Engine 2 Diet

Brief Summary of Below (Cardiac Disease)

  • More recently, a small, but significant clinical trial by Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn Jr., of the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, showed that a plant-based diet in conjunction with cholesterol-reducing medication eliminated progression of coronary artery disease over a 12-year period in patients with triple-vessel disease. Most of the 18 patients had experienced an earlier failed intervention of bypass surgery or angioplasty. All patients who maintained the diet achieved the cholesterol goal of less than 150 mg/dL and had no recurrent coronary events during the 12 years. At five years, angiography was repeated in most cases. By analysis of the stenosis percentage, none had any progression of the disease and 70 percent had selective regression. This data is compelling when one considers that the same group had experienced more than 49 coronary events during the eight years before this study.
