This talk explains why my husband and I became vegans.
It is given by a former Cleveland Clinic Surgeon, Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn. My husband's current cardiologist at the University of Illinois confirms that the research is rather solid that a vegan diet is unusually effective in cardiac treatment, but feels that most people can't handle the lifestyle change.
The food, however, is much better than I expected. But on my birthday this month (I'm 45) I had salmon sashimi. Yum!!
