    as a psychiatrist I think these findings have a profoundly life-changing potential on my field. So much research is coming out suggesting intestinal permeability and subsequent inflammation likely plays a causative role in depression, anhedonia, etc.

      You are the sort of mental health professional I would be delighted to work with - I have suffered with anxiety throughout my adult life and I truly believe that diet has so much untapped potential. All the best.

      I went carnivore and got rid of deep depression, panic attacks, and anxiety! This happened in the matter of a couple of weeks of eating carnivore. Not to mention three small pages of other health issues I dealt with for years. Now I know what normal feels like....🥳

    It's actually insane how all of the health problems I've been suffering from for years disappeared in the space of a few days of eating no plants. I had previously been following all the government/medical advice, eating huge amounts of wholegrains, beans, mostly plants, hardly any red meat. I ate no processed foods but loads and loads of foods that are very high in lectins and oxalates.

    I now realise that I had been damaging my entire body, and in particular, I was destroying my gut lining. L-Glutamine was a miracle cure for me, which led me to research the carnivore diet, and it solved all of my digestive, inflammatory, and auto-immune issues. It even cured my depression.

    It is a shame that the advice from governments and health professions is going in the opposite direction. I was convinced I was doing the right thing before.

    This was such a captivating lecture. Thank you Dr. Paul Mason for the valuable information, and I thank the makers of this channel, as always, for making it available to the masses. It really highlights how much of our food supply, even when we jettison the carbs, is still pernicious to our health. The fact that much of these offenders exist among foods which have been traditionally thought to be "health foods", makes this problem particularly difficult to surmount. Just as we are still struggling to disabuse the public of the notion that grains are healthy, we are going to have to invest a lot of time to dispel the notion that many of these vegetables are not necessarily beneficial to ones health either.

    • E B
      E B 9 months ago +1

      If you are type 2 pre diabetic or diabetic than high carb fruit (maybe with the exception of 1/2 cup blue or black berries if you can tolerate them, I cannot) is a problem. If you follow standard dr. protocol then it is a progressive disease with no cure. Type 2 diabetics don't process sugar/carbs well. Fructose is actually the worst type for them because it is processed in the liver and chances are high they already have a fatty liver. High levels of fructose will only make it worse. If you do low carb or keto you might be able to manage it without insulin injections (depending on your circumstance) but in any case you will be better off.

    • Jamyn Cartwright
      Jamyn Cartwright Year ago +3

      @Eifion Phillips the body doesn’t differentiate between sugar in candy and sugar in fruit. That’s why there’s even a limit on fruit intake on low carb.

    • Helena Lovelock

      @Eifion Phillips fructose is damaging in terms of extreme insulin spikes etc. It’s worse than refined sugar

    • Eifion Phillips
      Eifion Phillips Year ago +2

      Sugar from fruit is not damaging. It's fats and sugars together that's the issues as fat will trap sugar, stopping the body removing it. God grew on Earth what we are meant to eat, fruit, potatoes are not the enemies. Gluten leads to leaky gut and bad health.

    • Jefferdaughter
      Jefferdaughter 2 years ago +6

      Dr. Mason is great, eh?! But our eating plan may not be as limited as we think. After all, we can eat beef, lamb, pork, goat, duck, geese, deer, rabbit, pastured chicken and eggs (if egg wash solutions have not been allowed to penetrate the shell, AND if vaccines grown in chicken eggs have not caused us to become allergic to eggs) - just to name the meats commonly eaten in Europe and the USA. Or were commonly eaten not long ago.

      American bison are now being farmed (most have crosses to domestic cattle in them, but that's OK). Elk and red deer are, too. Alpaca and llama are both delicious, though often lean. The taste is between beef and venison. Yak, emu, ostrich, various antelopes, reindeer... Such variety!

