Real Doctor Reacts To The Game Changers (Full Movie Documentary)

The Game Changers it’s a new movie
documentary released a few weeks ago in which James Wilks who is a former UFC
champion a fighting champion he gets injured and he sets out on a quest to
determine the optimum diet for human health and performance and along the way
he meets with various scientists and top athletes to determine the best way to
get healthy to perform and to recover so today we’re going to talk about the
movie and the arguments made to see if he indeed found the optimal diet coming
right up hey I’m dr. Ekberg I’m a holistic doctor and a former Olympic
decathlete and if you want to truly master health by understanding how the
body really works make sure that you subscribe and hit that notification bell
so that you don’t miss anything I think that I’m somewhat uniquely qualified in
commenting on this movie because I am a doctor I have extensive training in
physiology in neurology and in nutrition furthermore I have been a vegetarian for
seven years not the last several years but from 1995 to 2002 or so I was a
vegetarian I decided to not continue that because I judged that for me that
was not the best solution but if there’s someone else who feels that way then I’m
not going to judge them or try to convert them into meat eating I’ve also
been an Olympic decathlete so I have performed at that level of athleticism
and I’ve had some success and at that time I was eating meat then after that
career I was like I said a vegetarian for many years and now for the last 15
years or so I have been an omnivore I eat all sorts of things one of the
viewers on my channel Cindy Zhu she saw this movie the game-changers and she was
concerned so she wrote and asked if the movie was indeed true
and could the plant-based diet be an even better alternative than what she
had been doing so far the movie is a very good movie it’s very well produced
it has a lot of names behind it a lot of famous people have invested in the movie
and are listed as co-producers arnold schwarzenegger pamela anderson jackie
chan and so forth James Cameron has produced it directed it so there’s a lot
of famous people involved and as always we tend to confuse Fame with expertise
so as soon as something is well produced and there’s someone is famous behind it
for some reason we think that the the data has more value and we want to
start understanding that that’s not necessarily the case so the movie makes
the argument that a plant-based diet is superior to an animal-based diet in
every way that performance and sex drive and longevity and health everything
about your life gets better if you stop eating meat and you start eating plants
so I’m not opposed to vegans I’m not opposed to vegetarianism but I I do get
a little upset when someone has an agenda and they say that this is the
only way to eat and then they try to scare you with tactics and
misinformation and they they cherry pick certain pieces of information and they
present it in a way that it looks like the truth so I think that there’s lots
of happy people who are vegetarians and there’s lots of happy healthy people who
are omnivores who are meat eaters so we just want to start understanding the
bigger picture so James Wilks sets out on this quest to
find the optimal diet because he is a UFC fighter he’s a champion in the
fighting circle and at the time he was eating meat no less but then when he
gets injured he decides he gets a lot of time on his hands so he wants to find
out what’s the fastest the most productive the most optimal way
to heal and recover so they can get back on his feet
he starts doing some research and interestingly enough being a fighter one
of the things that catches his eyes is one of the original fighters the
gladiator so let’s just take a quick look and see what he has to say about
that. This totally blew my mind the gladiators
were highly priced fighters who got the most advanced training and medical care
in the Roman Empire to think that the original professional fighters ate
mainly plants when against everything I’d been taught about nutrition. The
first argument in the movie is that plant food is superior because the
original fighters gladiators were vegetarian and I’m not going to argue
whether they were or not but I think it’s a bit strong to say that they were
highly prized fighters and that they received the best nutrition and medical
care in the Roman Empire as if the gladiators were prized because you they
respected them and they were highly valued they were valued like animals for
slaughter they just like we feed up cows today whatever it takes to get the cow
as fat as possible by feeding them grain then that’s what they did to the
gladiators not to get them fat that’s not what I mean by that comparison but
the purpose was only to make the gladiator lasts long enough and perform
well enough to last a couple of years as a fighter before he was sacrificed for
the purpose of entertainment so just to refresh my memory I went to the
Wikipedia and looked up gladiators and there I read the following. Gladiators
most were despised as slaves schooled under harsh conditions socially
marginalized and segregated even in death now that doesn’t sound like
someone that they respected and cared about for the value of the person that
was they cared about them because they had entertainment value in the movie
they talk about the gladiators having certain minerals in the bone that
strontium was present and that that’s a sign that’s proof that they were
vegetarians and sure enough that I’m sure that the gladiators had very good
bone quality because human bone gets stronger up to about age 20 that’s when
a human is fully grown and these gladiators they really didn’t live much
longer wikipedia says about life expectancy that george ville using
evidence from first century gladiator headstones calculated an average age at
death of 27 and mortality among all who entered the arena at 19 out of a hundred
so for every hundred people that were into the arena to fight nineteen died
every time for each fight nineteen percent of people died or were executed
or sacrificed so again that doesn’t sound like highly prized to me but even
age twenty seven is probably a high estimate because that was based on
tombstones and most of these people didn’t get tombstones
so Marcus Jumkelman disputes Villes calculation for average age of death he
says the majority would have received no headstone and they would have died early
in their careers at eighteen to twenty five years of age so the average career
of a gladiator was about one to two years that’s the life expectancy so yes
they’re not going to have osteoporosis they’re not gonna have signs of
degeneration they’re going to be young healthy people no matter what you feed
them in one of the physicians that provided that top medical care was
someone a Greek physician called Galen and he was to become arguably the most
accomplished of all medical researchers of antiquity Galen influenced the
development of various scientific disciplines including anatomy physiology
