    Yeah let's party like it's over 9000 years ago, so we could die of heart desease, clogged pores and diabetes faster than we would die since everyone dies in the end. Not to mention that plants don't have a central nervous system and you are just going to poop out the lectins out anyways. Eating plants is like cutting off hair, they grow back so no you're not eating someones baby.

  • So we should all starve because we can't eat the poor innocent animals. Now we can't eat plants..to be alive means you will cause suffering. You being alive causes suffering. It is unfortunate but true. And I tend to avoid meat myself…

    None of us are from America. Yeah tell that to the Native Americans that spent thousands of years on this continent

  • I am vegan, so a lot of the things that I eat he says that I shouldn't. I will keep eating what I do because I feel great.

  • I am a patient of Dr. Gundry's.  He is a very reputable cardiologist who has done a lot of research on the subject of lectins and our health..  I personally had inflammation throughout my body and pain daily until I took high lectins out of my diet. I have an autoimmune disease and this way of eating has kept my thyroid at normal levels for the first time in two decades.  There is something to it.  I found this interview to be extremely condescending.  Many cardiologists push statins on many of their patients (some who actually need them) and I have seen firsthand how their memory fades and their inflammation soars.  Maybe a diet change is worth the effort…..it was for me! I invite you to read his book and then judge for yourself!

  • Great segment! Awesome to see Dr.Gundry on the show! He has turned my health around for the better. No more aches and pains! Inflammation is down to a normal range and feeling much better now that I follow this lifestyle!

  • So im tribal half of my family line has been here for well over 1000 years and my diet that my body likes is very much different than the majority of America. I get sick from processed food and milk.

  • Plants don't write blogs or post on Instagram hating on humans for eating them. They don't possess consciousness and can't think about what or who they don't like. They grow and get consumed by other organisms and that's it.

  • I've seen plenty of Dr. Gundry's stuff.  I can see how our bodies need time to adapt to lectins from this part of the world.  If we keep more Omega 6's, our bodies will adapt someday.  It all evolution.  We are not all the same though.  Some of us hit the jackpot genetically, some of us are screwed, and most of us are somewhere in between.  I used to not be able to take raw tomatoes and maybe lectins were a reason.I think it is interesting that this interview is split up and posted that way.  In the other one, Gundry says to pressure cook the beans and he was going to add more before being cut off.  I think he was going to say soak them with a change of water and boil.  Dr. Gregger said you need to soak and boil kidney beans due to lectins, so maybe people should listen and learn and then respond.

  • People who can't tolerate certain foods can have a lot of physical symptoms. I know this for a FACT. So Dr. Gundry is onto something (the medical people don't want you to know).

  • I believe the doctor is right, but one thing many many many doctors and Healthcare professionals neglect is mineral deficiencies in our diet. I won't go into it here but as a warning to the good doctor personally and I hope he has someone Enlighten him on this fact; a head full of gray or white hair is a strong marker for copper deficiency in particular and zinc. Not only is copper deficiency A leading cause of white and gray hair IT IS one of the greatest contributing factors to ANEURYSMS. Check it out, do your research people and give the message to the good doctor someone!

    I had a boss who died at 102 and was healthy, she used to eat everything in a very small amount. Her husband died at 106 eating everything. I believe what is killing people is the amount of food they eat.

  • The lectin controversy is ridiculous. Asian people eats rice daily and they still look healthy and slim!!!! I went to China for several months and when I returned home, I lost 10 lbs! So the reason is obvious — Asian people walks all day daily. The American people have a weight problem because they drive daily instead of walking all day!

  • Wait a minute. Eggplant is good for you. Bell peppers have more vitamin c than oranges. Vegetables and plants help our bodies. This video is a lie. A lie from a group of folks who don't want us healthy, but rather in debt with doctor bills. And that's it…

  • His diet is basically a keto diet with a few tweeks. That diet works. For those who don't believe his theory, keep eating lectins.

  • gluten is a lectin hello! but the way i see it with these diets that are so abundant in our society. is that it usually pertains to only say less than 10% of people. So while the masses can eat lectins and be ok. I may not. Its called elmination diets. it should help narrow down your symptoms. but it can take a while to figure it out.

  • 9999 years ago, there were no immunizations, plants grew in natural soil under the natural sun and when it rained, these plants got pure water because the atmosphere wasn’t contaminated. These days even the plants are grown in unnatural mediums with man made fertilizers and hence their chemistry is changed. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT. In the Middle East cows eat sardines from the ocean shores and their milk tastes and smell like fish. Cows from India ate only green grass and vegetables and milk tasted so good and drinking milk was healthy. But now they are fed grains and animal byproducts and the taste of milk has changed along with its quality. If these plants have Lectin in them, it is from the environment they are in. God hasn’t created anything harmful for his precious creation, THE HUMANS.

  • Thank you Dr Gundry for thinking out the box, and at least trying to help a nation who is at the mercy of corporate food manufacturers, who clearly have no scruples….
