I just watched Dr. Michael Greger: "How Not To Die".
He presented quite convincing case for switching to plant-based diet.

Some excerpts:
As soon as patients stop eating an artery-clogging diet, their bodies sewere able to start dissolving some of the plague away... Suggesting that their bodies wanted to be healthy all along, but were never given a chance.

Subjects were weighed every day. If they started to lose weight, they were made to eat more food.
In fact, so much more food, many of the subjects had problems eating it all, like "not another salad". But they eventually adapted.
So, no significant alterations in body weight, despite restricting meat, eggs, dairy, and junk.
So with zero weight loss, did a plant-based diet still help?
Overall, insulin requirements were cut about 60%. And half were able to get off of insulin all together, despite no change in weight.
How many years did this take?
16 days, an average of 16 days later.
So we're talking diabetics, who have had diabetes for as long as 20 years, injecting 20 units of insulin a day, and then 13 days later, off all insulin.

The reason people have more bacteria from feces in their kitchen sink than on their toilet seat, is because people aren't rinsing their chickens in the toilet. They are rinsing them in the sink.
