Resolving the Health Care Crisis: T. Colin Campbel at TEDxEast

Resolving the Health Care Crisis: T. Colin Campbel at TEDxEast

I’m here to talk about health.
Your health, my health, the health of your families and friends. Especially our children;
and I’m actually here to talk about the health
in fact of our country. But talking about health,
thinking about how we can get health, we are in a system today
that is not exactly to our liking. I think many of you would probably agree
that we have a health care crisis. Eighteen percent
of our gross domestic product is accounted for by the money we spend
for taking care of our health. In this country the United States
has the highest per capita health care costs in the world. We’re twice as high
as the next highest country. But in spite of all this money
that is being spent, the quality of our healthcare,
we’ve got to really face it, the quality of health care
in this country, according to the statistics and health
indicators, place us near last or last among similarly
economically developed countries. On top of that we got another problem too,
we’ve got more than 50 million people who don’t have health insurance
and that’s up 40% just the last decade. This is a fantastic business model,
I think you would agree, it really has been,
a lot of people are making a lot of money. But as far as health
it’s not a good health model. In terms of looking to the future
of what’s likely to come, because of this problem we presently have,
if the tripling of childhood obesity during the last decade
or the last 30 years is any indication, we’re not going in the right direction. Especially when we think about too,
the invasion of our children by type 2 diabetes; it used to be called
adult-onset diabetes. We might have to put
the children thing in it too. Or the eighty-three percent increase
in a harsh drug like Ritalin in our children
during the last four years. Something is not quite right. Talking about prescription drugs
by the way, at the present time nine out of ten people
60 years of age and older are consuming at least one or more
prescription drugs on a regular basis. I’m not one of them by the way
and not more than 60, neither is my wife taking drugs. Prescription drugs cost on the other hand
have doubled in the last decade and it’s after we take into consideration
adjustment for inflation. And on this particular point as much as
we are using prescription drugs these days, it’s sort of the centrepiece
of our health care system, it turns out it’s a number three
cause of death. Some would say number four, depending on
how you divide up the first three, but in any case you don’t see this listed in the causes of death
in mostly the popular reports. Something’s missing, something is missing
from our system and that’s really
what I want to talk to you about. I’d like to suggest it’s nutrition,
we don’t understand it, it’s confusing, and on this question
concerning nutrition let me just do
a little defining here if I may. Nutrition if we think logically is
actually using food to maintain health and prevent disease and the typical diet
that we now, in my view, believe is the healthiest possible diet
is a so called 80-10-10 diet. Namely it’s the nutrient composition
having to do with 80 parts carbohydrate, 10 parts protein, 10 parts fat
on the basis of an energy basis. And that translates into a practical
message what I’m talking about now it’s a whole food plant-based diet
with little or no of the three devils. Oil and fat being one, sugar and salt. That’s the diet
that really does create optimal health. And on that question concerning
nutrient composition, by the way, nutrient composition is the index,
is the characteristic of food the best defines its effect
on us in terms of health. And in terms of this
nutrient composition question, antioxidants, complex carbohydrates
and vitamins, those are the key elements
that really give rise to health. They’re all found in plants,
that’s what plants really are. Plants make these things,
animal foods don’t make these things. We might see a little antioxidants
in animal based foods from time to time, but that has to do with the animals
having eaten that kind of thing before they were slaughtered. Fat and protein are essential elements,
absolutely essential elements, but it turns out that plants have about
nine to eleven percent or so, on average, animal-based foods have quite a bit more. So there’s this distinctive difference
between animal and plant-based foods. There’s another class of food
that has crept into our society, too, in more recent decades
that has to do with processed foods. Processed foods their nutrient composition
is all over the map, it depends on what, how one combines
pieces of the other groups of foods. Processed foods also are not good
because they tend to be very high in salt, sugar and fat, the three devils. So I come back to my main point,
this whole plant-based foods that really was doing the job for us. Now when people think about
whole plant-based foods, we’ve known for a good long time,
our grandmothers told us, the mothers told us that,
it prevents future disease, but it’s not only about using this diet
to prevent future disease and here is the kicker,
here’s the thing that really matters that the public tend not to know. It’s also about
using this same kind of diet to actually treat existing disease and I think that’s
a really important concept, because it goes right to the core of what our healthcare
and medical care system is all about. Here’s a list of diseases, for example,
that one can find in a legitimate scientific literature, in a peer-reviewed
literature, here are diseases that have been documented to be affected
by a whole food plant-based diet. That is to say
this kind of diet prevents, suspends, that means stops the further progression,
