  • It is unhealthy in absolute terms, at the very least because it stimulates IGF-1 production and directly contributes to cancer risk (in addition to the saturated fat), as well as in relative terms compared to whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
    Sure, a scoop of organic cottage cheese is healthier than a hot dog, but then again, a handful of gravel is healthier than a pound of hemlock roots. Doesn't mean it's good for you to eat it.

  • These videos are great examples of how important it is to look at nutritional studies critically as Dr. Greger does, rather than taking them at face value as much of the media tends to do!

  • I now know that cheese does cause cardiovascular disease because my fiance was eating a vegetarian diet with no meat at all. But he did include cheese and fruits and vegetables and he passed away of Cardiovascular disease a year ago. So I now truly know the truth. I was 95% vegan. SIDE NOTE, HE HAD A VERY PHYSICALLY ACTIVE JOB OF LANDSCAPING AND THAT DID NOT STOP THE AFFECTS OF THE CHEESE… : (

    5.0 out of 5 starsWe credit Dr. Stephen Sinatra for saving my husband from END STAGE HEART DISEASE – Cholesterol is a red herring!

    Format: Paperback|Verified Purchase
    Cardiologist Dr. Stephen Sinatra MD is RIGHT ON THE MONEY. We owe my husband's continued life to the TRUTH as revealed by Dr. Stephen Sinatra as he discusses in his books including The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology and Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?. When I heard the Great Cholesterol Myth was coming out I quickly nabbed a copy from our local library – I have since purchased a copy here on Amazon to be able to share with our many friends who are overly concerned with their cholesterol to the detriment of over-looking inflammation. Be sure to get the NEW & UPDATED 2015 version of the The Great Cholesterol Myth Now Includes 100 Recipes. The Great Cholesterol Myth Now Includes 100 Recipes for Preventing and Reversing Heart Disease: Why Lowering Your Cholesterol Won't Prevent Heart Disease-and the Statin-Free Plan that Will

    Dr. Sinatra discussed The Great Cholesterol Myth in good detail on the Dr. Oz show. Both Dr. Oz and Dr. Sinatra have publicly stated they no longer believe so many people should be prescribed statin drugs and they both have discussed why children should NOT be taking statin drugs.

    When entire teams of cardiologists sent my husband home to die and gave us NO advice to keeping him alive, a friend told us about The Sinatra Solution: Metabolic Cardiology and Lower Your Blood Pressure in Eight Weeks: A Revolutionary Program for a Longer, Healthier Life. We also found Reverse Heart Disease Now: Stop Deadly Cardiovascular Plaque Before It's Too Late and The Doctor's Heart Cure, Beyond the Modern Myths of Diet and Exercise: The Clinically-Proven Plan of Breakthrough Health Secrets That Helps You Build a Powerful, Disease-Free Heart informative as well. In Dr. Sinatra's books we learned the truth of the Awesome Foursome (supplements) and how to re-energize the heart at the cellular level. Instead the 10 years prior his former medical doctors always lectured him about his cholesterol levels (never high, but they wanted his levels lower due to his former diagnosis of type 2 diabetes (now "resolved" per our primary care M.D.) and hypertension (under far better control now since we learned the truth of Metabolic Cardiology.)

    Despite being prescribed statins, high blood pressure medications and diabetes medications, my husband developed END STAGE heart disease. After 4 stents his ejection fraction was still less than 15%, he could not get out of bed to get a shower, he was weak, sick, frail and pale. Today he's growing stronger, vibrant, glowing skin and is the picture of improving health. ALL because of healthy eating and VERY wise supplementation including the Awesome Foursome as Sinatra writes to great length about – magnesium, l-carnitine, d-ribose, and co-enzymeQ10 (though we prefer to use ubiquinol with PQQ instead.)

    INFLAMMATION IS THE PROBLEM. Lack of NUTRITION is the problem. OVER-PROCESSED FOOD is the problem (we refer to this as chemicalized sludge). OVER-MEDICATION is the problem! Egotistical medical doctors who deny the truth further contribute to the problem! HEAVY METALS is ALSO part of the problem. Find a ACAM doctor willing to do an IV Chelation challenge with urinalysis and see which heavy metals are involved – we're repeatedly seeing MERCURY, LEAD, THALLIUM and MRI Contrast GADOLINIUM among our friends and acquaintances on local support groups. We will NEVER EVER EVER consent to an MRI with contrast EVER AGAIN, GADOLINIUM IS TOXIC! GADOLINIUM CAUSED MY HUSBAND's ATRIAL FIBRILLATION AND PARTIAL PARALYSIS.

