To score points, you need a good offensive strategy. This is true in any game, and that includes the game of life as it relates to heart health. Dr. Esselstyn, a renowned researcher, applies the principle of offense to the context of heart health. His 2007 article asserts the massively verified claims that plant-based nutrition (an animal-free diet consisting of fruit, nuts, grains, vegetables, legumes, etc.) wins hands-down over a meat diet, medication, and surgery. Plant-based nutrition, he says, dramatically minimizes the risk of heart disease and actually works to reverse it. Fully aware of the implications of his research, Dr. Esselstyn relentlessly demolishes standard medical and dietary practices, proving his point. End game! Read it all here.
