Bill Clinton Adopts a Plant-Based Diet

Former President Bill Clinton, once known for his trips to McDonald's while in the Oval Office, has gone nearly vegan.

He underwent coronary artery bypass grafting surgery in 2004.  He then had an angioplasty of one of his vein grafts in February 2010.  Here, he talks about why he changed his diet:



I wish him the best -- it sounds like so far he feels great and has lost some of the excess weight that he was carrying. I also hope that the publicity of someone as prominent as him switching to a plant-based diet inspires others to be healthy.

There are thousands of websites which provides information about how is angioplasty done. But dilseindia is one of the websites where one can get good info about the angioplasty.

I was so happy to hear of Bill Clinton's diet changes. Good for him. I hope this brings more attention from the powers that be as well as the average American.

Thanks for this one.

Wonder about the politics of that. Wonder if the US is ready for an active vegetarian president - or would that be considered too fringe or un-American?
