All refined substances tend to have 0 fiber and all micronutrients have been removed. In the market, there are refined substances which are sold as protein powders usually made from soy (tvp, tofu), wheat (seitan), rice, pea, hemp, etc. Better to eat real food like soy, wheat, rice, pea and hemp instead of refined substances.

Squeaky voice has many possible explanations including sex change.

Maybe Dr Greger has been overusing his eyes in reading too many studies or maybe he is just looking at too much porn.

Raw vegan diets (with b12 supplement) even though expensive are probably healthy since our bodies are still quite similar to our close ape relatives the chimpanzee and gorilla who eat mainly fruits, vegetables and some insects for vitamin b12. I used to watch lots of chimpanzee videos and they hunt small animals on rare occasions probably bec the leader ape wants to show off. About half of the tubers in africa can be eaten raw so I would guess our ancestors were already eating raw tubers and some animal products even before the invention of cooking. I am not sure if Raw vegan (with b12 supplement) is an optimal diet bec blue zones with longevity have diets which are a mix of raw foods and cooked foods.

From wikipedia article on lectin :
Lectins are ubiquitous in nature and many foods contain the proteins. Because some lectins can be harmful if poorly cooked or consumed in great quantities, "lectin-free" fad diets have been proposed, most based on the writing of Dr. Steven Gundry. A typical lectin-free diet excludes a range of foods, including most grains, pulses and legumes, as well as eggs, seafood and many staple fruits and vegetables. These foods do not contain harmful levels of lectins when properly cooked, and there is no health benefit to following these diets for most people. A strict lectin-free diet is unbalanced and dangerously low in many nutrients, requiring significant dietary supplementation to maintain health.

If afraid of lectins, just cook legumes, whole grains, nuts, seeds and potato. Based on the blue zones which have longevity, these foods are healthy. Mainstream science of the 2015 diet guide for americans also agrees these foods are healthy. Science is about consensus rather than cherry picking your favorite scientist. The 2015 diet guide for americans is pretty healthy. It even has vegan options for the protein group (beans, peas and lentils) and vegan options for the dairy group (vegan fake milks) but it needs to emphasize that vegans do need to take vitamin b12 supplement to avoid death. For the staple food group, should also include tubers (potato, sweet potato), winter squash in addition to whole grains. WHO says red meat, processed meat, smoked meat causes cancer. Harvard Healthy Eating Plate says limit dairy which is linked to some cancers particularly prostate cancer. China has already told its citizens to cut down on animal products by 50% for health and for the environment.

Humane Society of the United States is a pro vegan group that probably makes some compromises in engaging the mainstream. Vegans are only about 5% of americans so probably cannot avoid compromises.

To avoid the substance, can just avoid foods that have bromated flour or potassium bromate in their list of ingredients.

Raw vegans should not eat too much buckwheat sprouts which can cause people to become sensitive to sunshine.

I am not a raw food vegan but I have several raw vegan books : Becoming Raw by nutritionist Brenda Davis and Vesanto Melina, Raw Food Revolution Diet and Raw Food For Dummies. I bought them from the annual San Francisco Veg Fest. Mushrooms require cooking.

To prevent cavities, I use a tiny amount of organic aloe vera powder (whole aloe vera) in water as mouthwash. I have done this for a few years and it is very effective. 1 study says aloe vera is as effective as chlorhexidine which requires prescription in america. In the philippines, chlorhexidine can be bought over the counter.

Pretty much most packaging is toxic and just get most of your food from the local farmers markets. Even the receipts are toxic. Hard to avoid being exposed to chemicals if living in a city.

It is possible that some females find baldies sexy and like to rub on bald heads.

Maybe in the future, Dr Greger will become a cyborg and get some nifty bionic eyes.

Better looking eyes probably requires plastic surgery. As for hair, a wig is probably cheaper than hair transplants. Dr Greger should probably try to get at least 7 hours of sleep every day.

Both raw tomato and cooked tomato are probably healthy and have their own advantages and disadvantages.

I do not use facebook. I am self taught in nutrition so it is better to do your own research on the internet rather than listening to gurus.

A healthy eating pattern similar to the traditional diets is cheap staple food + some vegetables. To reduce or eliminate animal products, take b12 supplement. To succeed in being a vegan with vitamin b12 supplement, vegans do need to consume enough calories to avoid feeling weak. Whole grains are not the only cheap staple foods on the planet. North america has sunchokes. Central america has the 3 sisters: nixtamalized corn, winter squash (also their seeds) and beans. South america has potato, oca, sweet potato, cassava, yam, jicama, yacon, canna, arrowroot, beans, heart of palm. Cuba likes unripe plantain. Africa has yam, cowpea. Kalahari Africa has mongongo nuts. China has yam, soy, chestnut. Japan has yam (nagaimo), burdock. Korea has arrowroot. India has purple yam, taro, arrowroot, elephant foot yam. Some places in India use beans, pigeonpea and lentils as staple foods. Southeast asia has purple yam, taro, unripe plantain, elephant foot yam. Islanders use purple yam, taro, unripe plantain, breadfruit, pandanus, coconuts, upper stem core of coconut trees, sago (sagu) palm stem core, corypha palm stem core. Other possible reliable source of calories are celeriac (celery root), parsnip, rutabaga, water chestnut. Olives, dates and figs probably have enough calories to be considered as staple foods. Durian is popular with both orangutans and humans.
