Fuhrman, Esselstyn or McDougall, who have shown again and again how to reverse serious diseases and create health using a plant-based diet.

Jeff Nelson did an incredible job, although I don’t agree with everything in the article. Some of his best points are made in the comments, read those as well. READ ARTICLE >
