Plant-Based Canada Podcast (Episode 2): Nutrition Myths and Misinformation

Dr. Matthew NagraArticles

It was an honour to be the first ND featured on Plant-Based Canada‘s new podcast and the first guest who was not also a co-founder of the organization. I have immense respect for Plant-Based Canada and hope I can help this organization grow in the years to come.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How I incorporates evidence-based medicine into his practice.
  • The biggest advantages to following a plant-based diet.
  • Myths around the consumption of soy products.
  • Getting enough vitamin K2 on a plant-based diet.
  • The debate over whether vegetables oils are healthy.
  • Recent results from the prospective EPIC-Oxford study suggesting non-meat eaters might be at a higher risk of bone fracture.
  • The science behind fad diets, like keto, paleo, and carnivore.
  • The importance of tacking misinformation online, including from plant-based circles.
  • Whether a healthy diet can ward off infectious diseases like COVID-19.

I hope you enjoy it and can learn from it.
