Description

Can we really eat in a way that supports and prevents some of the biggest health issues affecting us today? Will going vegan result in vitamin deficiencies? What's the difference between a vegan and a wholefoods, plant-based diet? Should we eat five or ten portions of fruit and veg a day, does it make a difference? What benefits does eating organic really have? With so much conflicting information about diet and lifestyle, this season finale takes a deep dive into the data, evidence and studies around the power of a plant-rich diet with Dr. Gemma Newman. Gemma goes into the facts and figures, as well as talking us through her own experience with the power of a wholefood, plant-based diet and what she’s seen in her patients, touching on everything from cardiovascular disease to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, B12, childhood nutrition, mental health, pregnancy and so much more.

I do not mean to cause any offence or harm to you both but what the doctor said regarding plantbased calcium bioavailability is false and very misleading. I'm a vegan myself and I believe a vegan diet can be very nutritious and healthy but I won't lie about what the science says and I won't address it as "perfect". Please revise this episode and do something about this. I love all your episodes and really enjoy listening to them but I couldn't stay quiet and ignore those false claims. They are quite harmful. The science is clear. Leafy greens are a good source of calcium but because they are high in oxalates, spinach it makes them not a great calcium source and harder for the body to absorb. I'm not a doctor or a health professional (& I don't claim to be) but I think that's common knowledge. Since I'm writing this, I want to congratulate u both on your new baby and I wish your baby girl health and happiness. Congratulations!!!!
