As a lifelong consumer of soy, Dr. Yen Ang is a fierce advocate for the truths about soy and dairy-free options for good health. Dr. Yen will review the evidence of billions of Asians who raise multi-generational of healthy families throughout history on a soy-based diet without relying heavily on dairy. Asians who adopt a traditional plant-based diet suffer low prevalence of many Western sicknesses such as obesity, heart disease, certain cancers and bone diseases.
Dr. Yen will debunk some of myth surrounding the health effects of soy and discuss the odd obsession by the western media about the controversy. She will expose “smelly lunch” phenomenon and other systemic cultural biases in many of our federal nutrition assistance programs which stand in the way of one fully embracing a dairy-free diet.
As an Olympic medalist, Dotsie Bausch knows intimately dairy products and animal-based foods are not necessary to achieve peak athletic performance. Bausch will discuss how a plant-based diet can give professional athletes a competitive edge.
Bausch believes everyone must have equitable and fair access to dairy-free options that don’t hurt their wallet, and the planet. In this segment, she will discuss her effort to create dairy-free alternatives in schools and corporations for a greener environment and social justice. Specifically, her champion for soymilk access to school children in the National School Lunch Program through the ADD SOY Act; and her advocacy to get Starbucks to remove their upcharge for non-dairy milk on all their drinks.
