Healthy (Nutrient) Wealthy and Wise: Diet for Healthy Aging - Research on Aging

this ucsd-tv program is presented by university of california television like what you learn visit our website or follow us on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with the latest programs the Sam and Rose Stein Institute for research on Aging is committed to advancing lifelong health and well-being through research professional training patient care and community service as a nonprofit organization at the University of California San Diego School of Medicine our research and educational outreach activities are made possible by the generosity of private donors it is our vision that successful aging will be an achievable goal for everyone to learn more please visit our website at aging UCSD edu so good evening everyone and welcome to the UC San Diego center for healthy aging public lecture event for those of you I haven't had the chance to meet yet my name is Danielle Glorioso and I'm the executive director of the Stine Institute for Research on Aging and the Center for healthy aging I'm just so delighted to see such a lovely turnout tonight for our talk we're really excited about it for those of you who are new to us the Center for healthy aging focuses on advancing lifelong health and well-being through community outreach training and research I know many of you have been to our lectures before and know that these lecture series have been going on for over 25 years now with the idea that we want to get exciting advances that are happening in the field of aging out to the community so these lectures have been going on for 25 years now free to the community and are sponsored entirely through donations so I'd like to take a moment to thank all of you for supporting these lectures over the years because we wouldn't still be here doing this exciting work and connected with the community without your help I'd also like to note that this lecture tonight is sponsored by great call great call is a San Diego company and a leading provider for easy to use technology for active aging they've been wonderful supporters of the work we're doing we're very grateful that we can have this talk tonight because of them I'd like to go ahead and introduce our speaker tonight we are so thrilled to have dr. Katherine Richmond or Meg Richmond she's a radiologist here at UC San Diego and she's been serving as medical director of radiology at Thornton hospital since 1999 she completed all of her training here at UCSD starting from medical school all the way through fellowship she's a body imager performing CTS ultrasounds and fluoroscopic studies specializing in procedures to assess women for infertility and gynecological issues today she joins us to discuss the impact of nutrition on our health please join me in welcoming dr. Meg Richmond Thank You Danielle and thank you all for coming this evening I really appreciate it so let's talk about what we eat and how it impacts our health are you excited great okay I'd like to start with a quiz make sure you're all awake and excited about this information so dr. Campbell many of you I heard you rumbling that you've already read the China study but as you remember in the book he's looking at rats with liver cancer he fed them 20% protein or 5% protein and what happened to the rats then so what's going on in Norway during World War two what is being depicted in this graph we're going to talk about that how to have a good time eat blank to power your sexual life even if it seems hard at times we'll find out what that is in terms of osteoporosis we're looking at various countries the calcium intake here let me use the other pointer sorry so calcium intake on the bottom here and hip fracture right here you'll see that these countries here have very high calcium intake but also very high hip fracture rate these two countries here very little calcium intake but very low hip fracture rate what are those countries gee bomb dr. Furman refers to G bombs what are they why are they important what is even more disturbing and what virtually no one recognizes is that Blanc is killing our brains to physically shrivelling them to different brains here which one do you want let's get started so we're going to be talking about healthy nutrient wealthy and wise and we're going to start with healthy and we're going to begin talking about cancer so there are three stages to cancer the first is initiation I hate to say it but every single one of us in this room is making cancer cells it's just what we do so the next stage is promotion so initiation is kind of like you have seeds you make seeds and then the promotion phase is where do you put those seeds do you throw them on a carpeted floor like here so they can't grow or do you put them on soil and given Miracle Grow do you allow that cancer to grow and then the third stage is progression where the cancer just grows like wildfire dr. Campbell here wrote the book that China setting Cornell nutritional biochemist how did he get involved with all this it started in the 1960s he was looking at malnutrition in the Philippines he was involved with something called the mother craft project the whole point of the project was to cure malnutrition and how were they going to do that they were going to increase protein when he got to the Philippines he was shocked hepatitis B is endemic there but the poor he found no liver cancer yet in the rich even in kids as young as four years of age they were getting liver cancer four years of age getting liver cancer how is that possible well he noted that the rich were the only ones who could afford the animal protein now this didn't make sense to him because then liver cancer was previously thought to be a protein deficiency problem in fact that was the whole point of the mother craft project was to cure malnutrition by increasing protein consumption so how could protein consumption be related to cancer he knew that aflatoxin which is the most powerful carcinogen was very high in the Philippines and he thought maybe that's why he also had heard of this obscure study in India so that rats with liver cancer some were fed 20% protein levels others 5% protein levels and what happened they also gave them aflatoxin that carcinogen these rats got liver cancer all the white dots you see these rats did not know liver cancer one of dr. Campbell's colleagues said oh they must have mislabeled the cages because then yeah then as now everyone believes protein protein protein so dr. Campbell started thinking about what is the role of protein and tumor Genesis meaning the growth of cancer the rat study in India cancer only developed in those with high protein intake the Mothercraft project only those wood diets higher in protein got cancer how could this be so he started doing some investigations in his lab he started studying what happened as he brought protein levels down to 5% you have to understand that aflatoxin by itself is not dangerous it becomes dangerous when acted on by this mixed function oxidase MFO makes aflatoxin the dangerous metabolite and what dr. Campbell found was as he lowered protein he found lower levels of MFO and did this matter yes lower protein levels meant fewer mutations of the DNA what else did he find happened as he lowered the protein levels less aflatoxin entered the cells the cells multiplied more slowly the MFO that enzymes the ability decreased and the amount decreased and all of this collectively led to fewer DNA mutations so then dr. Campbell started to do another study he looked at actual cancer fossae meaning you look under the microscope and you look for little cells of cancer and he found that those fed the 20% protein had many cancer foci but the 5% that once fed 5% very few cancer foci and he thought well that's interesting so then he thought now which is more important toxins or protein so he did another study the 20% rats got off easy no aflatoxin the 5% rats got whopping doses of aflatoxin and what happened nothing changed lots of cancer fossae here very few despite all the aflatoxin so many more fuss I hear then he made the study even more complicated for 3 weeks the rats had a 5% protein