200: Eat Meat or Don’t.. A Debate on Veganism

Dr. Bo Bennett has a PhD in social psychology, and a special interest in logic, reason and critical thinking. He is also the author of “Eat Meat… or Don’t: Considering the Moral Arguments For and Against Eating Meat”. And, while sharing common ground in many areas with vegans and vegetarians, he can be best described as “flexitarian” who strongly believes that encouraging people to eat less meat is will have the greatest impact on overall meat consumption.

To celebrate this 200th episode milestone, I figured a debate-style podcast would be fun. In this episode, Dr. Bo and I discuss some of those common beliefs and have mild banter over those we have differing opinions on.

97: Young at Heart

Vegan of 41 yrs, Dr. Joel Kahn is one of the world’s top cardiologists and best selling authors. According to the CDC, about 610,000 Americans die from a heart attack EVERY YEAR. That’s one in every four deaths! Heart disease has also been rated as the leading cause of death for both men and women. In addition, every year about 735,000 Americans have a heart attack, and of these, 525,000 are first heart attacks, and 210,000 are repeated. What’s even more alarming? A lot of this can be prevented! In fact, did you know that some nations don’t even have a word for “heart attack”? This is because heart disease is RARELY genetic, but rather a product of our lifestyles! Dr. Kahn mentions a study that was done in Sweden and the Netherlands with a sample size of 25,000 participants. Various questions were asked regarding the participants’ lifestyle choices. Then another 20 years later, the analysts researched who was alive, who died, who had a heart attack, what kind of medical procedures were performed… After the study they found that if you follow a few simple steps, you can absolutely avoid a heart attack about 85-90% of the time (only 3-4% of Americans meet this criteria!):
1st: Don’t smoke
2nd: Men, your waistline is less than 40 inches, women, less than 35
3rd: Walk at least 30 minutes per day
4th: Drink 1-4 alcoholic drinks per week (Helps the blood flow. More than 7 is counter-productive)
5th: Sleep more than 7 hours per night
6th: Eat 5 or more servings of fruits or vegetables every day

96: Change Your Mindset

Dr. Kasey Johnson is a vegan, a mother, a chiropractor, and a badass babe! While she was training for her current career, she started adopting the principles of the Paleo and Ketogenic diets; compared to her dorm-style junkfood college days, this was a huge improvement! However, it was also just a stepping stone in her towards an even more positive goal of being vegan! After giving birth, she ended up with the extremely painful condition known as mastitis (inflammation of the breast tissue). After researching how meat and dairy cause inflamation, she cut out the animal products and saw immediate results!

93: Positive Choice Integrative Wellness

Kaiser Permanente’s Dr. Raymond Berdugo, and Chris Heslin talk about the implementation of whole food plant-based nutrition into the doctor’s office!

“Of the top 15 causes of death, only one is NOT related to food, and that’s accidents.”
“Our number one killer in the world, noone ever has to die from!”
“We don’t need animal protein. We don’t need more protein at all. We need more energy; complex carbs in their whole form.”

Heart disease has now climbed to be not only the #1 killer in the US, but also the world.

Today’s episode focusses on all things health! From prevention to termination and even reversal of some of the world’s deadliest conditions, all by switching to plants (in their un-processed, original form)!

Oh, and by the way, Plants Have Protein; you don’t need to consume animals to bulk up at the gym!