or cures all of these diseases. We can now cure heart disease,
in fairly late stages. We can cure type 2 diabetes
in a very short period of time. I have spent more than 50 years
in this field as an experimental researcher,
if you will, in the area of nutrition and want to share with you
a little bit about where I came from, and why I think the way I do. Now it’s controversial for some, but nonetheless I really believe
in the data that we have obtained. Initially I was involved in investigating
nutrients on a one-by-one basis and still today that’s the way
research tends to work, looking at one thing at a time,
just one thing at a time. But over the years I finally
came for the view and this is really where the punch line is, this is where
the power of nutrition really exists: nutrition should be recognized as
a holistic effect of countless nutrients, involving countless diseases,
working through countless mechanisms. Now I want to share with you, just some, as I look back and sort of ask myself
how did I sort of get to this place, because I didn’t start here
in my career some 50 years ago and want to share with you
just a few observations that are taken from my own research. Quite a number of years ago
now 30, 35 years ago, that kind of set the stage in a way
for developing some principles that apply to what nutrition and health
really is all about. This model I’m going to be telling you
about in the next three or four slides here involves a laboratory animal model,
laboratory rats in this particular case, that had been genetically programmed
to get cancer and so let’s see what do we see. I’m interested in this particular case
here to see what effect nutrition might have on that model, where the genes
are there to create the disease. When we feed, in this particular case,
an animal that has the ideal levels of protein, that being
about twenty percent of total protein, when we feed a diet
that is 20 percent dietary protein, these cancers are growing well
in the first six weeks in those animals. In contrast when you feed a diet
of 5 percent dietary protein, they don’t, even though that they’ve been
genetically programmed to get the disease. There’s this next little bit of
this observation really struck me as being quite significant, namely
when we watch these sort of cancers growing in the first stage
and switch the diet back and forth between 20 percent protein and
5 percent protein, you can see it there. We could got to a point we could turn on
and turn off cancer development, it was a very exciting concept,
because it basically says, in this case it’s protein, but basically
in a more general sense, it shows that nutrition
controls cancer development. Very exciting concept instead of
thinking about genes causing cancer or carcinogens causing cancer
or viruses causing cancer. What I’m talking about here
in this particular case, nutrients, nutrition basically
controlling cancer development. Now it turns out
that the protein that we were using, up until a certain point in time,
I didn’t pay a lot of attention to it, because it was a protein
that was available for us, was casein. Casein is the main protein in cow’s milk!
Why is that important? Well soy and wheat protein for example does not increase cancer development
like does casein. Here’s a couple of plant proteins
not doing it, one animal protein doing it,
a major difference between the two. So it’s suggested
at that particular point in time, the hypothesis, that maybe
animal protein would promote cancer and plant protein would prevent cancer and that came down
as a fairly general statement that it was to carry through
much of my research, it turned out that’s the bifurcation
that really led to these distinctive differences
between the two different kinds of foods. Now, as I say, this was a little troubling
for me personally at the time, because actually
I was raised on a dairy farm. There’s me up front maybe I think it was
about nine and a half years ago or so. [LAUGHTER] And another just sort of
sidebar story here before I go on, I talked about casein, dairy and so forth,
so we have a lot of evidence now that dairy is a troublesome food,
a very troublesome food, not just because of what we found with respect to its ability
to increase cancer. But you know we, my family, we don’t use
dairy anymore, haven’t in some time, and I suggest if we want to do it right,
you know, get with the program. [LAUGHTER] So let’s get back then to the model
that I was using, just to tell you about some of the principles that in fact
affected me and my thinking, in a larger context as we went forward. Namely in this particular case we were
looking at just not that 5 percent, 20 percent kind of thing,
but we were looking at a range of protein concentrations
in the food to see what happens. And you can see here that in the lower
levels of protein, dietary protein, from 4 to 10 percent
in this particular case, it’s not the exact amounts
I’m really concerned about here, it’s the inflection
that I want to talk about. But with up to about 10 percent
dietary protein, what you can see is that protein
is doing its good thing, it’s not creating cancer,
it’s not promoting cancer. Protein is an essential nutrient that
we need it, everything’s working fine. So what I’m talking about here
is when we consume it in excess to the amount we need and in fact,
most of us humans actually live in that red zone, where we’re consuming
an excess of what we need. So that 10 percent is enough,
really is enough and that actually have provided by a diet
made up of whole plant-based foods. If we’re consuming a diet
of whole plant-based foods, we’re actually getting the ideal levels
of protein, we don’t need more. But unfortunately 95 percent of us,
according to the national statistics, are consuming an excess of what we need and we do that by actually consuming
animal based foods. Now I just want to take you