pathology pharmacology and neurology as well as philosophy and logics so Galen
was a very well rounded physician and he part of his training at a gladiator
school in Pergamum where he saw and would later criticize the training, diet,
and long-term health prospects of the gladiators so he criticized the diet and
again you can’t really make an argument that these gladiators were very very
well cared for and that they got they were vegetarians because they felt that
that was the best food available for them at the time next James Wilks meets
up with an ultra marathon runner has been very successful and it’s broken all
sorts of records and he ran the Appalachian Trail faster than anyone had
done before and this person is a vegetarian so James Wilkes asks well how
can a vegetarian generate enough energy for these long endurance races so he
goes to get information from dr. James Loomis. What I found in the locker room
was some pretty outdated ideas about nutrition you would go to a pre game
dinner with the football team and you would see this spread there would be
steak and chicken very much protein oriented because their perception was
that the protein is what sustains their energy but in fact that’s not the case
the actual energy for exercise comes mainly from carbohydrates in the form of
glycogen that we store in our muscles and when we sacrifice those carbohydrate
calories for protein calories in our diet what ends up happening is you will
develop really chronic carbohydrate or glycogen depletion and what does that
lead to well it leads to chronic fatigue and loss of stamina I totally agree with
dr. Loomis that it’s an outdated idea that the athletes had that you would get
your energy from the meat from the protein in the meat but when dr. Loomis
says that carbs are the main source of energy that carbs are the source of fuel
and then he shows a diagram with protein robbing energy from carbohydrates it’s
as if those were the only two macro-nutrients that we have access to. Of course I seem to remember that there is a third one namely fat and
what most people don’t realize even if you eat zero fat which you wouldn’t last
very long but if you ate extremely low fat diet your body your cells still run
at about 50 percent carbohydrate and 50% fat because a lot of your cells function
better on fat and your body can’t store carbohydrate very well so it turns the
carbohydrate into fat and then you burn a mix of carbohydrate and fat so even if
you eat almost zero fat your body is still gonna burn about 50/50 so to have
a graph that depicts that it is carbs and protein that provide the energy
that’s just ridiculous really so if you’re a carb dependent if
you eat mostly carbohydrate and no fats you’re gonna run on about 50 percent
carbs and 50 percent fat however if you are fat adapted then if you’re on a
ketogenic diet then you’re gonna run about five percent carbohydrate and
you’re gonna run about ninety-five percent of your energy coming from fat
now in both of these cases depending on how much protein you eat some of the
excess protein is going to be burned for energy as well so these numbers are not
exact but you get the approximate idea that it’s not energy from carbs or
protein it’s about energy from carbs or fat and that the primary energy source
in the body is fat if you eat a bunch of carbs some of them will be converted to
fat but if you eat mostly fat it will be burned as fat you don’t convert fat into
carbs and his final argument was that if you don’t eat enough carbs you’re going
to deplete your glycogen stores and you’ll end up with chronic fatigue
lack of energy and stamina and the exact opposite is true because what robs you
of stamina is when you are not fat adapted and when you eat enough carbs to
become insulin resistant it’s the insulin resistance that creates the
chronic fatigue not the other way around so there is no mention in this entire
movie about fat as an energy source the only time that fat comes up is when they
mention how bad it is when you have animal fats in the blood they talk about
how it interferes with the circulation and with the endothelium so take a look
at that there’s a direct correlation between a meal and endothelial function
the endothelium is the lining of blood vessels it regulates blood flow
throughout the body it knows that a particular muscle group or organ needs
more blood flow and it dilates it opens up when the endothelium is impaired it
cannot open up it cannot allow blood flow to increase as much and therefore
repairs athletic performance now that looked pretty convincing to me I mean I
get scared when I see those graphics and I see that blood vessel shut down and I
mean it feels like that’s a really bad thing so I went to look at some of the
research and I didn’t have time to look at a bunch of it but I did just sort of
pick one at random to see what it said and I picked one from the American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 2013 it’s listed in in the movie and what
they actually said though is that saturated fatty acids do not impair
endothelial function and arterial stiffness so the research that they
quote says the exact opposite of what they said in the movie now that doesn’t
inspire a whole lot of confidence in me I must say so it says in this study
results for a hundred and twelve participants with data available for
analysis on the specified outcomes no significant
differences were shown and in the conclusion it says the replacement of
saturated fatty acids with multi unsaturated fatty acids or carbohydrates
in healthy subjects does not affect the vascular function so here’s the thing
about research though that in this case the the claims were not even supported
the the research said the exact opposite at least in the one that that I found
I’m sure that there were some positive findings in some of the other research
I’m not disputing that but for every piece of research that says one thing
there is an equally prestigious piece of research that says the opposite that
when you look enough into research it’s almost like a perfect 50/50 split on the
topics and they’re all sort of contradicting each other why is that
because for two reasons people tend to find what they’re looking
for they have an objective when they start the research and they’re more
likely to meet that objective than to not meet it the other thing is that if
you find what you’re looking for you’re really happy and you rush to publish but
if you don’t find what you’re looking for as a researcher then you tend not to
publish and this isn’t just my opinion or theory it turns out about 85 to 90
percent of positive results get published about 85 to 90 percent of
negative results don’t get published so in other words they publish when they
find what they’re looking for and that’s the stuff that we believe is research
and even so they contradict each other so whatever you look whatever you’re
trying to prove with research you can always go out and find a study that
supports what you believe so then after they show us the scary
