I know that this photo might seem brutal to some, but I find it absolutely breathtaking. To me this photo shows the beauty of food.
Did you know that according to the CDC, 75% or more of our nation’s healthcare costs are tied to the treatment of chronic diseases that are preventable—all too often a result of dietary lifestyle as featured on the International Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference website. The Standard American Diet is wreaking havoc on human health and healthcare costs. Mounting evidence compiled over decades of research shows that a shift from the toxic Western diet to a predominantly whole food, plant-based diet can prevent, as well as suspend and even reverse, a larger percentage of both chronic and autoimmune diseases.
Half of all adults in the U.S. struggle with chronic health conditions. Despite countless dollars spent on medical research and drugs to improve our health, more Americans are disabled and dying from the chronic disease than ever before.
The Good News is that most Chronic Diseases Are Preventable and Even Reversible with whole food, plant-based nutrition. This is based on decades of evidence based science.
Gaining knowledge and learning about the dysfunctional relationship, we as Americans have with food is important. Taking a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the incorrect information and how we can use simple dietary and lifestyle changes is how we will take back control or gain control over our own health. This is about building a community and a movement to say no to medications and to say yes to the healing aspects of food.
