Was George W. Bush's stent necessary?

Was George W. Bush's stent necessary?

Here is Dr. Joel Fuhrman's take on George W. Bush's recent invasive cardiac procedure.  From all that I have read about cardiac stents, it appears as if he would have been better off to been advised to make aggressive changes in his lifestyle, especially an excellent whole foods plant-based diet.  Possible, medical therapy was also indicated.  I hope that the press's coverage of the implantation of a stent in President Bush, will not increase the popularity of this procedure, which is often unnecessary, and possibly dangerous.  Dr. Fuhrman's opinion is that the procedure was most likely ill-advised.
