Co-authors Shushana Castle and Amy-Lee Goodman discussed the release of their new book, "Rethink Food:100+ Doctors Can’t be Wrong" featuring doctors, experts and athletes from around the world who provide a simple solution to prevent and reverse diseases through significant diet change.

Rethink Food features contributions from more than 100 leading authorities that explain how a whole, plant-based diet can prevent and reverse today’s leading chronic conditions such as heart disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer, type 2 diabetes, arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and others. The authorities also address the associated myths about calcium and protein, the dangers of dairy, links to obesity and much more.

“The science is clear. While we have been led to believe animal protein is good for us, Rethink Food’s prominent cardiologists, weight-loss experts, orthopedic surgeons, and diabetic experts conclusively prove that a diet based on whole, plant-based foods is most directly linked to excellent health, wellness, fitness, and longevity,” Co-author Castle stated.

Co-author Goodman added: “The misinformation regarding our health is one of today’s greatest injustices. The truth is our health is not dictated by our genes. Rethink Food empowers the reader with a simple solution for a healthier, stronger and smarter you.”

According to Dr. Philip Tuso: “Every doctor, medical student, and patient should read this book because plant-based nutrition is the future of medicine. This medicine saves lives and prevents diseases. Today our villain is the healthcare crisis and the hero is plant nutrition.”

Added author of the bestselling book Reverse Heart Disease Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn: “It is unconscionable for physicians not to inform patients of this powerful option. A seismic revolution in health is possible for the United States. This revolution will not come about from the invention of another drug, another procedure or another operation; it will come about when those of us in the healing profession share with the public the lifestyle which empowers them to be the locus of control and eliminate common chronic killing diseases.”
Other prominent doctors and contributors featured in Rethink Food include Dr. Joel Fuhrman, bestselling author of Eat To Live and Disease Proof Your Child; Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, author of the bestselling book Reverse Heart Disease; Dr. T. Colin Campbell, bestselling author of national best seller The China Study; and John Pierre, renowned nutrition and celebrity fitness consultant.

  • Reversing Heart Disease & Type 2 Diabetes
