Going Green: The Power of a Plant-Based Diet for Heart Health – Featuring Dr. Jillian Woodruff and Expert Guests on Line One

Boosting Health in Alaska with Plant-Based Power

A plant-based diet can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease, a leading cause of death in the United States. According to the CDC, one in every five deaths is due to heart disease. While many factors contribute to heart health, adopting a plant-based diet can reduce this risk by up to 25%. In addition to incorporating regular exercise, stress management, and good sleep practices, individuals can further decrease their risk.

In the latest episode of Line One, host Dr. Jillian Woodruff and her guests explore the benefits of a plant-based diet and naturopathic medicine. Dr. Justin Clark serves as the host for this episode, with guests including Dr. Cameron O’Connell, ND, FABNE—a practitioner of naturopathic medicine associated with Coordinates Health Care in Kenai, Copper River, and Yukon River—and Zaneta Stetsunova—a co-founder of Anchorage VegFest and creator of the Sunday Fresh Market at O’Malley in Anchorage.

The episode provides viewers with resources such as recommended documentaries and easy-to-replicate recipes provided by the guests. Line One: Your Health Connection is available for live broadcast on Wednesday, March 27th at 10 a.m., AKDT (Alaska Standard Time). The show will also be rebroadcasted at 8 p.m., AKDT on the same day on Alaska Public Media’s website (https://www.alaskapublicmedia/podcasts/lineone/)
