The healthcare company’s peer-reviewed medical science journal tells physicians to promote plant-based diets to patients.
To address the rising cost of healthcare and skyrocketing rates of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, medical publication The Permanente Journal recently released an article encouraging physicians to advise patients to reduce meat, dairy, and processed food consumption and implement a plant-based diet. It points to research showing that consuming whole foods can reduce the need for medication for chronic illnesses and decrease risk of fatal ischemic heart disease, all while offering the most cost-effective prevention and low-risk medical intervention. “Healthy eating may be best achieved with a plant-based diet … Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients,” the article states.
Since my parents love and respect Kaiser, maybe this will convince them to go plant-based. That’s probably wishful thinking, but I’m still really excited about this!! Thanks for commenting Annie! Celeste:)
I would love to see that happen! Thank you for sharing!
Thanks so much for your comment!! I appreciate it! Celeste:)
