While parts of the presentation are cheezy (audience clips), this doctor has the most holistic approach to health and nutrition that I've seen. I'd always avoided this guy because he looks like a quack, but he's evidence-based and is responsible for getting nutrition into medical programs, which is much needed to balance the pharmaceutical interests. The only thing I would disagree on is his dismissal of a vegan diet due to B12, which is available from nutritional yeast (a non-animal source) and from many fortified beverages (i.e. 99% of soymilks). He just needs to view the policy statement on Pubmed by the dieticians associations of Canada and the US affirming the healthfulness of a well-planned vegan diet. He does mention protein toxicity, and discussed diets like the paleolithic diet, high protein diets, [both bad] and the traditional Japanese diet and mediterranean diet [both good].
