    Unless and until the US Department of Health and the FDA promotes whole food and plant based food and stops subsidizing meat, dairy and sugar, I can’t promote Medicare for all. We can’t afford all the diseases of obesity, it will bankrupt the nation.

    I love daterade! I do 10 pitted medjool dates, soaked beforehand, with frozen strawberries, and 2 1/4-3 cups of water.

    I love Dr Freeman! My husband used to work with him at National Jewish and he turned us onto WFPB eating. 3 1/2 years later we’re still going strong and feeling great! I haven’t checked my cholesterol in a few years, but it initially dropped over 50 points to a healthy range. Thanks for all you do promoting this diet and lifestyle, Dr Freeman.

    I am pretty poor I buy old fashioned oats and eat 6 cups a day and 5 cups of frozen blueberries thawed. I use some stevia

  8. JENNIFER G. on December 29, 2021 at 7:49 pm

    New to vegan diet. I’m always full but so tired.

  9. Jeremy Barlow on December 29, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    My go to drink is unsweetened black leaf tea with about a teaspoon of lemon juice in each glass. I cheat & use the squeezable bottles of lemon juice. No artificial sweeteners needed. Not enough juice to do much more than give it a little flavor.

  10. sunwon on December 29, 2021 at 7:52 pm

    tired of people who think veganism is a diet

  11. cindy murray on December 29, 2021 at 7:53 pm

    Look up the FAA warning to Pilots to avoid flying for 8 hours after consuming diet sodas
    The aspartame slows the body’s reflexes. This info was shared by two gentleman from NASA who were investigating unusual private plane accident anomalies. This was several years ago & I gave up diet coke that very day.

  12. Pat G on December 29, 2021 at 7:53 pm

    Awww, I wanted to share this, but he did an analogy about seat belts and studies.

  13. Greg Meissner on December 29, 2021 at 7:56 pm

    nothing new nor particularly interesting

  14. Joanne Lawrence on December 29, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    Loved the "datorade" bit there. My favourite fuel for a long run is a couple of dates stuffed with almond butter and sprinkled with a combination of regular iodized salt and potassium salt. So good. Though I once made the mistake of stopping in an offleash area to eat them one time and had a few good boys come out of nowhere to beg for a snack. 😆

  15. Unlisted on December 29, 2021 at 7:57 pm

    Being vegan is only about animals. Maybe, you should start changing your titles.

  16. Travel Guy on December 29, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    New to your channel – Chuck Carroll, you do a fantastic job with your interviews! You listen extremely well, ask fantastic follow-up questions, and hit the main points for health concerns so very well! You, Chuck, make this a very interesting and relevant Health Channel! I’m hooked! Keep up the wonderful interviews, I’m learning a ton!

  17. Darren Mcintosh on December 29, 2021 at 7:59 pm

    people love the vegan diet at first but that wont last for ever once the nutrition thats stored in your body from years of consuming animals products runs out your be running in to issues with nutritional deficiencies cuasing all kinds of mental health issues then your be faced with doctors mistaking it for other things such as mental disorders the thing is with a vegan diet you get so used to feeling a certain way you forget what it really feels like to feel good the vegan diet is a incomplete diet and doesnt give you all that you need and anyone that say other wise is talkng bs the medical professional doesnt care about your health there only ever promoting agenda for the unseen forces of the darkness everything in this world they say is a invertion of the truth so therefor they want you geting ill not healthy have you ever asked your self why they only promote crap food on billboards not healthy food ? well the reason is they want you to eat slow dealth food and dumbed down and geting ill there gaslighting you and want you to buy in to false realities about your self and the true nature of reality they want you dumb down
    the brain needs a high ratio of omega 3 fatty acids and essential amino acids in order to function properly you cant get that from plants and fruit alone in high enough amount to function right longterm and flaxseeds dont cut it these doctors dont give a dam about your health and now in 2021 doctors and the bill gates foundation are promoting veganism if you want to end up mentally weak and retarded stay vegan plenty of vegan going back to eating animal products and restoring there health that says it all all these people who says they just went the wrong way about it are talking shit and befor long there be face with the same issues

  18. Earth Mamma on December 29, 2021 at 8:05 pm

    So, takeaway… eat as close to a wfpb diet as you can.

  19. Scott Clendaniel on December 29, 2021 at 8:07 pm

    How do you submit questions?

