When: Mon., Dec. 7, 7-8 p.m. 2020
Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams will discuss his book, Healthy at Last: A Plant-Based Approach to Preventing & Reversing Diabetes. His mission is to tackle this chronic disease prevalent among African-Americans. Diagnosed with late stage Type 2 Diabetes and told by five doctors that he would lose his fingers, toes, and vision, and be permanently on insulin, Adams adopted a plant-based diet. His vision returned within 3 weeks, and within 3 months, he lost 35 pounds and lowered his cholesterol by 30 points.
