  • I go to lots of lectures to learn about my health, mainly my depression and bipolar. The WORST thing is when the lecture ends, and we have to Q&A. I was so glad when the main talk ended, and Q&A started:) very good!

  • Sadly we are still misled by the government and our recommended diets are still SAD!!! It is so difficult to get patients to understand how much they can do for themselves by just eating a plant based diet!

  • Diet Plan known as Custokebon Secrets kept appearing here on many youtube and I thought they were scams. However after my cousin follow it, and finally lost lots of weight by using it without starving herself. I’m persuaded. Don’t take my own word for it, search for Custokebon Secrets on google.

  • Hi morning. My name is Debra I was diagnosed on May 21st 2020 with a heart attack. The doctors took a CT Brain and saw I had a small stroke without I knowing so time pass. They want me to take warfarin pills but I find it has to much risk. Can I follow a food menu and get the same result. Can you sent me a diet plan thank you.

  • I did not like the long background to get the conclusion. Data can be explained quickly and focus on the solutions to avoid be lost in the details.

  • See like I’m all down to cut down on meat eating….but the alternatives taste horrible. I think I dislike more vegetables than like by a ratio of 4:1. There’s maybe 3 I can think of I actually think don’t taste disgusting.

  • I’m not overweight but I know I’m unhealthy. I’m very fussy when it comes to food, I love foods high in sugar and salt, I can only eat salads if they have a nice tasting dressing on top, I really need to change my ways now, I’m physically active so I just need to give up the sweets and crisps (potato chips, I’m British) and then I’m good to go.

  • This guy needs to debate dr. Jason Fung the Canadian kidney specialist
    who is all about high fat/low carb…lots of his videos on You tube
    2 doctors quoting studies that prove their case and arguing for the opposite diet
    So hard for the layman to sort out what to do

  • She says 400 times but the screen says 400% greater which is 4 times the rate. Then she does the same thing with the 200% greater.

  • I do eat primarily fruits and vegetables and nuts and I love sourdough bread with my havarti cheese and I’m not cutting that out. I also like to eat meat on occasion. I eat boiled eggs as well

  • Not so fast, Dr. Greger! Of course, a plant-based diet will help prevent coronavirus. “Underlying conditions” are the reason most die of COVID-19. Those underlying conditions? Let’s see, obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer -on and on. Treat (cure) the underlying conditions and we are stronger and our immune systems can fight off germs & viruses more aggressively.

  • I eat 3 eggs per day and I fast 23 hours a day. How am I suppose to eat only 3 eggs a week, too little. Eggs got bad rep but they are super food

  • I am always disappointed in these so called healthy heart videos. In order to eat healthy for your heart one needs to remember this: no oil (including margarine of any sort), no salt and no dairy! When cooking, instead of using oil use vegetable broth.

  • My problem is I am a meat and potatoes guy and it’s just so hard to get the same full feeling on this diet. I never had a problem with weight but my cholesterol is through the roof. I would eat 9 meals a day if I could

  • It’s so difficult to listen to a robotic reading of text versus just talking about it. Especially when its just from the left or from the right speaker. But thank you for the information.
    Seriously, by the end of the video i was upset with the sleepy music and monotone reading of text. PLEASE make your videos easier to listen to! You know the advice you need to give, just TALK IT OUT, instead of writing it down and droning it out, I implore you. You will reach many more people that way.

  • yes, i like his humor. although i have had to get used to his delivery. check out his website https://nutritionfacts.org/ and his youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/user/NutritionFactsOrg. i subscribe to everything he posts.

  • there are a lot of doctors out there advocating lots of stuff. some sound reasonable because they seem to want to monetize their advice. i am suspicious. i trust this guy. today i am going to buy “how not to die” and the cookbook by greger. i borrowed “how” from the library and realized that i want to own it.

