HEALTHY EATING FOR A HEALTHY ENVIRONMENT By Andrea Stokes, RD, Definitions, a division of Medisys Health Group

We know that our diet has a significant impact on our health, but we don’t always think about the effects it can have on the health of our planet. Many modern food practices that bring food from the farm to the table directly contribute to water and air pollution, increase carbon emissions, and endanger wildlife species and biodiversity. On June 5th, World Environment Day is celebrated across the globe. Whether or not you participate in one of the events taking place around the globe, making small changes to your food choices can positively impact the environment in significant ways. The next time you head out for groceries, keep these tips in mind!
