Every year, more than 600,000 people in the United States die from heart disease. That’s 1 out of every 4 deaths in the US every year.
Some people may be surprised to learn that more people die from sick hearts each year than drug and alcohol abuse or even accidents. But when you take a look at how sick many people actually are, it’s not that shocking.
However, it may be equally surprising for some people to learn that these terrible bouts of bad health can easily be avoided, and in many cases reversed, all by attention to your lifestyle and what you eat.
Check out this video today where Dr. Michael Greger explains about diet and heart disease. You’ll learn:
- The differences between the antioxidant content of plant foods and animal foods and how this impacts your health.
- Why so many people are resistant to using diet and lifestyle as a means of effectively treating disease.
- How people’s minds about a certain food or idea can change dramatically, as in the case of the humble, yet previously forsaken Tomato.
- Why a plant-based diet for overall health as well as the treatment of disease is so effective vs. drugs or other diet therapies.

Dr. Greger brings up some great points, including how shocking it is that so many people have died and still continue to, all because of ideas that either were accepted or unaccepted by the general population or medical community.
