Chicago Mayor endorses Fire Engine 2 Diet

Hi folks,

Here's a quick 3 minute video from the Chicago Mayor endorsing the Engine 2 Diet, with Rip Esselstyn.

Rip Esselstyn is the son of Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, who published the most effective medical treatment of heart disease ever published in any medical journal anywhere. Some discount the study, because there was no control group. Dr. Esselstyn responds that the group serves as its own control, as the group had 48 cardiac events in the 8 years prior to adopting the Esselstyn diet, and 0 cardiac events in the 22 years after. A cardiac event includes anything caused by hardening of the arteries, including increase of angina pain, causing an increase in medication, heart attack, stroke, bypass surgery, stent, etc.

In the interests of full disclosure, one patient died after 8 years on the diet, of cardiac arrhythmia. This is not a heart attack. This patient had extensive heart muscle damage from prior heart attacks, and was told by his cardiologist, before starting the study, that he had less than a year to live.

But the video clip talk is entertaining and short.

Best regards, EngineerGuy
