Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Vegetarians Were Right All Along

Earlier this month, a study published in the American Medical Association’s Archives of Internal Medicine, indicated that implanting stents to stretch open cholesterol-clogged arteries in people with stable coronary artery disease was useless or worse. Seemingly, the most effective way to prevent and reverse this clogging is diet. Dr. William Roberts, editor-in-chief of the American Journal of Cardiology said, “For the build-up of plaque in our arteries to cease, it appears that the serum total cholesterol needs to be lowered to the 150 area. In other words the serum total cholesterol must be lowered to that of the average pure vegetarian. Because relatively few persons are willing to abide by the vegetarian lifestyle, lipid-lowering drugs are required in most to reach the 150 level.”

A plant-based diet has been found to prevent and reverse most of the chronic diseases that plague our society.  Still, most people are willing to subject themselves to the side-effects of drugs instead of changing their diet. We must remember that being good stewards of our bodies, temples of the Holy Spirit, means to treat our bodies with respect and reverence. A plant-based diet helps us do exactly that.
