Joel Kahn - cardiologist preventing heart attacks and chronic disease through plant-based nutrition

Live Long and Master Aging - Episode 32

Dr. Joel Kahn has treated thousands of acute heart attacks during a career spanning more three decades.  A graduate of the University of Michigan Medical School, Dr. Kahn has served as Clinical Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) at Wayne State University School of Medicine since 1993. Once a traditional doctor using traditional techniques, he now applies a holistic approach to health care, believing that many chronic diseases could be prevented through changes in lifestyle, with a plant-based diet at the core of his approach to wellbeing.  In this in-depth interview Dr. Kahn explains his theory that the best recipe for good health is a lifestyle “extreme in diet, moderate in exercise and abundant in love.” And with heart disease standing as the world’s leading cause of death, he also plunges into the debates surrounding high fat diets and confusing health messages in the media.
