  • Love your videos despite being a meat eater.

    This does not explain why the organic milking tubes would have higher phthalates than the non-organic milk they were normally consuming?

  • Meat eaters 100 years ago did not have problems and lived long. Now people do not respect anything and contaminate everything from plants and animals and in turn contaminate people. Avoidance is not the issue since the contaminats get moves around in other ways. Even vegans can not avoid the contaminents and everyone gets it to a degree but meat eaters get it more, BUT some also increases their nutrients even more which helps them the toxins. In short everyone will get hurt sooner or later if it be by water, air, or soil.

  • Knew that this was going to be another 'meat is bad and plant based is great' video. What vegans don't tell you is that plant based foods, like legumes, will give many users stomach problems. This is not true for all vegans, but not all meat eaters have poor health either. Many bad things accumulate over time so before declaring the vegan diet winner you need to follow generation after generation instead of just taking blood samples a few months a part.

    Furthermore, a ten units sample is a really small sample and you want your samples to be higher than that.

  • If you want to reduce your exposure to chemicals including phthalates, don't use or be careful how you apply your fragrance, I.e., don't spray it on skin.Fragrances commonly contain parabens, phthalates, and synthetic musks that may cause hormone disruption, reproductive problems, or possibly cancer.

  • Gosh,……. how many more reason do meat eater need to stop swallowing dead animals and their bodily fluids? meat is TOXIC, it stinks to high heaven!

    Here is a SMALL list of the  awesome diseases and syndromes  that are now scientifically associated with eating Animal products: ALL types of Cancer, Diabetes, Strokes, Rheumatoid arthritis, Gallstones, and Ulcerative Colitis, Asthma, Inflammary Bowel disease, Heart Disease, Parkinson's disease, Hemorrhoids , Dementia , Collibacillosis (E. coli infection), Helicobacter pylori Infestations (which also causes peptic ulcers by damaging the lining of the stomach and small intestine),  Alzheimer disease, Gout, Prostate Enlargement and Incontinence ( aka peeing on yourself), Mad Cow (aka Creutzfeldt–Jakob disease), Atrial Fibrillation ,Calcification of the pineal gland, Leaky Gut Syndrome, MRSA  Bloodstream Infection, Kidney Failure,
    Varicose Veins,  Clostridium Difficile Infection, Fibromyalgia , Constipation, Erectile Dysfunction  and other autoimmune disorders…

  • One sure reality is that removing plastics & chemicals from our lives is impossible. If its not the plastic, its the can, or the box, or the paper, or the package, or the water, or the air, or the dirt… it always going to be something.

    Still, I applaud the good doc for bringing the science to our attention. Nothing changes over night, so the aspiration is that more of us get on board and demand healthier food, food prep, and a healthier environment.

  • We've known for quite some time the harmful effects of hormone disrupting plastics and other chemicals. Skin/hair care products and sunscreen have a lot of these chemicals in them as well. Meat and dairy are concentrated source of a lot of environmental toxins. Invest in some glass and store your beverages and things in it. I would like to know why coriander was so high though because I love that spice and it is a big ingredient in delicious Indian cooking.

  • It pisses me off I grew up on meat, dairy and eggs as I was told I needed them to grow and they were healthy. Whatever… I guess, shit happens.

  • That does it, no more eggs as a meal item for me. I will still use them sparingly, along with evaporated milk for cooking, that's all. The coriander issue has me curious also. Will look into that. Thank you.

  • Could you do a video on diet after gallbladder removal? My boyfriend has a sarcoma and has just had his gallbladder removed after finding several stones. I bought a book on life after gallbladder surgery and the book recommended butter and bacon 😐 needless to say it's in the bin now. Would appreciate your professional advice!

  • Thank you Dr. Greger for your videos. Your statements about chicken consistently testing highest in phthalates kept gnawing at me as to WHY. After pondering it for about a week, something dawned on me. Since the States banned treating hens with hormones, might the chicken feed be spiked with phthalates to make the hens grow bigger?

  • WTF? Why did you ignore and pass by the offending ground coriander? It was not only off the charts with Phthalates, but is relevant to the target audience, ie those already on whole plant based diets! Please don't mealy-mouth words of great relevance, to do so is to invite honest criticism.
