Jeff, thanks for the link. I've posted it on my blog so that as many people as possible can see The Last Heart Attack.
I think it's a great piece, but Dr. Agatston tried to suggest that coronary calcium scanning should be the "standard of care." I disagree with this, and I posted about it on my blog, veganheartdoc.com.
I think Dr. Klaper is great, and last night I was talking to someone whose mother went to True North and the experience changed her life.
However, is Dr. Klaper really a "Plant Only" doctor? Does this mean he doesn't prescribe medicines? I don't think that is the case, nor should we be providing anyone with the expectation that prescribing medicine is across-the-board the wrong thing to do.
I am a cardiologist who is plant-based. I am a minimalist when it comes to medications, but there are definitely instances when medications, even with a plant-based diet, can be life-saving. For example, if a patient has a cardiomyopathy (a weak heart) due to a virus. Regardless of his or her diet, ace-inhibitor and beta-blocking medications are life-saving to help improve the pumping function of the heart.
I think it's great to promote diet to treat heart disease, and I agree that a healthy diet is better than a medicine cabinet full of pills. But I think we need to be careful in how we relay this message.
p.s. I think the music is cheezy and distracting from his message.
