There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding the “vegan” documentary The Game Changers. In fact, during my office hours, it seemed like every other patient had questions for me on the topic. Many of my friends texted me asking similar questions. Instead of micro analyzing every point in the documentary I decided to approach it from a broad stroke perspective.

  • Humans share 98% DNA with Gorillas. We split with the 6.5 M years ago. See how they, like homo-sapiens ( us) get sick with meat and processed foods. As soon as one stops this diet, they get back to heath.EXACTLY as humans do. 98% of MD's don't know this because Medical school won't teach us this, as if we doctors had no patients, we would not make the $ we do . The # 1 expense the USA has is form health care The # 1 cause of death is due to cardiovascular disease , and the # 1 cause of climate changer is us growing animals for human consumption and processing foods. this is not an opinion, it is a fact. see see my United Nations Lecture to attest to this. watch with Arnold Schwarzenegger GAME CHANGER.

  • But like... How can you eat something that's alive.. living breathing being that can give birth and have a family and feel pain, love, affection and fully function... I just can't morally like at all. It feels so wrong... i grew up in a farm loving every animal in it and it scarred me for life to see my bestfriend being served as dinner. It's unacceptable. I just can't...

  • Interviewer: The stricture on the eating of meat, does that derive from the fact that animals have their lives which are accorded... Guest: Vegetable has got life. Interviewer: Yes. What I'm asking is that because animals have a higher priority in life than vegetables? Guest: No question of priority. Our philosophy is that we are servant of God. So God will eat, and whatever remnants of foodstuff He'll left, that we shall take. So in the Bhagavad-gītā... You find out this verse. Patraṁ puṣpaṁ phalaṁ toyaṁ yo me bhaktyā prayacchati (BG 9.26). Just like you have come here. So if I want to offer you something for eatable, it is my duty to ask you, "Mr…, which foodstuff you'll like to eat?" So you dictate, "I like this very much." Then, if I offer you that foodstuff, then you become pleased. So we have called Kṛṣṇa in this temple, so we are waiting, what foodstuff He wants to eat? So He said that... Guru-kṛpā: "If one offer me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit or water, I will accept it." Guest: Patraṁ puṣpaṁ phalam. He is asking very simple thing which everyone can offer. Just like a little leaf, patram, a little flower, puṣpam, a little fruit, and little liquid, either water. So we offer that. We make different varieties with these ingredients, patraṁ puṣpaṁ phalaṁ toyam (BG 9.26), and after Kṛṣṇa's eating, we take it. We are servant; we take the remnants of foodstuff left by Kṛṣṇa. We are neither vegetarian nor nonvegetarian. We are prasād-ian. We don't care for vegetable or not vegetable, because either you kill a cow or kill a vegetable, the sinful action is there. And according to nature's law, it is said that the animals, which has no hand, that is the food for the animals with hands. We are also animals with hands. We human being, we are also animal with hands, and they are animals - no hand but four legs. And there are animals which has no leg, that is vegetable. Apadāni catuṣ-padām. These animals which has no leg, they are food for the animals with four leg. Just like cow eats grass, the goat eats grass. So eating vegetable, there is no credit. Then the goats and the cows are more credit, have more credit, because they don't touch anything except vegetable. So we are not preaching to become goats and cows. No. We are preaching that you become servant of Kṛṣṇa. So whatever Kṛṣṇa eats, we eat. If Kṛṣṇa says that "Give me meat, give me eggs," so we shall offer Kṛṣṇa meat and eggs and we shall take it. So don't think that we are after vegan, vegetarian, nonvegan, nonvegetarian. No. That is not our philosophy. Because either you take vegetable or you take meat, you are killing. And you have to kill because otherwise you cannot live. That is nature's way. Interviewer: Yes. Guest: So we are not for that way. Interviewer: Well, why do you put the stricture on... Guest: Stricture in this way, no meat-eating, because cow protection life protection is required. Interviewer: Couldn't you get all the necessity you require from grains? Guest: Grains, no. Grains, they are starch. Guest: Some fatty vitaminous food is required. According to medical science, we require four different groups: starch, carbohydrate, protein, and fat. That is full food. So you can get all these things by eating rice, nuts, seeds pulses, and cereals. These things contain.... Nuts, Pulses and cereals contains protein. So protein we require. Fat is required. And vegetables, carbohydrate; and food grain, starch. So if you prepare nice foodstuff with all these ingredients, you get full. And offer to Krsna, then it's purified. Then you are free from all sinful activities. Otherwise, even if you kill vegetable, you are sinful because it has got life. You have no right to kill another life. But you have to live on life. This is your position. Therefore the solution is that you take prasādam. If there is sin by eating vegetable or meat it goes to the eater. We take the remnants, that's all. we don't take anymore, we know who it belongs to. Whatever intuitive knowledge I become aware of, this awareness comes from the oversoul that is related to me. Whatever I do with my mind, body, senses, speech, Or with my intellect or with my innate natural tendencies, I offer everything to the one from where everything comes from and to whom everything belongs and with whom I am connected in a loving exchange and in full appreciation. Who dwells in everyone's hearts and also in mine and is always with me. (Many thanks to