diet then he switched them to 20% protein what happened the can surface I grew then after three weeks at 20% he flipped him back to 5% died and what happened the can surface I went away when he flipped him again the can surface I came back when he flipped him back to 5% the can surface I went away what he said was voci growth could be reversed up or down by switching the amount of protein for all stages of cancer development I hope you now notice that that means we have good memory for bad nutrition ok the body can remember early carcinogen insults and cancer can be reawakened by bad nutrition later he also noticed that the dose response curve disappears what do we mean by dose response curve those fed the high-protein diet had a dose response curve as he increased aflatoxin he got more cancer more aflatoxin more cancer that's what you expect for a dose response curve but for the rats in the low protein diet he could give him as much a flu toxin as he wanted and they didn't bump the can surface ID number so remember his question was which one's more important toxins or proteins what does this show us this shows us that low protein could override the effects of carcinogens so protein more important than carcinogens no you say adds tiny can surface ID what about actual tumor development so dr. Campbell did that he was looking for a gross tumor stuff you could actually see and again so the 20% rats they all died right the 5% fed rats were fine in fact he mentioned that they were alive and active with sleek hair coats okay I don't know what that means but it sounded good so then he repeated the study again those poor the 5% protein rats got lots of aflatoxin didn't make any difference these rats died these rats were fine despite the aflatoxin okay so still alive he said like flipping a light switch off and on we could control cancer promotion merely by changing the levels of protein regardless of initial exposure to carcinogen what about other cancers so not dr. Campbell a different group looked at at the University of Chicago they looked at breast cancer in rats they use two different carcinogens these here they did a similar study looking at 20% protein versus 5% protein and what did they find just like dr. Campbell they found that these rats died and these rats were fine they noticed that as they increase the amount of protein they were using casein that promoted breast cancer development so dr. Campbell back to dr. Campbell he started looking at other cancers including pancreatic cancer and he repeated it again the 5% got lots of aflatoxin the 20% did not same results these ones died these ones didn't why am i personally very interested in this one about pancreatic cancer because of my dad here's my mom and dad and my dad fought in World War two but he did not smoke and he did not drink but he ate the terrible American diet so he had multiple strokes and multiple heart attacks but he finally died of pancreatic cancer and because he had pancreatic cancer I'm at increased risk and so anything I can you to reduce my risk makes me happy so before you say well I'm just going to lower protein in my diet let's ask what protein was being used in all these studies and the answer is milk protein it was casein milk protein so then dr. Campbell said well is the problem protein or is the problem where you get the protein from so he repeated the studies this one looking at breast cancer he used wheat guess what those rats were fine it wasn't the level of protein it was the type of protein he tested a whole bunch of plant-based proteins so in this one looking at liver cancer he used soy guess what those rats were fine so it's not the protein it's the type of protein so now he had strong evidence two different organs liver and breast for different carcinogens two different species he was looking at mice and rats casein milk protein promotes cancer growth it affects the way the carcinogens interact with DNA and affects the way the cancer cells grow in terms of tumor genesis growth of tumor he tested a whole variety of things and what did he find nutrients from animal-based foods increased tumor development while nutrients from plant-based foods decreased tumor development very striking so guess what I mean I used to eat this all the time right not anymore right casein is the most relevant cancer promoter ever discovered now you may be saying oh that's and rats why do I care right who cares about rats well why is this relevant rats and humans have the same protein need protein operates the same way in both the level of protein it causes cancer is the same for both and in both the promotion stage is far more important than the initiation stage meaning that it's not just you make a cancer cell what do you do with it do you allow that cancer cell to grow what he said as these and many other studies showed nutrition to be far more important in controlling cancer promotion than the dose of the initiating carcinogen what about in human populations do we see the same results what was the China study that's the name of his book it was a monumental survey looking at death rates of 12 different cancers in 2,400 Chinese counties eight hundred and million Chinese 96% of the population that's a huge study and eighty-seven percent of them were the same ethnic group the Han people so we couldn't say it was genetic variability that led to the results the New York Times called this the Grand Prix of epidemiologic studies which cancers did they find were most responsive to diet the three most responsive breast prostate and colon but also lymphoma liver lung brain and esophageal what did they find as the amount of animal foods increased so did the rate of cancer even for small amounts of animal food you have to understand the Chinese on average eat a whole lot less meat than we do in the States most cancers occurred in direct proportion to the quantity of animal foods consumed meaning you eat more animal products you get more cancer more animal products more cancer now you may be saying denial I don't believe it uh-uh guess what denial is a uniquely human trait hey doctor Varkey here at UCSD has found this out he was very interested in evolution and he was trying to decide why did we humans beat out all the other super-smart species and why did we humans beat out all the other hominids right so you might think that your neighbor your boss is a Neanderthal but actually there are no Neanderthals right we beat out everything else so in his book he's talking about how that ability to deny some aspects of reality what allowed us to evolve and then in the middle of this book I find this paragraph and he's a molecular biologist here at UCSD in my own lab I study the mechanism by which the eating of red meat beef pork and lamb results in the well known increase of heart attacks cancer and early death so this is a slide dr. Varkey gave me so red meat and milk products have glycol nerman ik acid that when we ingested it goes into our endothelium and our epithelium and causes cancer and heart disease now before you jump to say oh great I just won't eat these wait just a minute but going on within his book I found that seventy percent of the group in his lab had been moderate to heavy red meat eaters prior to joining the group all understood both the epidemiologic and molecular information and fully agreed with the nature of the risk despite this only a third had significantly reduced their meat intake and only one person had quit altogether this is a photo he gave me of his lab look they're all eating meat this guy's got a meat mustache right in fact the meat consumption has actually gone up in his lab 90% even though they know they know it's bad for them this is what he says denial of mortality is also part of a much broader concept about other human ability to deny many other aspects of reality especially when such realities are not to our liking for example we smoked cigarettes eat unhealthy foods don't watch our weight and don't exercise despite our full awareness that these habits are a prescription for an early death so who else was in denial so that's me with my husband that's 2007 before we were plant-based I look awful