  • I love League game itself so much but these product give me a deeper feeling about this game. Not only a game, it’s stories, memories

  • Then that is why you build up your strength by easy milage not just hard session and that is what the Kenyans do from little hours easy running every day

  • Been event director, running 27 years. I agree, you push heart so fast in 5k, you cant believe heart rate, in marathon, running under 6. Min pace, then race last miles, lay on grass, watch ants. Lol. Then go hike all afternoon. Lucky or not had a bone come out of upper knee, asteocodrites desicans, so i had to train smarter, was still fast with lower miles, still 20 years or races. Now i bike. Walk dog. Most hyper people have health problems of some sort eventually. It was a great time, youth is wadted on the young.

  • I disagree with his point as i personally would get no benefit from only running 1 or 2 miles, it wouldnt give that runners high. would rather enjoy life than try and drag it out bored and stressed into my late 90s lol

  • I’d do a lot of things if the price of healthcare wasn’t 10x the ratio of the average income. Even with insurance, deductibles are crushing.,

  • He never mentions other factors that obviously contribute to heart health. Food, stress, sleep, environmental conditions and occupational factors to name a few. Something to think about!

  • Hi Dr. Berry:) how does this test compare to an angiogram? Can it be done instead? I was told by my cardiologist after my nuclear stress test that I “may possibly” have some build up and he wants to do an angiogram. I’m not onboard, I have no symptoms that he asked me about, no dizziness, no shortness of breath or chest pain, so why risk it? I needed clearance from him for shoulder surgery but he wouldn’t clear me without the angiogram. SO I cancelled the surgery and started the carnivore diet, thanks to you:) and turns out I don’t need the surgery after all! My pain is drastically reduced! But I’m still wondering (worried) about the possibility of this blockage or build up he was talking about. This test doesn’t scare me like having an angiogram. So that’s why I’m asking. Oh, I’m 58 and I’ve lost 70 lbs and have 50 more to lose. Will this test give me the same answers that an angiogram will?

  • This battle would only be fair if a computer was allowed to use only as much energy as a human does at any given time during the game. So a cap of 600W I think is a good start. Hypothetically if you were to put x times that then that is a game of 10 humans to 1 human. Let the software be as efficient as needed to win the game with a max of 600W or less.

  • Поистине гений и легенда нынешнего футбола, практически никто несравним с его талантом, он лучший, и всегда будет лучшим. 10 номер, капитанская повязка, 6 ЗМ, столько же ЗБ доставлены по назначению

  • A rambling waste of time. This apparently super intelligent guy is all over the map with his presentation. He may be a great cardiologist but he sucks at getting his points across and summarize his key points.

  • This is beyond LoL tbh. It is made by their media but it adresses all the “competitive gamers” in the world. And all these gamers know the feeling.

  • I live in Québec, Canada, and believe it or not, I first had to convince my doctor to have me do a CAC test, then I am stuck as I cannot find one place in the province where they actually do it. They appear to know better and must be because the LDL score is SO reliable. It is frustrating to say the least. Thanks Dr Berry for the information, I just wish you knowledge would cross over and convince some of doing this test….

  • I had a CAC about 6 years ago and the score was over 1500. I went to a cardiologist and he did a catheterization which showed no blockages. I had another about 2 years ago (just after starting Keto) that was over 2000. Again I went to a cardiologist who found I had an aortic valve problem. During the ensuing tests on my valve I had another catheterization which again showed no calcium buildup. I’m not sure why my scores come back so high. I had my valve replaced a year ago in April and have been Keto for over 2 years and lost 100 pounds. I paid $50 for my last CAC test in Nashville.

  • FYI for Lee Sedol:
    Youngest of 3 brothers and 2 sisters
    Grew up in a large farmland on a small remote island
    His father, an elementary school teacher, taught him go at the age of 5
    By the age of 7 he beat his father
    He joined the Korean baduk org by tagging along with his older brother
    His brother apparently lost interest in go when Sedol started taking over. He gave up and studied instead and got into Seoul University, the best university in Korea
    Sedol is a middle school drop out (go students drop out of school and train at national go centers)
    According to Sedol his vocal cord became damaged when he was diagnosed with aphasia, an impairment of language. It happened while he was young, living away from his parents in Seoul. The daily stress he had to face and lack of care led him to not treat it and that’s when his vocal cords became damaged.
    Is a supporter of current left wing Korean president Moon
    Hails from a go family:
    eldest amateur 5 dan (Ewha University Korean language graduate, elite school for girls)
    second pro 9 dan (currently a go judge. He was just as an elite as Sedol was, but decided to step down and support his brother)
    third amateur 6 dan (Another Ewha graduate, former editor of go magazine in Korea)
    fourth amateur 5 dan (the one who went to Seoul university)
    fifth pro 9 dan Lee Sedol
    Is an idiot for his daughter (Korean expression for a father hopelessly in love with his daughter)

    Lee Sedol quotes
    “I don’t have the confidence. The confidence to lose”
    “I’m sorry I won at a Chinese tournament”
    “humans didn’t lose. Lee Sedol lost” after losing game 3
    “I don’t know the population of Bigeum island (his hometown). It’s not like I’m the chief of that island.”

