I'll never forget my eye doctors response. He literally checked twice, because he couldn't believe it. I also got rid of 5 insulin injections a day, and all blood pressure meds. Reply SeaMonkeyLad says: July 8, 2015 at 11:37 am My return to health on the rice diet has been unbelievable. My hair thinned considerably, but it was required for survival. No complaints here. Reply Jx Wx says: July 8, 2015 at 11:44 am I guess the same case as most would deduce that diet treatment you buy your own medicine in the form of food, the doctor can't make money from food treatment. Medical industry is a industry like any industry, profit is not to be overlooked, even it cost a limb, eyes and even life. Reply Rarufu says: July 8, 2015 at 11:53 am Very interesting video. It's so depressing how backward most modern doctors are. I imagine, the way things are going, in thirty years we'll be back to curing migraine by knocking holes in people's heads with rocks in order to release the evil demons. Reply Andréas Remis says: July 8, 2015 at 11:58 am I love how the opposite of what many scientists expect to happen in experiments often becomes common sense 100 years later. Still waiting for more to catch on with the movement. Too much good not to! #CompassionWins Reply Victor Crosswell says: July 8, 2015 at 12:02 pm forgotten no more like ignored, they ignore cause they don't make money off healthy people eating plant based diets. Reply TheStewieGriffinShow says: July 8, 2015 at 12:06 pm This rice diet claims you should be eating white rice. This is bizarre. I can understand eating black rice in this diet for eye improvement but WHITE rice??? It makes no sense. Does anybody have an explanation that makes sense? Note: 80% of the college students in China wear glasses now, and it is highly likely due to the large consumption of white rice. I did lots of public speaking in China, and I had a parent of several college students ask why so many college students in China wear glasses. She said that she was not raised on white rice, her eyes were prefect, and she has never worn glasses. I asked her what she was raised on and she said, "Corn."

Reply Michael Janavel says: July 8, 2015 at 1:39 pm I find it confusing that there is no consensus among the vegan doctors. Dr McDougall says rice is OK, but Dr Furman says you should eat no rice, and his proof is the rise of diabetes in the rice-eating countries. I would like to get my eyesight closer to what it was naturally, but it seems it will have to wait until people do more research. Reply Lulu says: July 8, 2015 at 1:47 pm As a vegan it will be more difficult to me to build muscle? animal protein is more efficient in that matter? Reply Lily Banana says: July 8, 2015 at 1:49 pm Omg scary Reply tamcon72 says: July 8, 2015 at 2:07 pm This should be a game changer in clinical medicine. The right people need to see this, but will they? I will disseminate this information as well as I can. Thanks for posting. Reply HighCarb Schwabe says: July 8, 2015 at 2:08 pm How much is photocoagulation vs how much is the rice diet? That might explain why photocoagulation is preferred by professionals. Reply Slim055 says: July 8, 2015 at 2:15 pm Critics want to discount these important quality-of-life issues that typically get so debilitating as you age: Good vision, frequent and easy bowel movement and easier urination, low-normal weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, blood-sugar, much reduced susceptibility to colds & flu (15-20+ years for me). Combine this with much better mobility, no arthritis, greater ability to work and exercise and have stamina through the day. Reply Oldschool says: July 8, 2015 at 2:46 pm Does anybody know of a specific plant based meal plan that's simple and free if possible ? I already looked at Dr Mcdougals plan it's good but to many choices. Thanks Keith Reply energyquicksand says: July 8, 2015 at 2:48 pm Medicine forgot? I think not. It's the system where a Dr's are forced to look at patients as 'revenue centers'. One can't charge nearly as much for dietary advice (even if it's safer and effective as they can for a complicated and dangerous optical surgery. It's a sad state of affairs that is all too endemic these days. Reply agent008chico says: July 8, 2015 at 10:31 pm Where can I get Dr. Walter Kempner's recipes or diet instructions? Reply Angela says: July 8, 2015 at 11:31 pm So what you're saying is you'd have to be blind to not go vegan? Reply Jason Brown says: July 8, 2015 at 11:41 pm Can Diabetic Retinopathy Be Reversed? Reply MoreEffectiveTeam says: July 9, 2015 at 12:21 am Dr. Gregor, are these results in respect to dealing with type 1, type 2 diabetics, or both? I am a type 1 diabetic. I may need to pay more attention to my glucose levels after eating rice, as sometimes it seems as though my glucose levels increase after rice consumption.

