The "heart attack proof" diet? Interesting read...

While scrolling CNN's website, I came across this article that claims the heart attack proof diet.  It claims that regardless of your genetics and family history, if you follow a plant based diet and consume no meat, no eggs, no dairy and no added oil- you will be free from the chance of a heart attack.  It turns out that even greasy food loving Bill Clinton follows this diet!

One thing the article points out that I really loved was a quote by the diet's founder, Dr Caldwell Esselstyn, about heart disease.

 "It's a foodborne illness, and we're never going to end the epidemic with stents, with bypasses, with the drugs, because none of it is treating causation of the illness."

How many times have you considered something other than the stomach flu a foodborne illness?  The power to control a lot of modern diseases is at the dinner table.

Not always easy, but definitely worth it in the long run.
