Odd: Dr. Mercola interviews Dr. Michael Greger

Strange stuff.

Dr. Joe Mercola, whose website is filled with anti-vegetarian articles (http://search.mercola.com/results.aspx?q=vegetarian ), has conducted a rather complimentary interview with prominent vegan physician Michael Greger:


Specific recommendations for a healthy diet include: eating more fruit, vegetables, legumes, nuts and grains; cutting down on salt, sugar and fats. It is also advisable to choose unsaturated fats, instead of saturated fats and towards the elimination of trans-fatty acids."
- United Nations' World Health Organization

I saw that! I wish Greger had refused! Mercola is such a sham, masquerading as health while feeding big ag.
I truly believe this interview is a cover to show they're "fair and unbiased and have considered all sides". Of course then they rip it apart

I actually didn't watch it, I am quite biased when it comes to mercola

It is like the tobacco companies pretending to have programs to stop teen smoking, or like the infant formula companies pretending to support breastfeeding while subtly undermining new mothers' confidence in their ability to breastfeed.

Anytime I think I'm perfect, I remember that my cousin lives on an island, and I've never walked over to visit her.
