Heart disease is a major health concern in the United States, as statistics from the CDC show that one in five deaths in the country is attributed to heart-related complications. However, adopting a plant-based diet can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25%. When combined with regular exercise, stress management, and quality sleep, individuals can further lower their chances of developing heart issues. Dr. Jillian Woodruff discusses the benefits of a plant-based diet and naturopathic medicine on the latest episode of Line One: Your Health Connection.

The episode 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. Additionally, Zaneta Stetsunova, co-founder of Anchorage VegFest and founder of the Sunday Fresh Market at O’Malley in Anchorage shares insights into promoting plant-based diets within the community.

The program offers an abundance of resources such as documentaries and easy-to-replicate recipes to help individuals incorporate plant-based choices into their daily lives. Listeners can tune into 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. For more updates on Line One: Your Health Connection and other Alaska Public Media podcasts subscription options are available to stay informed.

In addition to this episode’s content on heart health and plant-based diets, local residents in Anchorage are actively engaged in growing their own vegetables as part of a commitment to healthy living and sustainability. Kavelina Torres captured this effort through her photography for APRN-Anchorage.

Overall, incorporating plant-based diets into our daily lives can have significant benefits for our overall health and wellbeing while also contributing to sustainable living practices within our communities.
