Let's Get Healthier, and Stay Healthier, Together. 

ICP 29: Dr. Paul Porras-

Plant-Based pediatrician fighting for better childhood nutrition

This podcast is publishing on December 2, 2017---I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving. I’d like to thank 2 new patrons of the podcast, Cynthia Crumlish and Dr. Heather Sowell. I’m very grateful that these people believe in this message and in the work that I’m doing enough to contribute to this cause. And if you’re a regular listener, I hope you value these episodes as much as Cynthia and Heather do. 

 

On this episode, I speak with pediatrician Dr. Paul Porras, who works in Washington D.C. Like Episode 28, this conversation was also a very highly asked for topic. You may recognize his name or his accent as he was featured in the movie “What the Health. Dr. Klaper and Dr. Goldhammer were also featured in What the Health and are guests on this podcast. 

 

People are, understandably, concerned with the health of their children. So I’m very glad that I can share this with you from a practicing pediatrician on how to you integrate a plant-based lifestyle with your child.

 

We speak a lot about dairy milk and why he doesn’t recommend this to his patients. And we also speak about milk alternatives, special nutritional considerations pertaining to raising a child without animal products.

 

If you enjoy these podcasts, you can learn more about this lifestyle by liking my page on Facebook, Plant-Based Cyclist as I engage with my audience on Facebook Live every Tuesday morning at 9AM EST. Hope to see you there.

 

And if you would like to listen to other episodes of the podcast that deal with children's health, I'd like to point you in the direction of Ep. 19 with Michael Klaper, Ep. 15 with Brooke Goldner and Ep. 9 with Ted Barnett. In all three of these episodes, we speak about children's health in some length. 

 

I hope you enjoy this conversation on episode 29 with Plant-based pediatrician, Dr. Paul Porras.
