  1. If plant based diet will help to lower risk of most common causes of death, what are the leading causes of death for vegans? Are there any statistics on that?

  2. interested to hear if nuts, avodaoes, flax, nut butters, etc., also have the same effect on the blood and arteries as oils and lards.

  3. wer immer noch nicht glaubt, dass öl schädlich für unseren körper ist, schaut sich mal diese studienzusammenfassung an:
    thanks to dr greger!!!

  4. aaaah i love being a superior human being and not a typical stupid fat chronic disease loving american.  being a vegan is so amazing.  YAY VEGANS!!!  HEEHEHEEHEHEHEEE!!!

  5. If high fat along with animal protein and other substances like roasted flavors i.e. AGEs are so deleterious to health, why are we sensitized to them, why do we crave them? It's just all too cruel.

  6. I try to get at least 75 grams of fat each day. One needs that for max T production. It's actually not that easy. Not enough fat, and estrogen takes over, and one gets fat.

  7. Dr. Greger failed to mention that Canola oil and Salmon oil don't have the same negative effect as even the great and touted heart-healthy olive oil.

  8. I'm curious, is there anyone following a whole-foods plant-based diet for long enough to see the benefit who feels compelled to troll Paleo diet websites and spew nonsense? I can't imagine anyone wasting that much time . . . unless they have a financial interest or an eating disorder.

  9. Let's say you add two tablespoons of cold pressed avocado oil to your medley of vegetables and whole grain rice, millet, or quinoa after everything is prepared so as not to damage the oil from heat, would that be harmful?

  10. I have a chronic illness/disease that affects the dilation of my arteries when changing positions from lying, to sitting, then from sitting to standing. Essentially blood pools into the calfs of my legs and because there's no dilation it doesn't constrict my blood pressure from droppping, therefore it doesn't reach the brain,  I'll then obtain tachycardia (fast heart rate) to compensate. In the mean time I'll go woozy have a spaz fit.

    I think I've damaged my body from never eatinghealthy food, lacking nutrients, and not exercising. :/
    society with its addicting processed foods and animal products and ill information is the reason I have such a restrictive life with a shitty chronic illness.

  11. As predicted, the know-it-all fucknut appears with his "cutting edge" science that he retrieved from Google.

    Bravo for being pseudo-intellectual.

  12. Complete nonsense! There is no evidence that saturated fat causes heart disease whatsoever! 

    Since the 1970s when low-fat diets were promoted, obesity rates have skyrocketed from just 2% to a whopping 25% of the population!

    Why would I choose margarine, which is a slew of chemicals and is grey before it's dyed yellow, over natural butter containing only cream and salt?

  13. Why is heart disease still the No. 1 killer in America if the low-fat dietary advice pushed since the 1970s is right?

  14. I was starting to get heart pain during my high fat vegan diet experiment a few months ago.  I was consuming nuts and seeds, avocados, and coconut, olive and flax oil for the bulk of my calories, along with tons of vegetables and some low sugar fruits.  It wasn't working at all.  Was getting arthritis, and other terrible symptoms that all went away when I went back to high carb.

  15. I've been vegan for a few years now and maybe it's just me, but I've become so sensitive to my body that every once in a while when I do eat butter or cream or egg yolks I can almost feel it in my heart the fat clogging in my artery, LOL

  16. Help me understand what morons click dislike on this video when they can even spell endothelium without autocorrect helping. Seriously. What's to dislike??

  17. hello dr greger,
    can you please do a video on that study?
    http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0088278
    it supposedly shows,that vegetarians are unhealthier

  18. Inject fat via IV? Is that how we eat fat? Or just to win the argument no matter how absurd is the experiment? I am not a doctor, common sense, which every human are born with, tells me something fishy going on here.

  19. For more info on this, read up on Dr. Roy Swank, who began to research this topic more than 50 years ago, even though he didn't have the means for such in depth findings then, of course.

  20. Aha I just don't have the time for this, FAT DOESN'T CAUSE HEART DISEASE. For fuck sake. Instead of telling people to avoid a vital component in their diet tell them what they can actually do to help there heart. It is ironic that these fats and cholesterol are so demonized since they are so vital for heart and arterial integrity. The bodies inability to heal and maintain these components are the reason they are failing.
    Vitamin C is certainly the most important factor, I honestly think if everyone in the Western world took 2grams of Vitamin C a day (assuming they have enough copper) almost no one would get heart disease. There are other factors too like Low selenium can induce a weak heart etc. But Vitamin C is the single most potent thing anyone can do to help there heart.

  21. Anyone with any thoughts on algae-based DHA as an "isolated plant fat" affecting arteries? I wonder of there's a certain threshold for it to exert an effect bc it's a minute amount

  22. Fatty meals MAY impair artery function, but they DON"T. Insulin resistance is killing more Americans every decade, yet you keep urging people to eat a low-fat (high-carb) diet. That's what gives us obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, and a whole rogues gallery of ghastly diseases that you physicians can only shake their heads at and offer not cure for. It's the diet, stupid!
