Maria Rodale on Living Well

Rootstock Radio

Maria believes in not only spreading knowledge on how to live a healthy life, but also how to live a good life. People can live a healthy life and still be sick, says Maria, while people who lead unhealthy lives might live a long life, "at the end of the day you can live a long life and leave damage behind you or you can live a short or long life and leave a lot of happiness behind you." And she believes that food is one of the answers to living a happier life, "People who are well fed and well-rounded tend to be happier than people who are starving or starving themselves."
