Dr. Robert Ostfeld Presents "Dramatic" Plant-Based Diet Case Study at American College of Cardiology Meeting

While cardiologists at the American College of Cardiology annual meeting debated the new guidelines for statins, our friend Dr. Robert Ostfeld presented a case of a man who reversed debilitating heart disease with a plant-based diet alone. The man in the study, who was in such bad shape he had trouble walking, now jogs two miles. The Boston Globe said Dr. Ostfeld's case study was "dramatic." We hope the attendees were sufficiently impressed with this far safer and more effective treatment of heart disease.

Curing Doctors' Dangerous Lack of Nutrition Education

Dr. Neal Barnard writes in The Hill about the lack of nutrition education amongst doctors: "Some might argue that dietitians—not doctors—should be responsible for offering advice about diet. But doctors don’t even know enough about nutrition to understand when to refer a patient to these specialists. Instead, they push conventional treatments like drugs and surgery, even when dietary changes could be more effective—and much less dangerous." Click here to read the entire article

A pressure cooker like the one shown above is a good way to cut down food prep times. In addition to cooking ingredients quickly, it's a great tool for making soups and stews.
