Welcome everyone to my new podcast, Awesome Vegans with Elysabeth Alfano.  This podcast will feature in-depth interview with plant-based celebs, politicians, athletes, entrepreneurs, influencers, environmentalists, doctors, chefs, animal activists and so much more!  I am dedicated to exploring how certain individuals are making the world a better place for themselves, those around them, our environment and our animals through their food choices, practices and businesses. I really do believe that if we change what we eat, we change the world! Join me in my kitchen as I dish with the movers and shakers who are doing just that!

The Gods of technology were not with me on this interview, but Dr. T Colin Campbell was!  Despite of bit of tech trouble that slightly affected the sound, Dr. T. Collin Campbell joined me remotely from the Science of Spirituality International Meditation Center in the Chicagoland area. The Center puts on the annual Veggie Fest every August which attacks over 40,000 and is one of the largest in the country.    

Dr. Campbell visited the center to give a talk to over 1500 people who were interested in learning more about a plant-based diet.  His book, The China Study, documents his ground breaking research that is a main factor in today’s growing plant-based health movement.  In The China Study, Dr. Campbell studied 65 counties in China comparing the health outcomes of those who ate primarily whole food plant-based diets and those who ate animal-based products. From the research, he determined that food, specifically animal-based foods, and not genetics, is the source of a multitude of diseases. Campbell cites casein, the protein in dairy, as being one of the worst culprits of all.

We decided to run this interview even with the sound difficulty because the nuggets that Dr. Campbell lays down are really worth hearing. Thank you for your patience. I hope you find this interview truly worthwhile and informative.

To attend this year’s Veggie Fest in Lisle, IL on August 10 and 11, visit Veggie Fest  And be sure to come and say hello to me.  I will be doing cooking demonstrations on both days at 2p. I look forward to seeing you there!
