Kevin Smith, a renowned filmmaker and actor, suffered a heart-attack at the weekend, leading him to consider moving to a plant-based diet.
In an Instagram post, the star announced he experienced a ‘Widow Maker’ – the term used to describe the left anterior descending artery becoming fully blocked. The heart attack is known for its high fatality rate.
In the post, Smith described the severity of his episode: “Turns out I had a massive heart attack. The Doctor who saved my life at the #glendale hospital told me I had 100% blockage of my LAD artery (also known as “the Widow-Maker” because when it goes, you’re a goner).”
The actor finished the post by saying:“This is all a part of my mythology now and I’m sure I’ll be facing some lifestyle changes (maybe it’s time to go Vegan).”
