Dr. Kempner finds a way

Lifestyle changes, predominantly diet, have been scientifically shown to have a much greater impact on chronic diseases than the drug therapies that are currently the medical system’s standard of care. On the other hand, diet has consistently been ignored or significantly downplayed by the medical system. The three (external) video presentations below illustrate this, and also introduce another medical pioneer Dr. Walter Kempner (of Duke University Medical School).

The first two presentations are by Dr. Greger. Generally, in Dr. Greger's videos he shows and reads from clips taken from the medical literature. The name of the source can usually be seen in small print in the upper left-hand corner of the clips. (Here the sources may sometimes be hard to read.) These videos describe the effects of diet therapy devised by Dr. Kempner in the 1940s and 50s. The third presentation, on YouTube, is by three physicians and one patient at the Joslin Diabetic Center in Boston - introducing contemporary practice.
