Choosing to eat vegetarian can be fun and easy! You’ve decided that the “whys” of a plant-based diet make sense, and now you need the “hows.” Dr. Michael Greger gives a lively and entertaining multimedia presentation packed with practical advice on how to eat vegetarian or vegan, from meal planning to nutrition to the personal and social aspects of making the transition. Whether it’s for you, your loved ones, the animals, or the Earth, Dr. Greger shows how vegetarian living is now easier than ever.

Michael Greger, MD is a nationally recognized speaker on a number of important public health and social justice issues. He has been invited to lecture at countless universities, medical schools, and conferences around the world, including the Conference on World Affairs. He is a general practitioner specializing in clinical nutrition and a founding member of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine. He is author of Carbophobia: The Scary Truth Behind America’s Low Carb Craze and the upcoming Bird Flu: A Virus of Our Own Hatching? Dr. Greger is a graduate of the Cornell University School of Agriculture and the Tufts University School of Medicine

    the biggest problem is mans love of chemicals profiteering mmm I am a realist so it stands to fact that if we all follow your plant based diet then you haven't got to be a Einstein to know that vegans/vegetarians are taking in more pesticides' herbicides insecticides fungicides most of these were born out of chemical warfare surely this cannot be good for ones health, so I ask where is the science in poisoning good food and its cancer and heart disease effects, and why do these doctors and the like give very little if any coverage of the biggest crime in my view against the human population poisoning for profit, I only buy organic but even that area is now permitted to use over 15 pesticides which are not all natural, look@@@ these chemical are designed to do one thing KILL ORGANIC LIFE the last time I checked we are organic life too, since the introduction of these powerful chemicals in the 1950s every major disease as rocketed allergies have rocketed through chemical interference in the food chain  I believe that plant based food are still the best way to go but you got to give all the facts and not just the bits you like

    Looking at USA in terms of its foods, pardon me, if I don't jump on the train at this exact moment. It does not give me a big confidence in CDC and it's data, when I look at american people.

    I LOVE DR GREGER! ALWAYS RIGHT TO THE POINT WITH TONS OF GREAT INFO! THNX.
    NOW TO THE LADY THAT PRESENTED DR GREGER (AND ALL THOSE IN HAWAII): PLEASE STUDY GEOGRAPHY- HAWAII IS NOT NORTH AMERICA, IT'S A PACIFIC ISLAND GROUP… THAT WAS INVADED BY JAPAN & U.S. AND TAKEN OVER FROM THE HAWAIIANS. THEREFORE JUST BEC IT'S AN ILEGAL STATE OF THE U.S. IT'S NOT IN NORTH AMERICA.
    NOTH AMERICA HAS ROUGHLY 3 COUNTRIES: CANADA, U.S. & MEXICO. (YES MEX IS NORTH FROM CENTRAL AMERICA).

    So glad Dr. Greger has stopped incorrectly referring to vegans as vegetarians. I am writing this in 2018. He gave this speech in 2011. What he meant to say in each instance when he spoke about vegetarians is: vegans. There is NOTHING compassionate about vegetarianism. In fact, the father of veganism correctly pointed out vegetarians are MORE cruel than meat eaters, who kill the animal rather than keeping him enslaved to produce milk, cheese, cream and eggs. Also, the health benefits he talks about are correlated to veganism, not vegetarianism. BIG difference.

    Of course vegans die of cancer, heart disease etc but trials, studies and evidence have proven beyond doubt that you are far less likely to develop these illnesses if you are are vegan as opposed to being a meat eater. However even if you discount the health benefits to humans or the suffering caused to animals, the really important reason for eating vegan is the appalling damage animal agriculture causes to our planet. Anyone who doubts the harm animal agriculture causes should really research the subject thoroughly before making crass comments. Read the World Health and United Nation reports and recommendations.

    I started eating whole plant food at age 72. My erectile dysfunction went away in 2 months. I have more energy, am more optimistic, and am much more friendly now.

    Vegan is a religion.
    Steve jobs never eat any animal products , and he is DEAD . CANCER !
    Fanatics ! Humans are predators > Look at eyes position !!!!!
    Are they looking ahead the way tigers are looking ? Ore Lions, or sharks ? Or wolfs ? Predators are looking ahead, can appreciate distance . Humans invented weapons long before started agriculture.
    Humans are predators ! In fact nobody killed on Earth more than humans .Humans are top killers ! We are predators.

    Eskimos  are  not  vegetarians  They   eat  fat, fat, and  fat  . Vegans are   terrorists.
    They  don't  have  heart  and cancer  problems  .
    Vegetarians  look  sick, they  are   mentally  slow  after  50.
    What an  idiot .   I  never saw  a  medic  in   life,  I'm  older  then  this  stupid  medic.
    He  is  bold !   Why  didn't  solved   his  boldness  before  lecturing others ?

    It seems to me like all vegans have a slightly unhappy look on their faces and don't seem to be as happy as non vegans.  Could it be the absence of a juicy hamburger and a chocolate milkshake occasionally?
