The Pritikin Longevity Spa has been in operation since 1977, and has published over 100 articles in medical and nutritional journals. It has treated over 70,000 people, and is run by board certified physicians. Also check www.pritikin.com. ( .com and .org both are valuable. ) I followed the Pritikin program for 30 years (2 years strictly) before modifying to the Fuhrman program.
The success of Pritikin, McDougall, Ornish, Esselstyn (basically identical) and Fuhrman, all support the success of all of these programs. In my opinion, Dr. Fuhrman has improved upon these already excellent programs.View Thread
Dr. Fuhrman's website. This is an active community. Dr. Fuhrman spends quite a bit of time on the website every day. Cost is $8 per month, or $100 per year to join. I'm in my third year, and have learned a great deal, and have asked Dr. Fuhrman several questions. Members ask detailed questions on their own health, and participate on an active member to member board.View Thread
