I am referring not only to the well-known ability of nutrition to prevent diseases like heart disease, cancer and diabetes but to the ability of the Whole Food Plant Based diet to actually treat and thus reverse diseases that are already diagnosed or forecast by out-of-range risk factors.
A Whole Food Plant Based diet is defined as one rich in antioxidants and complex carbohydrates. It also avoids animal-based foods, refined carbohydrates, and added fat typically used to make processed, convenience foods.
Adoption of the WFPB dietary lifestyle offers far more health benefits than the modern medical system.
For those who comply, current evidence shows that at least 90% of all cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes, upwards of 70% of all cancers, and a broad spectrum of other illnesses can be prevented, even cured.
It is now time to replace the current medical-based disease care system with a diet-based health care system...