video of the endothelium collapsing then they actually do some blood tests and then they do put the blood in a centrifuge to separate it and then
they show us what happened. Here’s your blood from today and your blood from
yesterday nice and clear both of them so notice the wording there when he holds
them up he says look nice and clear okay who says clear is nice there is no
evidence there is no proof there’s no suggestion what if cloudy is better
there’s lots of athletes who eat meat and do extremely well with cloudy blood
maybe that’s better but we’re given these presuppositions
that help us make the decision so right after he the chicken fried guy is shown
the vials he says oh that’s pretty gross okay I wouldn’t want that floating in my
blood because he’s been given the impression that that’s a bad thing but
what if cloudy is better okay the research they gave certainly
didn’t support the fact that it had any impact may be cloudy is better and if it
actually is fat in the blood and fat is our primary fuel then maybe that’s a
good thing I don’t know but I’m just saying that what they’re suggesting is
not proof of anything a little later in the movie they ask the question well
what are humans actually supposed to eat what are we biologically physiologically
suited to eat are humans primarily plant eaters or are we better suited to be
meat eaters. Humans do not have any specialized genetic anatomical or
physiological adaptations to meat consumption by contrast we have many
adaptations to plan consumption we have longer digestive tracts then do
carnivores and this allows humans to digest
and fibers that require longer processing time so let’s discuss that
argument she says that humans have no specific
adaptation to eat meat but we have many adaptations to eat plants
well again she’s selecting certain data so there’s probably 50 different
criteria to determine if we’re suited for one or the other but I’m gonna pick
three she picked one and she talked about the length of the digestive tract
so yes humans have a different digestive tract than a lion but we are closer to a
lion much closer to a lion than we are to a cow so if we look at a carnivore a
meat-eater like a lion they have a short relatively short digestive tract small
intestine they have a very low pH meaning they make a tremendous amount of
hydrochloric acid the pH is between one and three in most carnivores their teeth
are sharp to allow shredding of meat and they don’t have any flat teeth to grind
down vegetables and plants plant either an herbivore like a cow or a rabbit or
an antelope they have a very different digestive tract they have a very long
digestive tract very complicated digestive tract it really has nothing in
common with a human or a lion because they have mostly have stomachs with
bacteria that digest the food for them they have multiple stomachs with
bacteria and humans and lions have none so it’s a very long and complicated and
different very different their pH is high they have very little hydrochloric
acid because there is no animal protein to break down and digest and their teeth
are flat to allow the grinding of grass and plant products so where do humans
fall when humans are omnivores that means we can eat a little bit of
everything carnivores have developed primarily in
areas where there is plenty of meat to eat herbivores have developed they live
in areas where there’s plenty of plants but humans as you know they have spread
out over the planet and there’s some people that eat primarily meat there’s
some people that eat primarily plants there’s some people that eat primarily
fish some eat primarily fruit and they all do relatively well because we are
omnivores we have the length of our digestive tract is medium it is longer
than the lion but it looks nothing like a cow we also have a stomach that is
very very similar the first part of digestion where we break down protein is
almost identical to a lion it is a a small bowl that receives the food that
produces tremendous amounts of hydrochloric acid we have the same pH
between 1 and 3 as a lion or most carnivores do if we look at the teeth
human teeth are sharp in the front and flat in the back so that we can do both
we don’t have one or the other we have both which means that we are suited to
eat all kinds of different food there’s probably no one alive that hasn’t heard
that you’re supposed to eat more fruits and vegetables and I’m not gonna argue
with that I would say eat more vegetables and fruits if your insulin
resistant then eat and very little fruit but we hear this eat more
vegetables and fruit eat more vegetables and fruit it’s like a mantra and the
main reason the primary argument is that it is full of vitamins, minerals, and
anti-oxidants. So let’s see what they have to say about that the antioxidants
dr. Stahl was talking about I found almost entirely in plants which have on
average 64 times the antioxidant content of animal foods even iceberg lettuce has
more antioxidants than salmon or eggs as a result
switching to a plant-based diet can help reduce measures of inflammation by 29
percent in just three weeks. So if we have bought into the idea of
antioxidants then that sounds like a compelling argument like wow sixty-four
times more antioxidants like 64 times more of the good stuff even iceberg
lettuce that’s just like water has more antioxidants than salmon so why would
you want to eat salmon if it doesn’t have any antioxidants? So all of this is
part of a big myth the first thing is that what antioxidants are and who
they’re good for so plants make antioxidants to protect plants they
don’t have any higher ulterior motive they don’t sit around in the soil and
say oh I bet there’s some human that’s going to come and eat me later I think
I’m gonna make some antioxidants so that human can get healthy. No, plants make
antioxidants to protect plants okay humans do the same thing humans make
antioxidants for humans. Inside our own cells we make something called
glutathione and that is the primary and the only antioxidants that really matter
in humans and guess what it doesn’t come from a plant it is made up from three
amino acids that called glycine glutamine and cysteine and amino acids
of course are protein so there’s nothing magical about antioxidants in plants
because they’re made for plants. Humans make glutathione which is by far the
dominant it provides the vast majority of antioxidant function in the human
body and we make it ourselves from amino acids which come from proteins
another thing most people don’t realize about antioxidants is the very name
antioxidant why do we what does that mean it’s against oxygen that’s what it
means why do we have oxygen why do we breathe because we breathe in oxygen so
that we can oxidize the fuel the protein carbohydrates and fat and turn them into
energy that’s how humans make energy it’s from fuel that we oxidize with
oxygen when you take an antioxidant you interfere with that energy production so
don’t worry if you just eat a normal food if you just eat plenty of
