The excitement continues on the PlantStrong advocacy front! As we posted a few days ago, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewed former President Bill Clinton about his new plant-based diet to lose weight and reverse heart disease. In that interview, he credited the following doctors for influencing his decision:
- Rip’s father, Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., author of Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease;
- Dean Ornish, M.D., physician consultant to President Clinton since 1993 and author of Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease; and
- T. Colin Campbell, PhD, author of The China Study.
CNN received so many requests for more information, that they decided to invite Dr. Esselstyn and Dr. Ornish on to interview with Wolf on The Situation Room Friday evening. Here’s the video if you missed it:
