... from the inevitability of chronic illness to a recognition of the body's miraculous capacity to heal itself. ... from disease care, in which pills and procedures are the first line of defense, to true health care, in which whole food is our first and best medicine. ... from dependence on a burdened medical system to personal empowerment and freedom to own our health destinies.
In this new paradigm, we can achieve:
Quality of Life: Everyone deserves the right to know what foods are best for human thriving, and everyone deserves to enjoy a healthy, productive life.
Affordability: No need to spin our wheels about affordable health insurance when plant-based nutrition can make us less dependent on insurance and expensive pharmaceuticals.
Access to Health Care: When we eat to thrive, we lower the burden on our health care system, making it easier for people who really need care to get it.
Health Justice: Plant-based nutrition makes it possible for all to achieve health and well-being, no matter their background, standing up against the forces that create inequity in our society.
