It’s exciting to see more and more doctors getting on board with the benefits of a whole food, plant-based diet!
A peer-reviewed study published in the Canadian Family Physician’s Journal confirms that what we eat greatly influences our personal health; it also points out that the typical Standard American Diet (SAD) is strongly linked to obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, unhealthy cholesterol levels, hypertension, Alzheimer’s disease and certain cancers.
The author encourages us that a plant-based journey begins with the first step. Take yours—reduce your meat intake, open your mind to the interconnectedness of human choices and planetary health, and, most important, eat your fruits, grains, and vegetables!
P.S: Don’t forget to consider the bigger picture. Maintaining and caring for the gift of your incredible body pleases the Lord!
When you eat or drink or do anything else, always do it to honor God. (1 Cor 10:31, CEV)
