New Zealand, also known as Aotearoa, produces approximately 21 billion liters of milk every year, or about 3% of the world's milk production (95% of which are exported to more than 130 countries worldwide). Isn't that great? But wait until you see the impact of dairy farming on the environment.  Today we will talk about a fantastic film co-produced by a passionate Māori activist Chris Huriwai, co-founder of the animal rights project Aotearoa Liberation League. Chris is a vegan advocate and 3-time world champion for street unicycling. So, why should we care about Chris and this film? MILKED is a documentary filmed by Producer & Director Amy Taylor, which features interviews with high-profile contributors like primatologist and anthropologist Dr. Jane Goodall, environmentalist Suzy Amis Cameron, and Cowspiracy co-director Keegan Kuhn. The film reveals the harsh reality behind the seemingly idyllic and green dairy farming tale in New Zealand, uncovering alarming information about the impacts of the industry on the environment and health of the dairy farming community. MILKED presents evidence that we are on the edge of probably the biggest disruption of food and agriculture in history. It points to what New Zealand and other countries can do to prevent the destruction of their environment and change their fate.

It looks idyllic and green, but what is the real picture?   -Fonterra exports 95% of its products, and the company is expanding its operations in Indonesia. But what is the true impact of this move?   -Do small dairy farmers benefit from large capitalistic companies? How can they adjust to a different life with the agricultural destruction?

According to WHO, cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020, or nearly one in six deaths. Many cancers can be cured if detected early and treated effectively. Studies have shown that an anti-cancer diet is an important strategy you can use to reduce your risk of cancer.  To help us understand the role of food in preventing and curing illnesses, specifically cancer, we have Dr. Shireen Kassam, a certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician and co-author of the book Eating Plant-Based: Scientific Answers to Your Nutrition Questions. A certified CHIP (Complete Health Improvement Program) practitioner, she has immersed herself in the science of nutrition and health and completed the eCornell certification in plant-based nutrition. Her deep interest in the power of nutrition for the prevention and treatment of disease led her to follow a whole food plant-based diet. Dr. Shireen Kassam co-founded Plant-Based Health Online, the UK’s first online lifestyle medicine service, and Plant-Based Health UK, a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate health professionals on the benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition.  What we discuss in this episode:   - What is cancer?   - How much does cancer prevention depend on our lifestyle?   - The WHO said ⅓ of cancer deaths are due to 5 factors. What are these?   - How bacteria, parasites, viruses, chemicals in water and air contribute to cancer   - Inflammation, IGF1( Insulin-like growth factor 1), and food.

Jessica Strathdee worked on a typical dairy farm in New Zealand. The animals were not intentionally abused, and they had access to the open green fields so often associated with the pastoral practice of dairying. However, Jessica’s retelling of her experience on the farm is horrifying. It’s not the farm she worked on—it’s the system. There is no way to obtain cows’ milk for human consumption without participating in truly exploitive acts. Jessica is not an animal-lover, nor is she a bleeding-heart emotional activist. She’s a regular person who thought cows’ milk was perfectly normal, noble even, until her work experience revealed the truth. Now the founder of Mothers Against Dairy New Zealand, she’s using her knowledge of the industry to fight back against the cruel system she was once part of. What we discuss in this episode:   - The process of dairying in detail   - A day in the life of a dairy farm worker   - The challenges faced by the dairy community   - The moment Jessica realized dairying was wrong   - The slaughter that results from the dairy industry   - Jessica’s unique form of activism   - Mothers Against Dairy New Zealand   Connect with Switch4Good   - YouTube -   - Facebook -   - Instagram -   - Twitter -   - Website -
Food addiction is one of the biggest addictions on the planet. To some degree, everyone has experienced a struggle with food addiction. But we can't just stop eating. We need food to survive. The question is, what type of food do you consume? Think of your body like a computer and the food you eat as the software. Would you put malware inside your computer? Today's guest is Fraser Bayley, a former butcher turned vegan health coach. Fraser looks at bloodwork markers to gauge a client's health status and teaches them to understand how their body communicates. When you truly understand the mechanism of how your biofeedback works, you'll know what vitamins and minerals you could be missing; you can essentially hack your biology to the point where cravings are almost non-existent. Which in turn makes choosing healthier options easier. What we discuss in this episode:   - The challenges Fraser encountered in his teenage years   - Life inside the butchery industry   - What made Fraser walk away from his life as a butchering intern   - Shaking off the need for medications   - How Fraser deals with anxiety and mental health issues NOW   - Understanding BIOFEEDBACK to make better choices   - What many fitness coaches struggle with but they won't always admit   - The HUGE motivating factor that encouraged Fraser to make the complete shift    - Two KEY HABITS that can transform your life    - How The World Peace Diet influenced Fraser’s decision to become vegan   - Is intermittent fasting beneficial for everyone?   - What does Fraser’s diet look like?   - Recommended books: The World Peace Diet, The Untethered Soul, Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao   - Read Fraser’s blog: The Mask Of Masculinity’s Missing Chapter - The Meat Eating Mask:   - Use code SWITCH for 25% off your order at   - Purality B12 Deal: to buy one B12 and get one free plus 35% off the rest of Purality’s products   Connect with Switch4Good - YouTube -   - Facebook -   - Instagram -   - Twitter -   - Website -
