Eating Plant-Based – Scientific Answers to Your Nutrition Questions

‘Eating Plant-Based – Scientific Answers to Your Nutrition Questions’ 

A global transition to a plant-based food system has now become an urgent imperative for both human and planetary health. Even though plant-based diets are associated with some of the best health outcomes and supported by major nutrition and dietetic organisations around the world, myths about the requirement for meat, dairy and eggs persist. 

Dr Shireen Kassam, cancer treatment specialist and founder of Plant Based Health Online and her sister Dr Zahra Kassam, a practising oncologist, have written ‘Eating Plant-Based; Scientific Answers to Your Nutrition Questions’ – a Q & A style book that addresses and answers commonly asked questions raised when people first consider transitioning to a plant based diet. The questions are based around the sisters’ own experience of advocating and educating family, health professionals, patients and the public on plant-based diets for the last decade. 

This comprehensive book addresses common questions – Is it safe to raise children? How do you get enough protein? What about calcium and Iodine? Is soya problematic for hormones? The answers are simple and straightforward, backed up by the most up-to-date scientific evidence. A go-to-guide for health professionals, who are increasingly meeting people in their practice who have chosen to adopt a plant-based diet. 

If you are thinking about making the transition or are already following a plant-based health diet, this book will deepen your knowledge, give you confidence and help you to advocate and discuss your choice with family and friends in an impartial, evidence based way.
