Christina Pirello is a dynamic personality: a woman who discovered the value of healthy eating when, at age 26, she cured herself from leukemia by changing her diet dramatically. She’s an expert chef, author and Emmy Award-winning television personality who is passionate about eating a plant-based diet to prevent cancer, diabetes, obesity, heart disease and other health-related epidemics. She also believes that a plantbased diet will help you look and feel younger and more vibrant. With a Masters Degree in Nutrition, she has a broad knowledge of the science of nutrition. Christina believes that much of the information released today is influenced by corporate interest rather than biological facts or in the interest of the health of humanity. She responds ardently every time a news story comes out about how to cure America’s health problems. In addition to being the keynote speaker for the United States Defense Department’s food service convention (Defending the Health of Our Nation’s Defenders), Christina hosts her own national public television show, ‘Christina Cooks’ and has been a regular guest on numerous occasions or network news and daytime talk shows.
