Meet Dr. Ellsworth Wareham: A Vegan Role Model at 101

Morning Cup

Ellsworth Wareham (born October 3, 1914) is a centenarian from Loma Linda, California… Wareham retired as a cardiothoracic surgeon at the age of 74 but continued to associate himself with training residents at the Loma Linda University until the age of 95 during which time he drove 60 miles to assist in operations.

Dr. Ellsworth Wareham is one of my role models from the Vegan Movement. He’s a retired heart surgeon who’s been a Vegan for most of his adult life. And at this writing he’s 101 years old.

Dr. Wareham is from Loma Linda, CA. One of the blue zones where people are known for their extended long life. Other blue zones include the island of Sardinia in the Mediterranean Sea and the island of Okinawa.

What the people eat in these blue zones has been studied extensively because of the inhabitants long lives. Also, their lifestyle and other habits.

Veganism is the practice of eliminating meat, dairy and eggs from the diet, and all other animal products like seafood and honey. Some vegans also eliminate leather goods, clothing and furniture as an ethical decision to practice compassion toward other sentient beings.
