Plants also have a direct influence on our well-being in their capacity to absorb carbon dioxide and convert it to clean oxygen; which is a pretty handy trick in our heavily polluted, over populated world. Dr.

  • Food has always been medicine…love this site! I never pay attention to mainstream medicine I know better…thanks for putting this wonderfully valuable information to those who really care about their health..keep up the great work!!!

  • Cancer cannot live in an alkaline environment (Otto Warburg 1931 Nobel Prize foe Medicine). I cured myself with a tablespoon of baking soda every day in 4 months.

  • I will love to inform every one about a great herbal medicine man called (Dr ogugu) and his herbal product is capable of curing diseases such as herpes,cancer,HIV aids,Alzheimer,s disease,diabetes,influenza and pneumonia,kidney disease, hepatitis A&B and him can also bring back your ex lover if you need his help contact him via WhatsApp+2347011196745 or email [email protected] gmail.com

  • 12:57…i have heard that apple is bad for cancer!! now i am confused…and my oncologist forbade me from having any berries…i dont khow!!.help please…

  • 4:40 6:45 It isn’t any “allergic response” but a type IV (delayed type) hypersensitivity reaction. It isn’t an IgE-mediated reaction but a cell-mediated (T-cell mediated) reaction.

  • Perhaps it has to do with evolution. We use to be out in nature not cooped up in buildings. There was a connection between plants and human survival that we no longer have. They are living things that don’t talk much but make one feel less lonely.

  • What about life-like fake plants? I kill plants, but enjoy greenery. Do the psychological benefits extend to fake plants. Also cut flowers?

  • My Aloe plant dropped a big juicy leaf yesterday and it made for a great face mask, that skin hydration definitely made me feel better!

  • I am 1000% for holistic care and proper nutrition but this video ignores and simplifies the issue of nutrition to one thing that I am not sure is really proven let me finish because there are SO many other variables. Many of them I have listed below.

    People who go vegan necessarily have more money because the ‘typical American diet’ is cheaper. People with more money have better access to healthier food and better healthcare. People with more money typically have less stress, more sleep, ACTUAL TIME to exercise, time to unwind/destress, and time to do research on their diet – unlike people who are working paycheck to paycheck and have to choose between starving their family or feeding their family (albeit unhealthily). Processed and premade and fast food are all also less time consuming for people who are disabled and can’t cook for themselves without way too much effort OR people who work multiple jobs and don’t have time to cook/don’t want to eat cold food all the time/maybe want to spend their extra time with their family and not in the store and kitchen.

    If all you had to do to be healthy was to go vegan, then people would do it. It’s more complicated than that.
    What are people’s incomes vs net income vs after expenses?
    What about water intake? What about drinking calories vs eating?
    How many refined foods/grains are these people having? That can affect your body and energy too.
    Did the quality of their diet change? Portion size? Frequency of eating? Time of day that they were eating?
    Did they change their sleeping habits? The frequency of exercise? The intensity of exercise? General movement?
    What about stress levels? Hope (which 100% can change outcomes)? Meditation? Mental health?
    What about their quality of sleep? Hours of sleep? Exposure to blue light?
    What about family history? Were they healthy before and got sick and so they’re reverting?
    What about body type? Some people have a harder time losing weight due to genetics, but having higher weight doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re unhealthy because of lean mass and bone density and the way that your body processes nutrients.
    What about disability? What about eating disorders, anemia and nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, intolerances, sensitivities? Mobility issues including but not limited to chronic pain, chronic fatigue, chronic illness? Dexterity related issues?
    What about alcohol intake? Smoking? Vaping? Abusing RX drugs? Using illicit drugs?
    What about religious dietary restrictions? What about fasting?
    Did they study people of varying ages? What about cultural and ethnic diversity? My cousin who is very much Scots-Irish/UK descendent went vegan in high school and got ridiculously sick: hair falling out, pale, anemic, and weaned back onto eating meat and got better. My friend who is Eastern European descent was raised vegan and is perfectly fine. Different bodies need different things.
    And for some people, like myself, a vegan diet is not feasible or healthy. Whatsoever. Even if everything else before this was perfectly in order, it would not be healthy for me to be vegan.
    Where do you get iron? If being vegan is so healthy, why do so many vegans have anemia?
    What about sufficient sources of protein in smaller serving sizes? I am personally allergic to legumes (nuts and beans) and soy, and I’m sensitive to milk so I can only get sufficient protein through eating chicken. (I’m also allergic to red meat and seafood).

