical establishment and why we don’t hear more about the benefits of plant versus animal protein.  And yes, this includes fish.

I was very impressed by a lecture on the environmental impacts of aqua culture and eating fish by oceanographer Bruce Monger.  A Senior Research Associate in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Cornell University, Dr. Monger reminds us that “the ocean is owned by everyone” and urges us to take responsibility for it in the same way we do any other aspect of our lives.  Only then can we preserve this precious resource.

See what’s happening to your ocean with this powerful presentation on The Global Fish Crisis from National Geographic.
