There is NO DOUBT that WE are a sick country. AND… there is NO DOUBT that MANY of the TOP leading causes of death in this country can be prevented with a modification in DIET & LIFESTYLE! Consider this: The TOP leading cause of death (heart disease) can often be prevented and/or reversed with a plant-based diet! Read that again! Okay, again! That’s right, eating a plant-based (vegan) diet can reverse and/or prevent heart disease– the #1 killer in America! Now… how many other diets can do that? Well.. then… how many other diets are really ideal for us?
As you are chewing on that piece of ‘food for thought’, the same could be said for many of the other top leading causes of death. If you would like to read the “science” to prove it, there’s plenty of it!
Also, about a year ago, a UN report (in The Guardian) said that a “global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty, and the worst impacts of climate change”. Wow, that is a bold statement for sure. However, it’s also an honest and sobering one! The report indicates that the typical diet (rich in meat and dairy products) is NOT a sustainable one! This has been known for quite a long time actually. However, the truth of the matter is finally now coming to light. Hopefully, greed will take a back seat to global health!
The report also said: “Impacts from agriculture are expected to increase substantially due to population growth increasing consumption of animal products. Unlike fossil fuels, it is difficult to look for alternatives: people have to eat. A substantial reduction of impacts would only be possible with a substantial worldwide diet change, away from animal products.”
Although most people are still unaware, the MAJOR contributor to green house gases, climate change, deforestation, and water shortages is the animal agriculture business. Yes, the raising and killing of livestock is not only contributing to needless animal suffering and killing, but the planet at large is suffering at a great cost as well! The bottom line is that: HUMANS DON’T NEED to consume animal products (meat, eggs, and dairy products) to be healthy! Again, as mentioned at the beginning of this section, plant-based diets have been shown to reverse and/or prevent most chronic diseases!

• Pumpkin seeds (1/4 cup / 60 g)
Directions: Make noodles out of zucchini with your favorite noodle device, place any extra zucchini bits in the blender and the noodles in a bowl. Dice 1/4 of the tomatoes and add to the bowl, place the rest in the blender. Remove the kernels from the corn and add to the blender also adding the sun-dried tomatoes and pumpkin seeds. Blend well till smooth as can be, add the arugula and pulse blend till well mixed. Pour over noodles and mix well, serve immediately 🙂

*Q & A with Dr. SAM
Answer: The ‘best’ way may not always be the ‘healthiest’ way. However, I’m an advocate of healthy weight loss. To achieve this, just follow this simple premise: Treat your body correctly, and it will work correctly! In other words, focus on becoming healthier, as opposed to focusing on just losing weight. When you become healthier, any unnecessary weight your body doesn’t need will naturally disappear. As I often tell my clients and patients: “There are NO short-cuts to better health, but there really IS a ‘Quick Fix’!” (More Details Here)
