This month, the popular TV show The Dr. Oz Show aired an episode dedicated to plant-based burgers and vegan living (highlights below). The show provided an in-depth look at the Beyond Burger, exploring why the meatless burger “bleeds” and evaluated its similarities to beef. This burger is made by the Bill Gates-backed company, Beyond Meat, headed up by Ethan Brown, who was interviewed by Plant Based News last October.

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.”
