    Heard greger has started eating meat again from several people.

  3. Vegetto Blue says:

    Not the frozen one tho

  4. Jairo Cuadra says:

    …put it to the test!

  5. Hannah Ruthy says:

    Literally eating blueberries and pomegranate topped oatmeal as I watch this 😋

  6. Ronnie & Minh says:

    Dr. Greger could save a lot of time and money by just telling everyone to go on a raw food diet.

  7. RohanOf ElvenPower says:

    Those blueberries in your picture are not natural. I have consumed real natural blueberries and I know what theyre like. These ones in the pic are acidic in taste. The purple juice is totally unatural. Some are also slightly green. The meat should white, juiceless, have specific blueberry taste and a couple cups of them should be like a mild pre-workout powder. They should also boost vision like – Immediatly!!!. Those purple weakling, acidic and almost tasteless "blueberries" are an attrocity of modern agriculture.

    Thanks! 🌝

  10. Christopher O'Grady says:

    30g? A cup? (Whatever that means)
    I’m on at least 200g of berries a day, usually blueberries

  11. Dean Nicolle says:

    1/2 cup Blueberries in my oatmeal each day. I pick them locally where they are abundant all over the area I live in. Free and Pesticide free.

  12. lightdark00 says:

    Is anyone getting YouTube recommending them videos of zero backed up claims that we need to eat meat? YouTube started this on me and I don't think I watched anything to trigger it. I think it's also using what I write in comments 😱

  13. Emily BH says:

    It isn't just blueberries it is ALL BERRIES. Listen to Dr. Robert Morse.

    Additionally, all of you who are still eating cereal with your blueberries are dampening the effects of the blueberries. If you want the benefits, eat them by themselves or with other berries/

  14. Eelke Aptroot says:

    I used to load up on coffee before exams, once up to the point I started hearing voices in my head, this was after downing about 2 litres in about 2 hours though. Guess I should have been going for blueberries…

  15. Dann says:

    Thoughts on Whole wheat pasta?

    Benefits of meat on the brain!

  19. JESSE B says:

    Don't really know how to take this video message, it showed bad research on berries back in the day and known it's showing good research on berries, I guess 20 year's from known the research will be bad again, it'll be about something they missed or something they found, nowadays you gotta really do your own personal experimental research, at least your know the truth!

  20. Eddy Solla says:

    Does it matter if there frozen Barrie’s?

  21. TheSUPERHAPPY1 says:

    I’ve heard Saskatoon Berries are even more nutritious with even more anti oxidants. Try them if you see them 💜

  22. Candle Duck says:

    I like Saskatoon Berries even better than Blueberries

  23. Apostolado Petrino says:

    what about strawberries?

  24. Think 4 Yourself says:

    I eat 3-4 cups a day, because they taste good.

  29. Brent Stanford says:

    Great info, but the 1st 2 minutes was a big waste of time. This video should have been 2 1/2 minutes, lol.

  30. Gershon Pollatschek says:

    I love your videos, your books, your website. But cut out the silly stuff at the beginning. It's childish and turns off viewers. Thanks.

  31. Educate Society says:

    Wow! I'm gonna plant some blueberries in my backyard now 😂

  32. Citizenthirteen says:

    Eating a WFPB diet will prevent the cognitive decline in the first place. Stop the arteries in your brain from clogging and you won't need cups of blueberries to delay the decline by only 2.5 years. You won't have much of a decline to deal with ……ever.

  33. Spartan Elf says:

    that feeling of watching dr greger's videos and knowing stuff that no one will ever believe if you said it

  40. m0L3ify says:

    3:11 I know they list the P-value as being less than .05 there, but those error bars are overlapping *quite* a bit…I wonder if they calculated the SEM properly or if they just let the software pick a random type of error to graph?

  42. JayBigDadyCy says:

    I love blueberries! I eat them with my breakfast every morning. About a cup.

  43. Mitch Earleywine says:

    OMG! I've been teaching that y-axis trick since 1991. THANK YOU SO MUCH! We've gotta spread the word on this nonsense when it comes to presenting data.

  44. DMT says:

    Glial cells growth in the brain is promoted by the anthocyanin in purple/blue foods.

  45. rhoharane says:

    What's a good substitute/the next best thing? Especially asking for parts of the world closer to the equator and far from blueberry-growing places.

