On today’s episode, we meet the highly respected medical doctor, scientist, nutritionist, biostatistician and author from France, Dr. Jérôme Bernard-Pellet. After observing that hospital wards were filled with patients suffering from diseases such as cancers, diabetes, and kidney failure, Dr. Bernard-Pellet decided to conduct intensive research into preventative medicine, with a focus on the relationship between nutrition and health. At first, he was skeptical about the benefits of the vegan lifestyle. After conducting extensive research, Jérôme became an enthusiastic advocate of the vegan diet. He now actively encourages his patients to adopt this lifestyle to improve their health.

One question he is frequently asked is, “Should my newborn child be vegan?” “The advice for children is much the same as for adults. So, we encourage mothers to breastfeed their babies. It really is the best food for the baby. If you can't or don't want to breastfeed, well, there are infant formulas that have a soy milk or rice milk base. And therefore, it is quite possible to be a vegan from birth.”

Dr. Bernard-Pellet works tirelessly to spread the vegan message to his colleagues, other medical doctors and the general public through his lectures, interviews, and books. In an interview with the magazine “Antidote,” he noted that, when it comes to prevention of disease, the vegan diet remains the best medicine. He confirms that a whole food, plant-based diet helps prevent many kinds of diseases, including Type 2 diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease and neurodegenerative conditions.

Dr. Bernard-Pellet is delighted to report that veganism is growing rapidly in France. One indicator of this growth was the first VeggieWorld Fair held in Marseille in December 2017.

We end our show today with a parting message from Dr. Jérôme Bernard-Pellet. “My wish for the future is that there is a compassion that is created between all beings, so that it becomes obvious that there is no need to eat animals. All will be much better, including humans and, of course, planet Earth.”
