This episode really isn't about squirrels, or about politics, but about what squirrels eat... namely peanuts. Doctors without borders and UNICEF have been distributing a peanut based nutrition supplement called plumpy nut, for over 10 years. But what about peanut allergies you might be wondering? As it turns out, peanut allergies are essentially unheard of in the African continent, India, and the middle east. At the same time, the Western world has skyrocketing rates of peanut allergies - which makes this critical nutrition supplement impossible to use. Scientists know that the problem with peanut allergies is man-made and most likely connected to industrial farming. We clearly need to find out what is causing these allergies in children. We need to stop it before it's too late and we can no longer use this life-saving and easy to dispense food source for the world's starving children. That's what this episode is about. If you'd like to read more about plumpy nut, you can visit this website. I also mention the need to cut our worldwide beef consumption to help curb global warming in this episode. I have a recipe for peanutty eggrolls, that you can find here. As always, you can ask me questions or suggest topics for future episodes on my website contact page.
