A couple new articles by Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, are making their rounds in the vegan community.
And who can blame us for wanting to share them? These are exciting results indeed, once again showing reversal of cardiovascular disease with a low-fat plant-based diet, this time in a larger sample size than in previous studies.
- A way to reverse CAD? in the Journal of Family Practice, July 2014, Vol 63, No 7.
- The Nutritional Reversal of Cardiovascular Disease – Fact or Fiction? Three Case Reports in Experimental and Clinical Cardiology, Volume 20, Issue 7, 2014.
For those more inclined to spend time with a video lecture, the following talk by Dr. Esselstyn at the 2012 annual Health Conference sponsored by NW VEG and the Portland Adventist Hospital Association is well worth the hour plus. His presentations always snap me back into low-fat adherence!
Good news: The Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease Cookbook by Ann and Jane Esselstyn, the good doctor’s wife and daughter, is now available for pre-order!
Note: If you use one of the book links above, I get a small cut of the sale (at no extra cost to you). Even without this incentive, I’d recommend these potentially life-saving resources.