    I loved the Indepth 'why' and 'how', all these things interact.
    I've recently discovered Dr. Gundry's philosophies on lectins, and have started experimenting with his 'low lectin' diet.
    And my personal results have been quite immediate and startling. I can eat with NO indigestion now!... And it was not unusual for it to start after my first coffee of the day. It has caused me pain and sometimes fear (because of how bad it can get), nearly every day for over 3 decades. Now I can eat a full meal, feel good and sleep better... No waking up in pain. And I only need to slip up once, eat some toast, eat some fries.... And 'bingo', within 20 minutes.... It's back.
    It's hard to give up milk, I'm trying goats milk at the moment in my tea. Plus I still like a little sugar.
    But improving my diet to be low lectin has been a godsend!
    My energy levels have improved, my mental 'cloud' has gotten clearer!, (it's a weird feeling... It's like... My body is running smoother/better, on the inside - it's hard to explain).
    I wish I had known this decades ago. I have had lupus for years, my brother has asthma, my sister has been discovered to be allergic to glutin... And we have all suffered from reflux nearly all our lives - we were told our oesophageal sphincter didn't close properly, and that it was an inherited biological trait.
    The low lectin diet has proved this wrong.
    I was down to eating like a sparrow, or only eating one meal a day...becuase eating hurt so much, and weight gain has always been a problem.
    But now, I can eat three decent meals a day, no indigestion, and no weight gain, in fact, I've lost a few kilos. And my lupus isn't flaring nearly as much as it used to.... But I've not been on the new eating plan for long - it will be interesting to see if it helps.
    I hope this information, and more research on it spreads.
    So many can be cured of medicated issues, just by improving their diet.
    You are what you eat has never been proved more true. 💜

    This presentation adds so many of the missing pieces of information. Facinating! Why are GMO crops bad (higher in lectins among other things). How do lectins, chemicals, food additives, pollution increase autoimmune response? By weakening intestinal mucous and cell layer and allowing foreign substances into the body which triggers our immune system. Lectins can attach to our cells causing our immune system to treat that cell as an invader (autoimmune). Why can dairy be problematic, including A1 & A2 protein. Thank-you for sharing this important info.

Within 2 weeks of stopping consuming all plant matter, and eating nothing but beef, organs, bones, and connective tissue; I began to feel better and better. Chronic allergy and sinus issues/infections gone, sleep apnea gone, better libido, more stamina, way better dental health, and I also dropped 40 lbs!

      yes and no. Looks like you're creating a disinformation cloud. As far as a significant unjustified intervention...we were all subjects in a world-wide experiment called the low-fat, high carbohydrate diet started about 40 years ago. It didn't go very well. In my mind, it was a failed attempt to make humans fit the industrial food supply.

      Conclusion: it was an unethical experiment that didn't work and created a world-wide diabetes epidemic.

      I only buy yoghurt made in Greece because it's A2 milk. In Sweden they only have A1 milk so I can only buy heavy cream and creme Fraiche in Sweden due to its high fat content the different kasein doesn't matter.

    Hi Dr Paul Mason, I watched this presentation 3 times in the last few days, thanks very much for posting it. I have a question, when you was describing how a lectin traveled up the vagus nerve into the brain and contributed to Parkinson disease I could not decide if it was tea or pea????

    Month ago I did a blood test and my LDL was just a little above the limit...
    The doc said "You must limit the fat intake and switch it with vegetable oil... If it doesn't help, you'll need to take statins..."

    ...After some reseach, I found out that...:

    1. Fat is needed for body to function
    2. The "bad" LDL cholesterol has good stuff in it while "good" HDL has bad stuff in it
    3. The standard cholesterol test doesn't make much sense (you must test the LDL and HDL in detail in order to exactly know what's going on)
    4. Lots of vegetable oils totally mess up omega 3-6-9 ratio which is not good
    5. Vegetable diet only is a no no
    6. To much meat is bad but we should eat it
    7. Statin drugs are overrated and questionable for their actual "benefit" (again, those only impact on the total cholesterol and lowering, potentially good stuff in LDL which in the end lower your cholesterol but mess it up itself)

    So... I will continue to eat fat and meat... But eat lots of vegetables and keep it balanced as much as I can...
    No statin drugs for me... Hell no...

