Human and environmental heaths are intrinsically connected. As humans are the dominant species on Earth, the environmental health of our planet relies on human actions and behaviors.
Conversely, human health depends on the planet’s ability to provide adequate and sufficient resources for humans to survive and thrive such as water, oxygen, soil, food, and other essential nutrients.
A whole food, plant-based diet accompanied by lifestyle factors such as sleep, exercise, stress reduction, and sunshine are the basis of a healthy human body. A plant-based diet is also the most significant lifestyle habit toward reducing global warming, and improving the health and future of the planet.
