Here at PHHI we are leading the discovery and delivery of innovative plant-based solutions to advance human health. Our research addresses the role agricultural crops play in disease and illnesses. Fruits and vegetables have been shown to contain compounds that effect health and wellness both by providing nutritional components as well as enhancing the body’s ability to defend itself against chronic disease.

Simply choose a category of interest. The information is cross-referenced, so start with the topic you are familiar with or one you have questions about and dive in to learn more.
