PlantPure Word of the Day: Whole-Food, Plant-Based (WFPB) Diet

The whole-food, plant-based (WFPB) diet or lifestyle is what we recommend as the optimal diet for human health.

What exactly is the WFPB diet?

  • Consuming plant-based foods in forms as close to their natural state as possible (“whole” foods).
  • Eating a variety of vegetables, fruits, raw nuts and seeds, beans and legumes, and whole grains.
  • Avoiding heavily processed foods, animal products, and added salt, oil, and sugars.

Why eat a whole-food, plant-based diet? Based on many years of research and overwhelming evidence, Dr. T. Colin Campbell reports in his book Whole — Rethinking the Science of Nutrition, “People who adopt a WFPB diet find that most of their health problems were caused or significantly worsened by their old diets and resolve naturally and quickly once the body starts getting the proper fuel.”

Aside from the many benefits for personal health, there are other compelling reasons for adopting and promoting a WFPB diet: to reduce the number of animals subjected to pain and suffering due to factory farming practices and conditions, and to reduce animal agriculture’s large role in degrading the environment through air pollution, water pollution, and deforestation.

I know I tend to stick to ‘food,’ so this blog is slightly off topic.  But this is about a topic I love – kids!  My first career was teaching, and in between years of teaching, I spent some time at home with three kids.  I think it is safe to say I spent lots of time with kids, inside and outside the

If I were part of the physician-led team treating George Washington years ago and suggested leeches were “not a good idea,” there is a good chance I would not be invited to the next meeting of the local medical society. Similarly, if I were practicing dentistry and suggested that cocaine might not be the best anesthetic agent, dentists from that time would have thought that idea “strange.”
