  1. Prior to this year, the Dietitians Association of Australia was funded by animal agriculture and processed food companies Nestle and Sanitarium. This year that’s all changed, thank goodness. Now they won’t accept sponsorship from ANY food industry company. From their website…
    “DAA will not consider partnerships with organisations within or related to food manufacturing and food industry associations or alcohol companies.” https://daa.asn.au/about-daa/corporate-partners-and-alliances/

    A step in the right direction. 👏✅

  2. How are corporations "legally required to maximize shareholder profits"? That text is lifted out of a 'head-to-head' debate sort of article. …that seems like a disingenuous way to start out the video – citing that passage like it's fact…

  3. Today I learned anyone who's experienced success on a high-carb, low-fat diet that includes refined sugar is either paid by the sugar industry, an addict, a rapist, or a troll. Good to know.

    Going to finish my bowl of potatoes with sugary BBQ sauce and a glass of pineapple juice.

    Lean body, perfect lipid panel, vitamins and minerals. Hate us 'cause they ain't us.

  5. how does sugar cause inflammation though? Nobody has actually shown the causation. High blood sugar causes high insulin fasting levels yes but that is from excess dietary fat. It aint sugars fault.

  6. I really want to finish the video, but the way Dr. Greger talks, it is so fast like lightning speed, also I am having difficulty pinpointing which part of the sentence is a pause or a period. He talks on and on and on. Like if I am watching an action movie, Dr Greger's movie will be all fighting all the way, there is no stopping or talking. Hard to get through or pick the lesson of the movie.

  7. We have to keep the population under control. Without killing babies like China used to (before the installation of KFC and McDonalds that boosted the CVD through the roof) our only way to keep people dying sooner than later is the food supply for the middle and upper classes and poisoning the water supply for the lower class as they cannot afford to purchase as much slow acting poisoned food. Without a food based early death program, I don’t know how we can control the population without killing babies. Our corporate masters work tirelessly to keep the population in check. As their methods are exposed in videos like this, I fear new methods of thinning the herd that are not voluntary in nature (like personally choosing to consume poisonous food like substances) will be used one day.

  8. Trust me, consuming lots of sugary products is really bad. This happens to me now. I recently started to learn baking cakes. With all those sugar, eggs and milk, my acne flares up. I have like almost 10 acnes on my cheek, chin and neck. I used to have bad acne before but then I cut down my intake of sugary and dairy products, it really clear my skin up. Not entirely clear, I do get 1 to 3 pimples or acne but it was much better. I'm telling the truth based on my experience. If you have acne or pimple, reduce sugar and milk intake. Don't give up everyone. Thank you doctor for spreading the word.

  9. No surprise here … money trumps health every time, unfortunately! We must all do our own study independently of food companies. The average person does not delve into the backstory most of the time, and is easily fooled by corporate motives. Coca Cola bought the Odwalla health food company years ago, and then promptly put up more than $700,000 to prevent a proposed California law requiring GMO disclosure on food labels (in direct opposition to the Odwalla company's original health goals when it was founded). When I learned this, I stopped all Odwalla product consumption permanently – when a health food company "sells-out" to big corporations that do not care about public health, I abandon that company. The same is now true of Kashi, originally formed in the name of health, but now owned by Kelloggs! And Kelloggs also put about three-quarters of a million dollars into the same GMO labeling attempt to keep California residents from knowing the truth about their food. No more Kashi products for me! It's a matter of principle: how can a "health food" company work to prevent customers from knowing when questionable practices are being used in the products they sell? Keeping the shareholders rich is all they care about, not customer health and longevity!

  10. I am concerned about what "daphnereloaded" posted on her you tube site April21 about green leafy vegetables causing health problems such as goiter and male breasts. Please comment on this. We want to know whats healthy to eat, whats not in vegan diet

  11. I can't stand the taste of artificial sweeteners so I will continue to eat sugar. Besides our body needs glucose for energy and it helps transport sodium and phyto-nutrients.

  12. No good has come or can come from this corruption of science. We can see it in the way Americans seems to hate or resent science, and also in the way the message changes or is unclear in almost everything. This is real life and concerns people's real lives and deaths, and still we just seem to play around with it like it is a game for billionaires.

    The reality seems to be that most of the American economy is build on things that are bad in one way or another that we work to get certain people addicted to. It is a sick system that doesn't work, and we are stuck with it because that is the way our money system works.
