Joel Kahn: The Plant-Based Solution

Literati is excited to welcome cardiologist and clinical professor Dr. Joel Kahn to share with us his new book The Plant-Based Solution

About The Plant-Based Solution:
Each of us has access to the most powerful source of preventative medicine on the planet—a whole-foods, plant-based diet. With The Plant-Based Solution, leading cardiologist Dr. Joel Kahn explores how a vegan diet can help us prevent and reverse our most common chronic diseases, supported with decades of scientific research. Includes a 21-day meal plan with over 60 easy and delicious recipes from Kahn’s popular health food restaurant, the GreenSpace Café.

A passionate, compelling, and scientific argument for plant-based nutrition

Are you ready to feel better, look better, and heal the planet at the same time? Then it’s time to revolutionize your health from the inside out. With The Plant-Based Solution, leading cardiologist Dr. Joel Kahn shows how everyone can cultivate optimal well-being with a whole-foods, plant-based diet. 
Known as America’s Healthy Heart Doc, Dr. Kahn has already helped thousands of people prevent and reverse heart disease. But what about other chronic conditions, such as adult diabetes, obesity, gut health, osteoporosis, autoimmune disease, and even low sex drive? It turns out that all these conditions and more can be improved with a plant-based diet—and Dr. Kahn has the evidence to prove it.
Drawing from decades of experience, Dr. Kahn brings together a wealth of scientific research and in-depth case studies to clearly demonstrate how you can take charge of your own health. Highlights include:

  • Learn how you can lose weight, get off medication, reduce your risk of cancer, and reverse diabetes with a plant-based diet
  • Myth-busting—why most people get it wrong when it comes to calcium, protein, carbs, and more
  • The surprising links between a vegan diet and your sex drive, gut health, and brain chemistry
  • Why plants might hold the key to better aging
  • Understand exactly what’s happening inside your body, so you can decide for yourself what to eat and why

Joel Kahn, MD, is one of the world's leading cardiologists, a bestselling author, and a popular lecturer who inspires others to think scientifically and critically about the body's ability to heal through proper nutrition. Dr. Kahn serves as Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit and is founder of the Kahn Center for Cardiac Longevity. His first book, The Whole Heart Solution, was the basis of a national public TV special.