vegetables and even fruit if you’re not insulin resistant then you’re not gonna
get any damaging amounts of antioxidants but if you eat that plus you take a
bunch of supplements of alpha lipoic acid and mega doses of vitamin A and C
and E now you’re actually shortening your lifespan you are interfering with
the energy production you’re preventing your body from producing the energy that
it needs to have so if you’re not sure about how important that oxygen is for
energy production then just hold your breath for a few minutes and see how
eager you are to get some more oxygen in you and then realize that the more
synthetic antioxidant supplements that you take the more you’re interfering so
that those supplements are more like suffocation therapy than than anything
else probably the most common argument though for carbohydrates not just for
plants in general but for carbohydrates is that we need blood glucose and that
the brain can only run on sugar let’s see what they have to say about that. “We
have a brain that just is desperate for glucose it I mean it’s such a fussy
organ that’s the only thing it really takes in for energy
well meats not a very good source of glucose. To have a big brain like this you
need to eat something different and the most efficient way to get glucose is to
eat carbohydrates.” Brain is desperate for glucose it’s such a fussy organ and
protein is not a great source all of those three things are just wrong
because the body uses whatever fuel is available and I agree protein by itself
is not the best fuel but if need be the body can make glucose from protein the
brain is pretty fussy because it doesn’t eat protein it uses glucose and it
doesn’t use fat per se but in the absence of glucose the brain will run on
as much as 75% ketones and ketones is a byproduct of fat metabolism so to say
that the brain only runs on glucose is just plain wrong and when he says that
the brain when you have a big brain that the best way to fuel it is to eat lots
of carbohydrates that is just not true because carbohydrates especially
processed carbohydrates but carbohydrates in general what they do is
they create blood sugar spikes they do indeed raise blood sugar and provide
fuel for the brain but it produces too high a level it produces spikes and then
when you have a spike it’s going to come down so now you have a blood sugar
roller coaster and over time you can also get hypoglycemia on the bottom end
of it and with continued carb consumption you develop insulin
resistance and this is not a mystery anymore 85, 87 % of the world is
overweight of the Western world is overweight and that is because of
insulin resistance and what happens to the brain that he argues that the brain
loves that glucose well when you get insulin resistant then you also get an
insulin resistant brain that is why they now call dementia type 3
diabetes okay carbohydrates is not the preferred fuel it is one of two fuels it
is a good fuel if we can provide it in a stable manner the carbohydrates don’t
provide it in a stable manner it provides it in a rollercoaster manner
and the brain doesn’t like that at all another pretty tragic thing is in a
movie like this when they’re talking about athletes about ultimate fighting
champions about boxers about football players these are people in contact
sports these are people who hit their head on a regular basis and even if they
wear helmets which some of them don’t then the brain is very soft and it’s
inside a very hard shell and when you get hit even if the helmet prevents the
skull from cracking the brain is bouncing around and hitting up against
the inside of the bone creating traumatic brain injuries micro traumas
all day long and the brain has a very limited ability to repair it’s encased
in bone for the very reason that it’s supposed to be protected it’s delicate
and when it’s not supposed to get injured it has a very poor ability to
clean up and regenerate and the best hope the brain has of regenerating is
called autophagy and autophagy happens in the absence of insulin and
carbohydrate so if you get hit in the head on a regular basis and you eat a
high carbohydrate diet you’re really setting yourself up for some long-term
neurological damage so especially the people who get hit in the head they
should do a keto diet and they should work with intermittent fasting because
that autophagy is their best hope of preventing brain degeneration a couple
of more things that they mentioned in the movie is protein that they say that
it’s a myth that meat has a higher quality protein that all that matters
is the presence of the essential amino acids in the food itself and that’s
simply not true they are correct in that plant food has lots of protein but it’s
not in the same proportion and it isn’t as bioavailable it is not absorbed and
utilized to the same degree to the same percentage that animal food is and they
also talk about iron heme iron meaning iron from muscle or blood and they say
that that’s associated with increased inflammation and increased heart disease
again they’re picking pieces isolated pieces of information they don’t know
what else that person ate okay it could have been all the sugar or all the trans
fats or all the bread that they had with it but iron availability is a huge deal
and heme iron is much more available so there is 2 billion people in the world
up to 2 billion people who are anemic and anemia is one of the worst diseases
that you can have anemia means that you don’t have enough iron you don’t have
enough hemoglobin in your red blood cells to capture and transport the
oxygen to your cells so it’s like you’re always starving for oxygen everything in
your body runs on 70 to 80 percent because it’s not getting the fuel and
that’s up to 2 billion people and guess what most of those people are primarily
vegetarian because the iron in the plants are not as available as a matter
of fact they’ve checked and 2/3 of the iron in the human body comes from heme
iron from blood or muscle even though that’s only one third of the iron
ingested so we can eat tons of spinach and plant food that has iron but it
doesn’t mean that we’re actually going to absorb and utilize it and the same
thing holds true for the protein that the bioavailability how much of it
that we absorb and utilize is not the same we don’t absorb as much from plants
as we do from animals so there’s a lot of people who can do well on plant food
and I congratulate them and I applaud them and I respect and support them but
there’s also a large number of people who after several years of being a
vegetarian get very sick because they can’t absorb the iron and the protein
and the appropriate amino acids as a clinician you see a lot of difficult
cases we see a lot of vegetarians we see a lot of examples so it doesn’t mean
that meat or plant food is good or bad but you got to figure out what works for
you and if something works for you don’t try to push that on someone else and say
that this is better for you and then toward the later part of the movie they
bring up a very very serious problem that I totally agree with them except
