  1. I would like to thank you for the efforts you’ve put in penning this
    website. I really hope to view the same high-grade content by you later on as
    well. In truth, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my
    own, personal website now 😉 cbd/thc vape pens producer [boolivery.com] vape pens alibaba

  2. Now you have compared 2 unhealthy diets, and found the vegan diet to be better than the typical American diet, you need to compare vegan with a balanced healthy diet which includes some animal based foods.

  3. We all know that the vaccine is man made and people that getting vaccine still getting Covid. So this ration of vaccine compare to plant base diet is bulshit answer. The vaccine is no science, is money derived so the most important thing is the triangle for the immune system which is vitamin D, Zinc and vitamin C. So this lecture is just rubbish. 👎

  4. Oh come on people! Use your head and just think! Hippocrates said let Food Be Thy Medicine Thy medicine thy Food.For years we have been told of the benefits of fruits and vegetables.And that we should eat them because they are good for you! And the beneficial role of antioxidants like vitamin c and zinc and iron these things boost your immune system and keep your immune system very very strong and healthy and this is a known fact for many years. For years upon years we've been told of the benefits that polyphenols have on your health and anthrocyanines and neutrophils and t-cells part of our immune system designed to protect us against virus pathogens and bacteria so does diet affect covid 19? Of Course it does! Why wouldn't it! You get what you put in! If you eat a diet of junk food and soda you are going to get poor health ie obesity and bad diseases like cancer and diabetes and high blood pressure your diet affects what happens to you disease wise why would it be any different for a virus it's the same thing!And just so you know the cdc has linked obesity to higher chances of covid 19 than those at healthy slimmer weights. So yeah again you get what you put in! A fat person will always do worse than a lean person ALWAYS!!!

  5. Usually listen to the content on this channel but didn't even watch this one. C19 is a scam & I want nothing to do with the plandemic agenda.

  6. i work in an urban pediatric emergency department.i have been eating a predominantly whole food diet for over 5 years….and i have taken care very intimately of children with COViD …. and i have never had COVID….i am vaxxed and boosted too…but it definitely helped well.

  7. absolutely ! ! ! but you have to understand,people at work were discussing drinking tequila to cure it,(covid)when alcohol weakens our immune system.so our collective mentality is so far out we cant even perceive eating raw fruits and vegetables as it is.

  8. Great video. you've remind me of what someone once said❤️ "The mind is the man, the poor is in it and the rich is it too". This sentence is the secret of most successful investors. I once attended similar and ever since then i been waxing strong financially, and i most tell you the truth..

  9. Wow his answers were painfully way to long ugh. Don’t trust Harvard anything as they are apart of the DS, bust whatever. As far as he had to throw in the evil juice plus the booster tell all what you need to know. Folks always do your own research, trust no one until you do your own digging. Me personally, keep what resonates with you and leave the rest. Don’t not try to be a vegan as it takes time, most often we see people doing a junk food vegan diet in the beginning for lack of not knowing what to eat. Don’t beat yourself up, keep going. Again I stress the fact that you have to question most Doctors as they have not been trained in this area. Not all are bad but some are, so be careful.

  10. Chuck does a great job interviewing and brings great informative ppl to the Exam Room. This is one. Keep up the great shows.

  11. Dr Chan didn’t seem to be very informative. He mentioned smoking, well it turns out that from a China study that people who smoked were less likely to get Covid or have complications. Who would have thought Nicotine was Covid protective? Don’t get me wrong, I’m not for smoking but this doctor needs to gather his facts before using comparisons .

  12. My son ran the kitchen in a hospital where he changed the food from “hospital” food to more nutritious food, even getting very ill people to eat who wouldn’t eat before. He even started to grow herbs to use in the kitchen. He got little support from most of the hierarchy though. When he left everything went back to normal.

  13. Plant-based is just that.animal proteins play a role (essential amino acids)in an anti-inflammatory diet,especially from grass-fed sources.At the least,consuming a bone broth only as a component of a “plant-based”diet helps to draw proteins from other plant sources.

  14. I am Whole Foods plant based oil free but I am severely sleep deprived conically for many many years since October 1, 2012 and I have PTSD I'm stuck in a trauma loop from violence had a doctor so shockingly violent I had to get emergency surgery on my retina and they were no rests and the state city and federal government refused to investigate what went on. I called Hippa and was brushed off I tried to report the doctor and his employee and staff to medical review board for Misconduct for New York State couldn't get anywhere in the NYPD broke even more loss to make all crimes go away including their own for a doctor that has lots of NYPD.

    So I flew to Asheville I guess a year and a half ago my brain so tired and on the way back there is man exhibiting symptoms he was even exhibiting them as we were sitting waiting to two weeks and he was sitting next to me he asked me if I could help him to get more fresh air which I did.

    Came home in two days later approximately I started to have symptoms at first I didn't think was a big deal little bit of flu but I contracted COVID-19 so extremely I did everything in my power to not go to an emergency room I had gone to get tested the rapid test was negative and the city was backed up because this was just before Thanksgiving so it took about a week 7 to 9 days to get the results were normally I would get them in 2448 hrs. max .

    I had been tested before I got on the plane and I was negative.

