98 Year Old Vegan Doctor

This video is an interview with Dr. Ellsworth Wareham. Dr. Wareham is retired cardiothoracic surgeon. He retired when he was 95 years old. He is currently 98 years old. He is also a vegan.  He has been a vegan since his 50's.

He believes his healthful lifestyle contributes to his longevity, and he points to Loma Linda's Adventist Health Studies as evidence.

Dr. Ellsworth managed his weight by eating fruits, vegetables, nuts, and then there's his philosophy of life.


  1. Thanks for this. Extremely inspirational. I’m trying to switch first to a vegetarian diet and then, eventually, to a vegan one so it’s interesting to hear from someone who has done it for decades and looks incredible – particularly for his age. Thanks again 🙂

  2. 1 The protein rinshecs of certain plant foods is irrelevant don’t tell me that a leaf is the most protein rich source of food on the earth, when you bloody well know I don’t have the digestive capabilities to make any use of that. It’s like a Martian telling an ancient Greek King that he can have all the land he wants, it’s just up on the moon.2 It goes without saying that there are more differences in lifestyle between the 60/40 split he made than simply what they eat or not. People get sick on vegan and vegetarian diets too because of compounding factors, and they’re not the only ones who get sick because of reasons other than their diet. Next he’ll be saying that if you’re gay you’re unhealthy because gays are the minority group with greatest HIV/AIDs rates in America, and if you’re straight you’re healthy by default .we’ll overlook your lifestyle and personal habits, you just happen to fit into a category that appeals to a certain world view.3 Colin Campbell (why do Americans pronouce Colin as colon ??) is the world’s leading nutrionist. Uhhhh really? Because I’m pretty sure I read that the China Study was released without undergoing peer review. And I’ve seen it’s methodology and findings called into questions several times, and no, not just by Denise Minger.4 Food companies lobby to get it advertised that we should eat more meat (or words to that effect) In that case why do the majority of doctors and government resources that are available discourage eating lots of meat? Why aren’t they advocating the Primal/Paleo diets, which often call for more meat than the typical SAD has? Why, if you go on google and type (country) meat consumption you’ll find article after article after article in which governments and scientific bodies are saying people are eating too much meat??? There’s apparently a conspiracy going on where meat producers are supposedly bribing governments and other institutions to get us to eat more meat (somehow) and yet those same institutions are telling us to eat less meat all the time. Someone’s pulled the wool over those meat producers’ eyes.

  3. Magnolia Bakery!!! I am so jealous!! You will have so much fun.The first time I went to NYC I went with my mom and other felmae relatives we took the double decker tour bus if you don’t mind looking like a complete tourist you learn some pretty cool things and get a good view of all of NYC.
