  • I want to bow to an incredible person that took Hippocratic oath and not use it as a decoration for his office but believed in it.
    A person that stood against government, food industry and so many others to help people around the world.
    For the past 7 months I have been a true disciple of Dr Robert Lustig, I'm a living proof, that everything he says it's 100% accurate.
    His hard work and his name will Echo for generations and generations to come.
    Please 🙏🙏🙏 keep up the hard work Doctor.
    Thank you.

    People like Robert Lustic are so rare, combining scientific integrity and oratory skills, the value of their work is invaluable
  • Thank you Doctor for being the real deal. No one educates patients any longer. I was on the verge of becoming seriously Ill. Obesity, prediabetes, hypertension. Yeast infections. Psoriasis and neuropathy have been my symptoms. Within one year I am in normal ranges and just beginning to realize how close to the edge I came….. if it ain’t a whole food it ain’t on the menu.

    One of the really important things this man does is say "I don't know" when he doesn't know. He's the reason I'm no longer a metabolic syndrome mess now, drug free, lost a crap load of weight and never tired. All from access to his lectures on youtube and not my doctors.

    Dr Lustig literally changed my life. I can no longer go into a supermarket and ever look at food the same.
  • @biancagadi786
    Unreal this lecture. Took me 18 hours to digest every little detail Dr. Lustig is trying to convey.
    Brilliant!!!! My goodness, I learned so much. On top, it started a thought process in my brain of epic proportions. Purpose, rethinking my life, goals, nutrition, and on and on and on....................Thank you so much. I appreciate this talk immensly

    The Hacking of the American Mind is one of the absolute BEST books I have ever read. It covers EVERYTHING from health, to politics, to mental health issues, to addiction, to the economy to personal growth and wellness. It’s ALL interconnected and Lustig does an amazing job of tying it all together in an interesting and often entertaining manner. I highly recommend it. I also have listened to the audio version, which Lustig narrates, and it’s a great way to ingest all that information.

    The UK NHS definitely haven’t banned sugary drinks from sale! I was on the cardiology ward of our local hospital for a week in October 2019 and a trolley came around every day with the (shitty) newspapers along with every sweet, chocolate bar and sugary drink you can imagine for sale to heart patients. Breakfast was sugary cereal, toast, jam (jelly) and margarine. Other men on the ward (one waiting for bypass surgery) were having their blood sugar tested constantly but weren’t getting any dietary advice. All this led me to research my diet - 4 months later I’m 18Kg lighter, feel fantastic, volunteering with the Police, walking miles and cycling again - all through a very low carb high fat diet - eating real food.

    Omg!!! This Doctor just said what been trying to tell my patients for years now @ 1:39:00. The link between alcohol and breast cancer. What an amazing talk!!!!

    I am a gray haired old gramma and I remember my shock when I had my great WOW epiphany moment that I had been lied to and used my entire life by the combination of Big Farming, Big Food processing, and Big Government which caused me and my life to be totally less in health, productivity, and enjoyment while also enriching Big Medicine and Big Pharmaceutical drugs to alleviate my lifelong poor health symptoms. Thank you Dr Berry
  • Wow! One of the most interesting, insightful, thought provoking discussions of our toxic modern lifestyle that I’ve ever heard. If everyone listened to and adopted even a fraction of this information and recommended activities we’d be well on our way toward healing our lives, bodies, brains and society!

    “You can’t fix healthcare until you fix health. You can’t fix health until you fix diet and you can’t fix diet until you know what the hell is wrong.” Dr. Lustig.
  • @FoodIQ
    Excellent discussion connecting the dots between our broken food system, our health and our economy.
  • @lindajustin9949
    Thankyou Dr Lustig for your integrity and for educating us.🥑🍋
  • I’m reading Dr Robert Lustig’s book on “Metabolical”. It’s so good I can’t put it down…
  • @TheJeanette53
    Thank you Dr Lustig for teaching this in a way I can remember it. I'll spread the word as much as I can. Love from Australia!
  • What a wonderful and informative speech the best I've ever heard I certainly will be turning my life around after this information I believe that you could be the man to help save the world.
