  1. BUNCH OF CRAP. SPIRULINA IS THE REASON IVE BECOME A STRONGER, LEANER, AND LIGHTER HEALTHIER ENDURANCE ATHLETE. IVE BEEN TAKING IT INSTEAD OF COFFEE AND WORKS SO MUCH BETTER AND I KNOW MANY ENDURANCE ATHLETES LIKE ME OR BETTER THAT BENEFIT FROM IT AND PEOPLE THAT SURVIVED CANCER BECAUSE OF SPIRULINA

  2. This information would have a lot more credibility if it differentiated dried spirulina and fresh spirulina. The foul odor and taste in the powdered form comes from the decomposition of the spirulina during processing. Fresh spirulina paste has no odor or taste. These "experts" are way off the mark by making these blanket statements.

  3. Wish I would have known this before I bought that $30 something bottle of Hawaiian spirulina… I swear… how many damn supplement gurus have been advertising Spirulina as a "super food" here on YouTube for the past year? Additionally, Dr. Eric Berg is saying its B12 is actually a B12 analogue that in fact CREATES A B12 DEFICIENCY?!!! Looks like Chlorella is the only option on the table.

  4. spirulina gave me flu like symptoms for 4 days. it started with light sensitivity. Then a headaches followed by vomiting and diarrhea. It was a horrible experience.

  5. No doc but ill tell u what is dangerous..
    Dam near every prescription drug u guys give us is toxic and deadly…killer side effects…talk about that doc..

  6. THIS IS NOT THE ONLY DOCTOR WHO HAS LABELED A NATURAL FOOD AS DANGEROUS. THERE IS A MULTITUDE OF ALLOPATHIC DOCTORS WHO MISGUIDE CONSUMERS ABOUT NATURAL FOODS, AS THEY WILL POTENTIALLY LOSE THE CASH COW IF EVERYBODY STARTED TO PRACTICE NATURAL HEALING WITH APPROPRIATE FOODS.
    A FRIEND OF MINE ALMOST DIED DUE TO OVERDOSE OF MULTIPLE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED ALLOPATHIC DRUGS. ONE DAY HE DECIDED TO STOP ALLOPATHIC TREATMENT AND CURE HIMSELF WITH NATURAL FOODS. SPIRULINA WAS HIS FIRST FOOD BASED SUPPLEMENT. IN SIX MONTHS TIME HE WAS BACK ON HIS FEET, IN A YEAR HE WAS FREE OF ALL SYMPTOMS WHICH HAD NECESSITATED THE USE OF ALLOPATHIC DRUGS.,
    I STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT WITH APPROPRIATE FOOD INTAKE, DAILY EXERCISE, AND RESTFUL SLEEP, ONE CAN AVOID THE NEED FOR SEEKING AN ALLOPATHIC TREATMENT FOR MOST COMMON AILMENTS OF OUR WORLD, SUCH AS DIABETES.

  7. It is bullshit video…spirulina is a wonderfull food and also nutrient supplement food..for all age peoples…i dont care about this video..

  8. OK we got it doctor of death, everyone should buy the book but if we get sick we march right into your office for some drugs that have a 9000% mark up so you can hang out at the country club. Drugs that treat everything and cure nothing as they create other conditions that will require even more drugs. We get it, stay away from the healing foods and rely on you guys that have a life expectancy of about 60 so we can die early just like you.

  9. MDs are the single largest causes of death in the US. Over 225,000 people die each and every year just from drugs these killers prescribe, not to mention other insanity, yet now they point their bloody fingers at health foods. Go figure.

  10. I bought spirulina to help prevent cancer and increase iron..it can give me Alzheimer’s…it can give me cancer but also prevent it..it can cause neuro disorders…it can cause ALS. But can be so good for you.
    Folic acid can cause bowel cancer..despite being in very healthy foods.
    Im honestly sick of trying..why should I bother anymore…
    Fish..full of mercury bu contains good stuff for you.
    I just want to prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s and heart attacks. It healthy food isn’t really heslthy anymore.

  11. me and my 14y old dog started taking Chlorella around 2 weeks ago , i take 3x 500mg tablets in the Morning (my dog 2x500mg) and anoter 3x500mg in the evening (my dog 2x500mg)
    after a week i really got a bad acne breakout , and my dog never stopped licking and scratching but i though this is part of the "cleaning process" and continued taking Chlorella . Now after 2 weeks my Acne is still bad and on top me and my Dog both get diarrhoea. So, as from yesterday i stopped using this Chlorella

  12. Dumb video! mixing up information and not telling the truth! Spirulina is wonderful and a superfood A Big Thumbs Down for this misinformation video

  13. Spirulina needs to be grown in a clean environment. It has the ability to absorb heavy metals and toxins. When you consume good quality spirulina, it helps your body get rid of built up toxins. Neutritional value and the ability to remove toxins in the body outweighs risks in my opinion. BTW spirulina is not an algea but a cyanobacteria. And a good probiotic.

  14. Please read the Articles you talking about… It´s talking about a Quality Problem of Spirulina and contamination. SPIRULINA is not able to produce any Neuro or Liver Toxin… It has not the Gene for it, since 2005 the Genome is known.
    Many think to stay objective, it´s our duty when you inform People

  15. Spirulina removes many toxins from the body. It removes heavy metals and such. It is likely that if it has toxins itself they are carried out of the body as well. On the other hand chlorella grabs onto heavy metals and then drops them rather quick. Therefore chlorella it's useless and high quality Spirulina like Hawaiian spirulina is very beneficial. In other words it is the opposite of what is stated in the video.
