BREAKING: Dr. Greger Slams Dietary Guidelines At Advisory Committee

BREAKING: Dr. Greger Slams Dietary Guidelines At Advisory Committee


– My name is Dr. Michael
Greger with nutritionfacts.org. This month, a paper was published in the Journal of the Academy of
Nutrition and Dietetics and found since there’s been no change in processed meat consumption
over the last 20 years or so, which represents just an
abject failure of all of us and the public health
community to warn people about the very real
risks of processed meat: bacon, ham, hotdogs, lunch meat, sausage Right? These are known human carcinogens. The official 2018 IARC report
couldn’t have been clearer, quote, “Consumption of
processed meat causes cancer of the colorectal.” So that’s our second leading cancer killer of men and women, combined. We know these foods cause cancer. I mean, we try not to
smoke around our kids. Why would we send them to
school with a bologna sandwich? That’s not hyperbole. According to the Surgeon General, living with a smoker increases the risk of lung cancer 15%, so the cancer risk of second-hand smoke is comparable to the 16 or 18% increase
risk of colorectal cancer. Even the equivalent of a
single sausage link a day. The 2015 dietary
guidelines really appeared to drop the ball on this issue saying processed meat
could be accommodated as long as sodium and
saturated fat limits were within limits, but that’s
ignoring the cancer risk, which we’ve known at
least back since 2007, when the first comprehensive
analysis was published by the American Institute
for cancer research. In fact, one of their
top 10 recommendations for cancer prevention: avoid
processed meat, full stop. American Cancer Society
also encouraged people to minimize intake of processed meat. We cannot allow the
billion-dollar meat industry to continue to subvert the science when so many million lives are at stake. The Global Burden of
Disease study, largest study of disease risk factors in history, funded by the Bill and
Melinda Gates Foundation, found that the number one cause of death in these United States
is the American diet. Since bumping tobacco to number two, this committee now has control
over our number one killer. You know, 1964 was the
peak year of smoking in the US before declining
basically every year since. What happened in 1964? The science hadn’t changed. We have studies going back to the 30s linking lung cancer to smoking. What changed is the
Surgeon General’s report. Just this public acknowledgement
by the power that be of this link between smoking and cancer. You now have this mantel
to make a difference by just informing the
American public about the risk of cancer with processed meat. Godspeed. (boom)

  1. I'm not vegan, but I understand the importance of a balanced diet, and that diet as for the proteins are concerned is chicken and fish. Having said that I am aware that only anecdotally that many dietitians are sounding that alarm and making the very point as stated about processed meats.

  2. I stopped eating processed meat six months ago. I stopped eating all meat six months ago. When I see people giving their kids bacon and hot dogs and deli meat, it breaks my heart. They wouldn't feed their kids those foods if they knew the risks.

  3. Dr. Greger, I tip my hat to you and your words of wisdom backed by science. Iโ€™ve said it once, Iโ€™ll say it again… YOU ARE THE MAN! Two thumbs waaaay up! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ. I will be sending this video to my bacon and sausage loving friends!

  4. Okay so now we know Dr Greger can speak faster than his videos (I normally speed them up).
    If they don't inform the public, they are probably being paid by the meat industry.
    I can't help but realize that one day we'll all be paying the doctor bills of people eating processed meat.

  5. All the money from the beef, dairy, pork and poultry councils will effectively snuff him out. Just like with tobacco, the road will be long.

  6. Lol does he think the solution is eating plants? Plants cause kidney damage sugar roots your teeth more fresh animal products is what we need.

  7. ONE person applauds him while guy in grey suit smirks at the end….wow. just wow. Lets hope his efforts dont fall on deaf ears.

  8. Why don't he talk about GMO'S AND ANTIBIOTICS is the real CAUSE OF CANCER?? We have been eating meat for thousands of years but cancer was RARE. WHY feed animals pesticides, GMO'S and ANTIBIOTICS when we know that causes cancer? That is the root of many problems to not mention SUGAR AND GLUCOSE is in everything.

  9. My daughter's friends birthday parties always serve hotdog pink sausage sausage rolls etc. I'm astounded that so called loving parents would allow their kids to eat such junk. School fundraisers sell sausages to raise money. It's ridiculous. Yet I'm looked upon by other parents as some kind of freak for banning my daughter from eating that crap and feeding her WFPB instead. It's a joke.

  10. I do not like this guy, but he is right about the over consumption processed meats!! They should be avoided and a lot would have been saved!!! But sadly these criminals responsible for dietary guidelines are corrupt and paid by the big food corporations!!