to this notable idea here coming from these experiments
that I found very interesting. Just a little schematic,
so just treat as a schematic. I’ve just sort of given you two clusters
of cells, one cluster of the red cells, those are the ones,
let’s argue, let’s propose they’re the genetically programmed cells
that give rise to cancer, the seed has been planted.
The immunogenic event has occurred. OK there so there’s those are the cells
that have programmed to get cancer. The blue cells are normal cells. So on the left we’ve got a high dose, let’s say a high dose
of genetically prone cancer cells. On the right we’ve got far less of those,
just a little bit. Now if all else is considered equal, nothing else has changed
beyond that point, obviously the one with the highest dose
of the genetically programmed cancers we’re going to get more cancer,
fair enough. The ones on the right get less cancer. So in that particular case it’s legitimate
to say that genes cause cancer. All diseases really start with genes
at some fundamental level. So in this case we can say
genes cause cancer, sort of makes sense. However look what happens
when we get to that stage and now, you know our genes are constant
over a lifetime, more or less, but we go beyond the genes
if we look in this particular model here, it turns out that
if you take the cells in left where there is a very high degree
of genetic concentration of the cells, feed them the low protein diets
you get less cancer, not more. In other words you completely just
switch it, so what really matters here is not the genes, what’s mattering
in this particular case is the expression of those genes,
that in turn is controlled by nutrition and that is really
one of the most fundamental properties of nutrition across the board. Not just in this particular model, but in this particular model
was actually a key. It was a key, it was a lead in,
in fact to a larger consideration. So nutrition controls cancer genes,
it controls genes across the board, really quite interesting
for all kinds of diseases and so we could say
nutrition trumps genes. That’s my view and we have lots of
evidence now to really make that point. It’s something we can do about, rather than something
we can’t do anything about. And it turns out there’s a list
of these same positions again that all basically start with genes
controlled by nutrition. So I have a question in the current
conversation we’re having now, if nutrition controls genes then why are we spending
so much money for genetic research? In my estimation,
a rough approximation, we’re spending at least a hundred times the amount
of funding for genetic research that we do for nutrition research. When in fact it’s nutrition,
it’s nutrition that actually gives us the health,
it’s not the genes. Genetic research of course makes money or
at least there’s the perception of those who are making this money available
that in fact it’s doing that. Nutrition research only makes health. So it comes down to this,
how do we understand nutrition, as I said in the beginning, it’s about
looking at one nutrient at a time. And we see that every day,
the recommended dietary allowances, this nutrient, you need this much,
food labelling. It’s actually led to a vitamin supplement
industry as a matter of fact. At 30, more than 30 plus
billion dollar industry, we now know that nutrient supplements really don’t do
the job, that’s not what we need. I like to say
let’s call that an old paradigm. The practice of medicine is the same
sort of argument, at the present time our health system, our medical practice
system is reductionist in nature. We think about single causes, single
bio markers, you go to the doctor he tells you how much cholesterol
you have, how much blood sugar as if these are really things
that count, all by themselves. Or single diseases
that’s how we give them this international classification
of disease code, doctors get paid
according to what they diagnosed. By our thinking of health in terms of
one thing at a time in a very narrow little context like that, what it needs is
OK now we’re going to find one thing to cure things,
we make drugs with other side effects. That becomes the primary means
of health maintenance. So I’m going to suggest,
we’re at the threshold now, we can be at the threshold now
of actually transforming the entire healthcare system
and think of it in a different way. Think about what we can do
and that’s really about nutrition. There’s countless, as I said
that we have to think about nutrition this is a real challenge
to the way we do research and the way we think about things. Nutrition is not
a one-on-one kind of thing, it’s a collective thing, we call wholeism,
a holistic kind of idea. It’s really quite frankly an anathema as far as the scientific community’s
concerned, that’s at least my experience. But that’s what nutrition is, many disease
working as a symphony and interestingly, this is simple, it is very complex biology
but it’s a simple solution. Just decide what we should put
in your mouths, a whole food plant based diet, vegetables,
fruits, grains and legumes. Don’t add back the oil, fat and sugar,
it’s a lot cheaper, it really works. And as far as coming back to my initial
take, my initial thesis is concerned, we now have information,
empirical data to actually show that if you take a group of people, I’ve been involved
in a couple of these tests now. If you take a group of people
give them the right food, the things that happened to us whether
we have a disease or not are remarkable. You can see these things
within a week or two. Cholesterol goes down,
body weight drops off and I’m going to say that should be the future of medicine or
let’s say, I don’t like the word medicine, let’s say it’s the future of food
and the future of our health. Thank you. [APPLAUSE]

