Majority of US Will Suffer From Heart Disease

Heart disease is strongly associated with hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol, and smoking, which plant-based experts such as Dr. Neal Barnard of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, can generally be prevented by eating a whole foods plant-based diet.
