“I discovered that a whole foods plant based approach to eating had the benefits of not only faster recovery times for athletes, but also reduced inflammation from oxidative stress, and had the potential to improve or reverse 14 of the top 15 causes of death in the Western World. There were intervention studies showing heart disease reversal with plant based approaches. There were epidemiological studies showing plant based populations live longer. There were studies by cellular biologists showing excess proteins reduced longevity on a cellular level.”1GemmaNewman.com. 2021. About Dr Gemma Newman.
