This 100-Year Old Vegan Heart Surgeon Shares His Secret To Long Life

Want to live to be 100, without the plague of chronic diseases and decrepitude? Eat vegan.

That’s the message of Dr. Ellsworth Wareham, a 100-year-old vegan heart surgeon who credits a plant-based lifestyle for his health and longevity.

He credits his plant-based diet for his health and wellbeing. “If your blood cholesterol is under 150 your chances of having a heart attack is pretty small.”

“If your blood cholesterol is under 150 your chances of having a heart attack is pretty small.”  “So you’re heart attack proof?” Gupta asks.

“I’m dealing with an area in which I understand,” he responds.

100 and thriving, he continues to refrain from consuming animal products, quoting a study out of the Cleveland Clinic that found heart disease could be stopped by adopting a low-fat, vegan diet. “If your cholesterol is under 150, your chances of getting a heart attack are very low.” Wareham stated, “My cholesterol is 117. I wouldn’t even bother getting an electrocardiogram (EKG) if I had chest pain. One-third of people in the U.S. will die of coronary heart disease. If you can prevent it, it’s worthwhile.”
