John Salley Says Vegan Diets Fight Diabetes in NBA’s Hoop Magazine
July 27, 2011

John Salley for Block DiabetesNBA powerhouse John Salley has teamed up with PCRM to deliver a vitally important message: A healthy vegan diet helps you prevent diabetes. John’s new ad is in the latest issue of NBA’s Hoop magazine.

Salley—who played on three championship-winning teams—also teamed up with PCRM for our “Block Diabetes” TV ad:

Meaty, greasy diets fuel diabetes: For every serving of red meat consumed, there is a 26 percent increased risk of diabetes. For processed meats, it is a 38 to 73 percent increased risk of diabetes with every serving. But PCRM’s NIH-funded research has shown that a low-fat, vegan diet can improve and even reverse diabetes. Learn more in this clip from my PBS special Taking Control of Diabetes:

Check out all of PCRM’s diabetes resources at BlockDiabetes.org. Sign up for PCRM’s 21-Day Vegan Kickstart that begins Sept. 5 to hear more of John Salley’s wisdom. He’s one of the great celebrity coaches who provides inspiration and tips.
