Looking considerably thinner than during his days as a McDonald’s hamburger-eating President, Bill Clinton appeared on TV in 2011 to tout the benefits of a vegan diet. Citing Holistic Holiday at Sea keynote speakers Dr. T. Colin Campbell, author of the bestseller The China Study and Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr., author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, as two of the of his inspirations, Clinton said, “I went on essentially a plant-based diet. I live on beans, legumes, vegetables, fruits… I drink a protein supplement every morning, no dairy, I drink almond milk mixed in with fruit, and a protein powder. It changed my whole metabolism and I lost 24 pounds, and I got back to basically what I weighed in high school.”

Clinton featured his anxiety over an intensifying heart condition as the main impetus behind his choice to roll out an extreme improvement in his dietary patterns. “I did it in light of the fact that after I had this stent put in, I understood that despite the fact that it happens regularly that after detour medical procedure you lose the veins since they’re more slender and more vulnerable than supply routes, in all actuality it obstructed, which implies that the cholesterol was all the while causing the development in my vein that was a piece of my detour. I didn’t need it to happen once more. So I did this examination and it says that 82% of the individuals since 1986 who have gone on a plant-based, no dairy, no meat of any sort I eat next to no fish 82% of the individuals who have done that have started to mend themselves. Their blood vessel blockage tidies up, the calcium store around their heart separates,” he said in a broadcast meet with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
During a CNN special called “The Last Heart Attack,” former President Bill Clinton was asked by CNN medical reporter Dr. Sanjay Gupta if he is eating a vegan diet. Viewers held their breath as the former leader of the free world hesitated. Would a former US President alienate some of the most powerful political interests in the country by claiming to be on a vegan diet? Clinton put the health of the country first by admitting, since he eats no animal food, he is indeed a vegan. The veggie burger now has the Presidential seal of approval.
“I take blood tests regularly,” he apparently told Dougan, including that he would be totally vegan, “Yet [my doctor] requested that I eat natural salmon once per week.”
There is a large group of medical advantages related to a plant-based eating routine. Research shows the individuals who eat generally vegan have a diminished hazard for coronary illness, Type 2 diabetes, sourness, and a few tumors. One investigation even found that vegans live more, which is uplifting news for Clinton’s present and future grandchildren – they’ll have the option to completely appreciate investing energy with the world’s most prominent grandpa.
So what can become a vegan do for your country? Well, how about saving millions of lives and half a trillion dollars over the next ten years. There are hundreds of proven ecological and medical benefits attributed to the vegan lifestyle, but the CNN special summed it up by following two cardiac patients over about a year. Both were in their sixties, very ill, and told by the medical establishment to have by-pass surgery ASAP! One elected to not have surgery but instead followed a no-oil vegan diet recommended by former Holistic Holiday at Sea keynote speaker Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr., M.D. A year later she was feeling great and jumping rope like a high school athlete. The other patient, who elected to have surgery, was in pain a year later and getting ready for additional surgery. Dr. Esselstyn’s research has shown that a vegan diet, with no added oil, can reverse serious cardiovascular disease almost 100% of the time.
