Off all the candidates for the White House, Donald Trump appears the healthiest, a top cardiology expert says.
“Donald Trump has unbelievable energy, he’s always upbeat, he looks good, and he’s always on top of his game. In terms of health, he seems to have all the other candidates – both Republicans and Democrats – beat," Chauncey Crandall, M.D., tells Newsmax Health
Dr. Harold Bornstein, Trump's doctor of 25 years, recently issued a medical report on the Republican candidate, saying that if the 69-year-old is elected, “I can state unequivocally, he will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.”
Trump's doctor says his blood pressure is 110/65 (normal blood pressure for an adult is 120/80) and that all of his target numbers and lab results are “astonishingly excellent.” Dr. Bornstein also declared Trump's cardiovascular health excellent, and noted that the candidate had no cancer history.
Although Dr. Crandall has never treated Trump, he has observed the candidate closely, both on TV and through photographs. “A doctor makes 80 percent of his diagnosis by observing how a patient looks and how he interacts with other people, notes Dr. Crandall, author of the #1 Amazon bestseller “The Simple Heart Cure."
“Trump shows no outward signs of heart disease. He doesn’t have creased earlobes or arcus senillis (a gray ring around the cornea of the eye). His eyebrows look good; he doesn’t have the thinning that can indicate thyroid disease and his color is good. All these are indications of good health,” says Dr. Crandall.
Other points in Trump's favor: He doesn't smoke or drink, and has always been a fitness devotee. "Trump has said his current program includes walks and playing golf. Golf doesn’t necessarily require a lot of exertion, but it is exercise, and it also takes concentration and coordination,” Dr. Crandall notes.
Dr. Crandall also points to Trump’s family as further evidence of the candidate’s robust health. “If you look at Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and his other children, they all appear fit and healthy, and they all are at a reasonable weight, evidence both of good DNA as well as lifestyle habits,” Dr. Crandall notes.
In his report, Trump's doctor referred to the Republican's stamina as "extraordinary," a statement with which Dr. Crandall agrees, especially compared to the other presidential hopefuls, he says.
"You see Trump in campaigning in the Midwest, and then he's in New York, and then he pops up on television somewhere else," says Dr. Crandall, adding, "I keep waiting for him to slow down, but he never does."
