A global switch to a plant based diet could save eight million lives by 2050 and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by two thirds. A call to switch to a whole food plant based diet follows the highly publicised launch of The Planetary Health Diet created by a group of 37 global scientists, as part of the EAT-Lancet commission in an attempt to improve human health, and save precious environmental resources as the global population increases.
As the famous saying goes: “All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” We need to pay attention to what we eat when we are sick so we can give our bodies the nutrients it needs to heal. We have replaced our trust in food as medicine with conventional treatments which offer nothing more than to alleviate the symptoms. The simple fact is, we've always had tremendous power over our health destiny and through excellent nutrition coupled with a healthy lifestyle, we can uncover the interrelated causes of underlying disease and chronic illness.
