Sustainable eating: making food choices that are good for the environment


When you think of healthy eating, you probably think of food that's nutritious for you. But what if we thought more about eating in a way that's healthy for the environment? The idea of sustainable eating is a philosophy that more people are adopting. This week on WRVO's health and wellness show "Take Care," hosts Lorraine Rapp and Linda Lowen speak with Dr. Walter Willett, chair of the Nutrition Department at the Harvard School of Public Health, about which foods have the most impact on the environment. Willett is one of the world's experts on sustainable eating.

More of this interview can be heard on "Take Care"... WRVO's health and wellness show Saturday morning at 6:30 and Sunday evening at 6:30. Support for this story comes from the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York.