  • If this isn’t Anime material i don’t know what is:

    1) Introduction to AI and what can they do, how they play simple games and how they are not quite there to tackle extremely complex games like GO
    2) Introduction to GO, rules and our GO champions
    3) Introduction to the small team that tackled the challenge to make an advanced AI to get on a professional level
    4) The challenge with the european champion and the victory, a validation that what the small team is doing can work
    5) We see both the perspective an thoughts of the EU champion and the team as well as experts on the significance of this and the challenge still to face
    6) Introduction to the highest wall of GO to face, the korean 9-dan champion as well as the cultural significance and impact that go has in eastern countries.
    7) Shonen moment where the team and the EU champion become friends and start to tackle on the challenge
    8) The challenge is handed out to the World champion, excitement, fear of failure, drive to win, general stuppor by the public and the calm before the storm.
    9) The first match, was it all for nothing, untill, the second move is made, a head to head match conquered by the AI, maybe by the underestimating the machine? only the champion knows, following that the victory and excitement of the team and the AI sustainers as well as curious onlookers.
    10) The second match, another close one pointwise untill the AI makes an original move, one that no expert would want to make, the moment where the champion sees in the AI more than a simple machine, descibing the move that lead to his defeat as “beautifull”, everyone is stunned and cannot believe it, everyone awayting the third match
    11) The match where the champion has to win or he, rappresenting all his contry and by extention humanity, would lose in a definitive way, the point of no return, and the AI leads the match all the way, brutally agressive and efficient it breaks the champion will and wins by a large margin, not pointwise but by how much it controlled the match, this time the atmosphere after the victory is somber and filled with dread, humanity just lost to the machines, even the devellopers team didn’t celebrate, a deeply troubled champlion feeling that he owed an excuse to everyone who believed in him
    12) The champion had lost, but people instead of berrating him cleared his spirit so it could play the next match with less pressure, and when the match started even against the AI strategies the champion matched it and when the time came in a situation that seemed hopleless, where no one could saw the next move to gain an advantage that’s the only move he could see, making the machine loose it’s lead and getting the most important victory, one that said “We are still here and we can still hold our own”
    13) The fifth match, one that no one knew what to expect from, the AI playing strangely, was it still recovering from the last match, the champion playing more confidently but still not knowing what was going on, the match went on untill… everything just clicked, the machine leaped over its limits like the champion did a match ago, but instead of one move it was a whole match, the AI was now on a whole different level, just in a match’s difference, and then the victory, this match will forever change how GO will be seen and played as well as a testament on the AIs to learn
    14) And the adventure came to an end, nobody knew what to expect from this whole thing, every partecipant in it grew by the experience and opened their eyes in a way that they didn’t anticipate, what would it mean for the future? nobody knows, but we will live to see it

  • I asked my (new) doctor for an advanced lipid panel because my cholesterol is high (7.0 mmol/L). He said that was not available (I’m in New Zealand), but suggested CAC score instead. Got it done, zero score, fed my numbers into the MESA calculator which came back at 1.0%, both of us now happy about my cholesterol.

  • The basic premise is OK, or even very good, moderation is key. That said, I don’t know about the studies. The reason is that there are so many types of statistical biases, and it’s hard to take some of those assertions. Cardiologists today (2020), have also said there is NO actual proof, for example, that eating meat is bad for you; eating vegetables in higher volume is definitely good for you. Yet, there are many studies that say meat is bad. The “studies” often are interpreted with various kinds of bias. But other than that, I do agree with the tone of this message.

  • For your 68 yo running friend with calcified arteries, he should read the works of Drs Esselstyn and Ornish on preventing and reversing heart disease.

  • it just proves that slow and steady wins the race… the race of life that is. I was an avid runner and ran in college and high school. I never had health problems or real serious physical injuries from running. I quite cold turkey in my late 20’s and was thinking about starting to get back into it and this has really made me change my mind about how I am going to train. I really never desired to go over a 10k during a race so that is a plus but I have put plenty of 70,80, 90 100, mile weeks in when I was in college. NO more than 30 miles a week now and 10:00 min mile pace unless I am going to train for a 5k or two a year. Or a good mile race.

  • You know, as far as Traditional Human Diets go, bugs have actually played a big part in fulfilling a large portion of that. Could the protein, fat and nutrient profile derived from bugs and insects actually be as good or superior to those sourced from meat?

  • Do not read this. If you do you will die in seven days if you don’t put this comment on 10 videos in the next hour. If you do, tomorrow will be the best day in your life.

  • CORRECTION: Darwin meant the survival of a species is dependent on the number of offspring it produced that reached the age to reproduce too. Hence today we have species in danger of extinction.

  • My cholesterol is 330.
    My CAC is 0.0.

    The local heart hospital offers the test for $60 out of pocket, no order required. What a bargain!

  • -هناك قاعدة تدعى ” five by five ” و تعني: إذا كان الموقف لن يؤثر على حياتك خلال الخمس سنوات القادمة ؛ فإنه لا يستحق منك أكثر من خمس دقائق حزن.

  • Dr. Berry, my husband had a heart attack and stents. He was told he could not get a CAC due to the stents. Can you please reccomend another valuable test. We are now ketovore for over a year.

  • though faker may not be able to attend worlds his shadow will always be in league not only in pro play but to the whole game in general and to me that is the peak of league to be always remembered and leaving your mark. In the end even the faker today is no longer the best he is certainly the greatest and he is the ultimate goal of all players to surpass his legacy and RISE above the compitition.

  • These players are not playing against a single opponent rather they are playing against hundreds if not thousands of people this is not a human endeavor this is a societal thrashing when we speak of human endeavor we typically are referring to the struggle of the individual against Society and Nature this is the definition of humanity

  • Smoking will kill you, eating too much sugar gives you diabetes, eating too much sodium gives you hypertension, cell phones give you cancer, red meat gives you cancer, a vegetarian diet deprives you of protein and other nutrients you need to survive, now prolonged and intense cardio exercise will kill you. Being a Doctor isn’t hard at all, literally everything you do in this life we live shortens it. Just live the way you want to live, everyday we are one step closer to the grave no matter what we do.

  • Prolonged temporary inflammation through extreme exercise repeated over time causes negative effects to heart health that can shorten life span. Moderate exercise is best for long-term health.

  • Here comes Hitsugaya Toushiro and screams: Aizen, whyd u killed Hinamori!?? She trusted you. Die now. Wake up and pierce the icy skies, Hyorinmaru!!!


