New research suggests governments could save ‘billions’ in healthcare costs if more people switched to plant-based diets.
While it is good that public attention is being drawn to this issue, it is hardly “news” that governments could save billions in healthcare costs if more people switched to plant-based diets. Such diets are well-known to be high in vitamins, minerals, and other essential micronutrients. As Dr. Rath’s Cellular Medicine approach explains, a deficiency of these dietary substances is the primary cause of diseases including cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. An optimum daily intake of micronutrients is therefore the basic preventative measure for maintaining health, as well as the safe and effective control of diseases.