  • I like some of what you said Dr. Mike and you are more open minded than many traditional western medicine physicians. However, there is NO need, absolutely no need to eat any animal products. So why eat a little? Be fully plant based, why predominantly plant based? You have to understand, most REAL VEGANS, are Vegan for the animals, their health and the environment. INCLUDING ME, I went Vegan 12 years ago after watching a documentary, became an animal rights activist the following day and have never looked back. It was the best decision I ever made and the best I will ever make. YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND, ALL REAL VEGANS, ARE ANIMAL RIGHTS ACTIVISTS, WE ARE VEGAN FOR THE MORAL REASON, WE DO NOT BELIEVE IN ANIMALS BEING MURDERED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION, IT IS THAT SIMPLE. GO VEGAN!!!!!!!!!

  • Doctors never fully will support vegan diet because it will directly affect their business. Very diplomatic.

  • Healing is what its all about. No more no less. God and the universe gave us the best medicine, and it comes from the earth. Cure your body, your soul, and your mind. You have to understand, my PSA score was 424. Four months of a plant based diet it dropped to 0.31. My mind is still blown people. It's mind blowing. I am here to tell you...Our food is chemically alive. " Minites after eating anything, moleculues are washing through every cell in your body, where your DNA lies unfolded, and these molcules play our DNA like a piano. Food changes us on a genetic molecular level with every meal we eat." I was almost 250 pounds in February 2020. Eight months later I wiegh 208. I was diagnosed with stage 3 Prostate cancer. I did'nt panic because some how through the grace of God and the energy of this vast universe I found the truth. I started walking in the natural light. Food from the earth saved my life. Peace and love.

  • I think most people do not realize that processed meat is a Class 1 carcinogen, the same as cigarettes. Red meat is "probably" a carcinogen. This is per the World Health Organization. You mentioned the harm to the environment when we eat animals. You did not mention the animals themselves. It stops being a personal choice when there is a victim involved. Watch Best Speech You Will Ever Hear on UZworld (a college student filmed Gary Yourofsky at one of his lectures), Dominion, What the Health, Forks Over Knives, Cowspiracy, Speciesism. Dr. Michael Gregor's Food as Medicine TEDxSedona talk is also very informative. He talks about how doctors used to tell their patients to smoke cigarettes for a variety of reasons. How it wasn't until over 7,000 studies later that the Surgeon General came out with the warning that they cause cancer. 7,000! I've been vegetarian since 1991, and last year when I stopped consuming dairy products my fibromyalgia inflammation just about disappeared. I've only had 4 flare-up in the last year and they only lasted about a day each. We don't need animals to live, we don't need to kill them for their skin so we can be warm, we don't need to keep torturing them. Are you aware we put 5-6 month old pigs into gas chambers where they scream in agony when the Co2 burns their lungs? We shoot males baby calves in the head because they are useless in the dairy industry? 700,000 every year in Australia alone 😔 Watch Dominion then try to justify your choices. I couldn't.

