Studies have found, among cardiac patients, perceived low-quality of care was associated with not receiving critical diet and lifestyle advice. Simultaneously, there is growing awareness that common chronic diseases are profoundly linked to diet and lifestyle practices. The US Preventive Services Task Force recommends all overweight and obese patients with heart disease risk factors be referred to intensive behavioral interventions. As a result, the scientific advisory panel for the US Dietary Guidelines Committee has advised more plant-based diets be recommended as a means of treating such diseases. This on-demand series addresses the research and application of plant-based diets in medical practice.
