DESCRIPTION: By age 10, nearly all kids have fatty streaks in their arteries This is the first sign of atherosclerosis, the leading cause of death in the United States. So the question for most of us is not whether we should eat healthy to prevent heart disease, but whether we want to reverse the heart disease we may already have.

Given the importance of this message, I encourage folks to please share this video with those in your circles. I know it's scary, but hope it's empowering at the same time. The bottom line is that we have tremendous control over our medical destinies.

How do we go about reversing our heart disease? I address that exact question in my new live annual review presentation More Than an Apple a Day ( ). Or, for shorter snippets:

• Resuscitating Medicare ( )
• Eliminating the #1 Cause of Death ( )
• China Study on Sudden Cardiac Death ( )
• Our Number One Killer Can Be Stopped ( )
• Heart Attacks and Cholesterol: Purely a Question of Diet ( )
• Trans Fat, Saturated Fat, and Cholesterol: Tolerable Upper Intake of Zero ( )

Heart disease is a choice.

  1. Diet variability? Please familiarize yourself w/ Esselstyn’s clinical
    results & regimen as well as that of T. Colin Campbell’s , including his
    studies on casein & dairy in particular. & the effect of war is well
    documented when during WW2 heart disease went DOWN dramatically following
    the Nazi’s seizure of cows, chickens & dairy sources! So despite the your
    imagined beliefs, the whole plant low fat moderated sugar regimen sans
    meat, eggs and dairy works just fine..

  2. “But talk cholesterol and ignore inflammatory sugar, or hydroginated fats,
    no.” He’s not, he hits on all these other topics in other videos. Please
    watch more videos : ))

  3. Yes, other videos definitely. I watch them all and subscribe to email
    downloads. When we go back in time and isolate a single marker without it’s
    causes, readers might get the mis-impression they need a statin drug to
    control that marker…never pausing to consider the Crisco and sugar
    ladened slices of Better Homes and Gardens that are forever at the source
    of it all.

  4. Pasteurization was introduced in the US many years prior to WWII. While it
    was available, unpasteurized milk is chemical napalm. Unless you own your
    own cow, and even if it is disease free, it still is dangerous. While I
    agree that people should be given the right to choose, provided they are
    warned of the possible dangers, and provided that the milk is heavily
    tested to prevent possible contamination or infection, it would seem far
    safer to simply introduce probiotics into the milk itself.

  5. CTVB- corporations already add stuff to their foods like synthetic
    vitamins. If you’ve ever talked to farmers or been on the farm, you’ll
    discover that there are milk tanks for milk the absolutely has to be
    pasteurized because of the way it was collected (a reflection of the ethics
    of that particular farmer) and there are tanks another farmer will draw
    milk from for his family’s kitchen table. That’s the safest and highest
    quality source.

  6. Thank you, changed my whole families diet to an organic raw diet! I am very
    lucky that I found this out while my husband and I are in our yearly
    twenties and while are kids are four and two!

  7. Coronary artery disease starting in childhood, is the tip of the iceberg in
    terms of health problems form Standard American Diet. I so wish I could get
    my own children to take this more seriously. Thankfully my wife is on
    board. Great information. Thanks Doctor G. 

    1. According to http://www.doctorbing.com, the few most important things one
      needs to do when ever heart attack symptoms are identified is to give the
      right first aid to the patient, before any medical assistance arrives.
      There are some important once we shall discuss. First and foremost, the
      patient needs to relax and come out of stress. All tight clothes must be
      loosened, medicines like aspirin are given so that any clot in the blood so
      that there is a proper flow of blood to the heart. In case the pain does
      not subside within 2-3 minutes, then one must rush to the doctor. CPR
      should be given to the patient in the mean time to revive the heart. Basic
      heart attack treatment is available in all hospitals, whether big or small.
      Most of them start with doing an ECG, which tells how the heart is
      functioning.

  8. This topic is so very important, certainly one of your videos that
    every-fucking-body should see.
    I mean, the problem was already there 60 years ago … but now it’s 2015,
    and my generation is stupid, living for entertainment and fun only, eating
    meat and junk food like crazy … where will this lead us to? Huge
    problems, that’s for sure. An insane amount of death, suffering and
    sadness. People need to wake up ffs …

    1. +AxCYeR
      Huge problems ? One could make the reverse argument that we grow older than
      any generation before us, *because* of the junk food and meat.Our life
      expectancy has nearly doubled over the course of a century.
      Why not increase our meat consumption if we apply Dr.Gregers patented logic
      of correlation = causation ?

    2. Firstly, obviously, we live longer because medical technology. Secondly,
      according to your logic, quality of life and quantity of life are
      equivalent? Living longer but living with more chronic health problems and
      more obesity (now in childhood) is acceptable? Especially when most of
      these aliments are preventable through behavioral and societal changes?
      Please, try to think more critically without just criticizing blindly.
      Thank you and good day, random mindless Youtube troll.

  9. There are some states, I work in one of them, where we the medical
    community are required to start drawing blood for a Cholesterol levels
    starting at age 2 due to the high fat diet fed routinely to children, the
    Standard American Diet.
    In America, 2/3 of Americans are either Overweight or OBESE, the high fat,
    saturated fat, and dairy (bovine milk products) intake has induced an
    Alarming increase in Diabetes Type 2 and Type 1.
    Right now in America, the average lifespan of a child being born today, is
    shorter than their Grandparents.
    With all the science and knowledge so very available to Americans, in an
    act of narcissistic stubbornness, 95% of Americans still force their young
    children to eat meat/dairy/eggs thus causing their children a much higher
    ‘all cause mortality’ rate, a life of pain, chronic disease, and a
    decreased quality of life. We have just got to start loving our children
    more than that….

    1. The food is extremely addictive, making it difficult to break free from.
      Most don’t even know it is addictive, or what foods are not addictive.