  1. Oh snap! T. Colin Campbell just quoted the 801010 Diet, a book by Doug Graham. I'm gonna have to pick that back up and finish it… ok so he didn't QUOTE it, but I am surprised to see him use that terminology of that caloronutrient ratio. Confirms my suspicions, time to go full vegan.

  2. This is the key element :PLANT MAKE THESE THINGS AND ANIMAL DO NOT MAKE THESE THINGS !!!! So clear, better listen folks.

  3. hey freelee:) i love your vids!! 
    i wonder if you could help me understand something that T.collin campell says about meat and plantfood: (Resolving the Health Care Crisis: T. Colin Campbel at TEDxEast-at 4:20). he say that animal food dont make vitamins? is this true? love from J:)

  4. What a shame with only 60k views!! 
    So i just read the dairy industry ditched the "Got Milk?" slogan and now its "Milk Life",, Very misleading.. tsktsk

  5. So very  profound that in a nation that spends our taxes under the pretense of protecting us, the food system, compilation of dietary guidelines, and Farm Bill expenditures, do nothing of the sort.  A nation based on consuming damaging products for sheer GDP, is a nation that ultimately consumes itself to death. A fascinating all be it eerie juxtaposition that our killing of animals in agony and pain, as every single slaughtered animal experiences, ends up our own misery and pain.. The media claiming other nations do not uphold journalistic freedom, never allow these issues over the airways.  We are victims of our own corporate media screening.  USDA should NOT be allowed to both promote animal ag while setting dietary guidelines. That IS why health has been compromised.

  6. I've been eating an 80/10/10 Raw til 4 Vegan diet for 3 weeks & I feel so good I can't imagine going back.  My friends & family keep asking "Don't you miss meat & cheese & eggs?"  & "well, you can cheat a couple times a week, right?" ….and I can honestly say NOPE.  I don't miss feeling physically sluggish & mentally foggy.  My body looks tighter & leaner, my house is cleaner & more organized, I'm excited to work out, I don't crave alcohol at all, & I'm satiated at night when I go to sleep.  I feel like I've been given my life back.

  7. Was isolated casein protein used to turn cancer on and off, or was is casein in the form of raw milk? Any tests for raw milk from an grass fed cow  against cancer?

  8. "in 30 years" … if the energy crisis and the climate crisis and the financial crisis is not solved, then there is no health crisis in "in 30 years" … simply because there ain't enough people left to have a health crisis … however I would suggest to fix the health crisis first, because it's the most easy to fix (just up your carbs at least to 80% and down your fats and protein to max 20%) and then people are strong enough to fix the other crisis-es

  9. my diet has been in the past (and now) mostly wholefood vegan food. Im overweight and feel okay. Not great. I started experimenting adding more protein with eggs chiken beef. Eggs made me feel horrible. The rest was fine. Im still fat. Now im wondering If I really should give paleo a try. Its not like what Im doing is working. Right now im doing the harvard pyramid pretty much. I can't portion control. Cravings are very strong. Rice, beans, protein with sauteed spinach =not filling. I eat at least 2-3 plates of that to feel at ease somewhat. I think rice, pasta, bread an beans are problematic foods for me. They dont satiate BEFORE I go over calorie limits. I feel quite lost really. And upset. 

  10. The first book about nutrition that I read was The China Study. I became vegan while reading it. As a guy I would not have stopped eating meat even if forced, but the facts in the book were too compelling.

