If you weren’t sure of the importance of diet and lifestyle on illness and health, then this short TED talk (only 3.21 min) is the one for you.
Dr. Dean Ornish, president of Preventative Medical Institute in California gets STRAIGHT to the point. He claims that some of the most common serious diseases are preventable and even reversible.
And I really love it when he refers to his use of “high tech expensive state of the art measures to prove how effective these simple, low tech, low cost interventions can be.”
Impressively, one of his studies documents that diet alone can stop and reverse the progression of prostate cancer, with a 70% remission rate!
I know he works for McDonalds and Pepsi Cola, and I appreciate that he is working to make the processed food chains provide more edible, less disease-encouraging food choices …
