World Turned Upside Down!
Just imagine if you read of a diet that produced these headlines:
"Heart disease rates tumble! 40,000 heart patients taken off critical list - misery lifted for relatives and friends. Top heart surgeon says most heart ops avoidable."
"Cancer deaths slump!"
"Millions taken off 'fatty' list."
"Diabetes figures fall for first time."
"Food poisoning cases tumble - records no longer worth maintaining."
What diet could it possibly be? That's easy! The same diet that children should be eating now so they enjoy good health throughout their lives - a well-balanced vegan or vegetarian diet.
If statistics were reversed and most of the population became vegan or vegetarian, these headlines could be accurate. Unbelievable isn't it? The scientific evidence to justify them is there in abundance and this guide will show just how strong it is.