you can say it's okay I look terrible before going plant-based I'm fat I'm pudgy my skin looks yellow it's terrible right my husband thought I was just terrible right yeah it's okay you can say it right so we started dating in 2007 and many people laugh at this I'm not quite sure why but anyway when we started dating he says you shouldn't be dating me I'll be dead in a year he was told yeah that if he didn't get a liver transplant he would be dead in a year because of his liver condition he was having monthly or weekly shaking chills and fevers to 104 he it took quite a while before he ever went to see a doctor and you might be going well that's stupid why didn't he go to a doctor earlier so finally a tick bite got him to go now why didn't he go earlier because he grew up on a ranch in Wyoming and Cowboys don't go to see the doctor come on right so he waited a long time but he finally went because he thought he had Lions disease turns out his liver function tests were 12 times higher than normal they tested him up the yin-yang no limes disease no viral hepatitis normal iron normal copper for any docs in the audience he has alpha 1-antitrypsin which attacks the lungs and the liver so a genetic liver disorder that's what was attacking his liver because he grew up on a ranch he ate meat three times a day Grand Slam at Denny's all the meat you could eat of me so he thought this whole being plant base was a bunch of hogwash so I said okay let's do a study on you we're going to do 12 days of a plant-based diet okay I'm going to test your cholesterol day one and I'm going to test it day 12 his cholesterol went from 199 to 163 in 12 days and more impressive his liver function tests were three times normal became normal for the first time since he knew he was sick so he's now plant-based and gone are the chills gone to the fever's and you know those commercials were the food smacks the person I don't even have to yell at him right because if he cheats his own body says no I don't want that bad food anymore so he's plant-based too this was the most powerful information to help him see the impact on his own body now you might be saying is red meat the only problem that's right I'll just get rid of red meat well wait just a second in this study 32,000 adults if they avoided red but ate white meat more than 300 percent increased incidents of colon cancer now notice eating beans peas and lentils at least twice a week halved that risk so 50% lower risk than never eating those foods so each or beans right but even better don't eat this can a vegan diet really help humans yes dr. Dean Ornish did a study with UCSF looking at men ninety three men with early prostate cancer the study group did a vegan diet moderate exercise yoga and relaxation after one year the study group had lower PSA only by 4% but those in the control group rose by 6% none of the men needed additional therapy whereas six of men in the control group did and interestingly when they drew their blood and put it on prostate cancer cells in the lab it inhibited the prostate cancer cells remarkable so this is what he said this is the first randomized trial showing progression of prostate cancer can be stopped or perhaps even reversed by changing diet and lifestyle alone are there any other studies showing that a vegan diet can help yes some of the one population studied probably the longest so the some of the administers a bunch in Loma Linda just about two hours from here and so in this 12-year study you understand that many are vegan but there's also vegetarians and meat eaters right so they're encouraged to be plant-based that they don't have to be plant-based so within this study they were looking at vegans too modest meat eaters so vegan females on average we're living nine years longer than average Californians whereas men nine and a half years longer than average Californians and those who ate nuts and seeds live the longest slightly more than near vegans so again have we seen that a plant-based diet nutritionally in populations has been shown to be beneficial yes okay so let's switch from cancer to heart disease I showed you this as part of the quiz what was going on in Norway during this time this is looking at heart attacks so what happened the Norwegian the Germans came in and took all over the livestock so they didn't have their milk their butter their cheese or their meat and look what happened they plummeted the amount of heart attacks and what happened when the war finished they got their livestock back and what else did they get back the heart attacks right to me this is some of these strongest evidence that what we eat absolutely affects our health so who wants an artery like this right you don't want all this plaque in here and look how it's narrowing the vessel dr. Esselstyn is an endocrine surgeon at Cleveland Clinic he wrote this book pervert prevent and reverse heart disease so plant-based but also no oils for people with very severe heart disease this is the program and the doctor with whom Bill Clinton worked to get his health back I'll show you the cardiac angio of one of the anesthesiologists and dr. esselstyn's Hospital he was 49 exercised all the time had a heart attack was told you could see the narrowing here he was told he needed stents or heart open-heart surgery he refused he knew about dr. Esselstyn and his plan so he went on the plan and you can see within two years he completely reversed the plaque and has a normal appearing artery this has been shown time and time again with dr. esselstyn's patients dr. Ornish's patients when you are plant-based and very low fat you can absolutely review reverse plaque along vessels this is a quote from the doctor heading the Framingham Heart Study we tend to scoff at vegetarians but they're doing much better than we are vegans have cholesterol levels so low they almost never get heart we've never seen anyone in the Framingham study have a heart attack with a level below 150 so we're going to talk briefly about Gary Gary had three heart attacks by the time he was 52 worked out all the time in fact he had a heart attack and dropped dead while on the treadmill at the gym luckily the fire station was literally next door they came back came over and resuscitated him he had tremendously high cholesterol he was given the statins he had tremendous muscle pain so he couldn't take them anymore he was then put on niacin he had an anaphylactic reaction that's a life-threatening allergic reaction so he couldn't take the niacin and in his cardiologist said there's nothing else I can do for you one of these days you're just going to drop dead and Gary was very depressed and despondent his wife works with us she's one of the sonographer 'he's I gave her a copy of forks over knives they watched it together and Gary said hey wait there's something I can do about my life and about my health so he gave up all meat in all Derrick's up a little bit of salmon he has a little bit of salmon now and then he gave up all carbohydrates meaning the bad carbs the pasta the breads the doughnuts that kind of thing and he feels and looks great his cholesterol was normal and his lipoprotein profile is normal so instead of the bad be kind he has now converted his lipoprotein to a so it's great and I like to joke that there's now only one carnivore in this picture that's over here dr. Kim Williams is now the president of American College of Cardiology he became plant-based in 2003 why because he had a patient who had elevated cholesterol and he told her you got to go on statins and she refused she said absolutely not she became plant-based and he saw in front of his eyes that she cured herself then he tested himself and said oh my goodness I have elevated cholesterol and he said well I know what to do now he did what his patient did and he became plant-based so it's great and he's been feeling great ever since now we're going to switch gears again and talk about erectile dysfunction so what is the number one cause of erectile dysfunction in the United States if you listen to too much TV you're going to go with low testosterone what are some other things psychological issues obesity prostate issues improper