Themajor storyline traces the personal journeys of Dr. T. Colin Campbell, a nutritional scientist from Cornell University,and Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, a former top surgeon at the world renowned Cleveland Clinic. Inspired by remarkable discoveries in their young careers, these men conducted several groundbreaking studies. Their separate researchled them to the same startling conclusion: degenerative diseases like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and evenseveral forms of cancer, could almost always be prevented-and in many cases reversed-by adopting a whole foods,plant-based diet.
