Proof that Plant-Based Nutrition Heals Cardiovascular Illness
200 people with significant cardiovascular illness were scientifically studied over 3.75 years. They were counseled to engage in a whole-food, plant-based nutritional lifestyle. Of the 89.3% that were adherent with the eating plan, 99.4% avoided further cardiac events during the next 3.75 years.
The 11% remaining subjects were non-adherent. 62% of these suffered further adverse cardiac events.
This study by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn will be published in a few days in the May, 2014, Journal of Family Practice.
Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn is a surgeon and author of the bestselling book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. This is the book that first inspired me to start my nutritional study, so I highly recommend it. He has produced more than 150 scientific publications, and conducted a series of groundbreaking studies that have rocked the nutritional world.