nutrition low testosterone diabetes trauma and heart disease what is the number one cause don't listen to TV ads it's improper nutrition this is a busy slide but bear with me okay the reptile dysfunction really is the canary in the coal mine so in the study what they did is they looked at men having a variety of problems angina which means chest pain mi meat means heart attack chest pain or heart attack stroke heart failure TI a is a mini-stroke arrhythmia first cardiovascular event or death of any cause and they asked how many of these men had a wreck tile dysfunction before they had their event and here are the numbers the percentages whopping percentages in fact nine different studies with 3800 men 78 88 percent the vast majority had a reptile dysfunction before the event or their sudden death so if you know anyone with a wreck tile dysfunction their body is saying please help me my arteries are having difficulty please fix my endothelium because if they're having erectile dysfunction there are an incredibly high risk of having some kind of event so we want to stop it when they have the erectile dysfunction and not let them go on in fact there's even a free book on Amazon diet and impotence how your food choices are either causing or preventing erectile dysfunction and infertility so if you want to have a good time what do you need well you have to have an intact endothelium that's the lining of the artery smooth muscle nerves and you got to have nitric oxide that's kind of the dynamite that gets everything going so what do you want to eat to get the nitric oxide so this is a photo from what the planet eats anyone think this is an American table no look at all these lovely veggies and fruits yeah so this is great for nitric oxide but look at the photo they took of the typical American table I defy you go ahead find a veggie and a fruit in there there's a grape and a tomato but other than that it's pizza meat meat meat meat meat processed foods dairy right is this going to give you the Cascade you want for to cure erectile dysfunction no this is the cause of it in fact this doctor this cardiologist he prescribes a vegan diet to improve sex life he says outside the need for emergency surgery I've never seen anything come close to the breadth and depth of benefits that a plant-based diet provides cardiologist dr. Robert ausf L Yale and Harvard trained who runs the cardiac Wellness Program at Montefiore Medical Center what foods are packed with the nitrates and the antioxidants that make them rush to convert to nitric oxide arugula rhubarb kale Swiss chard spinach bok choy and beets are at the top of the list finish your diet off with grapes pomegranates apples and green tea and you have a dynamite erotic potion that will supercharge your endothelium both in your groin and in your heart over 400 years ago Thomas said in hampstead a man is as old as his arteries so you don't want old arteries right eat plants to protect your brain eat plants to protect your heart but also eat plants to power your sexual life even if it seems hard at times what may seem hard will keep you hard now that's a great quote right you gotta love that that's a great quote we're going to switch gears again and talk about osteoporosis is osteoporosis a big problem yes 50% of women and 25% of men over 50 will have a fracture worldwide almost 9 million fractures annually with a fracture occurring every 3 seconds I showed you this as part of the quiz these countries here have very high calcium intake but also very high hip fracture rate what countries are we talking about the United States New Zealand Sweden in the United Kingdom and you think how is that possible that's we have whopping dairy intake here but what are the other countries that you see down here Hong Kong and Singapore they're lactose intolerant so very little dairy intake and so despite what you hear in the news and the ads hip fracture rates are actually highest in the countries of the highest dairy intake so we're brainwashed to drink your milk drink your milk for strong bones that's the furthest thing from the truth so when you see all these ads got milk got milk you don't want to read the ad what she really is trying to say is yes almond milk or oatmeal milk or hemp milk not cow's milk and you may be saying why doesn't milk have calcium yes it does but what happens the standard American diet causes much of the consumed calcium to be lost in the urine excess salt caffeine sugar and animal products leach calcium out of the bones and promote urinary calcium loss so you ingest it and then you lose it and you lose even more in contrast vegetables beans fruits nuts and seeds are rich sources of calcium and other important minerals and do not promote the urinary excretion of calcium which foods are high in calcium romaine lettuce bok choy sesame seeds broccoli kale garbanzo beans the list goes on and on your body will absorb 50% of the calcium and veggies but only a third of the calcium and milk and then because of the cascade of events you actually lose the calcium from your bones so if you want to treat osteoporosis you want to eat plant-based foods how about diabetes dr. Barnard has dubbed this extensively he's found time and again that a low-fat plant-based diet leads to significant weight loss and dramatic improvement in blood sugar plasma lipids and blood pressure he says all of this occurs in the absence of any limits on carbohydrates calories or portion sizes let me say that again this is not Weight Watchers where people have to weigh their stuff and they eat tiny little meals all of this benefit occurs in the absence of any limit on carbohydrates calories or portion sizes if the food is good for you you can eat as much of it as you want and still get these benefits he says in our studies and many others people with diabetes weight problems lipid disorders and other conditions discover the power of throwing out meat cheese and other animal products as they replace them with healthy beans grains vegetables and fruits weight melts away blood sugars fall and the need for medications drop for most people hypertension diabetes high cholesterol goes away within days what about autoimmune disorders there's a whole host of autoimmune disorders this includes multiple sclerosis Crohn's disease rheumatoid arthritis lupus what are they all have in common they're all autoimmune disorders and guess what they all respond beautifully to a plant-based diet so this is a woman I met this is before I met her she has star Koide which is one of the autoimmune disorders she had so much pain at 8 out of 10 pain daily never left her house was on all kinds of pain medications then she became plant base and look at her on the plant-based diet she's glowing she's thinner she's active she's living life to her fullest she became plant-based got off all of her medications including her inhalers and is pain-free what about our eyes macular degeneration right is this a serious problem yes it's the leading cause of blindness for folks over 65 the damage is caused by excess free radicals so if you think about a fireplace the little sparks coming out of the fireplace that's kind of like a free radical it lets go out it could start a fire so we don't want those little sparks going out so the damage to the macula is from the free radicals what they found in this study was eighty-eight percent less macular degeneration people eating greens five times a week when the folks said I want to eat the greens I'm going to do the supplements instead vitamin C vitamin E vitamin A they found it was of no use so you got to eat the veggies so if you want you want carotenoids so higher carotenoids lower rate of macular degeneration so you want to eat green leafy veggies carrots and citrus what about cataracts I thought you just get older you get cataracts nope so instead of the blurry vision what they found is that is this a big problem yes 20 million Americans over 40 hub cataracts damage caused by what excess free radicals this is a common theme free radicals are bad throughout our body they cause inflammation and they cause disease what they found is that ludian is the main component in our