Clinton says:

I went on essentially a plant-based diet.

I did all this research, and I saw that 82 percent of the people since 1986 who have gone on a plant-base, no dairy, no meat of any kind, no chicken, no turkey – I eat very little fish, once in a while I’ll have a little fish – if you can do it, 82 percent of people have begun to heal themselves
