Scientific Literature on Diabetes and a Plant-Based Diet
Disclaimer – “Nutrition for a Lifetime.Biz promotes a plant-based diet due to the plethora of scientific literature that favors this diet. It is important to note that this diet has been derived from a low-fat plant-based vegan/vegetarian diet. Thus, most of the literature that you will see involves vegan and vegetarian subjects. Most of our patients and clientele are not vegan or vegetarian; and, that’s ok! We are here to share our knowledge with you and your loved ones and encourage you to gain the advantageous effects of ingesting a plant-based diet. We hope you enjoy the outstanding literature below!”
