  1. You are a gift sent to us, Dr. Furhman! Like your observations and how you explain how the science works! Thank you!

  2. This Dude is A Legend. I eat very close to a nutritarian diet. If you have the time give my channel a quick look.
    All The Best,

  3. polyunsaturated fats
    In the 1940s, the agricultural chemists found that they could fatten their animals faster if they poisoned their metabolic systems with an anti-thyroid drug. The found the animals would get fat on very little food. Yet, the drug turned out to leave a carcinogenic residue in the meat.
    Farmers soon found out that corn and soybeans containing polyunsaturated fats (PUFA) would do the same as the anti-thyroid drugs and suppress the respiration of the animals and make them get fat on very little food. In the process they found that they were getting these yellow-fat diseases and brain degenerations (degeneration of the gonads, infertility, and so on).

    Around the same time the medical people noticed that the cholesterol was lowered in the process of eating a lot of these polyunsaturated fats. And that led to the spreading of the marketing of unsaturated fats to the human food supply, rather than just for the fattening of farm animals. And since people didn't want to gain weight on the least amount of food, they needed a new reason for selling their fats to humans. And, lowering cholesterol became the excuse in humans.

    But the agriculturists knew all through the 1940s that corn and soy oils were very fattening, and eventually, very toxic. But since they sold their animals as soon as they reached a marketable size, they didn't care (if they died later; they were killing them before they had the chance to die of the degenerative diseases)." -RP

    Bottom line: Although,the polyunsaturated fats will lower cholesterol (by suppressing the immune system), one of their main functions is to fatten animals, including you if you consume them, on lower calories. This is why farmers use high polyunsaturated fats foods like corn and soy to fatten their animals.
    What foods are high in polyunsaturated oils ? Vegetables, seed and nut oils. Nuts, seeds, soy, corn, fatty fish like salmon, omega 3 and 6 oils, fish oil, and animals that are fed a high polyunsaturated diet .

  4. So far I've lost 90 pounds on a vegan diet, one I started two years ago from Dr Esselstyn's book, and reversed my high blood pressure, high cholesterol, chest pain, colitis, asthma and even my distance eye site no longer requires prescription glasses. I went on Dr. Furhman's gbombs diet very strictly four weeks ago, and I'm loosing more weight and feeling even better. Nutritarian all the way now, but no animal products at all, though he allows it to some very small extent. I'm too afraid to ever eat that way again, at any level.

  5. He has such great insights on how to eat and live. However, I think he is over zealous on his comments about being able to lower bp meds and blood sugar meds so quickly. It takes way longer than he is suggesting from my experience–personally and others I know that have tried this. Things don't change so quickly so don't get your hopes up! 🙏🏽

  6. t's unfortunate that you are promoting a doctor who chooses to do what 99.9% of doctors would never do- blatantly violate the AMA code of ethics and sell supplements for a profit. This is truly a black eye on the medical profession and makes people think doctors are only in it for the money.
