“The goal of Vegan Cafe Jax is to provide delicious and affordable meals that the entire community can enjoy and use as an exceptional form of preventive medicine,” the press release said.

Pulido is the founder and CEO of the eMed Multispecialty Group.

Pulido said in the press release that it is not in the “best interests of the pharmaceutical industry” to correct or treat the underlying cause of the disease, which is 99% related to diet and activity.

Instead, the industry “would rather make billions of dollars in profits selling oil-based chemicals that only marginally improve some disease symptoms, regardless of the underlying problem or the side effects they cause.”

Pulido said he was tired of pushing pills. It is time to offer treatment that is actually curative, restorative, and not associated with terrible risky complications. “

The press release stated that 10% of sales on opening day will be donated to CJ Acres Animal Rescue.
