Take a pill and continue eating junk. Perhaps we are better off living up to 40s to hasten the evolution. Reply tamcon72 says: August 12, 2016 at 12:29 pm So glad you are addressing this again, as T Colin Campbell is being dismissed as a King Lear figure, yelling into the wilderness on this topic. This valid call for a more comprehensive paradigm of nutrition recommendation needs to gain traction. Thanks for posting. Reply Jacob Saunders says: August 12, 2016 at 12:31 pm I really like your videos, but a little more enthusiasm in your voice wouldn't be a bad thing 😁😅 Reply ExploringAustraliaDuo says: August 12, 2016 at 12:32 pm Thanks dr Greger! Reply Praise The Masculine Flames says: August 12, 2016 at 12:33 pm what about vitamin d? you have said sun isn't enough Reply TheAltruismActivist says: August 12, 2016 at 1:26 pm We need to generate some serious funding for the broccoli and blueberry industry …. Reply Anna S. says: August 12, 2016 at 1:31 pm Read T. Colin Campbell's book Whole for an in depth explanation of this. Reply Dexter Williams says: August 12, 2016 at 1:36 pm 太谢谢了! Reply Scut Farkus says: August 12, 2016 at 1:38 pm Videos like this are important. Hopefully, it will lead to a paradigm shift in due course. Reply Raw Intuition says: August 12, 2016 at 1:42 pm lol the active ingredient in broccoli is…broccoli… Reply zukodude487987 says: August 12, 2016 at 1:48 pm Got broccooi? Reply _gongster says: August 12, 2016 at 2:02 pm Loooool Greger loves broccoli too much. Ahaha Reply Savage says: August 12, 2016 at 2:04 pm "Brocoberry suppliment" haha 😀 Reply brutalbeetle says: August 12, 2016 at 2:34 pm It's important to know how to supplement for people like myself with Crohn's that have a limited dietary palette, so most fruits and vegetables are virtually indigestible. And please for the love of god people stop linking me to studies about high fiber diets, FMT, hook worms and shit and thinking I haven't seen it before. If some yahoo article had the solution to crohn's we wouldn't have so many people with it. Reply Old Earthling Carl says: August 12, 2016 at 3:40 pm Legend!! Reply Taniesha Catherine says: August 12, 2016 at 4:00 pm It doesn't help that cultures are consistently becoming more lazy and entitled. They don't want to work hard to be healthy. They want to sit on their butts eating cheeseburgers and gravy fries while taking supplements in the morning that they cringe at every time they get a taste. Just eat the damn foods! God, they're not bad at all. Everyone is mind blown nowadays when you say you eat plain broccoli steamed because, "where's the cheese sauce?". Like no. Not everything needs to be smothered in animal fat and thus be super unhealthy. You're just addicted to the food and a specific brand of "food porn". Reply Miko says: August 12, 2016 at 5:27 pm The active ingredient in broccoli is broccoli 😂 Reply Emily Salmon says: August 12, 2016 at 5:29 pm I just finished your book "How Not To Die" it was eye opening. loved it! Reply Ronnie & Minh says: August 12, 2016 at 6:09 pm Love Dr. Greger! Reply me.echy5 says: August 12, 2016 at 6:16 pm is the "magic bullet " ingredient phytonutrients? Reply A A says: August 12, 2016 at 6:20 pm They can patent them if they genetically modify them. Ahhhh Reply A A says: August 12, 2016 at 6:23 pm 🙌 broccoli haha 🌳 Reply CHRISTIANNWO says: August 12, 2016 at 6:38 pm Sugar is the number one killer!