OS6: Dr. Pam Popper – The Power of Plants & Overthrowing Our Broken Healthcare System
Coffee, Cookies & Cheese. This was the basic, daily diet for Pam Popper (before she was “Dr.” Pam Popper). She was overweight, unhappy and exhausted. She was 38. And she smoked 4 packs of cigarettes per day. Now, she is one of the preeminent experts in the expanding field of diet and chronic, western disease. She, like Dr. T. Colin Campbell & Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, is now at the forefront of a true revolution. One which advocates eating a whole-foods, plant-based diet, eliminating processed foods (as much as possible) and learning how to tell your doctor, “no”. In this interview, Dr. Popper most importantly shares with us the urgent need to move away from the standard western diet, embracing a whole-foods, plant-based diet (WFPB). She also discusses the tragedy of modern medicine & her new, empowered vision of healthcare.
