So many chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and obesity, can be
reversed by eating healthier, but we are bombarded by marketing campaigns and ‘studies’ conducted by the food industry. The result is confusion and a growing epidemic of food borne illnesses that are stealing our golden years and bankrupting the health care system. New Yorkers have the opportunity to learn the facts from Dr. T. Colin Campbell, the pre-eminent nutrition researcher and author of The China Study, who will be a keynote speaker at the Nov. 16th official launch event of the nonprofit organization PlantPure Communities. Dr. Campbell serves on the Advisory Board of PlantPure Communities. Nelson Campbell, who founded PlantPure Communities, will be the MC for the evening and one of the evening's honorees. This very special launch event is a fundraiser to support the PlantPure Communities Oasis program, through which PPC is bringing healthy food and nutrition education to low-income and food-desert communities across the country.
