    Such a good video! keep up the great work!! 😄

  • Lucca Ranoya

    amazing!! sharing this knowledge!

  • Jon James

    so its ok to eat eggs once in awhile?

  • Shawn Tarlton

    so does this mean its okay to eat fish once or twice a week? since i wont have the bad gut flora, or is that to often (specifically asking in regards to the gut flora)

  • 1964TP

    I would love to hear more about gut bacteria.  How would fasting effect gut bacteria?

  • KungFuChess

    Eat raw milk kefir and same thing happens.. you can then digest milk proteins and cure lactose intolerance.

  • Dylan Slingsby

    in case anyone is curious about the enzyme updatehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7sZ5Nz8_cfc

  • P P

    Such a load of bull. Descended from generations of vegetarians I cannot vouch for any of these findings. The nicest, healthy, generous ( in their late 80s ) people I know simply do not fit into this vacuous model. Tripe!

  • Flash Man

    Mariah Carrie was wrong. There isn't a hero in you. There's a legion of warriors within you! HUUUWAH!

  • MakTheBlade

    +NutritionFacts.org Can you do a video on how cortisol, fight or flight reactions and the HPA Axis effect our gut microbiome?

  • Second Act

    Since I started eating PBWF, I've noticed the evidence of many more friendlies in my life. Just thinking of all the money I wasted on acidopholis over the years while eating a less than optimal diet makes me mad.

  • robertthekingful

    damn really need to get on this vegan shit, eating a fucking tuna sandwich, the more i learn the more fruits and veggies i want to eat

  • aLvaro Mercado

    People keep thinking that veganism is the only way to go... HOWEVER, if you read between the lines you can see that these studies are far from definitive.... the first one only showed a link between typical American diet and high incidence of inflammatory markers, if you want better data then they should exclude one food group at a time. The other study he showed said meat , dairy , and eggs are totally fine to eat provided they don't account for a bulk of the calories consumed....humans are omnivores, this trait has allowed us to infest every part of the globe. So if you tell me that a healthy human population can only follow 1 type of diet then I'm gonna be wanting better data than this.

  • Karl Laur

    Someone needs to tell tigers that they can reduce their intestinal inflammation if they go vegan and you are talked about the choline TMAO hypothesis in another video.

  • NattyHygea123

    Antoine Bechamp microzoma terrain theory

  • Faezal Yunus

    Dr. Greger, I grew up with the notion that we need yogurt for lacto-bacillus. Is that a myth as well? Please elucidate as I just turned vegan and am worried about the gut bacteria.

  • Apollo 440

    I had loose stool for some time until I started eating one type of food for a period of a week or so, then my stool went normal. The product in question is hand made pasta, which brought me (together with a plant based diet) to bowel movement normalisation (regularity and non-looseness). Any studies on "eating the same of whatever for a long period of time leading to better digestion of the whatever in question"?

  • Derek Santos

    An interesting question might be; does our ability to digest and convert ALA from flax and other nuts into long chain omegas increase as our gut micro biome changes?

  • Eelke Aptroot

    After hearing this eating meat and dairy takes a strong gut.....

  • Neophyte

    this has to be one of the strongest indications that we haven't evolved to be able to properly digest meat as a species. It isn't a coincidence that all of the animal products spawn bacteria that are bad for us. We simply haven't had time to adapt to these bacteria evolutionarily. They were never there while we were still fully herbivorous monkeys.

  • racittaj

    that mean that even if you eat eggs once in a while, you will not metabolize and absorb all nutrients in it?..

  • Ivan B

    World class video. I just came from Denver's ACSM science meeting AND the gut microbiome was a BIG area or research. Lots of really cool new discoveries coming out and as always, Dr. Greger is ahead of the game ;-)

  • IJ OP

    I love these new better quality videos. They are actually more educational than before, highlighting lines from peer-reviewed papers.

  • milod hunter

    eat junk and you develop bacteria that can handle it.hahaha

  • Eye Sees You

    Now watch people say "See? It's good to eat meat in moderation"..smh

  • milod hunter

    then eat eggs and meat for several months after that you develop bacteria that can handle animal foods thus properly digested

  • Steph Ss

    Only omnivorous humans keep drinking the carnist Kool-Aid. Give me fruit infused water anyday.

  • MrMasterDebate

    Do nuts contribute to a healthy gut bacteria makeup ?

  • Pete

    does this mean phytic acid doesn't negatively impact vegans in the long run? I soak my food anyway, but odly enough I feel like my food doesn't cook as well when I soak them or taste as good.

  • Jeff Lebowski

    Remember the 3 "B''s: bananas, beans and berries.

  • PJ Phillips

    Can you make a video on how to rebalance our microbiome after antibiotics?

  • Eduardo Huerta

    Is there a video or document that says how to overcome Candidiasis, Leaky Gut, SIBO, Parasites, with a Whole Food Plan Base diet?. I read a lot of documents and I've seen a lot of videos about these, but all they are Paleo-base diet or Ketogenic-base diet. I've never seen any WFPB document which talk about the earlier mentioned issues.Thanks in advance for the video!

