Recent Findings in the Prevention and Treatment of Chronic Disease:

Approximately 70% of North Americans will die as a result of a diet and lifestyle-induced disease. Yet, an estimated 90% of type 2 diabetes, 80% of heart disease and 70% of cancers are entirely preventable.

Brenda Davis, RD, is an international authority on vegetarian and vegan nutrition. She is co-author of nine books and a contributing author to a tenth. Brenda has authored numerous professional and lay articles and is a featured speaker at nutrition, medical and health conferences throughout the world. She is the lead dietitian in a diabetes intervention project in Majuro, Marshall Islands. She is a past chair of the Vegetarian Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group of the American Dietetic Association

This presentation examines the current evidence on chronic disease as it relates to plant-based diets. Are vegans, vegetarians and semi-vegetarians at a lower risk for cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes and other chronic diseases? Does eating a plant-based diet enhance longevity? Are plant-based diets effective in the treatment of these diseases? Join Brenda Davis, RD, for a thought-provoking update on plant-based diets and disease, including a summary of her research on diabetes in the Marshall Islands.
