Vegan doctor promotes plant-based medicine going mainstream

If doctors are going to practice what they healthily preach, perhaps they need to consider getting some vegan knowledge under their belts. Joel Kahn, M.D., published an opinion column for Huffpost Healthy Living about how he hopes vegan medicine reaches the mainstream. “Trying to find a whole food vegan meal in a hospital cafeteria, medical school, or office cafeteria can be challenging,” he writes, and it’s an excellent point. Veganism is proven to be healthy time and time again, so why not provide that in a hospital?  “Of more importance, introducing a segment into medical school and residency education on the scientific foundation for vegan medicine is quite challenging and advancing very slowly.”

He’s certainly on to something. When followed with nutrition in mind, a plant based diet is an undoubtedly healthy choice. He describes recent peer-reviewed studies that backed up his claim. Why aren’t more doctors promoting veganism? Probably the same reason anybody else wouldn’t; a healthy mix of misinformation and a pro-exploitation thought process. They’re just as susceptible as anyone else, but they have more information at their hands, and ought to use it more responsibly.

“It is time for vegan medicine to be considered front line prevention and therapy for the host of chronic diseases that maim and kill so many in the Western world,” he closed. Hear hear, Dr. Kahn.
