Doing the Most Good and Least Harm when You Eat
A Presentation By Zoe Weil
What we eat may have the biggest impact on our health, other people, animals, and the environment of any choice we make, and we eat several times each day! In this talk, renowned humane educator, Zoe Weil, offers simple tools and principles to help you choose a diet that does the most good and least harm. Asking, “What’s the true cost of our food?” this talk will examine the effects of everyday food choices so that each of us can choose foods that feed our bodies, support ecosystems, and are kind to animals.
