Fact 1:

Did you know that two-thirds of adults in the US are overweight or obese? Obesity reduces life-expectancy by 6-14 years from all related causes. It can be prevented and reversed with a low-fat, whole-foods plant-based diet.

The obesity statistics are from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and can be found here. The reduction in life-expectancy were the findings of an NIH study as well. The prevention and reversal of obesity is discussed in this Dr. Michael Greger video.