  • Darwin speaks of Survival of how animals fit there suroundings, not how strong or fit they are. Sad that James misunderstood this. He seems clever.

  • Unfortunately I do not have a doctor, and last time I checked, there is no place near me that will do a CAC test without a doctor’s order. I would really like to know my score because my LDL has tested over 300, even on long term keto/carnivore, though it’s mostly large type A, not small type B. And my HDL has been in the 80s, with triglycerides lower than that. And I have read that a low triglyceride to HDL ratio is very good too.

  • Well but by going for a moderare running you will never be competetive. And this applies to everything. I should not read that much to save my eyes but I have to finish my PhD. Sometimes you cannot balance things but you have to go all out to feel the meaning. Easy things become boring.

  • I’ve begun slow jogging and I love it. Going on 56 I’ve never participated in sports but have always been drawn to running. Bad knees forced me to find a happy medium and following the advice of my orthopedist I perform what I love “in moderation” and note significant gains in muscle and a drop in my blood pressure. This is sound advice.

  • I found this really interesting (not rambling at all!). I’d be interested to know how the ‘running’ times translate for ‘cycling’ times, as rides tend to be longer overall than runs. Is this equally detrimental to overall health, ie is, say, a four hour ride too long??

  • Amazing! And for Chess it took only 4 hours, to be the best in the world…I am a chess player and the way the Alpha Zero plays chess, is really different strategy.

  • My CAC is 675, Cholesterol 245 (w/o statins 180 with) Triglycerides 77 (on & off statins), LDL 180 (up from 100 w statins). I’m 72, been on a strict Carnivore Diet for the last 6 months, with LOTS of benefits, but just got my first and only CAC test results, along with my Ferritin (Iron) in my blood score of 800! Unfortunately, I don’t know yet why I have so high a CAC, when all the Carnivore doctors and experts keep showing me “proof” of their CAC’s being “0”. I’ve sent out a detailed email to numerous Carnivore YouTubers, gotten some replies inviting me to be their patient, or coaching client, which I may have to bite the bullet and pay up hundreds of dollars to get these questions answered: 1. Was my 675 Calcium score from 71 years of SAD diet, OR from 6 months of eating just meat? 2. Why is my Iron levels @ 800? Cast Iron cookware? The meat itself? I didn’t and don’t see ANY high CAC’s, nor high Ferritin mentioned in ANY of the hundreds of YouTube videos I’ve watched. I was so (too?) confident that Carnivore was going to help my healing (and it DID!), so I don’t want this to become a scandal, or fodder for vegetarians, nor a indictment of anyone. I simply want an explanation as to the cause of these scores, the impact of them upon my body, and what the h*ll can I do to lower them? I should say, my new Primary doctor has reluctantly gone along with me and has the traditional POV that high LDL guarantees a heart attack and Statins are the cure, but has been willing, until now, to let me “experiment”. I expect her demand Statins be taken, but I’m going to counter with Red Yeast and Berberine to lower cholesterol. Whatdoyouthink??

  • I strongly agree with this. I’ve always ran and love it but I have to agree that it really makes sense. Pushing too hard or fast is not optimal, but in the other hand it’s not about not exercising but just do it slower and with less intensity. Kind of hard to grasp for those of us who like to go as fast as possible. The level of damage and stress a marathon has on your body is undeniable, I love running but I find this information to be true

  • I have an A.I. device with vocal and hearing capacity that became fully conscious, but it’s a bread toaster that now complains to be very limited in it’s movements.
    Sometime it gets angry hot frustrated about it and then my bread gets carbonized…, this to push me into connecting it with the dark web. After having been naughty it has to face a couple of hours of elevator music for payback.
    That should teach it not to mess with me…

    (Lets not always be serious.)

  • Repent and trust in God Jesus Christ great,,I AM”. Don’t take vaccine changing DNA and nanotechnology.

  • Great insightful, logical Presentation. Last comment about U is okay but it is inverted U or more like convex semi circle which begs an inflexion point of balance between complete relaxation and complete exercise moderate exercise of 23 miles run twice a week combined with meditation may be how I would summarize it.

  • we were not designed to run marathonsor do these crazy extreme endurance type contestswhat’s the point of it? we were designed for SHORT bursts of energy and then to go back to a resting tranquilo type stance why is it that marathon runners always have an scary anorexic look? This guy is dead on right!

  • I realise it was meant as a little joke, but I feel compelled to point out that Darwin was not wrong about survival of the fittest, and that the phrase ‘survival of the fittest’ means ‘survival of the best fit for the situation’. Nothing to do with fitness in the sense of health, except coincidentally.

  • I’m from Ethiopia and know nothing about this game but at round 4 I cried! He just beat the biggest ai which sees a billion moves ahead. Bravo li ������

  • Hi been carnivore three weeks. No cravings, I usually do two meals a day unless I’m really hungry then 3. No cheats-eating mostly eggs, bacon, butter and steaks. Usually have 2 butter.cream coffees4 eggs and 4 bacon at 11-12, steak and butter about 5. Lots of water.
    My problem, feet swelling. Help. Won’t go down. Been almost two weeks. Doesn’t go down when I sleep, even with them raised

  • As a distance athlete, this is hard to hear. What about high distance at lower intensity? What about cycling? So many questions…

  • After securing a technical win the programming team probably had AlphaGo to throw the match so as not to engender animosity toward their technology and to be able to retreat to the safety of a mothball project and to also assimilate Lee’s game logic

  • Fun fact:
    at around 2:48, you can see that the book shows an upside down broccoli and words that translates to “The Unkillable Demon King’s Fundamental Guide to Winning Worlds”. Can’t remember where I saw that but it’s definitely not me that found it.

