If Dr Greger did not have a pro vegan bias, he would probably also recommend the non vegan diets of the pritikin program and the dr dean ornish program both of which are recognized by medicare. Can also recommend most traditional diets like africa diet, tarahumara indian diet, rural china diet, rural japan diet, etc. which are all much healthier than the standard american diet.

If Dr Greger did not have a pro vegan bias, he would probably be more similar to the 2015 diet guide for americans which recommends several healthy eating patterns like dash diet, mediterranean diet, ovolactovegetarian, vegan with b12, etc. Jesus probably recommends the mediterranean diet. It is possible to be more pro vegan if you use environmental concerns such as global warming and water shortages, and public health concerns like antibiotic resistant bacteria from livestock factory farms. That omnivores below age 50 should take b12 supplement is just vegan propaganda.

I heard WHO has a minimum fat recommendation in order to get enough of the essential omega 3 fats. Women who are preparing for pregnancy, during pregnancy and for nursing, probably need more fat in the diet.

If like to consume more cholesterol for whatever reasons, probably healthier sources are real fresh coconuts (drink the coconut water and scoop the coconut) and cacao nibs. I ate lots of fresh coconuts as snacks from travelling street vendors when I was a kid. 2-3 servings max per week of small seafood like anchovies, sardines, clam, mussel, oyster to avoid pollution and radiation.

wikipedia ketogenic diet adverse effects:
The ketogenic diet is not a benign, holistic or natural treatment for epilepsy; as with any serious medical therapy, there may be complications. These are generally less severe and less frequent than with anticonvulsant medication or surgery. Common but easily treatable short-term side effects include constipation, low-grade acidosis and hypoglycaemia if there is an initial fast. Raised levels of lipids in the blood affect up to 60% of children and cholesterol levels may increase by around 30%. This can be treated by changes to the fat content of the diet, such as from saturated fats towards polyunsaturated fats, and, if persistent, by lowering the ketogenic ratio. Supplements are necessary to counter the dietary deficiency of many micronutrients.
Long-term use of the ketogenic diet in children increases the risk of slowed or stunted growth, bone fractures and kidney stones. The diet reduces levels of insulin-like growth factor 1, which is important for childhood growth. Like many anticonvulsant drugs, the ketogenic diet has an adverse effect on bone health. Many factors may be involved such as acidosis and suppressed growth hormone. About 1 in 20 children on the ketogenic diet will develop kidney stones (compared with one in several thousand for the general population). A class of anticonvulsants known as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors (topiramate, zonisamide) are known to increase the risk of kidney stones, but the combination of these anticonvulsants and the ketogenic diet does not appear to elevate the risk above that of the diet alone. The stones are treatable and do not justify discontinuation of the diet. Johns Hopkins Hospital now gives oral potassium citrate supplements to all ketogenic diet patients, resulting in a sevenfold decrease in the incidence of kidney stones. However, this empiric usage has not been tested in a prospective controlled trial. Kidney stone formation (nephrolithiasis) is associated with the diet for four reasons:
Excess calcium in the urine (hypercalciuria) occurs due to increased bone demineralisation with acidosis. Bones are mainly composed of calcium phosphate. The phosphate reacts with the acid, and the calcium is excreted by the kidneys.
Hypocitraturia: the urine has an abnormally low concentration of citrate, which normally helps to dissolve free calcium.
The urine has a low pH, which stops uric acid from dissolving, leading to crystals that act as a nidus for calcium stone formation.
Many institutions traditionally restricted the water intake of patients on the diet to 80% of normal daily needs; this practice is no longer encouraged.
In adolescents and adults, common side effects reported include weight loss, constipation, dyslipidemia and, in women, dysmenorrhea.

I have to agree that anchovies and sardines about 2-3 servings per week are probably still safe but pollution and radiation are increasing fast in our environment bec of of overpopulation and overconsumption, and seafood will not last long anymore bec of overfishing and global warming. The latest pollution news I heard was about micro plastics in food and in our water supply. For b12 and zinc, the best sources might be clam, mussel and oyster.
For vitamin d, can try sunshine, cooked mushrooms (d2) like wild morel, wild chanterelle, brands of mushroom with vitamin d2, lichen (d3). Can shine uvb lamp on dead mushrooms or yourself. Exercise in sunshine should help prevent depression and alzheimer's. Cooked mushrooms are also a source of selenium and vanadium.

My impression is big pharma and big ag does look prettier than your local friendly neighborhood quacks and sincere people who are receiving telepathic messages from alien gods who have absolute truth that the earth is flat.

