What we eat impacts both our health and the health of the planet.
When we think about climate change we think about our transportation systems and our power plants. However, our food choices and our agricultural systems produce 49 - 87% of human caused greenhouse gases (per studies).
Most of the chronic diseases we face in the US are linked to what we eat. "Most deaths in the U.S. are preventable and they are related to what we eat,” Dean Ornish DM (per studies).
What we put on our fork impacts both our health and the health of the planet.
Please come join us to hear Joyce M Eden speak in more detail on this topic.
About our presenter: Recently, Joyce M Eden has been presenting power points and talks regarding the links between Climate, Health and Food Choices.
Joyce was a founding member of various environmental groups and led or co-led the groups at various times through a series of litigations and campaigns - variously, at local, state and federal levels to protect air and water quality, riparian areas, public lands, food transparency and so on. One of the lawsuits was heard at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
In 2011 and 2012, Joyce was the South Bay Co-ordinator for LabelGMOs, the statewide ballot initiative campaign to require California to label genetically engineered foods at the retail level. She is a practicing Yoga Therapist.
