Vegan Olympian Dotsie Bausch has launched a podcast through her Switch4Good initiative which focuses on nutritious eating and the benefits of a dairy-free diet.

The Switch4Good podcast, hosted by silver medal cyclist Bausch and former model, activist, and Baywatch actress Alexandra Paul, will feature athletes, doctors, health experts, and renowned chefs.

Episode one looks at the health risks of consuming dairy, including acne, digestive problems, osteoporosis, and certain cancers, lactose intolerance and people of color, and Government involvement in the dairy industry and dairy promotion among other topics.

Ditching dairy

“Going dairy free is a life-affirming choice. It is healthier for our body, mind, and soul,” Dotsie Bausch said in a statement. “It is kinder to animals, humans and the earth’s limited resources.

“By sharing our personal stories and the advice of healthy eating experts, we will continue to show that dairy is NOT a health food and offer help to those struggling with eating disorders. This podcast series is just one more step in our efforts to squash the lies and marketing gimmicks perpetuated by the dairy industry.”

“I think of milk sort of like meth,” added Dr. Mills, who features in an episode of the podcast. “You can choose to ingest it for fun and recreation, but in no sense of anyone’s imagination can it be considered healthful or good for you.”

Switch4Good, which Bausch formally launched in 2018, is a non-profit coalition of athletes, doctors, and coaches who advocate for the benefits of a dairy-free diet and share the often unreported science proving the health dangers of dairy products. The podcast is available for download at, iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, and all major podcast platforms.