  11. Like a FUCKIN BOSS!!!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

  12. My family (myself, my husband and our 6 year old son) started eating a vegan, plant based diet several months ago…

    My husband is concerned, however, that we are not getting enough Vitamin D (especially our son)

    I would love your advice to ensure that my son at least is getting sufficient amounts (I take Vitamin D but my boys do not…)

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
    In gratitude,
    Narahya Byrne

  13. Each person in the room, gripped by his every word. A sledgehammer of unquestionable truth which has surely shaken up the powers that be with a renewed sense of alarming responsibility.

  14. There is an agenda to kill you all off people, wake up!! Look at the Georgia guide stones so you will know who your enemies are. They will never issue a guideline against processed meat because that has now proven to have killed millions of people.

  15. Awesome. Is there a full video somewhere online that shows the advisory committee response to Dr Greger?

  16. Is there a video of the entire committee? Dr. Pam Popper mentioned in an interview with you that there were some very angry doctors defending/promoting the Keto Diet and other low carb diets. I would love to see those doctors make their points, she made it sound VERY amusing.

  17. That is what I was thinking. There needs to be a Surgeon General's warning on meat, dairy, and processed foods and their connection to chronic diseases. Without a Surgeon General's warning, the American diet won't change.

  18. No Bacon, No Cancer ย VS ย Bacon and Cancer
    No Bacon, No Cancerย ย VS ย Bacon and Cancer
    No Bacon, No Cancerย  VSย  Bacon and Cancer

    Tough choice, but I think I'm keeping bacon and risking cancer.ย  YOLO

  19. You know, it's really annoying. I am so confused. I was vegan for a long time. Then went omnivore again because of all the anti-vegan information out there. Some of it is REALLY, really convincing. Also, just common sense tells me that we aren't purely herbivorous (for example, out in nature, I could never ever survive without animal foods). However, all of this supposed science that is "100% crystal clear" really speaks for a vegan diet. However the carnivores/omnivores say the same thing about eating animal foods.

    I just want to know the actual truth. Am I supposed to be vegan for optimal health? Am I supposed to be carnivore? Omnivore, but whole foods no processed crap?

    It's maddening. I have no bad intent. I don't want to be a sadist and kill animals for no reason. However if I know I gotta eat them, I don't have the least bit of guilt in having them killed so I can eat. I just don't know what is true. Posting this here is useless anyway, because nobody here will give me a non-biased answer. Same with the anti-vegan people. Nobody will give you an unbiased answer. They all want to have their beliefs validated, that is all.

    All I know is: The vegan diet was kinda bland. And goddamnit did I miss cheese and dairy. And eggs. My goodness. Meat, not so much, but yes also meat. Also, my gains were kinda bad despite following Dr Greger's diet to a t, including Esselstyn's advice of no oil whatsoever, and eating plenty of raw foods as well. Digestion wasn't very good the first 6 months, then it sort of picked up a bit.

    I hope I will get to the bottom of this soon enough.

  20. Clearly a mouth piece of the elites. They want us on a vegan diet so badly. Studies are meaningless when you can buy the outcome. Bill & Melinda are not for the people! Our bodies actually NEED animal meat to thrive. Plants donโ€™t want to be eaten and have defenses that make us ill. https://youtu.be/NHsog5lKg6Y

  21. I applaud his efforts and his tenacity. I'm sure he realizes that in the "legitimate" world of medicine he's marginalized. It reminds me of the Little Prince and the Turkish scientist who made a great discovery. In years to come, HOPEFULLY when it's not to late (but I have my doubts) he and the rest of the plant based docs will be known for what they really are. Unfortunately we are simply on the fringe

  22. Dr. Greger looks like the most Unhealthy Dr. I get my food nutrition facts from the Sexy healthy people.

  23. He said that all processed meats are known human carcinogens. Everyone that understands basic probability should look into the statistical significance of the research that heโ€™s citing. That statement is false and has been debunked by nutritional scientists.

  24. I love Dr Greger I have his book how not to die and have listened to it on audible about 10 times I always pick up the odd bit of info i had not noticed before, it will be interesting to see what there reaction will be

  25. For 48 years to think I've been eating this shit, 2 months now plant based, not vegan" can't see eating vegan apart from no dairy being healthy coz of junk food,

  26. This man is about to save more lives than the Avengers haha but seriously this is what a real life hero looks like. Thank you Dr. Greger!

  27. Dr M Greger you are half my age and look 10 years older how is your life style healthier…and your a little fluffy don't you think your BMI is higher that 25 so your over weight.
