    IT'S VERY DISTURBING TO HAVE THE VIDEO INTERRUPTED AND TO HAVE TO CLICK ON A LINK TO GO TO ANOTHER PAGE. AND ESPECIALLY WHEN I LIVE IN A PLACE WHERE THE INTERNET IS USUALLY SLOW.
    AND NOW IT'S SUPER SLOW AFTER THE DEVASTATION OF HURRICANE MARÍA.
    IN OTHER WORDS, IT'S NOT A GOOD IDEA TO DO THAT TO YOUR SPECTATORS, THINK ABOUT IT AND FIX IT.

    If you go whole food plant base you may have many reasons. I'm not really sure how someone can separate the compassion part for animals when you drastically change your diet and really think about where your food is coming from. I still have leather boots I paid too much for. It's my last non vegan item. Still can't call myself a Vegan wearing those. But the diet has changed me in many positive ways. But I usually keep it to myself unless someone asks. When you live in Texas you see the catastrophe the American Standard diet is.

    Vegans need to raise tolerance toward alternative humanitarian approaches to animals. Case-in-point: I am plant-based, not vegan. I believe that animals serve a purpose to "exploit" as long as it is done in a humane and pain-free way (e.g., free range, comfort-based accommodations, sans steroids and drugs). And I do not draw a line between living creatures, like vegans do, since they believe that it is ok to kill and eat other living organisms such as broccoli, lettuce, legumes, etc. etc. which require dying in order to be harvested and provide sustenance for people.

    Absolutely! Dr. Greger right on the money as always. Veganism doesn't really explain the constituents of a particular diet. Secondly, on top of being an emotionally charged topic, veganism is an all or nothing strategy that it prevents people from considering any meaningful change. A plant based diet can be considered by anyone. Whatever else you eat, eat more plants! That was anyway how most cultures ate not that long ago.

    why are people in the comments talking as if they were nutrition experts or as if they actually knew something about diet omg! the man talking in the video is a doctor, therefore he's going to be telling you what's the best for your HEALTH! if you want some spiritual speach about loving each other go see a monk and go to your demonstrations to tell people how much you love to "fight" against animal cruelty.

    Base. Verb. "Have as the foundation for (something); use as a point from which (something) can develop."

    If your diet is plant "based", it's not strictly plants. It is incorrect and disingenuous to claim the diet Greger promulgates is plant "based".

    I am vegan and dang proud to tell people. I will not apologize for being vegan. Alas, most of these doctors are not vegan so calling themselves plant-based is appropriate. There are only a few vegan doctors that I know of and they are Dr. Michael Klaper, M.D, Dr. Neal Barnard, M.D., These two doctors were/are speaking against animal testing and fighting for the rights of animals. And it is those two doctors who have my full respect. Do I appreciate the converts being won over by Greger, Esselstyn, and co.? Yes, absolutely. Just don't call yourself vegan unless you fully understand the word. And Barnard and Klapper do understand. They do not wear wool, or leather, or silk while I suspect Greger probably does wear wool suits.

    The point isn't necessarily that MEAT is strictly bad for you. It's that processed meat – the majority of meat type that is produced today – is bad for you. Of course meat is good for you in some ways in principle, but it's very hard to come by these days.

    Veganism vs plant based explained: (…feel free to take a shot every time I use the v word) 😉
    For vegans, veganism is about the animals, not vegans.
    For plant based people, it's about them and their health. They eat plants and exploit animals outside of their diet. Not vegan.
    For plant based people and non vegans, veganism is often viewed as an identity. It's not.
    For vegan posers, it's about identity. '*I'm* a vegan, me this, *me that' me me me. 'Hey I'm vegan' (and probably latch onto other labels to be seen as something special and unique) This is where that joke comes from.

    With that being said, Veganism is actually a movement for animal liberation. Don't be confused or get caught up in plant based nonsense.
