Episode 32: Allan Kornberg & Incremental Change

"As we say here in Boston... plant-based diets are wicked healthy and are healthier than omnivorous and carnivorous diets."

-Allan Kornberg, MD, MBA

 

On this week's episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast, I sit down with the extraordinary Allan Kornberg, MD, MBA.  Allan has a very impressive life resume as a physician and health care executive, and currently serves as Chair of the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries which provides funds, support, and accreditation to animal sanctuaries around the world.  He is also Chair of the Animal Defense Partnership which provides pro bono legal work for animal protection agencies.  We talk about Allan's journey from a meat-eating Brooklyn kid to a vegetarian and ultimately a vegan, the enormous health benefits of a plant-based diet, why the notion that we need cow's milk and protein from animal products to be healthy is simply wrong, the lack of nutrition education given to doctors, the future of food and medicine, and Allan's future plans of a non-profit focused on plant-based diets for children, and much more.  Allan is an amazing guy and possesses a very approachable combination of both optimism and pragmatism. This is an outstanding episode loaded with valuable insights!
