Clinton, from heart problems to adherence to veganism

In March of this year, Clinton joined former Presidents Barack Obama and George Bush in a campaign to promote coronavirus vaccination. “I want to be able to go back to work and be able to circulate again,” he said in the announcement that he intended to invite Americans to be immunized against the pandemic that has so far caused more than 700,000 deaths in the country.

Clinton was the 42nd president of the United States between 1993 and 2001. Elected at age 46, he became the third youngest president in the country’s history. In 2004, at the age of 58, he underwent a quadruple coronary bypass to free four blocked arteries. After that mishap, Clinton, known to have a weakness for fatty foods, went vegan.

In 2010, he underwent heart surgery again at Columbia University Hospital after suffering chest discomfort. According to Alan Schwartz, his surgeon, two endoprostheses were placed, a small tubular structure also known as a stent that is inserted into the artery to prevent it from clogging. That same year, he said it hadn’t been difficult to become vegan “when you have a quadruple coronary bypass and you want to live to be a grandfather.”