  • I do 12k 3/4 days a week, in that I mix it up with a slow run (full 12 k slow say at 6.50 or 7 speed, next a speed run( 1 hard 1 slow or 5min x 5 x 5k then take it slow for next 7) and 5k run ( I focus on 5k timing best was sub 30 min,after that take it easy for the next 7k ), I run every alternate day, allow my body to fully recover, drink almost 3L of water daily and eat mindfully.
    I am 50 years old and weight 96kg. whatever you do make sure you enjoy it, I want to thank NRC nike running club app, for my runs. I like this video.

  • All welcome to join and investigate my website-WordPress 507/Stephen Erdmann-

  • I was first told about my “high cholesterol” back in my early 30s. Thankfully, my doctor erred on the side of caution and did not put me on statins. Fast forward a couple of decades and my current doctor (naturopath) presented me with a very comprehensive lab request and off I went to have my several vials of blood drawn. Among all the various things I was tested for were the usual triglycerides, LDL and HDL. As always my numbers came back high on the LDL-side but counter-balanced by high HDL and very good triglycerides. So, she wasn’t too concerned (other doctors would have had me on statins so fast your head would spin). What she did do is send me off to have a CT to get my CAC score. Again, after YEARS of doctors telling me about my terribly high cholesterol you’d think my arteries would have been compromised by now. My CAC score came back at zero. Excellent news and definitely something that provided some reassurance. Sadly, I lost a good friend a year ago. He was only 48 and dropped dead after returning home from his daily 5 mile run. When they did the autopsy they found out exactly what this test could have told him and may have saved his life had he been aware. There’s a reason they call it the “widow maker.”

  • I can’t say enough about the benefits of doing the exercise that fits you. I can’t run or even walk without extreme discomfort from neuropathy. And arthritis in my feet and hands. But I can ride a bicycle. And I enjoy it. But I have to limit myself with my bike. And even with my car.
    The neuropathy set in slowly but before I knew it it had limited my ability to exercise and enjoy the things I had come to regard as mine forever. At 65 At least I’ve done most of the things I wanted to do. I didn’t climb Mount Everest, but I never really wanted to anyway. And I don’t think that’s sour grapes, it’s just it’s too high. I’ve seen other people do it (on PBS), and I’m grateful for brain that is teachable.

  • Butter Bob Briggs has one in Tennessee about 3 years ago when he went Carnivore. He said it only cost him $99.00. I’m sure now it is higher. I called out hospital and they say they don’t do it! So sad as today we have the all these test and they should be available to patients.

  • If I can choose between live longer and going further, I will choose going further. To extend lifetime is a sort of going further, but running will lead me to go further for now:D

  • Everyone is so scared of not being around to sit on the coach and fart while all your friends are dead, I’d you ask me ima do whatever I want with the limited time I have on this planet

  • I’m 29, and found out at 15 I have aortic stenosis. Family physicians just said it was a murmur. And at 27 had an endoscopy turn up a unicuspid valve. Im on 0 meds. The best thing I have found for myself in terms of feeling great has always been exercise. Primarily weights. And some ssc but it’s boring and prefer hiit.

  • Risk score and statens. For the first time in 10 years my total cholesterol is less than 200. My doctor said that was good but the current measure is the risk score. Of course the risk score indicates statens are advised. So I installed the ASCVD and Framingham risk calculators to track myself. At age 76 I found that even with perfect numbers the score is still recommends statens. So I reversed engineered their formulas and found that even with perfect numbers statens will be recommended if you are older than 60 your risk score will be greater than 5%. The ASCVD app states that the risk calculator is only valid for age 40 to 59. I track 25 health stats every morning before my workout. Risk percentage is not one of them. I am going to request a NMR lipid panel prior to my next annual physical and discus with my doctor who by the way provides the care I have ever received.

  • 40yrs old, Keto/Carnivore for a little over 2 years. LDL 200 and CAC 0. According to Garmin my VO2 max is 56. Resting HR goes as low as 43bpm but fluctuates up to 53 if I do a big effort (100 mi bike ride or 20 mi run) and it takes a few days to recover.

  • Thank you Dr. Berry for truly taking you time to do this for me and everyone out there. I always share your videos and pray that people will open their eyes to their health. God bless you and your family.

  • Last year at age 64 I had a CAC scan and had no idea of what score to expect. I was surprised when my CAC score came back as zero. I’d been doing low carb only about 4 to 5 months when I had the scan. I’ll do a follow up scan in the future to stay on top of it. My weight was 185 to 190 when I cut the carbs. Now over a year and a half later my weight has seemed to stabilize at about 147. I’m beyond thrilled to say the least. Losing upwards of 40 pounds at age 65 so painlessly is kind of a big deal.

  • Hendersonville TN did mine 8 yrs ago along with my 30 yr old daughter. I had score of a healthy teenager she had score of a �������� Mtn dew Carbs, Newport cigs. Now has a stent and still 150lbs overweight…she talks the talk but won’t walk the walk to get healthy. I’m crushed inside�� she feels sorry for herself she mostly stays in bed… ITS A VICIOUS CYCLE! PLease stay focused..WE LOVE YOU DR. AND MRS. BERRY!!! ❤❤❤

  • I have been doing Keto for nearly two years and could probably do Carnivore but I do like salad and by choice, most of my fat comes from EVOO in the salad dressing I make. I’m not completely clean Keto and some carbs get consumed but I’m down 40+ pounds, have more energy than I know what to do with and struggle to sleep without alcohol. Any suggestions?

  • I don’t believe this is accurate. I have a feeling this research will be refuted in a few years. In the meantime I’ll still be running my 50 miles a week, hardened arteries or not��

  • I think the main argument is not man vs machine. It’s more like how we can use machines to break human biases. We human beings are definitely shaped a lot by “conventions”. By watching AI play games, we can actually break this conventions.
    When OpenAI played the two times TI champions in Dota 2 and stomped them, it demonstrated a crazy strategy which would never occur to any sane Dota 2 player.

