Rubin wrote The Maker's Diet and other books. Supposedly healed himself of crohns or similar with juicing and raw foods but now pushes meat, dairy and wonderful supplements available from him, of course...hehehe
one guy looks like a salesman and has taken care to be filmed in a good outdoor enviroment with great lighting and is younger ( the classic "goodlooking" salesperson... not saying he feels completely dishonest to me, i believe he believes in what he is saying to an extent, but he is a little smug for my tastes... ) and the other unfortunately is filmed with awful lighting which ages him, in what looks like a not so colorful kitchen is at least 20 years older anyway and seems to be not especially inspired by/for this interview which i totally understand as I think it is by now patently clear where the interviewers alliegance lies and this surely is affecting the outcome of the video... so much for objectivity!
Xenia, I very much agree with you, I noticed the same things.
After watching a dvd of a lecture from Daniel Vitalis I bought " the other guy's " book called " patient heal thyself ,very nice about his healing journey and it has an interesting chapter about how your colon is connected to your brain,but then he starts about his diet " the makers diet" and I stopped reading. :)
Is what Jordan says about k2 true? Did "god really create animals for us to eat"? I think it's just the video quality but, it kinda portrays jordan as looking "healthier". I do not suspect good intentions at work here. Mostly one person is promoting a cruelty free diet and the other is fractionalizing it and exlpaining how bloody meat is nececsary for human nutrition. Does this video bother anyone else? Ian, is the second one out yet?

Vitamin K2 like B12 is produced by bacteria not animals:

As far as I know vegan K2 supplements are available. This is just the same sort of anti-vegan fear mongering we'd expect to hear from people who'd likely go to war to defend their right to eat bacon.
It would be an understatement to say that Paul Nison is not my favorite person in the world. I will say no more.
Thanx 4 adressing that myth B. Using fear as a motivator can be effective if used on the uninformed I see. It would be very hard to sort through all these myths and doubts if it wasn't 4 all the help on this site. I just can't help thinking about all the people who will see this video without having this site as a backup, because without disecting this type of media it is easy to be decieved. We live in a image conscious society and looking at these two clips side by side will definitly give many a false impression I think
