what if?

 In the new film Forks Over Knives Dr. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn examine the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by adopting a plant-based, whole foods diet!! 
Here we have a clinician and a scientist jointly presenting their evidence to argue that heart disease, cancer and diabetes is more a choice than an inheritance.The problem is how to get those most in need to realize they have a choice for optimum health. Better diet and health is not profitable enough for global corporations - there will be no Pharmaceutical company investing millions of Dollars of PR, advertising and Lobbyists' time on this National Health Care, Welfare and Health Insurance Solution...
It has to start with each one of us... We all have to do our part, encourage eachother and spread the word.

This is why I want to be a nurse practitioner. It breaks my heart to care for people who are so sick and battling severe chronic illness. I want to influence people before they get to this stage. I want to help people make healthy food choices and change their lifestyles. I want to watch people beat cancer through nutrition and throw away their antidepressants and xanax because they discover yoga and meditation.  I believe that I can help make a change!!
