  1. See this new keep eating all the red meat and processed meats you want Study should have looked at this one.! That's why I say those garbage individuals that allow that stuff to go in to a medical journal and the piece of garbage that produced it should go to jail!

  2. Anything is better than the conventional diet. That doesn’t mean whole foods plant based is best. Unless you enjoy the mood and energy swings of the blood glucose roller coaster.

  3. I'm always hungry on a plant based vegan diet. I don't like eating all day…
    Now I'm a vegetarian. Creamy Butter is delicious. Dr berg said saturated fat doesn't cause heart disease… that's a high insulin problem. High carb is not good with saturated fat… my doctor said I need more saturated fat in my diet.

  4. My cholesterol reduced from >200 before on a conventional diet within a few months to 133 on a low fat whole food plant based diet. My father got rid of his high blood pressure, it really works

  5. Thank you for this great message & a reminder that sticking to the Plant Base diet will help me achieve my goals is at a steady pace. 74 yrs old, 4 months in, I feel NOT old & decrepit. I have more energy than I did in my 30's. Losing weight (30lbs), walking 3 to 5 KM daily, no arthritis pain meds after 2 weeks, clear thinking, energy galore & the list goes on… Not a diabetic but cholesterol is high..tsk tsk but am patient & it will go down.

  6. But “keto keeps your blood sugar low” is such a simple concept. Watch the USDA endorse keto for diabetes in the 2020 Dietary Guidelines

  7. Well I'm the type 2 diabetic this research applies to and I will forever shout from the rooftops the benefits of WFPB. I have tried everything, and the only thing that worked for me was to stop dieting, stop being afraid of the good carbs and stick to a WFPB lifestyle. The fact that my blood work has come back normal two times instead of the usual abnormal is all the proof I need that this lifestyle can and does save lives. 😊

  8. Recommending a plant-based diet which 98% to 99% of Americans cannot do. If Greger really cared about diabetics, he would be pushing his plant-based diet PLUS healthy animal protein (not deep fried chicken and spare ribs). But he won't because first and foremost, he is an ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVIST.

  9. A crucial factor is potassium, as it is necessary for the liver to handle sugar, and 98% of Americans don't get their daily requirement- not anywhere near it. And there are great tasting plant foods high in it, say cocoa, pistachios….

  10. But it's not any plant-based diet. Dr Greger should have mentioned that the studies used LOW-FAT plant-based diets. (It's in the study titles.) If you eat high-fat vegan foods, you're going to stay fat and sick.

  11. the new intro is lovely 🙂
    if dr. greger talked a bit slower or more clearly, the videos would be even more educational – e.g. for non-native speakers.

  12. This an unfair comparison. I bet none of those studies look at animals grown as organic in their natural designed for diet. Of non grains grown on natural pastures under no stress. Have a study of only people who live by only eating wild hunted food far from civilizations toxic farms. When that is done then compare. Hunter.gathers gathers pre 12,000 yrs ago and those did eat plenty of organic grains, tubilers, fruits and vegies

  13. Diabetes is a way larger risk factor for heart disease then cholesterol. High insulin (type 2 diabetes)= 6,7x risk factor and high cholesterol: 1,4x. So high bloodsugar/ high insulin should be the root cause and not cholesterol. Cholesterol is just sticking to the damaged bloodvessel to protect it.

  14. can you make a response video to the BS doctor and he isn't a real doctor MD


  15. I really like these videos, but why do Dr. Greger always speak like he tries to talk out himself of an awkward situation in front of a police officer?

  16. I am a medical assistant and one of the doctors that I work for said that being vegan or plant based while pregnancy is very dangerous. He also said that children who are raised vegan or are only consuming plants based foods, have a slower IQ, the brain doesn’t develop like it should, the child grow up having severe deficiency and those kids tends to be a little bit unintelligent. He said that meat consumption helped us humans to develop intelligence and without it we would be here today.

    He said that there were and are lots of studies on that topic proving the same results over and over again. He said that for him, not giving a child meat and dairy is a crime and parents who do that should be taken custody.

    About the studies, I told him that it depends on how exactly the kids were raised. It depends on how the parents feed the children and what exactly.

    So, does anyone here have some experiences to share? Or give me some tips?

  17. From London, in the uk, doctors are not trained in nutrition or diet. They are taught to prescribe drugs. A raw vegan diet is a powerful medicine for the human body.