    Position of the American Dietetic Association: vegetarian diets.
    It is the position of the American Dietetic Association that appropriately planned vegetarian diets, including total vegetarian or vegan diets, are healthful, nutritionally adequate, and may provide health benefits in the prevention and treatment of certain diseases. Well-planned vegetarian diets are appropriate for individuals during all stages of the life cycle, including pregnancy, lactation, infancy, childhood, and adolescence, and for athletes. A vegetarian diet is defined as one that does not include meat (including fowl) or seafood, or products containing those foods. This article reviews the current data related to key nutrients for vegetarians including protein, n-3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, iodine, calcium, and vitamins D and B-12. A vegetarian diet can meet current recommendations for all of these nutrients. In some cases, supplements or fortified foods can provide useful amounts of important nutrients. An evidence- based review showed that vegetarian diets can be nutritionally adequate in pregnancy and result in positive maternal and infant health outcomes. The results of an evidence-based review showed that a vegetarian diet is associated with a lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease. Vegetarians also appear to have lower low-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, and lower rates of hypertension and type 2 diabetes than nonvegetarians. Furthermore, vegetarians tend to have a lower body mass index and lower overall cancer rates. Features of a vegetarian diet that may reduce risk of chronic disease include lower intakes of saturated fat and cholesterol and higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, soy products, fiber, and phytochemicals. The variability of dietary practices among vegetarians makes individual assessment of dietary adequacy essential. In addition to assessing dietary adequacy, food and nutrition professionals can also play key roles in educating vegetarians about sources of specific nutrients, food purchase and preparation, and dietary modifications to meet their needs.''

    Wow I'm going to eat blueberries before the bar exam 😉 So cool! Thanks Dr Greger!

  48. Holzkohlen says:

    Luckily my niece loves blueberries. I also enjoy them with self-made banana and raspberry ice cream.

  49. Nmethyltransferase says:

    I'm guessing they're the same sort of pathologists (and medical examiners) who eat lunch in the lab!

  50. Nataly RAW says:

    the only downside is they rot your teeth fast

  51. Christopher Korvin says:

    Amebic liver abscesses characteristically adhere to the underside of the diaphragm and then burst into the overlying lung whereupon the patient coughs up the contents of the abscess.This isnt always what happens but it is common. A patient of mine who did this said "Its funny, doc,my sputum tastes of liver " !

  52. Héctor Daniel Ambriz Villalobos says:

    What about berries plus creatine for a healthy neuroplastisity !!

  53. Rowena Anderson says:

    I saw the title of this and got excited as I prepared to eat my oats with blueberries. 44 seconds in and he's putting me off lol I hope this gets better.

  54. Corvux IX says:

    Dr. Vocal Fry

  55. Maxim C. says:

    The real question is how enormous is the difference between wild, naturally produced blueberries and those industrially produced ones… In nutritional values, not to mention in taste.

  56. Wendi Froedge says:

    Okay, so I used to work in a post-op urology unit. I never looked at wine the same way after calling my TURP patient’s urine as “Rose” and “Cabernet” … 🤢

  57. Joey Harshaw says:

    Can you do a reply to Jeff nippards interview on vegan science?

  58. gchanger3 says:

    💖…until….now!! A daily dose of your findings Dr. Greger and my day is complete 😊

  59. James says:

    How can this conclusions be made? It's not like you can give people blueberries that aren't blueberries for the control.

  60. Suzana Josic says:

    I usually have a couple of bags of blueberries in the freezer for my oatmeal🙂

  64. Cathie Y says:

  65. Sree Ss says:

    Incredible stuff, God bless you , the good doctor !!

  66. White Ninja says:

    The effectiveness of blueberry research could only be improved by more dramatic statistical readings.

  67. Rashna Maya says:

    Hello Dr.Greger love this channel, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE I BEG YOU could you do an video about Keratosis Pilaris and diet? Or anyway too improve its aperance internally or externally. PLEASE from someone that has bad KP and because of it has low self-esteem.

  68. 2ubelazy says:

    The graph at 3:11… Aren't there only 2 data points with error bars that allow the trend observed to be reversed according to experimental uncertainty?

  69. Phat Vegan says:

    There is a gentleman Yosef, he has a farm in Peyton Colorado U.S. Ahavah Farm, he Farms completely chemical-free, which means he cannot be classified as an organic farm. But he supplies the best vegetables I've ever tasted in my life, and on the Brix scale he's getting higher numbers than what you find in the store. I'm wondering if this would translate into healthier food. It would be awesome to see him scale up to feed tens of thousands which he is talked about. But his customer base and funding is not there at this point in time. But this would be an interesting thing to see a study done on. And since organic does use chemicals I'm pretty sure there hasn't been a study done on chemically free food compared to intentionally sprayed food.?

  72. Rawmatt says:

    The more science investigates and the more studies we do, the more in line Biblical scriptures prove themselves in alignment with man and diet.

    can you review studies on paprika for us.

  77. David Antos says:

    Does anybody talk about the cancerous PESTICIDES inside regular supermarket vegetables and fruits?
    Arent they dangerous for humans? By eating a plant based diet, you must consume a lot of those chemicals (fertilizers, pesticides)…

    Im tryin to go VEGAN, but this is a topic thats kind of holding me back.

  78. Eddy Solla says:

    How about frozen vegetables what’s up with that?
