  • Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen Healthiest of Healthy Foods 

    In my book How Not to Die, I center my recommendations around a Daily Dozen checklist of everything I try to fit into my daily routine.  In my book How Not to Die, I suggest we try to center our diets around whole plant foods. Some plants are healthier than others, though. Apparently, you can live for extended periods eating practically nothing but white potatoes, for example, […]

  • Dietary Cure for Hidradenitis Suppurativa

    What is the role of dairy- and yeast-exclusion diets on arresting and reversing an inflammatory autoimmune disease? A landmark study suggested that exposure to dietary yeast, like baker’s yeast, brewer’s yeast, and nutritional yeast, may worsen the course of Crohn’s disease, an autoimmune inflammatory bowel disease. The reason the researchers even thought to do the […]

  • Is Nutritional Yeast Healthy for Everyone?

    Those with certain autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease should probably not eat nutritional yeast. Thousands of years ago, some yeast floated down into our flour and drinks, pleasing our palates, and we’ve been regularly exposed to it ever since.

  • Is Candida Syndrome Real?

    Does the presence of Candida in stool correlate with “Candida-hypersensitivity” symptoms, such as headaches and tiredness? And what happens when people are placed on a high-sugar diet? Despite its extensive use in the brewing and baking industries, only about 5 percent of healthy people—1 in 20—have anti-yeast antibodies in their bloodstream, whereas that percentage is […]

  • What Happens if You Have Red Wine or Avocados with a Meal?

    Whole plant sources of sugar and fat can ameliorate some of the postprandial (after meal) inflammation caused by the consumption of refined carbohydrates and meat. Studies have shown how adding even steamed skinless chicken breast can exacerbate the insulin spike from white rice, but fish may be worse. At 0:18 in my video The Effects […]

  • Decreasing Inflammation and Oxidation After Meals

    Within hours of eating an unhealthy meal, we can get a spike in inflammation, crippling our artery function, thickening our blood, and causing a fight-or-flight nerve response. Thankfully, there are foods we can eat at every meal to counter this reaction. Standard American meals rich in processed junk and meat and dairy lead to exaggerated […]

  • The Role of Meat and Dairy in Triggering Type 1 Diabetes

    Type 1 diabetes “arises following the autoimmune destruction of the insulin-producing pancreatic β [beta] cells…[and] is most often diagnosed in children and adolescents, usually presenting with a classic trio of symptoms” as their blood sugars spike: excessive thirst, hunger, and urination. They need to go on insulin for the rest of their lives, since their […]
