Transcript Allow me to begin on a personal note. This is a picture of me, right around the time that my grandma was diagnosed with end-stage heart disease and sent home to die.
She had already had so many bypass operations, basically ran out of plumbing at some point, confined to a wheelchair, and there was nothing more they could do.
Her life was over at age But then, she heard about this guy, Nathan Pritikin, one of our early lifestyle medicine pioneers. Frances Greger arrived in a wheelchair.
Greger had heart disease, angina, and claudication; her condition was so bad she could no longer walk without great pain in her chest and legs. Within three weeks, though she was not only out of her wheelchair but was walking ten miles a day.
That is why I went into medicine. Everything on the website is free. There are no ads, no corporate sponsorships. I just put it up as a public service, as a labor of love.
Where did Pritikin get his evidence from? This landmark article from the 50s started out with a shocking statement: What were they eating? Actually, very similar to those eating modern-day, plant-based diets.
Out of autopsies in Uganda, only one myocardial infarction.
Out of age- and gender-matched autopsies in Missouri, myocardial infarctions: This is a list of diseases commonly found in the U.
If you look at the teeth of people who lived over 10, years before the invention of the toothbrush, they pretty much had no cavities. Look, as long as people understand the consequences of their actions, as a physician, what more can I do? This is another disease that can be prevented by changing our diet.
Now, what are the consequences for you and your family? The most likely reason that most of our loved ones will die is because of heart disease. By age 10, the arteries of nearly all kids raised on the standard American diet already have fatty streaks—the first stage of the disease.Summary.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) can be devastating. Research to date suggests higher blood levels of vitamin D may help prevent AD and recent animal studies indicate high-dose vitamin D supplementation may help treat the disease by reducing the abnormal proteins in the brain that are associated with the disease.

In this “best-of” compilation of his last four year-in-review presentations, Dr. Greger explains what we can do about the #1 cause of death and disability: our diet. Disease Prevention Age-related deterioration of immune function.
The natural age-related decline of the immune function is accompanied by an increased susceptibility to infections, a poorer response to immunization, and higher risks of developing cancers and autoimmune diseases. α-Tocopherol has been shown to enhance specifically the T cell-mediated immune response that declines with.
Aluminum is a neurotoxin, that is, a poison to the brain and nervous system. Some experts have long speculated that this metal plays a role in Alzheimer’s disease, and evidence is steadily mounting that it indeed does.
Fortunately, there’s also evidence that suggests that a number of natural. Results from a new study may lead to approval of what could be the first drug that ameliorates potentially deadly reactions in children with severe peanut allergies.
