TWO free public talks are being held this summer in Bristol and Bath looking at how to defeat diabetes through what you eat.

They are organised by Bristol-based health charity, the Vegetarian &; Vegan Foundation – as part of their new campaign The Big D – aimed at people who either have diabetes or want to avoid it.

VVF health campaigner, Veronika Charvatova MSc, says: “The number of diabetics is sky-rocketing and people are developing this disease at a younger age than ever before. Whether you have diabetes, want to avoid it or know someone who does, come to one of our public talks and bring your friends or family with you. We’ll tell you all you need to know about the only diet that can reverse diabetes.”

As proved by clinical trials, the D-Diet produces better results than any single medication. It has the power to change your metabolism and reverse diabetes or reduce your chances of developing it to the bare minimum.

I joined Viva! as a health campaigner in 2005 after graduating from Bristol University with a PhD in molecular biology. My scientific training helped me research and write numerous reports, guides and fact sheets for Viva! including Meat the Truth, Fish-Free for Life, One in Nine (breast cancer and diet) and the substantial report on the detrimental health effects of consuming dairy; White Lies. This accompanied Viva!’s report The Dark Side of Dairy which spelt out the inherent cruelty of dairy farming. We were the first UK group to take on the dairy industry in this way, and many of our supporters go vegan after reading these reports.
