Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease – A Meet Up Group
About 81 million American adults have cardiovascular disease. Every year 1.5 million of those Americans have heart attacks and 500,000 of them die. We’ve come to believe that heart disease is unavoidable, that it’s genetic or that it arrives as a "condition of age." Yet, any country that has adopted the Western diet (also called SAD or Standard American Diet) and lifestyle has high rates of heart disease. We can do more to change this by adopting a plant based diet. It's a big part of what this website is all about.

If you can't attend in person, the website offers a wealth of information, recipes and more. Click on the Meet Up icon to visit.
