Thank you for listening to my podcast with Dr Alan Desmond, Gastroenterologist and Author of The Plant-Based Diet Revolution

He joins me with my co-host, Registered Nutritional Therapist and Senior Lecturer, Linda Sims. Linda and I talk with Alan about his story of being a gastroenterologist and how he became a plant based enthusiast. He also talks about the science based evidence supporting this which he shares with his clients and fellow practitioners.  

He is enthusiastic, optimistic and provides the research to back it all up. Thank you so much for joining me and Linda, Alan. It was a great podcast!
