Dr. Ellsworth Wareham, 102 Year Old Vegan [Video]

I’ve mentioned this before, but retired heart surgeon Dr. Ellsworth Wareham is my hero and role model.

He’s been a vegetarian for much of his life, and didn’t become 100% vegan until his early 50s. And, he didn’t retire until age 95.

He’s from Loma Linda, California, one of the official blue zones where the general populace in these areas live a very long life.

Anyway, I’m on my second day of a detox regimen. I don’t have any plans on how long this will last, so I’m leaving it open. It could be 3-5 days. It could be more. We’ll see…

I believe in detoxing a couple of times a year. The body is like a sponge that absorbs toxins and pollution from our environment, and could be one of the causes of cancer, so it’s good to cleanse the system by eating lots of fruits and vegetables and eliminate animal products for awhile. I’m vegan so I don’t have to worry about the animal products, but I’m taking a break from the grains, legumes and seeds, and try to drink a lot more juices and water to help in the cleansing.
