Why You Should Listen

In this conversation, Dr. Greger and I talk about:

  • The simple rules he has developed to help people eat as healthy as possible.
  • Processed foods and plant-based meats, and whether or not they are beneficial to individual health.
  • What makes certain foods “better” than others and what consumers really need to look out for on ingredient labels.
  • Additionally, Dr. Greger provides some critical advice for food producers and provides tips on how plant-based products can be improved to optimize their health benefits.

This is a short but information-packed conversation that hits all the bases on plant-based nutrition with useful and practical information that we can all use to improve our health!
