The Food Revolution Summit
Speakers include leading plant-based medic, Dr. Michael Greger, MD. He is set to speak on how your food choices impact your body’s ‘resiliency’ with regard to COVID-19.
Also returning this year is Dr. Neal Barnard, MD. A key figure in medical research, he will discuss the links between health and hormones, from PMS symptoms to depression.
The interviews are conducted by best-selling author John Robbins and presented by Ocean Robbins – the network’s CEO.
Moreover, the summit gives you access to a host of handbooks, including Smart Immunity: How Diet And Lifestyle Can Help You Stay Healthy In The Pandemic And Beyond, Heart Food, Brain Food, And Eat To Defeat Cancer.
Additionally, breast cancer surgeon Kristi Funk MD will speak about ‘cancer-kicking superfoods’, and Dr. Will Bulsiewicz on achieving a healthy gut.
But it’s not just medical experts on the panel. This year features plant-based politician Eric Adams, who will speak about his experiences reversing type two diabetes, as well as how to increase nutritional education in low-income areas.
Other experts include journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell, Dr. Dean Ornish, and yoga teacher Koya Webb. Also on the panel are doctors Aysha Akhtar, Joel Fuhrman, Mimi Guarneri, David Perlmutter, Milton Mills, and activist and author Haile Thomas.
Each speaker will be interviewed over 45 minutes, which will be broadcasted free of charge.
‘Toxic food culture’
According to President, John Robbins: “When it comes to food and your health, the stakes are rising exponentially. Every day there’s a news story in the headlines to illustrate how imperative it is to take care of your health.
“If there’s ever been a time when we need to stay informed and healthy, it’s right now.
“The world is facing some big challenges, with global health concerns, and widespread fear. The truth is eating healthfully and optimizing your immune system may be more important now than ever.
“But we live in a toxic food culture. Junk food companies spend billions of dollars trying to keep us hooked. And, in all their years of medical school, most doctors learn next-to-nothing about food or nutrition.”
The summit takes place between April 24 and May 2
