According to the National Institutes of Health, more than 65 percent of all humans are cow’s milk intolerant. This urgent public health crisis impacts an estimated 30-50 million Americans and has been linked to serious health hazards including cancer, diabetes, obesity, and other chronic diseases.
Additionally, the International Food Information Council Foundation reported more than half of Americans feel figuring out their income taxes is easier than knowing what they should and shouldn’t eat to be healthier. A new podcast series launched on February 11, 2019 to examine the ties between dairy and unhealthy eating, and to empower its listeners to adopt healthy, plant-based lifestyles.
The Switch4Good Podcast series is co-hosted by Dotsie Bausch, Olympic silver medalist, and Alexandra Paul, a model, activist, and actress on Baywatch for five years, who recently launched a new practice as a health coach. Switch4Good, which Bausch formally launched in 2018, is a non-profit coalition of athletes, doctors, and coaches who advocate for the benefits of a dairy-free diet and share the often unreported science proving the health dangers of dairy products.
“Going dairy free is a life-affirming choice. It is healthier for our body, mind and soul. It is kinder to animals, humans and the earth’s limited resources,” said Dotsie Bausch. “By sharing our personal stories and the advice of healthy eating experts, we will continue to show that dairy is NOT a health food and offer help to those struggling with eating disorders. This podcast series is just one more step in our efforts to squash the lies and marketing gimmicks perpetuated by the dairy industry.”
The podcast features Dotsie’s personal revelations and life experiences as she conquered her own challenges with healthy eating to become a world-renowned, plant-based athlete. Alexandra also shares her journey, from the demands of acting to her current role as a prominent health coach. Joining them during the weekly series are various athletes, doctors, authors, plant-based chefs and health experts from around the country who provide insights on nutrition, athletic performance, and our relationship with food. As the co-hosts and guests examine the unhealthy, addictive and toxic relationship people create with their food, guidance is offered to the audience on physical, mental and emotional healing.