    I have not checked the individual studies yet, so fair enough, and I’m aware that he has a larger website that may be better at addressing these issues, but alone? This video does a very, very poor job at addressing nutrition because it oversimplifies. As someone who cares soo much about nutrition, especially after finding out how many freaking food allergies I have, I was disappointed at his lack of specificity and nuance in his explanations of his sources, his lack of consideration for outliers, and his overreliance on the historical general and medical opinions on smoking that he didn’t sufficiently prove to be relevantly analogous to eating animal products.

    I also found his sarcasm very offputting, especially for a persuasive speaker. I guess it’s a stylistic choice but I find that sarcasm, an ‘isn’t this obvious’ attitude and mockery are really bad for persuading people (even if he is exactly right). And personally? I don’t see people change when they are made fun of. I see them dig in their heels. But if he approached this topic with more earnestness or sensitivity, and also didn’t oversimplify, then I think he could’ve been very convincing.

  • Damn I felt bad for plant b even after it failed he continued to insult it, you should’ve started trying to bring it back to life if it’s a life and if it can hear you probably put that plant through major depression it also represents what happens to humans on the inside we start to slowly rot and become a shell of ourselves when someone continuously tells us in our childhood stages what we can or can’t be

  • I was having a similar problems but today is a joyful day of my life, Because I was having a heart CANCER since 2 years now. I spent so much on drugs from different specialist and general hospital and all was in vain. No result.

    When i come across an article on health forum i saw a post about Dr Tugala how he cure CANCER with Herbal Natural Remedies, I decided to seek his attention, i sent him a message on EMAIL and he responded to me. i explain my heart problem and he told me not to worry that everything will be fine.

    He sent me his Herbal Natural Remedies via DHL delivery company. and he gave me an instruction how to use them. in 2 weeks of his medication i feel so relief and i am back to my feet again, my doctor is surprised and everyone is surprised asking questions how it happen. To be honest with you God is never too late to send our helper to us. Dr Tugala is a God sent to help me back to my feet again. I think this articles can also help someone. you can contact Dr Tugala on his direct whatsapp or email below.

  • Thank you for scientifically confirming that plants don’t feel pain. Now I can cut down the half dead Alberta spruce trees in my yard without feeling guilty. I left them there half dead for years feeling guilty that I would cause them pain if I cut them down.

  • With such small sample sizes and such absurd methodologies, can we actually say that we’ve studied the subject or would it be more accurate to say we’ve toyed around with the idea?

  • it’s pretty obvious millions years of evolution amongst plants. it’s as inbuilt as caution towards huge animals with sharp teeth.
    on the other hand though when you tend to your plants and they die anyway or your cat knocks them off has a potential of worsening your mental health.

  • As I watch this, there are multiple bouquets of flowers across the table from me from a wedding we went to over the weekend. They definitely brighten my day.

  • I’m a lil confused.
    Based on Angiogenesis food mentioned on Bar Diagram, could anyone clarify, Vitamin E is most Anti-angiogenisis food or Soy extract?

    Less is good or more is good, for cancer treatment?

