One of our powerful speakers is Dr. Terry Mason, MD – Chief Operating Officer for Cook County Department of Health. When he was Chicago’s public health commissioner, Dr. Mason promoted annual “meat-free January’s.” Dr. Mason, a strict vegetarian says, “We have eaten ourselves into severe health problems, and we can eat ourselves out of them”. He believes that even people with risk factors, including family histories, are not doomed to disease.
