Plant-Based diet can save your live
History teaches that the universality of beliefs does not make them truer. It sometimes happens that the more common the conviction, the greater the distance separates it from the truth and – thus – the more damage it can do.

We are dealing here with one of the most cohesive links between nutrition and cancer. This relationship is called:
