Ornish Diet is #1 for Your Heart

There are many good reasons for adopting a vegan diet: it's good for the planet, it's good for animals, and, now there is conclusive evidence that it's good for your heart as well. Dr. Dean Ornish, one of the world's leading experts on heart disease, has been promoting a plant-based diet as a cure for the diseases of affluence that afflict Americans since 1990. Recent studies now conclusively rank Ornish's approach as the optimal one for preventing heart disease.

According to the America Heart Association, the United States currently spends almost 300 billion dollars each year to treat heart disease. But what if, instead of risky surgery and expensive medicine, the cure for what ails us is as simple as making some sensible changes to our eating habits?

There are those who claim that plant-based diets, like the one advocated by Ornish, are impractical, because Americans simply won't end their love-affair with artery-clogging animal products. The simple fact, however, is that most coronary patients are never even provided with the option of trying to use diet and/or exercise as a way to cure their health problems. The medical-industrial establishment has a vested interest in promoting medication and surgery to treat heart disease, because that's where the money is.

The China Study and Ornish's own studies during the past twenty years conclusively prove that adopting a plant-based diet can virtually eliminate the risk of heart disease in most people. This is just one more reason, in a long line of very good reasons, to begin to explore the benefits of a vegan diet for you own life.
