And find links to vegan information sources on the right hand sidebar of the website under “LEARN.”
For an excellent book on plant-based nutrition see Becoming Vegan – Express Edition by Brenda Davis RD, and Vesanto Melina, MS, RD, both registered dietitians living in British Columbia. For more information check out their website. This book is also available through the Vancouver Island Regional Library.
A new book from Dr. Michael Greger, MD. has recently been published called How Not to Die. In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen — a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day. Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor’s orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives. This book is also available through the Vancouver Island Regional Library. To see more of Dr. Greger’s nutrition information, go to the Nutrition Facts website.
Every so often, we’ll explore one question in more detail. There is so much information available, so the answer will be in the form of a short summary answer, and then specific links to explore to learn more and also to have a chance to see some humorous sides of the topic. Until then, please enjoy this little bit of humour.
