101 year old Cardiothoracic surgeon discusses the reasons for his decision to go vegan 50 plus years ago.

Heart warming story :)

Just what the Doctor ordered.

This is a fun, great energy piece on the Happy Healthy Vegan channel.

Currently, an Australian man, Andrew is on a Potato ONLY diet for a YEAR!!! Lol (God, I love you tube).

They talk us through the interview on an American Doctors chat show: "Drs"

Apparently, potatoes do provide all the necessary nutrition. He is very happy so far, says he has had fewer bouts of anxiety and depression, being monitored, possibly by Dr. McDougall? and has lost a healthy amount of weight...

Happy Healthy Vegan Vs Drs (T.V. show)

This was referenced above when Happy Healthy Vegan appeared on their T.V. show. I love the thoughtless, non-scientific knee-jerk reaction Doctors have when discovering people eat more than one or two bananas a day.

Doctors are frightened of bananas. Lol

@Empty yikes! doctors are so easily scared... what about those people eating nothing but bananas? there used to be an extensive website from this guy surviving on nothing but bananas, but it seems to have disappeared. I wonder why! 30 bananas a day seems pretty out there too though...

then there's the guy who claims to survive on nothing but durian, that big stinky fruit

the macrobiotic movement in the seventies would survive for weeks (or months?) on nothing but brown rice because it had 'all the nutrients we need'.

I'm starting to see a recurrent theme here. But hey, whatever works, right? ;)

I thought that was one and the same person! (a person I know IRL)

I have never heard of anyone trying to live on bananas only?

There is a thing called "banana island" where you eat only bananas (or another fruit) for a short period of time as a cleanse and a chance to get digestion up to scratch.

But then mainly bananas just become a staple.

great article on durian:

http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/australia-food-blog/2014/oct/01/durian-the-worlds-most-divisive-fruit

I have never tried it. The description doesn't encourage me though, it sounds worse than that cheesy fruit, I forget the name of it.

Durian has been banned on the Singapore subway LOL

I thought this was a spoof photo at first, then, still not believing what I was seeing, thought he was wrapped up in a duvet...

Good interview though.
