After being diagnosed with heart disease in 1957, Pritikin began to research the cause of his illness. He found that cultures with primarily vegetarian diets had almost no history of the disease. He used his inventive mind to create a plant-based diet that was high in unrefined carbohydrates and low in fat. With this diet and a moderate amount of exercise, he astonishingly cured his own heart disease. Afterward, he went on to share his expertise and success through his lectures, writing and clinics.

They are truly passionate and genuine in their activism.
