    MIAMI, Oct. 12, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The Global Wellness Summit (GWS), the most prestigious conference on the $4.4 trillion business of wellness, today unveiled the full, three-day agenda-and 30-plus new keynotes and panels-for its conference being held in Tel Aviv from October 31 to November 3.

    Killexams : 15 Podcasts To Listen To For Tips On Healthy Eating girl with headphones listening to podcast © Inside Creative House/Shutterstock girl with headphones listening to podcast

    Podcasts have exploded in popularity over the past decade, quickly becoming a go-to source of not only entertainment, but also education for people of all ages and backgrounds. Podcasts are how we learn more about the courses that matter most to us -- and people are listening to them on their phones while they drive, cook dinner, workout, do chores, or just relax on the sofa. And if you're somebody who wants to learn more about healthy eating, you're in luck. There are plenty of podcasts to choose from.

    One of the reasons this variety and selection is so great is because healthy eating looks a little different to everyone. Having so many different podcasts means you can find one that's specifically tailored to your goals and your needs, whether you're trying to lose weight, train for athletic competition, raise a child with good food habits, or recover from disordered eating.

    We've rounded up 15 of our favorite podcasts with varied approaches to healthy eating. One thing they all have in common, though? They're all reliable sources of information.

    How To Choose A Nutrition Podcast

    Here's the tough thing about picking a nutrition podcast: How do you choose? After all, even if one of the podcasts on this list appeals to you, there are still hundreds of others out there. (And who actually listens to just one podcast?) So what is it that actually distinguishes a nutrition podcast as being worth a listen? And if you're looking for other options beyond this list, what should you be considering?

    Livestrong encourages you to start by always checking the credentials of the podcast's host. Are they actually qualified to be talking about nutrition? If they simply call themselves a "nutritionist," that doesn't really count for anything -- a nutritionist isn't a formal title, so pretty much anybody can claim it. Instead, you want to be looking for somebody who is a Registered Dietitian, indicated by the RD credentials after their name. Being an RD means this person has achieved a four-year degree in dietetics and maintains continuing education credits.

    You also want to make sure the host of the podcast is backing up everything they say with evidence and research.

    The Nutrition Show

    When it comes to understanding nutrition, there's a lot to consider -- and it can get pretty complicated. One of the reasons that The Nutrition Show (previously known as Mary's Nutrition Show) stands out is the approach its host takes to the subject matter: Mary Purdy, MS, RDN, strives to simplify healthy eating and cover trending courses in a way that's approachable and understandable, and she does it all with a sense of humor. With 14 years of experience in clinical nutrition, Purdy knows her stuff, and her philosophy is that food has the ability to Excellerate people's lives because it helps them have more energy and fend off sickness.

    The other aspect of The Nutrition Show that makes it unique is that it isn't just about people's health. It's also about the planet's health. As a climate activist, Purdy knows that the foods we eat have an effect on the environment around us, so she encourages eco-friendly diet choices and emphasizes sustainability in our diets.

    Food Psych

    Ever notice that you think about food a lot? You're not alone. Most of us like to consider what tastes good and what's healthy for us when we're making our dietary choices. The thing is, thinking about food should be a positive experience. But when people's approach to food and eating starts to have a negative effect on their lives, it's a problem. That's why Food Psych, hosted by Christy Harrison, MPH, RD, CEDS -- a registered dietitian as well as an intuitive eating counselor -- runs a podcast to help people heal their relationship with food. 

    Harrison's approach to nutrition is one that's against diet culture and the idea that restrictive food choices equate to health. Instead, she and her wide variety of guests focus on body positivity and moving away from disordered eating habits. They point out trendy concepts and behaviors that are often considered healthy but are actually restrictive and mentally harmful, all so that listeners get a better understanding of what it means to have a beneficial relationship with what they eat.

    Food Heaven

    When you think of good health, do you have a specific image of a person that comes to mind? Well, maybe it's time to rethink that. On the podcast Food Heaven, hosts Wendy Lopez and Jessica Jones -- both registered dietitian nutritionists -- talk to experts about what it means to actually be healthy, and how the concept of being healthy is inclusive of all people, regardless of their size or other outside factors. 

    In addition to being inclusive, their concept of good health is one that's sustainable: Good nutrition isn't about adopting certain eating habits for a short period of time to achieve a specific goal; instead, it's about what works for you in your everyday life for the long term. As part of the podcast, Lopez and Jones interview health experts who connect nutrition to things like mental health and social culture. 

    In short, Food Heaven is all about the big picture of how our food choices affect all aspects of our life -- and how those food choices should be affecting us for the better.

    Maintenance Phase

    Maybe you've heard the term "maintenance phase" in regard to not necessarily trying to gain weight or lose weight -- you're just trying to stay right where you are for the foreseeable future. And that's the idea behind the Maintenance Phase podcast, hosted by Aubrey Gordon and Michael Hobbes: It's about maintaining a healthy lifestyle for the long term instead of focusing on the trends or the fads. Take, for example, keto or Weight Watchers. Although these diets are extremely popular, they aren't supported by real health science and can be harmful to those who follow them.

