Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death...

Normally I don’t post videos, but I came across this one tonight and I felt compelled to share it. Dr. Gregor talks about the top 15 leading cause of death, what causes them and how they can be prevented, and treated. It’s all stuff vegans have known for years backed up by the latest scientific studies and the longest running study on vegetarianism/veganism ever conducted.

It's one thing to read this information in a magazine, book or blog, or to see it on the news or to just ‘know it’ but to see it laid out so blatantly and unobtrusively with facts, figures, charts, and diagrams is quite another. It’s more mind-blowing in my opinion. Harder to ignore.

Though this video is just shy of an hour, I think it’s extremely important that it be watched and shared. Especially if you have a history of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, liver disease, kidney disease, COPD, high blood pressure, Alzheimer’s etc... particularly if you’re not a vegan or a vegetarian. If you can’t commit to watching the entire video I implore you to at least watch the first ten minutes. They discuss heart disease and cancer.

Some of my favorite quotes from the video

 “Eating just a quarter of a chicken breast can triple your risk of cancer.” 

“Vegans fight cancer 8 times better then non-vegans.” 

“Prescription drugs kill over 100,000 Americans a year from side effects, not abuse or overdose.”
