Dr. Ellsworth Wareham was born in 1915 and is currently 101 years old. He retired from cardiothoracic surgery at the age of 95 in order to spend more time with his loved ones. Dr. Wareham says that owes his longevity to a vegan diet. He explains that even though he grew up on a farm as a child, he never wished to eat animal products. When he was in his 50s, Dr. Wareham became a vegan and supplemented his diet with vitamin B12.

In this inspiring Veggie Channel video from 2013, Dr. Wareham describes his healthy lifestyle.
