Dr. Greger’s YouTube speeches are often shared widely amongst vegan activists who are attempting to transform the diets of people in their lives who may respond more to health warnings than animal rights issues. His witty and often sarcastic jokes are engaging and the scientific evidence is undeniable. His book “How Not To Die” is the ultimate gift for someone you care about…I could not put it down and wanted to highlight almost everything I read!
In today’s interview, he offers answers to the most common arguments against veganism, talks about the 15 leading causes of death in North America, number one being our diet, and we will also talk about his role in the Netflix documentary What The Health, which is causing many people to go vegan.
This speech is worth sharing with your health-conscious friends who need scientific proof that a vegan diet is the healthiest one for us.
