Colin T. Campbell: Resolving the Health Care Crisis

Dr. Colin T. Campbell recently spoke at TEDx about the health care crisis here in the U.S. We spend a lot of money every year on health, and there's plenty of money to be made by the pharmaceutical companies. Not only that, but the children of today are facing some rough statistics, including an increase of childhood obesity by threefold! 

Nutrition has been highly misunderstood (by me especially) and it's starting to show in our nation in the form of Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, strokes, heart attacks and so much more. Dr. Campbell has been researching nutrition for over 40 years and compiled years worth of research in the China Study. He promotes a whole food, plant-based diet and was featured in Forks Over Knives (which is currently free on Hulu).

By adopting a plant-based (vegan) diet, Dr. Campbell has found it will prevent, suspend or cure the following diseases: cancers, heart diseases, diabetes (I and II), obesity, acne, depression and Alzheimer's, just to name a few! I've personally experienced many health benefits including losing 23 lbs. (and counting!), lower cholesterol numbers and even a boost in energy and mood.
