I really appreciate all my friends who are concerned about my new diet. However, there are a few myths about the plant-based diet that need to be dispelled:
- Persons on a plant-based diet don’t get enough protein. Here’s a chart showing how much protein is available in various non-meat foods. I get plenty.
- Persons on a plant-based diet don’t get enough calcium. As a matter of fact, there’s more calcium in my soy milk than in the 2% milk the other family members drink.
- Other myths are discussed in Carol Adams’ article here.
Just ran across this article. It’s even better than Adams’ article.
