Adding more whole, plant-based foods to your plate has been scientifically shown to help prevent, manage and sometimes even reverse numerous common diseases. It's not a diet, but rather a lifestyle shift that is widely recognised to be health-promoting and achievable for all.

I support DFN because they empower people to use nutrition to avoid and prevent disease. DFN also educate health care providers on the lifesaving benefits of a whole food plant-based lifestyle.

More than 10 years ago I suffered from a cardiovascular health scare. After discovering the power of whole food plant-based nutrition I am proud to say I have turned my health around. I live a healthy, active life...recently supporting DFN on their charity walk in the Northern Territory!

At all stages of the human lifespan, every incremental shift towards a diversified whole food plant-based diet is associated with incremental gains in longevity and vitality, and reductions in the burden of chronic disease and premature death.

I have been practicing medicine for 40 years. I only came across all the evidence for the benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition this year thanks to DFN. I have completely changed my diet and dropped my cholesterol back into the normal range. I feel amazing. I now promote WFPB nutrition to all my patients, it is now my number one lifestyle prescription.
