Evidence Based Eating

The case for change

 

Our commitment is to the health and wellbeing of the
people and the land of New Zealand through
Whole Food Plant-Based (WFPB) nutrition.

If beef is your idea of “real food for real people,” 
you’d better live real close to a real good hospital.

There are two kinds of cardiologists: vegans
and those who haven’t read the data.

OUR MISSION

To raise awareness of Whole Food Plant-Based (WFPB) nutritional benefits in New Zealand by educating and inspiring the general public, health professionals, private organisations and government institutions using evidence-based research. 

OUR VISION

Our vision is for a nation where Whole Food
Plant-Based nutrition is commonly recognised
and understood by all New Zealanders as the
most effective way to eat for optimal health and wellbeing.

DR MARTYN WILLIAMSON EXPLAINS

WFPB nutrition (calorie sufficient, no added oil) has been shown to be capable of reversing and sometimes curing ischaemic heart disease and type 2 diabetes. It does this by dealing with one of the main causes – poor nutrition.

There are a number of plausible mechanisms to explain this effect. There is evidence for similar benefits in a range of other chronic diseases prevalent in the Western World. WFPB nutrition is aligned with current epidemiological nutritional evidence which shows that greater consumption of fruits and vegetables plus fibre and whole grains are associated with improved health outcomes.

Currently New Zealanders do not routinely have access to the information that WFPB nutrition could have a positive impact on their health in such a powerful way.

Denied this option, there are Kiwis dying, suffering unnecessarily, and costing the health service large sums of money, who may otherwise not, if they had been aware of this option and decided to try it for themselves.

There are no significant side effects. It is a no cost intervention. We ask that those organisations with responsibility for providing information to the public on these diseases routinely include information about WFPB nutrition based upon the available research to allow patients to decide for themselves rather than remain in ignorance.

 THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF WFPB EATING

have confirmed that the following illnesses can be risk reduced, treated,
cured or reversed by the adoption of a whole food plant-based diet.

Ischaemic heart disease
Bowel cancers
Crohn’s disease
Multiple Sclerosis
Asthma
Bad breath

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Type 2 diabetes and hypertension

“WFPB eating is so effective for type 2 diabetes and hypertension that people on blood sugar lowering medication and insulin may experience hypos and require adjustment of dosage and those on blood pressure lowering medication may also require dosage adjustment to avoid too precipitous a drop. Both of these sitautions we recommend checking with a GP for advice,” Dr Martyn Williamson.
