Kaiser Permanente Encourages Plant-Based Diets

Kaiser Permanente, the largest nonprofit healthcare company in the U.S., is letting its doctors and patients know that good health starts with healthy, vegan foods: “Healthy eating may be best achieved with a plant-based diet, which we define as a regimen that encourages whole, plant-based foods and discourages meats, dairy products, and eggs…”

In an effort to address the rising cost of healthcare and skyrocketing rates of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease, the spring issue of The Permanente Journal also urges that, “Physicians should consider recommending a plant-based diet to all their patients…” Healthier foods means healthier people. Healthier people means lower healthcare costs for everyone.

Kaiser Permanente is leading the way noting that, “The future of health care will involve an evolution toward a paradigm where the prevention and treatment of disease is centered not on a pill or surgical procedure, but on another serving of fruits and vegetables.”

    Hey there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going
    to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m
    looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being
    off-topic but I had to ask!