    The answer is NUTRITION, supplementation wisely, ANTI-OXIDANTS for reducing inflammation, EDTA treatments followed up mineral supplementation to remove heavy metals, etc. We use LOTS of turmeric in our home for cooking rice, soups, stews, homemade french salad dressing, etc. Turmeric is an awesome anti-inflammatory – so much so my husband controlled pain from surgery to repair his hip fracture – yes, turmeric is indeed that powerful! This is why turmeric has been used so widely in Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as in Ayurvedic medicine (India) as practiced the past 4,000 – 8,000 years, respectively. Garlic and the other culinary herbs have so many wonderful phytonutrients that also help to further reduce inflammation and increase overall cardiovascular health, this is why they have been so widely used over many thousands of years. Our ancestors were far wiser than we generally give them credit.

    By the way, STATIN DRUGS deplete Co-enzyme Q 10 which causes MUSCLE PAIN, JOINT PAIN, CRIPPLED "arthritic" HANDS, BACK PAIN, etc. Read THE GREAT CHOLESTEROL MYTH for the truth… you will be surprised.

    Highly Recommend! EVERYONE concerned with heart disease should read The Great Cholesterol Myth. We feel this is so vital that we are giving a copy to our cardiologist and primary care doctor so they are on the same page with us. Please consider giving a copy of this book to YOUR primary care doctor and YOUR cardiologist, let's get them ALL on the same page for the benefit of our entire society as a whole. Big Pharma is NOT looking out for our best interests.

  • I love vegans! The more of them there are, the more meat and dairy there is for me.

    Cheese products are 'healthy' if your genetics allow for it. If the gene pool you belong to made it to Europe, you will likely get benefits from eating fermented dairy products. If your forbears didn't make it out of Africa, or they traveled toward or to Asia, there is a good chance you will have difficulty even digesting dairy products.

    The growing evidence from observational studies is that some people can even benefit from a carnivorous diet. Growing evidence from observational studies indicate that some people are unable to excrete the calcium compounds formed from ingesting oxalates efficiently enough to maintain a diet including mostly vegetables without becoming very ill. These studies that rely on people to accurately fill out questionnaires about their dietary practices retroactively for large periods of time are no longer producing accurate outcomes in my eyes. Sure, observational double-blind studies studies are the most costly, but they are the gold standard. When so many people are cutting out vegetables and fruits completely and getting their blood work done to ensure they are not doing themselves harm, we are becoming more aware that the human species is not uniform in dietary requirements.

  • I love your channel. But you sound like George W Bush lol!!! He’s a dumb ass and it is “bad” for your cause to teach smart stuff with a dumb ass voice – no offense. Consider a voice model to read in your stead.

  • You defend one of these fictional stories:
    Atheist
    Theoretical Science – Space (Big Bang) ATOM, remove Electron create Explosion
    The Jesuits, invented Big Bang, Spaceballs and you an Ape like creature who requires the consumption of Flesh and Blood.

    Theist
    Creation Science – Heaven (Holy Spirit) ADAM, remove Rib create Women
    The Jesuits, instruct you to obey God in Heaven for HE has given you every Clean and Unclean animal to be your food.

  • Vegans are plant based however plant based does not mean vegan. There is a difference.

    VEGANISM is a Philosophy that alters life choices such as, yet not limited to, the foods one consumes.

  • i consider cheese to be an okayish food
    not "really" great, too salty — and pasteurized cheese digests just "slightly better" than grains/legumes
    on a 1(gluten pasta) to a 10 (wheatgrass scale) cheese would be a 3 to 5

  • peanut butter is similarly tasty like cheese
    but its super hard to digest
    i know u faggats do everything in moderation, but try eating 700g of cheese and 700g of peanut butter
    the cheese digests better and doesnt make ur belly hurt the next day

  • good luck getting proper levels of protein on a vegan diet without superfoods like spirulina
    there is a reason why most countries eat "hard to obtain" animal products, and no its not just because of the taste

  • 💯👏👏👏👏🙏🙏🙏🌱🌱🌱🌱
    Cue the Keto/paleo/LCHF fans with little to no actual credible science based sources to offer compared to the thousands of studies going back decades now cited by WHO, increasing large teaching universities, ACA, etc. On his website Dr Greger provides lists of every study and source he cites below each video/article and encourages reading them and learning tell good from bad ones. His arm chair critics should do the same. There are multiple forums where you can debate him so go for it.

  • saturated fat really isnt that bad
    im not sure if id call it good but it doesnt make my heart sting (and ive eaten a lot of cocoa and coconut oil at times…like a looot)
    only transfat and cholesterol do that
    satfat raises blood cholesterols a bit but i dont feel the negative effect tbh, and my body is sensitive af

  • Fermentation byproducts?

    Achaar, Kimchi, other fermented and pickled…

    Terpenes, Dr. Greger.

    Cover all the physiologic pathways including those further downstream and intracellular/intraorganellar pathways and receptors INCLUDING those for sugars, amino acids, lipids…

    The terpenes from the cattles' feeds [can include tierral vegetation] are one excuse dairy entities utilize to progress their objectives [you are what you…?].

    … so, spaceports are opening, Dr. Greger.

    Stool is less-welcomed, now.
