Who is Behind the Initiative?
GingerKale is an initiative by Darren, a graduate of Dr. Campbell’s Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate Program.
“I got inspired by the clear evidence showing that there are many benefits to gain by eating whole plant foods. It was the science that opened my eyes. The simplicity and the logic behind the science are so clear: Plant foods in their purest form offer the best nutrition for the human body. This simplicity is something I come back to whenever I get lost in all the information that is out there. My main inspiration has come from four doctors and scientists. This website is a dedication to the work, insights, and efforts of Dr. Greger, Dr. Esselstyn, Dr. McDougall, and Dr. Campbell.“
“I’d also like to state that I am not anti-vegan, though I do offer a critical view (based on scientific evidence) to diets that are free of animal foods but do not go any further than that. Vegan diets may still be unhealthy as they often contain products that are high in sugar and fat, which is associated with chronic diseases. I like taking the scientific evidence of healthy food choices (avoid animal products and maximize whole plant foods) and combining that with the ethical aspect of veganism. For me, these ethical and scientific components are not contradictory, but rather complementary to a lifestyle in which an individual can attain maximum human health and avoid contributing to animal suffering.“
