experts say

When we reduce our meat consumption or turn vegan it can feel like everyone becomes a nutritional expert giving advice, so let’s find out what the actual experts say!

“Appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes.”
Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (world’s largest organisation of food and nutrition professionals)

Ms. Dharini Krishnan, Former National President of the Indian Dietetic Association.

“Plant based diets are healthy and also ecologically friendly. You can get most of the nutrients you need through a plant based diet. It fills you up and prevents diabetes, overweight and cardiac diseases. There is no doubt that one could get adequate nutrition through a well-planned plant based diet.”

Mr. Harsh Vardhan, Union Minister for Science and Technology

“Two out of three Indians drink milk laced with detergent, caustic soda, urea and paint. These adulterants added are very hazardous, and could cause serious diseases.”

Dr. Walter Willett, The Harvard University expert on nutrition. The Boston Globe has described Willett as “the world’s most influential nutritionist”

“Most of the world does not consume dairy products and (yet) they grow up. Humans have no nutritional requirement for animal milk; it’s an evolutionarily recent addition to the diet.”

Dr. Ellsworth Wareham – 100 years old vegan and retired heart surgeon

“My folks were farmers and we had quite a bit of meat available but it never appealed to me to eat animal products, I never drink milk by the glass, I was naturally inclined towards the vegetable type of diet…”

A study conducted by Dr. Uday C. Ghoshal

“Three out of four Indians have no milk tolerance”

European Heart Journal

“The most striking finding of our study is that addition of milk to black tea completely prevents the biological activity of tea in terms of improvement of endothelial function. Our results thus provide a possible explanation for the lack of beneficial effects of tea on the risk of heart disease in the UK, where milk is usually added to tea.”
