Just Established this Month –
A Way to Make a Difference

The McDougall Research & Education Foundation
A Tax Deductible Corporation – a 501 (c) (3)
Employer ID # 82-0573876

We have helped you and your family.
Now you have a chance to help us help many more people.

Every year you give careful consideration on where to make contributions for the good of others.  The McDougall Research & Education Foundation is an opportunity to make tax deductible contributions that will make a difference.  We have already done some important research with our limited funds and have plans for many more valuable projects. Currently, we are seeking funds to complete phase-2 of two studies:

Life-changing Research:

1)  The Effects of a Very Low-fat Vegan Diet on Inflammatory (Rheumatoid) Arthritis
We have shown that about 70% of people with moderate to severe arthritis will benefit from a healthy diet. Published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition 17:512, 1998, and the full article in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine 8:71-75, 2002.  Money will be spent on a larger study with a more convincing research design.  More information at  – “Diet: Only Hope for Arthritis.”

2)  Reduction of Halitosis by Eliminating Animal Proteins from the Diet
Our initial results from 120 people show changing to a low-fat vegan diet results in a significant reduction in sulfur gases (the smelly ones) in the breath.  More important than a heart attack for many people is their personal appearance, especially the way they smell. We are currently in preliminary discussions with a major university about phase-2 of this project.

Many other research projects are planned, but this takes money to gather findings worthy of publication in respectable major medical journals – so long-overdue attention can be given to the benefits of a healthy diet.

Challenging Big Industries:

The foundation is also exploring legal avenues available to correct misinformation given to consumers by various food industries, including the Dairy and Meat Industries, and by “medical” organizations, like the American Heart Association – see my August 2002 Newsletter at
