    Great job as usual. Very informative and very important. A couple of things which are on my mind. I share your videos on facebook and I don't think a single person who is in my circle actually watches them and some of these folks really need to take your advice. I find it disappointing that so many people WANT to drive their Ferrari (their body) right off the cliff and into an abyss. I fear that a multigenerational approach to fixing our dietary problems will end up like the multigenerational war on poverty. Sure it helped some but most just got stuck in a a rut and left behind. Our health care crisis is at absolute critical levels and people are absolutely convinced they can't live without meat even though they spend thousands and thousands on doctors, medications, and operations in the hope to live a little longer. The solution is obvious and everybody knows it. Just don't eat animal products. It isn't that hard to figure out.

    The solution to this problem of animal product versus plant product is to create plant-based cheese and meat and to market them well so that they are ingrained in culture. This happened with butter. Butter is an animal product. But then along came margarine, which looks similar but is arguably healthier and more convenient because it can be spread more easily. Now just about everyone uses margarine. If the same thing can happen to meat and cheese, that would be a win. The meat and cheese replacement, I feel, needs to be soy free since there is a great fear of soy. This plant based meat and cheese also needs to be high in plant proteins and be fortified with vitamin B12.

    Does just reducing meat consumption lead to a longer lifespan?

    Delicious salads, cooked greens, various yummy mezzes and rice dishes, small amounts of oil- and maybe meat if you must a couple of times a year. BUt then you are so used to eating whole plant based you simply will not want nor need meat.

    I love your show, but am not interested in long life.

    Please give me my BACON, Heavy CREAM, BUTTER, Ice Cream, Steak, raw hot dogs, etc – I'll happily take the shorter life.

    Public policy?  Sounds like moose kakes in the white mosque as the head of the food police.  No thank you.

    I guess i shouldnt feel so guilty for being a flexitarian. I eat a 90%-95% plant-based diet. I know the ethical issues, but it is what works for me right now.

    Just FYI, it is so much less expensive to eat a Whole Foods Plant Based diet (rather than the Standard American Diet)!  And as this video shows, switching to this style of eating not only provides longer life but also will give us better quality of life (less illness!!!).  It's all win-win and with the terrific recipes that are now available for eating this way, there's no excuse not to give it a whirl.

    Do Flexitarians Live Longer? by Dr. Greger

    1. Vegetarians don't live longer than meat eaters! Vegetarians in the USA live longer than meat eaters in the USA, perhaps because of hormones and antibiotics in the meat… Numerous studies in the UK were done and your statement is simply not true.
    2. Okinawans are the ones that have the longest lifespan, not Cali vegetarians.
    3. Mediterranean diet is not primarily plant-based! Some countries consume excessive amounts of chicken, pork, lamb, fish, seafood, and so on. Also they consume a lot of fat!
    4. More fruit in the Mediterranean diet? Actually, primarily vegetables and breads!
    5. Western diet is not simply meat-based diet! It is primarily processed carb diet! Try eating low carb diet in the USA and we can then talk again!
    … I am sure that there are many more unsupported claims in this video but don't really care to hear what you have to lie about

    You're telling me that eating only three times a week can reduce diseases so much it becomes almost undetectable in studies?
    In a video once I saw that eating 2 days a week would eliminate the environmental problems we face because of agriculture.

    Loma Linda Blue Zone is by far not the longest living Blue Zone in the world, on average! With a blatant lie like this, you have to question what agenda this person has, where the money sponsoring him comes from, and what other blatant lies he's spitting out on his videos? Cherry picking selective scientific reports is not science at all!

    Eat more plants. Spare animals, repair the environment, and live longer.

    Then please tell me this, do you think that taking a B-12 supplement to get this vitamin that you need is a natural thing to do?

    Are the adventists vegetarian or vegan? If they live the longest and are vegetarian, meaning they eat eggs and dairy, whats up with that?

    You may “save hundreds of thousands of Americans every year” Dr Greger
    But eventually those “hundreds of thousands” will die anyway.

    Even though you may avoid heart disease, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, etc. for a time, death still ceases to exist
    More people on the earth means more resources used and climate change will worsen meaning certain earlier death for mankind
    Mankind’s fanciful greeds will eventually catch up to him