    Although neither host is a dietitian -- Gordon is an author and body positivity activist, and Hobbes is a journalist -- they back up their discussion with reliably sourced information as they discuss harmful fad diets (not just keto and Weight Watchers, but many others as well) and the way weight stigma permeates pop culture. Gordon and Hobbes also explore why some of the thinking behind trendy fad diets is unreliable and problematic.

    The Nourished Child

    Every parent wants to raise a healthy kid, but there's so much to consider: No two children are the same, and some have more adventurous approaches to food than others. Making the struggle even more complicated is the fact that kids are unpredictable at certain ages. They might like a food one day and then hate it the next, without any discernable reason for their preferences or aversions. It's enough to drive a parent crazy.

    That's why there's The Nourished Child, hosted by registered dietitian and pediatric nutritionist Jill Castle, who also happens to be a mom herself (so she knows what parents are going through). On each episode of the podcast, Castle looks at how to approach child nutrition and providing growing bodies with the nutritious foods they need. She addresses every age of development and all the frustrations that come along with each, from picky toddlers who will hardly eat anything to teen athletes who seemingly need all the calories in the world to fuel themselves at practice. 

    In addition to providing nutritional knowledge, Castle creates an inclusive space for all parents of all children, promoting a philosophy of respect for different body shapes, sizes, colors, weight and abilities, as well as making sure healthy eating is adaptable to things like medical status, culture, and finances.

    RD Real Talk

    Sometimes, it feels as if all discussion of diet and nutrition is about is stilted or (if you'll pardon the metaphor in the context of nutritive health) sugar-coated. That's why there's the RD Real Talk podcast to change all of that. It's hosted by Heather Caplan, RD, and like many other dietitians of the 21st century, her goal is to dispel the misconception that healthy eating is all about restriction or categorizing foods as "good" and "bad."

    Instead, she delves into conversations with her fellow dietitians so they can talk about the important courses regarding food and nutrition. They tackle subjects such as intuitive eating, weight-inclusive health care, nutrition for sports training, redefining the world "healthy," and how a healthy body image can help people (finally) achieve a healthy eating pattern that doesn't feel like dieting (because it isn't dieting). Throughout all the talking, Caplan and her guests strive to keep it real with their listeners, creating an environment where good nutrition feels accessible and understandable -- and where people of all sizes are empowered to be healthy.

    Drama-Free Healthy Living With Jess Cording

    Being healthy shouldn't be stressful. But if you're following all the trends and subscribing to all of the hype, the concept of health suddenly takes on a lot of drama. That's not the way it should be, according to registered dietitian and health coach Jess Cording, host of the podcast Drama-Free Healthy Living with Jess Cording. On her podcast, Cording takes the approach that you can achieve good health and wellness without the overwhelm, instead taking small steps to change slowly and deliberating, replacing bad habits with good ones and creating a healthy life that feels comfortable.

    Cording offers personal insight as somebody who struggles with an eating disorder and the need to always be busy. As she puts out, drinking too much green juice and doing every type of workout leads to burnout instead of fulfillment. Her approach as a dietitian and an integrative nutrition health coach is one that prioritizes the trifecta of mind-body-spirit. She still shows you how to do important things like balance your blood sugar or Excellerate your gut health, but never in a way that feels stressful or overwhelming.

    Sigma Nutrition

    For those who take satisfaction in a deep understanding of science, Sigma Nutrition is sure to be the podcast of choice. It's hosted by Danny Lennon, who interviews highly qualified experts who know nutrition science and want to educate others about it. They actually take in-depth looks at everything you need to know about food and how it affects your body -- and how you can Excellerate your body's performance by fueling it the right way. 

    Additionally, Lennon and his guests will explain how everyday people can identify unreliable or harmful pseudoscience when it comes to nutrition and feel confident that they understand all the nuances of food as fuel. Everything discussed on Sigma Nutrition is backed by reliable evidence, with all the details broken down in insightful conversation and approached critically. 

    One thing worth noting about Sigma Force is that it isn't light listening: Even though the podcast is conversation based, everyone who is talking doesn't hold back on the details or abridge anything. It's a thorough, educational approach to dietetics and health that can leave you feeling empowered and hungry for more knowledge.

    Plant Yourself

    When you're adopting a plant-based lifestyle for your health (or for the health of the planet), it might be a little confusing as to where you can go for reliable information. After all, how do you separate the facts from all of the hype? On the podcast Plant Yourself, host Howard Jacobson, Ph.D., makes it easy and approachable. He strives to provide all the information and inspiration you need to live a plant-based lifestyle that is rewarding, not stressful.

    Jacobson approaches his subject matter as somebody who previously lived an unhealthy life -- one where he was stressed, inactive, overweight, and often struggling with pain. That's why he is able to provide such an empowering path forward for people who want to overhaul their lives and get healthy. Now the author of two books, "Whole: Rethinking the Science of Nutrition" and "Proteinaholic," Jacobsen has a lot to say on the subject. While he himself is not a dietitian (his specialty is stress management), he brings on a wide variety of qualified guests to help him explore health topics.

