Factoring in the myriad health benefits that a largely unrefined, plant-based diet can provide, it’s little wonder why the animal foods industry, and the pharmaceutical companies who profit from its effects, fight so hard to maintain the status quo, doing everything they can to keep people in the dark about how much power we have over our own health.
Fortunately, there’s one major corporate sector that actually benefits from keeping people healthy: the insurance industry.
In their official journal, Kaiser Permanente, the largest managed-care organization in the US, recently advised their nearly 15,000 physicians that “healthy eating may be best achieved with a plant-based diet, which we define as a regimen that encourages whole, plant-based foods and discourages meats, dairy products, and eggs...” In their official journal, Kaiser Permanente, the largest managed-care organization in the US, recently addressed their 15,000 physicians with the following message: “Too often, physicians ignore the potential benefits of good nutrition and quickly prescribe medications instead of giving patients a chance to correct their disease through healthy eating and active living…Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients.” (52)
This simple statement should strike fear into the hearts of those who profit from unhealthy foods, and bring hope to the hearts of those who feel powerless in the face of their own health, and the health of those they care about The science of nutrition has never been clearer about which foods lay the foundation for disease, and which foods lay the foundation for optimal health.
The choice, and the power, is ours.
