A little more than 15 years ago, a young woman named Sabrina Nelson was told by her doctor that she had a fatal illness that had a 40% chance of killing her – painfully – in ten years or less.
And if the illness didn’t kill her, the treatment might.
Not the kind of news a young woman wants to hear.
She and her husband Jeff, a filmaker, embarked on a massive research program to find out what alternatives there were to…death.
Surprisingly, the solution in Sabrina’s case turned out to be pretty simple: get off the Great American Death Diet, the diet that 90% of all Americans eat every day and think nothing.
The illness reversed and has never returned.
Sabrina and Jeff now have three wonderful – and healthy – kids: Miranda, Nina and Willie.
Sabrina and Jeff shared their experience on a little web site VegSource .com which over time has grown to the biggest info clearing house on medically proven healthy eating.
That’s how I discovered them.
My own health was not great. Not bad, but not great.
I was overweight, tired often, and stressed out. I got sick a lot and my energy was all over the place.
I read the material on the Nelson’s web site and watched their film “Processed People” and decided to give this new – too me – approach to eating a try.
Two and half years later, I’m 20 pounds lighter, far more energetic, more resistant to colds and flus, and just all around enjoying life a whole lot more.
Just paying attention to what I ate and eating delicious healthy food instead of the junk most Americans think is normal. And I spend LESS on food now, not more.
Two years ago, John Robbins, who helped popularize this better way of eating with his book “Diet for a New America” started a program to bring this knowledge to low income people.
No one needs help and options with their food choices more than people on low incomes – and no one has less access to this help.
The pilot program which ran in Sacramento through a community food bank generated results that exceeded all of our expectations.
If you’re interested in learning more for yourself and perhaps supporting this very worthy project, here’s a video showing the results this way of eating has had for people.

If you’ve ever been wondering “Gee, how do I thank Ken for all the help he’s given me over the years?” :-), supporting this worthy work would be a good way to do it.
These are good people doing good and important work that has the potential to benefit millions. It might even help you or someone you love.
