Another Cardiologist Goes Vegan

John C. Teeters, MD Chief of Cardiology Highland Hospital, NY

Dr. Teeters explains that he was born and raised in North Carolina where he learned to smoke his own meat, now he smokes veggies! His epiphany occurred when he heard a presentation at a cardiology conference about heart disease and veganism. Dr Teeters reflected that “one of the sad things is that doctors don’t get a lot of training in nutrition.”

The head of the conference, Kim Williams, MD, the president-elect of the American College of Cardiology is also a vegan! Dr. Williams often sees patients who are overweight and struggling with hypertension, Type 2 diabetes and high cholesterol. One of the things Dr. Williams advises them to do is to change their diets. Specifically, he tells them to go vegan.
