    Cardiologist's enthusiastic endorsement
    engineerguy posted:
    Hi folks,

    Here is a short video of an endorsement by a Cardiologist, of a plant based diet. The Cardiologist says he is falling in love with being a physician, again. His patients are getting better !!

    The doctor is referring to a movement, lead by a group of physicians, which includes
    Dr. Joel Fuhrman
    Dr. John McDougall
    The Pritikin Longevity Center
    Dr. Dean Ornish (President Bill Clinton is now on the Ornish diet.)
    Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn (Dr. Esselstyn has published the most effective treatment ever published in a medical journal, for heart disease patients.)
    Dr. Neal Barard
    and many others.

    You can Google the folks, to find their websites.

    I spend most of my time on the WebMD site

    Come join us!

    Best regards, EngineerGuy