  11. Many cultures around the world have used natural Herbs and foods not only to maintain health, but also cure illnesses. Chinese medicine is one example. Western medicine was born out of battle field needs, combined with scientific thought. Now we finally see Western medicine starting to look into food and nutrition to cure illnesses. 

  12. This is a great information. Very good illustrated. It is time to understand that plant based food is the solution! Solution for health, for  Mother Earth,  and for all people to get food, not only the rich ones.
    Thanks for doing this work! Just tell this is not enough, but now here is evidence, lots of research and  science!!
    Hopefully will this help people to abandon LCHF, low carb, high fat diets!

  13. thank you thank you dr. campbell for all of your work! brilliant man whose research is life changing, world changing in fact.

  14. "After 50 years of nutritional biochemical research, Campbell views casein as one of the most relevant chemical carcinogens ever identified. He’s critical of the Komen Foundation for ignoring the research and expanding its marketing income by putting pink ribbons on yogurt containers.”

  15. your body needs certain fats and proteins to function properly that's a real fact. "meat is not murder bad science is!


  17. Amazing..all the critics here.  Look at our country people.  I am 47 and can tell you that obesity is a f'in epidemic.  Hmmm, what could it be?  Heart attack is up, Cancer is up…Hmmm, I wonder.  I guess it was something in the water huh?  Bunch of dumbasses who don't want to recognize truth when they see it.  A billion people on the Pacific rim cannot be wrong.

  18. When I changed to plant-baeed, 80-10-10, I recovered from a disease not listed by Dr. Campbell, that is, the disease of multi-joint (2 knees, 2 hips, confirmed by x-ray) osteoarhtritis.  I was barely able to walk and needed all those joints replaced.  Without any joint replacements, now I have no pain on ambulation and walk most of the day with no ill effects–this change started from reading Dr. Campbell's first book, The China Study!  I idolize the man and feel a great deal of sadness about all the pain I endured all the years of omst of my life.

  19. GvxhdfjxvccnxvxbxnvcbchcvncncngvjBefore you marry someone ask your self, "Will they be a good killing partner during the
    Zombie apocalypse?"

  20. There is only ONE reason to be a vegan – you don't want to use animals for food. Fine, no problem.

    But once you start claiming that eating an egg from a free-range chicken once a month, or a piece of fish once a month, or putting milk in your coffee, or having a slice of cheese once a month, is going to kill you, then you are just a nut job loony.

  21. Read the Book People! See the facts and move on.  NO one is making you change your.. diet, he is trying to help you get and maintain health.  I do not understand why junk food addicts are so closed minded. He is a good person trying to help America! If you do not want to be helped, move on.  Allow those that are sick and in need of help, get it.

  22. Whoever made the subtitles is actually a big huge ignorant. OMG they wrote "jeans" instead of "genes"!!!!!!!!!!

  23. I liked the video but I didn't understand if he ever did the rat experiments on humans… I know it's illegal but animal tests usually fail on humans… Please everyone, tell me if I'm wrong. Hugs.

  24. I just watched other TEDx presentation by Dr. Sarah Hallberg, and she says basically the opposite of what he says about fats, and her patients are being cured of diabetes and other diseases. Go figure!
    Putting that aside, I would like to throw up in the air, one question, or more, for those who say that we should not eat animals or what comes from them. And I am surprised that I have not heard or read this question, or argument, that I think totally debunks all theories about vegetable diet being the right one. Here is one of the questions: what would happen to all of the animals population on the Planet, and consequently to us, if we stopped sacrificing them on behalf of our survival? To me, the answer is very clear: they would become the hunters and WE the hunted. It could very well be the end of the species (OUR). We all now that WE have exterminated several species from the face of the earth but, unlike animals, we think and, sometimes we have common sense and stop doing absurd things. I challenge anyone who can prove that animals will stop and think, before eating us all, if we don't kill them in self defense, to protect our lives… and once dead, what better thing to do, other than eating them to sustain our body? I don't see any other solution, because with over 6 billion of us in the planet we are having hard time feeding everybody, can you imagine if eliminate animals from our diet?
    I do believe, however, that cow's milk can do more harm than good. And there may be some other animal parts or products that could do the same, but, completely eliminating animals from our diet is insane.
    Show less

  25. Here's my critic. I love him by the way his work and the research of others convinced me to go vegan. 80-10-10 doesn't let you eat other filling nuttiest dense foods. Nuts, seeds, beans, fatty fruits like avocados, etcetera can all be part of a healthy diet. Obviously you don't eat a cup of nuts like you would oats. But I put a TB in my oats every morning with 2 prices of fruit, cocoa, vanilla, and a TB of chia seeds. These fatty foods keep you filling full and have lots of nutrients you can't get from food that are mostly carbs. My macros tend to be 60% carbs, 30% fat, and 10% protein. I haven't found any long term 80-10-10 diet studies and my diet works best for me. From what I've learned through reading studies and long as you're eating whole plant food and not too many calories you're fine.