lens of the eye it's also the antioxidant in spinach and the dark leafy green veggies so what happens when you eat a lot of dark green leafy veggies what they found is the folks in this study the squits constant study the highest lutein consumption half the rate of cataracts and those with the highest spinach consumption 40% fewer cataracts yay so eat our spinach what about dementia we're going to talk about this more in the last segment of the talk but just briefly Alzheimer's one in five over seventy will have cognitive impairment half of folks with cognitive impairment will develop dimension five years 20% about 20% of Alzheimer's cases are attributed to elevated homocysteine homocysteine is a byproduct of methionine where do you get the Metheny from animal products so the brain uses B twelve B six and Foley to get rid of the homocysteine but 96% of Americans don't eat enough greens and beans to have enough folate okay so which side of the brain do you want if you're eating this you're heading towards this if you want to keep this you want to eat these the beans and the greens in fact one study put folks on a plant-based diet for just one week just one week and in one week alone they saw a homocysteine drop by 20% boom one week 20% drop that's remarkable just think if you were plant-based all the time let's switch to the second part of our talk which is talking about nutrients let's be nutrient wealthy so there's the good and the bad if you want to be plant-based you have to have b12 you must take a b12 supplement absolutely key to take a b12 supplement also important to check your vitamin D levels you want calcium but you want it naturally through your food folate not folic acid risk Vera trawl and there's a lot of information also coming out on probiotics in terms of the bad you do not want folic acid so yes you want folate but not folic acid if you're on a multivitamin check most multivitamins have folic acid rather than folate you can find ones with folate instead you do not want vitamin A beta carotene vitamin E selenium iron copper or salt so what they found is supplements are not just neutral and many times when you take supplements these kinds of supplements they actually can increase your risk of death so what are the good nutrients so free radicals again we've talked a little bit about free radicals what dr. Fuhrman has found is that animal-based foods lack antioxidant shields and tend to activate free radical production and cell damage while plant-based foods with their abundant antioxidants tend to prevent such damage so what should we be eating he calls them G bombs and we need to eat them every day greens berries onions mushrooms beans and seeds and within seeds he includes nuts so G bombs okay when he looked at 206 epidemiologic studies the consumption of raw greens was the most consistent and powerful association with reduction of cancers of all types including stomach pancreas colon and breast you really want to become friends with the cruciferous vegetable so kale broccoli cabbage cauliflower watercress bok choy these guys rock why when you increase your regular veggie consumption 20% you decrease your cancer risk 20% but when you increase your cruciferous vegetable intake 20% you decrease your cancer risk 40% so it's twice the bang for the buck what about mushrooms these guys think of them as the Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator for cancer cells these guys Rock right why they enhance natural killer till killer T cell function getting rid of cancer they prevent DNA damage they slow to more growth they cause programmed cancer cell death they prevent angiogenesis meaning cancer needs to have a blood supply so it chokes off the blood supply to the cancer this has been shown for breast prostate colon and other cancers it helps dendritic cells think of them as spindly things that catch cancer cells and microbes and it helps prevent the decline in the number of dendritic cells that we see with aging this next one I particularly like it helps stop the growth of fat cells yay so that one gets a smiley face right what about onions and garlic it reduces the risk of all common cancers including colon ovarian prostate esophageal and stomach cancer the stuff that makes you cry as the stuff you want it inhibits angiogenesis again it doesn't allow the cancer to get a blood supply it detoxifies carcinogens and can even be an anti-inflammatory for arthritis pomegranates I've just got to eat more of these because these guys Rock they are anti everything antioxidant anti-carcinogenic flama Tory they help prevent cancer diabetes cardiovascular disease erectile dysfunction who needs a little blue pill just eat a pomegranate right it's great it helps prevent bacterial infections antibiotic resistance and UV skin damage it lowers blood pressure prevents cancer especially breast prostate colon and leukemia it prevents platelet clumping so blood clots and atherosclerosis reduces kidney infections one study showed heart patients with severe blockages in their arteries they took one ounce a day for one year of the pomegranates they had 20% less blood pressure and 30% less plaque after one year berries you want to eat a lot they act just like the cruciferous vegetables they help transform the damaged DNA back to near normal and reduce cancer at many sites what kind of berries any kind of berries you want black blue raspberry acai goji elderberry strawberries are great very high in antioxidants nuts and seeds I hear some people saying I can't eat nuts and seeds it's too high in fat okay the fat problem is a problem only if the fat is coming from animals not if it's coming from nuts study after study has shown for all populations genders and ages as nut consumption increases death from all causes decreases what they found is that the overall lifespan increases so eat your nuts this is not achieved with the oils you need to eat the actual notes so the last part of our talk is talking about being wise so exercise is better than zoloft at treating depression this was the New York Times in 2000 but what about treating dementia so what is this is part of the quiz what is even more disturbing what virtually no one recognizes is that inactivity is killing our brains to physically shrivelling them so this is my mom so my mom got a degree in English and library sciences she actually had a TD or ADHD before we knew what that was right she was a librarian an English teacher she ran a pharmacy she kind of worked as a circulating nurse for a while well she married my dad and they moved to Palm Springs UC brings wealth of cultures to life in Palm Springs my dad was an attorney and so mom was bored and she said I think I'd like to go to law school and my dad said oh don't bother you could never pass the bar yeah well you don't give a challenge like that to my mom right so here she is you know graduating from law school and there I am and so is that my dad no that's the Dean of the law school and so she is a practicing attorney for many years she did crossword puzzles everyday she could quote sonnets and do poetry is incredibly smart so here she is with my daughter's 11 months look at the bright look in her face and then look at her seven years later I hope you can see the glazed look on her face the it has gone from her eyes and she has Alzheimer's now she was born she did have Alzheimer's she's since passed but she was born in South America her parents were missionaries so she played hymns at church from five years old on so it was very interesting she could play full hymns with full chords but she could remember our names her name couldn't brush her teeth couldn't brush her hair or do the activities of daily living right this is the last picture of her she died after battling Alzheimer's for 13 years for me personally this is the number one reason why I am plant-based and why I try to exercise every day because I will do absolutely anything to avoid this and do that have that impact on my daughter luckily found out about this book spark the revolutionary new science of exercise and the brain physical activity sparks biological changes that encourage brain cells to bind to one another