The Best Way to Prevent Death
Dr. Michael Greger, Director of Public Health for the US Humane Society and founder of NutritionFacts.org is now touring the country giving the above lecture entitled "Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death." He and his team have collected and examined all the published and peer reviewed medical literature (including controls and double-blind studies) pertaining to the top 15 causes of death among Americans. Amazingly Dr. Greger's team found that a simple change in diet prevented, and also usually reversed, 14 of them! The only cause of death unaffected by this dietary change was "accidental death," which by definition is impossible to prevent anyway. So what is this simple dietary change which can prevent and even reverse the leading causes of premature death!? Eliminate all animal products and consume only plant, or "vegan", foods. It's that simple.
