Gladys is truly convinced that a plant-based diet could solve the majority of the planet’s degenerate diseases. We now have science confirming and reconfirming that very fact. A very recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association states that “the leading cause of mortality is poor nutrition.” Gladys was fortunate to be exposed to the concept of "food as a means of disease prevention” early in life. Realizing that too many people don’t know about the power of food motivated her to host plant-based classes and pursue formal nutrition education. She has recently become a Food for Life instructor with the Physicians Committee and is looking forward to supporting local health professionals that embody the plant-based message by teaching classes in cancer prevention, weight loss, diabetes reversal, and kids’ health.
