Abstract:

In this TEDTalk, Dr. Dean Ornish, best known for his lifestyle-based approach to fighting heart disease, shares his views on cardiovascular disease and explains how changing our eating habits can save our lives. Author of Eat More, Weigh Less and several other best-selling books, Ornish was chosen by LIFE Magazine as one of the most influential members of his generation. He is now working with food corporations to help stop America's obesity pandemic from spreading around the globe. "[Ornish] inspires a new vision of the 'joy of living' -- convincing [patients] they can feel better, not just live longer," says Fast Company.
