“In 2020, healthcare costs totaled $3.5 trillion, 85 percent of which was to manage diet-related chronic diseases.” In other words, we spend over 2 trillion A YEAR on disease and sickness that we cause ourselves by what we do and do not eat.

$2 Trillion Equals:

•Insulin for diabetics: $40B
•Universal Pre-K: $60B
•SNAP for 40M Americans: $80B
•Universal 4-yr-college: $70B