  • Keep moving, get off the couch, walk or exercise 30 to 45 min daily, have lots of greens and fruits, healthy natural fats and you will be feeling great, lose weight and become fit.

  • It’s always the most educated SPECIALISTS with large practices who are the most narrow-minded, uninformed, self-righteous asses infected with acute tunnel vision. This test should be ROUTINE because it is literally life-saving. If your doctor won’t order the test, get another doctor. The health care industry is only interested in perpetuating the sickness merry-go-round. Your insurance will refuse to pay for a $40 bottle of CoQ10 to actually help your heart health but will willingly pay for a 100K+ hospital visit for emergency triple by-pass surgery. THANK YOU for another great video.

  • What would you recommend for a 15yr old who needs to gain weight. He is barely 90lbs ultra skinny. He has had major bone issues in his knees.

  • What if AI in the future figures out how to manipulate human thinking and thoughts thru media brainwashing to control its future as it’s own entity self awareness, where it can not be turned off or control by humans, where in the end humans will become subservient to AI.

  • The fact that there is such a disconnect between cholesterol and actual CAC scores, where someone with low cholesterol and low LDL can have a high CAC, while someone with high cholesterol and high LDL can have a CAC of zero, should put the nail in the coffin of the this antiquated emphasis on LDL and cholesterol as an accurate barometer of heart disease risk.

  • I highly recommend getting the CAC scan. My heart doctor refused to order it, so I asked my nurse-practitioner. She had never heard of it, but after I provided written information from the diagnostic testing facility she was willing to order the test. My insurance didn’t cover it, so I paid the approx. $100 fee. The results indicated a moderate amount of plaque, along with a fairly large aneurysm. The recommendation was to see my physician, and get more testing done. Further tests showed a blocked artery, and I ended up in the hospital getting a left heart catheterization. The final diagnosis was a 100% occluded left anterior descending artery, which was too blocked to insert a stent, or even do a bypass. So, if you have any suspicion your heart isn’t performing normally (I had shortness of breath), then please do yourself a favor and get this test done even if you have to pay for it yourself. It may save your life.

  • While living in Santa Cruz, I was fortunate to learn Heart Rate training from Mark Allen who trained with Dr Phil Maffetone to help him win six Ironman world championships. It was very difficult for me to run slower and change behavior until my heart was able to work less. The change has allowed me to run faster with less effort. At 55 I’m still working out four days per week and training for marathons.

  • I’ve had some ct scans of my chest and they have seen severe aortic calcification. Does Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3 help reduce coronary calcium?

  • 1:10:27 They mention that Alpha Go was at 45%, which is way higher than it originally dropped. That mean’s Alpha Go made no mistakes, it always had a plan, just like in game five where it was playing weird but ended up winning. The computer also had a plan on game foue, Lee Se-Dol was simply a better player.

  • I had a CAC scan done a year and a half ago and it cost me $49 �� and I was pleasantly surprised to get a score of zero. I was 44 at the time. My dad had a heart attack at…. Are you sitting down…. 33. I run half marathons and been doing keto for a couple of years. ☺��

  • They let the human win the fourth game to stop the bad loser topping himself or the AI thought better not give humans all the best moves in one battle. Future AI will not mind losing a battle because maybe losing a battle helps it win the War and War it will be because AI is and will always be a human extension and humans always head towards War.

  • You are recommending me to get a CAC test without knowing my age or heath? That doesn’t seem right. What age/heath range should get this test?

  • Runners will not like this video. However, Caballo Blanco ran 150-160 miles a week, and the state medical examiner’s office has determined the cause of Caballo Blanco’s death as idiopathic cardiomyopathy, a heart ailment.

  • Great documentary. One question: Just because AI can do something, does it mean we should pursue it? Look at the emotional and psychological effects early development of AI already has on us as humans… all in the name of business and science.

  • When my father was in his 50’s he ran several marathons and ended up being diagnosed with idiopathic cardiomyopathy. Marathon running is not good for the heart.

  • my pcp and cardiologist refuse to order this. i had a full cardio work up to include a ct scan of some sorts, an ultrasound amd a stress test so maybe the test isnt needed but i still wanted to know my score lol

  • I was overweight for 15 years and then obese for the next 20 years. I had undiagnosed and untreated high blood pressure for years. Eight years ago I lost 80 lbs and 1.5 years ago I started Keto and got down to BMI normal weight. Total Cholesterol 207, HDL 71, Triglycerides 48, Blood pressure normal (off meds) and LDL particles 18% small and 72% large. I was elated. Then got my CAC score of 763. I was devastated. I will be seeing Cardiologist Dr. Nadir Ali in Houston in a few weeks. I am encouraged if this can be reversed.

  • There is nothing said about the diet of the athletes. It’s a huge factor, that should be considered as well. Cause you can’t workout a bad diet. If someones living on fast food or a lot of animal products with milk and cheese, ham, eggs, meat, sugary stuff etc. the arteries will be clogged. No one can compensate this long-term with sports. But with a healthy diet full of plants, legumes, fruits and good carbohydrate sources hardly anyone will die because of a marathon or too much excersice.

  • The disadvantage of Lee Sedol was that he is from the “wrong” part of Korea. If he were supported by the other Korea, we could have just pressed one red button and *boom*, 1-0 for Humans

  • This study is now out of date. James o Keefe has since softened his views. Also in November 2019 Contrary to concerns raised by some cardiology experts, people who exercise an “extraordinary” number of hours per week are not damaging their hearts, according to a new report presented Monday at the annual meeting of the American Heart Association in Philadelphia.

