Now that I’m in med school, I’m more aware than ever of my health, and one of the best things I’ve ever done for my overall health is becoming a vegetarian. And although this was initially a change I made for my own well-being, the more research I do, the more I realize it’s also good for the planet.
It’s really important that we all do what we can to halt or even reverse the effects of climate change, and eating a plant-based (or even mostly plant-based) diet is one of many things we can all do to make a significant impact. The health of our planet has really become an important topic to me lately, and since I know not everyone is interested in giving up meat, I’m doing what I can to shed light on some of the actions we can all take to live a greener life.
As part of those efforts, these are some of the fantastic resources that inspire my daily life and make me act.
