How Smoke From Fireplaces, Wood Stoves, BBQs and More Contribute to Outdoor Air Pollution and Affect Our Health

Mary RozenbergMy guest today is Mary Rozenberg, Co-Founder of the Burning Issues website, a project of the nonprofit organization Clean Air Revival. We’ll be talking about particulate pollution in outdoor air, how you are contributing to it, and how it is affecting your own health and the health of others. Since 1987, Mary and members have been working tirelessly to improve ambient outdoor air quality through the reduction of Fine Particulate Pollution. The most common sources of deadly Fine Particulate Pollution are residential wood burning (RWB), restaurant wood burning, coal burning, forest fires and agriculture burning, and diesel and auto exhaust. It is estimated that 72,000 people die annually in the United States from the effects of these fine particles. Once emitted they are impossible to clean up. More than half of the fine particulate is caused by fewer than 10% of the population using the dirtiest fuels for recreation and heating. Their principal activity is public education, including the collection and dissemination of the latest science information regarding health effects, economic impacts, and individual actions to reduce and stop solid fuel combustion. Burning Issues also actively does particulate monitoring and has published the results.

Wondering What’s in a Product? Here’s a Way to Find Out That You’ll Love

Due to a last minute scheduling problem, today’s guest has been rescheduled. Today we presented a replay of the Building a Food Forest for a Perpetual Food Supply show with Diann Dirks.

My guest today is Diann Dirks, Certified Permaculture Designer. We’ll be talking about Food Forests, a kind of orchard growing food and herbs in an integrative way so that all ground and vertical layers of growing plants are utilized, making the best use of the land, instead of just trees and grass. The use of many kinds of companion species are used like in nature. The point of a Food Forest is that once installed, people have a very long future of available food and medicine at hand, with minimum effort other than harvesting and tree care. Diann is very involved in solving the problems of feeding people long term in an earth-kind way, producing abundance for people and regeneration for the earth. A food forest once installed will feed people for generations and rebuild the soil as well as eliminate erosion, a real problem in today’s customary agricultural practices. Permaculture is a design science based on Natural Laws observed and codified by Bill Mollison and his students about 30 years ago, mapping out how nature creates long term sustabilable life systems. It comes from Permanent Agriculture because in nature the system is permanent. Using those laws observed, and based on a code of ethics, a permaculturist is looking to not only get good yield out of an agricultural system, but also, restore the earth like nature does after a natural disaster, only faster. Diann is a professional consultant in Permaculture, an organic gardener for over 45 years, and the builder of a Food Forest on her property in NE Georgia.

Nourishing Traditions: Bringing Traditional Foods to Modern Life

Sally FallonMy guest today, Sally Fallon Morell is author of the bestselling cookbook Nourishing Traditions and The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby and Child Care. She is the founding president of the Weston A. Price Foundation. We’ll be talking about how Dr. Weston Price researched traditional cultures to learn about nutrition and what we really should be eating for good health. Sally is a journalist, chef, nutrition researcher, homemaker, and community activist. Her lifelong interest in the subject of nutrition began in the early 1970s when she read Nutrition and Physical Degeneration by Weston A. Price. Called the “Isaac Newton of Nutrition,” Price traveled the world over studying healthy primitive populations and their diets. The unforgettable photographs contained in his book document the beautiful facial structure and superb physiques of isolated groups consuming only whole, natural foods. Price noted that all of these diets contained a source of good quality animal fat, which provided numerous factors necessary for the full expression of our genetic potential and optimum health. Ms. Morell applied the principles of the Price research to the feeding of her own children, and proved for herself that a diet rich in animal fats, and containing the protective factors in old fashioned foodstuffs like cod liver oil, liver and eggs, make for sturdy cheerful children with a high immunity to illness. And since she has been educating the world on how to enjoy this diet deliciously.