  • So is the guy at the beginning of the video at the right corner of the screen, bottom right corner of the screen product placement? Lol

  • I’ve been vegan for 6 years. In that time: my asthma is completely under control, I haven’t had a lung infection ( I used to get them 3x a year, I haven’t had a UTI, my blood pressure is normal, and I just over all feel amazing. But I make sure to take my B12 and vegan DHA.

  • Hi there! This is a great video! My greatest strength in
    physical fitness has been walking!
    Walking has served me well since I was a young kid.
    If you get into the routine and ‘own’ the knowledge that
    walking = heatlh, you will benefit for the rest of your life.
    Running comes next for me; but getting my knees in shape
    for it was something else! Nutritional support is what is
    keeping my knees healthy to carry me!
    Love it!

    Walking or Running To Stay In Good Health!

  • These low-fat morons aggressively pushing unnatural low-fat diet caused an explosion of heavily processed junk and the epidemic of obesity. Now they realized their mistake and instead of looking at the data and correcting, they doubled down. Now it’s not enough to eat the low-fat Mediterranean. Now you need to be low-fat vegan. Nobody eats like this, it’d disgusting, unnatural and wrong.

  • Thank you for this excellent information. A library of a variety of resources relevant to improving heart health for seniors is available here: http://gracehomecare.com/category/heart-health/

  • The information about fats was a little over simplified I think. Nuts are good, because of their saturated fats. So, saturated fats are not all bad! Coconut oil can be very good for health.

  • He looks so unhealthy and malnourished. If he would simply listen to his body and eat animals, he would not need to read all of those bullshit studies. He would look healthy and I could take him seriously. This guy is a fool.

  • Just like E cigarettes that the NHS in endorses to give up smoking however I had an asthma attack when someone blew smoke on me and had to go to the hospital

  • Several of the studies he is referring to are not representative. The cigarette and chicken one is for instance far from. This just makes it all more complicated for us..

  • This is so true
    My sister left her tongue be re-injured for seven months without going back to the dentist and now has stage 2 tongue cancer and has had to have surgery had her lymph notes out and radiation therapy it will take her years to recover all because she didn’t go to the dentist to get it checked out properly. Also it’s rubbish food like cardboard rye Ryvita but she is overweight so that makes sense if you have more cells there is more likelihood you would get cancer. So it seems like our lifestyles of the problem and the fact that we ignore her health at the expense of not having to deal with it

  • I’m a Filipino who is taking my senior year at a local university. And I’m learning a lot from this video for free.

    Maraming salamat UCLA��

  • Why was I always sick and tired on a vegan diet?
    Tried it from age 16-28 and kept getting sicker and sicker. Started eating meat a few times a week and all my health problems went away and suddenly had more energy and brain processing power than I’ve had in years.

  • The last question is very important. Can someone elaborate more? My father has stage 4 kidnei CA, the nutritionist is giving him prowey me and I think is accelerating the grout of the CA. Thanks.

  • I been full vegetarian for 5 years. Lost so much fat & never gained it back. This informative video is really making me cross over to vegan! End of the month

  • I read loads of great reviews on the net about how exactly Custokebon Secrets (do a google search) will help you lost a ton of weight. Has anyone tested out this popular weight loss system?

  • Damn, 3 years ago I really believed in his work, I thought he was telling the true truths about nutrition. Then at some point I learnt how real research works. And now all I see here is a crap ton of BULLSHIT. It may sound all informative and helpful, but he’s mixing facts with nonsense in such a way that people without a scientific background can’t tell the difference. Shame that Google gave him a platform to spread this shit even further.

  • You need to compare the amount of potassium in a banana to the amount in other foods with the same number of calories, NOT the same volume. Some make it a bit higher on the list but have TWICE the calories so really they only have HALF the potassium of a banana by caloric content. There are still a few foods that beat bananas by that criterion but not many.

  • I think you are wrong.. your body makes 3000 milligrams of cholesterol a day.. if you eat more cholesterol it will make less.. if you eat less cholesterol it will make more…. at least two dozen eggs a week I haven’t got high cholesterol or high blood pressure… problem comes from not eating enough vegetables in your diet.. and not eating the right vegetables.. and not eating the right fats.. Plenty of Fish steamed.. or boiled…

  • Just eat fruits vegetables and berries some lean meats. Its not what to add its what to take out. You ladys were great and thank you for caring. If people have to look up how to eat healthy there is no hope.

