Volume 9 Videos

The “volumes” refer to a series of DVDs upon which NutritionFacts.org is based (all proceeds donated to charity). The DVDs give folks the opportunity to sneak preview videos months ahead of time, watch them all straight through, and share as gifts, but there’s nothing on the DVDs that won’t eventually end up online free at NutritionFacts.org.

Volume 9 is the fourth of six DVDs covering the peer-reviewed scientific nutrition literature published between spring 2011 and spring 2012. For more information about Volume 9 click here.