…….But it's so delicious. Reply Topsoil Depletion Awareness (closing the loop) says: August 12, 2016 at 8:03 pm I have been saying this… broccoli goes hard. Reply faustoc4 says: August 12, 2016 at 8:07 pm Nutritionist have no ethics and they are not even scientists they are modern day snake oil salesmen Reply trust no one says: August 12, 2016 at 8:12 pm I've been feeling this way. There seems to be a price tag per everything naturally essential to human life. Reply Henrijs Rozenkopfs says: August 12, 2016 at 10:06 pm The active ingredient in broccoli is broccoli… I would make a bet, that if they would do the similar kind of study on B12, what they did for fiber – the result would come out the same, meaning – the active ingredient of B12 is nature… another words – the active ingredient of nature is nature. Well…giving it, that it is a bacteria, not a fiber – not quite the same, but anyway – it's similar…and I believe aventually the science will come up with the conclusion, that all that supplementation with the b12 was a big misunderstanding of how the things actually work…I just think it will take decades, if not even more, until we receive such news… Reply Carl B says: August 12, 2016 at 10:24 pm Dr Greger for World President! Seriously, though, Dr Greger, thanks for the amazing work you do in cutting through all the profit-driven crap about nutrition and telling it like it is. 🙂 Reply PoweredbyPlants says: August 13, 2016 at 12:15 am Where can I get these brocco-berry supplements you spoke of??? Reply takatsu5 says: August 13, 2016 at 12:54 am Awesome, active ingredient in broccoli is broccoli. Reply Garland N says: August 13, 2016 at 1:27 am I love whole foods. It is the best nutrition and medicine that we can ever put into our bodies. One day the rest of the world will wake up and be amazed! Thank you Dr. Greger. Reply Dolly Woofwoofer says: August 13, 2016 at 2:14 am the fuck do you typical american derp fucks jack off all over meat for anyways? shit is NOT that good. i'd take some chick peas and a sweet potato over some basic ass meat ANY day of the week….. simple as that…. Reply Judy FIELDS DAVIS says: August 13, 2016 at 10:09 am Thank you so much! Reply Eric Van Buggenhaut says: August 13, 2016 at 1:05 pm You nailed it Reply Alon Shapiro says: August 13, 2016 at 4:51 pm Great video as always Dr. Greger, thank you! Reply Tech Tins says: August 13, 2016 at 5:44 pm Basically don't bother with supplements for the majority of people accept for B12. Go direct to the natural foods instead. Reply Street says: August 13, 2016 at 7:35 pm There's a place for allopathy, but it has become commonplace because of the profits it yields. There are much better "natural" alternatives. Reply MauM / Mauro Miceli Consigli says: August 13, 2016 at 11:28 pm Keep up the awsome work Reply Ivan B says: August 14, 2016 at 9:10 pm Are there any antioxidants, minerals or vitamins that are ONLY found in carbs and NOT in proteins and fats? Reply Guenevere Schwien says: August 15, 2016 at 12:39 am Love your videos, I've been listening to the audio book of how not to buy lately and am loving it. I have been on Whole food plant based since june, but was vegan for years before that. I love having all this great info in one book, and I feel like with so many studies covered in one book it is very hard to argue with. I want to buy the book for everyone I know!!! Reply Betsy Cosmos says: August 15, 2016 at 11:07 pm Thanks to you, Dr. G., we keep finding out what foods to add to our plates that help us. Reply Gia The Sweet Potato says: August 16, 2016 at 12:18 pm what's your opinion on protein powder? vegan protein powder, that is. Reply jdstep97 says: August 21, 2016 at 1:13 am 1:40 Brocco-berry supplement made me think of Barak Obama. (Probably nobody cares, but I just wanted to say that.) Eat the broccoli and blueberries, though. Forget the supplement. Reply Des Troya says: August 21, 2016 at 10:37 pm Reconsidering Nutrition Science… published in 2014. Slow to catch on guys? Reply Dillon Bess says: September 3, 2016 at 6:11 pm Broccobery supplement? Hahaha Reply Кал says: June 10, 2017 at 5:39 pm We have an egg industry, a drug industry, a supplements industry…. …can we have a broccoli industry now?