  • TRUE LIFE TESTIMONY OF HOW MY DAD WAS CURED FROM CANCER.>   I am Brown  My Dad has been suffering from (CANCER) disease for the past 2 years. He had constant pain, During the first year, we all had faith in God that i would be healed someday. This disease started circulating all over his body, after going through ( 5 ) chemotherapy and Radiatherapy for 1year and  he has  been taking Cytotoxic, monoclonal Antibodies, (MABs) treatment from his doctor he was tired of life,  he wanted to commit suicide, few months ago i decided to go on search in the internet if i could get any information concerning the cure for Cancer, on my search i saw a testimony of mrs Sharon from USA who has been cured from (CANCER) by this great  Dr. Alabi and she drop the email address of the DR. Alabi advised we should contact him for any sickness that he would be of help, so i wrote to Dr. Alabi telling him about my (CANCER) so he sent me the herbal medicine through DHL courier service. well, after all the procedures and remedies given to me by this great DR. 3 weeks later he started experiencing changes all over his body. I am here now to testify that my father is no longer a cancer patient, he has experienced a total transformation in his life. And there has been rapid improvement in his health, he no longer feels pains and he wakes up each morning feeling revived. So friends my advice is if you have such sickness or any other Sickness, you can Email Dr ALABI on his email: [email protected]mail.com   or Whatsapp him on +2348155011610.

  • I am not an expert, but maybe you don’t need a brain to feel pain? Maybe a plant has a brain but we don’t think it is because it does not work the same way.

  • Contemporary fruit is basically candy, and most vegetables contain high levels of oxalates. I agree that diet is key, but I think his recommendations are wrong. Meat is the most nutrient dense food, and what you don’t eat is likely more critical than what you do eat, or at least equally important. Just my opinion.

  • I wonder if it might just be psychosomatic? Like, maybe we’re brought up to view plants (or the idea of being in nature) as beneficial to our health, resulting in the presence of plants actually helping us? I wonder if the same effects would be observed with study participants from different cultural backgrounds (I have no idea how much the perception of plants differs between cultures, though).

I am looking to raise funds through go fund me to help send him to the Gerson Institute and help with his other medical expenses. All I am asking is that you share. Thank you �� gf.me/u/yim9d6

  • Vitamin b17,GCmaf,essiac tea,budwig protocol,intravenous vitamin c.paul stamets(bio chemist and fungi specialist)treated his mothers cancer with Turkey tail mushroom successfully.

  • 1) The original humans were adapted to an environment with many plants, not these artificial caves we build everywhere. In fact, spending the majority of our time in buildings is a relatively new thing for humans.
    2) Astronauts on the ISS when given the task of taking care of plants voluntarily spent (if memory serves) more than twice as much time with the plants than their duties required.

  • I mean it is nature, we live in a world with it all over the place so I’m sure we have some kind of attraction to it. Life growing is a relaxing thing to think about.

  • Fascinating stuff. I’m undergoing chemo/radio treatment for Stage 3 colon cancer. I’m definitely going to apply these eating principles in tandem with my conventional treatment.

  • If it’s only visual or if there is a visual component to this, then compare these studies to studies of how the look of one’s environment affects one’s mood -such as having only solid colors, which colors, having patterns (such as in wallpaper) and what kind of patterns, overly busy patterns everywhere you look, etc. and of course the obvious -fake house plants.
    Another thing to consider, in spaces with low ventilation, the effects of photosynthesis, and air purification (and humidification?) done by the plants.

  • They’re plants. Not to be all natury and stuff, but we were literally MADE TO live among them. We’re bound to have some link with them.

  • Quoting “Discovery consists of seeing what everyone has seen, and thinking what no One has thought”

    And just after that, saying it maybe a Fantastic idea to “Attacking angiogenisis” Because of the Association with Cancer.

    Well those sentences bothers me big time.

    And I am sorry to say, a good attempt, but this sounds like the same old thinking of how we are thinking about diseases, or should I say symptoms?

    The body needs regulation and not inhibition of a so called out of control enzymatic growth pathway.

    Just give the body what it needs and it will probably, in most cases, heal itself. Long use inhibitors of enzymes, even with natural substances, will at the end create a inbalance of inbalance.