    Killer Food Allergies

    Food allergies aren't something to mess around with. They're serious business -- after all, those with a bad food allergy could end up seriously sick or even in a life-threatening situation. This can make it tough for somebody with a food allergy to navigate the already complicated work of nutrition and healthy eating. What are they supposed to do to ensure they are getting everything they need without eating (or encountering cross-contamination with) the foods that they shouldn't?

    This is where the podcast Killer Food Allergies comes in. It's hosted by Holly Bayardo, who has experience trying to manage food allergies because of her two daughters. She knows food allergies can be complicated as well as controversial, as people get upset when you try to broach the topic. That's why Bayardo makes a point of combining her sharp sense of humor with emotional realness as she brings on qualified guests who can tell her, as the mom of children with allergies, the important information she needs to know to eat a healthy, safe, and fulfilling diet.

    Rise Up Nutrition

    If you've ever felt as if all the information out there on athlete nutrition focuses on boys and men instead of female athletes, then Rise Up Nutrition is the podcast you've been waiting for. The show's host, Lindsey Elizabeth Cortes, MS, RD, CSSD, is an accomplished athlete in addition to being a dietitian (she's served as a sports dietitian for the NCAA and many professional athletes), so she knows from personal experience the importance of fueling herself properly. She also knows that the female body isn't just a smaller version of the male body -- it has specific needs that female athletes need to address.

    In addition to giving female athletes the insight they need to fuel themselves for peak performance, Cortes addresses some of the things that her listeners should not be doing, namely subscribing to disordered eating ideology or thinking that there is a "right" look to a female athlete. Instead, she's focused on body acceptance and healthy eating that will help girls and women excel.

    Diet Doctor Podcast

    For some people, going low carb might be the way they want to go. For example, it might be how they have the easiest time managing their insulin levels or maintaining their ideal weight. But with so much unhealthy hype around low-carb diets, it's easy to start filling your diet with all the wrong foods. 

    On the Diet Doctor Podcast, host Dr. Bret Scher encourages people to look at science-based evidence instead of marketing ploys. Scher is a board-certified cardiologist and lipidologist who understands that it is possible to cut back on carbohydrates, thus getting more of your calories from fat and protein, without risking their health. Instead, Scher provides ways for people to go low-carb in a way that their health actually improves.

    But don't think that the Diet Doctor Podcast is all complex medical advice. Even though it is hosted by a medical doctor, it's refreshingly understandable, with an emphasis on trustworthiness and simplicity.

    Different podcasts exist for different health goals -- but sometimes, your primary goal is just to sift through all of the nonsense to find the reliable information. That's the approach that host Chris Kresser, MS, LAc, takes on his podcast Revolution Health Radio, which explores good lifestyle practices like nutrition and how those practices are all connected -- and once you Excellerate the way you eat, it becomes much easier to manage other aspects of your health.

    Kresser makes a point of debunking false information that permeates the nutrition and health industries, focusing instead on practical ways that people can not only ward off sickness and disease but even heal from it and achieve optimum health again. As the author of bestselling books "The Paleo Cure" and "Unconventional Medicine," as well as a clinician specializing in functional medicine, Kresser always makes sure that his approaches to his revolutionary health advice are backed by science and research.

    The Doctor's Farmacy

    As Mark Hyman, MD, host of the podcast The Doctor's Farmacy, tells people, "Food isn't like medicine. It is medicine. And it's our number-one tool for creating the vibrant health we deserve." This is the idea behind Hyman's approach to good health, and one he explores in each episode of his show. 

    He perceives the worsening of American health (and the widespread chronic disease among the American population) to be caused by agricultural, health, and food policies that keeps causing people to be sick. That's why Hyman explores the many changes that need to happen within American culture and politics if the population is going to achieve good health. Hyman encourages conversations that delve deep into the issues, and he approaches the political issues with the scientific, fact-based mindset of a doctor who wants to help people live better lives. Along the way, he shares plenty of wisdom for healthy practices that listeners can adopt until major change can be undertaken.

    Dishing Up Nutrition

    There's a lot to consider when it comes to good nutrition and healthy eating. Sometimes, you just need to take an in-depth look across the entire spectrum -- and the podcast Dishing Up on Nutrition does just that. Each episode is hosted by a different one of the many dietitians working with Nutritional Weight and Wellness, a Minnesota-based education and counseling center that focuses on the relationship between the food you eat and the way your body functions. 

    Episodes of the podcast encourage realistic practices you can apply in everyday life, with a firm understanding that there are no "good" or "bad" foods. In other words, a balanced diet contains things like healthy fat and nutrient-dense carbohydrates, as well as protein from animal sources. These are the foods that will help you have more energy and stop feeling as if you're deprived, rundown, or imbalanced. As a bonus, the podcast is supplemented by blog posts and recipe ideas.