    ...Should quit smoking also, but that's another subject... And exercise (more)...

    I don't believe anything or anyone anymore... Qusestion everything...!

    Cheers from Croatia...!

      Cholesterol is not a problem and doesn't cause heart disease.
      The problem arises when LDL cholesterol becomes glycated by sugar, which leads to oxidation. Then the body sends macrophages to destroy the oxidized LDL, which they do by engulfing them. The macrophages then become what is called "foam cells." It is these which block arteries and cause Cardiovascular Disease.
      It seems that most of our health problems are caused by carbs.
      And "vegetable oils" which are high in Omega 6 fats are also a big contributor to chronic inflammation, which also exacerbates metabolic diseases of all kinds.

      My father survived a very mild heart attack in his 70s. They put him on statins, he developed motor neurone disease and died with 2 years. His mind was sharp to the day he died. Statins attack the nerve sheaths that are covered in cholesterol.

    "One reason is that lectins are most potent in their raw state, and foods containing them are not typically eaten raw. Cooking, especially with wet high-heat methods like boiling or stewing, or soaking in water for several hours, can inactivate most lectins"

    Have we overcomplicated nutrition? My grandparents and their parents never followed a restricted diet and ate what was in season. Processed food was not an option. I've been a full carnivore for 10 months and love it! But I'm starting to realise my body doesn't. Yes, it's all been grass-fed and I eat loads of fat and organs, as I said 'I love it!' However, the more I think about my ancestors and the more I have read and learnt about the gut microbe the more I realise we need to be feeding them as well, they need prebiotics, which unfortunately we don't get from meat. Studies have shown the less diversity in ones diet the less diversity in their gut! Yes, you can argue that diversity is there to deal with the diversity in your diet and if you just ate meat you have no need for the diversity, this is how I use to think. But, our bacteria do so much for us it stands to reason we need to nourish them so they can flourish, the healthier the person the larger the diversity of their gut bacteria. Since going carnivore my Psoriasis is noticeably worse and I now have histamine intolerance both of which are, or can be, contributed to gut dysbiosis. Would love to hear others thoughts on this subject.

      Thank you for this comment - if you listen to every specialist, you won’t be able to eat anything anymore. There are plenty of studies showing that meat is unhealthy too - I think it’s all about balance and avoiding too many processed foods and refined grains. It’s different, of course, when you become ill and have to figure out what might be causing it.

      I developed histamine intolerance on carnivore. I had to go very strict beef only for a month to finally rid myself of it. I can eat some salad now with no issue and don't need to be so strict. I would highly recommend a small amount of raw honey for breakfast, a few times a week, this can really help the gut biome.

    Interesting double benefit of lecithin for me. It is a base component for making 'home made' liposmal ascorbic acid. So not only is the Vitamin C doing good, the lecithin also. liposomal Ascorbic acid uptaken through the glucose channel, and lecithin helping the gut lining as well.

    But, then... Then, you broke my heart.
    You gave me an excuse to sneer at kidney beans.
    You gave me a reason to throw the disgusting greens across the restaurant because the waiter should have known how evil they are. Obviously.
    Then, you took away my candy. My precious bread. French fries!!?!
    Well, acceptable sacrifices must be made. So be it.
    I still have my medium-rare rib-eye and eggs. And, I have my spectacular, proprietary chocolate-strawberry protein shake that tastes like a blended Neapolitan ice cream shake. With my shake in hand, all can only be well.

    I still don't think ancient, heirloom variety of lectins in low amounts are all that dangerous. A little apoptosis is good. But we were never meant to eat foods the way we are eating them today. Fermentation, especially lactofermentation, was the standard of traditional processing and preservation of plant and even animal foods too! Dr Weston A Price's research proves the foundational benefits of this universal tradition.

    There is a big difference between active lectins from raw kidney beans as an example and those that are inactive after cooking. Cooked lectins are necessary for the gut microbiome. You want a healthy gut? Eat cooked beans which are loaded with inactive lectins. By the way, there is almost no plant food that doesn't contain lectins.
