If you had a friend who had been a smoker all of his or her life and looked to you for advice, would you tell them to cut down to only two cigarettes a day or would you tell them to quit smoking all together? Moderation—even with the best intentions—sometimes makes it more difficult to succeed. Why should you try a totally plant-based diet? Because it can stop the development of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. The epidemic of chronic, degenerative diseases like these that are sweeping the world can be stopped and reversed with a plant-based diet. The solution lies in the choices we make about what we put on our plates.