they’re drawing the wrong conclusions from it this is regarding the
environment and the deforestation and how much water is used the wrong way
let’s take a look. About three-quarters of all the agricultural land in the
world is used for livestock production and it imposes a huge cost on
biodiversity and what is the single biggest source of habitat destruction
it’s the livestock sector meat dairy egg and fish farming use 83
percent of the world’s farmland yet provide only 18% of the world’s calories. So this is the real big problem that we face that the way that we produce food
has gotten totally out of control but it’s so easy to blame to try to find
a scapegoat and in this movie they say oh look it’s the meat eaters they are
the problem but it’s not it’s the way that we are producing food overall it’s
not the the meat eaters it’s not the cows fault it’s the industrialization of
Agriculture it’s the industrialization is the mass scaling of food production
that’s the problem the soil depletion and the runoff and the pollution and all
the garbage ending up in the rivers it’s not about the meat or not it’s about the
fact that we use mass farming we use synthetic fertilizers chemical
fertilizers and we don’t rotate crops we don’t respect nature we don’t treat we
don’t do anything in balance with nature and it doesn’t matter if you grow plants
for themselves or if you grow plants to feed to animals it’s just the wrong
model okay it’s not that we need to stop eating meat it is that we need to change
how we produce food overall and so often we hear the argument that oh well we
need GMOs to feed the world’s population we need those mass farms we need the
chemical fertilizers and that is one big lie it’s a huge fallacy and I looked
into that just a little bit and I thought to myself that well you know
there are small farms that I know of farms that produce tremendous amounts of
food and they are using the resources of nature they’re doing everything
sustainably and environmentally and they rotate and they can keep this going
forever so I thought let’s
see how many percent how much of the world’s food is actually produced on
small farms because we get the impression that almost all the food
comes from these mega farms alright so I expected to see that maybe a few percent
that maybe 2 percent of the world’s food comes from small farms and then I was
preparing the argument to say that well you know if 2 percent comes from small
farms let’s just multiply those farms 50 times and we can have a hundred percent
of the food supply ok I thought that would be reasonable but it totally blew
me away I had absolutely no idea how much of the world’s food comes from
small farms it turns out more than 70% of the entire production of food in the
world comes from farms less than 25 acres the large farms only supply 30
percent of the food so it’s not even a big transition the only reason that we
have ended up with these mass production farms is for commercial interests for
the convenience of automation and for government subsidies ok and if we really
want to go back to producing food in a natural way we can produce vegetables
and meat in abundance on the areas that the world provides and even meat can be
produced sustainably and one great example is a place called Polyface farm
in Virginia there’s the farmer it’s a family farm farmer named Joel Salatin
and he has been farming there for over 50 years and for the last 50 years I
don’t know if he himself has done it for that long but for the last 50 years they
have not introduced they have not bought any chemical fertilizers they have not
planted any seeds they do not own a plow or a silo they have 500 acres
and out of those 500 acres they have a hundred acres open for grazing where
they feed their animals 400 acres is still forest so on that hundred acres
they produce naturally 300 percent more meat than a commercial farm okay using
product modern production methods the way that we are taught the way we’re
made to believe that it’s the only way to feed the world through chemicals and
and mass production well he’s doing it naturally and he is producing 300
percent more food per acre and he doesn’t add anything it just lets nature
take care of it he rotates the crop he moves the fields around he moves the
cattle around and it happens the way it’s supposed to I think the movie
succeeds in showing that there’s a really good chance that you can be
healthy and you can have a very productive long life if you choose to be
a vegetarian or a vegan I think the movie completely fails to prove its
arguments that the plant-based food would be superior I think all of their
arguments are hollow I think they have gathered their information by picking
and choosing which anybody can do to support their point of view I think they
have backed themselves with a lot of famous people and influential people and
that we confuse that with the truth with expertise so again learn as much as you
can about the principles about the physiology and I wanted to make this
movie because when my viewer asked me and I started looking into the movie I
saw it as a threat because the biggest problem that we have is insulin
resistance and if people stopped eating animal food and they start eating
predominantly plant-based food and the way not that you can’t eat a low carb
diet on plant food but the way the movie promotes it is to
eat a high carbohydrate food to fuel your activity and fuel your brain and
what you’re going to fuel that way is insulin resistance and if you are very
insulin sensitive and you eat this way you can probably do that and live very
well for very long but if you are insulin resistant like almost 90 percent
of the population then you are not going to be able to reverse that insulin
resistance by eating the way they suggest so I wanted to really clarify
things in this comment so that people feel assured and feel safe that yes it
is okay to eat an omnivorous diet you can eat a little bit of everything I don’t
think you should necessarily over do one or the other figure out what works best
for you I would also urge you to buy the best quality food that you can I know
that some people don’t feel that they can afford it but if you can spend a few
extra dollars then support the movement toward healthier food the organic and
the grass-fed and the local and the sustainable because that is the future
of food production and the more you support it the more it’s going to grow I
don’t think a lion is unethical because it eats an antelope and I don’t think
humans are unethical because we eat meat I think it’s unethical to raise animals
the way that we do in mass farms I think an animal is entitled to a life in the
environment that it’s designed for and then I think it’s perfectly ethical to
eat that animal just like the lion eats the antelope but we need to respect them
just like the American Indians respected the Buffalo they used everything from
that animal I hope this was helpful and if you enjoyed this movie then I’m sure
you’re gonna love that one

