on Diet and a Sustainable Future
By Brisbane News Group (Originally in English)
[Brisbane] Dr. Aryan Tavakkoli, a vegan Consultant Physician in Respiratory Medicine in Hutt Valley, New Zealand, has conducted extensive research on the many-fold and far-reaching effects of our diets, and how they affect the environment. She has written and spoken widely about this topic at many venues throughout New Zealand. She also has been interviewed by both local and national radio and newspapers regarding the link between diet and climate change.
Dr. Aryan Tavakkoli was invited by our Loving Hut in Brisbane, Australia to give a presentation. She delivered her speech entitled “Greening Up Your Workplace - Our Diet Leading to a Sustainable Future” on September 7, Golden Year 7 (2010), to a room full of teachers, kindergarten cooks, environmental scientists, members of the 7th Day Adventist group, and other interested community members. The following evening, she spoke at another gathering hosted by the Loving Hut in Albion Peace Centre. The seminar was opened by Mr. Andrew Bartlett, the famous vegan politician from “The Green's Party.” Through her talks, the audiences understood better the link between our diet and climate change, and how a plant-based diet is the best solution to this escalating problem. Loving Hut catered both events, enabling the participants to see just how delicious and healthy vegan cuisine can really be.
