Plant protein is preferable for increased health

Doctor’s Note:
For those interested in digging deeper, there was an interesting Scientific American blog this summer entitled “Human Ancestors Were Nearly All Vegetarians” and there’s an in-depth video series on YouTube.

Dr Greger has written an entire book on the previous ‘low-carb’ phenomenon. Although it was obviously quite a lot of work to compile and produce, is free and available online.

The related videos, one with a snarky yet literal title ‘Atkins: Trouble Keeping It Up’

and the more pragmatically titled:  ‘Plant-Based Atkins Diet’ can be found by clicking on the titles.