Bad science brought the food pyramid. See Dr Attia's analysis of this film too; Dr. Sten Ekberg
The food pyramid brought us epidemic obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke, brain disorders, ad infinitum.
Now vegans angrily push this bad science like religious zealots. We don't learn from history.
And I was a vegetarian for 19 years. I had to study 2 years before I reluctantly accepted that that's how I got metabolic syndrome. Now I eat HFLC and IF.

You hear that atheists?!
Which is why I take any 'science' (with their 'peer review and diary scribble ' i mean 'journal entry') that I can't do myself or follow the logic on, with less than a grain of salt! Science has just as much ability to be corrupted as religion, and that's before money is involved, and lord how money is involved! When your funding is on the line, it's not in your best interest to come back with 'i donno!'
Put it to you like this, the usa government has 'checks and balances', does that mean it's free from corruption?! How about this, McDonalds has scientific proof that their food doesn't cause the health problems they obviously do. What's not said is that McDonalds bank rolled the 'scientific research' that happen to give a result that's favorable to them!

Many Indians are vegetarians for past 2500 years. They are doing fine. There are castes that are vegetarians for religious reasons. In fact these castes are way up on educational and economic attainment scale. Many ended up in silicon valley after their graduation in US unis and became very rich. Many nobel winners from India were vegetarians. But yes many vegetarian women in India tend to have iron deficiency. And sometimes getting adequate protein can be challenge if you don't eat properly. But most Indians do consume dairy products. Hardly any pure plant only vegans.

