  2. This man is a liar and he knows it. He can lie and say things bad about spinach causing kidney stones but yet speak good about cheese which has many bad side effects which he doesn't mention. This video is rigged for a certain reason and it isn't to really help anyone. Any true Adventist could tell you what this man is really all about. I'm from Wisconsin but it doesn't mean I'm going to turn a blind eye to the negative effects of cheese while cutting down one of the most healthy foods ever.

  3. Every one of these doctors, nutritionists, chiropractors, and dieticians have a different angle on diets, foods, what's good and bad what diet you should do and not do. It's just confusing and frustrating. Never thought I'd actually hear that spinach could be potentially bad for you.

  4. he say many things ,but how he will explain about our ancestors who survived and grown without lots of food ,even when they stay without any food for days ??

  5. Spinach is the healthiest known vegetable. "Risk" of kidney stones has to be put into proper perspective. It should not be exaggerated in a way that discourages people from eating spinach…

  6. Hard to give up spinach with so much good about it. I often lightly steam a handful of organic spinach for lunch, drizzle it with lemon, and avocado oil. So if I eat it with cheese or say, sardines…that should be okay, right? Recently a friend told me he had kidney stones…sounds really awful.

  7. People! I suffered from kidney stones from eating raw spinach but the worst offender is TEA, you know, black, green, all the REAL teas, Chai was a killer and I always got a kidney stone within an hour of drinking it. BUT drinking Braggs Apple Cider Vinegar kills the stone! It literally dissolves it…so no more trips to the emergency room for demerol….no more walking the floor drinking water to flush it out….drink your Braggs every day and you will never have another calcium stone again. God Bless us, every one.
