Al Gore Medscape

Al Gore interviewed with Editor-in-Chief of Medscape, Eric Topol, MD on a variety of topics that could affect the U.S. healthcare system in the future.

Diet is an obvious part of wellness, and Gore briefly touched on his decision to switch to a vegan diet a year ago.

Gore said:

“Over a year ago I changed my diet to a vegan diet, really just to experiment to see what it was like. And I felt better, so I continued with it. Now, for many people, that choice is connected to environmental ethics and health issues and all that stuff, but I just wanted to try it to see what it was like. In a visceral way, I felt better, so I’ve continued with it and I’m likely to continue it for the rest of my life.”

As a vegan and environmentalist, the problems with increasing antibiotic resistance in livestock is always a growing concern. Gore discusses this and more in the full interview, available on both video and in transcript, at Medscape.
