holy shit.... that was... incredible... scary, so scary how on point you were 10 years ago! if this was in an easier to digest format for school kids I would get every class I teach to watch it. 50min max. as it is I will definitely tell them what I learned today but an animated / real footage of factory farms video would be amazing!

Hello Dr.Greger. I’m really happy to find your services. You’re a great saver. I have a question about drinking wine. I have started to be an Ovo-vegetarian and I am going through some changes of my habits. I listened to your podcast today and I wander if I drink or smoke once in a while (not as a habit), am I considered as a moderate drinker or smoker?

Coconut milk is harmful but coconut flakes, as a whole food, are not. What about home made coconut milk, made with plain water and coconut flakes on a high speed blender?

I wonder how much the fasting taking away muscle changes for people who are fat adapted. like if you start a Ketogenic diet first, then fast shouldn't the body be burning the fat instead of the protein?

great 1st episode , However when you mentioned about people likely eating more which drops their metabolism , that only makes sense for people that do that.. what about the people that are not eating more and metabolism drops to a halt?

what could be more nutrient dense than a plant based diet? is this a genuine question? most diets are more nutrient dense than plant based diets. plants are extremely low in nutrient density. that's actually one of the selling points of the vegan diet for weight loss. you can eat forever and still lose weight.

I have been eating plant based for 4 weeks now and I have never felt this good in my life. I'm never going back. It doesn't feel like a diet, I'm not hungry,. I'm not craving sugar and my blood sugar doesn't crash like it used to. Thanks for the great info!
