Plant-Based Diet Can Reverse Heart Disease

Dr. Dean Ornish says a plant-based diet can 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.

Dr. Ornish has published many articles: approximately 82% of the high risk people who went dairy-free and meat-free began to heal their arterial blockage. That’s inspiring and amazing.
