Most doctors don’t know much about nutrition. A sad fact, but true nonetheless. One of the best ways to promote veganism is to educate them about the benefits of a vegan diet. There are great books available on the subject such as The China Study, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, Dr. Neal Barnards Program for Reversing Diabetes, Healthy at 100, The McDougall Program, Eat to Live, The Vegan Diet as Chronic Disease Prevention and many more, plus quite a few DVDs. There are also outstanding brochures available from PCRM (The Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine) that you can obtain for free here. So next time you visit the doctor for a checkup – or even if you have a friend in the medical profession – why not hand them a book or a brochure to help them learn the health advantages of a plant based diet? If you have an extra brochure leave one in the waiting room for your fellow patients. You may just save someones life. If enough of us do this we may just create a groundswell of support in the medical community that leads to real and lasting change.
