Dr. Greger’s 2014 Year-in-Review Presentation

Order my new live presentation on DVD or download it now (all proceeds go to this 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 to best 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 (and now staff!), I’m able to whittle those down to about 3,000 studies, which are downloaded, categorized, read, analyzed, and churned into a few hundred short videos. This allows me to post new videos and articles every day, year-round, to This certainly makes the site unique. There’s no other science-based source for free daily updates on the latest discoveries in nutrition. The problem is that the amount of information can be overwhelming.

Currently I have videos covering 1,814 nutrition topics. Where do you even begin? Many have expressed their appreciation for the breadth of material, but asked that I try to distill it into a coherent summary of how best to use diet to prevent and treat chronic disease. I took this feedback to heart and in 2012 developed Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death, which explored the role diet may play in preventing, arresting, and even reversing our top 15 killers. Not only did it rise to become one of the Top 10 Most Popular Videos of 2012, it remains my single most viewed video to date, watched over a million times ( is now up to more than a million hits a month!).

In 2013 I developed the sequel, More Than an Apple a Day: Combating Common Diseases, in which I explored the role diet could play in treating some of our most common conditions. I’ve been presenting it around the country over the past year and it ended up #1 on our Top 10 Most Popular Videos of 2013.

Now I’m honored to bring you the third of the trilogy, From Table to Able: Combating Disabling Diseases with Food, in which I explore the role of diet in correcting some of our leading causes of disability. As soon as the current lineup of videos is exhausted in August I’ll post the full presentation online, but if you can’t wait, you can download and watch it right now.

To more easily navigate through the menu of diseases I cover in this new presentation, it is also available on DVD through my website or through Amazon. If you want to share copies with others, I have a five for $40 special on my website (enter coupon code 5FOR40TTA). All proceeds from the sales of all my books, DVDs, and presentations go to the 501c3 nonprofit charity that keeps free for all, for all time. If you want to support this initiative to educate millions about eradicating dietary diseases, please consider making a donation.

After you’ve watched the new presentation, make sure you’re subscribed to get my video updates daily, weekly, or monthly to stay on top of all the latest. For now, though, air-pop some popcorn, sit back, and enjoy!

  1. Just watched the 2014 presentation. “From Table to Able” had me repeatedly thinking of people (in my own life) dealing with the various diseases through prescriptions rather than nutrition. I’ll encourage them all to watch the video – an hour of their time that could perhaps change quality and course of their respective lives. Dr. Greger’s delivery is spot-on – organized and engaging.

    1. VegAtHeart: Since this website was started, I believe that Dr. Greger is now funneling all proceeds into this website. That’s my understanding anyway.

        1. Yes, thank you, Thea! With our new website (launching soon!), this question will be answered in detail on the new FAQ page. Here it goes: “All donations go straight to the 501c3 nonprofit that keeps the site running, from which Dr. Greger draws no salary or compensation. In fact all the proceeds Dr. Greger gets from the sales of his own books, DVDs, and speaking engagements similarly go to charity. How does he pay his bills? He’s got a day job! Dr. Greger proudly serves as the public health director for the Humane Society of the United States.” Pretty neat. :)

  2. Great Presentation review. I always admire Dr. Greger’s efforts because he is a versatile person. He has vast experience in the field through which we all are getting benefits. I hope in coming years he will come up with new ideas and research to help human kind in a new way. Thanks | healthynutritionforme

  3. It was a great round up of 2014. Having gone four years still Dr. Gregers proves to be best in this industry and many more years to come. I wish a best of luck to Dr. Gregers and a good health too. Thanks greyhealthpeople