  26. Out of approximately 111,000 people, we have 1,525 likes and 30 dislikes. I presume the dislike's are in the category of meat industry competitors, an/or people who dislike education.

  27. After have becoming Plant Based from a listening to doctors like this Man, I am starting to become concerned about the health of My Parents. As a Christian, I have been raised to believe that God put animals on this planet for us to slaughter and eat, but I believe that is a load of BS that my parents pull up at the dinner table to justify their habits. My mom is on multiple medications and my father is Pre-Diabetic. Whenever I talk to them with such confidence about being able to completely restore their health on a plant based diet, they look and basically laugh at me like I am crazy, but it is not my wish to see them get worse or possibly suffer serious health issues because of their uneducated mind- sets. I'd really like it if someone who is older, could offer advice on how I can help my parents transition to this diet in a compassionate and informative fashion. I love them to death, I want to see them thrive.

  28. Remember when you're parents told you to eat your vegetables so you stay healthy and strong? Why the hell were they feeding me meat, dairy, and eggs? To keep me unhealthy and weak?

  29. Physicians make mistakes in 50% of their diagnostics and make mistakes in 50% of their prescriptions according to medicine Professor dr Robert Mendelsohn, Chicago University.

  30. I would like to first apologize to Dr. Campbell, for the simple fact that I nearly skipped over this video based entirely on the title. Thinking that this was just a lecture based on an opinion on improving the healthcare system, I was pleasantly surprised to see a healthy, elderly man sharing his facts about how the right diet can improve my own health significantly. A healthcare system that currently does not stress or display these facts enough, does not allow the communities to know the health benefits proper nutrition can provide. For instance, Dr. Campbell's statement about how eating whole plant-based foods can help prevent and cure diseases, was astounding to me. His intent of showing his audience the benefits of changing their diets to more nutritional ones, definitely shows beneficence. By encouraging a diet that shows significant results in treating illnesses, Dr. Campbell makes a strong case for me to make the switch.

  31. Dr. Campbell, I struggled with anorexia nervosa for thirty years, absolutely terrified of gaining weight. All I had to do was look around and see what eating did to people…but I learned from your research in The China Study that my fears were unfounded. I read the book, quite by accident, right as I was coming out of the inpatient unit of an eating disorders program. It has saved my life. Then, when Forks Over Knives came out, I bought ten copies and distributed them to everyone I care about. I am spreading your knowledge…thank you from the bottom of my heart. You are truly my hero. 💕

  32. Today, it's even bad to eat plants! Today, you have to buy organic plants to get good nutrition, because if you eat just regular plants, your getting tons of chemicals that have been sprayed on those plants. Study up on the organic companies that aren't in bed with Monsanto, and eat organic plants, without tons of herbicides, pesticides, etc. Or grow your own organics, and you'll see a difference in your health!

  33. Genetic Research….has made GMO's (genetically modified organism) which is in almost everything you eat from the grocery store. All dairy products are bad.. Factory farmed animals are given antibiotic shots (because they live in filth), hormone shots (to make them grow fatter…faster), and are fed GMO grain. This all goes into you, when you drink milk, eat cheese, ice cream, etc. Eat and drink only organic, from animals that are grass fed, without all those shots. Find organic almonds, or other nuts, and learn how, from youtube, to make your own organic almond milk, or other nut milk. Silk is a brand of almond milk and other dairy products, but their in bed with Monsanto, along with a few other major organic brands. Do your homework on organic brands! If you switch to eating and drinking nothing but pure organics, your whole life will turn around! Study up on three major words…organics, GMO's, and Monsanto….and you'll be ahead of a lot of people, who aren't paying attention to what's in regular grocery store food, while their getting fat, and sick!

  34. The most recent comments are certainly supportive of Campbell, as they should be, due to the fact that he has over three decades of professional experience in the field of biochemistry and nutrition…. Way more than any youtube commenter unquestionably haha.

