  1. I just love listening to you. You make everything sound so simple, and use examples that we can all understand! Wish you had an office in Fl. Where are you?

  2. what about if cholesterol is too low? i'm plant based and recently a blood test revealed that i've got low levels. is it harmful or should i not worry?

  3. Doc you should get some sleep. We're going to need you alive because not many people are willing to take your place. Thanks for the vids as always.

  4. I mean can't vegans still get heart disease, heart attacks and strokes? It happens to even raw vegans. just the other day I saw a video about a raw vegan suffering a stroke.(I do eat a vegan diet BTW)

  5. My brother in law had a stroke yesterday, he may get better in 72 hours but he is currently in intensive care and he can't speak, swallow and is paralyzed completely on his left side. I wish the med industry would wake the f**k up, he just finished 3 years of chemo for glandular cancer, last chemo treatment was 3 weeks ago and last diag was that the cancer had not gotten any bigger. Not much success there and now this.
    I've been vegan for almost 3 years and tried gently to try and get him to change his eating habits with no luck. Don't wait for this to happen to you or your family please.

  6. Usually really like your videos but not this one. Message here was to eat plant based however you can still eat crappy vegan food and still have bloodflow problems.

  7. Sadly most people are not intelligent enough and in control of themselves (will power) to do what is right and logical. We see this over and over again in all categories.

    Humans need to be taught logic while they are growing up. Parents need to start educating and protecting their children, then things will really change.

  8. but problem, as dean ornish noted: non-vegans cannot adhere to a strict plant-based diet unless the food is actually delivered to them. to non-vegans your videos are fairly condescending. it's like, "here's the research… why can't you change? what's wrong with you? this diet is so much better, etc etc." and your annoying wobbly jerky movements in these videos enforces your "wtf is wrong with you non-vegans" attitude. you're going about this the wrong way. if you want people to change, lighten up on shoving research into people's faces as doing so will only be met with resistance. for example, even with a chemistry degree i told many friends and family to stop cooking with aluminum. even with research paper at hand everyone resisted with a "who the fuck are you to tell me what to do" attitude. the reason why people will never change is because your tactics (condescending videos) don't work.

  9. A few years ago, I weighed 370 pounds and suddenly started experiencing moderately severe angina at rest. I finally realized that I was going to die, and likely soon, if I didn't change. A friend linked me to Dr. Greger's video "Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death". I watched it, and was convinced by his evidence-based approach. I switched immediately to a plant-based diet. I lost over 30 pounds in a month, 100 pounds in 6 months, and 160 pounds in a year. I attained a healthy weight for the first time since grade school. I went on to lose over 190 pounds and have taken up running, cycling and triathlon. I've run a half marathon and biked 70 miles, and hope to extend these achievements in the coming years. Not bad for someone who until recently would be winded after a flight of stairs.

    It is very likely that Dr. Greger's review of the evidence and advice saved my life. It has certainly added tremendously to them and I feel like I am really, truly living for the first time, no longer a slave to a weak, sick and tired body but full of energy and vibrant good health. I hope some day to be able to thank Dr. Greger personally. I feel the frustration of this message being overpowered by socioeconomic factors and regulatory conflicts of interest. I have felt the frustration of sharing my story with people who are fat, sick, weak and tired the way that I was and seeing it fall on deaf ears. It shouldn't be this way. I know, however, that there are many stories like mine. I hope that one day, after enough of them, momentum will turn and this way of living will become mainstream. So many people die from completely avoidable maladies.

  10. i eat meat, love it but, In a day Ill eat around 5 to six cups of fresh vegetables Delicious and I eat organic eggs and sometimes organic chicken and or wild caught salmon. also I supplement just in case. i have great blood pressure and exercise 5x a week. dont need to be vegan just eat more veggies and nothing fried or synthetic. love these vids to learning a lot.

  11. yo truffles have so much dietary fiber im rly curious if 315 calories of truffle a day meat diet can reverse health downsides of the meat are there any studies on this?

  12. Dr. Greger you have changed the way I eat. I used to be only concerned with staying skinny. But your videos have changed the way I look at food. Thanks a lot. I am a ethical vegetarian trying to go vegan for my health. I also supplement with b12 and D3. I've switched to almond milk and I'm getting lots of greens and fresh herbs in my diet. My mood has changed and since I started eating more fruit I no longer crave massive amounts of sugar. Instead I eat berries.

  13. Absolutely love this channel, I've recently found it and started watching every single video from the beginning and taking notes.
    I've installed the Daily Dozen app, but I'm confused a little bit:

    – Isn't it hard to generalize the daily portions for everybody ? We are at different ages, some are training hard etc.
    – For each food group there is a section called "Serving Sizes". Do we have variants of one serving there or they all combined make one serving ?

  14. I was hoping that Dr. would go into details about saturated fat at cholesterol, homocysteine levels, ratio between essential fats, etc.