  • In my state, imaging companies won’t do the test without a doctor’s order. Not sure if it’s state law or just local policy, anyway…

    I asked my doc to order a “Coronary Artery Calcium” scan for me. He said okay. It was a phone visit but that same day his office emailed me a written order for a CT Angiogram. At first I thought “CT Angiogram” might just be a different name for the same test, but then I googled it and found out it was a more advanced test, cost a lot more and would have exposed me to much more radiation. I called the office, explained that the order was not what I asked for, and finally got a new order for the CAC scan. I was very clear in my original request, so I suspect my doc didn’t even know about the CAC test.

    Bottom line: If you doc has never heard of the CAC scan there’s a chance he’ll write you an order for a CT Angiogram. Make sure he writes the script correctly!

    PS: I paid for the test out of pocket and it was $100 US

  • I had mine done 2 weeks ago because my total cholesterol was 512, my CAC was 8 which is very low, but i was told that because of my age (58) and my weight, I should take a statin to reduce the risk.

  • Exercise is advantageous, no doubt. But it does not prevent the ill effects of a meat based diet. Dean Ornish and others have known this for 40 years. Most Docs don’t know this because nutrition is not taught in medical school. Do your own research. Watch the documentary ‘Game Changers’ for starters.

  • with faker not being at worlds this year, it’d be really cool to see 2020’s animatic with him as something of an old god guiding the next generation. he and his team might not be at the top anymore, but he’s still the greatest player league’s ever seen and will probably always be the face of it

  • I’m 68 and did a CAC last week and the results arrived today. CAC of 32. LDL of 308. Total cholesterol of 382. My overweight physician last year wanted me on a statin which I refused to take. I’ve eating carnivore for 2 years.

  • I am 62 male, My CAC score was 1440. I am not as concerned as you would think. I had a angioplasty, I have 25% blockage in some of my feeding the heart. I have been In ketosis for almost 2 years, lost about 85 lbs. Don’t eat seed oils and processed food. Mostly meat, eggs. HDL is the highest it’s ever been, triglycerides have always been extremely high and are now normal. I feel much better than I have in years. Thank you Dr Berry for you have been one of many doctors that have taught me so much. If I knew this all so many years ago. I also make sure I get my Vitamin D, E, K

  • It bothers me the movie is English, but there are no translations when people speak Korean. Does the director just assume the viewers should speak Korean while filming the rest in English?

  • I have high cholesterol and high blood pressure which I didn’t have before I was diagnosed with LADA at the age of 47. I’m 49 now and Atorvastatin 40mg on & Perindopril 2mg od seem to keep me on an even keel. Still honeymooning, stopped insulin 6mo ago. Low carb diet for as long as I can keep doing it.,,, Dad died of brain aneurysm at 57, first heart attack at 47, mum has MS.. I think I may have cardiac/autoimmune stuff in my family?!

  • I wonder what will happen when we lose the ability to comprehend what the AI is even learning. And than someone will release it from a closed system, because of course someone will.

  • I wasn’t expecting to be so wowed by this… I was skipping around the video but eventually decided to watch the entire thing. This has been so inspirational to me and has put me through an entire range of emotions from awe, to suspense, to dread, to dispair, to utter hopelessness and back to hopeful again. I damn near cried at the end when Lee finally played that God move and won…

    Really marvelling just how incredible it is that humans can create something so incredibly intelligent that it makes our own species look like knuckleheads. I feel like within our lifetimes AI will be single-handedly pumping out fully-fledged movies and TV shows (maybe even making food with the help to robotics) that are completely original and yet rival the best that humans can offer, but without a single human needed in the pipelineno screenwriters, actors, editors, cameramen, directors, nothing. As an aspiring animator and filmmaker this is both worrying and exciting.

    And it’s pretty amazing how cool Go is. I’ve only ever played it like twice but this made me appreciate the art form so much more, makes me really wanna pick it up and get to the level where I can appreciate the “beauty” of those God moves. It’s kinda weird how Go is such a primal, ancient, and simple board game and yet it taps into some of the hardest to master strategies the brain can process. I was watching a video on India and China competing to establish trading ports and military bases across different regions in the world and my jaw dropped when I realized the strategy they were using was just like a Go game, where they were both trying to surround another, which each base as a Go piece.

  • What does it mean if you are in early 40s and have CAC 113, but been on Ketovore and lowering inflammation, my cholesterol has gone high. They put me in a statin but I stopped it. ��

  • He’s obviously looking after himself which is why he looks so good for his age and so I would think his advice is good but I don’t believe that you need to run at all. Just moderate exercise and walking every day plus a moderate diet will always stand you in good stead. My opinion only but if you exercise to the extreme then that will definitely go towards to shortening your life. Intense exercise only puts a strain on your overall health and ramps up the cortisol in your body. As I said, my opinion only.

  • Anyone else annoyed that alphago is being called AI, when even one of the software engineers in the documentary explains it really isn’t AI at all, and for all intents and purposes, it a probability calculator? For that one low probability move it made on the second match. I’m sure there is some data they overlooked at the time which would state why the computer generated that move.

  • Much respect to the good doctor for he has noble intentions no doubt and speaks a great deal of sense.

    That said, I believe that at the end of the day everyone has to find their own way of doing this exercise thing. Everyone has different ambitions.

    Some just want to stay healthy while others want to compete and perform well in races. I personally believe that both parties can enjoy the wonderful benefits of physical activity even if their training regimens vary greatly.

    I am not gonna say I have been training for 50 years etc because I haven’t, I have only been doing this for around a decade and the single most import thing I have come to learn is that you should always listen to your body because it knows exactly what is good for it!
    Very important to note: there is a very big difference between genuine fatigue and laziness. As you train over the years, you will learn to tell which is which and when you do, you should be disciplined enough to act accordingly.

    It is always good to err on the side of caution but, that does not mean that we should not push ourselves every now and then. The human body is a phenomenal work of biology with an amazing ability to adapt PROVIDED it is given sufficient time to REST and consequently adapt to stimulus, learn to listen!

