Transforming health by correcting the diet seems too simple, doesn't it? Maybe it seems a little radical. Perhaps it looks like quackery to some folks. However, eating plant-based is less time consuming than checking blood sugar levels all day long, less expensive than paying the doctor and hospital, and more effective in protecting precious organs and limbs than drug therapy.
A person in poor health has the perfect motivation necessary to take health back. Sick people can experience renewed health through the life-saving approach of a nutritional, plant-based diet. Michael Goldberg explains how he has seen people - who have not had diabetes as long as he - suffer from all sorts of health complications such as vision loss, obesity and amputation. Now THAT is radical!

Dr. Barnard, in the following video, explains the concept of molecular mimicry as a possible trigger for type 1 diabetes which is a result of destroyed pancreatic tissue. Studies first made a connection between cow's milk and insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (type 1 childhood diabetes) back in the early 1990's. Recent studies reveal that the elimination of childhood exposure to cow's milk protein can greatly decrease the chance of type 1 diabetes.
