The United States faces a significant health concern as heart disease remains a leading cause of death, with statistics from the CDC indicating that 1 in 5 deaths is attributed to heart-related complications. However, adopting a plant-based diet can substantially reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25%, making it an essential aspect of maintaining good health.

Local residents in the community are actively engaged in growing their own vegetables, showcasing their commitment to healthy living and sustainability. This is evident in the photo captured by Kavelina Torres, APRN-Anchorage, which highlights the effort put into cultivating fresh produce.

In the latest episode of Line One: Your Health Connection, Dr. Jillian Woodruff delves into the advantages of a plant-based diet and naturopathic medicine on promoting overall health and wellness. The program features guest experts in the field, including Dr. Cameron O’Connell, ND, FABNE, a doctor of naturopathic medicine specializing in medical care at Coordinates Health Care in Kenai, Copper River, and Yukon River. Zaneta Stetsunova, co-founder of Anchorage VegFest and founder of the Sunday Fresh Market at O’Malley in Anchorage also contributes valuable insights into promoting plant-based diets within the community.

The program offers a wealth of resources, documentaries and easy-to-replicate recipes to support individuals in incorporating plant-based choices into their daily lives. Listeners can tune in to the live broadcast scheduled for Wednesday, March 27th at 10 a.m AKDT with a repeat airing later that same day at 8 p.m AKDT.
