The Purjes Foundation’s mission is to fund greater public awareness to the benefits of a plant-based, whole foods lifestyle.
We focus on the importance of changing existing attitudes and behavior about food, and its direct impact on health. We aim to enlighten the public about the healing quality of plant-based nutrition, and its ability to prevent and reverse disease. We seek to support scientific research that affirms this position.
While the Purjes Foundation supports many worthwhile causes each year, ranging from education to the environment, health takes center stage because of the personal experience of Dan and Ed Purjes.
Dan suffered a heart attack in 2011. (Read his story here.) He reversed his heart disease by converting to a plant-based, whole foods lifestyle. The improvement in his health was so dramatic that he and Ed decided to devote considerable time, energy and money to helping people avoid needless suffering and needless death from chronic diseases. We investigated the benefits of a plant-based, whole foods lifestyle through discussions with many physicians and researchers, by reading numerous research articles in peer-reviewed medical journals, and through meetings with dozens of people who reversed their own chronic diseases. We discovered that many people reversed heart disease, diabetes, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Crohn’s, and other diseases.
