Reply Mitchell Goldberg says: October 10, 2019 at 6:56 am Mankind are omnivores. We eat both plants and meat. All energy comes from the sun. It’s absorbed by plants which are eaten by herbivores which are eaten by carnivores . Omnivores eat everything. Meat is higher on the food chain than plants. Processing tends to decrease nutrition- on the other hand before processed foods, when you had to pick your own food and kill your own meat it was possible to starve. I like processed foods. I like dairy. Reply Richard Sub says: October 10, 2019 at 6:59 am Turning the food pyramid upside down is a good start. Reply Madison Parker says: October 10, 2019 at 7:14 am If you think MEAT is the problem and not SUGAR… come on guys, its 2019. Reply Robert Tucker says: October 10, 2019 at 7:24 am What a bunch of garbage Reply Fastnail says: October 10, 2019 at 7:33 am Are the panel and politicians still paid for by thier chums in Big Pharma and Big Food? Reply farmerbob96 says: October 10, 2019 at 7:39 am This is just a way to fuel the war between Vegans and carnivores.Can't you just agreed to a common goal, to help people get off processed crap?No. You're all fanatical zealots who must force the world to convert to your ideology.Good job. Okay can you think about all the innocent children harmed by your war?No – convert or die. HmmmBrilliant and look you've both got doctors to help you spread the good word about vegan/carnivore miracles.Well nothing can possibly go wrong with that😕😕😕Back to war with you. Reply Ollie Barbor says: October 10, 2019 at 7:41 am What vitamin or mineral can you find in vegetables and fruit that you cannot find in meat or dairy? It's hilarious you need a committee of people to tell you what to eat. Enjoy your GMO soy. Reply Lazar Otasevic says: October 10, 2019 at 7:59 am there is no b12 nor carnosine in plants, what more freaking evidence you want?

Holy hell. The American diet lacks fiber. People all around the world have to understand we’re not carnivores/omnivores. Reply KiwiBanana says: October 10, 2019 at 9:11 am Thank you. Reply Nomad says: October 10, 2019 at 9:14 am Dang, Doc. What a great talk. Very eloquent, factual, and to the point. Beautiful! Thank you for speaking on behalf of all of us! Reply Markus Byström says: October 10, 2019 at 9:44 am So the veganindustry wants us to belive that eating hyper processed chemical junk(TOFU) instead of meat is somehow going to make us healthy. When the bioavailability of EAA, FA, fatsoluable vitamins is lacking in these foods or just isn't there at all. Sure there's energy. Thankfully the vegan industry also provide you with a ton of medicine or "Supplements" so that they can charge even more for their "healthy" food. Clearly veganism isn't a health choise. Now we can have a discussion on the ethics behind it all, but claiming veganism is healthy is just a pure lie. Veganism can sometimes be healthy with lots of supplements if you have the genetics for it. But most vegans still end up with poor bonemineralisation, wich i'd guess is most likely due to the lack of bioavailable forms of Vitamin A, D plus all the fiber causing malresorptions in the intestine. Reply Rob Markus says: October 10, 2019 at 10:10 am I think the evidence is in the appearance of this Dr. I wouldn't want to take health advice from someone that resembles something from the Walking Dead. Reply Reality Design1 says: October 10, 2019 at 10:35 am Great video. Love the beard, keep it going…👍😊👍😊👍😊👍 Reply Eddie Rogovoy says: October 10, 2019 at 11:17 am Why everybody consider keto or low carb as the opposite of plant based?! The right way to do keto, as I do, is plant based.. Most of the volume comes from veggies., I eat meat and fish in moderation, and have most of my fats also from plants as olive oil, nuts and seeds, and some coconut oil. I do eat dairy but it's ocational. The biggest question is fruits, right? So I'm not really doing keto but low carb, which means that I usually restrict myself to 1-2 fruits a day max Reply Carb Up With Krystle says: October 10, 2019 at 11:19 am FABULOUS job Dr Greger! Reply Raven daKnitta says: October 10, 2019 at 11:29 am Hey doc, it's good to see you! Reply D Is says: October 10, 2019 at 11:38 am Im glad those vegan skeletons are letting me know about the benefits of gmo plant based kibble. Reply Mark F says: October 10, 2019 at 12:10 pm People still believe we need fiber ? Reply Mark F says: October 10, 2019 at 12:49 pm So processed meats are not good but fake meats are? Reply David Senteno says: October 10, 2019 at 1:19 pm I watched a news report about a recent study showing processes meats having no link to cancer. I watched in disbelief and then realized the meat industry must be really worried if they are starting a propaganda campaign to keep you eating their poison. I would think people would have learned from Big Tobacco…but people still smoke don't they. Reply David Krane says: October 10, 2019 at 1:20 pm We need zero fiber and all the digestible spirulina and other plankton and algae we can fill up on. Where is the mention of the healthiest food for humans? Reply Chris Pregot says: October 10, 2019 at 1:22 pm This is so weird this is like politicians talking about diet with campaign speeches Reply Angie M says: October 10, 2019 at 1:36 pm Dr. Greger, you are one of my top favorite people, ever. Reply chiyerano says: October 10, 2019 at 1:46 pm I am going to buy Dr. Greger's Carbophobia book as well as his How not to Die book to support him and the cause for good health and nutrition and to keep some very good information constantly on hand for myself.

