Optimizing Health in Alaska with Plant-based Nutrition | Line One

A plant-based diet has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25%, making it a significant health concern in the United States. The CDC reports that 1 in 5 deaths is attributed to heart-related complications, and while there are numerous factors that contribute to heart health, adopting a plant-based diet can greatly reduce this risk. Dr. Jillian Woodruff discusses the benefits of a plant-based diet and naturopathic medicine on the latest episode of Line One.

The episode features expert guest speakers, 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. Zaneta Stetsunova, co-founder of Anchorage VegFest and founder of the Sunday Fresh Market at O’Malley in Anchorage also provides valuable insights into promoting plant-based diets within the community.

The program offers an array of resources, documentaries and easy-to-replicate recipes to help individuals incorporate more plant-based choices into their daily lives. Listeners can tune in to the live broadcast scheduled for Wednesday, March 27, 2024 at 10 a.m AKDT with a repeat airing later that same day at 8 p.m AKDT.