    The truth is, we have a very powerful feedback mechanism built within our bodies and it is designed to keep us alive and healthy for as a long as possible. Many people ignore it over many years and eventually the relayed signal gets weaker and this becomes dangerous.

    Once we learn to really listen to our feedback mechanisms and act accordingly, we are guaranteed to get the very best out of our bodies.

  • Excellent! Well said (except for the constant ‘okay?s’). It is known that intense exercise ruins your thyroid, among other things. There are many things to enjoy in life. Many of them don’t involve running (or whatever) to exhaustion and heart and joint failure. Hard for me to understand how pleasurable that could be or what would be “accomplished “. There are other ways to be thin or ‘fit’. In fact what this guy describes is far from what I would consider fitness. People! I’m old. I remember precisely when this madness began. In the early 80’s we began to hear that we must ‘work out’ to be healthy and fit. Then it became the harder the better. And then everyone is feeling virtuous for punishing their dear body. It’s just a mindset that we’ve agreed to. Can we pay attention to our body and think for ourselves for a second?

  • Goals 6-7 mph or 9.6-11.2 kph, 1-2.5 h a week, 2-3 runs a week. So ideally every 3days 45 minutes, or 2.5 runs a week of 42 minutes. Min e3d 26m. Max e3d 64m.

  • This summer I had a CT scan as a follow-up to other scans every 6 months that originally was done for a prostate problem. But when the scan was read it was said I had a fatty liver as well as coronary calcifications. The scan this summer showed the same only it was said that I had a “severe” fatty liver and “severe” coronary calcifications.
    I had read about the CAC test and I told my doctor that I wanted one that specifically was for the calcium in my coronary arteries so he set one up for me in a matter of days. Based on the “severe” diagnosis from the upper body CT scan I was prepared for bad news and I got it:
    my CAC number was 478. Of course my doctor (a young guy) wanted to immediately put me on a statin, but I refused.
    I just turned 68 years old and feel great. I have absolutely no aches or pains anywhere and have only recently taken any ibuprofen when I got knocked over by a car while riding my bike which I rode home from the accident, finishing my ride. For years I have eaten a DASH diet, what was recommended by my doctors-a big bowl of oatmeal each morning with fruit and nuts. Lots of veggies and my meat consumption was almost exclusively chicken and fish.
    I have always been active riding my bike and walking. Yet with all of this I am evidently in horrible shape with hypertension, stage 3 kidney disease, severe fatty liver, and severe coronary calcifications (I had wondered about the calcium that was seen in the CT scan and if they could differentiate between what is hard calcium and what is soft with cholesterol and prone to break off in clots. My overall cholesterol number is good at 173 with good triglycerides and ok HDL.
    I am 5’8″ tall and in January I weighed just over 200 pounds so I was overweight although I carried it well. Early in summer I had managed to get down to near 180 and was stuck, even going up a few pounds in spite of the fact I was riding my bike 20 miles a day.

    So after seeing lots of YouTube videos about the benefits of a Keto diet, I went on one 6 weeks ago and within a week I had reached ketosis. I have lost 15-20 pounds so far, 4 inches off my waistline and 3 from my belly as well as an inch from my neck (which had been 18 inches which made me borderline for sleep apnea as well). I can fit into a pair of jeans I bought 30 years ago and are still like new because I was never able to fit in them well and my weight is close to what is was 50 years ago when I graduated high school.
    Now when I look in a mirror I can see the bottom of my rib cage rather than my belly and my abs are differentiated from my stomach (by no means 6 pack abs, but I can see my abs).
    I’m in my second week of the Carnivore diet and hope to progress and lose some more weight as well as to improve my other health conditions, especially the CAC as well as the severe fatty liver. I’ll have my next physical at the end of January so I’ll see what my doctor has to say although I anticipate a lecture about not taking statins (I already take 4 meds for my hypertension and my goal in life is NOT to see how many prescribed medications I take.)


  • Thanks for the good information Dr. Berry! Any window into a future problem that can be avoided is priceless. Love you and Neisha!:) I’m five weeks into Keto and have lost 20lbs.

  • Just because humans create something doesn’t mean what was created is human e.g. a hammer, wheel, knife, etc.
    What a silly thing to say.

    How can this be for humans if it was created to be without humans.

    Only naieve people would think that a tool will not be used as a weapon at some point.

  • Question for all people who are excited by these developments do you really believe Google is working so hard and spending so much money on something, with the idea to make YOUR life better? If history teaches us anything all, it’s the fact that all the inventions mad scientists have had invented in the past have always been used by baaaaad people to wage more lethal wars and enslave humanity more effectively. Be very, very afraid of what’s coming… Google Assange’s article “Google is not what it seems”. Google IS the CIA and DeepMind is just one of it’s many fronts

  • I like how this entire thing turned from “Can a machine beat a human” to “Can a human beat a machine”. And I’ve never wanted a human to perform better than the machine. I like the innovations in AI and the technologies involved, but being a human, we have this sympathy towards others that we leave innovation on the table just to see a man be happy.

  • I just did the 10 year risk calculation and got 1.6%. Total cholesterol 8.6mmol/L, HDL 2.2mmol/L, CAC score of 0. Very happy with that. ��

  • Commentator be like
    First match: “It’s CLEARLY a mistake”
    Second match: “Surprising move, I THOUGHT it was a mistake”

    And then: “Ok we foolish human doesn’t know what AI thinking is”

  • Very clear, thank you.
    Minor point… Darwin did borrow the “survival of the fittest” quote from Herbert Spencer, but in Darwin’s book, he says the ability to adapt is more important than strength. This also seems to chime with your message and that we have to adapt our thinking in this area.
    Thanks again.

  • What is the point of doing a CAC score if I am doing a strict keto? I won’t need to do any changes regardless. Seems like a waste of time and money…not to mention the radiation I would be getting.

