For fans of the 1990s burger-and-fries loving, Southern-Baptist sounding former President of the US, some recent changes in Bill Clinton may be a bit of a surprise.
To begin with, after a 2004 heart attack, he has moved steadily toward a vegetarian, almost vegan, diet (the Christianpost reports that he occasionaly eats fish). They report him saying:
“I essentially concluded that I had played Russian roulette,” Clinton told CNN‘s Sanjay Gupta regarding his previous poor health in an Aug. 2011 interview.
“I was lucky I did not die of a heart attack,” the 42nd president added.
And now, several reports suggest that he has turned to Buddhism, or at least Buddhist practices, to further improve his health.
