For the past nine years, Dr. Neal Barnard has been one of my heroes; one of a small group of medical doctors who helped me discover the truth about nutrition. Although I have never met him in person, I have read all of his books, talked with him on the phone and communicated via email. He appeared on the Dr. Oz Show earlier this year and is one of the most prominent leaders of the “great food revolution of the twenty-first century.”
He is most famous for his work in reversing type 2 diabetes, but he’s also promoted the same type of healthy eating that reverses most other diseases while promoting vibrant health. In this short video, he talks about working with the employees at Geico — whose HQ (with 2500 employees) is right next door to his office in Washington, DC.
He describes a formal study that he directed at GEICO; comparing his “vegan” diet to the “normal diet” of the control group. The results are exactly what we expect from 4-Leaf eating; improved health across the board for the people eating nothing but plant-based foods.
Take five minutes to meet Dr. Barnard and his STAR pupils, Hillary and Bruce — the most dramatic “before and after” pictures of a couple that I have ever seen.
We are now in the business of conducting similar projects for any employer of more than fifty people. We call it the “4-Leaf Challenge” and, since we know that it works, we don’t bother with the control group that doesn’t make any changes. Please contact me if you’d like to talk about conducting a “challenge” somewhere near you (917-399-9700). Here is the link to one of our challenges that is now in the planning stages. “Living their mission” with “4-Leaf” at the Mystic Aquarium.
An endorsement from Dr. Barnard. After reading our manuscript earlier this year, he graciously provided this superb endorsement for which we are very grateful:
“Healthy Eating, Healthy World is more than an eye-opening, fact-filled book about the causes of poor health. It is a map leading directly to the cure. In the process, it points the way toward solving the seemingly unrelated problems of environmental destruction and world hunger. It is sensible, direct, and right.”
—Neal D. Barnard, MD, President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
