What we're about

Plant-Based Treasure Valley (http://plantbasedtv.org)

We are people based in Idaho’s Treasure Valley interested in living a whole food, plant based lifestyle. Our gatherings are open to anyone wishing to learn about or who needs support in the practice of whole food plant-based eating. We get together to share our experiences, knowledge, challenges, and solutions in living, cooking, and being in the world as it is today.

We recognize that there are many benefits to personal health, to our environment and to our society in switching to a whole food, plant-based diet. This switch is radical because it is so different from the culture we have lived in our whole lives – so different from the pervasive Standard American Diet (SAD). We have come to realize that this change often requires self-education and we can benefit from others who have walked the path before. We have found that a small group supporting casual conversation about how to make this dietary shift can be very beneficial, fun, and exciting.

WFPB Support - Special Topic: Heart Disease Pt 2

Online event

In this special edition, let's talk about heart disease. Specifically, we will discuss the soon-to-be released NutritionFacts.org video series focused on statins and lipoprotein (a). Topics will include: * Who should be taking statins? * How common are statin side effects? * What is lp(a) and what can be done about it? * Can cholesterol be too low? * How effective is lifestyle intervention vs drugs and surgery? Let's meet online via Zoom! To protect the integrity of the meeting, you must RSVP on our Meetup. When you RSVP, Meetup will show you the link necessary to join the meeting (it will begin with something like "https://us02web.zoom.us ..."). Additionally, I have set a reminder so that everyone who RSVPs will also get an email with the needed information. Either one of these options is enough to get you in, but both require you to RSVP.
