Nutrition related headlines are typically dominated by sensational and often false claims. It is critical that we elevate the quality of nutrition related discussions by disseminating research of only the highest integrity. Millions of lives depend upon it.”
CHICAGO (PRWEB) January 20, 2020
The International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention, now in its second year of publication, has announced today that it will release three scientific editions in 2020; one in March, one in June and one in September. This expansion comes as a result of a steady flow of high-quality submissions to the fledgling journal that is dedicated to publishing peer-reviewed scientific research that documents the efficacy of a whole food, plant-based dietary lifestyle to prevent and reverse disease. The IJDRP also announced that it will begin the rolling publication of research and commentaries immediately upon their availability, thus maximizing its ability to inform new lifesaving therapies with timely publication of critical research.
According to the CDC, nearly 60% of the population suffers the potentially debilitating effects of at least one chronic illness. These illnesses are the leading factor in the nation’s crippling $3.3 trillion in healthcare costs. With global populations facing similar grim statistics, it is obvious that change is needed. While there is already a large body of evidence demonstrating the efficacy of a whole food plant-based dietary lifestyle to prevent or reverse nearly 80% of chronic lifestyle related illnesses, more innovative and quality research on the subject is needed to continue to inform and influence emerging medical therapies.
“Nutrition related headlines are typically dominated by sensational, contradictory and often false claims.” says IJDRP editor-in-chief Kim A. Williams, Sr., MD, MACC, FAH, MASNC, FESC. “It is critical that we elevate the quality of nutrition related discussions by disseminating research of only the highest integrity. Millions of lives depend upon it.”
The International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention’s first scientific edition was published in the spring of 2019 and was followed by a second in the fall of 2019. The IJDRP is the world’s first and only completely free, open-access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to documenting the efficacy of whole food, plant-based diet and lifestyle interventions to prevent, suspend and reverse disease. It is published without any outside industry influence.
The IJDRP is a special project of the Plantrician Project, a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation dedicated to educating, equipping and empowering physicians, healthcare providers and other health influencers with knowledge about the indisputable benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition.
