Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Heart Disease Prevention Institute was established to measure the Heart Disease preventing effect of providing impoverished families a diet that is predominately Fruits and Vegetables thru a food assistance program providing only fruits and vegetables. Because these families are dependent on the Fruits and Vegetables that are provided them. This unique situation will allow us to do a long term study of the Heart Disease prevention effects of a diet rich in Fruits and Vegetables. Scientific research concludes that the best diet for preventing Heart Disease is one that is low in fat and high in vegetables and fruits. Overall, most Heart Disease could be prevented.
