Session Track: Food Solutions for Human Health Summit

presented by 

 

Our world is facing an unprecedented epidemic of lifestyle related diseases that now impacts nearly every country, government, socioeconomic group, and family.  The shift from traditional, local, whole-food diets to highly processed, calorie dense, nutrient-poor diets is perhaps the most significant cause of this chronic disease epidemic.  If diet is the cause of this epidemic, then it can also be the cure.

Today’s ever-expanding body of research demonstrates that a whole-food, plant-based diet can prevent, suspend and even reverse the most common and deadly diseases impacting our society – diseases like heart disease, diabetes and dementia.  Research shows that when we change the type of food on our plates, we not only change OUR lives but the lives of those of the next generation.

This unique CME event will provide in-depth exploration of the most up to date research, showing that a nutrient-dense, plant-based, whole foods diet can and will prevent, suspend and even reverse many of the diet related chronic diseases negatively impacting human health.  The material will be presented without bias by medical experts and luminaries from around the country.  We hope you’ll join us.