    • No you are using fallacies. Red meat causes a 1% increased risk of cancer. It's also mostly correlation, not mechanistic data. You also talk about the environment. Well watch Allan Savories Ted talk on how we need cows to restore nature. Along with that fruits and vegetables can only be harvested certain times of the year depending on which side of the equator you are on. If we were to go vegan the transportation industry would massively increase, meaning we would be polluting more because of increased shipping. Also Dr Gregor's is using a false equivalence. Just because some doctors made mistakes in the past it does not make him correct. Along with that Dr Gregor cherry picks data so chances of him being wrong is very high. As for you fibromyalgia. Chances are you are lactose intolerant meaning you over consumed milk. As for saying we don't need to consume meat. Well meat contains all essential amino acids. Fish is the best source of DHA. And there are no vegan sources of creatine which increases a vegans chances of heart problems.

    Niels SNiels S9 kun oldin
  • As a scientist I enjoy your review and your effort to be as unbiased as possible. As a person who cares greatly about justice and ethics, it seems weird to me that you mentioned health and environment and completely left out the matter of horrible unjust abuse and slaughter of innocent beings who have CNS (i.e. ability to feel pain and fear) and who haven’t done anything to deserve this hell. This matter alone is enough of a reason to go vegan in my opinion. It doesn’t matter if going vegan is healthier. All that matters is that it’s possible, which has been proven by millions of people all over the world. And if it’s possible to live without torturing and killing, shouldn’t you make this choice? As a caring person, as a person who lives to help and heal, as a person who believes in “Do Not Harm”, how come you didn’t address this at all?

  • Comment from a 22 year vegetarian plus 5 year vegan. Quote from 10:28: with an unplanned vegan diet you can do serious harm to your body. The doctors offices and the hospitals and the graveyards of the western hemisphere are filled with humans eating an unplanned omnivores diet. Conclusion: with an unplanned omnivore diet you do serious harm to your body. The case about a vegan (child) suffering from B12 deficiency makes it into the news because it's rare, the millions of cases of omnivores suffering cancer, heart disease and diabetes are just statistics.

  • 6:31, all amino acids originate in plants, animals can synthesize *some*, the ones that are not essential to them, but they do consume the protein from plants or from another animal (in the case of carnivores/omnivores). This means, originally, those essential amino acids came from a plant source. It has nothing to do with us eating grass

  • What we are actually saying is: "Vegan diet? Well, nothing bad about it. But it's usually not the diet I recommend to my patients." I have an issue with that. If the vegan diet is pretty good (when it's balanced!), so why then not to bring in the fact that actually, it is better for the planet, where we all live. We are being "fried" on this planet (yes, the meat industry is not the only contributor) and if we don't change something disasters like floods, fires and storms will devastate this planet. Don't you feel it already? So, the reason why this movie is leaving out "the meat" side of the argument is simple - as long as we are not radical about it, this planet has no chance. I am proudly vegan for 4 years. I feel absolutely fine and I am happy that my diet doesn't compromise the life of other creatures and the environment of this precious place we live in.

  • A few things: You generally use vegan diet/veganism and WFPB diet at will--sometimes interchangeably. This is incorrect and should be a bit clearer. Olive oil is not healthy... You do not have to plan a WFPB diet more than a typical western diet. That is simply false. It isn't really equatable to focus on the deficient areas in a WFPB diet and assume that western dieters have complete nutrition. Research shows that meat eaters also lack in vitamin D--they also lack in fiber. Either diet has to be well-planned. You did not go vegan for a month. You may have eaten a WFPB diet for a month, but you were not vegan. To say you went vegan (an ethical standpoint) for a month is like saying you went anti-racist for a month and then went back to being racist. Last point is an ethical one. Is it really ethical to recommend to your patients to have a little bit of animal abuse?

  • There is substantial evidence. There are 7th day adventist studies comparing the spectrum from full vegan to flexitarins to lacto-ovo vegetarians, and the the more plant-based the better. Similarly fully vegetarian and flexitarian buddhist monks have been studied. Any amount of animal consumption is introducing exogenous hormones, excess cholesterol, excess heme iron, excess bad putrefaction bacteria, exces bacterial endotoxins, satursted fats, and excess proteins which tax your kidneys. Only plant fiber benefits your gut flora, and all of the above stated things I mention give way to the main killers and morbidity causes in today's society: UTIs in women (90% e. Coli from the gut due to animal consumption), heart disease/stroke, cancers (animal protein, hormones and cholesterol trigger igf-1 and angiogenesis growing and feeding tumors and cancer cells)... Etc it goes on and on. The ideal diet is raw and whole food plant based for all in all stages of life.

