Which Type of Protein is Better for Our Kidneys?

  1. The doc's final comment is unwarranted from the evidence he referred to.  That is, the anti-inflammatory effect of the med given was effective against inflammation caused by the meat, not "animal protein" in general.  I'd like to see the same criteria actually applied to a dairy and an egg meal.  Whatever we can know about causes of inflammation is extremely important.

  2. You just need proper vegetables with your protein and not to much red meat and you'll be fine this is dr. dumb-dumb signing out.

  3. For those times when I do want to eat an occasional meal with Chicken, or a treat like Soy or Coconut ice cream (the video also states that sugar causes stress on the kidneys as well), does the suggest that consuming anti-oxidants with my meal can help blunt the effects of meat protein or sugar treats and their effects on the kidneys. 

    I was thinking of Dr. Greger's video of Apples and how it can have 1,500 times the anti-oxidant power vs. a Vitamin C supplement alone.  So – I think if I do have a chicken meal I will consume fruits with the meal in addition to my usual intake of veggies.   

    Testimony to Plant Power.
    I was a life long 4-5 meals a day meat eater (as in 90-150 grams a day of protein as a weight lifter – I am now 47 years old) until last year when I went largely vegetarian based on my kidneys starting to deteriorate due to protein leakage, and the best news is that after 12 months my latest kidney reports came back and my functional medicine doctor said they now look amazing now.  Go Plant Power!  🙂

  4. What about Cauldron Sausages? It's vegetarian right? Is it as good as eating tofu? Or would that create a similar response as a meat diet and add to the onset of kidney disease?

  5. thanks ive been back and fourth from vegan and meat and every time i eat meat and dairy as you said my kidneys start to feel progressively worst over the hours. This information is motivation to really stick with my plant based diet because no matter what friends and family are doing my health comes first thanks alot sir!

  6. Was hoping to find out more about different protein choices since I can't have soy. Which vegetables are best? Thank you!

  7. I've seen so how many of Dr. Greger's videos now (some with vague/contradictory evidence) but I'd really love more than anything to see what the Doctor eats (I did hear him mention a morning smoothy once) in a day/week.

  8. My first ever YouTube comment – this is THE most useful video and info I have ever found. As someone interested in muscle development and having done some research, I was confused about muscle and health contradictory information and this really answered my question – I am going vegan. Thank you very very much for this info Dr. Greger.

  9. so creatine in small quantities, say 5g a day would be safe as it is not derived from animal products? Or harmful? Anyone know anything on this?

  10. Quite sobering. It would be helpful to have links to a site that offers recipe ideas so that people can feel positively motivated to change their diet instead of just feeling frightened.

    I think about all my friends who eat tons of meat all the time. It's quite sad.

  11. this too much protein fact actually propagated by meat and protein powder industry.. your need completely goes fulfilled by lentils and beans

  12. Nice Video clip! Forgive me for the intrusion, I am interested in your opinion. Have you thought about – Chireetler Avoiding Diseases Rule (probably on Google)? It is a great one of a kind product for learning how to stop kidney damage without the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my friend Sam got astronomical results with it.

  13. Except,as is usally the case, it's all blown out of proportion.
    People didn't go on a high meat and dairy diet just recently.
    We know modern people have become fat and diabetic from eating too much fat and pastries but kidney failure in normal weight people eating a lot of meat and dairy?
    Exaggerate much?
    Vegan propaganda ain't no different to meat industry propaganda, you are all full of shit.

  14. Or maybe just maybe it is the 22 man made toxic chemicals commonly found in factory farmed meats that is causing the inflammatory response, many of them are known to cause such a reaction. Sounds crazy but if I eat factory farmed pork I can feel the inflammation begin to numb my right hand (pinched radial and CT nerves), yet I have never gotten such a response from wild pork. This is the problem with such vegan studies, they are always comparing crap meats which many of us avoid anyway.

