Dr. Michael Greger scours thousands of the world’s cutting edge scientific studies on clinical nutrition to bring you simple things you can do to improve your, and your family’s, health. This is his presentation tying together his research during 2013 – 2014 on strategies regarding the top twelve causes of doctor visits (including cancer) the latest in cutting-edge research on how a few simple dietary strategies can affect some of our most common medical conditions.
Most of this presentation only indirectly has to do with cancer but it’s such valuable knowledge that I decided to post it.
It’s longer than most of his mini videos (1 hr. 2 min.) but if you’re interested in reducing your and your family’s risk for major illnesses it’s fascinating and valuable listening and will go fast. He injects humor and some nice moving graphics to keep things interesting.
In the long run this presentation may save you and your loved ones a lot of time, money and physical and mental stress.
NOTE: Some of Dr. Greger’s conclusions relate to the vagan diet. I and my wife are not vegans (although we have reduced our meat intake based on the results of the many scientific studies Dr. Greger brings to light in his numerous videos). I look on it like diabetes. Most people can withstand the consequences of our high sugar diet. But a diagnosis of prediabetes or diabetes makes it necesssary for people to adjust their sugar intake. I believe the cancer promoting characteristics of certain meats make it necessary for me and my wife to adjust accordingly (less meat, more fruits and vegetables, unrefined carbohydrates, etc.) to make her biochemistry as unfriendly to cancer cell proliferation as possible.
Metastatic invasive cancer is a radical disease and in my view requires a radical response in lifestyle, diet in addition to conventional treatment (surgery, radiation and chemo).