  • I mean... there are no proof that meat and dairy is healthy either. People can argue about, i need this and that from animal products. When that is complete BS. Everything you need you can get from plants. Or supliments. Vitamin D you get from the sun if possible. And these days everyone should supliment b12. Even people who are omnivores are deficient most the time. Eating animal products doesn't mean you will get sick 100%. But it sure as heck is a serious risk you are taking. Much like smoking. Maybe you won't get sick, maybe you will. But are you willing to take that risk? Our teeth and digestive system alone is proof we should be eating plants. Why eat something we are not meant to? Why eat something that will increase your risk of sickness and death. And it's not very climate smart either. Animal agriculture is neither sustainable for our planet or humanites overall health. Since most diseases, pests, flues etc. comes from the animals. Why would you support such and industry that has such a negative impact on both your health, the animals health and the planets health. People are dying, the animals are dying and the planet is dying. Vegan diet is so much more than your own health. It's about sustainable living and not letting animals suffer. Eating plants are sustainable and you have little to no risks for doing so. A whole-food plant based diet, is the diet for optimal health and sustainability. Saying anything else at this point is foolish.

    • @Poifix except 3 of those 5 blue zones eat a lot of meat. If you go to Japan and you look at what the okinawans eat compared to the rest of Japan, you'll see that they eat far more pork ( Sardinia has a dish known as Porceddu, which contains a lot of pork ( Then there are the nicoyans who eat far more meat and fat than the rest of Costa Rica. I know this because I've been there. Now there is also the possibility that the reason these people have such high ages is because people are trying to commit fraud. Japan has the most commonly known of this. ( So no, you don't know better.

    • @Dewaldt Look up the blue zones. Longest, healthiest living people on the planet. Living to 100+ is common, diseases like cardivasculer disease and diabetes is close to non-existent. Haveing a diet based on 90% plants or more. Diseases and shorter lifespan only getting worse when these places get more westernised adding more meat and dairy to their diet. Yes I do know better.

    • Eating meat increases your risk of disease by around 1%. These are also mostly correlations. Along with that our teeth and digestive system actually indicates we are omnivores. We have canines like carnivores along with incisors like herbivores. We also don't have rumen which means we aren't as good at extracting nutrients from plants as herbivores would be.

  • Why would they put people from the other side of conversation? The entire Status quo is giving them voice and animal food companies are using same marketing tactics... Why would it be problematic to say factually accurate statement. And they stated the experiments will not pass a scientific experiment. The documentary states that.

  • You should watch Forks over Knives, Plant Pure Nation, and What the Health. A Whole Foods Plant Based diet means no animal products at all, and for those who have heart disease, no oils. The whole point of this is no animal protein because animal proteins are linked to some cancers.

  • Thank you for this informative video! I've been vegan for a few years and I can say that making the switch is the hardest part, after a while it becomes natural. Supplementing can be very easy when buying certain vegan foods (like fortified soy milk) that can act as supplements, at least in part. I don't think veganism needs to be the healthiest diet, it still is very healthy if done right, but also, good for the environment and for the animals. I definitely think that starting by cutting down meat consumption is a great first step, we could see a lot of improvement if everyone cut on their meat consumption even a little bit.

