The Science of Health

The Science of Health

Food is never neutral; it either heals and restores or injures and inflames the body. Inflammation has been identified as the root cause of most of the chronic diseases that afflict people around the world. A whole plant-based lifestyle is anti-inflammatory; reducing inflammation and supporting healing. The modern diet high in animal-based foods and processed food is pro-inflammatory; injuring cells with every bite and increasing inflammation in the body. This simple truth continues to be validated by thousands of scientific studies from top researchers around the world. For more information, please see the chapter in Disease Reversal Hope! Real People. Real Stories. titled The Power of a Plant Based Plate or visit our Resource section.
