Cardiovascular disease (CAD) includes heart disease and stroke. In an age where CAD treatment means surgery and medication, a whole food vegan diet offers a unique and proven solution. It has been shown to literally unclog arteries, making it as valuable as a billion dollar drug but entirely unprofitable for commercial industries. Below are the highlights from Dr. Esselsytn’s landmark clinical trial.
Study: A Way To Reverse Cardiovascular Disease?
Dr. Esselstyn put 198 patients with advanced cardiovascular disease on a whole food vegan diet. When 21 patients dropped out and stopped the diet, it created a control group to compare to. Below is the rate of adverse events including heart attack and stroke over the next 12 years for each group.
