Is There Anyone Who Should Not Be Vegan? with Dr. Neal Barnard
Are you or a loved one *suffering* from heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high cholesterol, or chronic pain? Has anyone ever told you how these conditions (and more) can be *prevented as well as reversible* in many cases? And when you've heard about a vegan (or plant-based) diet, have you ever wondered if it's actually a good fit for everyone, or *if there's anybody who should not* eat this way?
*Dr. Neal Barnard* is one of the *world's leading medical experts* on type 2 diabetes, with a ground-breaking study funded by the National Institutes of Health showing how this condition can be reversible for many patients. He is the author of over 100 scientific publications, 20 books for medical and lay readers, and has produced award-winning work that has also contributed key nutritional resolutions that are now part of AMA (American Medical Association) policy. He has hosted 4 PBS television programs on nutrition and health, as well as appearing in documentaries like "What the Health" and "Forks Over Knives."
Dr. Neal joins *Katie Kurpanek,* Eco-Living Coach and Podcast Host, to share about *benefits and risks* of the vegan / plant-based diet to our physical health, how we can *prevent and/or reverse* the most common medical conditions, as well as clearing up LOTS of *misinformation and myths* about nutrition, diet, and physical health.
"We never take anything on faith. We have reasons for doing the studies we do, we put things to the test, we submit them to peer reviewed journals. And I mean, we have to be right. And then when we are right, we make sure that the medical community knows about it."
