Show Notes

Scott makes some high-level observations about health, longevity and integrity following his interview with Dr. Thomas Colin Campbell.


Live until you die.

  • If you’re in your 40s or 50s, it’s never too early to think about the quality of your life moving forward.
  • Surviving isn’t the same thing as thriving. Add life to years, not years to life.
  • Dr. Campbell is finishing another book at age 84. Many people at that age are retired and suffering health problems.
  • Scott’s dad lived until he was 87 but had a litany of health issues that began around his 50s. He ate a typical American diet, where the plate was several shades of beige and few bright colors (i.e., fruits and vegetables.)
  • Dr. Campbell said during the interview that he takes no meds or supplements. He demonstrates the benefits of a whole food plant-based lifestyle.
  • If carbs are so bad for us, why is Dr. Campbell so healthy?
  • Ellsworth Wareham, cardiothoracic surgeon, worked into his 90s and lived until he was 104. He attributed his longevity to a plant-based diet.
  • Long-term health benefits should accompany weight loss [meaning weight loss should be accomplished in a healthy way.]
  • Dr. Campbell followed where the research led him, an example of integrity.

“Get busy living, or get busy dying.”

– Andy Dufresne, The Shawshank Redemption
