Dr. Richard Oppenlander is an author and nutrition activist whose prolific writing and speaking are creating waves of awareness within the global society. Oppenlander both encourages and challenges us to be aware of the ways in which our food choices, something we often take for granted, are having adverse effects on the environment.
With unapologetic disclosures, Oppenlander professes his concern, while charging that many renown spokespersons who tout responsible and sustainable living are often mismanaging the information, or unwilling to tell the whole truth.
Richard Oppenlander supports a plant-based diet that he claims provides optimal health for our bodies and our planet. His book COMFORTABLY UNAWARE introduces us to our responsibility in global depletion, and encourages us to think about our food choices with every bite.
Ellen DeGeneres recommends COMFORTABLY UNAWARE as a “must-read.”

“COMFORTABLY UNAWARE explains, so clearly, how what we choose to eat has a direct impact on the health of Planet Earth: how modern agro-business and our thoughtless appetites are, quite literally, destroying the environment and the future of our children. I urge you to read it, to think about its message, discuss it with your friends – and start to change the world, one bite, one meal, one diet at a time.”

“As vegan diets gain popularity across the country for a way to improve health and the welfare of animals, it’s no secret that the environmental effects of this diet can have a positive effect on our planet. Comfortably Unaware helps readers take a closer look at just this – how to heal the planet by changing what’s on your plate. A health and environmental advocate for over 30 years, Dr. Oppenlander has long been inspiring change with his informative message. May his message inspire you.”
