Neal Barnard — The Power of Nutrition for Health (Talks at Google)
In this April 2022 Talks at Google video, Dr. Neal D. Barnard discusses his work with the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, where he is working to change federal food guidelines, and through the Barnard Medical Center, where he is showing the power of foods and integrating nutrition into clinical practice. Dr. Barnard will also describe a novel meal program, called Universal Meals, a simple set of meal guidelines that ensure that everyone has a seat at the table. By meeting a wide range of food requirements, Universal Meals can be implemented anywhere food is served. Not long ago, nutrition was thought of as having only a modest influence on health. Food gave us taste and calories, and not much else. Dr. Neal Barnard’s research, funded by the US National Institutes of Health, broke that mold. It showed that, with appropriate food choices, type 2 diabetes was a potentially reversible condition for many people. His continuing research yielded surprising findings for many everyday health conditions from cholesterol and weight issues to menstrual cramps, migraines, and menopausal symptoms.
HEATING UP–Episode 1 of Pittsburgh Online Series–Vegan Mac and Cheese
In this online series HEATING UP, which debuted on Tuesday 17 August 2021 with this Episode 1, co-hosts journalist Natalie Bencivenga and youth climate activist Leandra Mira of Pittsburgh PA USA offer vegan cooking recipes, and conservation about social justice and climate change. Two Pittsburghers launched a YouTube series that covers vegan cooking and climate change – and all of the episodes are now available. Bencivenga and Mira created the series to reach a multigenerational audience (Bencivenga is a millennial, and Mira is a Gen Z-er), and talk about the real ways that climate change is impacting Pittsburgh on a cellular level. “For us, we felt it was such an important show to do, especially because we thought that we could reach such a large audience who would be interested in this message,” Bencivenga says. “We wanted to talk to thought leaders from the Pittsburgh market about the burden of the climate crisis, and what we all can do.” Not only do Bencivenga and Mira both live and work in Pittsburgh, but the two felt that focusing on this area was an especially important choice when discussing climate change.“ We don’t really think about it a lot, but we’re sort of right in the heart of the climate change crisis here in Pennsylvania,” she says. “What we do here can have an impact on the world. The choices that we are making here – both on a personal and local level and with our leadership – are important.” Each episode features the pair talking with two guests over vegan food.
