2013 Food Revolution Summit speaker Dean Ornish, M.D., is one of the greatest medical pioneers in the world. His research has demonstrated—for the first time—that integrative changes in diet and lifestyle can reverse heart disease, turn on health-promoting genes, slow aging, and slow or even reverse early-stage prostate cancer.

Here is an excerpt from his million+ views TED talk, “The World’s Killer Diet.”

Here are highlights from Dr. Dean Ornish’s wildly popular 2009 TED talk, “Your Genes Are Not Your Fate.”

For the 2013 Food Revolution Summit, bestselling author John Robbins interviewed Dr. Dean Ornish and 23 other food revolutionary leaders. For the recordings and transcripts of all those interviews, plus a huge collection of bonus resources, check out the Empowerment Package here.

    We are not destined by our genes but by what we eat and the chemicals we are exposed to. We can change that and the Summit has the answers.

    Thanks to Dr. Dean Ornish and many other medical doctors who have come to see that the way to health is nutritionally-based and not drug-based people are healthy and vital again. Some of the other doctors are, Dr. John McDougall, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Neal Barnard, etc. So many people have completely reversed their illnesses through a change in lifestyle – including food, emotional health, relationships, exercise, stress reduction, etc.

    I am vegan now for over 22 years and will never have it any other way. G-d has steered me in this direction and I want to spread the message to as many as possible through the information I share with the public. I have a site with numerous articles, interviews, product reviews and my 42 day coconut water cleanse. I believe in only using what is of the highest purity, integrity and environmental consciousness.

    You can click on my name above and it will take you to my site. If you are interested in any of my services as a vegan chef and educator, please leave a comment on my blog. I am available to travel to any location to assist and guide you to a life that will be filled with joy, love, positive energy, health and vitality. Don't wait till it is almost too late because then it may not be able to help you.

    One thing you can do right now to become healthier is eat ALOT more fresh fruit and vegetables, even if they are not organic. Best to make sure is non-GMO, especially corn, soy, Hawaiian papaya, yellow and green zucchini.

    May G-d give us all the strength to have complete trust and faith in Him and to find the best we can do for ourselves and live a life that is whole and holy.

    Chef Mindy :-)

    I am reading the "Food Revoloution" I am convinced that the lifestyle advocated in John's book is the way to go. Thank you, I have now only recently been made aware of the issues around diet and its impact on health. I am sad to say that my lifestyle was far from ideal. I was 40 lbs overweight, I had HTN of 155 / 90 and had been on medication for this. At 54 I have seriously reassessed my lifestyle. I stopped drinking the 2 glasses of wine every evening, I stopped adding salt, I stopped drinking coffee and consequently drinking milk, I now have next to no dairy, removed the Yoghurt on my rolled oats muesli, I have almost removed meat from my diet, I have reduced the number of eggs I eat. I have been exercising, walking 3 miles most mornings, I am eating a lot more fruit, vegetables and whole grains. I have also reduced my portion size of my main meals. Consequently over 3 months I have lost 40 lbs and reduced my BTN to 120 / 70 and have general had feeling of well being. My doctor has been impressed and has taken me off my medication, I have not been taking this for many months. I am moving from a vegetarian to a vegan life style. Recently I have found that I have lost the feeling of well being and I seem to have a degree of "mental fog" the clarity of mind that I had experienced during stages of weight loss and times when my weight stabilized has alluded me over the last three weeks? I would really like to continue with a vegan lifestyle and would welcome any advice or recommendations. Thank you again John for providing the research, your knowledge and wisdom in your book.