  • milod hunter

    nutrition science is too difficult even for nutritionist and very complicated. we always come across something new

  • aregst

    BULLCRAP about meat and diary. The lactobacteria isn't called Lacto because they DON'T live in milk. idiotic claims!!

  • Nod Amob

    I "preach" this daily. I will use this video as resource material to educate more effectively with my other resources.

  • sohnzurrechten

    Anyone here have/had SIBO and got rid of it? If yes, how?

  • Taste Sking

    another reason for a varied diet

  • Simon Rubin

    i love buckwheat!! thanks for using it as the cover pic :)

  • oskar tang

    Does the bacteria in our guts produce B12?

  • Lichtblick

    i want to be friends with my microbiomes

  • Bob Nichols

    This should be updated. We now know that the ratio of human to microbe cells is about 1:1.3. 30 trillion to 39 trillion. The 10:1 ratio stems from a miscalculation in 1972.

  • colonyofcells iamamachine2

    I tend to view myself as just a mobile home for my bacteria masters.

  • Sarah Johnson

    What is your opinion on microbiome supplements such as Plexus?

  • daniel floristeanu

    Then why after 8 months of plant based diet i developed digestive problems like gerd and gastrithis?

  • Gina C.

    Thank you for all these amazing studies- becoming more plant based because of you!

  • Paradoxical Axiom

    Red meat and tmao has been thoroughly debunked. I had severe dysbiosis on a plant based diet, switching to a low carb, high fat, moderate (animal) protein diet has literally given me a new life. I hope you can all keep an open mind and know that everyone is different.

  • The Horny Vegan

    Thumbs up for Vegan Gains destroying No Bullshit in the live debate today

  • A A

    Wait a second... We had our gut bacteria update it's software and thus updating our hardware?!?!? Oh wow. I'm willing to bet that we have a lot of DNA in common with our gut bacteria.

  • kiki cham

    Dr. Greger, please make some videos on rosacea! :( There are no videos on this topic currently and rosacea is hell for anyone who has it..

  • Mindfullness

    Great video !Can you help me, how to cure Candida with a vegan diet?

  • Gabe Guerrero

    I believe a plant based diet and/or a proper nutritional plan is for those persons that are missing the necessary protection from their DNA. I have known people who die of old age on a lifelong diet made up of oils, dairy and sugar. My friend who is 60 years of age drinks a daily table spoon of olive oil and has never experienced cardiovascular issues as other younger family members. Other videos indicate oils can damage blood vessels. My wife of 28 years and who also happens to cook all the meals has never suffered from high sugar or cholesterol levels with a Calcium score of zero. However is affected by gold bladder stones that are supposed to be created by high cholesterol. You need to find out what affects you body and address the issues on an individual level. For me a plant based diet is crucial. It has totally reverse type 2 diabetes and lower LDL to 93 from years of high numbers.

  • theplantbasedwarrior

    keep educating us like this Sir. really u r helping people how the way shuld we live our life. Mad respect .

  • Raigou

    eating animal products every now and then is fine, for as long as you don't eat processed meats. the problem is that we breed and raise sick animals. if an animal has been raised in a stressful environment, i doubt its tissue can be as nutritious as that of an animal that's been raised in it's natural habitat, eating the food it evolved to eat. quality animal products are rare in north america. here's an interesting news article about the healthiest hearts in the world, and no it's not vegans: http://www.bbc.com/news/health-39292389

  • Andrey Ruski

    You know some of you vegans support Monsanto right? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that vegetables and fruits are all made in a laboratory and are virtually impossible to digest and to get any kind of nutrients from it; vitamins and hormones A, F, D k2 b6 b12. The animals that solely you love care for actually need to fertilize and to cultivate the  ground soil for organic produce, so you don't have to use monsanto seeds/soil, they don't want to keep growing it yourself and eating it like nature indented to do so, Try growing organic solely, the plants will be eaten, infected and poisoned as soon it's planted on regular soil it's hard to maintain, but can be ultimately grown like naturel intended. They want you to use their soil/seeds.  That is why it is slowly killing your body from no meat and to say that plants will just flush right out of the digestive tract system is a good thing, false that's a bold faced lie because, it doesn't know what to do with the microbiomes it will not ferment or glycation will form and AGE's an ultimately it will be destroyed by your gut flora weak strain of molecules against one thousands preventive biomes will fail when sugar is added to any kind of acid has nothing to absorb. The vegan agenda is in full effect as with the brainwashing that meat is a not the way to go, no freaking shit processed cooked meat or factory big meat is cancerogenic so is pasteurized milk, go to your local organic grass fed farms where they raise animals on grass fed pasture with no spray or gmo fertilizer, an which raw milk is illegal, btw that's your governmernt for you and worldwide effort is to promote agenda 21, go fucking eat your legumes,  veggies and nuts. Soon enough theyll have you starving for starberry jam or grape jelly so youll think its nutritious. When monsanto will run out of your favorite seeds? The answer is they never run out and will keep planting chemicals right up your arse as long as you give them your money. How's that six figure salary Greg!
