“The biggest obstacle in the adoption of a whole food, plant-based diet is not in the lack of evidence, but in the public awareness of what evidence already exists.” Micaela Karlsen, PhD Candidate
The Standard American Diet, or SAD, means in North America the majority of us eat 63% refined and processed foods. That means empty calories with NO nutritional benefit!
It’s estimated that as much as 80% of all healthcare dollars are spent on the treatment of conditions that are preventable!
