Heart-Attack Proof Diet??

Bill Clinton has been a vegan for one year. As a result, he's lost weight and feels well and has had no further need for invasive interventions to his heart.



Tune in to CNN on Saturday, August 27.  Sanjay Gupta is hosting a special called "The Last Heart Attack".  He talks to President Bill Clinton about his new diet, and to Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, author of the book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.

See a clip from the special here.  I'll defnitely be tuning in.

Heather,I've followed your blog for a while now and have been (mostly) vegan for a year.I watched "The last Heart Attack" last night and found out a lot of things I didn't know!
Is the coronary calcium stress test/scan useful in diagnosing patients at risk, but with NO real symptoms.I didn;t realize you could h ave a good stress test done, but still be at high risk.