    So instead of dying with cancer, you now die of a stroke, by inhibition angiogenisis with substances, because of not addressing the inbalances that causes chronic inflammation in the vascular system.

    Or you have to make clear that some of the natural substances are great in a regulatory sence by balancing out growth versus non growth inside the human body.

  • this man is chaos…. and quite hard to listen to…. Everything he says goes a human appropriate diet, christ veggies as you know them didn’t exist in the form they do until the last 100-50 years depending… soy is not tested its new…. and he is suggesting whole plant foods meaning nothing processed, though without enrichment and supplementation you will get sick

  • I think I knew this on an instinctual level. I was having a really bad day with my depression and I’m like “I want a plant. Im gonna go get myself a plant” and now I have a bunch of succulents and I love watching my little babies grow!

  • i know all this is actually true, but this feels kind of a comic/parody/sarcastic version, no? But so true anyway, even water has consciousness

  • Great presentation by a great presentator? You know what I mean, right? I have also checked out your web site doc and will be looking at it more in the future. Seems like plant based no smoking life style is the way to go to recover from bad choices. Thanks doc. Kev

  • Hello “Thank God for the wonderful healing power that Dr Ahmed Ali brings to my life with his powerful medicine, I have been diagnosed with cancer for over 6 years now which has led me to be unemployed and to lose my relationship with my fiance after hearing this I was suffering from the disease, until a friend of mine told me about Dr Ahmed Ali the great healer and his healing comments on YouTube that he will help restore and cure my sick with her powerful healing spell, she send me Dr Ahmed Ali email address, and I quickly contacted him, He replied to my mail after 30 minutes, He told me that the disease was small and minor, that he will only solve the disease immediately if I can accept whatever he asked of me, I told him yes, because really I knew that “cancer is bad”. I did whatever he wanted with me and after two days he sent me his powerful medicine, after using it eg for a week the problems were resolved, he told me to do a checkup, which I did, then confirm with my doctor that I was now “ NEGATIVE ” It was a beast won, this disease has driven a lot of things from my life, my friends, my fiancé and my job, I will talk about this man until it happens to all people. You can contact him on his Gmail: [email protected] gmail.com or WhatsApp number + 2348034811617..He can also cure HIV / AIDS, herpes, fibroids and many more, let’s stop cancer

  • It really would help if he didn’t keep saying ‘andrewgenesis’, when it is ANGIOgenesis. This sloppy way of speaking can cause misunderstandings and thus mistakes.

  • Natural medicine vs Conventional (Rockfeller) health care medicine.. Dr. Farah,, medical scientist shared insights regarding her cancer treatment experiences wherein cancer is caused by 90% environmental, among them are processed foods and rated highly by her due to chemicals and preservatives contents. Dr. Farah works and testimoniala are posted in her YouTube channel.

  • For me, plants help by giving me something else to think about. They Give my mind something other than intrusive thoughts to think about.

  • They are alive. They are pretty. It’s interesting to see how they grow and change. They give us more oxygen. It seems more natural.

  • The Japanese has the wonderful word “Shinrin-yoku”, or “forest bathing”. Isn’t there a study of how many trees is required to add a therapeutic effect on people? We build parks everywhere we can and people enjoy them. I have one specific plant in my house that I care some extra for, everyone I know got at least one plant in their home so something must be going on.

  • That may be true. But learn a real lesson from history. The Hindu’s are the earliest vegetarian society ever found. they balanced their diets perfectly…. by 1526, their society had been completely conquered by the Mughal empire. The Hindu emperor fled, hiding in the mountains. If the British hadn’t intervened….. Hindu culture would be extinct. So you want to go vegan? What kind of soldiers will you raise?
    MODERATION IN ALL THINGS.

  • I would do anything for anybody, any Herbalist that could reverse my physical weakness/paralysis from my stroke at only 18 years old… With electric food & dieting. Anybody who knows can like & reply here!

