    Please feel free to post any ask-the-doctor type questions here in the comments section and I’d be happy to try to answer them. There are 1,449 other subjects covered in the rest of my videos–please feel free to explore them as well!

      What do they mean when they say “ladies of quality”?

    There is obviously a lot of disgusting research going on and getting published. I had no idea there was a “Journal of Muscle”. I feel sad for all the animals that were tested on for such seemingly pathetic uses. Really, I thought paid research had to go through ethical review boards to focus on reducing the number of animals, finding a replacement (non-animal), and refinement (to find ways to reduce suffering and harm to the animal research subjects), referred to as the 3 Rs in research.

  • I hope the horse meat study took into account that most horses raised in the US are not raised under food safety guidelines and are therefore given many substances which are banned from use in ANY animal intended for human consumption.

    An August 19 article by Dr. Mercola states ” a healthier alternative to vegetable oils are saturated fats from animals and vegetables … your body cannot function without saturated fat.” This is the exact opposite to what you claim in your articles and videos.

    • Alex Gewecke

      Yeah but Dr. Mercola also profits off of selling lots of stuff that is questionable. Dr. Greger doesn’t profit off of the stuff he sells.

    As a new vegan dieter I can not avoid the issue with flatulence, even with the use of charcoal capsules or ginger/peppermint tea
    How do I put out the fire of my farts out forever short of dying to stop the smell from down below?

      Danrich: Congrats on healthy eating! As for the problem with flatulence, have you seen the following article from NutrtionFacts? : That article has some ideas that might help.
      Also note that lots of people report that while they may have gas on their new diet, they notice distinctly less smell on the gas after they have gone through an adjustment period. You hopefully will have that to look forward to also.
      Good luck and let us know how it goes.
