Lifestyle changes, predominantly diet, have been scientifically shown to have a much greater impact on chronic diseases than the drug therapies that are currently the medical system’s standard of care. On the other hand, diet has consistently been ignored or significantly down played by the medical system. This has been seen in the previous account (pdf) of critical health information . The three YouTube video presentations below illustrate this, and also introduce another medical pioneer Dr. Walter Kempner (of Duke University Medical School).

The first two presentations are by Michael Greger, MD, in which he shows and reads from clips taken from the medical literature. The name of the source can be seen in small print in the upper left-hand corner of the clips. These videos describe the effects of diet therapy devised by Dr. Kempner in the 1940s and 50s. The third presentation is by three physicians and one patient at the Joslin Diabetic Center in Boston - introducing contemporary practice.