  • “The speaker makes strong assertions about a specific diet that lack sufficient scientific evidence for general prescription.”
    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!? Dr. Greg has reviwed hundreds of studies supporting plant based diets and yet, you say it “lacks sufficient scientific evidence for general prescription”? Where is the evidence about the safeness of the standart omnivorous diet? Tell me one single study or case study! I’m down to the fact that ignorance will always prevail… But simply do not misinform people! GREAT JOD Dr. GREGER!:D

  • Listen well vegans just because you don’t hear it scream when you chew it doesn’t mean it’s not or was alive.
    Plants may not be able to feel “pain” but like the man said they also show signs that they don’t want to be killed, think about it if you can drown a plant that means it was breathing. if it’s not breathing you just killed it

  • Could it be that we are an animal that use to live in nature and now desires nature? I mean I have heard people say I don’t like cats, dogs and kids but I have never heard someone say they hate gardening. That’s not to say they don’t exist. Just that it isn’t common. I instead hear “I have a black thumb” or “I kill anything green” almost lamenting the lack of current ability to keep a plant.

  • Talks in the most annoying way possible. He constantly speeds up and down, several times in one sentence. How can anyone understand what he’s trying to say?

  • We were aloud to have plants in the call center I worked at for a couple years. I really enjoyed having my jade plant around and seeing the plants other people had on their desks. There was quite an uproar when the building maintenance said we needed to get rid of our plants and I really felt a negative mood shift after they were gone.

  • My life totally and completely changed when I changed from a typical American diet to a Pesco Vegetarian diet. I am now changing to a 100% Vegan diet. On my Pesco Vegetarian diet, I ELIMINATED 3 medications…THREE. My weight and BMI is fantastic. I have chronic pain w/ortho and neuro causes, but, they are much better since I switched in 2013

  • Where did ted got the idea that Researcher, scientist and doctor Michael Greger has no scientific foundation? He has a big researchers scientist organization working for us! It really upset me how ted belittle from the beginning Dr Michael Greger.

  • Great presentation as usual, very eye opening! I liked the comparison with the tobacco industry and smoking, the same is happening now with the “food” industries and nutrition! Thanks to doctors like you, Dr. Joel Fuhrman, Dr. Neal Barnard, Dr. Brooke Goldner, and many others, people are starting to wake up to the truth! As a future physician myself, I appreciate your work!

  • Fulvic Acid comes from the Earth’s soil containing 70+ minerals and vitamins. It also contains the world’s most powerful electrolyte. Along with prebiotics, enzymes, antioxidants, and amino acids. It is SO powerful, bringing 45% more oxygen at the cellular level! It has helped me, tremendously with alkalizing my body, my hypothyroid, inflammation, weight loss, balancing my hormones, greater energy, and DETOXING by eliminating all of the toxins and heavy metals in the body. Feel free to look around on my website! I would love to help on your health journey!

  • Thanks,  Very interesting thoughts.  I am also advocating diet food for cancer patients.   My experiments with cancer treatment are here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWPmNQ1x4r0.  Happy to share my experience to help a needy patient.

  • Plants (that I’m not allergic to) at work or elsewhere are nice, but houseplants at home are overwhelming and depressing because they inevitably die, no matter what I do to them.

  • Too many people simply don’t want to change, get angry when it’s suggested and even go so far as to blame you & others for their poor health. I know someone who the night before a major operation was smoking *despite being told not to smoke at least two weeks before the op) whilst telling me they feared they would die on the operating table. They ended up in the ICU fighting for their life. Weeks later they were back to smoking and blaming the hospital for “nearly killing” them. The worst lie is the one people tell themselves. Only they can help themselves.

  • House plants have insects in the soil at times…. and breeding grounds for bugs. Bugs make me annoyed/stressed/uncomfortable. Checkmate, scientists.

    Also, taking care of plants is just tedious.

