He names Heart Disease, Breast Cancer, Prostate Cancer, Diabetes and Obesity as the five heads of the dragon and believes the way to fight THIS dragon is with plant-based nutrition.

If you’ve seen FORKS OVER KNIVES, you know that Rip challenged his firefighter pals to try a plant-based diet.  This changed their lives!