      State Appeals Court: Hospital Not Vicariously Liable for Negligent Actions of Contracted Employees

      By Mason Lawlor | October 11, 2022

      "Because Plaintiffs' allegations against Erlanger were that of vicarious liability and not direct liability, we hold consist with Gilreath, as did the Trial Court, that there was no genuine issue of material fact and that Erlanger is entitled to a judgment as a matter of law because the GTLA prevented Erlanger from being held vicariously liable for the actions of non-employees," Chief Judge D. Michael Swiney wrote. "Therefore, we affirm the Trial Court's grant of summary judgment in favor or Erlanger."

    Killexams : Abortion and Other Social Issues Dominate Ballot Measures This Year Abortion may or may not turn out to be the decisive issue in this fall’s midterms, but it’s definitely a dominant concern when it comes to ballot measures. A total of five states will be voting on abortion rights measures, both for and against. “It’s the highest number of abortion-related ballot measures ever,” says Elizabeth Nash, a state policy associate with the Guttmacher Institute, which supports abortion rights.

    Over the past half-century, the bulk of abortion-related measures sought restrictions or outright bans on the procedure. In 2020, for example, Louisiana voters supported a measure making clear that there was no right to abortion under the state constitution. Colorado voters that year rejected a 22-week ban.

    The equation has changed, however, with the Supreme Court’s decision in June to overturn Roe v. Wade. A high-profile amendment in Kansas — with voters rejecting language that would have allowed for an abortion ban — has abortion rights supporters not only optimistic about their prospects this fall, but anticipating more ballot initiatives in years to come. “After Kansas, assumptions are shifting about what is possible on this issue,” says Chris Melody Fields Figueredo, who directs the Ballot Initiative Strategy Center, a progressive advocacy group.

    Over the past decade or so, ballot initiatives have primarily been a tool used by progressives, who have successfully pushed measures legalizing marijuana and raising the minimum wage in multiple states. That’s largely in reaction to Republicans controlling a majority of state legislative chambers since the 2010 elections.

    “If you see more liberal measures hitting the ballot, it’s because they think the legislature is not going to (address the issue),” says Craig Burnett, a Hofstra University political scientist who studies ballot measures. “If you’re not happy with what the legislature is doing, that’s what direct democracy is there to do.”

    Legislators in two states, Arizona and Arkansas, have responded to progressive victories by putting referendums on the November ballot that will make passage of initiatives more difficult in the future. We’ll examine those questions, as well as fiscal-related measures, in a subsequent article.

    For now, here’s a look at some of the major social issues on the ballot this fall:


    The most consequential abortion measure is in Michigan. The state has a 1931 law banning abortions, but it was blocked last month by a judge’s injunction. An initiative in November would enshrine abortion rights in the state constitution.

    This would not only serve to nullify the state’s nearly century-old law, but represent an entirely new approach, Nash says. “We’ve seen state constitutions interpreted as protecting abortion rights, but this is the first time we’re seeing language added to the constitution,” she says.

    Passage appears almost certain. A WDIV/Detroit News poll released Wednesday showed that supporters outnumber opponents 62 to 24 percent. The initiative had been rejected by the Michigan Board of State Canvassers on a technicality, but it was ordered onto the ballot last month by the state Supreme Court, which is controlled by a liberal majority.

    Voters in California and Vermont are also expected to approve amendments to their state constitutions to protect reproductive rights, including access to contraceptives. These measures started moving prior to the Supreme Court’s June decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization. Amidst the abortion fallout, more are likely to follow in 2024.

    In Kentucky — where an abortion ban is now in place — voters will decide whether to approve an amendment stipulating that there is no right to abortion under the state constitution. Such votes have been slam dunks in red states in recent years, passing in Alabama, Louisiana, Tennessee and West Virginia. Supporters of the Kentucky measure are taking no chances, raising about $2 million so far to promote it. As has been happening in other states since the Dobbs decision, Kentucky is now seeing women make up a disproportionate share of newly registered voters.

    The other abortion measure this fall is in Montana. It declares that infants born alive after attempted abortion procedures are “legal persons” entitled to medical care. Congress passed a “born alive” law 20 years ago and 18 states have similar measures on the books. The Montana Legislature referred this measure to the ballot. “I believe this decision should be made by not just us here at the capitol but by [the voters] back home,” state Rep. Matt Regier, who sponsored the measure, said last year. “This is a defining issue that goes directly to who we are, and I believe Montanans should have the final say.”


    Supporters of minimum wage increases are enjoying a long unbroken streak at the ballot box. Twenty-one statewide measures have passed since the last one was rejected by Montana voters all the way back in 1996.

    A measure in Nebraska would raise the hourly minimum wage in stages to $15 by 2026 and subsequently create a cost-of-living adjustment. Nevada’s measure would eliminate inflation adjustments but increase the minimum wage to $12 per hour by 2024, while allowing the Legislature to pass wage floors higher than the constitutionally mandated minimum.

    Voters in Washington, D.C., will weigh in on the question of minimum wages for tipped workers, such as restaurant servers. Current D.C. law allows employers to pay them $5.35 an hour, rather than the District’s minimum wage of $16.10, under the theory they’ll earn the bulk of their income through tips. D.C. voters approved a measure to abolish the tipped minimum system in 2018, but the city council subsequently overturned it.

