(CA) 'Vegan rock star' touts plant-based diet
- After taking heat from meat and dairy industries, Dr. Neal Barnard won't
A crusading doctor who writes books about losing weight and saving your
brain through a plant-based diet. A medical researcher whose work is
published in peer-reviewed journals. A dedicated foe of processed meats. Or
a son troubled by watching his father and grandparents become strangers
through Alzheimer's disease.
Dr. Neal Barnard is all of the above.
The founder and mainstay of the Washington, D.C.-based Physicians Committee
for Responsible Medicine has a new book, Power Foods for The Brain. As in
his previous works on preventing diabetes and losing weight, he promotes a
low-fat diet of grains, nuts, legumes, fruits and vegetables as a strong
tonic, this time for preventing Alzheimer's disease. His "three-step plan
to protect your mind and strengthen your memory" also suggests lots of
sleep, exercise and mental stimulation.
Doesn't sound too shocking, but the good doctor has his share of critics in
the meat and dairy industries who aren't happy with his no-holds-barred
attacks on meat, eggs and all dairy products.
