Winds of Change: Eco-heroine Betty Krawczyk, Registered Dietician Vesanto Melina, and Social Coast’s Eric Nordal

Great Grandmother Betty Krawczyk is a former political prisoner, an eco-heroine who has stood in front of bulldozers and served much jail time in her efforts to protect the ancient forests and the creatures who live there.  She’s authored many books, and has recently released Betty, Blue Belle, and Bitch, inviting us to consider the child, adult, and super adult who comprise our psyches.  In the second half, Vesanto Melina, a registered dietician specializing in vegan and raw nutrition, food allergies and sensitivies, and healthful eating.  She’s co-authored several books with over 2/3 of a million copies in print in 7 languages and 15 countries.  Vesanto shares information about new research proving a plant based diet reduces heart disease, cancer, and is the best option for digestive health.  At the half, Eric Nordal from Social Coast alerts us to some of the activist activities happening around town this weekend and beyond.
