    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. And check out the other videos on obesity. Also, there are 1,449 other subjects covered in the rest of my videos–please feel free to explore them as well!

  • It is a big problem in the UK too. The obese waddle around shopping centres heading for the fast food outlets. And it isn’t just the choice of diet, it is the sheer quantity consumed. Portion control has to play a part in this as well as changing to a predominantly plant based diet.

    There are foods you can eat in unlimited quantities and not gain weight. I eat two to three times more food now then when I was 80 pounds heavier. Quantity is self regulated when you eat the right foods.

    Please name the microorganisms that are on the pancreas and destroy it slowly resulting insufficiency of insulin then diabetes.

    Please name the types of the microorganism ovules that:

    1) are collected after the glomerular process and resulting lithiasis (so called kidney calculi that become one stone in the end)
    2) become tonsillar stones
    3) become salivary duct calculus
    4) resulting rhinoliths (calculi in the nasal cavity)
    5) resulting enteroliths (Calculi in the gastrointestinal tract)

    Please name the types of the microorganism of which excrements or fluids (under cold condition) do nervous system inflammation in so called ‘’rheumatism’’ just for ignorant people.

    Please consult a pathologist too, easy job. Man, Thank you a lot ;)