    Anyway I don't think my diet helped but I could no longer eat I was down to 123 pounds and I was 5 foot six I am 5 foot six had to get electrolytes delivered to my apartment in Brooklyn and then when I could eat I did not want any whole foods I got harvest vegan pizza, vegan cheddar cheese white bread that's all I could eat in little teeny bites.

    Before I could start eating again I was having excruciating pains epic pains in my heart behind my heart my nurse practitioner wanted me to go to the emergency room but I told her the doctor at urgent care who told me stay home I have symptoms check my heart and my heart was okay.

    If I had not been whole food plant-based Oil free it could've been even worse. I was a victim of a violent crime almost 10 years ago October 1 to be 10 years and after the crime I just stayed home as much as possible watch Netflix ate junk switch to veganism became a vegan junk food almost obese person was heading towards obesity I have gray rims around my irises and I'm told the blood vessels behind my eyes show high fat so I got a phone call that it was .1 pre-diabetic it doesn't run in my family so I became strict whole food plant-based oil free lost 40 pounds…..

    I do love tahini I'd say my number one fat is tahini and I have too much of it but I don't eat vegan junk food except occasionally harvest pizza because I will never forget the joy and he uplifted gave me to be able to eat when I just couldn't eat after contracting Covid I really wanted to die the pain was brutal pain all over my body pain in my heart and chest couldn't eat but I did get through it.

    I'm working right now and sleep and I need Whole Foods plan based oil free so today I had oatmeal I had fresh fruits I had banana…. The first time I'm eating fruits and never ate with banana blended in a food processor, I had temp e with spinach and I had air fried potatoes no oil of course.

    I really didn't wanna get the vaccine but I got it because I wanted to visit my mother at the nursing home and be able to fly if I need to fly so I got Pfizer and the first one no problem the second Pfizer again intense nausea pain in my chest but not as excruciating is when I was sick with Covid but I had to stay in bed and I contemplated weather I'd have to go to emergency room I definitely called my doctor.

    I don't want to deal with anything Covid anymore I don't want any more injections no boosters…..

    I'm whole food plant-based oil free but I'll casually let myself have a harvest pizza…. or vegan treat if I eat out since I am 5 foot six and 133 pounds right now. After the attack I gained 40 pounds I was up to 175 pounds. I wanted to see my dermatologist who rented from an unethical Dr F had no guidelines for the office who never checked the references of the employee that punched a hole in my Retina and he admits discussing me without ever talking to me without investigating what happened he discussed me with patients and he lied under oath that my doctor had never talk to him about it which is absolute perjury and if she didn't talk to him about it and he had nothing to do with it and he never spoke to the NYPD then how did he get my name ? I was stalked from behind a medical reception desk after I was told I have No rights! I asked would you consider paper cups instead of styrofoam it's better for mother earth. After years and years of lying she did admit she was angry at me from the moment I sat down because I move my chair a few inches but she and her boss committed a lot of perjury I guess because doctors specially connected to New York City government employees like NYPD etc. are considered like Jeffrey Epstein a Buffalo TEFLON.

    I went to a doctors for peace of mind I left with a hole in my retina I was sexually assaulted my patient rights and patient privacy violated and then it was arranged for my attacker to file a false cross-complaint the next day and then it was arranged to have me violently threatened over the phone it didn't stop there is a CRIMES in plain sight.

    I don't think anything harmed my health more than that violin attack at the doctors. I don't know if victims of cove it are going to fully recover and who knows what the effect of these vaccines and boosters will be but I think the worst time ever done to my mind my body and to my health was being violated at a doctors office in Soho New York City and the many extremes they and others went to to make sure I didn't have justice, to make sure there were no arrests and then I did not get justice in every court that I pursue Justice.

    I am Jewish and I was and continue to be treated like a Jew in the early stages a Nazi Germany. New York City New York State is going to hell metaphorically speaking , just look at the news…. and I don't think they are even Close to hitting bottom….

  15. Hospitals serve cheap food because it is cheap not because it is healthy. Hospitals like doctors are not diet orientated. They do not feel obliged to change people s hahbits

  16. Dr Igudia on YouTube cured my genital herpes Virus (HSV2) with his natural herbs supplements which I ordered from him after seeing a lot of reviews from different people and I’m very grateful to have come in contact with him.

  17. Glory to Almighty God after many years I finally found joy with the help of Dr. Agboya on YouTube, the great herbalist doctor helped me to cure my Herpes 2, with the herbal medicine product that I ordered. I will forever be grateful to Dr. Agboya on YouTube #dragboyaherbalhome

  18. I purchased HSV and HPV herbal medicine from Dr Alaho Olu on YouTube and received it within 4 days and i used it as prescribed, I tested negative within 3 weeks of usage….

  19. Before coming to this channel, I researched the post-Covid-19 syndrome (long-haul covid) to see what their answers were. None but one of the researchers spoke about diet, and the one mention only said, “Eat more nutrition.”

    How do we get medical schools to teach about how foods affect the body?

  20. I cannot eat most plants, no fruit, no pulses, no high-fructose vegetables or vegetables that create gas. I also cannot eat dairy products either. IBS is an uncompromising thing.
