Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Our Food, Our Health

Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., MD writes an excellent article in response to Barbara Walter's television special aired in February, "A Matter of Life and Death", during which six celebrities (Barbara Walters, Robin Williams, Charlie Rose, former President Clinton, Regis Philbin, and David Letterman) shared their thoughts and emotions surrounding their open heart surgery. Sadly, but not surprisingly, David Letterman mentioned that he fully expected a second bypass operation in the future. However, Dr. Esselstyn very clearly explains the link between food and health, and therefore the one between heart disease and the typical Western diet laden with animal products. Dr. Esselstyn believes that "...coronary artery disease is a food borne illness and need never exist", and its prevention clearly rests on the transition to a plant-based diet.

The impressive amount of evidence indicating the many benefits of a well-balanced plant-based diet can no longer be ignored. Honoring and respecting our bodies in turn honors God, for we are all His/Her creation. By the same token, indulging in foods that affect our health negatively for the sake of taste and convenience shows little respect to God.
