dr. kneel bernard is here in that washington, d.c. t we wanted to sit down with him and ask him about the controversy and if, in fact the statements in this documentary are true. >> cigarettes cause lung cancer and they increase your risk of heart disease. now, eggs do something different. they don't cause lung cancer but they have more cholesterol than any other food and a big load of saturated fat and although some people have tried to make that go away and say no, that doesn't really raise your cholesterol the truth is it does. >> number one on the list the documentary claims that many one egg is as bad for you as smoking five cigarettes. we want to know if that's true. >> cigarettes cause cancer in the lungs and because the carcinogens are excreted in the urine they also cause bladder cancer. with processed meat it's something different. the processed meats go into your intestinal tract and that's where they cause the cancer and the increase is substantial. this is not a trivial risk. if you have about a is your
processed meat each day your risk of colorectal risk goes up. what if i bacon for breakfast pepperoni or hot dog that's two servings right there. 36 percent increase. this kills 50,000 americans every single year. >> drinking milk causes cancer. >> milk was that designed by nature to help a baby grow rapidly. but you're already grown. so now milk can cause cancer cells in your body to grow rapidly, too and to spread and that's something that nature never had in mind. >> in the film it talks a lot about the dairy industry, the meat industry spend a lot of money marketing to us and almost confusing us. >> sure do. >> and so i mean, your years of seeing that, how hard is it to change your patients' perspectives. >> the food industry -- these are smart people who have a lot of money to spend and increasingly they are spending it on research studies to try
are safe and if you do research studies in certain ways, for example, an egg will raise cholesterol compared to not eating an egg but maybe it won't raise your cholesterol too much compared to eating sausage so i can make the egg look safe compared to something that really wasn't safe anyway. >> even eating some of these things in moderation i'm assuming over time all of it adds up, right? >> a lot of people have the idea of everything in moderation. >> yeah. >> everything in moderation. that's advice for healthy things. >> okay. >> so, let's say your seven-year-old daughter likes playing the violin. after about six hours you got to say, you know, you also need to eat dinner. you also need to study. you know, keep it in moderation or your child likes nothing but broccoli, that's all i want all day. wait a minute. have it in moderation. but moderation doesn't apply to heroin. or to cocaine or to foods that are unhealthy or for cigarettes. if your seven-year-old daughter says wait, i can light up. everything in moderation. no, the answer is
moderation in healthy things, not for things that are going to kill you. >> i also asked dr. bernard about processed meats. the documentary claims that eating processed meat every day is what's leading to cancer. is that true? >> it's absolutely true the dairy industry does studies to try to show that dairy is safe for you or has some kind of benefit and the meat industry is doing the same thing for meat, the egg industry is very active in this. however, there were lots of people including my research team that are doing studies showing that when you get away from the animal products and you follow a healthy diet vegetables and fruits and beans and whole grains that things change with better than any other diet and we are winning that battle. if you look at the federal dietary guidelines they're getting better and better and better. in 2016 they said vegetarian diets should be recommended. i'm talking about the u.s. dietary guidelines for americans aren't the scientific societies are now saying it's true. bacon sausage hot dogs they do cause cancer. we are winning that battle but it's
forward and then industry takes it two steps back and fights with us every step of the way. and they know that if people have a little bit of good news about a bad habit, they start saying, well, maybe i can bring these bad foods back. >> wow. that's rivetting. >> my god, i'm -- >> and this obviously this film impacted you in your personal daily life. so you have gone what plant based diet four out of the seven. >> i wanted to start four out of the seven which i was talking to dr. bernard about and he doesn't recommend really because, you know, you sort of never really feel the full effects of what true plant based can do if you're kind of dabbling. so he was basically saying give yourself three weeks to a month and really go all in and try it and see how you feel. you know, before you make a decision. so, that's sort of my next step but i think it's interesting, i love that -- it's just knowledge. this film is very controversial. a lot of people disagree. they feel this is
just another diet in disguise. but i think he is really on to something and the cool part is the barnard institute over there does their own research on plant based and they're really getting it -- >> so dr. barnard is clearly an advocate for vegan lifestyle. >> yes. >> he says it's all about moderation among healthy foods, not foods that can kill you. >> yeah. >> of course, you know, we are kind of raised and taught to just have moderation in all kinds of foods. >> that's what's so interesting about the film. you really have to watch it because he talks about that and how the whole marketing of meat and dairy. that whole industry according to the film, they want to confuse us so we just give up and we say okay, fine, you know what everything in moderation and like he was saying before you know it you're having a little bit of bacon, then you're having processed meat and a lot of dairy and all that adds up. >> uh-huh. >> well, a lot of people have been reacting to this documentary film, a lot of friends among my group, too,
for them and they were like oh my gosh i'm completely like horrified by some of these foods now. >> yeah. >> it really did change their way of thinking but then of course you have the other side as well. let's take a look at what some people are saying out there. someone says what the health is absolutely terrifying. darren echoes sort of the sentiment of our friends. >> yes, we agree. >> madison says when your entire family goes vegan because of what the health. okay, that's a drastic change. did they really just compare eating one egg to smoking five cigarettes? yes, that's right, he did say that. and yo', what the health is a rude awakening to my current diet choices t i guess overall it's sort of like -- it's sort of just makes us all think right, think triple about what we're digesting what we're putting into our bodies because i always think twice about what i'm eating but now this makes me think extra like, okay, maybe i should scale back or, i don't know -- >> and i think unless you true technological raise and grow your own food it really is hard to know where it comes from. >> that's true. >> so. >> the new generationf