  15. Too much plant protein is probably not good either. Anything in excess causes issues. If one's kidneys are unhealthy, then eat very low protein low fat diet. That is more rice and potatoes and some fruit rather than the higher plant protein foods.

  16. soy equals death. stay away from it. Oh wait….. check your typical grocery products ingredients lables. It seems soy is in virtually everything. Yeah its bad, do the research.

  17. Not sure there is enough evidence that plant protein is better than meat protein when supplimented with enough fibre.
    I still wouldn't recommend eating any soy beans apart from organic fermented products.

  18. Good day Sir. I have been following your advice specially on the microgreens and have been growing and consuming those that I have planted the past 2 weeks. I have been slowly adjusting my diet to lessen carb intake and animal protein intake. I am slowly shifting my protein intake towards beans but would like to clarify if taking beans such as commercial baked beans with tomato sauce is okay? Also, in my lab tests, my uric acid is always on the high side of the range or a bit over. Should I observe certain restrictions with shifting to beans for my protein source? Thank you.

  19. i was put on a low sodium. low protein diet when i was 7 after experiencing AKD. a nutritionists told me i should never eat more than 40g of protein per day and consume as little salt as possible per day but never go over 2000mg. she also told me that i wasnt to count any protein or salt from fresh produce as part of my daily limit as the contribution from those sources didnt matter the same. it is now 22 years post infection for me and i have had zero complications from my kidneys since. i only have to take 1 bp pill per day because of irreversible scar tisse in my kidneys from the infection.

  20. Oh man! This was a lot of intriguing information. I just paid $45 for Dr. Axe Bone Broth with numeric to increase my protein to use as meal replacement since I dont each much meat…or have many meals in general. Seems like I must rethink my strategy.

  21. Incidentally, carnivores and omnivores produce absolutely enormous amounts of vit. C in their bodies and I guess this helps them lowering inflammation and dealing with the animal proteins too.
    I'm pretty sure all herbivores, folivores and frugivores (like humans) do not produce any vit. C but are forced to add it through diet.

  22. So, would the intake of human milk (i.e., diary) by babies harm their kidneys? Maybe we should ban breastfeeding altogether?

  23. basicly eat like a goat,  no thanks I'm human so I am an omnivore so my diet is varied how it should be.

    but thanks for your time anyway

  24. I don't know why nobody is doing cohort studies with bodybuilders to see if the high protein (meat) deat is leading to increased risk for CKD..

  25. This is assuming all meat and dairy are the same, especially as pertains to fats, and not considering hormones, health, and antibiotics. Also, it assumes some inflammation is bad, and in balance to benefits, and couldn't be a reasonable reaction for the body if not abused, without any significant negative consequences. To make broad statements without considering sources, amounts, and overall diet is kind of reckless. Many recent cultures (within the last few hundred years) studied in Nutrition and physical degeneration by Weston A. Price, that ate a balanced diet, but with more than random access to meat were quite healthy living to advanced ages with clear physical and mental abilities above the average person today.

  26. I wonder about the quality of the protein that people consume as well. I know this is about humans, but I wonder b/c of the increase in cats developing kidney disease since the advent of commercial pet food vs cats catching and eating mice and insects. Cats unlike humans require flesh to thrive, but i feel that the quality of the flesh many feed their cats harms them later in life.

  27. huge salads with many different veggies and lot of potatoes and beans beans beans! I could eat that forever, very yummy and a load of proteins very easy to digest, keeps you light but nourished for workouts 🙂

  28. I come from a small area with not that many people. Three of the males I grew up with/around died from kidney disease/failure related to methamphetamine abuse induced Lupus. Not likely to be from genetics for all three since all three were not blood related (it's a rarer disease) . America's methamphetamine abuse epidemic has to be raising the death rate as well.

