CNN’s chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, set out to find out if it’s possible to to become “heart attack-proof” and presents his findings in a one-hour documentary Dr. Sanjay Gupta Reports: The Last Heart Attack on Sunday.
In his documentary, Dr. Gupta speaks with doctors who are successfully helping patients prevent heart attacks, and showcases success stories such as former President Bill Clinton who had to have emergency bypass surgery and is now feeling healthier than he has in years thanks to his vegan diet.
Including and showcasing doctors such as Dr Esselstyn and Dr Ornish...
Great documentary. Although, they made Esselstyn came out slightly from the side but It was massive that he was there. I did not like the fact that Gupta was constantly making a point on how "restrictive" the diet is, but nevertheless the most important thingy was that the info is now out in the mainstream.
It was interesting to see the South-Beach Diet guy there, he seemed to embrace the ideas and research by Ornish and Esselstyn. I guess he has already made his fortune and accomplished so much in the field of cardiology and is not financially depended on the incomes generated by his book, neither did he seemed to be professionally treatened with the idea of the plant-based diet reversing your clogged arteries, which is good. He referred it as "Americas best kept secret".
Hey Peter, hey Robert, yep, found it! :)
Yes Peter, I think it is important to note that his info, apart from all that you mention, yes indeed IS becoming more and more mainstream... that is so hopeful...
I got my dad to cut down on his cheese intake ( he was vegetarian already ) and I am SO pleased... He is already doing better on less fat/cheese...
:) to all...
looks as though they have taken it down. sad
Just found it on youtube though.
yeah, i found this just now - it might still be of interest...
dr ornish proved that 80/10/10 reverses altheriosclerosis - why wasn't my wife informed? she (w/c)ould have survived!
The first diet proven to reverse atherosclerosis and prevent heart disease was developed by Dr. Dean Ornish. It's a low-fat ovo-lacto vegetarian diet that limits simple carbohydrates and eliminates saturated fats. The Ornish program recommends that 70 percent of your calories come from whole grain, high-fiber carbohydrates, 20 percent of your calories come from protein and only 10 percent of your calories come from fat. By comparison, a typical American diet is up to 50 percent fat, according to AltMD. The American Heart Association recommends that no more than 30 percent of your diet come from fat.
