#52 - Diana Rodgers

August 10, 2020

We hear the question all too often. Would the world be better off without meat? Whether it's our health, the environment, or ethical concerns, many are committed to eliminating meat production. But in truth, these arguments don't hold up under scrutiny.

As Diana Rodgers points out, there's a better way to think about it. We need animals. We need meat. But we can do it better. What if there was a way to raise livestock that reduced greenhouse gases? Or a system that improved soil quality and decreased outside inputs?

It turns out, there is.

Enter "regenerative agriculture."

Diana and her co-author, Robb Wolf, just released their book, Sacred Cow. She will release a documentary under the same title soon. In both the book and the film, she describes how regenerative agriculture is the key to sustainable farming, how it is ethical, and how it can save our health as well.

It's an important message we all need to hear.
