Food: Diet, Production, Health & the Environment

My wife and I watched Forks Over Knives recently, and I found the argumentation for a whole-food, plant-based diet compelling though obviously not exactly novel. Some elements are similar to this TED Talk on longevity by Dan Buettner, though FOK’s support of a vegan diet is more intense than the Blue Zone descriptions.

How central are food issues to your activism, to your lifestyle? How do you live this? What is your motivation? Do you actively promote your values to others or is this a more private part of your life? How do you work for others in your community or around the world to get sufficient quantities of quality food (30 Hour Famine, CROP Walk, etc.)?
