Reduce Your Heart Disease Risk by 25% with a Plant-Based Diet: Line One Hosts Discuss Advantages of Naturopathic Medicine and Easy-to-Make Vegan Recipes

Boosting Health in Alaska with Plant-Based Power

Heart disease is a leading cause of death in the United States, with 1 out of every 5 deaths being attributed to it. While there are many factors that contribute to heart health, adopting a plant-based diet can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25%. To further decrease their risk, individuals should also incorporate regular exercise, stress management, and good sleep practices.

On an episode of Line One, host Dr. Jillian Woodruff and her guests discuss the advantages of a plant-based diet and naturopathic medicine. Dr. Justin Clark serves as the host for this episode, with guests including Dr. Cameron O’Connell, ND, FABNE—a practitioner of naturopathic medicine associated with Coordinates Health Care in Kenai, Copper River, and Yukon River—and Zaneta Stetsunova—a co-founder of Anchorage VegFest and creator of the Sunday Fresh Market at O’Malley in Anchorage.

The guests share resources and recommended documentaries on this topic, as well as easy-to-replicate recipes that viewers can try at home. The live broadcast is scheduled for Wednesday, March 27th at 10 am AKDT and will be repeated at 8 pm AKDT on the same day.
