A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Heart Disease – 14 March 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

With all the taxpayer anger and frustration over the financial situation, bailouts, etc. being reported by the media, I wonder how long it’s going to take before the public wakes up to the fact that they are being duped by the majority of those whom they trust with their health?

How many are listening and acting on the solid, proven advice of the few, honest physicians such as Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr., M.D., the cardiologist and author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease?

Al Perry has this to say about Dr. Esselstyn: “Caldwell Esselstyn is more than a friend; he saved my life.” Al Perry was one of those who are caught up in the “health care” of patients with heart disease. He had one stent inserted and was scheduled to have two more when he decided to contact Dr. Esselstyn instead. To make a long story short, “Dr. Esselstyn explained the anatomy of cardiovascular disease, why it develops and how to reverse it through a pure vegan diet that eliminates all animal products and all added oils.”

That was five years ago. Today he is in excellent health. As Al Perry says about the state of allopathic cardiology today, “It’s a booming business that costs billions of dollars for surgical treatments and drugs.”
~ From “Conversations” by Lynn Grudnik, in the Winter 2009 “Health Science” membership journal of the National Health Association.

See! Being vegan not only makes you much healthier, it lets your bank account grow!