    Union activity is on the table in two states. Tennessee voters will decide whether to add right-to-work language to the state constitution, barring union membership requirements as a condition of employment. Tennessee was one of the earliest right-to-work states, enacting a statute back in 1947. “Some things are so important and embedded in Tennessee’s economic success story that they should be enshrined in our state constitution,” according to the campaign backing the amendment.

    Illinois voters will decide whether to include collective bargaining rights in the state constitution, ensuring that workers can negotiate hours, wages and occupational safety and working conditions through unions or other representatives. The measure would have the effect of barring right-to-work laws. The state’s former Republican governor, Bruce Rauner, created right-to-work zones in Illinois.

    Those were banned under legislation signed by Democratic Gov. J.B. Pritzker. He backs the current amendment, which will need support from 60 percent of voters to pass.


    Last week, President Biden issued pardons for people convicted of marijuana possession at the federal level, while calling for the drug to be reclassified. Voters in 30 states got there ahead of him, legalizing marijuana for recreational or medical purposes via ballot initiatives.

    Voters in five states — Arkansas, Maryland, Missouri, North Dakota and South Dakota — will decide this year whether to legalize cannabis use by adults. The Arkansas Board of Election Commissioners had blocked a measure in that state, but its action was overturned by the state Supreme Court last month.

    South Dakota voters approved a similar measure two years ago, alongside three other states, but it was thrown out by the state Supreme Court last year.

    Marijuana measures tend to be popular. A Washington Post-University of Maryland poll released Wednesday showed the Maryland measure is supported by 73 percent of registered voters.

    Colorado voters will decide whether psychedelic plants including mescaline, psilocybin and ibogaine should be classified as “natural medicine,” with their possession, use, growth and transport decriminalized for adults 21 or over. Two years ago, Oregon voters approved a measure decriminalizing possession of all drugs in small amounts for personal use.

    Killexams : Medical Industry: Engaging To The Latest Method Of Treatment

    The medical industry strives to achieve the optimum healthcare service for its people. In completing the care, they adopt the promising system of technology to take their service effectively.

    Many people hail the wave of technological progress as the most excellent system towards success. Indeed, the fantastic nature of technology proves that industries that engage in its system get the optimum outcome.

    The medical industry needs technology to save lives and intensify its profession. One of the reasons why the medical sector engages in the use of technology is because it is crucial for health care workers to come up with the concrete result of findings so that the patient will get the proper treatment toward their accurate diagnosis.

    It is hard to make a mistake when working in the medical industry. Because of your error, people will suffer or, worse, die. The use of technology in medical treatment prevents serious people with severe diseases from dying due to the latest research that they can do to treat them.

    Indeed, the world of the medical industry acquires a lot of work, commitment, and passion for sustaining the needs of its patients.

    Moreover, the latest method of treatment that medical professionals are integrating into the marketplace is like the medsforless uk. It provides more accessible and less expensive treatment for less fortunate patients.

    Does It Exceed Patient Expectations?

    Generally speaking, the latest treatment method today creates terrific results for the community. Today, people are not afraid to consult a doctor and find out their diagnosis.

    It is due to the help that the latest method exceeds patients' expectations, increasing their confidence that they'll be treated. There are instances that the willingness of the patient impacts the psychological aspect of their health.

    The medical industry strengthens its services by using the latest devices that treat minor and major health problems.

    The Key To New Method

    Technology brings the medical industry to the front line, which people can use to get treated quickly. Over the years, health has become more convenient since its usability is open to everyone.

    Easy Access To Medical Records

    The collection of patient medical records is essential in the healthcare field. It serves as the basis of treatment and prevents medical workers' use.

    Before the industry introduced technology, the health industry used pen and paper to make medical records. Accessing it before is challenging since nurses need to look for it in the data storage room for some time.

    However, today accessing the data gets more accessible because most records are digitized. Hence some hospitals encourage the use of combined methods for security.

    Reduce Human Errors

    In the medical industry, errors negatively affect the patient's health. Medical errors are somehow one of the reasons why some patients die on the spot due to wrong diagnoses and treatment.

    Almost all hospitals worldwide use technology, especially in arriving at accurate results and diagnoses.

    Greater Care

    Medical technology increases the level of engagement with the patient. You can access the medical application easily without traveling to the hospital.

    Even if it's online care, you will still gain the treatment you need at home. Usually, medical workers who work online can provide legit prescriptions and techniques to do the honing treatment process.

    However, medical technology assistance is limited to health cases that don't need surgery.

    Is It Worth Trying?

    The medical industry's new opportunity creates a positive argument to widen the scope of treating people's illnesses. Not only it focuses on providing more excellent care to people but also new job opportunities to people.

    Because not all graduates from medical courses can attain a job after passing an exam, it is why some professionals go abroad to work and search for new opportunities.

    But because of the new platform that the medical industry is using. These professionals can continue working in the field they know best.

    The Limitation

    In the medical industry, a new platform for treating people is an aspect that people in this industry should follow.

    One of the limits of online treatment or consultation is that it is not for patients who need surgical health or are in severe pain. Online consultation is provided for patients experiencing mild symptoms you can treat at home.

