    Unlike animals. Humans and primates don’t produce vitamin C. Big link to heart disease to vitamin C deficiency based on damage repair in most stressed arteries in the body the heart. The blocking at the heart being the arteries in a constant state of repair plaque build up. The guy who linked this got two Nobel prizes during his career. But as heart surgery is a billion dollar industry your not going to hear this very often.

    Canola oil and soy bean oils both toxic

    I take about 20-30 supplements a day. My chelated multi-mineral, methyl-B 50, extra benfotiamine & allithiamine & niacin. Extra B-12 and folate 3 days a week. Tyrosine, DLPA, citrulline, alanine & acetyl-l-carnitine on gym days 4 days a week. Ferrous gluconate usually 3 days a week. Vitamins D & K most days. Vitamins A&E maybe 2-3 times a week. Vitamin C usually just 1 mega dose a week. Lutein. Digestive enzymes. I also do extra copper normally 2mg, 3 times a week cause my HTMA was super low in copper. Then of course fish oils. I started doing this at around age 28 I began having really bad joint pain in my back, neck & ankle. Also was getting hypertension & high blood sugar. And was extremely fatigued most of the time. After 10 yrs of supplementing I no longer get any joint pain at all anywhere. My hypertension is gone. And now I’ve gone from high blood sugar to LOW blood sugar. My blood sugar use to spike to 120-130 after a meal. Now it goes from like 60 premeal to 80-90 1-2 hrs after eating. Then shoots back down fast within 2-3 hrs. Then I have to eat again or I get dizzy. I suspect I might have to lower my vitamins/minerals as I’m too hungry too often and it’s hard to keep my blood sugar elevated. Energy is also much better the only thing that really hasn’t improved is sleep. I just never sleep great no matter what it seems.

    Just walk 15 miles a day and you can eat anything you want. In Japan 90 lb women wolf down stacks of 12 pancakes, with ice cream, whipped cream, fruit, butter syrup, and chocolate. And they never gain weight. There is no heart disease in Japan. http://tenmintokyo.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/IMG_4017-1.png

    It is incorrect to pick on a particular nutrient and nominate it because people will just stress that nutrient an tend to ignore the other important nutrient that treats a particular condition because of the Linus Pauling effect on that nutrient as the media is famous for its sensationalising.

  11. Frank Wilson on September 20, 2022 at 6:59 am

    I will love to share my testimony here with you all and Please forward to your love ones as well.  I was diagnosed with herpes 7 month ago the Doctor told me there was no cure to this infection, l was only given antiviral Herpevex Acyclovir 800mg for 5days, 5times daily, the doctor said it will not kill the virus ,only slowing it a bit from spreading to other part.  l was on this for the past 4months no improvement. So there was a day l came across with a testimony from a friend, so l contacted this man on getting his herbal remedy for this infection, which l paid for and received medicine after a week and some days with instruction on how to take medicine attacked. I take medicine for 2weeks before going to the hospital for test…l can show to you now that am herpes free! . I fully believed there is a herbal cure for herpes now.l am also using this means to inform you out there to get yours as well!..  contact Dr. Bali via Email:(drbalihome@gmail.com

    I listened intently to learn what I could but then I was dismayed when I heard Dr. Sesso refer to taking a statin to lower cholesterol. Does he not know that statins do not provide a benefit beyond reducing inflammation which is usually not the reason for prescribing. Does he not know that the majority of people that die from CHD have what is termed low or normal LDL Level. Does he not know that statins do more harm than good. Does he not know that the body supplements LDL when and as required. Does he not know that the body is far more intelligent than he. Does he not know that a poor diet that oxidizes LDL is the problem. Does he not know that Vitamin "C" is no more natural than C6H8O6 that is made by combining corn starch and sulfuric acid than is (5R)-5-[(1S)-1,2-Dihydroxyethyl]-3,4-dihydroxy-2(5H)-furanone, made by nature.

