Once upon a time there was a large country named Acirema where children and adults played a very popular game called Dodge the Cars. As you can imagine, this was a very dangerous game. Everywhere you looked, people were running through busy streets, even freeways, dodging the cars.
Parents taught their children this game as soon as they could walk, and entire families played this game together.
When someone was hit by a car, which happened often, there was great sorrow. And the more years they played the game, the more likely it was they would get hit. Highly respected medical specialists were trained to treat the victims of this game. Entire industries sprang up to provide artificial limbs, wheel chairs, and treatment centers.
Researchers spent endless hours and billions of dollars to determine the exact amount of force and angle of impact required to cause death. From this research, new industries sprang up to create sophisticated electronic devices people could wear to warn them prior to being hit. These devices were in high demand and were considered great scientific advances.
The financial burden of Dodge the Cars became so great that families, cities, and the federal government were at increasing risk of bankruptcy. A great debate ensued about who should pay for the constantly increasing costs of playing the game. The debate became so heated, it caused great unrest in Acirema.
Occasionally, a trouble-maker would publicly question the wisdom of playing Dodge the Cars. Some offered a fun alternative to this game that didn’t result in injury or death. However, the populace, the government, the medical establishment and researchers pooh-poohed this suggestion, calling it extreme, risky, and not in alignment with national traditions.
In spite of public resistance, a movement began slowly growing. Former Car Dodgers provided inspiration and support to to help those still playing Dodge the Cars to escape from the dangerous seduction of tradition and habit.
Some even hoped that one day, the old traditions would be overturned and children would read about Dodge the Cars in their history books.
Just like the people in Acirema, the people of America are killing themselves.
The Standard American Diet, based upon processed foods and animal products, is destroying our health. The alternative: whole, unprocessed plant foods, has the power to reverse this health crisis!
It’s my mission to help as many people as possible to pull away from the Standard American Diet and enjoy the huge benefits of a healthy, plant-based diet.
So – - – I’m really excited — I’m soon going to start a podcast called The Yes To Life Solution to provide inspiration and support for those wanting to lose weight, achieve vibrant health and experience abundant energy, and I’d love your input! My goal is to publish my first episode in early May. I’ll then publish a new episode of my show each week.
In case you’re not familiar with podcasts, it is something like a radio show that you can listen to anytime that is convenient for you, on your computer or on your mobile devices. You can access podcasts for free on iTunes.
I’m super excited to be able to use this technology to reach so many more people with this life-saving and life-supporting information! In my show, I’ll be interviewing a wide variety of experts to provide information about nutrition, food preparation, healthy habits, dealing with stress, handling social situations . . .
This is where I need YOUR input!
Please — share with me one (or more) of your main challenges in adopting a healthy plant-based diet. I’ll use your input to select topics and experts for my show, The Yes To Life Solution, to inspire and support you in solving these challenges.
Please share your challenges and suggestions for the show in the comments section below, and also feel free to email me directly by clicking here.
We are building a movement that is already saving lives, and together, we can grow this movement more quickly. Let’s put this unhappy chapter of America’s deteriorating health in the history books, where it belongs!
Will you join me in this movement?