    Moreover, even if online treatment has limited its capacity to provide care, an accurate prescription is the same as a client's when having an in-person check-up.


    The development of the medical industry indeed made a significant change in providing care and assistance to people. Technology certainly brings people closer and allows them to learn how to trust the healing process through the help of health professionals.

    Hence, technology also provides opportunities for health workers who have difficulty getting a job in a hospital. With online medical support, they can practice the field they studied and create a stable career on the online platform.

    Moreover, technology also lessens the technical errors in the diagnosis, leading to accurate diagnosis and treatment of patients with severe health problems.

    Killexams : Vegan pregnancy guide: What to eat, supplements & safety

    When it comes to nutrition, it’s hard to find a more controversial syllabu than vegan pregnancy. Plant-based enthusiasts point out that avoiding animal-based foods while pregnant can be equally beneficial for mother and baby, as well as the environment. Opponents, on the other hand, claim that vegan diets lack the essential nutrients needed for proper infant growth and development. Right in the middle of this debate are medical professionals and scientists, who stress that both of these groups may be right, and that the exact pregnancy outcome may heavily depend on diet quality. 

    If you are expecting, but want to continue enjoying your vegan diet, chances are you have many important questions about the foods you should eat, and the supplements you may need to take

    Here, we’ve created a vegan pregnancy guide to discuss the latest evidence on the syllabu and help answer any questions you may have. At the same time, we strongly recommend that you consult a medical professional or dietician before you make any changes to your normal dietary routine, especially during pregnancy. 

    Is a vegan diet healthy during pregnancy?

    First things first, a balanced vegan diet is a suitable approach during pregnancy, according to a major review published in the Nutrients journal. Several highly regarded nutrition societies, including the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the British Dietetic Association have also issued statements backing the safety of vegan diets for pregnant women. 

    “Whether you are vegan or an omnivore, it is very important to consume more fresh fruits and vegetables in any life stage, including pregnancy,” adds Caroline Susie, registered dietitian and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

    Caroline Susie, RDN, LD

    Registered Dietitian

    Susie is a principal at Mercer, a global health consulting firm, and a member of the company's Total Health Management Team where she leads the Nutrition and Weight Management Vertical. Additionally, she manages a private practice in Dallas. Susie is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, Health Sciences Center.

    According to the Advances in Nutrition journal, not eating enough plant-based foods when expecting a baby may increase the risk of several gestation-related issues, such as preeclampsia (a serious condition that causes high blood pressure during pregnancy and after labor) and obesity. It can also directly contribute to adverse health outcomes in the infant, including pediatric wheeze, diabetes, neural tube defects and even cancers. 

    However, it needs to be stressed that dietary requirements change significantly during pregnancy, and eating a well balanced diet is extremely important throughout this time. 

    “Well-planned vegetarian and vegan diets can be nutritious and healthy, but it is also possible to follow a vegetarian or vegan diet badly,” says Dr. Annette Creedon, nutritionist and nutrition manager at the British Nutrition Foundation. “U.K. dietary surveys indicate that animal-derived foods, such as meat and dairy, are typically important contributors of certain nutrients in our diet including iron, vitamin B12 and calcium. If meat and/or dairy foods are not part of someone’s diet, it’s important to ensure that these nutrients are provided by other dietary sources.”

    Dr. Annette Creedon, BSc (Hons), PhD, RNutr

    Registered Nutritionist

    Annette Creedon has a BSc (Hons) Nutritional Sciences and a PhD in Food Technology from University College Cork, Ireland. Following several post-doctoral contracts where she worked on dietary factors influencing bone turnover, she joined the academic staff at Harper Adams University, Shropshire, U.K. She developed undergraduate programmes in food technology and nutrition and became Head of the Food Technology and Innovation Department in 2017. 

    Indeed, results from a review in the Clinical Nutrition journal have shown that vegans are at a higher risk of not obtaining enough protein, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, vitamin B12, vitamin D, iodine, zinc, calcium, potassium and selenium. Many of these nutrients are crucial to healthy pregnancy. Vegan mothers-to-be may also have lower blood levels of certain omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, as reported in the Nutrients journal. 

    So what’s the solution? “ You must plan,” says Susie. “It is just imperative that as a future mom you are aware of the potential vitamin and mineral deficiencies that can occur when you avoid certain foods.”

    Indeed, according to the Journal of Perinatology, vegan diets may increase the risk for small-for-gestational-age newborns (smaller than the usual amount for the number of weeks of pregnancy) and lower birth weight. Similar findings were presented in the Journal of Maternal-Fetal & Neonatal Medicine, though scientists stressed that the values were still within an acceptable range. 

    “A baby could be at increased risk of low birth weight or birth defects if a parent's diet does not include enough protein, vitamin B12, vitamin D, calcium, DHA and iron,” says Abbas Kanani, superintendent pharmacist at Chemist Click. “Each stage of fetal growth is dependent on nutrient transfer so a balanced diet is essential to avoid complications.”

    How can you get the right nutrition as a vegan during pregnancy?

