    Just when people thought they were breaking free from the plague of BPA… Another reason to ditch seafood altogether and stick with plants!!! Thanks again Dr. Greger! 😀

  2. Meike says:

    Could you do a video about vegan keto diet and weight loss? 😊

  3. Karla Dawn Jones says:

    Another reason to not eat fish. And ANOTHER reason to use “natural” bath and body products.

  4. Alberto Scatto says:

    This is absurd we are killing everything and everyone who has a life and smashing it in every possible way, we need to wake up before the ecological collapse.

  5. jib the world says:

    another reason to eat plants, yes, but we should also ban plastics, please!

  6. Allostasis says:

    This goes for sea salt too.

  7. María J. Machado says:

    Suma y sigue….

  8. Celina K says:

    Why don't they just use a sugar scrub? ?

    They chose plastic over Hemp for reason to conquer the planet.

  10. michael seth says:

    Another great job by the doctor. Thanks

  11. hervva says:

    What about seaweed that is recomended in how not to die reciepies?

  12. Steven Priest says:

    Scrub your face with plastic microbeads? Need to upgrade to an oatmeal scrub instead.

  13. Plant Maven says:

    One of the many symptoms of unmitigated reproduction of humans. It can’t end well.

  14. lightdark00 says:

    Micro-plastics are in sea salt too! 😱

  15. Barrak Sadeq says:

    Where's all the Ex vegan claiming fish is healthy! 😂😂

  16. Ethel Chip says:

    Dr Greger you are an amazing person and your work saves lives. Thank you so much for the information!!! I hope we invent some way to clean up the plastic from the ocean in the future.

  17. Stay Extra Virgin - Health, Nutrition & Lifestyle says:

    Thank you for all your videos, they are very insightful and the best place for truth.
    I need answers to a few questions which I will list below, hope you reply

    Can we survive long term on this diet and will we get all the nutrients?
    Will this diet cause any issue with Blood Sugar, Insulin and Glycation?
    How many meals and calories should we have when starting out?
    Which foods are highest in B12, DHA EPA Omega 3s, K2, CLA and Carnosine?

    Many Thanks
    sorry for so many questions

  19. Chris Namaste says:

    We need more 5 minute annihilation on various stupid public policy positions from Dr Greger.

  20. Chris Namaste says:

    Synthetic clothes also contribute to this synthetic micro particle pollution. Please give us natural fiber swag please.

  21. SuperVeganWhat says:

    For anyone playing the nutritionfacts.org drinking game that's 4 drinks for 4 catch phrases. Really thought he was going to say " which we will cover now" at the end

  22. NutritionFacts.org says:

    For more on BPA, check out the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5TLzNi5fYd84yx3gqpQgPeAROeDTHAEX -NF Team

  23. Sean Freeman says:

    This video needs millions of views. Polluted ocean is the biggest problem we need to think about. But the leaders don't give a fuck. It's really sad.

  24. Crepito says:

    It’s everywhere, not just the sea. You drink it too, even breath it. This story is just twisted for your agenda.

  26. Hulagu Kahn says:

    How do I get my cholesterol from plant sources?

  27. Lil Vegan says:

    I had no idea cans were sometimes lined with BPA…. yikes

  28. Blacktician says:

    Such quality content

  30. Catalina Navarro says:

    Great work as always!

  31. Sanne says:

    Plastic makes me so sad.. I wish it was banned.

  32. LIFTING THE VEIL says:

    damn i was looking for high quality bioaccumulation graphics like the one used in this video, for my presentation on biomagnification of POPs up the foodchain collab video that i did with Mic The Vegan. it was epic and provides a much needed additional context to this amazing video by dr greger.

  33. LIFTING THE VEIL says:

    from the literature on diabetes: "Over 93% of total human intake of Persistant Organic Pollutants comes primarily from animal foods" – Endocrine Toxicology, Population Gendercide and Animal Foods

  34. justgivemethetruth says:

    How is it that these plastic micro-beads are still being made? Grrrrrrrr!!!!

  35. ranradd says:

    Apparently George Carlin was right about plastics. Nature had humans invent plastics as a way to get rid of humans.

  36. Iron Vegan says:

    Great presentation MIchael – I watched a movie called "A Plastic Ocean" when it was first released in 2016, and it detailed much of what you said here, as well as graphically showing fish that had even larger plastic debris in their stomachs and intestines (they had died from so much plastic in them that they could no longer digest actual food). This is critical news that everyone who eats fish should know if they are interested in their health and longevity. Thanks so much for once again sharing something of immense importance to humans! See ya' …

  37. Drew Henrichs says:

    How encouraged/worried should American fish eaters be? The ppm of BPA was pretty low on the non-canned fish for America.

  38. Char Covelesky says:

    As long as we keep using plastic it will keep polluting. We like the convenience but not the aftermath. Don't buy it, don't use it, we're not powerless unless we do nothing.

  39. White Kita says:

    every time someone tells me they eating fish because they think its "healthier" then other rotten animal body parts I always see little plastic bottles swimming trough there blood stream creating new cancer cells all over the place…..uukk!

  40. Eelke Aptroot says:

    I´ve heard some claim seafood is a turn-on for them…

  41. Whatsthis1do says:

    Can't use animals. Must become Vegan. Can't use plastics. Must use animals… oh man this is hard. Screw it I'm bringing back clogs!

  42. LIFTING THE VEIL says:

    So glad i gave up my “deficient vegan diet” to drink piss and eat fish instead! 😂🤣🥴🤦‍♂️🙄☠️

  43. Tanucci says:

    Is it true plastics used to be made from Hemp? How did Henry Ford make some car parts using hemp? Seems we should go back to using this to make plastics (and textiles) as I hear it biodegrades very efficiently.

  44. Johnny Hoffman says:

    The government needs to fund algae based DHA/EPA supplements in fortified foods. Until then we could all take algae supplements.

  45. Parminder Grewal says:

    Dr Greger, please eat some fish. You are dying of malnutrition. Look in the mirror.

  46. Peter Rabitt says:

    You need to do a video about plastic residues in sea salt.

  47. Shari T says:

    Scary stuff! The case for a plant based diet keeps getting stronger. Thanks for doing the research and posting!

  48. Nicky J says:

    OMG what the hell have we done to the environment! I knew it was bad, but I didn't realise it was this bad. Seems like advances in technology are a double edged sword. 😞

  49. Ichigo Kurosaki says:

    You know we have found this wonderful things that made our lifes so much easier. But we never bothered to think of a way to actually take of our waste. I wish someone finds a neat solution to this that does not lead to yet another problem.

  50. Abc 123 says:

    What about plastic ending up on important sea plants (sources of iodine), kelp/ dulse/ etc

  51. Person McPerson says:

    Wow that was an awesome break down of a lot of data, and I was wondering about the potential research into whether this is affecting the next generation with autism diagnosis…microplastics crossing the placenta! Disrupting hormones and more during potential fetal development is very scary. I encourage everyone to watch A Plastic Ocean on Netflix and find ways to reduce your use of plastics and buying of anything wrapped in plastic! #SaveThePlanet #BeVegan #ZeroWaste

  52. deavman says:

    Not related to the subject in the video : There is new research showing that for followers of a vegan diet, nuts might not be a good idea since it shows immediate stiffening of the arteries. Can it be addressed?

  53. SaleXchannel says:

    I sea the problem

  54. livingthedream says:

    But Sushi

  55. Daniel Dias says:

    how about seaweed?

  56. lordoftheflings says:

    Dammit Dr. Gregor, can't you just talk like a normal human being? What with the dramatic pauses and emphasis, etc. Just talk normal.
