Interview with Dr. Fuhrman

Many people know Joel Fuhrman, M.D. from his PBS programs and best-selling books that have revolutionized the health of tens of thousands of people. Even my late mother’s health improved significantly at age 87. She had suffered a debilitating stroke, and Dr. Fuhrman’s PBS special was on TV the day she was discharged from rehab.
