DESCRIPTION: Coronary heart disease, our #1 cause of death, was found to be almost non-existent in a population eating a diet centered around whole plant foods.
Who is Nathan Pritkin you ask? I briefly intro him in Engineering a Cure (file:///Users/MichaelGreger/Downloads/nutritionfacts.org/video/engineering-a-cure/index.html) and talk about the impact he personally had on my family in Our Number One Killer Can Be Stopped (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/our-number-one-killer-can-be-stopped/) and [ur Number One Killer Can Be Stopped].
Dr. William Clifford Roberts is the distinguished cardiac pathologist who doubles as the Editor-in-Chief of the American Journal of Cardiology that I quoted. More from him in Eliminating the #1 Cause of Death (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/eliminating-the-1-cause-of-death/) and Heart Attacks and Cholesterol: Purely a Question of Diet (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/heart-attacks-and-cholesterol-purely-a-question-of-diet/).
More on lowering LDL in Trans Fat, Saturated Fat, and Cholesterol: Tolerable Upper Intake of Zero (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/trans-fat-saturated-fat-and-cholesterol-tolerable-upper-intake-of-zero/).
What about the rates of other diseases among those eating traditional plant-based diets? That's the topic of the next video, One in a Thousand: Ending the Heart Disease Epidemic (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/one-in-a-thousand-ending-the-heart-disease-epidemic).
This is among the most powerful material I've ever come across. I hope you'll share it with your circles and consider donating (https://nutritionfacts.org/donate/) to the 501c3 nonprofit that keeps this website alive so I can keep digging!
Have a question for Dr. Greger about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/cavities-and-coronaries-our-choice/ and he'll try to answer it!
