No need to wade through depressing edicts or endless internet research when you have this no nonsense, fun, factually accurate riff on what most of us know we should do - for our health, our neighbour's health, and the health of our shared planet -- but aren't yet doing. So jump in! Take it one letter at a time. Or race a friend to Z."