Last…he talked about animal fat for fuel. It’s already been proven that animal fat clogs arteries. Everyone I know on a high fat diet (keto) after a few month had to stop because of cholesterol issues. Again specifics…we don’t know what they ate and he didn’t specify what you should and shouldn’t be eating on a high fat diet. He also never said how much plant base diets the brain absorbs he only mentioned 75% on absorption with animal fat. If it’s 100% with plant …I’d rather eat plants!

A not well educated doctor like so many. Doctors in these time do know how to treat symptoms. Doctors are educated and supported by big pharma companies who sell "medicine"… what is actually just symptom reduction … no sickness = no money… food is the most important medicine not medication! I've worked in a hospital for 3 years… Medical institutions give people still the same old fashioned "bad' food that western society has grown up with.

It's such a confusing time with the food and fitness community, people are fighting for a belief rather than actual science, why is it so controversial now about food and health? As if the media is deliberately creating this mass confusion about health and fitness, how do random people take this information? People who are trying to lose weight or people who are fighting some sort of disease, or athletes? This is a great responsibility, and no one seems to honor it! I have never seen a more confusing and controversial issue in my life, it's now becoming a fight for corporations that make money out of this, just mass propaganda, plant based vs carnivore vs keto vs water diet!

What frustrates me about all of this is that simple and complex carbs are not differentiated. Simple carbs on any diet are bad both vegan and meat. Personally I believe we should be plant based… Not vegan but plant based. We eat way too much meat in western diets. High quality Meat once or twice a week is fine… Everyday I have my doubts. Lots of veg, complex carbs ( preferably no gluten) and meat occasionally and I'm pretty confident most people would be super healthy

I'm not sure why, but it seems that the term "Fat Ada___ted" is not allowed on here as a term and the post gets removed. I just wanted to point out that that is not an actual medical term and I've never heard or read 'anywhere' in the 3 decades I've read about nutrition that the human body runs on fats/carbs 50/50. I would like to see medical research that backs this up.

Whole food carbohydrates DO NOT cause insulin resistance. In fact, if you actually look at the scientific evidence, a low fat whole food plant based diet IMPROVES insulin sensitivity. I'm an exercise physiologist, diabetes educator and someone actually living with type 1 diabetes. But don't just take my word for it, look it up for yourself. You should probably consider making a new video apologising to everyone about the nonsense you just uttered in regards to insulin resistance. Wow.

It would be great if this video also covered the "Vegan Week" experiment they ran with the firefighters' group. After a week of eating vegan, their cholesterol dropped, they lost weight and improved blood pressure. I'm a bit confused by cholesterol though, while it's not as effective as CAC scan, it's still an informative marker and the fact that it dropped so fast is definitely a good thing.

Very good video. Could have touched on many more fallacies in the movie I'm sure. E.g., for more depth in the antioxidant discussion, while glutathione is our master antioxidant, other important antioxidants such as vitamins A, E, and K, come primarily from animal sources. And another, vitamin D, is manufactured in our bodies from cholesterol, mostly of animal origin. So the salmon and eggs, being good sources of these are FAR better providers of antioxidants than most vegetables. What the movie was measuring was probably polyphenolic antioxidants, which show a lot of activity in vitro, but very little after digestion in vivo.

Nutrition was always a disputed topic since modern science started to do studies about it. Every decade a new paradigm is found or is reinstated. Health insurance and the state have a huge interest in the bodies of the population. Yet, there were always other interests behind every push – some of them not so easily to grasp, but always linked to money. Now, Vegetarianism and much more so, Veganism have the tendency to become belief systems. Yet, overconsumption is a global problem, just as sustainability is one. But these things shouldn't be confused. The newest push will try to invent some basic staple food for everyone, and some better but expensive foods for the upper echelons of the society. Like in old times: meat is for the lords, porridge and greens is for the poor. It's interesting that the movie is talking about history, but then only with a very narrow view and without fact checking.

To all the Ryan Lowery's, to all the Shawn Bakers, to all the Joe Rogans of the world, What The Health!?, The Game Changers, PlantPure Nation, Let Us be Hero's, one after the other showing you why you should embrace a whole foods plant based diet, however, this has become nothing but a war of conceptual information in order to sustain a pointless argument of which has no purpose other than to argue.

To the nay sayers of the world, we say to you, don't take our words for it anymore, don't take the documentaries words for it anymore, challenge yourself to cut out animal products for 30 days and only consume whole foods plant based products and see how you feel for yourself.

Numbers do not lie and you will see the proof for yourself. The most important thing you will know and understand of which can never be removed from your being is, how you feel. You will always remember how you feel. This is the most important, because, conceptual information has it's place in this world, however, it will never be a substitute for felt understanding.

