Bush Obama Clinton

George Bush recently had a health scare when he was hospitalized for several days for heart related issues.

The former president needed to have a blocked artery opened, which came as a surprise to some, considering he is known for his slim physique and active lifestyle.

Despite the fact Bush can complete a 62-mile bike ride, he may be missing another key factor when it comes to heart health.

Looks like it’s time to take some direction from another former president, Bill Clinton, and start following a vegan diet.

“I was lucky I did not die of a heart attack [in 2004]. When I had my second heart incident [in 2010] and I had the stents put in, I had passed all my physicals, I was doing great, but I was still building up plaque in my arteries. So I decided that I wanted to see if I could live to be a grandfather, so I just went all the way. Now, I try to eat some salmon once a week, but I don’t miss any of that. Getting rid of the dairy was great, getting rid of the meat was–I just don’t miss it.”

Bill Clinton, who although may miss the posh lifestyle of his White House years, doesn’t miss his old diet.
