Disease Prevention with a Vegan Diet

I really like Dr. Greger’s presentation style: quick, often funny, and jam-packed with persuasive arguments for a vegan (or at least plant-based) diet, backed by peer-reviewed research and data.

His talk last year on The Leading Causes of Death really made an impression on friends and family. I predict the same for his latest yearly wrap-up entitled More Than an Apple a Day: Preventing Our Most Common Diseases.

As before, I recommend you set aside the hour it takes to watch as Michael Greger, M.D. “runs through the top dozen reasons people visit their doctors.” As he puts it, “the sixth leading cause of death may actually be doctors,” referring to the estimated 100,000 Americans killed each year due to adverse drug reactions.

Add in medical mistakes (which the Institute of Medicine estimates kills at least 44,000 Americans) and that brings “health”care up to our country’s third leading cause of death. Throw in hospital-acquired infections, and we’re talking maybe 187,000 Americans dead every year (and millions injured) by medical care.

This presentation is his response to these dire statistics, to help people “avoid getting sick in the first place… in hopes of moving my colleagues and me lower down the list of common killers.” :)
