  • Overview

    Beta blockers, anticoagulants, stenting procedures and bypass surgeries: these are all crucial cornerstones of cardiology that have saved and improved the quality of lives for our patients, yet the underlying causes of coronary artery disease aren't addressed by interventions and medications. Can we prevent and maybe even reverse heart disease by prescribing a plant-based diet? Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, director of the cardiovascular prevention and reversal program at the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute and author of the book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, says heart disease is "an essentially benign, food-borne illness," that can be prevented by adhering to a diet based around plants. What evidence supports this idea? Join us for part 1 of our two-part interview with Dr. Esselstyn. Dr. Janet Wright hosts.
