Who We Are
NutritionFacts.org is a 501c3 nonprofit charity that provides free updates on the latest in nutrition research via bite-sized, easy to understand videos. It’s a strictly non-commercial, science-based public service provided by Michael Greger, MD. There are hundreds of videos on more than a thousand topics, with new videos and articles uploaded every day.
Why We Need Your Support
NutritionFacts.org is offered absolutely free of charge. There’s no special member area where you pay a fee to get extra life-saving information. That’s not how medicine should work. That’s not how science should work. What membership websites are saying, in essence, is give them money or else they’ll keep something from us that could make our families healthier. That’s unacceptable to us. Advances in health sciences should be freely available and accessible to all.
NutritionFacts.org will never accept ad revenue or product endorsements. We believe commercial interests can have a corrupting influence on the field of nutrition. How then do we keep afloat financially? NutritionFacts.org is a labor of love. Most of us who work on this project are volunteers (including Dr. Greger, who donates his time and receives no income from the site), but there are still significant staffing, server and development costs to run a video-based website that garners more than a million hits a month.
NutritionFacts.org was launched with seed money and support from the Jesse & Julie Rasch Foundation, but now it’s completely up to viewers like you to keep the site up and running. We are counting on NutritionFacts.org thriving on a “Wikipedia model,” offering a public service considered so valuable that viewers will feel moved to support it and keep this life-changing, life-saving resource free for all, for all time.
