Description

From hypertension and stroke to obesity and diabetes, the science to support a shift toward a plant-based approach for disease reversal and prevention is abundant. Poor nutrition is the root cause of a myriad of health issues, health disparities, ethnic disparities and exorbitant healthcare costs. Explore how even small reductions in animal product intake can have a measurable health impact. In our dual pandemic of CVD and COVID, we need to advocate for risk factor reduction, whenever and wherever possible by improving our microbiome to reduce mortality associated with nutrition-related illnesses.
