CHICAGO, Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today the International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention (IJDRP) has released its sixth and most robust issue to date. Volume 3, No 2. of the IJDRP consists of over 100 pages of evidence-based research, case reports, commentary and more on a wide range of topics including a case series demonstrating the use of a nutrient-dense plant rich diet in cancer survivors by Joel H. Fuhrman & Deana M.Ferreri, research identifying fast food marketing's potential role in cardiovascular mortality by Mashaal Ikram, Khari Hill & Kim Allan Williams Sr, and a conversation with clinical legend Michael Klaper, discussing the use of water only fasting in treatment of obesity.
As the COVID-19 global pandemic continues to ravage the global population, awareness of, and interest in the use of plant-based nutrition and other healthy lifestyle behaviors to aid in the prevention and reversal of many chronic illnesses has grown significantly and is unlikely to slow anytime soon. This is evidenced not only by the Journal's rapidly growing reader base of over 18,000 subscribers, but also by the increased quality and quantity of the research being submitted for review. As more high-quality science demonstrating the use of nutrition to prevent and reverse disease is initiated and disseminated, the Journal's team is confident that this topic, once derided as extreme and often relegated to the obscure, is now emerging as a predominant research focus within the scientific and research communities.
"Vol 3, No 2 of the IJDRP contains a wide array of science and potential for randomized trials that further define these concepts and improve, or even prevent illness." Says IJDRP editor-in-chief Kim A. Williams, Sr., MD, MACC, FAH, MASNC, FESC. "As always, we hope that these articles stimulate thought and instigate further, the clinical trials needed in so many of these areas."
While more research and recognition of it in mainstream medical and media outlets is necessary, the investigations published by the IJDRP continue to lay the groundwork toward a future in which the free and unbiased publication of peer-reviewed scientific findings influences a new approach to not only managing chronic disease but also preventing it. So much more is needed. In a world in which, according to the CDC, 60% of the population suffers the potentially debilitating effects of at least one chronic illness; and in which such illnesses have been attributed to worsened outcomes for those who've contracted COVID-19, it is evident that new approaches to preventing or managing chronic diseases are urgently needed.
The International Journal of Disease Reversal and Prevention is the world's first and only completely free, open-access, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to documenting the science of nutrition and lifestyle to prevent, suspend, and reverse disease. It is a special publication of the Plantrician Project, a 501c3 not-for-profit corporation that educates, equips, and empowers physicians, healthcare providers and other health influencers with knowledge about the benefits of whole food plant-based nutrition.
