    Kidney disease? Stop drinking alcohol,start drinking distilled water.If your urine does not look like water,or slightly yellow,you are at risk. Dilute your urine toxins by drinking plenty of water.

  • Rj Aquaponics says:

    Excellent video!  However, for meat eaters this truth will be quickly dismissed.  IF they are lucky they will listen once in their lives when a heart attack knocks the truth into them.  IF, because they will likely die and not get another chance.

    Dr G. Thanks so much for all you do! I very recently got your book and just now heard about your app. I'm on it!

  • Clawed1234 says:

    There are sulfur rich AA's in plant proteins too. For example sesame seeds and brazil nuts have more methionine than chicken, fish, and beef. Also there is much research for sulfur containing AA's protect against liver damage, toxicity, the greying of hair, and protection from the effects of stress. Why do you only show research that confirms your confirmation bias?

    Thank you Dr. Greger for your pregnancy videos. I am a birth support worker and was curious about the Brewer's diet and the increase of salt and protein to protect against pre-eclampsia? It's highly suggested that increasing salt and protein (especially animal products) will reduce the chance of developing pre-eclampsia. Thank you for your time.

  • Bea Muniz says:

    After being vegan for almost 2 years, my pre diabetes diagnosis has been long gone, hurray! I have suffered from renal colic for 16 years, and have been hospitalized due to the blinding pain. Since I started a vegan diet those terrifying pains are gone, yet every now and then I feel a slight discomfort. I know I need to increase my water consumption, but besides that, are there any foods that need to be controlled? My family and I eat a whole foods diet, I have never purchased faux meat. I make my own veggie and bean burgers, wheat meat, you name it… How long does it take for the renal system to revert, to some degree, to a healthier state? Thank you in advance for any help on this topic! Blessings…

  • Hveragerthi says:

    Very misleading. Ammonia is highly toxic to the body and so it can also be viewed that the carbonic acid formed in the body helps to neutralize the toxic ammonia. in the process an acid neutralizing bicarbonate is produced.

    Furthermore, the ammonia or ammonium being discussed as being produced is produced by the kidneys is from the amino acid glutamine of which meats are a great source.

    The fact is that ALL FOODS metabolize in to acids so according to his hypothesis eating any food would strain the kidneys.
