ICP 30: David R. Simon-
Meatonomics & the rigged economics of meat and dairy
In this episode, we take a step away from our usual conversations with doctors or medical professionals to speak to an expert with a different focus that presents new and refreshing arguments to adopting plant-based lifestyle.
David Simon is a lawyer, by profession, and author of the book “Meatanomics: How the Rigged Economics of Meat and Dairy make you consume too much.
With this book, he adds a unique breadth and depth of knowledge to the ever growing argument in favor of a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle with financial and economic reasons to push away from animal foods in favor of more plants.
In our conversation, some of the topics we cover include check-off programs, government subsidies, and externalized costs. The information he brings to the table presents a muddled and disturbing picture of the relationship between big government, big industry and the American Citizen.
I know you will learn something from this conversation on Episode 30, with David Simon.
