  • How can you eat a low-fiber plant-based diet? I have Crohn's and roughage will typically cause a slight obstruction and extreme cramping pain. I saw your video about the Chinese study which is really compelling!

  • 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.

  • Hello, disagree with Dr. Gregor when it comes to raw peanuts, like other beans, should be soaked overnight for at least 24 hours prior to boiling or roasting as they are a legume,, not a nut. Does not grow on trees.  One can enjoy them as a tasty snack or use them in recipes.

  • thanks for all the inspirational video's. what do you think about hemp seeds in stead of flax. flax are more dangerous because of cyanide, like in Apple seeds…

  • You are my number one go to resource for evidence based nutrition and health information, and I have probably listened to every word you have videoed. I notice more and more often that your intros are so garbled because you are speaking so fast. That's ok for me because I've heard the lines before, but if it was the first time listening, I'd wonder what the heck you were saying and might even be a little put off. I love your lines…please slow down and articulate. Honestly, i am not hatin' on you, I like to pass along some videos to loved ones, and this would not be one of them.

  • Could you make a video on Histamine Intolerance? I have been eating whole plant foods, lower in fat, glutenfree, yeastfree, no oil, low histamine for 4,5y, do yoga every day. Still I have a histamine intolerance, bad digestion, sometimes painful. I have high tryptase, low DAO, copper deficiency (for years now, not improbable with copper supplements) and supposedly still impaired GI linging. It is very very difficult for me to find good information on how to heal a histamine intolerance or just in general the GI tract. Been trying probiotics but that doesn't seem to help much. Maybe you have come across information that shows an effective approach? Thank you from Germany!

  • Every athlete in the world is eatting eggs, chicken, turkey, beef, fish. Look up Matt Lalonde. He has a PHD in organic chemistry from Harvard. Nothing wrong with eating animal matter. These plant nuts are fin wrong.

  • Dr. Greger…For next live Q&A:

    – Doctors say there is no link between LDL and heart disease and it is caused by inflammation, is this true?
    – Why are good doctors recommending coconut oil, despite all the information you present about it?

  • RE: BPA's- how bad are canned products like beans? Sometimes, I need to use canned tomatoes and beans because i just dont have the time to cook from scratch – how bad is it- can i get away with it weekly?

  • I have a question,… can we best avoid plastics?? And I mean really avoid them? Turns out that microplastic is in our water, food, bay formula, beer and even pizza crust…soo….my question is: Do veggies have microplastic in them? What about beans? What foods can we eat to avoid this? Even water treated with reverse osmosis has microplastic in it. This is all over the world. Including 94% of the water in America.

  • if a person has amalgam fillings, do you recommend removal? How do you find the right person qualified in Pittsburgh, PA for example? Thank you for sharing all the research with us! – Jon-Michael K.

  • Are certain body shapes a lot unhealthier to others, or is it not that concerning as long as your at an average body fat%.


    Is it possible to keep a high metabolism/ speed it up

  • Can you tell us the best/acceptable ways that certain plants, nuts, seeds, beans should be prepared other than raw? Should certain nuts/seeds be soaked instead of eaten raw? Are certain veggies better to cook in any way, or in any way equal in value if cooked a certain way? Is there a way to prepare beans to reduce digestion problems? Thank you Dr. G

  • My brother has Stage 5 Kidney Disease and his doctor said to stay away from potatoes, tomatoes, dairy (of course), green leafy veggies, bananas and fruits like apricots (HUH is there another fruit like apricot?).
