Vegan since his 50s, Dr. Ellsworth Wareham is a famous cardiothoracic surgeon who retired at the age of 95. He believes his healthful lifestyle contributes to his longevity, and he points to Loma Linda’s Adventist Health Studies as evidence.
Dr. Ellsworth managed his weight by eating fruits, vegetables, nuts, and then there’s his philosophy of life.
“I’m 98 years of age and I practiced cardiothoracic surgery until I was 95. I first tried to be active, working around my yard, doing my pruning and my bushes on my own land so I tried to keep a little exercised doing that. As far as my dietary program is concerned I happened to be a vegan, I’ve been a vegan for half of my life. I think that’s the healthier form of nutrition, I try to maintain calm approach to the problems of life, not worry and threat over problems that come along. I get a good night sleep and if I feel Like I take a nap during the day, so I really try to be as careful as I can, preserving the energy I have.
I quit work when I was 95 because of this I have attracted some publicity from the National Geographics. Incidentally the people I worked with, very much wanted me to continue but I felt I should have spent a little more time at home with my family. I could be working right now, I could do anything that I did then even if I’m 98 now. But I picked 95 as an arbitrary time when I would quit. I’ve always been inclined to be a vegetarian, my folks were farmers and we had quite a bit of meat available but it never appealed to me to eat animal products

THE FIONA OAKES DOCUMENTARY `RUNNING FOR GOOD’ From Executive Producer James Cromwell and award-winning director Keegan Kuhn (Cowspiracy, What The Health) comes RUNNING FOR GOOD, the feature-length sports documentary narrated by Rich Roll (Finding Ultra), following world record marathon runner Fiona Fiona Louise Oakes in her attempt not only to set a new global record in endurance racing, but to compete in the “toughest footrace on earth,” the Marathon Des Sables, a 250km race through the Sahara Desert. Fiona Oakes has made a name for herself as a unique endurance runner. She is the fastest woman in the world to run a marathon on all seven continents, and the north pole, in both cumulative and elapsed time. Fiona’s achievements are made even more astounding due to the fact that she was told at age 14 that she would never walk properly, let alone ever run. She would undergo more than 17 radical knee surgeries which ultimately led to having her entire right kneecap removed. The process was agonizing, the rehab worse, the records she’s gone on to set even more astounding. The fastest female to run a marathon on each continent. 4x Guinness World Record. Vegan 40+ years! This woman is an awe inspiring remarkable athlete!The documentary It’s free now thru Oct. 14. Here: https://runningforgoodfilm.com/ Link for Download and purchase.
