Can a healthy diet help us avoid disease?

Absolutely. The Harvard studies indicate that the correct dietary choices — that’s moderate consumption of lots of vegetables and fruits, good (unsaturated) fats and good (unrefined) carbs — in conjunction with regular exercise (and of course avoiding smoking) would prevent about 82 percent of heart attacks, about 70 percent of strokes, over 90 percent of type 2 diabetes, and over 70 percent of colon cancer. By comparison, the best statin drugs can reduce heart attacks by about 20 or 30 percent.
