Tractor Time Episode Episode 25: Fred Provenza, Author & Animal Behavior Expert- Tractor Time, Acres USA

Released Jan 29th, 2019

So, todayโ€™s guest โ€“ Renowned animal behaviorist Fred Provenza has spent his academic career researching how animals respond to an intricately tuned system of flavor-feedback relationships. In other words, animals somehow instinctively seem to know what foods they need to stay alive and healthy. But what about us humans? Do we possess that same wisdom? He wrote about that in a new book from Chelsea Green called Nourishment: What Animals Can Teach Us About Rediscovering Our Nutritional Wisdom.

Weโ€™re going to get into that book, but more importantly, weโ€™re going to use that book to talk about the larger health issues, and how our own bodies and own biology often can defy us โ€“ but they can also tell us exactly what we need to know. Weโ€™re doing to cover that and a lot more in this episode of Tractor Time, brought to you by Acres U.S.A. We recorded this interview on Wednesday, Jan. 23, via phone.
