Couple heals kidney cancer and myasthenia gravis with a plant-based diet

Bob and Fran German both overcame life-threatening diseases by adopting a whole-food plant-based diet and changing their lifestyle in 2007.

Bob prevented a recurrence of kidney cancer after surgery and Fran healed myasthenia gravis after living with it for 16 years. And Fran’s frequent incidence of basal cell carcinoma skin cancer slowed down dramatically. Bonus!

Today, in their 80’s, Bob and Fran are spending their Golden Years inspiring others to join them in their goal to “die young, as late as possible.”

And they recently became possibly the oldest-newest YouTubers ever with their “Young at Any Age” channel!

If you haven’t tried the plant-based diet and you’re thinking about it and you keep procrastinating about it, get on it as fast as you can. It will be the smartest darn thing you have ever done in your life.” -Bob German
