Dr. Michael Greger: How plants could extend your life
My name is Dr. Michael Greger. You might know me as the author of New York Times Bestsellers How Not to Die, How Not to Age, and How Not to Diet.
As a medical doctor, I’ve seen a rise in chronic illnesses related to lifestyle.
But my job is to comb through the latest medical research so you don’t have to. And based on the studies available, there’s something urgent I need to share with you.
Not only are plant-based foods healthy, but they could save your life.
Meat, dairy, and eggs have been connected to a whole range of illnesses, from cancer and heart disease to diabetes, liver disease, kidney disease, Parkinson’s, infections, and even suicidal depression.
In fact, processed meat has been declared a Group 1 carcinogen (cancer-causing substance) by the World Health Organization.
And while stacks of research have shown how harmful these products can be, the animal agriculture industry has tricked consumers into believing they are necessary for survival.
It’s a marketing tactic that has worked…until now.
With the majority of Americans dying from preventable diseases related to lifestyle, more doctors are tuning into the latest research about food. Consumers like you are choosing plants over carcinogens and, in many cases, life over death.
Plant-based eaters live longer on average. That’s more time to visit your loved ones, take that trip you’ve always dreamed of, or even play in the yard with your grandkids.
And by choosing plant-based foods, your quality of life could also improve.
Rather than injecting yourself with insulin just to survive or lying on the operating table for open-heart surgery, there’s a greater chance you’ll check off everything on your bucket list.
You won’t just survive. You’ll thrive.
You’ve already begun your plant-based journey with my friends at Love Veg. Perhaps your cholesterol is slowly creeping downward, you have some more pep in your step, and your body is starting to heal.
I’m here to tell you to keep experimenting, keep discovering new flavors, and enjoy the process of reclaiming your health…one plant at a time.
Your future could depend on it.
