Episode 14: Benjamin Matthews & The Future of OB/GYN

"Knowing what I know... I can't imagine three plus times a day deciding to keep loading up on things that promote cancer and heart disease and diabetes..." 

-Benjamin Matthews

On this week's episode of the Eat Green Make Green Podcast, I sit down with local plant based physician Benjamin Matthews.  Benjamin and I connected through the Boston Plant Based Millennials group I'm a part of, and I was very excited to have him as a guest and talk about the intersection of diet and medicine.  We talk about why he chose to pursue a career as an OBGYN, what level and amount of nutritional training the average doctor receives, what role diet and other factors can play in fertility, the risks of different forms of contraception, the untapped opportunity OBGYN's have to help prevent disease, and much more.  I wish I got to spend more time with Benjamin, because he is so knowledgable, genuine, and all around a great guy. This is a really interesting episode and I hope you learn as much as I did from Benjamin!
