Random says: March 25, 2014 at 5:21 am It's tough to read some of the hate spewed toward you, Dr. Greger. Keep doing what you're doing. I think you're saving lives. Reply balderdashery G says: March 25, 2014 at 7:03 am Hah! Take that you phytate scardie cat, who says all those phytates are gonna kill the plant eaters. Thank you again Dr. Greger! You're the best! He said I just parrot what all the plant eaters say, well I will do one better and send him the whole video! Rawwk! Polly wants a vegan cracker! Reply Annette Fowler says: March 25, 2014 at 11:19 am Dr Greger, do you have any thoughts on cooking with cast iron and how it affects our health?? Reply dbstube says: March 25, 2014 at 8:42 pm There's seldom any mention of the quantity of beneficial foods that should be consumed so I am going to assume that a minimum of 1/2 to as much as 1 cup of cooked beans 3 times per week would be about right in addition to other whole foods consumed 2 to 3 times per day.I have always hated the lack of quantifying in recommendations or general articles about research findings! Reply Monica Lois says: March 27, 2014 at 6:29 pm Does this means that it would be better to NOT soak grains and beans to get rid of the phytate? Reply Kirsi Laholer says: March 28, 2014 at 8:05 am do red beans have enough Phytates? Reply 97grad says: March 28, 2014 at 9:45 am Thank you so much Dr Greger for sharing this vital information. since finding your channel a few months ago I'm making much healthier and nutritious choices for my family and spreading the word amongst my friends as well.

Even though we keep learning more and more about the individual beneficial nutritional elements in veggies, we don't have to know it all to start eating well during the learning process. Veggies rule (and that includes beans!) Reply Samuel Vidal says: March 30, 2014 at 11:46 pm how to administer it ? Orally or via IV ?

I love that there's no mud slinging and that you're trying to give info with evidence that would help anyone. What about high meat/high vegetable vs high vegetable/ low meat? Reply Alex Grau says: September 25, 2014 at 3:21 am Does that mean nuts and seeds are fine to eat unsoaked? Also is extensive soaking of beans necessary? Reply 1983SMOGGY says: April 28, 2015 at 7:58 pm does phytates mean the same as phytic acid? Reply Spyke2789 says: May 15, 2015 at 5:01 am Hi doc, in regards to cancers I recently found out that I have a small cancer on my thyroid it's around 2.3 cm so it's quite small and Its called Papillary thyroid carcinoma. I was wondering, since this video is about preventing cancer using plant based diet, being my cancer this small do you think I can cure/reverse it by going on a raw vegan/plant based diet? Reply Marcos Shenobill says: February 22, 2016 at 2:19 am Should we soak oatmeal? Can I eat it raw and dry? Reply Andrew Harvey says: April 14, 2016 at 9:09 pm Nice, but then how does one explain the fact that people with iron deficiency are at an increased risk of colon cancer? http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17587088 Reply lexchance com says: January 10, 2017 at 2:18 pm I CANT BELIEVE HOW I WAS MISLED TO BELIEVE WE ACTUALLY NEEDED MEAT TO SURVIVE…I MEAN WHAT A CRIME AGAINST GOD!!!!!!!! JESUS CHRIST WHY DID YOU MAKE THESE 'TEACHERS'!? IM ONLY 40 AND NOW I UNDERSTAND…BECAUSE OF YOUTUBE? UNREAL HOW AMERICANS ARE TREATED, THE MOST HEARTWARMING PEOPLE Reply lexchance com says: January 10, 2017 at 2:19 pm TY DR GREGER FOR ANOTHER AMAZING CLIP GOD BLESS U!!! I SHARE ALL UR VIDS!!! Reply nistel SE says: September 18, 2017 at 5:40 pm Dr. Greger: Phytates (IP6 or phytic acid) have been shown by various studies to strongly prevent/treat all types of cancers. But a 2004 John Hopkins Public Health article ( titled "Enemy Within") suggests IP6 could repair (damaged) cancer cells (and thus make them grow?). Doesn't this contradict all the anti-cancer functions of IP6 since it can also repair the same cancer cells ( and make them survive/dangerous)? Amidst this confusing data, should we stop taking IP6 with Inositol and stop eating high phytates foods ( wheat bran, oatmeal, etc)? In the interest of the public , I hope you can clear up this confusing contradiction. Thank you. Reply bears 25 says: July 19, 2018 at 2:42 am Do anti nutrients kill systemic Candida?