    General dietary guidelines in pregnancy 

    Medical guidelines stress the importance of following a healthy, balanced diet while pregnant. According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, pregnancy increases your requirements for energy and certain nutrients, particularly protein, iron, folic acid, calcium, and iodine. 

    Women also need about 340 extra calories a day in the second trimester, and 450 extra calories a day in the third trimester. They are certain foods to avoid during pregnancy too, including alcohol, caffeine, raw meats, raw eggs, soft unpasteurised cheeses, pre-prepared salads, unpasteurized juices or milks, and raw sprouts.

    And in order to obtain enough omega-3 fatty acids, mothers-to-be are encouraged to increase their fish and seafood consumption. 

    Understandably, some of these guidelines will not apply to a vegan pregnancy, and certain modifications need to be made to suit plant-based mothers-to-be. So here’s how you could apply these recommendations when you don’t eat animal-based products:


    Mothers-to-be need to increase their intake of protein to help the fetus grow and develop properly. Studies have shown that both essential and non-essential amino acids (protein ‘building blocks’) are involved in this complex process. 

    While animal-based foods contain all essential amino acids, most vegan foods lack one or more of these important compounds. That’s why they are considered as incomplete protein sources. To ensure a good amino acid intake, ‘mix and match’ different plant-based protein sources, for example, pitta bread with hummus. Another solution is to include more complete vegan sources of protein in your diet.    

    The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) for the first trimester of pregnancy is 0.8 g per kg of bodyweight. After the first trimester, it stands at 1.1 g per kg of body weight.

    Plant-based sources of protein include:

    • Soy and soy-based products, such as tofu and tempeh 
    • Seitan ('wheat meat')
    • Quinoa
    • Buckwheat
    • Chia and hemp seeds
    • Beans, peas, lentils


    Iron is crucial to the formation and proper functioning of oxygen-carrying red blood cells. As the fetus grows and develops, the mother's blood volume expands to meet its metabolic needs. According to the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, iron deficiency in pregnancy can have many negative health consequences, including maternal illness, low birthweight and premature births. Low maternal iron intake has also been linked to autism, schizophrenia and abnormal brain structure, as well as memory problems, slower speed of processing, and poorer bonding in newborns. 

    Meat, poultry and seafood are particularly rich sources of iron and may have better bioavailability in the digestive tract than plant-based sources. However, studies show that combining plant-based iron with vitamin C tends to Excellerate absorption. 

    The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) in pregnancy is 27 mg for all ages.

    Plant-based sources of iron include: 

    • Beans, peas and lentils
    • Tofu
    • Cashew nuts
    • Chia, hemp and pumpkin seeds
    • Kale
    • Dried apricots and figs


    Adequate iodine intake is essential when expecting a baby. Studies in Proceedings of the Nutrition Society suggest that severe iodine deficiency during pregnancy may cause impaired brain development in the child, with effects on cognitive and motor function, hearing and speech. The evidence is growing that even mild-to-moderate deficiency may result in subtle impairments in cognition and school performance. 

    Iodine is mainly found in animal-based foods, particularly fish and seafood. However, it can also be found in certain plants, and many food items are routinely fortified with this nutrient. 

    The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) in pregnancy is 220 mcg.

    Plant-based sources of iodine include:

    • Wholegrains
    • Green beans
    • Courgettes
    • Kale, spring greens and watercress
    • Strawberries
    • Seaweed


    Zinc is another nutrient essential to healthy pregnancy. As described in the Biology of Reproduction journal, embryos rely on this trace mineral for proper growth, development and implantation in the womb. 

    Meats, poultry, and seafood are especially rich in zinc. However, many plant-based foods also contain this nutrient, and some breakfast cereals are fortified with it as well.   

    The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) in pregnancy is 11-12 mg. 

    Plant-based sources of zinc include:

    • Beans, peas and lentils
    • Tofu
    • Walnuts and cashew nuts
    • Chia, hemp and pumpkin seeds
    • Wholemeal bread
    • Quinoa 


    Calcium is needed for the formation of bones, nerves, muscles and the heart of a baby. According to a review published in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, maternal calcium deficiency may lead to altered gene expression in their offspring. This in turn can interfere with hormone balance and increase the risk of metabolic complications in newborns.

    Although the requirements for calcium do not rise in pregnancy, many vegans do not consume enough of it. But you don’t have to resort to dairy products to get enough of this important nutrient. Most of the best milk alternatives and breakfast cereals are fortified with calcium.   

    Plant-based sources of calcium include:

    • Soy and soy-based foods
    • Beans, peas and lentils
    • Almonds and Brazil nuts
    • Sesame, chia and flaxseeds
    • Dark leafy greens
    • Cruciferous vegetables
    • Fortified milk alternatives 

    Vitamin B9 (folic acid)

    Folic acid is crucial to a healthy pregnancy, and medical professionals routinely advise mothers-to-be to supplement this nutrient. Getting enough of vitamin B9 reduces the incidence of neural tube birth defects involving the spine and the brain. The evidence is growing that this nutrient may also reduce the risk of autism in infants, and have beneficial effects on their neurodevelopment, as stated in the PLoS One journal. 