  29. When you isolate protein sources and consume them separately the differences show up. Meat is a complete protein since it contains all the amino acids IN THE CORRECT BALANCE necessary to form tissue. Plant protein does not. That's why plants have to eaten in combination in order to get the BALANCE necessary to form tissue. As pointed out by vegan doctors a mixed plant diet works just as well as stand alone meat to form tissue. And as Dr. Campbell found out feeding a mixed plant protein diet to animals caused just as much cancer as Casein. It was only when he fed wheat protein exclusively in isolation to his rats that it didn't effect cancer. So, plant and animal protein has the same positive effects and the same negative effects. The key is not to get too much protein regardless of the source.

  30. At some point in our lives, I bet most of us have been asked the very stupid and annoying question, "where do you get your protein from?" Everybody who asks that question deserves bullets in their heads. I have wanted to do terrible things to people who have asked me that question.

  31. 🎬 1 📹 🎞 🗣 🎙⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Outstanding thank you for sharing❗️🥛🥩🥩🥩🥚🍗🍔🍤🍳…🦃🐓🐐🐑🐏🐄🐠🐟 Plant Wins for kidney…protein low sodium

  32. I know a woman who was diagnosed with lupus a few years ago, and she acknowledges that a vegan diet is the gold standard—and she'd be a vegan if only it were easier. Kind of like the woman I know who says she can't be a vegan because she lives in Flushing, Queens. I can't even. [facepalm]

  33. In one video, he says that green smoothies are good, in another he says yogurt is bad. In this video he says milk is bad, in another he says oats are good, then how am I supposed to take oats?! Oats ARE taken with milk, aren't they?

  34. Stop freaking out people meats ok in moderation a dietician told me your plate should had meat the size of a sardine can 3 vegetables (u can eat as much as u want) and a starch(beans) drink water. Then desert (nuts) keep sodium and sugar down exercise walk 2-3 miles you should be fine some days you should go vegan like a salad with a avocado maybe fruit as a desert blueberries strawberries bananas always consume some nuts about a handful or two that's it or put them in your salad I say ones you get your weight blood sugar cholesterol blood pressure in normal range enjoy the pleasure once in a while lets say once a month like a 1/2 milk shake w / burger w tomato and avocado wrapped in lettuce w mushrooms and half the cheese Habit is a good one no fries not MacDonald a quality 🍔 milkshake or a burrito with very little cheese beans( black kidney pinto or garbanzo) lettuce no dressing except olive oil vinergaret with no sugar salt remember what doc say need to eat meal with beans nuts lettuce something to keep insulin spikes down
    Life doesn't have to be boring and dull

  35. How can this be? Isn't death from heart disease only a relatively modern phenomenon? I'm pretty sure our grand parents and great grand parents would still have eaten meat on a daily basis. Could it be that rather than the meat itself, it's all the hormones and grain-fed diets they use on the animals that are causing the inflammatory reaction?

    I used to have more access to game meat, and I felt a lot better back then than I do now. I've been eating Walmart meats and can feel the inflammation. Is it just a coincidence? I'm not so sure.

  36. How about those patient with high uric acid at the same time?..
    Beans and legumes have moderate purine content
    However red meat are not..
    Thus pork is the choice to be given to them..

    Is there new research to defend that benefit of legumes and bean and other veg. In relation to purine content and it's effect to uric acid ?

  37. yeah,but the common argument i hear is that plants dont have all the necesary amino acids,is that right or wrong?

  38. indomethacin – used to treat arthritis and gout, abolishes the inflammatory response.

    So what is the downside of taking this drug?

  39. nobody should eat "unlimited intake of protein". This seems common sense to not eat non stop meat meals multiple times a day.

    The native american's had all the meat they could ever want.
    They followed the heard.
    Heart disease was unheard of.
    EXCUSE ME AGAIN! Some native Alaskan tribes live solely off fish and heart disease is unheard of…
    EXCUSE ME AGAIN! Some native African tribes live solely off meat and heart disease is unheard of…

  41. NutritionFacts.org + Glyphosate, & RoundUp bypasses the liver and attacks the Kidneys. Extreme evidence of this occured in India in which 1 – 2 farms where a substantial amount of the workers died from RoundUp – Glyphosate by passing the liver and attacking their Kidneys.
