What Causes Type 2 Diabetes (It’s Not Sugar!) and How to Reverse It with Dr. Neal Barnard


According to CDC estimates, more than 37 million Americans are living with diabetes. Roughly 90–95% have Type 2 diabetes, a serious chronic condition that can lead to heart disease, chronic kidney disease, and vision loss. An additional 96 million are headed down the same path with prediabetes, and 8 out of 10 of them don’t even know they have it.

The good news is Type 2 diabetes can be prevented and reversed with basic lifestyle changes. In this free webinar, best-selling author and physician Neal Barnard, MD, will cut through the confusion about diet and diabetes and present proven, drug-free strategies for preventing and reversing this dangerous disease.

  1. I've been plant-based for 4 yrs – but slowly added in vegan "meats", and then real cheese. Looks like I'm jumping off the cheese wagon again. GREAT information! Thank you!

  2. Is this video going to remain on this channel for a very long time? I have listened to Dr. Barnard many times as well as Cyrus yet this video was extraordinary and I would like to be able to show it to some of the classes I do.

  3. FOK team- Very useful info. New subscriber !

    Can you please link the research articles ? I would like to share with my family and friends. Thank you !

  4. I'm a vegetarian but I don't like beans. Part of the reason I eat eggs and dairy is because I'm not getting any protein from meat or beans. What can I do to offset that within the confines of a vegan diet?

  5. Dr. Barnard mentioned a situation where your doctor mentions a plant based diet. I had to chuckle.
    My cardiologist told my wife and I that a plant based diet is really the best! But then he went on to tell us to eat more chicken and fish than beef and some dairy too. Uggghhh.
    At least since he said it, he’s heard it somewhere. That is a good sign!

    By the way, I love Dr. Barnard! Genus do knowledgeable and explains things so clearly. Thank you fir all your hard work! ????

  6. What lies is this video? Omg…. Focusing on cholesterol? Vegan? Rice whole grains?This is all propaganda to keep you on carbs, keep your glucose high, insulin elevated…to keeep you sick!!! Perpetual patients!!!

  7. This is very interesting, thank you for sharing. So much conflicting info. out there. The "Carnivores" are claiming that the high fat diet is curing Type 2? Eating a high fat diet with the absence of carbs. I would eat this way but I think others may be being mis-informed

  8. Excellent, excellent presentation.. one of those occasions where Dr. Bernard present slides with data . He is a master at explaining medical research in very simple terms that the average person can relate to.
