DIYFS Podcast #28- Interview with Nicolette Hahn Niman, Author of Defending Beef.

This weeks podcast is an interview with author Nicolette Hahn Niman. During the course of our conversation we briefly discuss her background and first book, “Righteous Pork Chop”.

From there we quickly move into her latest writing, “Defending Beef”. This interview and the book cover many widely held misconceptions about beef production and its effects on the environment and human health.

In summary this book demonstrates that beef and other large herbivore production is not in and of itself to blame for damage to the ecosystem, but rather that the methodologies and land management practices are what is doing the harm. The book demonstrates this by citing multiple scientific studies and by pointing out the fallacies of other studies which have been adopted and are frequently cited by persons who believe beef production is harmful.

To get the full break down, check out the show…and follow that up with buying and reading her very well documented book. Links to order below.
