Finally, we need more quality and less quantity. For the past 37 years my colleagues and I at the nonprofit Preventive Medicine Research Institute, in collaboration with leading scientists and medical institutions, have published a series of randomized controlled trials and demonstration projects showing that comprehensive lifestyle changes may slow, stop and often reverse the progression of many chronic diseases.


In a clinical trial led by Gardner researchers randomly assigned individuals to four groups: He holds a Dietw of Arts summa cum laude in Humanities from the University of Texas at Austinwhere he gave the baccalaureate address.
