  • I like you voice and accent, just no distracting music. Thank you for the information I read along but would like to listen to you

  • 85% of eggs are factory-farmed. This is a horribly cruel business for baby boy chicks. Since they are really not needed, they are separated when they are a few days old sent down the Chute to be ground up Alive by spinning metal blades. Poor little things only a few days old this is not how we should be treating babies. Always better to choose a less cruel form of nutrition.

  • Nice video accepted as never never healthy to eat dead rodded dismembered animal flesh. We are plant-based theaters we do not have fangs or claws, we do not have short intestine, our Jaws move from left and right like every plant-based animal. Much better to get iron from plant-based foods and supplements.

  • Just a note…it is not accurate to say that plant sources lack sufficient iron. Ex: 251g of steak has about 6mg of iron while a cup of red kidney beans has 16mg of iron. If we do proper research we will see we can get plenty of iron from plants and avoid the negative affects of eating diseased animals which in turn make us sick in time. Ie..diabetes, heart disesease, cancer, etc

  • Hello once again Dr Joe.
    What is your advice on taking smoothies of vegetables and fruit. ( I find it difficult to eat celery, carrots and asparagus) is it alright to blend a portion in my smoothies?

  • Don’t Forget to Like and Subscribe to the Channel at for more remedies and natural health tips.✔️

  • Dr. Joe, I love your videos, but could you please avoid having music play constantly in the background when you’re talking? It makes it hard for anybody with limited hearing (who must constitute a not-insignificant portion of your audience) to hear the spoken text, and it’s generally distracting and annoying. We just want to hear your lovely voice!

  • Thanks a lot for your nice suggestions.i am living Bangladesh.could you let me know what sorts of vegetables are rich in iron n easily accessible to body?

  • Thanks Dr Joe basically you telling me to eat midtranian food,, Humas,, lental,, liver,, all what mentioned in Mediterranean foods ��❤️����

  • V,very nice and useful video.thanks �� �������������� I’m pure grandma also watches your videos. She enjoys your videos and sends u lots of blessings������������������������������

  • It is a complete mistake to recommend animal foods. Plant based food, is healthier in all fields, is a step forward for a health assured.

  • Liver actually leads to too much heme iron in the blood and is actually bad to eat too much. People should look at plant based sources of iron. There is many. From chickpeas, to bread, to oats, to navy or haricot beans, raisins, lots of beans and legumes, if eaten with vitamin c this increases absorption of iron, so eat Bell Peppers, Pineapple, and Cooked Broccoli. Point being you should get your iron from plant based sources and vitamin c will help with absorption, so you don’t need to worry about oxalate.

  • Quick question. I’ve seen purple sweet potatoes at the grocery store and was just wondering if they are high in beta-carotene like traditional sweet potatoes? Thanks for your time & this vid!: )
