Chelsea Clinton: Heart Surgery 'Radically Changed' My Dad's Health Habits

Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton made an appearance with Marlo Thomas yesterday on her Huffington Post web series “Mondays with Marlo,” where she addressed the health of her father, former President Bill Clinton. The older Clinton “radically” changed his diet after years of poor eating habits led to less than optimal heart conditions.

“He went to the doctor recently, and the doctor told him his heart today is much younger than it was even 10 years ago,” Clinton said. “So that thrilled me, because selfishly I want my dad around for a really long time.”

The Arkansas Democrat famously became a vegan following a quadruple bypass surgery several years ago, but his daughter expressed optimism over his health moving forward.

“I’m very grateful that my father decided to get healthy; that he didn’t need my mom [former Secretary of State and potential 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton] or me to pressure him to do that,” she said.

“He’s probably the world’s most famous vegan,” Clinton added. 

“He walks four times a week, diligently, wherever he is in the world. And he’s so determined to be an advocate for other men, and men in particular, to go to the doctor as he did when he started to not feel well, and then to make the necessary changes in their lives so hopefully they can live a long time.”
