Tony Wardle (Viva!): Saving the World With Your Knife and Fork
Tony Wardle of Viva! investigates the state of the global environment and finds it at crisis point. Global Warming is blinding us to the other ecological disasters that threaten our future. Forests are disappearing faster than ever, deserts are spreading and soil degrading, species extinction is epidemic, nitrogen pollution is growing and antibotic-resistant micro-organisms are already killing millions as superbugs flourish. And yes, the most immediately threatening of them all is global warming. The common threat is livestock production for meat and dairy and a political obsession with constant growth. www.tonywardle.co.uk

Nancy Silverstone: Protein and B12 on a Vegan Diet
Finding the best dietary sources for protein can be tricky for vegans & vegetarians. There are plenty of foods that contain protein but do they provide high quality complete and usable protein? How much protein do you actually need each day? What about the amino acids in your foods? They build protein. How about trace minerals? Where have they gone? And what about B12 if you are a vegan. There are credible yet differing views. Nancy will explore the different sources of protein that are best for vegans and vegetarians. We’ll also look at how to maximise your body’s ability to produce B12 as well as the best form to take. We will also review early civilizations and their solutions. www.healthy.co.uk
