“The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll is joined by Dr. Neal Barnard and dietitian Susan Levin to review the major health claims being touted about milk! They hop on the National Dairy Council website and go over them one by one. All claims are put under the microscope! Everything from bone health to diabetes, heart disease, inflammation, high blood pressure, immune function, gut health, and protein will get a close look.

They have the research to separate facts from milky white lies.

Plus, Chuck reports on a study that finds vegan diets are optimal for growth in children.

Dr. Barnard will be speaking at the 2021 International Conference on Nutrition in Medicine. The Exam Room listeners can save $50 on the cost of registration by using promo code examroom.