I know about you I want my brain cells to bind to one another they want them to hold hands and a hang on right moving our muscles produces proteins that travel through the bloodstream and into the brain where they play pivotal roles in the mechanisms of our highest thought processes brain scans of exorcising rodents not only did the running rodents show an increase in BDNF that's growth factor over controls but the farther each Mouse ran the higher the levels were the act of mice had twice as many new stem cells in the hippocampus now you may be saying what the heck is a hippocampus it sounds like hippopotamus well let's talk about that here's a healthy brain here's an Alzheimer's brain and this part here is what's associated with memory this is where the hippocampus is and look at that same area in the person with Alzheimer's Alzheimer's causes decrease in brain volume but particularly in the area for memory right so we really really want brain cells everywhere but particularly in the areas from memory does exercise help absolutely it strengthens the connections between brain cells it creates more synapses to expand connections it encourages new stem cells to divide and become functional neurons in the hippocampus that's the area for memory it elevates the supply of neurotrophic factors for neuroplasticity and neurogenesis meaning you get new brain cells and you put Miracle Grow on them so you make them grow and stick and stay house been shown in human populations absolutely in this study of 1,500 people in Finland following people for 21 years ages 65 to 79 those who exercised at least twice a week had 50% less likely to develop dementia this was even more pronounced for the folks that have the gene that predisposes them to Alzheimer's the apoe4 when people come to recognize how their lifestyle can improve their lifespan living better not simply longer they will at the very least be more inclined to stay active and I added any good foods so what kind of exercise you want to do so the best is if you can do aerobic exercise and have skill acquisition so basically dancing where you have to do more complex movements so dancing yoga rock climbing martial arts this kind of dancing all of that is great so here's one of our former residents he's studying for his boards while he's golfing multitasking right basically any kind of exercise can help even walking five minutes a day can help so get out there and exercise the American Heart Association calls these the simple seven we're supposed to meet all seven no smoking blood sugar under 100 blood pressure less than 120 over 80 being active 30 minutes five times a week cholesterol less than 200 weight BMI less than 25 eating better so food low in the bad fats cholesterol sodium and sugar and food high in fiber veggies fruit and lean protein what do you think how many Americans meet all seven any guesses fewer than one in 2,000 Americans meet all seven it's terrible isn't it so we got to get out there we got to eat better and we got to exercise we got some people you may be saying oh I can't be plant-based right I'm an athlete okay well look at this couple they ran a marathon every single day for a year in fact 366 because they wanted to be in the Guinness Book of World Records yeah and not only were they plant-based they were raw plant-based and they ran a marathon every day ESPN wrote this article football players go vegan never felt better leti we failed a physical he became vegan he says he's in the best shape of his life impressed with the results his whole family is now going vegan Pro Bowler foster believes he's creating a healthier stronger body that will make him a better player despite all the warnings and discouragement he hears for him the bottom line is that he doesn't feel good when he eats meat he is philosophical about the reason people are so resistant to his new diet we're emotionally attached to food bad food think about every big event in America it's attached to food Christmas Thanksgiving birthdays holidays it's with food that's why people feel so strongly about it they're emotionally attached to it this was on the cover of the sports page in the Union Tribune just about two weeks ago vegging out at mealtimes helps chargers Allen improve Fitness when asked what is the main thing that's helped you improve your game and improve your nutrition he said salad you may be saying I'm too old I can't start this stuff uh-huh here's dr. Horacio D'Agostino he left UCSD to become chair of radiology at Shreveport he found out about the China Study in the book spark so in his 60s he became plant-based and started doing races triathlons 5ks 10ks he comes in first and second in his age group every race his son a gourmet chef became plant-based as well and he comes in first in his age group for every single race triathlon bike race running race you name it and he's now going to medical school which is great so yes you can absolutely start at any age this is the mom of one of my friends she started walking for exercise at age 60 started running at 72 she is the current USA record holder for the fastest half marathon for 80 year old and above right so get out there and exercise absolutely so how do you want to start dr. Bernard the diabetes expert says for breakfast some choices include oatmeal with cinnamon and raisins half cantaloupe whole grain cereal with soymilk so pick a bunch of different milks there's oatmeal milk hemp milk rice milk almond milk veggie sausage tofu scramble for lunch lentil soup split pea soup or white bean chili with crusty bread and steamed veggies pizza without cheese but with extra sauce and veggies dinner could be a green salad and bowl of minestrone followed by angel hair pasta with artichoke hearts seared oyster mushrooms and chunky tomatoes I know about you that sure sounds good to me I encourage you to do it my husband don't believe me don't believe anyone else test yourself right test yourself de blah day one and test yourself day twelve going on a strict plant-based diet and test the labs that are most important to you so for instance you might want to check your cholesterol and I know that you are going to see a dramatic drop if you have arthritis check some of the inflammatory markers this is the book that we used and this is what I used to convince my husband this is twelve days of dynamic health what's great about this is it gives you shopping lists and recipes for the twelve days you know exactly what to buy and what to make not happy the first week don't despair you have detoxing to do right it's just like withdrawing from caffeine and smoking you might have temporary fatigue weakness headaches that can occur gasps yes you're going to have some there's just no way around it right it passes right right your gut will get used to your new way of eating you're still going to have gas but it will get better if you need more protein try nuts and seeds if you want more oil to feel full try flax seeds and walnuts I can't cook to save my life so my husband and I eat out a lot Thai and Vietnamese are lactose intolerant so if you leave off the meat it's basically plant-based we also love fast food Mexican so Chipotle rice beans guac and veggies boom we're out the door with a fairly healthy meal then I get this a lot well come on Meg everything in moderation really everything in moderation okay let's try some things let's see if you agree on this how about arsenic is that okay in moderation how about lead cocaine heroin mold really everything in moderation I encourage you to think about meat and dairy kind of in this list that we want to really reduce our exposures to those Kaiser is already on board with this they have a whole pamphlet I have an example of one here instructing patients to be plant-based because they've already see the benefits of it in the pamphlet they tell the patients about what is a whole food plant-based diet they tell them what the health benefits are they encourage them to do a 30-day challenge so going back to our quiz what did we see that dr. Campbell was looking at rats with liver cancer fed 20% protein versus 5% protein and what happened to them these rats these rats were fine and