    Give it a study about weeds, like stinging nessel, gootweed …I think they have more vitamins and nutrtions like normal vegetables

    A little confused on the carrots as I’ve seen drinking carrot juice “like mad”, in curing cancer?

  • Frank Black Post author

    I saw that Yellow Onions were on the list, but not Red Onions. I know in your previous videos you have said that the "purple foods" (red onions being one) are better for you and it you had a choice to go with the "purple version". I'm guessing they are absent from these results because they just weren't part of the tests. Would that "assumption" be correct? Thanks for the great information Dr. Gregor.

    I knew it was going to be Spinach and Garlic. But the others I got wrong.

  • Rayan K Post author

    What do you conclude? Do we eat garlic raw or cooked? How much and how frequent? I’m sure they had a number for that to do the tests.

    I'm wondering about all those vegetables that are over 100% and fuel cancer grow? What's up with that

  • Plant Maven Post author

    I hope onions are grouped with garlic; I won't touch garlic and I don't care how good it is. It's offensive and 3rd world.

    what method or preparation for these vegs are best for absorption and maximized nutrition?

  • Jo Drew Post author

    That nugget of info is the rosetta stone of nutritional health. Thx Dr.G

  • A G Post author

    I now eat raw garlic on a daily basis and at first people complained about my smell, but eventually they got used to it and have stopped complaining about it. Perhaps it was because I kept explaining how it helped to prevent cancer and maybe they were tired of hearing about it.

  • Meagan Collins Post author

    Spinach is not salad!

  • efivos Post author

    Great video, with a great reminder to eat a larger variety of veggies. But the pronunciation of radicchio was killing me: It's rah-dee-kee-o. TFP!

    But if the spinach and garlic are cooked are they still as effective??

  • elena rh Post author

    Can you please make a video about the gut/digestive problems That big vegan youtubers (rawvana, bonny Rebecca etc) have cited as reason to no longer be vegan?

  • Blankname Post author

    Spinach is high in oxalates, spinach is great for causing issues within your gut, don't fix an issue prevent it.

  • eddie pan Post author

    Yes! Validated what I learned since 2017. Keeping it going

  • David Mcgregor Post author

    That research doesn't mean the other vegetables won't help you with non cancer disease and conditions.

    What to do if one has acid reflux/GERD and needs to avoid onions and garlic?

  • NC RC Post author

    I just wondering if supermarkets didn't exist if we could eat this variety of foods from across the world…

  • jofenbat Post author

    Thanks a ton Dr. Greber. What a Champ!! you are!! Thanks for your outstading work, not only researching for latest studies, but presenting them to us with suspense and joy!!!

  • Dustin Hartlyn Post author

    Wait – what about Leeks?!?! It tied or beat the garlic in all the comparisons. I had no idea it did so well against cancer. I love garlic but knew about it's properties, I will be adding leeks to my shopping list.

  • Club Sanjuichi Post author

    Doctor, which vegetables and vitamins would you suggest for Hyperthyroidism disorder? I have hair falls and feel weak all day. Please make a video on that.

  • LightningStrikes66 Post author

    What about Sweet Potatoes? Or Malokai?

  • Allan Williams Post author

    Great presentation: Just two critiques of the paper: 1. There are no control cells i.e. do the vegetable juices also inhibit proliferation, differentiation or function of healthy prostate or healthy stomach cells etc at the same concentrations/incubation times tested on the cancer cells. 2. A true cell count in each well is lacking (the authors used a proliferation assay that is mitochondria based and plated between 2500-5000 cells/well) -that's a large margin of error, VERY large – up to 100%. To counter this the authors could have assayed the amount of genomic DNA (using the PicoGreen® assay) in each dish and expressed their results as cell no/ DNA – this would account for any cell number differences in each well of their multi-well plates and would normalize the data to cell number as wells with 5000 cells will give a higher reading than wells with only 2500 cells, regardless of the vegetable extract added. Perhaps future work could investigate the effects of the lead (most impressive anti-cancer) vegetable extracts in pre-clinical models of cancer. What about combinations of vegetable extracts or perhaps extracts added at different times? I'm sure they could find an MSc/PhD student/lab technician to give months of fun to.

    Does dried garlic work, or only fresh garlic?? I should still eat more fresh garlic.. it's delicious but I have a hard time knowing where to put it.

    How does this translate in vivo? Some say for instance that carrots have anti cancer capability, or even cure cancer:

    Can you produce a video and either refute or bolster the flood of claims that "micro greens are MORE NUTRITIOUS" than the plants they might grow up to be Most of these claims are being made by people selling seeds and supplies for micro green growing. Let's put their claims to the test!!!!

  • Erdem Kaya Post author

    How much garlic should we consume daily for protection? For treatment purposes?

  • Mike Lisanke Post author

    Dr. Greger, Do you ever comment on negative side effects of eating healthy vegetables e.g. spinach oxalates? It always seams there's no free lunch when eating healthy :-p Best regards, Mike

    Excellent info. Presented a little slow.

  • elys3 Post author

    Carrots are helpful at supporting toxic estrogen detoxification, cucumbers are hydrating, tomatoes support healthy gums (via your own videos) so we shouldn't completely discount them as additions to these other options mentioned in the video.

  • Elias sd Post author

    Some research said, plants don’t like to be eaten and it produces toxic to protect them. I’m really confuse what to eat maybe soil only

  • ParadymShift Post author

    Hang on though, what if you're not already fighting cancer? Medicinal effect is not the same as preventative effect. Do we have any double-blind placebo controlled studies that test for whether dietary inclusion or increase in consumption of these vegetables consistently in a diet actually has an effect on lowering ones risk for cancer rate, as opposed to slowing down cancer that is already present?
