219: Little Green Forks

219: Little Green Forks

Dr. John Tanner suffered a heart attack while on a morning run when he was promptly rescued by a passerby. During his stay in the hospital, doctors treated him with a stent and told him he was able to now "resume life the way it was" with no direction on how he could lower his risk of a second cardiac arrest. Fortunately, this tragic situation prompted John to dive into the research of the WFPB diet and as a result, John has not had any recurrences of Heart Disease or related conditions!

In this episode, John shares his story, along with some pretty staggering statistics on the link between heart disease and diet.

9 year old Vegan Evan has been making waves in the community for a few years now, but most recently his publicity has come from a collaboration with Million Dollar Vegan, where he asked President Trump to go vegan for the month of January in exchange for One Million Dollars to be donated to US Veterans.

In addition to Evan's campaign with MDV, Evan is the president of Animal Hero Kids, and has participated in multiple animal rescues with DxE, and has spoken in front of thousands of people.
