Dr. Neal Barnard, diabetes researcher and vegetarian/vegan advocate, is our guest today on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Cab Show with Jimmy Moore.
Dr. Barnard is the president of Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine and is a sincere and non-confrontational vegetarian/vegan advocate specializing in diabetes. He was kind enough to share his time for this fascinating interview with Jimmy where they discuss HDL/LDL ratios, ADA recommendations, different styles of vegan diets, potential cancer fears associated with red meat consumption and especially processed meats, and carcinogens found even in grilled poultry. He explains that when high temperature hits skeletal muscle, creatine combines with other compounds in the meat to form potentially harmful, carcinogenic amines such as PHIP. The creator of the glycemic index, David Jenkins, and his Eco-Atkins diet vegan/low-carb diet are also mentioned in addition to many other topics. Dr. Barnard is one of the leading vegan voices in America today and we’re grateful he spent a few moments of his time to share his nutritional philosophy with us.
