Great news - incoming President of the American College of Cardiology, Kim A. Williams MD, eats and promotes a vegan diet! In a recent guest blog post on MedPage Today, Williams explains why he now recommends veganism to his patients.

"It was a patient's success reversing an alarming condition that motivated me to investigate a vegan diet," said Williams. "I thought I had a healthy diet...but a simple web search informed me [otherwise]. So I changed that day [and] within 6 weeks my LDL cholesterol level was down to 90."
