Dr. Greger is totally worth the wait!
Question for Dr. Greger: I have heard Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn say that evidence from the brachial artery tourniquet test indicates that green smoothies are not health promoting. I have not heard any other respected health practitioner in the vegan movement make this claim. I am wondering what your research shows; have you seen the study to which Dr. Esselstyn refers? Green smoothie promoters say that the amount of greens you can blend and drink is far greater than one can chew and eat in whole form in one meal, giving smoothies the nutrient edge. Do you think green smoothies are health promoting, or are they too processed?
Thanks, Dr. Ritamarie and Dr. Greger!
My biggest concern lately has been with getting a good Omega 3:6 ratio. I eat 3-4 tsps of ground flax every day, a little tunafish every week, and only use Canola or Oliva oil. I do eat fried things once in a while, which are made with bad ratios of 3:6. Is there anything else that I can do naturally to protect my brain health?
How do you know if you are healthy? If you have lots of energy, skin clear and smooth, love life, and don’t get sick, is there anyway to know if there is some silent health issue that you are unaware of?
What are your thoughts on food combining, specifically as it pertains to fat and fruit together? My concern is that the combination would prolong the clearance of sugars in the blood.
On your website, you have posted a video of a smoothie that contains both soy milk and blueberries. A couple of your videos have explored how dairy proteins can block phytonutrient absorption of both tea and strawberries and how even soy milk can block absorption of tea phytochemicals. Has there been comparable literature published regarding the effects of soy or nut milks of fruit/berry goodness?
What are your observations, if any, on the practice of seed cycling for hormonal balance? (14 days of flax, pumpkin seeds, and Omega 3 oil, 14 days of sesame, sunflower seeds, and borage oil)
PS, I have been very impressed with and appreciative of your site and knowledge.
If one has a tree-nut allergy, are there any good vegan sources of vitamin E besides avocados?
In the raw food world, it is recommended to soak seeds and nuts purportedly to help remove phytates and enzyme inhibitors. Several of your videos discuss the benefits of phytates, so is this not recommended?