  35. I am alive and well today because of his science. His information has helped me thrive and overcome 2 heart attacks and 2 different types of cancer. The Holistic Holiday at Sea is coming up in a month and you have a chance to spend 8 days with him eating wonderful, healthy food, listening to the most successful lifestyle medicine doctors in the world. See you there? Dr. Flora Mason Van Orden, certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from eCornell and Nutrition in Clinical Practice, from George Washington University Medical Center.

  36. On the topic of cancer, could it be that substituting plant for animal foods simply increases the amount of phytonutrients consumed which is what is really reducing the incidence of cancer (and not different types of protein per se).

  37. My grandma is vegan for a 40 years by now. She is 84 and she has never ever had any health problems. She doesn't even wear glasses. She's more active and vigorous than most of my friends (and I'm 21).

    It's an amazing thing how we can use our diet to maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle. Good luck to all of you!
    And greetings from Poland 🙂

  38. Over 15% of US GDP is healthcare. It's a huge industry. The easiest way to corrupt someone is with money. I wouldn't expect this industry to be without its own level of corruption. Doing your own research into the subject of nutritional health rather than depending on mainstream healthcare is the best way to start preventative healthcare.

  39. amazing talk!!!! everyone should watch and educate themselves on this topic!! ever since I sent whole food plant-based, I've never felt better. this way of lifestyle is perfect for people who love to eat, like me!!!


  41. I really do respect this man , because of him I have became a vegan for a month now and I'm feeling that I was just born a month ago , can't thank him enough

  42. This makes sense. However, where is the money in it? There is a lot of money selling vitamin A supplements or making rice produce it via DNA manipulation. But there is not a lot of money selling a carrot- The best option amongst the three I mentioned. This is unfortunately the price you pay for a capitalist world where money is more important than millions of lives lost slowly.

  43. High protein intake activates igf-1 and mTOR, growth factors. So yes, at high dosage, protein seems to activate cancer genes

  44. Americans should get out of the country for a few days to realise what massive epidemic of obesity it is inflicted with.

  45. Wow I'm so happy to heard that , always I'm eating fresh and natural , I Been meet a lot people around the world with a lot sick problem like cancer diabetes and etc a help them with natural medicine and all them now the have a new life and new star fresh to eating good , so if any one have any problems left me know I will love to help you ,have a blessing day God bless you

  46. So glad Dr. Campbell's work is getting the coverage it deserves. Veganism is the only way forward for us as humans.

  47. Before buying on gearbest, know that it's thieves.
    They do not repay,
    on google search for "Thieves Gearbest".

  48. Of course prescription drugs are a leading cause of death, they'll lead to Chronic Kidney Disease and eventually Renal Failure which is seen in many people who've taken lots of medication throughout their lives.

  49. I have never been so confused about eating Vegan or LCD … You hear so many things in search of health who do you trust there all Dr's

  50. Lets not oversell the vegan aspect of this dietary change. Dr. Campbell's real motto, should be, "Go plant-based!"

  51. Just read Dr. Campbell's newer book " Whole-Rethinking the science of nutrition". I read " The China Study" in 2010, was totally convinced, and have been following WFPB diet since , my health has been turned around for the best ( from took 8 Rx drugs to now taking none- not even Tylenol ) . I cannot praise Dr. Campbell enough for his brilliance , integrity and compassion for the goodness of mankind. If people don't take heed to follow his ideas and reasons to adapt to " plant based whole food, " after listening to this lecture, they are not serious about their health , and have to endure all the ill consequences of the SAD ( Standard American Diet) like millions of people around the world even with the best health insurance.

  52. Super interesting. But is there any mention of what else the rats were eating? It’s pretty important to know if the rats being fed a high protein diet were also eating high carbohydrates like a meal mixed with protein plus corn. That would completely change the findings because the increase could be due to something like corn – one of the most genetically modified foods on our planet.

  53. In the "blue zones" of the world where people exclusively eat plant-based diets without using oils such as Okinawa, some areas of Italy, etc live to be 100. Heart disease and cancer is very rare.

  54. Why does he say there are no vitamins in animal products? What about vitamin A in butter, etc.? B vitamins in meat and egg yolks, such as thiamine in pork, and B12. I'm all for plant-based diets, but it seems to me inaccurate to say animal products contain no vitamins.