All the while everyone my age is obese and hyper fanatisize on protien. what a waste.

Reply NutritionFacts.org says: July 12, 2015 at 5:49 pm Dr. Kempner’s rice and fruit diet was proven to do things modern medicine hasn’t been able to top in 50 years.

My mother had diabetic retinopathy and a lot of laser surgery 🙁 Reply Ray Arjo says: July 23, 2015 at 4:36 pm All old age diet related diseases prove that we are Herbivores, that meat, dairy & eggs are not our natural food. For example if you pour 5-10% water in a brand new car's gas tank, it will still run. But after awhile it will damage the internals of engine & big expensive problems surface that cannot be ignored. Same thing if you replace motor oil with olive oil. It may still run, but the car will not last as long and maintenance costs will go up as the car ages. Reply Axed75 says: July 25, 2015 at 8:46 am this video is great. It really shows how modern medicine works in certain areas. And that's a little sad. Great work Dr, Greger, as always!! Reply musaire says: July 26, 2015 at 7:23 am OMG what is going on in medicine Reply elsa Grace says: September 1, 2015 at 4:37 pm One problem is that diet works in just 33% of patients so the "barbaric" surgeries and injections are still necessary in 67% of patients. I would try diet first but in the most likely case that it would fail I would be happy to be barabarized instead of going blind. Reply Hui Wu says: January 8, 2016 at 7:33 am I wished I had followed my Optometrist's advice earlier which was suggested two years ago. Fish oil supplement is the big answer. http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/75246.php Reply Hui Wu says: January 8, 2016 at 7:36 am I wish I had followed my optometrist answer earlier from two years ago, fish oil is the big answer.

Reply Almira Tria says: March 5, 2016 at 5:35 pm Please discussed retinitis pigmentosa Reply Jason Simpson says: March 7, 2016 at 10:09 pm I'm gonna try the diet. I've been vegan for awhile, but my blood sugars are still out of control. I had better control when I cut out fats. I wish I'd known it was reversible before. My doctor went straight to photo-coagulation, not even a mention of drugs/steroids. Reply meanman1992 says: March 25, 2016 at 9:59 pm Thanks Dr Greger, if you ever come across any more recent studies, follow up to this I would be most interest, I have a cousin diabetic retinopathy and I have sent her this but would be interested if anyone has taken this further.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:Exodus 20:8-9 KJV Saturday is the day of the Lord The claim that Christ by his death abolished his Father’s law, is without foundation. Had it been possible for the law to be changed or set aside, then Christ need not have died to save man from the penalty of sin. The death of Christ, so far from abolishing the law, proves that it is immutable. The Son of God came to “magnify the law, and make it honorable.” [Isaiah 42:21.] He said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the law;” “till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in nowise pass from the law.” [Matthew 5:17, 18.] And concerning himself he declares, “I delight to do thy will, O my God; yea, thy law is within my heart.” [Psalm 40:8.] GC88 466.3 Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJVLet us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

Reply Alice Bedwell says: August 17, 2018 at 5:21 pm I am a diabetic that has been off all meds since April of 2018. (Insulin) I did this by the Grace of God and a healthy ketogenic diet. I have lost 50 lbs, and my cholesterol is normalizing-triglycerides are normalizing and my kidney function has improved greatly! My retinopathy has not, as of yet. I do not believe I could eat a high carb diet and accomplish any reversal of any of the diabetic damage I have done to my body. More power to those who appear to have done so. But definitely not for me. Reply Christian Walter Hinze says: August 27, 2018 at 10:21 am What about Potatoes? Are they good or do they make the eyesight worse?
