Dr. Ornish Reports That Plant-Based Diets Can Actually Reverse Heart Disease

According to Dr. Dean Ornish of the Preventative Medicine Research Institute, a plant-based diet with 10% or less of fat (preferably polyunsaturated or monosaturated) can actually reverse damage and reduce the risk of a heart attack. It’s worth checking with your health care practitioner to see if a plant-based diet is right for you.  Adjusting your diet may be one way to begin lowering your cholesterol.
