Vegetarianism and veganism are becoming more and more popular with each passing day. You walk into a bookstore and the cooking section is overflowing with vegan cookbooks; restaurants all around have vegan options because of the high demand. Word of mouth is that we should all go vegan to be truly healthy, and that animal foods are bad for us. But is a vegetarian diet really a good idea? What are its strengths and drawbacks? Is vegetarianism better for the planet? What does science have to say about all of this? And, more importantly, what does nature have to say about it?

In today’s episode, Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, author of “Gut and Psychology Syndrome,” offers a fresh look at vegetarianism. She provides up-to-date scientific information about how plant and animal foods work in the human body and how we can eat to thrive. She dives into a variety of topics including agriculture, soil degradation, the power of plants to detox our bodies, and how to be a healthy vegetarian!

    Love the explanation on how the digestive tracts of animals vs people work, what they need for nourishment and how it gets supported properly. Good to see this information. Keep up the good work.

    veganism a way of life. Veganism is not a fast. This woman is all wrong. Check out nutritionfacts.org. Animal products are not needed to live a healthy and happy life. Her arguments are not fact based. If you want cancer eat meat and drink milk. Cows are sacred in Hindu is a religious reason to consume milk, it is not a science based reason. Also look at the sponsors of this. They promote animal products.

    How does Natasha do it, listening to her talk again, this time on this ambitiously wide subject I am amazed her explanation is so clear and convincing. In this complicated arena, it would be a miracle to be right on every point but my vote is with her. Thanks Natasha, do keep it up there is a lot at stake.
