The brain is the last frontier in medicine, uncharted territory that commands the attention of any true explorer.
To see any graphs, charts, graphics, images, and quotes to which Dr. Greger may be referring, watch the above video. This is a list of diseases commonly found here and in populations that eat and live like the U.
These are among our most common diseases, like obesity. This landmark study, suggesting that coronary heart disease was practically nonexistent among those eating traditional plant-based diets in Africa, claimed that there was adequate autopsy evidence to confirm that fact.
This hearsay talk greeted any new doctor on arrival in Africa.

Out of autopsies in Uganda, one myocardial infarction.

He compares it to an engine left out in the rain. Examination of all engines would reveal that those out in the rain were stopping, but those under cover were running well. However, considering the failing engine as the ailing patient, this is seldom the priority of modern medicine.
And then, of course, there are all the industries enticing people to the edge, and profiting from pushing people off.Regardless of difficulties in data acquisition, map representation, scale, statistical analysis, and the interpretation and utility of results, the study of disease distribution may well be the most challenging and fascinating research area within the entire discipline of geography.
