  • I will never allow a sweet potato to cross my lips… I come from Idaho where we ear real spuds !!  When the chow hall had ham and yams, I went to mcDonalds !!!

  • The down side! I am a part of the of1%. If every body starts eating sweet potato, my pharmaceutical company that provides the chemo drugs will lose money.

    I was only able to afford 2 islands in the Bahamas last week…lol

  • There is such a high dose of beta carotene in one sweet potato that people who eat just one, who also take a multiple vitamin, will be seriously over-dosing on A, which could produce carotenemia. And is there any other hidden toxicity to huge over-doses of vitamin A? As in liver damage? I know someone who ate an orange sweet potato with a large helping of romaine lettuce and red pepper every day, sometimes with carrots, as well as her daily multiple vitamin and she turned orange. It took months for the orange to completely disappear once she stopped this, being that she ate this way for years thinking she was eating healthy. She became very concerned when finally taking notice of her orange skin because she thought she was jaundice. Nobody talks about this. I think this over-dosing on foods with beta carotene should be seriously considered and written about being that food is just like medicine. And plus–nowhere can be found a comparison of the nutritional value of a WHITE sweet potato versus an orange one. Is the white lower in beta carotene? I would think so being that there is no orange color, but by how much exactly? Do you know? I think people should limit the orange, perhaps mix a portion of orange with a white sweet potato, (if the white is in fact lower in beta carotene), and be aware of their vitamin A intake. People who go crazy with healthy foods can actually be damaging their bodies. I know that too much of anything is bad, but most people do not connect this "saying" with potatoes.

  • More real facts right from the bullshit console of we need suckers to worry about getting cancer. I just love this great information that is sooo full of crap, because now I know where to get fertilizer.

  • I'm addicted to your videos. It's causing my eyes and mouth to get dry, my feet to swell, my brain to spin and fill. I need you to do a video on how to make me stop watching your videos, just long enough to heal. Then I'll find that moderation, without a pill, isn't just a slow kill, more a thrill, because your videos are so great as I climb this ole hill to a rip WFPB old age! If attempting to watch thousands of your videos doesn't kill me first…

  • The trouble with sweet potatoes is that they are the second highest among common foods in oxalic acid and oxalates, which block mineral absorption and can lead to kidney stones. It turns out oxalic acid's and oxalates' bad effects can be somewhat mitigated by taking citric acid with the meal. Spinach is the highest common veggie with oxalates, sweet potatoes are second. So if you are going to have either, take half a teaspoon of pure citric acid with them to neutralize the oxalates and allow your minerals to be absorbed.

  • Some recipe ideas!

    Don’t bake sweet potatoes, it creates acrylamide, which is carcinogenic (he talks about this in another video, search “acrylamide” on his channel). Boil them, and try like this:
    -mash with coconut oil, cinnamon, and stevia
    -mash with coconut oil and a little salt
    -mash and form into patties with other veggies, cook at a low heat setting to avoid acrylamide formation
    -mash into a sweet potato pancake recipe, low heat to avoid acrylamide
    -let cool completely, place in a blender with soy milk, pea protein(try vanilla flavor), a little nutmeg and cinnamon (or “pumpkin pie spice), blend into a creamy shake