  20. chiyerano on December 29, 2021 at 8:08 pm

    Good show with great information as usual. I do use tropical oils fairly sparingly and try to make sure they are not only in their virgin form but also from sustainable and fair traded sources. I really enjoy coconut butter.

  21. Rachel Miller on December 29, 2021 at 8:08 pm

    There’s so much misinformation in this interview; pretty much everything he said was incorrect in some way. It’s very typical of what a doctor would think – viewer beware, this is not good science.

  22. Baby Tho. on December 29, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    Mass media will not promote such good things!

    This video is Discussing with a lot of data support.

    Mr Fouchi and WHO and other allopathic agents and media will not promote healthy population. Healthy food and healthy population will be harmful to the economy, healthcare and factory food industry , employment, tax base, billionaires habit of milking the population for their habitual leisurely life.

    You can live comfortably with one income if you can grow or eat real food and keep life healthy.

    If you live leisurely with one income, economy will be destroyed.

    So answer is NO.
    No mass media, politicians, government, ‘healthcare’, and food industry will promote healthy living by boosted immunity from natural habits!

  23. Richrico Granada on December 29, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    When I became vegetarian 30 years ago it was not because I was worried about my health, or better, it was related to my health…my heart was bleeding heavily due to compassion for Animals. Today, older and wiser, I became Vegan which benefits Animals even more…May the Universe create more wise and compassionate humans like all of us Vegans.

  24. sir corky's riley on December 29, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    Happy he mentioned coconut oil on the outside of the body is okay because i do use it sometimes on the outside but never on the inside.

  25. debbie lente on December 29, 2021 at 8:10 pm

    Millet and sprouted oats, great breakfast, always berries

  26. debbie lente on December 29, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    it is not the rabbit food, it is the Animal abuse, the high chemicals our government is filtration our bodies for financial gain. Our health, so glad i am activity listening to these programs, Bobby Parish from Favcity, he also had me into reading the labels, incredible, thank you Chuck and Dr. Freeman, take care

  27. beepbeepnj on December 29, 2021 at 8:14 pm

    No living creature ever took any vitamins or supplements. 102 year old Dr. Fred Kummerow Ph.D in food chemistry and Professor of food science never took any vitamins or supplements for evidence based reasons which were based on his 450 published scientific food research reports. He said that unless you have a poor diet or a specific medical condition then those unregulated vitamins and supplements can do more harm than good. The ones they put in fortified foods are a safer option only if needed.

  28. odudu on December 29, 2021 at 8:16 pm

    Won’t stop testifying to the world about your kind gesture how you cured me off genital herpes thank a lot Dr Awole on YouTube….

  29. Eszter Horvath on December 29, 2021 at 8:17 pm

    Stefan bringt es auf den Punkt – Bei diesem Irrsinn zu behaupten, man habe wissenschaftliche Studien durchgeführt, ist absolut krank im Kopf 🤬

    ➡️ Die Adjuvantien, fälschlicherweise als Hilfsstoffe in Impfstoffen bezeichnet, sind unheimlich gefährlich

    ➡️ Keine einzige mRNA-Impfung hat jemals in Tierversuchen funktioniert – IM GEGENTEIL!

    ➡️ In allen Impfstoffstudien werden keine Placebo-Studien durchgeführt – In der Placebogruppe sind die sogenannten Adjuvantien (Hilfssubstanzen) immer enthalten.

    ➡️ Diese Studien werden in den ärmsten Ländern durchgeführt, bei denen keiner etwas mitbekommt.

    Einfügung (JWD): Wenn die von Dr. Jane Ruby präsentierte Meldung, – "UAL-Forscher in Spanien decken die tatsächlichen Inhaltsstoffe im Pfizer-Biontech Impfstoff auf" – zutrifft, dann bestehen die Corona-Impfstoffe fast zu 100% aus Adjuvantien in Form von Graphenoxid-Nanopartikeln. Was wiederum klar macht, dass die Reise in Richtung "Transhumanismus", zu menschlichen Robotern gehen soll.
    "Jede der sechs Impfdosen aus der Impfstoffflasche bestand zu 99,99203% (747 ng) aus Graphenoxid. Der Rest war RNA 0,00797% (6 ng).

