Heart Disease reduced by increasing plant based foods

Heart disease doesn’t just happen because we get people get older. We are born with clean, flexible arteries. It is now documented that narrowing of arteries can be found in children ages 3 to 4 years old. By the time we reach 50 -60 years of age our arteries are 50 – 70% clogged.  Out of all the countries in the world 17% don’t have problems with heart disease.

In Japan in 1960′s heart disease was so rare that the  University of Tokyo Medical school had to import coronary arteries from North America to show medical students what killed every second person in the United States.  During World War II as the war progressed some  Europeans were forced to change their diets from meat, eggs, and dairy products  to beans(legumes), vegetables, grains, and potatoes and we saw a huge decrease of many diseases.

Increasing plant-based foods meals can help dramatically reduce your risk of heart disease.