  55. Went vegan on August 24, 2017 and haven't looked back. Down almost 80 pounds and haven't 'dieted' one day! I eat beans, veggies, fruit and complex carbohydrates when I'm hungry. The change in me was so drastic, that my 'meat and potatoes' husband decided to try it on January 1, 2018. He's still vegan and plans on being so, (as do I) for the rest of our lives. My husband's A1C dropped from 7.5 to 6 in less than 6 months! Just stop and think about that! Anyone that understands A1C will tell you that this is drastic!

    This gentleman and Dr. Esselstyn's work has added years to my husband's and my life! Dr. Campbell's story about his mother in law lets me know what a good heart he and his family have. LOVE him and Dr. Esselstyn!

  56. Quite frankly, right now – the government should do the same thing it does to emission regulations. Everybody gets 5 years to clean up their act. Afterwards, we're shutting down all the hospitals leaving one per county for emergency medicine. The rest will be turned into gyms! THIS VIDEO IS FREE! Unless you are in a jungle someplace there's no reason to show up at a hospital in 5 years with any of those diseases!

  57. Plant-based for Life. Thank you to awesome, intelligent, and kind people spreading the word such as Dr. T. Colin Campbel. Let's all eat healthily everyday; it's our basic right. Go VEGAN!

  58. We need to get the word out and save alot of people dying at the hands of a healthcare system which is supposed to be saving them. For us developing countries who have health systems which are heavily dependent on donor aid (over 90%), we are screwed!!!!

  59. 50k p/y Household Effective income impact before basic housing expenses. Tax Rate(10%) + healthcare premium(12-25k) 34% for individuals, 60% for families! We’re already paying for this, one way or another! HR 676 MFA!

  60. Dr.Campbell, on 4:18 you mention that there are no vitamins in animal. but wait a minute.. I am no expert and I admire your work and research and your transparent, objective and empiric approach to the nutrition. But quick search on google find me :

    There are 3 vitamins that do not exist in plant foods.

    Vitamin B12

    Vitamin D3

    Vitamin K2

    Vitamin A – It is approximately 20 times more bioavailable in animal-based food than plant foods.

    In fact, plant foods don’t actually have any vitamin A. They have carotenoids which have to be converted to Vitamin A.

    Vitamin B – Animal-based foods are the best source of B Vitamins. Vitamin B12 is exclusively found in animal-based foods.

    Vitamin C – Plant-based foods are a better source of vitamin C. Does it matter? (Hint: Yes and No.)

    Vitamin D – Plants don’t contain Vitamin D3 (the form our body needs). Sun and meat is our answer here.

    Plants have Vitamin D2, and our body can convert some D2 to D3

    Vitamin E – Plant-based foods have higher concentrations of vitamin E. And for good reason. A plant-based diet requires additional protection from oxidation of PUFA which Vitamin E helps provide through its antioxidant properties. It’s still found in adequate supply in meat.

    Vitamin K – Both plant and animal foods have the K1 version; however, plants don’t have K2 which is vital for human life.

    K2 also has numerous forms. The essential kind we need is MK-4, which is only in animal food. We can convert some K1 to MK-4 but generally not enough to meet our needs.

    I want to believe you reached your conclusion to vegetable based diet purely based on the science. But, when I look at the above, aren't you a bit biased about animal food?

    I understand your main point is that animal protein increases cholesterol and cholesterol is very strong indicator for all sorts of cancer, heart and other diseases. And I believe you backed up with numerous research, which I am still finding out through your booke (one of which is the caesin study in the China study)

    I still think animal protein in a moderation is good for you.

    What logic am I missing here? can you enlighten me?

  61. I read The China Study on a long trip to Japan, could not put it down. Dr. Campbel has produced a wonderful work here, since the release many years ago much has been discovered both for and against his work. We now look at nutrition as a network for good health it is and focus on wellness we know much more about how to put this together… Epigenetics ?

  62. I lost 15 Kg over about 6 months having all-plant-based-food . My BMI changed

    from 24 to 19.1 and I had my high pressure blood almost gone (thanks to the new

    standard,it's near the potential range). I now expect I can live up to my 90s.

    All thanks to Dr T. Colin Campbell.

  63. I have parkinsons disease being have been on a plant diet for more than a year no change would love to get of my medication please can U give me advice
