If you’re looking for even more reason to give up eating meat and animal products, and turn to plants, Barbara King may have your answers in her new book Meathooked: The History and Science of Our 2.5-Million-Year Obsession with Meat.  

In this NPR interview, Barbara explains why humans are actually poorly designed for meat consumption, focusing specifically on our teeth. Her book, which she wrote “primarily to discover why humans across the world crave meat,” explains why humans continue to eat meat despite this inherent incompatibility. King discusses the political, cultural, and social factors, among others, that drive us to consume meat, even when it’s not only unnecessary, but is in fact detrimental to our health.

All my life I have yoyo'd up and down as much as 25-30 lbs. always to gain it back yet again. I read Joel Furmans' Eat to Live and thought, well I'll give it a try for a month, can't hurt. During that month I also started to educate myself."

About six years ago I decided to give it one more try before I gave up. My goal was simple, I wanted to live one more year. My wife and I had recently buried my dad and her mom, we didn't talk about it but we knew I wasn't too far behind.
