This is one of my favorite videos of the year so far. If you’re not familiar with Dr. Esselstyn’s work, I touch on it in:

• Cavities & Coronaries: Our Choice (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/cavi…)
• One in a Thousand: Ending the Heart Disease Epidemic (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/one-…)

If you haven’t heard of Pritikin, I introduce him here: Engineering a Cure (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/engi…)
An intro to Dr. Ornish: Convergence of Evidence (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/conv…)
Dr. Burkitt: Dr. Burkitt’s F-Word Diet (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/dr-b…)

Since this video came out in 2014, I published that series on Dr. Kempner’s work:
• Kempner Rice Diet: Whipping Us Into Shape (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/kemp…)
• Drugs and the Demise of the Rice Diet (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/drug…)
• Can Diabetic Retinopathy Be Reversed? (https://nutritionfacts.org/video/can-…)
