In the last year, coverage of vegan eating and its many benefits has abounded in the mainstream media — from Oprah to Ellen to Dr. Oz and more. Most recently, former President Clinton talked with Dr. Sanjay Gupta on CNN about reversing heart disease with a plant-based diet.
CNN recently aired a one-hour special, hosted by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, exploring the causes of and various treatments for America’s number one killer: heart disease. As he talks with medical experts as well as patients suffering from heart disease, and after spending a year investigating the issue, Dr. Gupta concludes that “with what we know right now, we could see the last heart attack in America.”
He’s referring to a “food-based prescription” that could save lives, and he sums it up by suggesting we should eat “nothing with a mother, nothing with a face.”
If you’re like most Americans, chances are you grew up drinking lots of milk. In fact, you were probably taught that you need milk for strong bones and teeth. What you might not have learned is that the health benefits of cow’s milk are often overrated — and, what’s worse, dairy consumption has been shown to actually be harmful to our bodies.

Looking back at his days in the White House, former President Bill Clinton is remembered for many things—his love of hamburgers and doughnuts being one of them. Fast forward to 2011, and in a one-hour special airing this Sunday on CNN, Clinton talks with Dr. Sanjay Gupta about his dietary transformation to vegan eating, explaining: “I like the vegetables, the fruits, the beans, the stuff I eat now.”