  • I don’t have time for a lot of cognitive bias, but I will say this. I went full with the game changer diet at the end of Jan 2020 I’ve was a top level athlete for many years. Earning some of my living by sport. I am now 62 years old and had mild high blood pressure. For which I take meds. I watched to the movie. Went on the diet right away. My wife told me I should have taken photos of myself, and started a blog. LoL I’m lucky my wife is a great cook and my daughter is an apprentice chef. This help me with the number one issue on my mind. Loss of variety and energy. I have been off milk, cheese, butter, eggs, all meat, beef, pork, lamb, fish, everything for almost 8 months. No loss of energy. I went from 235 to 210 lbs with no loss of energy. I lost at least 10 to 15 points off my BP. I really noticed how clean I feel personally. My body functions are at least 100% better. I have 100% found my digestive function way better than my previous diet, I have been eating whole food healthy, and supplements Oh I had a little turkey breast in a salad a few weeks ago, but that was just a mistake. By the way Doc I think that all humans can benefit from this diet. Thanks for listening

  • My brother had a “next doctor visit” for starting on diálisis since his polycyclic kidneys started to fail. He switched to a vegan diet and this was the result: Bold tension went down and quit taking the two daily furosemide he was taking( a very strong diuretic) Uric Acid and Creatinine went down. Hemoglobin went up one point in one month. Cholesterol went down Head ache gone Heart burn gone Back pain gone Lost 15 pounds from being overweight He visited two doctors before the switch point. The first one was the president of the Nephrology Institución in Cuba and, the second one, nephrologist too, even has written books on the topic. None of them recommended a vegan diet. I have the same illness and I insisted, since my blood test is 100% fine. He trusted me, and after the switch, when these same doctors saw the blood test results, simply steered at the paper for a whole minute unable to believe what they was looking at. Eating meat is like those three cigarettes a day that won’t kill you, but do nothing good to you. If you have a chronic desease, quitting animal products it is the best you can do for yourself. If you want the best for yourself, it is too.

  • The fact that proteins is the first thing mike mentioned when saying what nutrients need to be planned on a vegan diet made me seriously doubt his knowledge on the matter...

    Marta MMarta MOy oldin
    • @Bruce Abbott No, I’m not a medical professional. But being a professional does not make anyone automatically right about something. I only said that protein is of the least potential concern when it comes to a vegan diet. I thought that he was going to place a bigger focus on micronutrients like the long chained omega 3 or iron or magnesium. But no, he went with the most basic thing a typical non-vegan would talk about - protein. I don’t think I ever heard of a vegan who suffered from a protein deficiency. If they did, it was because they were doing it completely wrong. But that’s not the diet’s fault. Also, I don’t know why you brought up B12. I never said anything about that. A vegan diet is worth the praises it is getting, for multiple reasons. The only reason why Mike was so sceptic about it, and only ostensibly objective, was because he is not a vegan himself.

      Marta MMarta M8 kun oldin
    • Mike is a medical professional. Are you? There are many cases where uneducated vegan diet lead to deficiency. Mike mentioned B12 deficiency because it’s a real condition.

  • Saying that pro-meat scientists should have a place in the debate--or that there should be a debate at all--is like saying that the cigarette companies should get to speak to the health comcerns of their product, or oil companies should get to speak to why they aren't at fault for climate change. Yes, white meat and fish are healthy in moderation. Yes, it can be challenging to get all the micronutrients, vitamins and minerals we need on a plant based diet. But more importantly, yes, consumption of red meat, especially processed red meat, is one of the leading contributors to fatal diseases in the western world today.

  • We need regenerative agriculture. Much of the vegan diet and Standard American Diet are too often fossil fuel intensive. They found that grazing animals properly can trap carbon and reverse desertification and reverse climate change. We need to rethink how we produce our food differently regardless if you eat vegan or omnivore diet. I like the Mediterranean diet with fish and lean meats.

  • There are a lot of articles saying vegan diets are superior, even to the American Hear Association recommended diets and from the Diabetes Association too. I just read a few articles about it (blind, controlled studies). You all can search for it in the pubmed website.

  • Meal should be well balanced, don't cut out meat from your diet completely if you see one documentary on how going vegan will help our planet and will decrease animal cruelty. Start with cutting out 10-20% of meat and replace it with veggies, slowly and steadily increase the percentage of veggies in your diet (like every 6 months replace 5% of meat from your diet with veggies). Stop at 60% veggies and 40% meat and celebrate because you are already contributing a lot toward saving our planet and decreasing animal cruelty. Increasing slowly and steadily the amount of veggies in your diet helps in building the colony of bacteria for digesting those veggies, if you suddenly start practicing veganism then you will not feel happy and your food will also be not digested properly.
