GMO food & soil health with Dr Zach Bush, MD

May 17, 2019

In Episode 67 I sit down with Dr Zach Bush, Endocrinologist and Lifestyle Medicine Practitioner, and discuss how our food system is getting things so wrong. We dive deep into the use of herbicides like Glyphosate, the damage modern farming practices are causing and where the solutions lie.

Specifically we covered:

• Why it's critical we are having this conversation about our food system
• Zach's journey into Medicine
• Why he started looking to food as medicine and then eventually became interested in soil quality
• Conventional and Organic Produce
• Glyphosate & Round-Up
• Cancer Alley
• Problems measuring toxicity to the chemicals used in farming
• Regenerative agriculture & biodiversity - how farmers can make the switch
• A shared Economy
• Conventional Vs Chemical free farming yields
• and much more
