Heart disease remains a leading cause of death in the U.S., with the CDC reporting that 1 in every 5 deaths is due to heart disease. However, adopting a plant-based diet can reduce the risk of heart disease by up to 25%. By incorporating regular exercise, stress management, and good sleep practices, individuals can further decrease their risk.

The episode features resources, recommended documentaries, and easy-to-replicate recipes provided by the guests.
