Plant-Based Diet Cleared My Husband’s Arteries

By Robin Smith

In the middle of March 2012, my husband Dale and I watched Forks Over Knives, and halfway through he said to me, “let’s do this!” I was shocked, because he was a true meat eater and always finished what was on my plate. Read the full testimonial here.

Making Food Seem Healthy by Focusing on One Nutrient

Whether it’s protein or calcium, consumers should be aware of any food product that is marketed based on a single nutrient. Any given food contains countless nutrients and chemicals, and it’s the overall package of substances that really matters.

The milk industry, which has long claimed that milk is healthy because of the presence of calcium, is now making the same claim based on high protein content. Yet, in evaluating a food, we should be considering the overall nutrient and chemical package and the effect that food has on our health – not just the presence of higher amounts of one or two nutrients. We also note that just because our bodies require a particular nutrient doesn’t mean that more is necessarily better. 

Dr. Alona Pulde and Dr. Matthew Lederman will be covering these kinds of issues in detail in The Forks Over Knives Plan.
