While today's medical professionals still promise to uphold the Hippocratic oath, few modern doctors know about-or adhere to-the ancient Greek physician's maxim, "Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food." But the truth of Hippocrates's words still rings true as current research reveals the healing power of plant-based, whole foods.
