Of course it’s not our genes! Our genes didn’t suddenly change 40 years ago. At the same time, though, in a certain sense, it could be thought of as all in our genes. That’s the topic of my next video The Thrifty Gene Theory: Survival of the Fattest (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-t…).

The Easy Way To Switch To A Plant-Based Diet by Michael Klaper, M.D.

Dr. Michael Klaper, is a gifted clinician, internationally recognized teacher, and sought-after speaker on diet and health. He has practiced medicine for more than 40 years and is a leading educator in applied plant-based nutrition and integrative medicine.

He is also the author of a successful book on cholesterol-free nutrition and an upcoming title (to be announced in 2018), as well as numerous DVDs and Videos on Demand, a series of “Healthy YOU Webinars,” and dozens of articles.

A source of inspiration advocating plant-based diets and the end of animal cruelty worldwide, Dr. Klaper contributed to the making of two PBS television programs Food for Thought and the award-winning Diet for a New America movie based on the book of the same name.

Dr. Michael Klaper teaches that “Health Comes From Healthy Living” and is dedicated to the healing and flourishing of all living beings and our planet.

Dr. Klaper graduated from the University of Illinois College of Medicine in Chicago (1972), served a medical internship at Vancouver General Hospital in British Columbia, Canada with additional training in surgery, anesthesiology, and orthopedics at the University of British Columbia Hospitals in Vancouver and in obstetrics at the University of California Hospitals in San Francisco.

As Dr. Klaper’s medical career progressed, he began to realize (true to what science is bearing out today) that many of the diseases his patients presented – clogged arteries (atherosclerosis), high blood pressure (hypertension), obesity, adult onset diabetes, and even some forms of arthritis, asthma, and other significant illnesses – were made worse or actually caused by the high sugar, high fat, high salt, overly processed Standard American Diet (S.A.D.).

See Dr. Klaper’s 73-minute DVD and Video On Demand, “Salt, Sugar and Oil: Could Your Favorite Flavors Be Hurting You?”

Accordingly, Dr. Klaper resolutely believes that proper nutrition (through a whole food, plant-based diet) and a balanced lifestyle are essential for health and, in many cases, can make the difference between healing an illness or merely treating its symptoms.

To learn how to truly thrive on a plant-based diet, see Dr. Klaper’s 99-minute Video On Demand, “Thriving on a Plant-Based Diet.”

In addition to his clinical practice and private consultations with patients, Dr. Klaper is a passionate and devoted educator of physicians and other healthcare professionals about the importance of nutrition in clinical practice.

Dr. Michael Klaper served as the Director of the non-profit Institute of Nutrition Education and Research from 1992 through 2015, during which time he conducted a study focusing on people who ate a completely plant-based (vegan) diet.

Necessity is the Mother of Invention 
 
These are unpredictable times in which we live, sometimes forcing us to try new things we never would have considered under normal circumstances.   
 
Some of us may be eating a bit differently and with greater concern for our health now that our dining patterns have changed
due to social distancing requirements.
 
And others (meaning me) are finding that technology may be the best
way for us to communicate when we can’t predictably
meet together in groups anymore. 
 
When you combine those two things together,  this may be the perfect opportunity for you to emerge from this difficult time stronger and healthier than you’ve ever been before!  
 
I’ve been a cardiac RN for over 25 years and we reversed my husband’s pre-diabetes with a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet (WFPBD).  We also both lost 20 pounds without even trying.  After seeing Paul’s amazing health transformation, I went on to get my certification in Plant-Based Nutrition from the
T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies through Cornell University. 
After spending almost two decades directing programs that manage chronic disease, now I want to empower people to drastically improve and frequently reverse their chronic illnesses with this life-changing knowledge! 
 
In addition to Type 2 Diabetes, a WFPBD has been shown to greatly improve and frequently reverse many other chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, erectile dysfunction, gastric reflux, arthritis, enlarged prostate, and many more.
 
 Arkansas is a “chronic illness hot-spot” and in 2017 was first in the nation for death rates from chronic respiratory diseases.  We know those that suffer from chronic disease have weakened immune systems and suffer more persistent inflammation. Arkansas’s State Chronic Disease Director, Dr. Appathurai Balamurugan has cautioned those with chronic disease to “be vigilant” about their conditions during this unprecedented global pandemic danger.
 
