No doubt, we are living in an era of fake news. Whenever we are switching channels on TV or visit social-media sites such as Facebook or YouTube etc, we can hardly save ourselves from the fake news particularly about health and medical stuff. Every day, users who are not authentic and well aware, or inexperienced doctors upload a host of counterfeit news about home-remedies and other treatments on YouTube without proper verification.

Currently, a newly published book ‘The Plant Paradox’ written by Steven Gundry, MD has captured the attention of the people around the world. The book reveals that lectins are the cause of all human disease. It can’t be digested easily, but social media is spreading fake news about how beneficial it is for us. However, Steven Gundry’s book tells us that it is the mother of all diseases.

The Plant Paradox review shows that the author of the book, Dr. Gundry has significant expertise in the field of medicine. In this book, Dr. Gundry reveals that the foods, which are considered to be healthy, are actually injurious to health, but gloomily our most popular source of knowledge provides us with wrong information. Because of lectins, these foods are harmful to health. Lectins exist in peas, beans, peanuts, legumes, lentils, wheat, and tomatoes.

The Plant Paradox review highlights the definition of lectins as ‘the protein consisting of various molecules specifically carbohydrates molecules’. The book also tells us which food we should eat and which ones we should avoid, and also how to purify the food from lectins. This book reduces the confusion of people about green food (vegetables) as well.

The Plant Paradox Review: Performance of the Book

The book performs a beneficial purpose as it presents the stories of those people who were cured after using this diet plan. The plant paradox book also tells the readers why some foods are dangerous to health for some people whereas it enhances the health of other individuals. No doubt, this book describes the low calories diet plan. The Plant Paradox review tells us that some spices are beneficial to reduce infections. Thus, one should necessarily consult this book with the dietitian before using any diet plan for one’s health.

What We Learn From It?

The Plant Paradox review highlights the quality of the author to educate us by writing such an informative book. He gives a piece of advice to reduce the use of vegetables, which are used naturally; they might become dangerous to health to some extent.  The diet plan mentioned in the book tells us three different ways of eating healthy plant food.

One research study tells about the better health of people; those who use vegetables along with grains are healthy as compared to other people. In this book, the writer has presented references from a brief research study of animals, but the same rules are not applicable for human beings.

The Plant Paradox book further recommends the people to use the supplement for better health, but many other doctors and medical researchers suggest food for the nutrition instead of using supplements. They strictly prohibit using expensive supplements.

The book recommends only 0.37 grams or kilogram protein a day. It is very short than the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of 0.80 grams or kilogram a day. But lower calories diet plan is not suitable for human beings, according to research. Some people, especially children need high calories intake.

Bottom Line

We have come to know through the other Plant Paradox reviews that many people are not fully agreed with the recommendation of diet chart of this book because it excludes much nutrition that is necessary for a large number of people. That is the only reason many people would have to skip the diet chart in the book.

Even if it is not of your type in terms of diet plans, still it is worth giving a try to find out what knowledge it carries inside about the nutrition.
