Sheila Lewis Chose Diet Instead of Bypass

Shelia Lewis was diagnosed with cardiovascular disease at the age of 46.

Dr. John McDougall's excellent article, USDA Demonizes Starch, While Promoting Meat, Dairy, and Disease, explains how USDA dietary guideline policies have significantly impacted the health of our families. Dr. McDougall's article states: "The USDA has the responsibility for overseeing food safety. But, it also has an opposing responsibility to promote agricultural businesses.
