Event in association with

Health researcher and author Dr Zoë Harcombe talks about her new book The Diet Fix and about her belief in the environmental and health values of pasture-grazed meat.

Harcombe is a believer in real food that comes from fields not factories. She argues that the health of humans and the planet would be returned if people ate as nature intended. Harcombe is a former vegetarian but now defends the eating of unprocessed red meat produced from grazed land, a process she argues helps to prevent destruction of top soil. In her latest book, The Diet Fix, she offers a 10-step plan on how to eat better rather than less.

Harcombe has a PhD in public health nutrition. She is author of several books including The Obesity Epidemic: What caused it? How can we stop it? and Stop Counting Calories & Start Losing Weight.

This event is part of a series under the banner Pasture to Plate® that look at the environmental and health benefits of raising food on pasture and getting it to the consumer quickly through a short supply chain.
