“Uprooting” DVD Now Available (all proceeds to charity)

Every year I scour the world’s scholarly literature on clinical nutrition pulling together what I find to be the most interesting, practical, and groundbreaking science on how best to feed ourselves and our families. I start with the 12,000 or so papers published annually on human nutrition and, thanks to a crack team of volunteers, am able to whittle those down to about 3,000 studies, which are downloaded, read, analyzed, and churned into a few hundred short videos so I can post a new video every day, year-round, to NutritionFacts.org. This certainly makes the site unique. There’s no other science-based source for free daily video updates on the latest discoveries in nutrition. The problem is that the amount of information can be overwhelming.

NutritionFacts.org now has more than 500 videos covering over 1,000 subjects. Where do you even begin? Many have expressed their appreciation for the breadth of material presented, but asked that I please try to condense this body of work into a coherent summary on how best to use diet to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic disease. I took this feedback to heart and developed a brand-new presentation that I just premiered and will be giving around the country all year. If you weren’t at the premiere, no worries–Aaron Wissner of Local Future was, and he graciously volunteered to videotape it and so now it’s available to all!

Click here to order my new presentation on DVD for $10. It is also available on Amazon. Hopefully sharing my work this way will be easier than inviting folks over for a 20-hour NutritionFacts.org online movie marathon! :)

  1. Dr Greger –

    What do you think about Beneforte Broccoli [http://skepticalvegan.com/2012/07/06/beneforte-broccoli/]? Would it be a good alternative to broccoli sprouts for someone concerned about foodborne illness (even though I understand that broccoli sprouts are safer than most sprouts)?


    1. Beneforte Broccoli is produced by Monsanto. I’m not excited about supporting their GM efforts. Perhaps some of the heirloom varieties would be just as nutritious.

  2. Dr. Greger – Your new DVD talk is the best ever by you! I’ll recommend that J. Morris Hicks publicize it in his daily Healthy Eating — Healthy World blog.  I’ll tell my on-line contacts, too, plus play it at my next Healthy Lifestyle Education meeting.

  3. Thank you so much for the “Uprooting” DVD you sent me.  If you were the only speaker at the Vegetarian Summerfest at Pitt-Johnstown, PA it would have been worth attending.  I transitioned from a vegetarian to a vegan mostly because of your presentation!  Thank you again!

  4. Fantastic video!  Best I’ve ever seen.  Should be required viewing in every medical college and to as wide an audience as possible. The Science is overwhelming.  Thanks, Dr Greger!….Mike

  5. My video just arrived today! Can I show it to my group “Sungine Coast Vegans” and advertise the free screening publicly?
    I held a free screening for “Vegucated” and 50 people came!

  8. Does anyone know where I can find the sources that Dr. Greger used for this presentation? I’m a nutrition student and would like to learn more about this subject.

  9. Please just distribute the DVD digitally instead of requiring the unnecessary ecological footprint of mining and deforesting the materials for the dvd, manufacturing them, and distributing them.

    You can even give it away for free and provide donation options — https://github.com/bevry/goopen#how-do-i-get-paid — to have your message reach everyone in this world, even the majority who can never even afford it (but will soon have internet connections despite this), and still have you get paid.

    You’re message is extremely valuable, it deserves to reach everyone.

    1. Nadja: Underneath each of the “Videos Of The Day” have a “Sources Cited” section which can be expanded. From there, Dr. Greger lists the sources and even links to them when possible.

      The annual summary talks, such as this “Uprooting…” one do not have a giant list of sources. Instead, you have to find the Video Of The Day which relates to the subject you are interested in – and then you can go to the Sources Cited section.
