Just wanted to make readers aware of an interesting read which can also be found on video concerning the latest scientific information on a vegan diet for health and longevity. It is available on Audio.com or the actual book can be found on Amazon.com if that is your preference.
Listed below is a link to Dr. Greger's book and some basic information about the vegan diet.
In essence being a vegan based diet, meat, chicken and animal products are pretty much eliminated along with seafood and dairy products.
The primary foods are preferably fresh fruit (wide variety), fresh or frozen (possibly canned store bought OR HOME CANNED) and vegetables, greens and a wide variety of beans, chick peas etc. for fiber content and nutrients, OATMEAL for breakfast and a variety of nuts. There is a wide variety of healthy choices which will keep one from getting bored and just might allow you to get OFF your diabetes medicines, your blood pressure medicines, your statin drugs, etc. and add life to your years and years to your life.
IN other words, if you follow the regimen and diet as outlined, you could be HEALED and not need any diabetic or blood pressure meds and be free from side effects of same.
YOU MUST however FIRST seek advice from your diabetes doctor when going on this regimen and most likely take your BG levels several times a day for the first three weeks or so and work with your doctor to lay out a plan to gradually cut back and possibly eliminate your BP and Diabetic meds.
This is especially TRUE if you are on insulin shots or an insulin meter device and/or have diabetic neuropathy or other symptoms you are dealing with. DON'T JUST STOP taking insulin on your own.
New American Standard Bible
Then God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you;
