Dr. John McDougall (Forks Over Knives) for Surgeon General of the United States

As we confront this nation's health care crisis we need somebody in the position of Surgeon General of the United States who has a real plan and a verifiable track record of helping people to reverse illness and recover from disease. 

- John McDougall, M.D., a certied internist, has been in practice for over 30 years

- Dr. McDougall was one of the first traditional physicians of the medical "establishment" to assert that eating a plant-based diet can reverse serious health conditions such as heart disease

- Dr. McDougall has developed a nourishing , low-fat, starch-based diet that promotes a broad range of dramatic and lasting health benefits

- Dr. McDougall is the founder and medical director of the nationally renowned McDougall Program, a ten-day, residential program located in Santa Rosa, CA

- Dr. McDougall is the author of several national bestsellers including his latest release, The Starch Solution

Our past and current government leaders have been focused on questions related to private-run vs. government-run health care, which doesn't get to the root of the problem.  It's time we focus on the real solutions to our health care crisis.  

Dr. McDougall through his extensive experience in helping to heal people from disease by educating them about their food choices can bring us out of crisis and into health!

Dear U.S. Citizen,

Our nation is facing a tremendous healthcare crisis, not only in terms of the economic impact, but in the lost lives and suffering of so many from disease.  We need somebody in a Government-appointed position who understands what can and will truly heal people and solve the crisis.  Dr. John McDougall is that person.  

Physician and nutrition expert Dr. John McDougall is the founder and medical director of the nationally renowned McDougall program, which heals people through a plant-based diet and lifestyle changes.  During his 30 years of medical practice, Dr. McDougall has cared for thousands of patients.  He has developed a plant-based diet system which promotes dramatic and lasting health benefits, such as weight (fat) loss.  More importantly, the Program has, in many cases, also reversed serious illness, such as heart disease, without the use of drugs.

Dr. McDougall made a professional appearance in the award winning documentary, Forks Over Knives, which "made the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods."

Dr. McDougall's career-long mission has been to educate people about how to become healthy simply by changing the food they eat.  It has been his deep desire to one day become Surgeon General of the United States "...in order to fix the broken health of this nation."

Let us help Dr. McDougall to help us!
