To celebrate Independence Day, I am pleased to announce that, along with my dedicated classmates and following in the footsteps of nutrition activists like J Morris Hicks, I've achieved Dr T Colin Campbell's Certificate in Plant Based Nutrition!

The benefits of a healthy lifestyle are undeniable. The public is largely unaware of the preponderance of evidence supporting the health benefits of a whole-food, plant-based diet. Controversy, misunderstanding, and degenerative diseases are rampant. Campbell's eight principles provide a simple framework for understanding the complex processes underlying human health and nutrition.

Write a forty-five- to fifty-second dialogue for a public radio announcement that clearly and effectively communicates an important aspect of this message to the public.


Health news is confusing and scary - another chemical causes cancer or a gene makes mice fat or thin. One of every two people gets heart disease. Are we doomed to disease?

No! You are in control. Multiple studies show that the food you eat outweighs all of these health factors: genes, toxic chemicals, even exercise. Many doctors, for example Dr T Colin Campbell, want you to know this: Good health comes from whole plant foods like wholegrains, beans, fruits and vegetables. Disease comes from animal foods like meat, eggs, and milk, and refined foods like white flour and sugar.

What happens when you eat a plant-based diet, with too many healthy nutrients to even count? A cancer cell can't grow into a tumour, and tumours shrink. Weight loss comes easily. All your blood vessels stay clear and strong. Even risky genes don't cause disease. Study after study show these results.

The list goes on. With disease, your body is only begging you to clean up your fuel - go plant-strong today and get healthy!