before you say well I'm just going to reduce the amount of protein in my diet remember he was using milk protein he did not find these effects with plant-based proteins it was only the animal-based proteins here the heart attack rate in Norway during World War two for me this is the some of the strongest evidence that what we eat absolutely impacts our health because as soon as the war ended and they got their livestock back they got their heart attacks back to want to have a good time eat plants to power your sexual life even if it seems hard at times what may seem hard will keep you hard for osteoporosis don't be fooled by the ads don't drink your cow's milk to make your bones strong these countries with a highest dairy intake have the highest hip fracture rate we want to be like these folks with not eating the dairy G bombs we want to eat them every day greens berries onions mushrooms beans and seeds and with the seeds we include nuts so eat them every day what is even more disturbing and what virtually no one recognizes is that inactivity is killing our brains to physically shrivelling them so we got to get out there and move and then which brain do you want if you're eating this stuff you're heading towards here if you want this brain and want to keep this again you want your green leafy vegetables and your beans remember the study just one week on a plant-based diet decreased homocysteine levels by 20% in conclusion in order for man to succeed in life God provided him with two means education and physical activity not separately one for the soul and the other for the body but for the two together with these two means man can attain perfection and who said that Plato so we've known this for quite a while what are the eating recommendations dr. Fuhrman says we need at least six servings of fresh fruits a day concentrating on berries and pomegranates eight servings of veggies per day so two servings at least from the cruciferous vegetables and at least one raw we want a half a cup of beans and legumes a day one ounce of raw nuts and seeds add a large salad every day omega-3s and I added respiratory and probiotics what do you not want to eat he says barbecued processed and commercial meats I would say all meat of all kinds that includes turkey chicken and eggs so we're clear fried foods Dairy of all kinds soft drinks sugar and artificial sweeteners white flour products so overall if you got to have the bad food it should be less than ten percent of your diet so if you're a woman eating a 1,500 calories a day only 150 calories should come from bad food and I hate to tell you 150 calories of bad food is a really tiny Surfing bad food so this is the article from Scientific American the true cost of risky behavior and they came up with this term a micro life what is a micro life that you can get a half an hour 30 minutes of your life you can get it back or you can lose it so in the green these are things that if you do them you get extra time to your life so the first one exercise you exercise 20 minutes you get two microlights yeah you get an hour back in your life fruits and veggies you get a micro life so just one serving of fruits and veggies alcohol drink you get a micro life you may be thinking yeah I can do that awesome I'll keep doing that boom subsequent alcohol drink you lose thirty minutes of your life so be careful one alcohol drink okay second one not so good red meat you lose a micro life smoking absolutely you lose a micro life sitting more than two hours lose a micro life being overweight in fact in the article they said just 1/4 pound burner you lose a micro life so is that burner really worth it at the veggie burger instead so in closing dr. Campbell says why be plant-based the possibility of death has been holding steady at a hundred percent for quite some time I have often met people who use this fact to justify their ambivalence toward health information but I take a different view I have never pursued health hoping for immortality good health is about being able to fully enjoy the time we do have it is about being us functional as possible throughout our entire lives and avoiding crippling painful and lengthy battles with disease so I wish you all a long and how whole life thank you very much for your time and attention you've been wonderful great so we have about half an hour for questions in the blue shirt in the back so I didn't hear the last part what about fish and then the last part you said pros and cons of fish okay so so the problem with fish is that it's an animal product and I didn't have time to go through the various cascades but basically all animal products increase IGF it's a growth factor and so what they found is that by increasing your fish consumption you basically it's like any other animal product and you increase your risk of cancer so what I didn't realize again we've been kind of brainwashed is you think okay fish I needed my omega-3 so I need fish do you know fish don't make omega-3s they don't make a single omega-3 they just concentrate it so skip the middleman and go to the primary source algae and that kind of thing so there's all kinds of vegan sources of omega-3s you can even get them on amazon bottle the stuff doesn't taste bad I squeeze it onto a spoon every morning and eat it and so fish also depending on what kind of fish you get very high in pollutants mercury and other things so you are really doing yourself a disservice eating the fish so again you know like I don't know if you remember Michael Greger and his talk showed that in the Mediterranean diet there's been no health benefit through eating fish that hasn't been borne out whereas the plants the veggies eating the beans and the grains has been shown to be beneficial in the Hat so the question was please tell me that chocolate and coffee are okay one or the other so so coffee has a very high in antioxidants so then you just have to be careful what you put in your coffee oh they black I'm I'm a whoops I need to have creamer and okay so I've been doing almond milk in my coffee so on many studies showing that a Thai and antioxidant so coffee is fine the chocolate you just have to be careful what's in the chocolate and in particular milk chocolate because that's got the milk back so luckily even you know bonds and stuff is got vegan chocolate if you will so more and more places to have the dark chocolate if you go to places like Whole Foods you'll have whole shelves that you have to sort through in terms of which dark chocolate do you want but more and more if you have a sweet tooth like I do there are great vegan desserts as you can see from my runt back here there are tons of really good vegan desserts I'm here to tell you that so the good news is that yes you can still eat your chocolate and you can still have your coffee just be careful what else you mix in with them yes so he said even modest modest amounts of yogurt and cheese can be undesirable yes so even stores like Vaughn's if you look in the corners where they have the yogurt there's coconut yogurt almond milk yogurt and soy yogurt there's a lot of not cow's milk based yogurt and so then you get the probiotic feature of the yogurt without the the problems from the animal products in terms of cheese there's fake great fake sort of like kale chip cheese you know that kind of thing things that taste like Doritos if you want a pizza cheese I have yet to find a good fake Pizza cheese it just does not exist so I'm sorry about that cheese for me was the hardest thing to give up and it didn't make sense to me why until I found out that cheese goes to our dopamine receptors just like cocaine and drugs do so when you eat a bite of cheese your little brain cells are going oh you know so that's why it was so hard to give up the cheese so once I knew that I go ok that's that's why so unfortunately it's hard someone told me that Trader Joe's has a great fake mozzarella I haven't tried it so you might want to try that but in general it's hard to find a good fake cheese but there are great fake sour creams fake yogurt fake milk fake creamers just about all that other stuff mayonnaise there's great fake replacements for all of that

