I am a big fan of plant-based diet and have done my little research. There are many studies out there which time and again have extolled the virtue of eating a whole plant food diet and either limiting or excluding products such as dairy and meat. Following this diet not only improves our health, but it also helps in preventing many diseases from occurring.
The only problem with Rip’s book is that he does not cite the source of various studies that he has mentioned in this book. No footnotes, no author names, no journal titles, volume, list of references, etc. nothing. This does not allow the readers to fact-check the claims of Esselstyn.
I would suggest readers use those books that do not hide details from its readers. There are much better books out there in the market that can guide a person to whole plant-based food.
