After being diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1978, Ernst Erb made a radical change in his lifestyle and started eating a plant-based diet. Now, at the age of 83, he has lots of energy, does regular hikes, and manages two non-profit organizations.

"At the age of 41 and with five children, I had the choice between a very early death and an alternative. I did not deceive myself with false hopes, but uncompromisingly set out on my own path — I never believed in a sure success, but rather in the possibility of success." Ernst Erb

The aim of these videos is to show that eating a natural, plant-based diet keeps people healthy and active no matter the age or the number of hours spent in front of the computer.
