    Many thanks for the link Graham, I went across and this article has received a lot of attention ...

    I share the Conclusion:

    "Conclusion
    Greger’s goal, sparked in his youth and galvanized over the course of his medical career, is to bypass the middlemen and feed important — and often lifesaving — information to the public.
    “With the democratization of information, doctors no longer hold a monopoly as gatekeepers of knowledge about health,” he writes. “I’m realizing it may be more effective to empower individuals directly” (page xii).
    And that’s what How Not to Die ultimately accomplishes. While the book’s biases prevent it from being a fully caveat-free resource, it offers more than enough fodder to keep health-seekers questioning and engaged.
    Readers willing to listen when challenged and fact-check when skeptical will gain much from Greger’s passionate, albeit imperfect, tome."

    It is quite a long article, but well worth the read, and isn't information perhaps the key word?

    All the best Jan

    He's become the current go-to guy for all the Militant Vegan trolls who were previously posting Plant Positive videos.

    Actually I eat a vegan diet along with my meat.