    This woman is wrong on so many different topics it’s disturbing. And she clearly has a PETA agenda. I didn’t think you could be well educated and biased in error at the same time. She is proof you can. Reminds me of years ago when a optometrist said reading could not cause myopia. Yeah right. 50% of college students, who start college not needed glasses, will need them by graduation. It’s even worse for students in China.

  2. TheFightaz Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    Blame McDonald's and other junk food for selling white bread, fries and milkshakes. All the destructive carbohydrates.

  3. TheFightaz Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    The cause of disease is not a healthy chicken breast or grass fed eggs, it is the junk food places that are spreading like the plague, McDonald's, Burger king, Carl's jr. and many. White bread, fries and a good old milkshake. Nothing but high carbs with no nutritional value.

  5. Rada Ranis Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    The main problem with most 'studies' is that there are TOO many VARIABLES not taken in to account. To properly test the relationship between meat and cancer the subject would eat meat only and water – nothing else, but that's not all, what KIND of meat – freerange or grain-fed, etc.

  6. Venice Bernard-Wright Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    Great information! This will certainly help me in going more plant based in my diet, taking it in small steps

  9. birage Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    I stopped watching this video at 35 minutes, selenium causes cancer? This woman is totally misinformed, and she obviously cherry picks her info/studies to support her claims.

  10. birage Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    Also, I don't know about anyone else, but she may of been overweight on that picture, but to me she looked much healthier, now she has a boney, aged look.

  11. birage Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    I don't think it is necessary to go vegan or carnivore, just optimize and balance your diet with foods that are free from chemicals and organic. There are studies and arguments to support both sides. Everything she says can be refuted as well as confirmed. There are plenty of meat eaters that have no cancer and are healthy, just like there are vegetarians with cancer and health problems. Everything in moderation and as natural as possible.

  12. Eric Van Royen Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    Thank you for the presentation as she is promoting the diet my health care practitioner advised me to follow in order to save myself from cancer in the eighties. Arthritis and allergies disappeared as a bonus
    However, she also told me that one of the privileges of living in a free country was that I had the right to choose weather or not to follow the diet. Thankfully, I chose to follow.
    To each his own.🌹

    Diet, changes the types of bacteria in the large intestine. Animals absorb the shit and piss of intestinal bacteria, to live. As time goes on, the importance these changes in the microbiome, will make themselves evident.

  15. LUIS VELEZ Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    African Americans in the Rural south were the healthiest Americans pre WW2 because they did not have the money to eat meat daily and ate a plant-based diet. post-WW2 more money more meat bad health. I have many 7day Adventist relatives and the ones older than me are not obese and do not have my health problems.

  20. yuri Bezmenoff Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    It's pure BS these arguments. Ex. Inuit people lived on almost exclusively animal foods.
    While they had a relatively faster aging because of high calories intake, related to the cold weather in their habitat, and a high metabolic rate not only related to the cold temperature, but also related to high physical activity, such as running beside the slide, while in hunting expeditions, they had a rather robust health and astounding physical performances. High metabolic rate and intensive physical activity are now well established in bio-sciences as factors contributing to accelerated aging. The argument here is against the claims that eating high protein animal foods are carcinogenic. It is not, if the food is not loaded with chemical carcinogens originated in the modern agricultural practices.

  21. JohnTinSF Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    The biggest problem for the average American is that a vegan diet is also a high carbohydrate diet. Vegetable while supplying proteins, also supply a lot of carbohydrates. The problem doesn't affect everyone, but about 1/3 of Americans are obese or diabetic with hyperinsulinemia. They are going to have a very hard time correcting their metabolic issues on a veggie diet. Until that problem is addressed you're farting into the wind.

    the deeper I followed her into her présentation, the more I felt I was in presence of a Radical, a lot of negative aspects of vegetables were never even slightly mentioned, lectins, oxalates, and why white meat is as bad as red meat was never explained. What a shame! I'll never go vegan, and I'll never date a vegan either, so bony, I prefer a right amount of muscle flesh

  25. RoboticusMusic Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    Eat carnivore, ignore this propaganda lmao

  26. McKenzie Family Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    All benefits mentioned can equally be attributed to removal of processed foods (carbohydrates and sugars). Why do vegans need essential B12 injections/supplements if we are meant to eat an exclusive plant-based diet? The remainder of diet not stated in protein studies. Organic grass-fed meat and eggs for B12. Why don’t we stop debating plant-based vs carnivore diet when we are clearly meant to combine high quality foods from both. Just get rid of the processed foods and stop snacking so you keep your insulin levels down: You’ll live til dinner!

  30. Sarah Denison Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    Why is UC publishing this crap. The China study is discredited because there was such a high mortality rate amongst the plant based group that Campbell deliberately relabelled meat eaters as plant based so he could get the results he wanted. The rest is disproven associative data that has been cherry picked to misled the public.

  33. bernadettefern Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    I have been a naturopathic practitioner for over 47 years. My main training and practice have been as a professional nutritional consultant and iris diagnostician. While studying in Canada for twenty-five years as a vegan (that's over 47 years with 18 years as a raw vegan). When I lived in Canada I studied with the Canadian Natural Hygiene Society learning.and practicing proper food combining and sequence for optimal digestion and maintained a fully raw diet. I do still see the value of transition diets as Barnard's because it is a stage of elimination, for health and planetary support. We must continue onward with more critical thinking about the impacts of choices to eat fossil-fuel raised, transported, stored and prepared diets. We can eat less, eat foods that grow indigenously, eat consciously for maximizing nutritional availability not just appetite and social habit. Consider how a raw vegan diet is superior in protecting the health of all life as well as in conservation of resources.

    The world is going backwards with everyone being brainwashed with nonsense from left and right. Vegetables are not and were never a sustainable source of nutrition. Meat is and has always been the most nutrient dense food. All the nonsense against meat is based on bias speculation. We are degenerating ourselves and our health with the vegetable nonsense. Ok, i'll go have my steak and eggs.

  47. crowesarethebest Posted on May 22, 2019 at 10:47 am

    Concentrating on a couple of studies is not good research. There should be comparisons of food consumption data, collected from populations from all over the world, i.e., a meta-analysis. That would be more representative and better research to learn what foods are best to consume. Also, genetics and environment are important factors.
