Plant Based Nutrition and Health is the new book the Book Club will read through and discuss from Tuesday 31st July and Wednesday 1st August. We are delighted to announce that the author Stephen Walsh PhD has agreed to answer any questions which arise.

A Book Club is where a group of people get together to discuss a book; express their opinions and ask questions. If any questions aren’t answered on the night then Vegan Ireland members will first research the issues raised and then refer any outstanding questions to the author.

To join the book club it is essential to book due to limited places. Send an email to vegansireland[at] to reserve a spot.

About the Book: Plant Based Nutrition and Health is a book by the British Vegan Society.

“Acclaimed by The Sunday Times as an “accomplished data-buster” in debunking spurious nutritional claims by vested interests, the author’s background in scientific analysis enables him to analyse data, construct models and optimise choices to get the best possible results. In writing this book he has analysed the results of thousands of studies to produce straightforward recommendations for optimal health at all stages of life.”

How does it work?

Every fortnight for 6 meetings from the 31st of July, the Book Club will meet to discuss 2 to 3 chapters of Plant Based Nutrition. Participants can come to either the Tuesday or the Wednesday nights; both will cover the same chapters. (Which participants will have read prior to the date.) Everyone will have an opportunity to discuss and ask questions about these chapters.

As noted above any questions which are unanswered are sent to the author. Answers are distributed by email.

It is essential that everyone participating obtain a copy of Plant Based Nutrition. Vegan Ireland will sell copies at the Book Club. A Book Club meeting will take place next Wed, 18th July in Govinda’s Restaurant in Abbey St, Dublin 2.
