Eating Plant-Based

Dr Shireen Kassam, Dr Zahra Kassam

From: £6.99

Despite plant-based diets being associated with some of the best health outcomes, myths about the need for meat, dairy and eggs in the diet persist. Following a Q&A format, two medical doctors (who both specialise in cancer treatment, one in the UK and one in Canada) answer all the commonly asked questions and concerns raised when people first consider transitioning to a plant-based diet. How do you get enough protein? Is it safe for children? Is soya problematic for hormones? Simple and straightforward answers are supported with the scientific background making this book also the go-to guide for health professionals who are increasingly meeting patients and clients who have chosen a plant-based diet.
