Summary:
Kahn believes that a plant-based diet can prevent and reverse heart disease, but what about other chronic conditions? He presents compelling scientific research to demonstrate how you can take charge of your own health, lose weight, and reduce your risk of cancer and diabetes. He explores the links between a vegan diet and your sex drive, gut health, and brain chemistry. And he even provides a 21-day menu plan with recipes in the last quarter of the book.
