Eric Adams, the elected leader of New York City’s largest borough, had type 2 diabetes so severe he was losing his eyesight, as well as the feeling in his legs.

Doctors told him he’d need to be on medications for the rest of his life and that he faced a high probability of blindness and amputation.

No doctor he visited ever said anything about nutrition. But Adams didn’t let his diagnosis determine his fate.

He was one of millions of people inspired by the powerful film and implementation guidance of “Forks Over Knives.” He learned about and adopted a whole-food, plant-based diet — and soon afterwards, his condition and all accompanying symptoms were completely reversed.

Now, Adams has made it his mission to promote plant-based eating as a powerful way to improve health and well-being throughout his community.
