The chronic ailments that increasingly impair the lives of millions of people in our nations are not being cured by pills and medical procedures.
Our modern world overflows with tempting fatty, salty, sugary processed and animal foods that are gradually killing us. It’s increasingly considered that the latest generation may be the first to die at younger ages than their parents.
Our best chance of establishing healthy and long-lasting lifestyle and dietary habits rests on four cornerstones:
- A Whole Food Plant-Based Diet
- Regular Exercise
- Sufficient Sleep
Eating whole plant foods without added oils or salt and with minimal added sugar is arguably the healthiest and most natural way to maintain your ideal body weight. Added to this, it is sustainable and fits perfectly into a healthy lifestyle of daily exercise, sufficient quality sleep and reduction of unnecessary stress.
Research has shown some interesting facts about those eating plant-based diets, when compared with those eating conventional diets:
- greater diet satisfaction
- improved digestion
- increased energy
- better sleep
- better general & mental health
It’s even been shown to improve the quality of life and work productivity.
The only diet that has been proven to reverse heart disease is one which contains only whole plant foods. This means no animal products, processed foods or added oils. Put simply – if the foods you’re eating look just like the foods grown in the soil, then you’re probably eating the optimal diet for human health.
A more plant-based diet may help prevent, treat, and even reverse other leading diseases and causes of death, including:
- heart disease, angina
- high blood pressure
- diabetes: type 2 diabetes, prediabetes, and gestational diabetes
- kidney disease
- cholesterolemia (high cholesterol)
- multiple sclerosis
- depression and suicidal tendencies
- allergic, autoimmune, and inflammatory disorders
- E. coli toxicity
- neurological diseases
- prostatic hyperplasia
- rheumatoid arthritis
- sperm count deficiency
The fact that a WFPB diet appears to be the most effective diet for preventing, treating, and even reversing the above and many other non-communicable diseases seems to make an overwhelming case for plant-based eating.