  22. Helen _ Patrick on September 20, 2022 at 7:15 am

    I am so happy today. I was diagnosed with Herpes simplex virus 1 & 2 seven years ago I lived in pain with the knowledge that I wasn’t going to ever be well again because my family Doctors and dermatology told me that there was no cure, but I needed to be normal and get my life back. I contacted so many herbal doctors on this issue and wasted a large sum of money but my condition never got better I was determined to get my life back so one day I saw Mrs. Carol’s post on youtube under a video titled "How to get rid of Herpes virus Fast". and how Dr.Aloha saved Her from HSV2 with herbal medicine I contacted Dr.Aloha through his email: Alohaherbalhome@gmail.com we spoke on the issue I told him all that I went through and he told me not to worry that everything will be fine again and that he will help me. so he prepared the medicine and sent it to me through UPS courier delivery service with instructions on how to use it, after 14 days of usage I went to see the doctor for a test, the results came out Herpes 1&2 negative, I am so thankful now. this testimony is real. thanks to Dr. Aloha God bless you. you can also call/text: +1(202) 871-3222.

    I almost believed this talks until the coconut oil.
    I was lead to believe canola oil is very good and its what i used in my cooking for 10 years.
    10 years later I had inflamation, high cholesterol, bad health and was put on statins, and my wife on hypertension medicines.
    I made research and switched to virgin coconut oil, vit C 2g/day and less sugar diet. 6 months later we’re no longer on statins and hypertension medicine.

    Good oils are natural unprocessed oils. The USDA have been proven to not know what is good for the US public evidenced by the health of the US public and its diseases also for mortality numbers and costs, physicians have been shown to be the worst people to advise on diet based on their mortality, because they appear to be the last people to take their own advice so how can they advise the public by example? As you keep saying “we don’t know “ if so , stop giving advice!

  27. Richard Davies on September 20, 2022 at 7:18 am

    ???? Eat whole grains and limit red meat? Are you for real?? Non-sense and Vegan biased- die (!)-a -tribe.

  28. Tipu Sultan on September 20, 2022 at 7:18 am

    Healthy Eating Plate ? Good for Diabetes? Which seems to a universal problem.

  29. Moses King on September 20, 2022 at 7:22 am

    Here is the jist of the video:
    -Mediterranean diet is the best, focus on oils liquid at room temperature, eat Whole Foods and avoid processed foods, make sure your food tastes good to ensure compliance with diets, and do research on supplements before use. Just saved you an hour of free time. Leave the gift basket at the door.

    wall to wall epidemiologists, the wish it was a science field. Distortions is how they make their money for paymasters. How many pages of conflict of interest was Dr Willet up to now? was it 22 or 23?

  34. Dino Miles on September 20, 2022 at 7:31 am

    Get a clue . Way OLD VID.

  35. John Gordon on September 20, 2022 at 7:32 am

    Where does this apparent conflict end? It makes scientists look inept as they publish their findings to an already established sensation seeking press.

    Way back in the early days of 1940s obesity was not known then 90% of the populations was slim and chubby, not "Obese"!
    We clean our house by hands and feet(scrubbing floors, stairs, etc.) We use wood for cooking! Iron with live coals to iron clothes! "Wash & Wear" very expensive hardly people can afford! No vacuums and washing machines! Doctors were not in telephone books!
    They were word by mouth!
    People then were very healthy! Meat, vegetables, and fruits were raised naturally! Diabetic, Obesity, Cancer, Depression, COPD, etc.etc. were never mention daily as we are now a days!Specially cancer on children and adults is vey common now a days too! Hardly at all then!!!😐😀!😉!
    We use Electric on radios, lights, Televisions but without "remote control! Almost everything was physical! Now by "fingers only"!
    So is there any wonder why our body stops to function properly?!?!🤔?😀!
    OXYGEN in our Brain, Muscles, and Blood is acquired by physical movements thru Exercise or Manual Habits at home and at Work😀!😉yeah!
    Sports and Physical Education were very much implented Then!
    Now almost everything is by "FINGERS" and by MOUTH!
    This Video is one of them!!!!
    Good luck on your seminars to gain money from ignorant people
    She 500 attendants you know how will that be in their pockets???
    Please use your computer if you are lazy to use your brain!!!🤔😉🤔😉🤔

    Harvard has a history of downplaying cellular nutrition advances and science. Big Pharmaceutical enjoys profiting from illnesses and Harvard sold out long ago. These so called professionals are actually ignorant about nutrition science. The statements about healthy eating is the only thing of value here.

    Hey. This was so insightful. I’ve been trying to research for a vid similar to yours that really informs everything in this video. 👩‍⚕️ 🙌 The part at 1:02 is really helpful. Your video actually reminds me of the videos of Dr Ethan. His demonstrations are totally informative and I learned a lot for midterms! He is a knowledgable med student in Europe!

    I recommend you check his channel out and give the Doctor a subscribe! 👉 #DrEthanEducation