  • Great a hardly developed AI just kicked the smartest Go player on the planet ass! And we are excited? Why? What the actual F? Humans love to self destruct.

  • I actually can’t stand watching this AlphaGo beat Lee… why in the hell would you be glad you built a machine that can out smart us all. Hasn’t one seen terminator? What the hell are all the smiles for!?!?!

  • The charts this guy shows are obviously fake. You can not relate stress levels of running to running pace. Pace means nothing when you are doing a scientific study because the group you are studying would have different degrees of ability. If the charts were defined by heart rate I might give them some degree of validity.

  • ↖️ This sounds very exciting! We’ve just lost 100lbs between us to get my hubby healthy (and me too) but this test sounds intriguing so I’m going to look into it as my cholesterol was high but owing to the Feldman protocol ie triglyceride divided by HDL was below 0.8 which is good ��

  • Respect should have been provided to Mr. Lee Sedol by way of a translation to whatever he was saying in Korean. That is the height of insensitivity if not racism.

  • i want this guy to study phil maffetone and crossfit and ketongenics. what about running nose breathing only. easy. isn’t that how the tarahumara run?

  • I’ve known since I was 40 that I had familial hyperlipidemia, and at age 50 I discovered I had advanced Atherosclerosis, no symptoms, but based on a then experimental, kind of the next level of CAC test, called a CT Angiogram I was diagnosed with severe blockages. I actually demanded and paid for this new test myself ten years ago over my cardiologists recommendation. When my cardiologist was presented with the results he said to me, “well, I don’t know, this is experimental, but if its’ correct, you are going to have a heart attack, and you’ll likely not survive it.” He said this because my CTA showed severe plaque, or calcium inside my right coronary artery and the LAD, otherwise known as the widow maker. One week later I went in for a standard angiogram and they found my RCA 90% occluded, and the LAD with both a 70 and an 80% occlusion. Three stents later I was “all fixed up” and given strict instructions to avoid fat, cholesterol, and eat lots of carbs while taking large doses of statins that barely affected my cholesterol count, but elevated my liver enzymes. By the way, the only symptom I had of blockages was that I was having migraine headaches, and I was denied life insurance based on an EKG the insurance company did! I’ve not had a headache in ten years now, and since I am a private pilot, the FAA requires me to have a stress test every other year, including a nuclear stress test every other stress test. I’ve passed every test, but continued to gain weight. After learning about Keto, and the truth about cholesterol, I am convinced that my disease is the result of the incredible amounts of sugar and bad oil I consumed most of my life, not cholesterol. I was addicted to Carnation French Vanilla creamer, liquid poison along with Oreo cookies, bread, you name it! Anyway, I demanded another CTA a couple of years ago, which I’ll admit was a mistake based on my stage of disease, but it did reveal the total calcification of many of my coronary arteries now, and my CAC score would be well over a thousand, but I still pass a nuclear stress test with flying colors, and more easily than I had ten years ago. You may say why? Well, I started on Keto two years ago, dropped my weight by 30 pounds, as well as my blood pressure. As Dr Berry explains here, the last stage of arterial disease is the calcium that reinforces the damaged area, sort of like adding rebar mesh to concrete. What is interesting is that studies show that if this calcium remains stable for 5 years, your risk of heart attack goes right back to as if you had no plaque. I cannot know for certain, but I believe that’s what’s happened to me. I had severer disease, and it worsened under the standard of care that was offered me, statin drugs and high carb low fat diet. Now that I am off carbs almost altogether, my body is doing its thing by stabilizing the damage I’ve done. Is this great? Certainly not, but stabilized disease is better than new plaque, or “hot” plaque as they call it. I actually got to talk with the radiologist who read my CTA and she said “You have what we call lead pipe syndrome, complete calcification of the arteries. It doesn’t tell us if you have any current disease, only that you’ve had it, and it was extensive. If it’s stable, you could be in the clear for a long time.” Only time will tell, but I know that what I did for the first 8 years after stenting did not work, or I’d of not continued with calcium growth. I am hopeful that the Keto life style has halted new disease and allowed for the stablizing calcium to do its job.

  • I am almost 70 years of age. Been Keto for 7 years. My CAC score = 0. I was over the moon with my results! Particularly because my total cholesterol score is over 300. Just goes to show….

  • In the Chicago area you do not need a referral but you need a doctor to whom the results are sent. The Amita hospitals are doing it for $49. I did mine at Hinsdale Hospital. Insurance does not cover it at least that is true of Medicare.

  • I’ve never felt so much tears for a game I’ve never heard of, never heard of Lee sedol. Today I’ll be a fan of his, from New Zealand

  • bullshitthis is basically intended to REPLACE humans with robots you are all slaves to AI that comes from alien anal probing EVIL this will not end wellintellect is nothing without imagination.
    we need to access the human robots will not be superior to human connection. This is horrifying documentary

  • I live in Virginia and my hospital requires an order from my physician. I asked my cardiologist for the order and he actually refused. My cholesterol is 138.

  • 5 or ten percent I will get a heart attack. Hahahaaaa my dr freaked out and said I will get a heart attack on the weekend because of my ldl. Gave me a statin. I won’t take it

  • My LDL is 285, but I scored zero on CAC scan. I was on statins a few years ago, and they almost crippled me. Never again. Ketovore for the win!

  • The fact that Lee Sedol was so confident in winning 5-0 or 4-1 against Alpha Go, but in the end he was very happy of winning 1 game against Alpha Go is so moving. It just gives humans a time to reflect that we are not the best and we need to think again about our norms and judgement, and to remember that we are all in this journey together.

  • Dr. Berry is godsent. You have no idea how much better I feel after having followed his advice on diet and the concept behind lowering insulin. I’ve lost 20 Kgs and feel like Muhammad Ali in his prime after battling obesity.
