Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
The Typical American Diet is Making Americans Sick

"The average person consumes 20 pounds more in total fat yearly than in 1970, which partly explains why the obesity rate among adults has more than doubled since then, when only 15 percent of Americans were obese." It's obvious that the typical American diet, full of animal products and therefore saturated fat and cholesterol, is not conducive to health. A higher intake of fruits and vegetables seems to be the best way to curb obesity and other diseases.

The vast majority of chronic diseases that people suffer are more likely to be caused by the food they eat and not by their genes. By the same token, transitioning to a well-balanced plant-based diet is what could bring them back to health!
