Some great research published in this journal. Here's just one great example for type 2 Diabetes. Spoiler alert- it CAN be reversed and most people CAN be completely cured and off all medications! - #Repost @veg_md
I'm thrilled to have published this article today on plant-based diets for preventing and treating type 2 diabetes! Many of my patients with diabetes or prediabetes have previously been told to eat more 'lean meats' and limit all carbs - advice that isn't backed up by science.
In fact, I've seen quite a few of my patients reverse their diabetes by adopting a whole-foods, plant-based diet, which is rich not only in healthful carbs, but in antioxidants, fiber, and other phytonutrients. This paper reviews the evidence that supports this approach.
To read the paper, google "Journal of Geriatric Cardiology" and click on "current issue." The whole issue, curated by my good friend and amazing colleague @drostfeld, is devoted to plant-based diets and cardiac and metabolic outcomes. There are fantastic contributions by @drostfeld, @dr_esselstyn, @julieannahever, @micaelakarlsen, Dr. Kim Williams, Dr. Thomas Campbell, and others.
Spread the news...especially among your friends in the medical community!
