Do Vegetarians Get Enough Protein?

In Over-nutrition on April 13, 2019 at 6:08 am

from NutritionFacts webage

The only nutrient Americans may be more deficient in than fiber is potassium. See 98% of American Diets Potassium-Deficient. For more on how S.A.D. the Standard American Diet is, see Nation’s Diet in Crisis.

Americans eating meat-free diets average higher intakes of nearly every nutrient. See my video Nutrient-Dense Approach to Weight Management.

Isn’t animal protein higher quality protein, though? See D Greger’s videos:

For more on protein, see: Plant Protein Preferable and Prostate Cancer Survival: The A/V Ratio.

And for a few on fiber:

Why You Should Care About Nutrition

Subscribe to Dr. Greger’s free nutrition newsletter at http://www.nutritionfacts.org/subscribe and get a free excerpt from his latest NYT Bestseller HOW NOT TO DIE. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from his books, DVDs, and speaking go to charity).

DESCRIPTION: Most deaths in the United States are preventable and related to nutrition.

This video is part of an experiment to find ways to appeal to those new to the site. So much of what I do is targeted towards those who already know the basics, but in the user survey about a thousand of you filled out a few weeks ago, many of your asked for me to take a step back and do some videos targeted more towards those new to evidence-based nutrition.

So with the volunteer help of videographer Grant Peacock (http://www.gpi.tv/) I came up with ten introduction and overview-type videos for both new users to orient themselves, and for long-time users to use to introduce people to the site. If you missed The Story of NutritionFacts.org (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-s…) check that out, and stay tuned for:

• Taking Personal Responsibility for Your Health (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/takin…)
• The Philosophy of NutritionFacts.org (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/the-p…)
• Behind the Scenes at NutritionFacts.org (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/behin…)
• How Not to Die from Heart Disease (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-n…)
• How Not to Die from Cancer (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-n…)
• How Not to Die from Diabetes (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-n…)
• How Not to Die from Kidney Disease (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-n…)
• How Not to Die from High Blood Pressure (http://nutritionfacts.org/video/how-n…)

What we’re going to do is alternate between these broader overview-type videos and the regularly scheduled content so as not to bore those who just crave the latest science.

Have a question about this video? Leave it in the comment section at http://nutritionfacts.org/video/why-y… and someone on the NutritionFacts.org team will try to answer it.

Preventing sight-related aging problems with Diet (evidence-based)

In Over-nutrition on May 18, 2012 at 8:26 am

Based on recent papers, Dr Greger concludes that “a healthy diet may not only prevent the complications of diabetes, but also reduce the risk of age-related macular degeneration, another common cause of blindness.”
