In 1973, Dr Denis Burkitt’s landmark paper in the British Medical Journal described how western dietary patterns had contributed to the rise of obesity, heart disease, and other chronic diseases in the 20th century. Almost 50 years later as a healthier, plant-based approach enters the mainstream, we ask our panel of experts if a plant-based diet can save modern civilisation?