  30. Colleen Parker on December 29, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    Very informative, as always!

  31. Rose Cora on December 29, 2021 at 8:19 pm

    I suffered from asthma for over 40 years. I got rid of it with a vegan diet. I am vegan. I eat a whole plant based diet, and loving it.

  32. Chris Svenningson on December 29, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    I think that if a person, even a type 2 diabetic like me is that if you consume extra virgin olive oil like they have in the Mediterranean, I think it’s 100% fine based on the life longevity in Southern Europe. If people have too go way too strict, the healthy Vegan/Vegetarian diet just may not be sustainable. Our bodies do need fats. To say our bodies do not need healthy fats is not true.

  33. Joan Emmett on December 29, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    I’m gonna use this great opportunity to thank Dr IGUDIA on his YouTube channel who cured my Type 2 Diabetes disease with his natural herbs medication

  34. Tene' Tene' on December 29, 2021 at 8:22 pm

    Chuck Carroll I am new to your channel!!!❣️ Has anyone ever told you that you look like prince the music artist🙂??? I just had to mention it….anyway, blessings to you and yours!!!❣️💕

  35. Alexa D'Amato Barrera on December 29, 2021 at 8:24 pm

    I heard about the 2030 moon wobble and flood potential. I did not think about the rise in water born illnesses. SUCH A GREAT POINT!!!! So scary!!! Time to move to the mountains!

  36. Tavi Libra on December 29, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    I hear that Coconut water is a great source of electrolytes.

  37. aclassmedicine on December 29, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    If you need to refrigerate the food, the next day it is no longer fresh. Shop at a farmers’ market, not a chain supermarket. "Two hours after an orange is picked it has already lost half of its vitamin C." Apples kept in cold storage for 6 months…guess.

  38. Colleen Dunn on December 29, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    In March of this year (2021) I was 183 lbs and diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and stage 3b chronic kidney disease (CKD) with an A1C of 7.1%. At the suggestion of my SIL, I started following the Exam Room podcast, follow a whole food vegan lifestyle, and am one of the “Roomies”. I just had my first follow up with my internist today (July 2021), and I lost 20 lbs and have an A1C of 5.8%. What PCRM promotes WORKS.

  39. Gil Torres on December 29, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    I ate 1 cucumber and 2 med-small apples and felt like I ate a whole pizza lol

  40. Sarah Schlotfeldt on December 29, 2021 at 8:30 pm

    I never believe I could get rid of my Diabetes disease not until I came across Dr IGUDIA YouTube channel and after using his herbs medication that was the end of my Diabetes disease

  41. Eric Patterson on December 29, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Vegans talking about the vegan diet, of course they are going to say it’s more healthy, go figure.

  42. Health Tips For Healthy Life on December 29, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Interesting, but the effectiveness of the vegan diet is not well studied yet.

  43. Highlander on December 29, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    health benfits….

    painful death
    slow death
    muscle loss
    using the bathroom 300 times a day

    yup good health benefits

  44. Phillippe jean on December 29, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    I wish I had known this channel long ago. I have been vegetarian for 4 years and my cholesterols been down Year after year without medication

  45. ThinkingForward on December 29, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    I feel fortunate to have access to real solid nutrition science through PCRM and Dr. Freeman! Thanks for putting forth the actual truth—a really important public service!

  46. Sadie Virtue on December 29, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Great video: this is very informative. Thank you.

  47. Mary Hamilton on December 29, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    I eat an whole food plant based vegan diet…haven’t eaten animals in 20 years. No dairy for 11 years. Vegan for three years. I read and listen to videos on plant based no oils I’m considering giving it a try…the only oils I use are Organic EVO cold press(not for cooking) and organic Avocado cold press for sautéing…my question is does cold press make it safer❓

  48. Don't Worry Be Happy on December 29, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    For our friends from the UK –
    "Supermarket giant Sainsbury’s has issued an urgent recall on some of its most popular vegan products.
    The retailer is recalling Love Your Veg Butternut Squash and Lentil Lasagne products.
    The recall happened after Sainsbury’s discovered that it actually contains the Sainsbury’s Bolognese Melt, which contains milk, pork and beef."

  49. Carrie on December 29, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    what are the doctors thoughts on munkfruit sweeteners

  50. Rosalinda Parrish on December 29, 2021 at 8:42 pm

    How about MCT oil like Brain Octaine? Good for brain or no?
