The McDougall Program Under Trump Rule

Updated November 30, 2016

Healthcare is the number-one issue Americans want Donald Trump to address during his first 100 days in the White House, according a November 2016 Reuters poll. Twenty-one percent of Americans want Trump to focus on the healthcare system. Jobs took second place (16%) and immigration came in third (14%).

Healthcare, in practical terms, means that people want to heal and stay healthy. This would be simple to accomplish if Donald Trump were to learn that 80% of chronic illnesses are due to the foods we eat and that these diseases are greatly improved, and often cured, with a healthy starch-based diet (the McDougall Diet). Many powerful political leaders of today have known for decades that eating animals, vegetable oils, and other junk foods causes obesity, type-2 diabetes, heart disease, arthritis, cancers (breast, colon, and prostate), bowel disorders, and much more.

Barack Obama, our 44th president, between 1975 to 1979 he was a student of mine at Punahou High School in Honolulu, Hawaii. Known as Barry Obama back then, he clearly understood the McDougall Diet. His wife Michelle openly speaks of her own vegan diet. On January 31, 2012 she served Jay Leno on the Tonight Show a platter of food, featuring apples, baked sweet potato “fries,” and a vegan pizza made with eggplant, green peppers, and zucchini. The Obama daughters, Sasha and Malia, attend an exclusive private school in the Washington DC area that serves vegetarian meal alternatives.