The lectin free diet and alkaline diet are obviously pseudoscience and quack since they demonize many healthy foods like whole grains and legumes (paleo diet is also pseudoscience). The seed free paleo diet of Matt Lalonde is pseudoscience and quack. Mainstream science says whole grains and legumes and nuts and seeds are all healthy. According to the alkaline diet, even carrot is acidic and should not be eaten so it is obviously pseudoscience.
The unproven claims of the keto diet, the ban on whole grains and legumes by the paleo diet are all examples of pseudoscience and quack bec they are not supported by mainstream science consensus. Paleo diet pioneer Boyd Eaton actually consumes whole grains and legumes since he is aware our ancestors in africa did eat whole grains and legumes even before the invention of cooking and before agriculture. Since civilizations drove the hapless indigenous groups to desert areas and mountainous areas where the indigenous groups are unable to do much agriculture, Boyd Eaton is misled by studies of surviving indigenous groups who have high percentage of animal products.

Since all animal products have 0 fiber and seem to have less micronutrients compared to plants, my strategy is to eat less animal products and just take vitamin b12 supplement as a compromise. I tend to view animal products as just expensive junk food so I do not like to spend money on animal products. I tend to follow the 1 simple rule of Dr Bill Harris of the vegetarian society of hawaii, if it has no fiber, do not eat it (the exception to the rule is the refined substance called vitamin b12 supplement).

The 1949 okinawa poverty diet did have some slight deficiencies (b12, b2, zinc, calcium). With the increase in the standard of living, the old people in okinawa have increased their seafood and pork. Vegan nutritionists do say older people need more protein than young people.

Comparing agriculture groups (blue zones) that have longevity who eat mostly plants and oppressed indigenous groups who have been driven to less desirable lands so unable to do agriculture and had to eat more animals, I would guess that it is a better idea to eat more plants rather than animals.

It is possible the earth is shaped like a cube like the Bizarro World found in the old Superman comics.

The main problem with animal products is probably not cholesterol but all animal products have 0 fiber and are just expensive junk food.

I heard there are protestant fundamentalists who believe in a flat earth and that the sun revolves around the earth.

The best argument for going vegan is to help delay global warming and to help delay human extinction. Most global warming scientists now recommend going vegan. Just take vitamin b12 supplement if reducing or eliminating animal products. About 15% of global warming is from livestock (mostly cattle). Every day, many people die from antibiotic resistant bacteria. My younger sister died from hospital bacteria in 1992. Livestock factory farms are a source of pandemics and killer bacteria. To be a healthy vegan, it is important to avoid refined substances (oil, sweeteners, juice, refined flour, protein powder, salt) and processed foods and just buy most of your foods from the local farmers markets and the produce section plus cheap staple foods like tubers (potato, sweet potato) and or whole grains.

Mainstream science found in the 2015 diet guide for americans promotes several healthy eating patterns like dash diet, mediterranean diet, ovolactovegetarian and vegan with b12, so just pick one. Or follow the Harvard Healthy Eating Plate.
The politicians banned environmental concerns and global warming concerns from the 2015 diet guide for americans. The mainstream science does support vegan diet with b12 in order to delay global warming and to delay human extinction from global warming.

Science is about consensus so it is safer to consider what mainstream science says about nutrition instead of cherry picking studies. It is easy to prove anything by cherry picking.

The mainstream science found in the 2015 diet guide for americans is ok since it promotes several healthy eating patterns like dash diet, mediterranean diet, ovolactovegetarian, vegan with b12, etc. The politicians banned environmental concerns and global warming concerns from the 2015 diet guide for americans. The mainstream science does support vegan diet with b12 in order to delay global warming and to delay human extinction from global warming. Paleo diet that says avoid whole grains and avoid legumes is pseudoscience since mainstream science says whole grains and legumes are healthy. Boyd Eaton is aware the pre agriculture diet in african does include whole grains and legumes even before the invention of cooking and the africa paleo diet of Boyd Eaton does include whole grains and legumes.

Whole grain bread should be a great source of calories altho maybe have plenty of liquids since bread is quite dry. I sometimes dip whole grain bread in coconut water. I prefer steamed bread over baked bread. Instead of tofu, maybe try real soy like edamame, tempeh, natto, and soy sprouts (requires cooking). The tarahumara indians could run for several days straight by bringing nixtamalized corn altho I am not sure if corn tortillas are popular with other runners as food on the go. Tarahumara runners ate mostly the 3 sisters: nixtamalized corn, beans and winter squash (also their seeds) plus some vegetables like nopal cactus.

People who have diabetes and heart disease and cancer probably use up more health care money than people who die in their sleep from old age. As for overpopulation, overpopulation will be solved without any effort when we run out of resources.

It is a good idea to invest in health bec if somebody dies early bec of obesity, the money has to be left to family members who the dead person may or may not like. Vote for more physician assisted suicide in all of the states of america. To get out of the matrix, vote for the red pill.

I heard rumors one of the chief justices of the supreme court wants to move to New Zealand. The almighty holy american empire is monopolizing lots of resources of the planet so lots of people want to move to america to enjoy a higher standard of living. I heard america has about 600 military bases on the planet which is used to monopolize the resources of the planet. Europeans are probably having a healthier, better life and happier life than most americans since poverty has increased in america when the middle class got wiped out. America is also number 1 on the planet for obesity so it is better to eat healthy. Vote for obese presidents.