    The Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) in pregnancy is 600 mcg.

    Plant-based sources of folic acid include:

    • Leafy greens
    • Beans, peas and lentils
    • Oranges
    • Beetroot
    • Quinoa
    • Mango
    • Asparagus
    • Chia seeds and ground linseed 

    Vitamin B12 (cobalamin) 

    When it comes to vegan pregnancy, vitamin B12 intake should be of particular concern. As this nutrient is almost non-existent in plant-based foods, vegans are advised to supplement it. According to scientists from the European Journal of Haematology, low intakes of cobalamin in pregnancy may have a negative effect on children’s cognitive and motor function. It can also significantly impact their growth. 

    You can find B12 in:

    • Breakfast cereals fortified with vitamin B12 
    • Unsweetened soya drinks fortified with vitamin B12  
    • Yeast extract, such as Marmite 
    • Nutritional yeast flakes fortified with vitamin B12 

    It is also advisable that pregnant people eating a vegan diet take a supplement of B12 to ensure the body is getting the recommended daily allowance (2.6 mcg in pregnancy). 

    Vitamin D

    According to the Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition journal, not getting enough vitamin D during pregnancy may increase the risk of preeclampsia and gestational diabetes in mothers, as well as preterm births and low birth weight in newborns. 

    Vitamin D status is of particular importance in vegan pregnancy, despite the fact that the requirements for this nutrient do not change. As most sources of this vitamin are animal-based, those on plant-based diets may be at much higher risk of developing deficiency. You may need to turn to foods that are fortified with vitamin D, or take supplements.   

    Omega-3 fatty acids

    Omega-3 fatty acids can provide a host of health benefits. The evidence is growing that these nutrients may also have an impact on pregnancy. According to a recently published Cochrane systematic review, women who take omega-3 supplements during gestation may be at a lower risk of preterm birth, while their infants are less likely to present with low birth weight, die prematurely, or be admitted to neonatal care. 

    Studies in the Journal of Nutrition also found that omega-3 supplementation may have a beneficial impact on a baby’s cognitive development. However, researchers stress that these are all preliminary findings, and more studies are needed to fully understand the nature of these associations. 

    Fish and seafood are by far the best dietary sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Having said this, certain plant-based foods can help you Excellerate their intake as well, and algae-based dietary supplements are widely available.  

    Plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids include:

    • Walnuts
    • Flaxseeds, chia seeds and hemp seeds
    • Edamame
    • Seaweed and algae 


    Adequate choline intake may be another important factor in vegan pregnancy. According to a review published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association, this nutrient plays a key role in fetal brain and nervous system development. And although the exact dietary requirements for choline are unknown, pregnant women are advised to eat 450 mg of this nutrient a day.  

    Plant-based sources of choline include: 

    • Tofu and soy-based products
    • Cruciferous vegetables
    • Beans
    • Quinoa
    • Peanuts and peanut butter

    Do you need to supplement as a vegan during pregnancy?

    There is a lot of conflicting information about the safety and efficacy of different prenatal dietary supplements.

    The Obstetrical & Gynecological Survey compared pregnancy guidelines from different public health institutions. The World Health Organization (WHO), International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), and National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommend supplementing with 400 μg of folic acid a day. But when it comes to other micronutrients, they do not hold a similar stance. 

    FIGO encourages pregnant women to also supplement iron (30 mg per day starting at the first prenatal visit or as soon as possible for preventing anemia at term) and iodine (daily oral multiple micronutrient supplement that contains 150 μg of iodine). Only FIGO supports multiple micronutrient supplementation as an option in specific settings. One of such exceptions is a vegan diet.   

    FIGO advice also states that vegan mothers-to-be should consult with a nutritionist or a registered dietician before they start pregnancy. They should also be screened for vitamin D deficiency, and if necessary, take supplements with vitamin D3. 

    Caroline Susie agrees. “Vegan moms who are planning to start a family should ensure they are meeting their vitamin and mineral level needs,” she says. “Let your doctor know you are vegan and meet with a registered dietitian who can help you meet your dietary needs during this special time.  Those who are vegan want to ensure they have enough DHA, folic acid, iodine, iron, and choline. Also, a friendly reminder to check with your doctor before adding any additional supplements.” 

    Cravings on a vegan diet during pregnancy

    Cravings during pregnancy are a common phenomenon, but scientists aren’t entirely sure why they happen. 

    “It may be associated with changes in the body’s hormone levels during pregnancy, although there is little evidence to support this,” says Dr. Creedon. Some studies suggest they may not be rooted in one’s biology, but rather in various cultural, psychological, and social factors, as described in the Frontiers in Psychology journal. 

    Most expectant mothers go with their cravings, as long as they are not harmful to the baby. However, when vegan mothers start obsessing over meat, it may leave them surprised and rather confused. 

    Most experts agree that you do not need to follow the cravings, but you may try to make them more bearable by choosing to eat more of certain plant-based foods. 

    “I am a big believer in honoring your cravings and there are many meat substitute products on the market today for both eggs and chicken that are ‘vegan friendly’”, says Susie.
