Health and Nutrition
I believe in the depth of my heart that what we eat matters. A plant-based diet has been shown to reverse diabetes and heart disease and clear up many medical issue for the people who make the change. The following sites are one I visit regularly when I want to understand health, nutrition and food at a greater depth.
When I want to understand more about a food, a specific nutrient or a disease I start with Dr. Gregor’s NutritionFacts.org https://nutritionfacts.org/
You can also download the Daily Dozen App from the App store> Use the App on a daily basis to keep track of the foods Dr. Gregor recommends for optimal health and longevity.
There is no funding by large food or pharma. Funders are listed on his site. His videos and blogs come from science-based research. “Let’s put it to the test.” Dr. Gregor has written two books: How Not to Die and The How Not To Die Cookbook.
For instance, search for “What is the cause of Type 2 diabetes?”
Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine
Another doctor I respect very much is Dr. Neal Bernard. He is the founder of the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine
