One in a Thousand: Ending the Heart Disease Epidemic

Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at and get a free excerpt from his latest NYT Bestseller HOW NOT TO DIE. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from his books, DVDs, and speaking go to charity).

DESCRIPTION: Many of our most common diseases found to be rare or even nonexistent among populations eating plant-based diets.

If all a plant-based diet could do was reverse our #1 killer (see also my last video, Cavities and Coronaries: Our Choice, ), then shouldn't that be the default diet until proven otherwise? And then the fact that it also appears to reverse other leading killers like diabetes and hypertension just makes the evidence overwhelming. See my last two live presentations if you haven't yet, Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death ( ) and More Than an Apple a Day ( ).

So why doesn't the medical profession embrace it? See The Tomato Effect ( ).

So why don't many individual doctors do it? See Lifestyle Medicine: Treating the Causes of Disease ( ).

So why doesn't the federal government recommend it? See The McGovern Report ( ).

But you can take your destiny into your own hands (mouth?) and work with your doctor to clean up your diet and maximize your chances of living happily ever after.

  1. Dr. Gregor,
    Please don’t use facts and logic in an attempt to get people who eat a
    deadly diet to change their ways. It only disrupts their brains, leading to
    increased mental disorders. ;-}

  2. Glad I came across your channel. However, be careful. You are exposing
    things that could lead to drastic profit losses for many areas of business
    that have money to burn.

  3. In one of my first videos, sort of a blending of “Forks Over Knives” with
    “sh*t barefoot runners say” by Steven Sashen, I was trying to figure out an
    entertaining or less painful way of pointing out some of the problems
    caused by standard American diet, SAD, which 90 to 98% of Americans are on.
    The video is “sh*t a barefoot vegan endurance runner says”. Forest Gump
    inspired a way to do this. It’s tough to try to inform people without it
    sounding as if blame for disease is being placed.

    Support nutritionfacts.org imo… I finally donated some cash last night.
    Knowledge is POWER. Eat plants. Run. Be happy.

  4. Hi Doctor, love your videos but i’m a little confused.. im looking on site
    that had 2011 WHO data on coronary heart disease deaths and had Uganda come
    in at rank 69 with more deaths per 100k people than USA with rank 135. Do
    you know whats going on?

    1. The studies he’s referring to are from a certain time period, more than 50
      years ago – you might have current stats. Immigration and diet influence
      now would make the stats way different.

    2. The number of deaths from CHD might be the wrong figure to look at.
      Treatment for the disease will be far superior in the US, and the
      corresponding death rate will be lower as a result.

  5. To take the analogy further, most doctors today would claim that falling
    off the cliff had nothing to do with the patient’s injuries. And as for
    those not falling off the cliff, well it certainly has nothing to do with
    the fence.

  6. Hello! Have you ever tried – Super Simotos Diabetes U Turn (should be on
    google have a look)? Ive heard some decent things about it and my BF got
    excellent Diabetes reversal with it.
