Boosting Health in Alaska with Plant-Based Power

Heart disease remains a leading cause of death in the United States, with the CDC reporting that one in every five deaths is due to heart disease. Adopting a plant-based diet can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25%. By incorporating regular exercise, stress management, and good sleep practices, individuals can further decrease their risk. In this episode of Line One, host Dr. Jillian Woodruff and her guests explore the benefits of a plant-based diet and naturopathic medicine.

Dr. Justin Clark serves as the host of the episode, with guests including Dr. Cameron O’Connell, ND, FABNE – a practitioner of naturopathic medicine associated with Coordinates Health Care in Kenai, Copper River, and Yukon River, and Zaneta Stetsunova – a co-founder of Anchorage VegFest and creator of the Sunday Fresh Market at O’Malley in Anchorage. The episode features resources, recommended documentaries, and easy-to-replicate recipes provided by the guests.

The live broadcast is scheduled for Wednesday, March 27, 2024 at 10 am AKDT with a repeat broadcast at 8 pm AKDT on the same day. Viewers can find Line One’s favorite health and science links on their website and can subscribe to receive updates on Line One: Your Health Connection and other Alaska Public Media podcasts.
