    I had several bladder infections from sexual intercourse but NEVER any from chicken. By the way, I only started eating chicken AFTER I stopped having sex, aka long-term celibacy.

    He said, “Infuse them before RIGORMORTIS sets in!” If that don’t get you off dead animal carcass, nothing will. 🙄

    Dr Michael Greger interview from vegancoach :
    My breakfasts are typically green smoothies (parsley-mint-mango-strawberry-white tea-lemon-ginger-flax) during the warmer months, and an 8-or-so grain hot cereal with toasted walnuts, seeds, dried fruit (barberries my fave), and cinnamon.
    Lunch is leftovers from the day before, and
    supper is usually some intensively flavorful/colorful world cuisine type concoction with beans and greens (and lots of hot sauce). And a big salad of course!
    My fave snacks at the moment are baked purple sweet potato fries encrusted with fresh rosemary/garlic/chickpea flour, "zombie corn" (air-popped popcorn sprinkled with Bragg's and nutritional yeast, and turned bright green with chlorella), steamed collard green leaves wrapped "cigarillo" style around canned refried beans and jarred salsa (with some adobo-sauce sauteed onions & mushrooms if I have the time), and during the Fall my "caramel apple" combo of local Honey Crisp apples with some crazy-wet date variety like black sphinx.

    His presentation method has improved. His voice pitch modulation is much less pronounced. Most complaints about his presentations are regarding the extreme pitch modulation.
    My doctor talks about diet every single visit. She's thorough. When something shows wrong on the blood test, she says how to help fix it with diet: example: Good cholesterol: get omega-3, from things like fish, nuts etc.

    I have learned so much from listening to Dr.Greger. Many of his teachings I'm sure has saved my life or contributed to it. I only wish I was articulate enough or persuasive enough to save my family and friends from the heart disease they are most likely going to die from. I recently went Vegan, and my cholesterol has plummeted, and my energy level is crazy great at age 60. I look and feel very young. And I went Vegan after Forks over Knives and the lectures from Dr. Esselstyn and Campbell. But that is not enough. The lectures of Dr. Greger has taken me to the next level of knowledge in the health benefits of a Vegan diet. Bravo for sharing this video. I will keep watching.

      Roger Thompson Congratulations! Hope you've been successful! I'm a food addict and have given up all meats, all dairy, eggs, processed oils and sugars and am now working on processed flours (pasta and breads) and Coca-Cola (my weakness).. it's a lifelong process but worth the rewards!! :-)

    Dr. Geiger looks pale. Surely the palest human in the islands. Arms like spaghetti sticks. Hawaiian shirt falling off him. Tired looking. Pot bellied. Bald. Thick glasses. Surely he is a warning to anyone who wants to follow this delusional dangerous whacko diet.

    , I just finished reading how not to die by dr. Michael Gregor. I knew I would enjoy reading the book since he is by far one of my favorite VSA guest speakers. just ordered another copy to give to my 72 year old mother and another one for a coworker of mine who both suffer from heart disease related issues. doctor Gregor was definitely a huge inspiration for my going plant-based 4 years and 150 pounds ago.. definitely buy his book!

    Dr. Greger is THE man! Practicing exactly what he preaches. I love this group of doctors... they are not telling us to quit smoking as they step out for a smoke .. not speaking of health while morbidly obese! ... like the doctors we have all had our entire lives.

    Nathan Pritikin managed to reverse his heart disease on a unrefined starch based vegan diet with b12 supplement. Nathan Pritikin decided to include the minimum animal products to avoid b12 supplements and to gain mainstream acceptance. Both the nathan pritikin diet and the dr dean ornish diet (allows egg whites, non fat dairy, fish oil capsules) are now accepted by medicare for heart disease. The prepared speeches of Dr Michael Greger are already widely available on youtube and a format of question and answer might be more interesting.

      I have heard of people reversing heart disease like enlarged heart from people following the dr mcdougall diet. drmcdougall com has free forums where people can ask questions. Heart valve problems are usually not solved by unrefined plant diets. To reduce risk for stroke, can give up all added salt.

      Among health conscious people, there is wide agreement on avoiding processed foods and refined substances like oil, salt, sweeteners, etc. With our overpopulation, everyone is just praying that we do not have serious crop failures that will affect major crops like wheat, corn and rice, and most people cannot be too choosy about their cheap starch staples in order to survive. Dr Michael Greger does warn people about dry high temperature cooking so steaming and boiling is healthier.

      Don't worry, in 30 years every one in two children will be born with birth defects and Autism- a simple nutrient deficiency. Alzheimer's disease which has been cured in animals decades ago, will exceed epidemic levels. Yet we have Dr Greger promoting lower cholesterol through a vegetarian diet. Won't he be red faced when the truth comes out that cholesterol is actually the hero and not the demon that he and main stream medicine have used as an excuse to sell highly profitable Staten drugs, and of course promote vegetables. BTW do a search for Dr Gladden- The 12 bad foods and get back to me about those grains.

      I heard our population is doubling about every 30 years but I am not sure if we will ever get to 14 billion people. With our current overpopulation, my guess is most people will have to make do with conventional vegetables and conventional tubers and conventional whole grains to get enough calories.

      You mean unhealthy lifestyles supported by the wrong philosophy of medicine. yet what is the sense of eating more vegetables if they are nutrient deficient? Isn't that like adding extra gas to your car to get better gas mileage? If only we could find a doctor to promote eating more vegetables and back it up with research funded by the drug industry.
