Dr Greger is absolutely correct. In most of the USA the medical industrial complex that makes their money off of mammography and surgery has the population brainwashed.In my training during the 1970s we routinely removed women's entire breast and axillary lymph nodes and in addition often radiated them with horrendous morbidity and complications. This was the current "wisdom" and the patients followed it blindly for many years after it had been shown to be unnecessary. This is the same learning process going on today but American medicine is so hidebound and profit-oriented that change is very slow, much to the detriment of the patients. Note that Dr. Greger never says, "this is how it is." but rather says' "this is what we can reasonably surmise from science so far." Reply Vahid M says: February 23, 2018 at 2:04 pm You know what I find to be ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE?! These people (who are fighting and crying about the possibility of putting armed teachers in our schools) have NO PROBLEM with putting armed guards at the BANKS to protect their MONEY. These people have NO PROBLEM with armed guards at the malls to protect their MERCHANDISE. These people have NO PROBLEM having armed officers protect our TOURIST sites and American Monuments. These people have NO PROBLEM with armed guards on Capitol Hill to protect our POLITICIANS… no problem with the armed men lining our roads to protect our TRAFFIC LAWS or to catch a would be DOPE SMUGGLER, BUT these people think putting ARMED GUARDS at SCHOOLS to PROTECT their CHILDREN is too FRIGHTENING? ARE YOU SERIOUS?! These people DONT WANT GUNS PROTECTING THE CHILDREN in our American SCHOOLS?! Aren't OUR CHILDREN our most PRECIOUS asset? Wtheck is wrong with this picture?!

Like fluoridated water, chlorine, and it’s affects on the human body and bacterial gut biome. I was reading that drinking distilled or purified water is not good for you either because it tends to leach good minerals from your body.. I can’t seem to get the truth. Is fluoridated water a toxin? Is chlorinated water toxic for your body? Tap water vs mineral water vs spring water vs alkaline water vs distilled vs purified.. are water filters necessary? I have gotten sick since moving to a city that chlorinates and fluoridates their drinking/tap water and I noticed skin irritations and poor digestion. I eat a very healthy balanced vegan diet, and I am not getting better. I have a bacteria/gut/digestive imbalance and I take probiotics and eat fermented veggies. I don’t take medication, and my only thought is it must be the water I drink and bathe in. Back at home, in a very small community, 3 years ago I drank bottled purified water and didn’t have this problem. Now since living in this city, I’ve acquired weird health issues. Anyway, I love your informative health based science videos, and I believe water is crucial to life and prosperity. Why shouldn’t it be discussed and brought to light with science backed literature? Thank you for everything you do and informing people everywhere! Reply Maple Flavor says: February 23, 2018 at 11:03 pm thanks Reply Adam Bryant says: February 24, 2018 at 6:50 am Dr. Greger I love everything you've done and do. I think it would be awesome if you could make a video. I just deleted a very long paragraph. I think it would the best thing if you could just make a video about what you believe and what you think is right. Your own documentary. Not on just the subject but all. Reply Sidilicious says: February 24, 2018 at 6:54 am Yes! I 'knew' it, intuited that this was the case. It's good to have research to back it up. Let's take back the power sisters! Reply Hello Bonjour says: February 24, 2018 at 8:10 am Hi Doctor ! Can you do a series of videos about endometriosis and the "endo-diet" ? I know you're not a gynecologist, but the ones I've seen seem clueless to me Reply Holly Bodaki says: February 24, 2018 at 8:30 am My mom had stage 0 ductal insitu and was advised to do a lumpectomy and chemo, 4 times. Radiation everyday 5 weeks everyday. Over a decade ago. She's doing well, no reoccurrence. Interesting video thank you Reply Cerenade Me says: February 24, 2018 at 11:31 am You have really hit the nail on the head, Dr. Greger. Stay safe!! xo Reply earthpet says: February 24, 2018 at 1:19 pm If you want to help find a cure for breast cancer (or any disease) then support conscientious intelligence research. Supporting anything else would be dumber or evil or both. Reply vitamindubya says: February 24, 2018 at 6:45 pm Is this an ignorance is bliss thing?

Reply Shy says: February 25, 2018 at 2:39 pm I would like to see a video about whether zinc supplement has any impacts on lifespan Reply ElizabethB71 says: February 26, 2018 at 9:49 am Thank you for reminding me to phone up and decline my invitation to join, wait for it,….. a trial of screening in women younger than the usual screening age (50-70 in the UK)! To be fair the NHS have included a leaflet detailing the risks, i.e. that there's 3 times the risk of having unnecessary cancer treatment than there is chance a life could be saved by early diagnosis. I intend to decline all routine screening. Reply Kevin Jackson says: February 26, 2018 at 9:52 am I just went plant based 2 days ago. Can anyone give me some support or some ideas on meal ideas??????? Reply Steevee Gee says: February 26, 2018 at 10:47 am Went to the endocrinologist today. They asked me why I did not choose to take medications, considering that I am a health professional myself. I told them that the underlying cause of graves disease is still not clear, there are many factors involved such as genetics, stress, diet, the environment etc. So why not give my body the best chance to heal itself by working on these factors. It's been a month since I started a whole food plant based diet and I water fast 3-4 days twice a month, plenty of excercise. I was diagnosed with graves disease 2 years ago. My T3 and T4 are now way within normal range, my TSH suddenly went from 'too low to detect' to 0.6, my antibodies decreased significantly. They asked me what I did in the last month and I told them. They laughed, shrugged it off and told me "must be luck". I didn't want to be an ass about it so I just played along.

Reply Clint Sevilla says: March 24, 2018 at 7:03 pm Great work! Reply Jordan Storz says: April 23, 2018 at 7:17 pm I always swore I would never get a mammogram. Mostly because I was phobic of them lol plus I don't want that kind of pain. So my relief and validation is somewhat superficial here, but meh. Reply Bart Tare says: June 2, 2018 at 5:39 am I am very worried about my wife. Two years ago, she was treated for a very small (but high grade with comedo necrosis) area of DCIS with lumpectomy and radiation. All seemed fine until about, I don't know, eight months ago or so. She has a chronic cough, a hoarse voice, and chokes often. She also seems to have lost a significant amount of energy. When I told this to the radiologist, she suggested it might just be acid reflux. I hope to god it is that. But I am worried that the radiation harmed her, or gave her esophageal cancer. She just does not seem like the same person to me. Her voice is weaker, hoarse. I hope I am worrying over nothing. Reply helle hansen says: October 28, 2018 at 10:47 am I'd be really grateful if you could do a video on calcification of the breast tissue, what maybe causes it and what one can do oneself to do anything about it. I was diagnosed this year, 5 years ago there was nothing showing in the mammogram, so it would helpful to learn what, if anything, the doctor said there was nothing I could do, one can do. As it seems many women over the age of 50 have this problem, it would probably be of interest to many others and not just me. Apart from that, I have learned so much from watching your videos and reading your book and would like to thank you for all the information you are putting out there.
