The global interest in vegetarian diets has grown rapidly in the past decade, at least partly due to presidents and pop stars. The Adventist Church has promoted a simple plant-based diet since its earliest years, and science is now giving more evidence to support this eating pattern. This course will look at the science behind current hot topics in vegetarian nutrition, including functional nutrition, nutrigenomics, the gut microbiome, plant-based nutrition and mental health, environmental nutrition, how to correctly interpret research, and updated results from the Adventist-Health Studies.
