The Dr. Oz Show just dedicated an entire episode to the vegan diet. A three minute segment can be seen in the video below.
In the episode, “The Beginner’s Guide to Going Vegan Without Going Crazy,” Dr. Oz confidently told his audience that the vegan diet will be the “single biggest movement of 2017,” before busting a few myths about the lifestyle.
Dr. Oz noted that 3.7 million Americans now eat a vegan diet, and that the lifestyle has increased significantly in popularity in recent years: “we all probably know someone who’s vegan,” he noted on his show on Thursday.
“And here’s the big deal,” he said. “Studies continue to show people who live like this end up being healthier, feeling better, and living longer.”
The segment is the latest of Dr. Oz’s recent discussions of vegan diets, including an appearance earlier this month on The Wendy Williams Show where he touted the benefits of ditching animal products for the new year as part of the "21 Day Weight Loss Breakthrough."

How can we help nonhuman animals as much as possible? A good answer to this question could spare billions from suffering and death, while a bad one could condemn as many to that fate. So it’s worth taking our time to find good answers.
