Eating for our health and the health of the planet

April 22nd is Earth Day. Earth Day is an annual event held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. It was first held on April 22, 1970 and led to the creation of the United States Environmental Protection Agency. By the end of 1970 passage of the National Environmental Education Act, the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and the Clean Air Act were passed. Two years later congress passed the Clean Water Act.