Challenge yourself to a whole foods plant based diet as described by PlantPure Nation and see how you feel after 30 days for yourself.

I respect your position, but you have made some material misrepresentations about the film. First, at no time did the film make any assertion that because the film was produced by famous people that those famous people were experts. The film relied on the "evidence" provided by blood work that not even you can refute. You know and must agree that animal consumption causes fat in the blood and is measurable, which is NOT debatable. The blood tests taken during the movie prove that fact 100%. So your dig about who the producers are is not relevant. Second, the movie did NOT make the "argument" that a "plant-based diet" is superior in every way". What the movie did was provide the EVIDENCE based on testing that showed what happen when someone eats animal food and it gave testimonies of people who performed better once they made the change. Both scientific evidence and "testimonial evidence" with additional evidence of the performance of those individuals "before and after" is NOT argument, it is evidence of FACTS/TRUTH that cannot be disproved. I am a lawyer, and arguments can be disproved – because they are not supported by 100% irrefutable evidence. In this case, the movie provided "irrefutable evidence' that is a FACT or TRUTh that NO ONE can Change. In law, that means it is a "law" that the consumption of animal food WILL cause animal fat build up in the blood. That LAW is unchangeable. A "theory" is when there is NOT irrefutable evidence to establish the theory, a law is 100% irrefutable and repeatable every time. So, you claim that you are "upset" about them disclosing the Law of animal eating is displaced as a doctor. That law is law you know as a fact and your failure to point that out is dishonest. Thirdly, at no time did ANYONE in the film make the statement that "everything in your life gets better when you start eating plants". Your claim that the movie made that suggestion is flat our wrong and a material misrepresentation about the film. I have been vegan since 1985, except for the 4 years when I was in college and did not know how to eat vegan on a cafeteria diet, so I was a lacto ovo vegetarian and intermitant flexitarian because I can recall using "turkey burger" maybe 5 times in 4 years. I was ignorant at that time, but since that time I have been 100% plant-based for health reasons and for religious reasons as I became a Seventh-Day Adventist in law school, and the SDA church, which is the only Protestant church in the world that has taught that plant-based diet is God's superior diet based on the Bible verse Gen 1:29, and even they do NOT tell their members that being plant-based makes "everything in your life better". If a religious group who is the leading group in the world in the plant-based movement with almost 30 million members around the world does not make that claim, then why would anyone else. The point being is that the film NEVER made the suggestion that "everything in a persons life gets better when they eat plant-base". The film story teller throughout the film was focused on how a plant-based diet impacted athletic performance and injury recovery. While the film provided evidence that male genital errection was substantially improved by consuming a plant-based diet, that was established by the blood work of the individuals who the test was performed on. That blood work can not be debated nor changed by anyone. So, there was not falsehood presented in the film on that point. I am an ethical and "honest" trial lawyer, and I say that because regretfully, there are a many dishonest lawyers who use their power to lie, cheat and steal and we see to many of them in mainstream news. But as an honest lawyers, I would have to say that your arguments to challenge the credibility of the film is unfair because you make representations about the film that are simply not true. As a doctor, you have taken an oath to honesty. Please update your video and provide corrections about statements you made that are incorrect. I could go on and on about your many mistakes, but I will not. I just want you to go back and provide corrections. As a former medical malpractice defense lawyer (I defended doctors) I would strongly recommend that you consider the impact of your incorrect assertions on your career. We as professionals must care about the credibility of our profession and do all to protect our professions from corruption. While I believe that corruption in the legal profession is out of control, which is why I now am a social justice advocate fighting for criminal justice reform to hold the system accountable, I believe their is way more hope for the medical profession to make the appropriate adjustment so that it does not get a corrupt as parts of the legal system. Be the change you want to see!

Love your video, but Joel Salatin (have most of his books & the video, and we raise meat & produce too) has grain crops hauled in to feed the chickens & pigs. Seed-planted crops ARE a huge part of his farming. It adds to the growth of the hay big time. Our lawn grows earliest & greenest where we run the broiler chicken pasture pen in our front yard each year. He does try to feed only none-GMO. His cows don’t get grains, and the pigs get to forage a lot, but he’s not a true no-till no seed farmer. He just depends on other farmers to till for him, as we do. I do want to grow our own chicken grains, but not sure if it’s worth our time to grow all we need. Time is money! And we’re pretty new at farming compared to most grain farmers who’ve been in generations long farming operations.

We also wonder if the only way to stay strong after switching to vegan is to exercise at a professional athlete level. 10 years was the longest any of them was vegan, from 50 yrs old to 60. Omnivore-built strength. It can take more than 10 years for some malnutrition to be obvious. Show me a bunch of 60 year vegan 60 year old athletes. Regarding his father, I’ve heard that short term vegan diet does help cancer patients a lot, but long-term they cannot stay vegan. Its only overall helpful if termporary veganism.
