Hesh Goldstein describes the numerous ethical, health, and environmental advantages of a vegan diet. He explains how the U.S. "Health Care Crisis," so hotly debated in Washington recently, is in actuality the result of the government's own USDA agricultural subsidies, which give financial aid only to the unhealthiest products of U.S. agriculture. When combined with the advertising tax deductions given by the IRS and exploited by the unhealthiest offerings of the U.S. food industry, we have an explanation for the blackout of real health news by the ad driven American media.

Hesh Goldstein has been hosting a radio show called "Health Talk" since 1981 when he used to run Down To Earth. He pays for his air time and has no sponsors, so his honesty is not compromised. It airs on Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. on K108, 1080 on the AM dial. At 71 Hesh still plays two to three hours of basketball a week and teaches women's self defense classes - based on 20+ years of Wing Chun training. He has been a vegetarian since 1975 and a vegan since 1990. He has no illnesses and takes no medications. Hesh feels if he can do it anyone can.
