Dr. Michael Greger talks about why a 40 year old vegan dies of a heart attack and all about omega 3's and B12 nutrition and why these two nutrients are so important to all vegans and everyone else.
Can vegans die from a heart attack?
Yes, it has happened to this 40 year vegan, vegetarian since birth.
Can vegans die of the same diseases that plague people on the Western standard diet of meat, dairy and eggs?
Sure! Dr. Michael Greger tells us why and how to prevent this.
We can prevent many illnesses and diseases as a vegan. As a vegan we are not full proof. In today's society because of washing our produce, chlorinating our water supply and soil being deficient we may need to supplement certain nutrients.
Some amazing facts, documentation, stats and a whole lot of scientific information presented in this lecture. Informative. I never knew this until I saw the video. Amazing video! A must see for everyone, including vegans and vegetarians.
