Food as Medicine

Last Monday night, CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta aired a one-hour special on heart disease, the focus being on preventing and reversing heart disease with food instead of medicine or surgery. Feature prominently was Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn who has tutored former president Clinton into a vegan lifestyle and back to health after heart surgery, then stents, failed to "fix" his heart problem. Dr. Gupta spent a year on his own study and has become a believer. If you missed the one-hour special, called "The Last Heart Attack," and want to see it all, it's available at Dr. Gupta's blog here.

This is a brief summary interview on CNN where Dr. Gupta summarizes the message of the hour-long special: heart disease can be prevented, and reversed, using food as medicine.

This additional short interview contains more of Dr. Gupta's findings from the hour-long special. Good stuff:
