Broken Bones and Being Vegan: Should You Worry? | Dr. Neal Barnard Live Q&A

Dr. Neal Barnard reviews the findings of the analysis with “The Weight Loss Champion” Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room LIVE. He has what you need to know about maintaining strong bones and getting enough calcium in a dairy-free diet.
