Volume 19

Dr. Greger’s New Nutrition DVD Now Available

Exciting news! I just signed a book deal with a new non-fiction division of famed science publisher Macmillan. The book is provisionally entitled How Not to Die: Simple Secrets for Longer Living. The manuscript is due by March 2015, so the 9 month gestation starts this week!

That’s the good news. The bad news is that with a new book project taking over my life I may have to scale back on new videos for NutritionFacts.org. I’m already reaching millions through the website, but a smash bestseller could expose this life-changing, life-saving research to millions more. All proceeds from the sales of the book will go to charity, the 501c3 nonprofit organization that keeps NutritionFacts.org up and running, as does all the money I receive for speaking engagements and DVD sales.

And speaking of DVDs… the newest volume of my Latest in Clinical Nutrition DVD series is now available. Order on my website or through Amazon (all proceeds go to the 501c3 nonprofit charity that keeps NutritionFacts.org thriving). It can also be ordered as an instant video download.

The current batch of videos from volume 18 on NutritionFacts.org just ran out, so starting this month and running through until August, I’ll be rolling out the videos from this new DVD, volume 19. The DVDs give folks the opportunity to sneak-preview videos months ahead of time, watch them all straight through, and share them as gifts, but there is nothing on the DVDs that won’t eventually end up free online here at NutritionFacts.org. If you’d like the works—40+ hours of video—I have a special on my complete DVD collection.

Here’s the list of chapters from the new volume 19 DVD — a preview of what’s to come over the next few months on NutritionFacts.org:

  1. Turning the Clock Back 14 Years
  2. Longer Life Within Walking Distance
  3. Do Vegetarians Get Enough Protein?
  4. Anti-inflammatory Life Is a Bowl of Cherries
  5. Gout Treatment with a Cherry on Top
  6. Watermelon for Sore Muscle Relief
  7. Cadmium and Cancer: Plant vs. Animal Foods
  8. Turmeric Curcumin and Colon Cancer
  9. Topical Application of Turmeric Curcumin for Cancer
  10. When Low Risk Means High Risk
  11. Broccoli: Sprouts vs. Supplements
  12. Dark Chocolate and Artery Function
  13. Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Conflicts of Interest
  14. Alzheimer’s Disease: Grain Brain or Meathead?
  15. Anti-Cancer Potential of Sweet Potato Proteins
  16. The Best Way to Cook Sweet Potatoes
  17. Cooking to Live Longer
  18. Essential Tremor and Diet
  19. Preventing Liver Cancer with Coffee?

  1. Good luck with the book Dr. Greger. I hope it is a smash success. We need a high profile book out there that presents the proven research about nutrition and the benefit of vegan diets instead of all this Paleo and Grain Brain nonsense. The book Skinny Bitches helped for a while as has other books, but with your wit and direct style, I see a best seller coming. Can’t wait to buy it for myself and a few for friends.

    1. BB – I agree. I’m bummed about a slow down of videos on this site, but I’m very excited about the book. I think it will be really great.

  2. Dr. Greger: I have a suggestion regarding your new book. I have no doubt that the book will contain a thorough reference section with all sources cited. What I was thinking was how nice it would be to have that in electronic form like you have here under “sources cited” under each video. And I was thinking how nice it would be to have the book be a gateway to this NutritionFacts website.

    So, my thought was to take a page from the “Building Bone Vitality” book and let people know in a couple places in your book that they can see the full reference list electronically, with links to the original papers when available, here on NutritionFacts.org/LongLifeReferencePage — or something like that.

    Just and idea. And you probably already thought of it. I just thought it was worth bringing up.

    I’m looking forward to reading your latest contribution to the world.

    1. that is a thing that make the difference from a good site, and an awesome site… in fact Nutritionfacts.org is awesome… :-)

  3. I am sure your book will be a success! Your weekly videos have motivated me to change towards a plant based diet. Until your book comes out I plan on reading “The China Study”

    1. Linda: Re: “Your weekly videos have motivated me…”
      Congratulations on your journey!

      Concerning “The China Study,” I think it is an excellent book and am sure you will be glad you read it. I also think the book is a great compliment to the video/documentary Forks Over Knives, which you might also want to check out.

      Also thought I would mention Dr. Greger’s two summary videos since you only mentioned his weekly videos. The longer summary videos are a lot of fun to watch and also quite motivational:


      Good luck.

  4. Talented experts don’t need so much luck! Thank you so much for all the good work you do and best of luck with the book. Please let us know how/when it can be pre-ordered. I’m currently reading “Disease Proof” by David L. Katz. The more the message gets out about what *science* tells us about our wellness the less the public will feel the need to listen to self-appointment gurus and health advice-dispensing actors and Playboy models. So on you go fighting the good fight Michael! Your site’s video library should keep us busy enough for the next 9 months!

  5. Dr. Greger, Congratulations on your book deal! I want you to know how much your nutritional advice and science has meant for my health. I drink Hibiscus eat, eat my greens, beans, and exercise. You have provided a wonderful service by creating a supportive, well-educated community, where members can share their experience and knowledge about nutrition. Make sure you use us to do surveys, vote on ideas, rank order suggestions, etc. Best of luck!
