Parallels is a powerful PSA that dramatizes the strong connection between eating a high-fat, meat-heavy diet and heart disease. The PSA parallels the experience of a man eating a fatty meal with footage of him in the operating room.

A Message from Dr. McDougall

Dr. McDougallleft quoteConstipation. Reflux disease. Colon cancer. Millions of people suffer from these and other nagging digestive disorders and debilitating diseases. Sulfurs in meats and dairy can cause bad breath. Dairy products increase stomach acid and delay ulcer healing. How can you spell relief? Not from a pill or surgery. A low-fat, cholesterol-free, plant-based diet will help you say goodbye to belly and bowel problems—and you’ll feel better than ever.

Think of the changes you are making as an adventure. An adventure into better health, increased well-being, a clearer head—and a clearer conscience! Truly healthy living is a combination of conscious eating, regular exercise, and good attitude. The food is your foundation: Keep incorporating more healthy choices that support your goals, and allow them to crowd out the less desirable.  That way, you keep building upon success.