  • It’s lengthy video..from comments I learn that.. vegetarian food is good for health and to live healthy for more time..so thanks for comments..you all saved my time..thank you all

  • I have PLC skin disease and harmon prblem and also PCOD problem please help me to make my diet plan ��I can’t even meet anyone to get suggestions because I’m from village please help me maam

  • 1.Vitamin B12 breakthrough for more complete Vegetarian and Vegan diets”
    A team, led by Professor Martin Warren at the University’s School of Biosciences, has proved that common garden cress can indeed take up cobalamin.

    The amount of B12 absorbed by garden cress is dependent on the amount present in the growth medium, and the Kent team was able to confirm B12 uptake by showing that the nutrient ends up in the leaf.”

    2. EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL is much healthier that canola oil.

  • greatttt… also found a great read for a good knowledge on healthy foods…


  • Some good stuff. But also some assumptions. Correlations do not prove causation. Confounders are abundant. So much of what he has said has been authenticated, but on the other coin, a lot has already been debunked. Always continue learning even when the facts don’t fit your previous assumptions, and you won’t waste half your life like I did.

  • My family don’t want me to tell my sister the truth in case she gets upset, so they’d rather she was dead from her preventable cancer than actually save her life because protecting feelings are more important than logic

  • I love this guy. I think Dr. Greger should run for US presidency, seriously, wouldn´t that be a story? First plantbased President?

  • You say dietary cholesterol has very little to do with blood cholesterol cos the liver makes most of it. Then you go right back and say we should cut out most fats from our diet. ����‍♂️ make up your mind. Animal fat is not the problem. Processed food is! And canola oil is very unhealthy. And you are aware that low fat products usually have high sugar right???

  • yoghurt that is vey low fat or fat free can be misleading, as they add more sugar to give the product flavor since they fat that provided flavor is now gone.

  • My wife and I are both overweight, I have high blood pressure, and she has the beginnings of CHF. A few years ago I would have scoffed at watching a video like this… but here I am… and I’m not laughing anymore. Thank you for your effort in educating boneheads like me.

  • it’sa great thing to look at every day How not to die! really motivating if you do these things it cuts your risk by 15 % Great Dr

  • Thank you for such an informative video. I have just had angioplasty 14 days back. Am really taking care of my diet now. Can i have a couple of alcoholic drink sometimes?

  • I had a full blown heart attack 3 weeks ago! No bull! It’s time to wake up. If not for quick intervention I would be long dead. A sobering thought.

  • This video is definitely fantastic! It helps me remember of times when my cousin used Custokebon Secrets to lose 15 pounds and enjoy being healthy again! Many people would like to lose fat, however we also require to remain healthy and balanced, which is what Custokebon Secrets gifted.

  • Canola oil?!! Holy Dinah, most canola oil is genetically modified. Get with the program.
    All margarine, because of the way it’s ‘manufactured’, is BAD.

  • Less muscle than a ten year old girl, low testosterone, weak frame, myopia, squeaky voice, baldness, brain fog. This surely looks like an authority figure on health and longevity. What are his recommendations based on? Epidemiology on garbage in garbage out models. Rodent studies. Misinterpreted, cherry picked trials with low participation numbers. And a big dosage of argumentum ad aerecundiam.

    I should get into the confidence trickster business. If that clown can pull it off, anybody can.

  • I notice many people keep on speaking about Custokebon Secrets. But Im not sure if it’s good. Have you ever tried this popular fat burn methods?

  • I see that you show the formed little carrots in a salad and understand from other healthy food choice discussions that these are mechanically formed and dipped in a chlorine type solution to keep off bacteria until eaten and that is why if not eaten right away turn white on the outside. Is this true and if so is this a good thing to show on the site?