  • Edward Bernays a relative Of Freud.His work in advertising
    Esp Selling cigarettes to women. Check up on wiki
    Much of his work was used by intelligence agencies.and Faux news

  • Did I read this right “NOTE FROM TED… The speaker makes strong assertions about a specific diet that lack sufficient scientific evidence for general prescription. ” Under what rock are the promoters living?

  • It’s been like 40 years since they figured this out. But we still can’t change the idea about plants in general society. Humans are hopeless. New scientists are too scared to say the truth because it might damage their career and get laughed at. How can humanity progress?

  • The past few months I have been really depressed and upset for honestly no reason and a few weeks ago I bought a a BUNCH of plants and have been taking care of them and my mental health has improved sooo much and Ik this sounds odd but I’m honestly obsessed with plants now and now I’m building a green house

  • “We can’t wait until society catches up to the science again, because it’s a matter of life and death.” This, and all of your speech and the reference to the Cigarettes promotion campaign, applies so well to Climate Change.
    It’s a matter of life and death. Listen to the science. Corporations are paying millions to manufacture skepticism and denial.
    Listen, listen, listen.

  • My mum keeps herself cheery by regularly watering and/or otherwise just checking on her plants located along the corridor from the lift lobby to our house..

  • It’s not about data it’s about what the plant represents. We have so much stress from work studying plans we’re making and the digital world. But guess what this plant is here trying to live, this is its world it’s trying to survive. That’s what’s beautiful it doesn’t care about your plans because it’s to busy in his own world to care. All it wants is water sunny light and lots of love and that’s great and beautiful! It’s a call back to a simpler time I guess you can say.

  • The Nasa made a list of the plants that actively improve oxygen and decresse polutants in the air…… so is just more than “a feeling” ��

  • neone noticed palo funded ending lol money even in ted talk,, surprised ted talk allowed dis video,, go vegan before 2030Climate or we all die united nations

  • They be trying to make fun of vegans and make them seem foolish or looking bad etc. Now they came up with the popular keto and carnivore. I even fell in the bandwagon. I gained weight and inflammation. I then realized it’s all about money. Watch cowspiracy documentary it makes even more sense today in 2019/2020! The animal products people are losing money! They’ll do anything to stop vegan movement.

  • Thank you for sharing your research on a public platform. Question: would anti-angiogenesis foods also help to reduce or control neurofibromas in NF1 patients?

  • NOTE FROM TED: Please do not look to this talk for medical advice. The speaker makes strong assertions about a specific diet that lack sufficient scientific evidence for general prescription.

    What a joke ��. Have TED curators ever heard of PubMed? Or maybe about the thousands, if not millions, of anecdotal evidence on people reversing their chronic diseases (including my dad) and living healthy, medication-free, because of a plant-based diet? Probably not.

  • I know a product who can help you to recover from your cancer even your under going chemotherapy or other therapy you can still take it!

I wish to help those people want to extend there life for there love ones.. If your interested pls pm me! I’ll pray for all of you guys that you recover! Stay safe and God Bless!

  • Experiment 1 was a total fake experiment as at the last he changed the plant B more over I thought that plant A and plant B were the same.

  • NOTE FROM TED: This has been compelled on TED Talks by loads of legal actions by pharmaceutical companies and other nefarious capitalist organisations who make money at the expense of people’s lives

  • Plants only “React” they don’t have “Response”. Plants have chemical reactions.
    For example, a human is a living sentient being which can react, think and respond.
    What about our liver and stomach? It is also living right?
    But suppose you have stomach ulcer or liver cirosis, that doesn’t mean your organs are feeling pain! The pain receptors go through your brain and send various responses like sweating, fever, etc.

  • I bet plants make people feel more relaxed in general because we associate them with being outside in nature, where you can run and hide from the stress and scary things of everyday life. Plus, if you’re in a (threatening) artificial environment (like an office, school or hospital) and you see lots of plants around you, you might feel like: if they are able to survive there, than so can you.

  • Is it possible that evolutionary biology has caused us to be attracted to plant life as a sign of the habitability of the immediate environment?
