Learn How to Heal Yourself Event in the Bronx

Phenomenal Event last night with Bronx City Councilman Fernando Cabrera, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams and Dr. Robert Ostfeld as keynote speaker. The occasion was the introduction of the #banthebaloney bill in the City Council and the introduction of meatless Mondays in the Bronx. The background was the presentation of the Whole Foods, Plant-Based diet as the alternative.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams told the story of his own complete healing from a disastrous diabetes diagnosis with complications, and subsequently the complete healing from diabetes of his 80-year old mother, who had been an active diabetic for 40 years.

The story of city Councilman Fernando Cabrera was almost more powerful than that, for when he was hospitalized, he was given 24 hours to live and he recovered completely with the whole foods, plant-based diet.

Both recognize the issue that school lunches establish bad habits for life and are introducing the #banthebaloney bill in the NY City Council to get processed meats out of school lunches, as they are no classified by the World Health Organization as a class 1 carcinogen, along with plutonium, tobacco and asbestos.

 Dr. Robert Ostfeld discussed the full range of health conditions that are improved dramatically by the Whole Foods, Plant-Based diet, more so than by any drug known to man:
Skin Appearance,
Ear Infections,
Periodontal disease,
Acid Reflux,
Laryngeal cancer,
Lung disease,
Breast cancer,
Heart disease,
Colon cancer,
Lower back pain,
Sexual Function,
Athletic performance,

In other words, what else do you need to know? Well maybe the following table, comparing the level of nutrition that you get on a plant-based diet versus an animal foods based diet.

The differences are laughable:
                                           Plant-based versus Animal-Based
                                           (Nutrition per 500 cal consumed)   

Cholesterol (mg)                0                             137
Fat (g)                                4                              36
Protein (mcg)                    33                            34
Beta-carotene (mcg)         29,919                     17
Dietary  fiber (g)               31                            0
Vitamin C (mg)                 293                           4
Folate (mcg)                     1168                         19
Iron (mg)                          20                             2
Magnesium (mg)              548                           51
Calcium (mg)                   545                           252

As I said: What else do you need to know?

Dr. Ostfeld also made mention that the results from the #WFPB diet for diabetics are 3x better than from a standard ADA (American Diabetes Association) diet, as documented recently by Dr. Neal Barnard in the new release of his book, Dr. Barnard's Program for Reversing Diabetes.
