Plant-based physicians

Medical professionals are making profound efforts to help others understand the health benefits of reducing the consumption of animal products.


Neal Barnard, M.D.

Physician, plant-based for several years:

“When you follow a vegan diet, there is much less need for surgeons to clean out your arteries or intestinal tract!”

Dr. James Loomis

Physician, plant-based since 2011:

"I found that shopping for and preparing healthy, complete, flavorful meals was not nearly as difficult as I had anticipated. Eating out was more of a challenge, but many restaurants were more than willing to prepare a plant-based meal with advance notice. More amazing were the mental and physical changes that occurred."

Terry Shintani, MD, JD, MPH

Physician, plant-based for 30 years:

"Using a balanced, plant-based diet, I have dramatically reduced risk factors for heart disease in countless patients."

Anthony Lim, MD

Physician, plant-based since 2014:

"I was under the misconception that carbohydrates are evil, and I lumped all carbs together, which is one of the huge problems with the low-carbohydrate movement."

Melanie Joy

Psychologist, plant-based for several years:

"We love dogs and eat cows not because dogs and cows are fundamentally different--cows, like dogs, have feelings, preferences, and consciousness--but because our perception of them is different."

Julieanna Hever, M.S., R.D., C.P.T.

Dietician, plant-based for several years:

"A plant-based diet has been shown time and time again to be the most health-promoting, disease-fighting, and nutrient-dense way of eating possible."
