DESCRIPTION: Not only do plant-based diets appear to prevent kidney function decline, they may also be used to treat kidney failure. Even at the same protein loads, the body is able to better handle phosphorus excretion from plant-based diets, reducing the risk of metastatic calcification. This is the second video of a two-part series about the latest discoveries on kidney function and food. See also Preventing Kidney Failure Through Diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/preventing-kidney-failure-through-diet/). This is another reason why Plant Protein is Preferable (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/plant-protein-preferable/) and food is, after all, a package deal. In addition, plant based diets can help Prevent (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-to-prevent-diabetes/) and Treat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-to-treat-diabetes/) diabetes, Prevent (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/preventing-copd-with-diet/) and Treat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/treating-copd-with-diet/) COPD, Prevent (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/preventing-arthritis-2/) and Treat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/diet-rheumatoid-arthritis/) arthritis, Prevent (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/vegetarians-versus-healthy-omnivores/) and Treat (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/cancer-reversal-through-diet/) cancer, Prevent (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/heart-attacks-and-cholesterol-purely-a-question-of-diet/) and Treat (http://nutritionfacts.org/blog/2011/10/14/heart-disease-there-is-a-cure/) heart disease, and obesity (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/thousands-of-vegans-studied/). Why don’t more providers in the medical community embrace plant-based diets? See my video, The Tomato Effect (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-tomato-effect/) and the hundreds of other videos on more than a thousand subjects at http://nutritionfacts.org/topics/.