  15. could you do a video on papaya, their seeds, and their effects for male contraception please? I eat a whole papaya almost everyday (about 50 seeds) and i haven't gotten anyone pregnant yet even though i always bust my nut inside.. do you think this is risky? I'm almost positive it works but i never hear anyone talking about it…

  16. Though the content of these videos are amazing, I wish Dr Greger's behavior wasn't so theatrical. People I send these videos to keep asking why he is acting so strange. Makes it harder to normalize veganism from an advocacy standpoint. He acts like a super exaggerated sales man.

    If that's how he naturally acts, then I sort of feel like a jerk for saying this though.

  17. As someone with is still young and suffered for years with high cholesterol, this video hits so close to home. I am SO glad my doctor told me: "I need you to address your diet, I want you to go home and research." If he hadn't i would've never found Dr. Gregor and other plant-based diets, and I would've never made the change for myself. In 1 month my cholesterol dropped 35 points, after I had spent two years of daily exercise with worsening results. I hope by my next annual exam I will "heart-attack proof"!

  18. Can you please do a video on Turkey Tail Mushrooms? There is a lot of evidence showing that it is extremely powerful to boost the immune system to fight off cancer (and any other types of diseases). It appears to have been FDA approved for cancer patients.

  19. With 11 or 12 I had high blood pressure and my doc wanted to give me pills.

    My dad had bought only real shit to eat. 🙁

    I became vegan with 14. Now I am 24 & my blood pressure is at his best. Long live whole foods! 🙂

  20. It's so much easier to get someone off of heroin and/or crack than it is to get them to break free from their parasitic induced food addictions.
    I'm so sick of fighting with loved ones about their eating habits and its relation to their poor health.

  21. Very misleading. Plant based diet is bad for your health AND for the environment. Im from India where majority are vegetarians. It sounds good but it has the opposite result if you only knew.
    Its interesting that people still believe that cholestrol or saturated fat is bad for them and relate them to heart disease despite clear evidence that the problem is sugar or high carbs. Sugar is very inflamatory and inflammation is root cause of all diseases. Ironically study shows 75% of people who died from heart attack were in low to mid range of cholestrol..
    Automatically you are having more sugar by eating a plant based diet unless you eat only green raw vegies which is also bad. Another surprise is that high blood pressure is actually good and low blood pressure is bad. High blood pressure means more oxygen reaching your organs especially your brain and more. Anyway….Please do your research before putting your bodies into destruction by eating a plant only diet.

  22. I share this on Facebook at least once a month hoping one of the 600,000 that will dies this year from heart disease will make some positive changes.

  23. I just found out that I have high cholesterol. I am a 55 year old vegan women. I am 5'3" and 124 lbs. I exercise regularly and do not believe in processed food. I have been vegan for 8 months. I also suffer from arthritis. My doctor is of no help. Anyone have any advice? Am I just a unlucky minority?

  24. I don't know I have changed my diet completely and been completely vegan for over 6 months my arms my legs my body still hurts horribly I've supplemented properly and still no improvement on anything, super frustrating!!!!—-#Fatty

  25. So… any vegan, whole-foods, plant-based diet (excluding coconut meat, palm fruit, and white potatoes), but supplemented with vitamin B12 (and vitamin D + algal EPA/DHA, just to be on the safe side), making sure to include seaweed (but not kelp/kombu), but completely avoiding salt (but miso might be okay, but not [even vegan] kimchi because cancer) has the potential to reverse heart disease?

  26. Your knowledge provides hope and insight! Thanks for the illumination! Much gratitude to your work! ✨✨✨✨✨

  27. With all do respect, not all vegans are healthy¡ some eat lots of sugar , bread , 0asta and this will make the situation worse¡

  29. Heart attack, heart disease coronary artery disease, You can tell by the naming that the medicine treats the symptoms and not the cause.. Well there is nothing wrong with the heart not even the artery. Arteriosclerosis is a slightly better word but it s all greek to most. Just name it "fatty blood disease" or even better eating disorder: Liporexia!!! People with this condition need a psychologist for support quitting bad habits more than they need a cardiologist.

  30. I checked. The AHA says that it's not possible to heal damage to the heart. But now there's new research on a compound that, when injected, helps the heart to heal itself.

  31. I've heard you mention a book for reversing heart disease in some videos and I want to buy this book for a friend of mine's mother, could you please tell me if it's the How Not to Die book or another one? Anyone who know what I'm talking about please chime in as well, thanks.

  32. Your body healing itself is not magic, it's God's power working in us, as all modern medicine comes from minerals that God first created, so the best choice is to honor him for his healing power in our lives because we would never make it past 12 years old otherwise or even much much sooner. God is my healer, who is yours?

  33. God blesses so many with health; it's ironic that (for some of us) the mechanism for it just happened to be poverty!🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😉 #CarpeDiem #GodBless #LeafyGreens

  34. Comes across as so fake, why drag this out with lame rhetoric. Seems so self indulgent and makes it hard to take information around death and heart disease seriously…
