Wide selection of talks on plant-based nutrition & health at VegfestUK London 2018

10th August 2018

As more and more people are increasingly conscious about health, what we put into our bodies and how it impacts on our overall wellbeing gathers more attention and spotlight. This is especially true for those aspiring to go on a plant-based diet, as they attempt to counter misinformation and propaganda by the meat and dairy industries as well as the mainstream about the “dangers” of excluding animal products from their diet, and follow the right nutritional guidelines to ensure that they get all the essential nutrients to thrive on a health level. Given all this confusion, what advice should one follow then if they want to eat plant-based and be healthy?

The upcoming vegan festival VegfestUK London, which takes place on October 27-28 at Olympia London, aims to shed light on the area of plant-based nutrition, with a wide selection of topics to be discussed by a number of health experts to help visitors navigate through the muddy waters of health and nutrition on a plant-based compass, whatever their current dietary choices are.

Here’s the list of speakers and topics confirmed so far for the Health talks room, and exact times and further topics to be added to the list in the coming weeks:


Dr. Shireen Kassam – How to Explain to your Doctor the Benefits of a Vegan Diet

Gemma Newman – Medical Myth-Busting – What to say to Friends and Family when they worry about your health as a vegan
