Most of us know that what we eat plays a major role in our health. So just why is it that healthcare providers know so little about it?

The Standard American Diet (SAD) continues to be one of the biggest contributors to chronic disease and mortality in the U.S., killing one in five Americans every year. SAD is bankrupting our nation and needlessly driving up healthcare costs.

As I keep saying, we must have healthcare reform and that begins with each of us reforming our healthcare. Vote with your wallet and buy only whole plant based food. You will improve your health.
