He's known as "America's Healthy Heart Doc", and has treated thousands of heart attacks in his over 30 year career as a cardiologist.
Dr. Joel Kahn has triple board certification in internal medicine, cardiovascular medicine, and interventional cardiology.
He's also a clinical professor of medicine at Wayne State University School of Medicine. On top of that, he has authored five books, including Your Whole Heart Solution and The Plant-Based Solution, as well as complex articles on health. He appears regularly on Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Larry King Live, and the Joe Rogan Experience.
In a nutshell, all of the above means that Dr. Joel Kahn is an extremely accomplished man. He knows what he's talking about when he says that heart disease is preventable and reversible with a healthy lifestyle. And the foundation of this, according to him, is a plant-based diet.
