Official NutritionFacts.org launch date: Monday, August 22

August 8, 2011 by Michael Greger M.D. in News with 17 Comments

NutritionFacts.org launches two weeks from today, which means that starting 8/22 I’m going to be uploading a new video every day, seven days a week (for at least the first 365 days). I’ll write daily blogs to put the new videos in context, cover newly published papers, and address breaking news. I’ll take research requests, respond to comments, and answer any questions anyone has. Our mission is to be a noncommercial, strictly science-based source for the latest in clinical nutrition.

And our mission begins two weeks from today.

      I’m really looking forward to the blog aspect. Let me know if you have any topics you’d like me to cover.

    Such a great initiative. I am promoting this website to anyone that is interested or not :) People need to hear about the science related to nutrition over and over again, because bringing about change is hard, especially when it comes to diet. This format with videos and explanations is very user friendly and easy to ‘digest’. Thank you very much for providing this information for free.

      My pleasure-stay tuned for more!

    Agreed with all the above, I was previously not interested in nutrition but since finding your lectures and videos I have developed a passion for optimum nutrition (which also is 100% consistent with my food choices and ‘beliefs’).

    As my partner exclaimed just from overhearing a video, you have the ability to explain complicated issues in an extremely easy to understand and interesting way. Anyone of any level can understand and enjoy the videos, while improving their life and health in the process! Yay!

      Isn’t it amazing? I feel the same way. The more I learn, the healthier I want to eat! On some level, for example, I always knew broccoli was good for you, but it wasn’t until I learned why it was so good (boosting the enzyme systems in our liver that detoxify carcinogens) that I strove to include so many greens in my family’s diet.

      And should your partner or anyone else ever not understand what I’m trying to say in a video, please email me or leave a comment and I will try my best to clarify.

      If you check my calendar, you’ll see I’ll be back in Hawai’i in April–definitely one of my favorite speaking venues :)

    We are SO lucky to have you doing this, to help us, and to help us help those who don’t believe they can do this. What a blessing! ((Thank you!))

    It is all about empowerment. Given the proven power of good nutrition, I am convinced the solution to our epidemic of chronic disease is a motivated and educated public. The truth shall set us free… of heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, obesity, etc.! :)
