DETAILS

The session will begin with a look at the long-term health benefits of a plant-based eating pattern, followed by the research on prevention and treatment of many of our most common chronic diseases, including: heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure. Following that introduction, Dr. Nagra will systematically run through the myths.

1. Do we need to eat fish for omega-3s?
2. Can we get calcium without dairy?
3. Does soy contain estrogen?
4. Is plant-based protein as good as animal-based?
5. Why do we need to supplement vitamin B12?
6. Can we get enough iron from plants?