A WFPBD is rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients which strengthen the immune system and fight inflammation, two processes important in boosting defenses against infection.   And if there was ever a time to quickly improve an underlying chronic illness so that you can stay out of the hospital,
that time is now.   
 
We know that we can plummet diabetic’s average blood sugars and insulin requirements in as little as 16 days on a Plant-Based Diet.
Anderson JW, Ward K., Am J Clin Nutr. 1979 Nov;32(11):2312-21.
 
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn demonstrated that patients with a baseline cholesterol averaging 261 could drop to an average of 126 within 10-14 days of starting a strict WFPB diet. Within 6 weeks, these patients’ perfusion scan (non-invasive way to assess blood flow to the heart) was normal as well.

Some People Say Beans And Grains Didn’t Exist 10,000 Years Ago And This Means We Should Eat Animal Products? LDL Cholesterol Levels? Kim Allan Williams, MD

Lifestyle and Medicine for Blood Pressure: What Everyone Needs to Know About the New Guidelines

The convergence of evidence suggests that an affordable plant-based diet can help prevent and even reverse some of the top killer diseases in the Western world, and can be even more effective than medication and surgery. This could save Medicare billions of dollars, but medical training continues to underemphasize nutrition education , in part, perhaps, because lifestyle interventions go against the prevailing conventional wisdom. The USDA, in formulating its dietary guidelines, has been accused of both acting with bias and ignoring relevant research. However, the most recent guidelines take a step in the right direction by recommending a shift to a plant-based diet, which Kaiser Permanente, the largest U.S. managed care organization, has moved in the direction of supporting. Lifestyle medicine attempts to find, prevent, and treat the causes of disease. Patients should receive fully informed consent for treatment, meaning they should be informed about all of their options including dietary changes. Doctors report they don’t practice preventative cardiology because they fear their patients won’t change their diet.

Kim Allan Williams, MD, MACC, FAHA, MASNC, FESC was born in Chicago, and attended the College of The University of Chicago (1971 to 1975), followed by the University of Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine (1975 to 1979), internal medicine residency at Emory University (1979 to 1982), and overlapping fellowships in Cardiology at the University of Chicago (1982 to 1985), Clinical Pharmacology (1984 to 1985), and Nuclear Medicine (1984 to 1986). He is board certified in Internal Medicine, Cardiovascular Diseases, Nuclear Medicine, Nuclear Cardiology and Cardiovascular Computed Tomography.

Dr. Williams joined the faculty of the University of Chicago in 1986, specializing in clinical cardiology, nuclear medicine, and nuclear cardiology. He served as Professor of Medicine and Radiology and Director of Nuclear Cardiology at The University of Chicago School of Medicine until 2010. Among numerous awards and honors for his teaching in the medical school, residencies and fellowships, he was elected to Alpha Omega Alpha in 2008.

In 2010, he became the Dorothy Susan Timmis Endowed Professor of Medicine and Radiology and Chairman of the Division of Cardiology at Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit, MI. At Wayne State, he has started the Urban Cardiology Initiative – a program of education of physicians on disparities in healthcare, primary school education on cardiovascular health and community health screening in inner-city Detroit. In November 2013 he returned to Chicago as the James B. Herrick Endowed Professor of Medicine and Cardiology at Rush University Medical Center.

Dr. Williams has published numerous peer-reviewed articles, monographs, book chapters, editorials, and review articles in the field of nuclear cardiology and minority health issues, with emphasis on education and innovations in perfusion imaging and quantitation of ventricular function. His research interests include selective adenosine receptor agonists, fluorinated perfusion PET imaging, cardiac computed tomography for plaque characterization, health care disparities and payment policy, and appropriate use of cardiac imaging.

Dr. Williams has served on numerous committees and boards at the national level, including the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), the American Heart Association (AHA), the American Medical Association (AMA), the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the Certifying Board of Nuclear Cardiology, the Certifying Board of Cardiac Computed Tomography, the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and the Association of Black Cardiologists (ABC). He served as President of ASNC from 2004 to 2005. He served as Chairman of the Board of ABC from 2008 to 2010. He also served on the Cardiovascular Disease Examination Board of the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM-CV) until 2012. He served as the president of the ACC from 2015 to 2016.