Reply Maureen K says: October 10, 2019 at 3:17 pm The BEST!! Reply Kevin Jorgensen says: October 10, 2019 at 3:26 pm I have a huge problem. After being on Keto for 2 years I decided to go over to a plant based diet beginning yesterday. I didn't check my blood sugar levels until today. I'm not diabetic……………………….yet, but I check my blood sugar most days, usually after a meal. My fasting level has always been 80-100. Sometimes there's a morning bounce and I'll go up to 115. After meals I'll go up too 130-140 depending on what I eat then drop back over the next 3 hours. Today I ate oats and 4-5 dates plus some coconut crème. My blood sugar jumped up to 185. Its never been that high ever. It came down to the 130s late this afternoon so I had a plate of seedless grapes for dinner. Checked my blood an hour later and its almost 200! What's going on? Reply MyCurvyStory says: October 10, 2019 at 3:41 pm Thank you Dr. Gregor, for standing up there and fighting for the American People’s RIGHT to know the risks about what foods we are lead to believe are healthy or not. I hope more people are inspired by you and your evidence based work ❤️ Reply Rosa D Garcia says: October 10, 2019 at 4:20 pm Fyi… volunteer at food ministries for the poor and at food banks and you will have a measure as to how much out of stock merchandize is donated or thrown out..Even the poor don't trust the freshness of processed meats like hots dogs and lunch meets from popular brands. And fyi..my guess is the Amazon jungle is burning down to plant SOY BEANS there is no other way to offer people or pupulations worldwide plant based PROTEIN EXCEPT by processing more doy beans which in order for that not to hurt the human body in the long term consumption is to fermented as in TOFU. in the long road to sustainability roaming cows are probably a better option for the environment. Reply Rocketscientist66 says: October 10, 2019 at 4:26 pm Forget the guidelines, eat whole foods, healthy fats & oils, plenty of vegis. No more processed foods and no more sugar! Whether you eat meat or not, organic, only 100% grassfed is the way to go. The intelligent people of the world will decide their own fate and will support the food industries producing these whole, healthy foods. Don’t wonder when more & more crappy processed foods will be left sitting on the shelves. The word is spreading and the good news too about sick people healing themselves ONLY WITH HEALTHY EATING! Not with less food or low fat. And not with meds! Just the right foods and the healthy fats. The science is on our side my friends. Too bad our so called „leaders“ are dragging their feet in joining this healthy way of life. Reply परमेश्वर says: October 10, 2019 at 4:46 pm Go Dr. Greger!!!!!! Reply Marco Redaelli says: October 10, 2019 at 5:00 pm GO AGAIN! That was epic! Reply Rafael Birkner says: October 10, 2019 at 5:44 pm First of all they should remove "protein" from the "plate" as protein is not a food – and the "cow milk" glass of course… Reply Samuel Hartman says: October 10, 2019 at 6:28 pm hahahaahah RACHEL Reply David Levy says: October 10, 2019 at 6:45 pm Just bought your first book. I can’t thank you enough for your hard work. You are the kind of person that gives me hope in humanity. Can’t wait for your next book to come out. This coming from a family of 4 vegans! Reply susan brandt says: October 10, 2019 at 6:51 pm Fantastic video. Thanks for posting! Reply Alex R says: October 10, 2019 at 7:06 pm I kinda don't want the plant based information to spread because I want myself to be healthy and others to be weak and sick lol. There is so much competition as it is, can you imagine how much more cut throat things will be when most people are fit and healthy? Reply Kristen Blocker says: October 10, 2019 at 7:49 pm Long live Dr. Greger Reply ConikiTV says: October 10, 2019 at 8:52 pm Brilliance of biblical proportions, bravo Michael, bravo. Regards Con 😎 Reply pleiades says: October 10, 2019 at 9:05 pm Change the guidelines. More fat in our dietGovernment has no right in our food. Low Carb Healthy FatDrop all wheat grains sugar and pasteurized dairy. The guidelines Have made us fat and ugly. Recommend fasting every week to drop type 2 diabetes Reply fandango costner says: October 10, 2019 at 9:20 pm “Dietary guidelines, killing Americans since the late ‘70’s”, should be your tag line. The clinical and nutritional experts have been, and continue to be, feckless problem solvers. Vegans and vegetarians die of cancer at the exact same rates as evil meat eaters. Go rob a bank with a pork chop. Reply अष्टावक्रः ashtavakra says: October 10, 2019 at 9:25 pm We're all different, make your own guidelines! Reply Conscientious Omnivore says: October 10, 2019 at 9:38 pm Thank you Dr. Greger for all that you do! Let's hope that they listened to your speech as well as the other great plant based doctors. Reply David Daniels says: October 10, 2019 at 10:27 pm Doctor, I can only tell you that having changed my diet to low carb my A1C has dropped and so has my triglycerides. You spoke about the dangers of processed meats. That’s great. Tell me your thoughts about the consumption of pasture raised beef. I think there is a real danger of well-intentioned individuals talking past each other on nutrition issues. My low carb includes eating 10 cups of vegetables per day. But I also eat, meat and fish. Perhaps not one diet fits all. I do appreciate doctors like you taking such a passionate interest in nutrition. The public needs you to be the leaders in educating them about just how much their health outcomes are controlled by their choices. Reply TheJasontaylor1989 says: October 10, 2019 at 10:55 pm Problem is with plants is the anti nutrient content, but vegans are blind to to this. Reply Augusto Dapino says: October 11, 2019 at 12:00 am Why is the state even meddling with people's diet? Reply kingmike40 says: October 11, 2019 at 12:21 am The committee will probably get bought off by big meat, cheese, and dairy. Where's big salad? Reply kingmike40 says: October 11, 2019 at 12:52 am I go everyday. One big long one. Mostly plants but I do eat a little meat. No cheese. The other day I was in our company cafeteria and I order a veggie burrito. The cook must think eggs and cheese are veggies. I realized that he thought that it's impossible to have a meal without animal products. It's so ingrained in the American people that it feels impossible for them to eat without animals. Reply Cam Whitman says: October 11, 2019 at 1:01 am Lies x 10 to the 37th power. Reply Jared Malone says: October 11, 2019 at 1:02 am I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes almost a year ago. I’ve researched so many diets and still have NO clue which is best for me. My doctors just throw more meds at me. It’s like they don’t want me to actually be healthy. Reply Aaron Crawford says: October 11, 2019 at 2:11 am Dr Greger, great work! Thank you for your efforts, its meant a great deal to the health of my family.

