This episode of The Exam Room™ Podcast is sponsored by The Gregory J. Reiter Memorial Fund, which supports organizations like the Physicians Committee that carry on Greg’s passion and love for animals through rescue efforts, veganism, and wildlife conservation.

Dr. Neal Barnard discusses a major study showing the unquestionably unhealthy effects of eating what many believe to be a healthy diet. He joins “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll to demonstrate how a low-carb high-fat diet such as the “keto diet” can create the perfect environment for everything from higher LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol) to strokes and arterial disease.

What’s being left off the plate is exactly what your heart needs to pump efficiently! You will learn what the foods are and how they have maximum benefit for your heart!

Other Topics

  • Can a vegan Mediterranean diet eliminate plaque from arteries?
  • Are refined grains unhealthier than meat?
