Plant Proof Podcast news headlines vegan plant based choline stroke vegetarians

Why we need to be careful reading news headlines about nutrition

Listen Now

In Episode 82 I return from a small break and record the first ‘solo’ episode of the Plant Proof Podcast. Yes, that’s right, the first episode without a guest. Just you and me.

In this episode I cover:

  • Why I took a short break from the podcast
  • The first iteration of a new direction for the show
  • My time in Bali
  • Sydney’s newest plant based restaurant Eden Bondi
  • The recent media headlines about vegans needing to be careful about choline deficiency and headlines about vegetarians and stroke risk. For both of these I walk through what was reported and what the science actually says.

This slightly new format which is something I intend to do between every guest episode going forward.

Full blog I wrote on Choline with references can be read here:Should vegans be worried about Choline deficiency and brain health?


If you haven’t left a review for the show on iTunes yet and have 1-2 minutes it would be greatly appreciated. The reviews ultimately help the show reach more people – and that’s what inspires me to continue bringing you more episodes (it tells me that people are actually enjoying the show and the messages are not falling on deaf ears haha).

Hope you enjoy the episode friends. If you have any comments or questions, I would love to hear from you. The best way is to connect with me on Instagram (@plant_proof).
