Go Vegan Radio's Bob Linden interviews Dr. Neal Barnard about how a vegan diet can help people with diabetes. Dr Bernard states that: "A low fat vegan diet is very likely the most powerful diet ever devised for people with diabetes...We believe that this diet should be the first treatment that is contemplated by anyone who has got this disease."
Diabetes is a serious disease. It is a leading cause of blindness, kidney failure and is one of the principle reasons for gangrene and amputation. Please share this important interview with friends or family members who have diabetes.
