Veganism as a cure for every ill? IBD shame?
I have listened to this podcast for years and have appreciated his research-based approach. However, there is a theme that became a little too overbearing - plant-based diet and elimination of animal protein and fat as a cure for pretty much anything.
I usually eat a plant-based diet and have for years. I believe that it is best for our general health. Yet, the podcast has begun to sound like one of those silly ads “try this one crazy trick! Doctors will hate you.”
I still listened (sporadically) until the IBD episode. It was the same old suggestion of plant-based diet. He cited VERY small studies (20 people) and said this diet caused 100% remission from the disease. As a person who has IBD and knows others with it (Crohn’s and UC), I promise it’s more complicated than this. And the claim that the diet is better than any medication or treatment available is simply not true!
Also, the line in the podcast “if you have IBD, you probably don’t want to admit it” is rude and demeaning to people who already deal with the shame of the disease. A doctor should not add to this feeling of shame.
Anyway, I am no longer interested and would not recommend.
