A presentation by John Kelly, M.D..
Far from being a foolhardy fashion or far-out fad, plant-based nutrition is one of the most carefully studied subjects in the scientific literature and, increasingly, in the medical literature as well. Dr. Kelly will present the latest information on plant diets that is sure to surprise and inform us all. He will also present some of the astounding results from his own research on treating diabetes in the Marshall Islands. He will explain why the emerging fields of nutrigenomics and epigenetics are bringing plant nutrition to the forefront in nutrition science and medicine. His bringing together of cutting-edge nutrition science, lifestyle medicine, and genetic research together with a focus on veganism is sure to be both informative and entertaining.

He is Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Nutrition in the Loma Linda University School of Public Health where he is the lead researcher for the Lifestyle Research Initiative.
