What Made President Clinton Go Vegan?

Subject: What Made President Clinton Go Vegan?
Date: July 24th 2013


Most everyone knows that former
President Bill Clinton is now a dedicated plant-based eater. He's lost a couple
dozen pounds, is back down to his high
school weight, and has reversed the
heart disease that dogged him
for many years.

Clinton has said he's healthier now than he has been in over 30 years.

So what made him decided to
take the plunge and go plant-

It's an interesting story.

Dean Ornish MD began consulting
with then-President Clinton as far back as 1993. Ornish certainly encouraged
Clinton to try his plant-based heart
disease diet plan -- but Clinton was a junk food addict in those days, not
especially ready for Ornish's message.

In 2004, Clinton was diagnosed
with multiple vessel coronary
artery disease, and underwent
successful on-pump quadruple
coronary artery bypass surgery.

in 2005 Clinton underwent
heart surgery again, to resolve
some complaints that were the
result of his first surgery.

Then in 2010, Clinton had two
coronary stents implanted in
his heart due to blockages.

But a little later in 2010, the
stents failed and Clinton was
getting sicker and sicker with
his heart disease.

His daughter, Chelsea, urged him
to take control and recover his
health through a plant-based diet.

And he did, and he was particularly
impressed by the work of Caldwell
Esselstyn MD, whose diet has been
proven to reverse heart disease.

Clinton knew about Esselstyn because
two years earlier, in 2008, the 4-time governor of North Carolina, Jim Hunt,
had asked a friend of his to autograph
a book his friend had written, to send to Clinton.

That book was THE CHINA STUDY, and
Gov. Hunt's friend was T. Colin Campbell PhD, the book's author.

Clinton was enormously impressed
by the China Study, and had learned
of Dr. Esselstyn and the 100%
success rate Dr. Esselstyn has had
in curing heart disease through diet.

So when Chelsea begged her father
to stop playing around and get
himself well, Clinton armed himself
with the instruction manual to
HEART DISEASE by Dr. Esselstyn.

The rest is history...and so is
Bill Clinton's heart disease.

Want to get all the details -- and
more that Bill Clinton used to save
his life?

Read on to learn how you can hang
out with these legends at the
VegSource Healthy Lifestyle Expo 2013!

Sign up for the Expo:

October 18-20, at the Warner Center
Marriott Hotel in Woodland Hills, CA
(Los Angeles area)

Come meet icons in the plant-powered
lifestyle world T. Colin Campbell, Phd, and Caldwell Esselstyn, MD, in addition to an impressive array of other presenters. Receive unique materials to take home
and integrate into your healthy lifestyle.

This year we are taking the Expo to a
new level and giving away two unique
written programs to take with you to
benefit your health and the health of
your loved ones.



Meals For Health is an innovative 30-day community intervention program which
has been hugely successful in helping
people recover their health.

As an Expo attendee you will receive
the complete Meals For Health program
guide. This guide includes recipes lists, shopping lists, cooking info and special advice that participants receive in the Meals For Health program.

Expo attendees can take up a 30 day
Meals for Health challenge, beginning
the weekend of the conference.
Continuing on-line support will be available for the month following the Expo -- what a great way to kick-start the holiday season!

With this material, you will be able to put yourself on the same 30-day program that was recently used in a church
community in Oakland, California.

In the Oakland church, about 50
participant families suffering from
a variety of chronic diseases got
off 80% of their medications within
30 days, lost dozens of pounds,
normalized biomarkers and transformed
their health.

The Meals For Health program produces
results that are nothing short of miraculous.

During the Expo, Don Forrester MD,
the medical director of Meals For
Health, will discuss how the program
works and why anyone at any age,
condition or income level can get t
he same results.

You will also have an opportunity
to meet some of the participants
from Meals For Health Oakland,
and hear what has happened in
their health and with their family,
as a result of going 100% plant-based
with Meals For Health.


You will also get a preview of a
new documentary before it is
released publicly. The documentary
highlights families from the Sacramento Food Bank and the Progressive
Missionary Baptist Church in Oakland,
and features stories about how the
Meals For Health diet has lead to cures, remissions, weight loss and profound
changes in quality of life.



Dr. Esselstyn runs the most successful heart disease reversal program in
history. He is author of the bestseller Prevent & Reverse Heart Disease.
This book has helped over a million
readers, including celebrities like Bill Clinton, who credits Dr. Esselstyn for reversing his heart disease and saving his life.

During the Expo weekend, you will
hear a series of talks which constitute the FULL program that Dr. Esselstyn
and his wife, Ann, teach at the
Cleveland Clinic Wellness Center.
Normally you would have to travel
to Cleveland to get this full program, and to receive the invaluable written
materials which are part of the
program, and which comprise the
latest in products, foods, and recipes for protecting your health, losing
weight, and reversing disease.

As part of this year's Expo, you will
receive the FULL program from the
Esselstyns during the weekend.


T. Colin Campbell PhD is a legendary
figure in the plant-based world.
Back in 2005 when his landmark
work, The China Study, came out,
we were among the first to help
promote it. The book is responsible
for a big shift and can be directly
credited for many achievements and
the overall evolution of plant-based
health information.

Whole Foods Market CEO John Mackey
has said reading this book opened his
eyes, and that meeting with Dr. Campbell sparked his decision to start immersions and offer Whole Foods employees the
chance to learn how to use food to reverse and prevent diseases.

Films like Forks Over Knives arose
directly from Dr. Campbell and Dr. Esselstyn's work, and now Dr. Campbell has a new message.

At the Expo Dr. Campbell will be talking about where his 30-year exploration has led, and what are the most important
considerations are for all of us to protect and insure our health.

As the title of his new book, Whole,
suggests, the big picture is far more
important than individual foods or nutrients.

In fact, Dr. Campbell is going to show you how the healthiest diet is easier
than you think.


Health-promoting MD Michael Klaper
will provide common-sense analysis and
detailed advice on a number of
frequently misunderstood topics, such
as gallbladder flushes, colonic irrigation, probiotics, olive oil, chocolate, sugar, vitamins, coffee, low-carb diets and
much more.

We will be announcing the rest of the
schedule and speakers very soon but
some reserved seats are still available for the Expo, if you would like to sit closer to the front.