Greed has over taken common sense and common good in the business world. Reply Adam Eve says: October 11, 2019 at 4:27 am As a vegan – this video seems a bit too propagandish.

Reply what what says: October 12, 2019 at 12:10 pm I don't think anyone will ever take the dietary guidelines advice ever again. This committee has been a joke. Is my current diet the right diet? I don't know, but I know they definitely don't know. Reply Alexander K says: October 12, 2019 at 12:30 pm You are a real hero Reply Mara More says: October 12, 2019 at 1:20 pm Thank you, Dr. Greger.

If you want to be well, take personal responsibility for it. How'd many died from transfats?I don't care what this board has ever said, or will ever say. And thank goodness – nutrition guidelines have likely been the prime cause of death for more Americans than any other root cause.Is anyone talking about the physiological damage done to the cupro-enzyme systems (including cytochrome c oxidase, the enzyme that chops oxygen, and turns it into water as the enzyme releases ADP to make Mg-ATP) by copper chelating glyphosate (even in stomach acid) and copper absorption blocking high fructose corn syrup? No mention? Reply Mariana Periklis says: October 13, 2019 at 1:38 am absolutely brilliant!

Simple carbs, bread, sugar, soda, etc. aren't these the things that are poisoning the West? Reply Jordan Pike says: October 16, 2019 at 10:05 am I poop 2-4 times a day. Just sayin'.

What is the idea as far as eventually getting them to recommend a vegan diet? Is that never going to happen? Reply Animal Vigilant says: October 17, 2019 at 12:48 pm Tell them what’s up Gregor !!!! I met someone yesterday that has cancer and is not suppose to live very long. I recommended to stop consuming dairy.
