These populations have one thing in common: they adhere to a whole-food, plant-based diet. 

The U.S. has fallen far behind, but there is hope for a heart-healthy future.

Based on the groundbreaking results of his 20-year nutritional study -- the longest study of its kind ever conducted -- Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr. explains in his book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, how we can end the heart disease epidemic in this country forever by changing what we eat.

Dr. Esselstyn convincingly argues that a plant-based, oil-free diet can not only prevent and stop the progression of heart disease, but also reverse its effects.

Listen in as Dr. Esselstyn joins Dr. Friedman to explain what endothelial cells are, why they're important for good heart health, and other dietary factors that contribute to heart disease (and factors that reduce heart disease risk).
