Volume 32 Cover

New DVD, New Annual Talk, New Live Q&As & HOW NOT TO DIE now out in Spanish

Decades ago, when I was still studying biophysics at Cornell’s Agriculture School, I reached out to Professor Gertrude Buehring about her landmark findings that a cancer-causing virus was infecting the U.S. meat and dairy supply. What could I do to help warn the public about the potential threat? To my surprise, she pleaded with me to keep quiet. She still had to prove people were being infected by the virus and she had yet to demonstrate a link to human cancers. If word got out prematurely, she was afraid the meat and dairy industries would threaten her funding and shut down her work. So I kept quiet… until now.

We now have evidence that as many as 37% of human breast cancer cases may be attributable to exposure to bovine leukemia virus. Coming up on NutritionFacts.org and available now in my new DVD are my three new videos on the shocking revelation:

  • Is Bovine Leukemia Virus in Milk Infectious?
  • The Role of Bovine Leukemia Virus in Breast Cancer
  • Industry Response to Bovine Leukemia Virus in Breast Cancer

I also have new videos queued on the paleo diet, resistant starch, and why vegans should consider taking DHA supplements. If you don’t want to wait, all of these videos are available now as a digital download as part of my new Latest in Clinical Nutrition volume 32 (all proceeds go to charity). It can also be ordered as a physical DVD.

The current batch of videos from volume 31 are about to run out on NutritionFacts.org. So, starting next month and running until October, I’ll roll out the videos from this new DVD, volume 32. The DVDs give folks the opportunity to sneak-preview videos months ahead of time, watch them all straight through, and share them as gifts.  However, there is nothing on the DVDs that won’t eventually end up free online at NutritionFacts.org. If you’d like the works—50+ hours of video—you can get the complete DVD collection.

Here’s the full list of chapters from the new volume 32 DVD—a preview of what’s to come over the next few months on NutritionFacts.org:
  1. How to Avoid the Obesity-Related Plastic Chemical BPA
  2. Maternal Diet May Affect Stress Responses in Children

Translating NutritionFacts.org Into Other Languages


Due to the overwhelming international interest in my work, we’ve decided to translate the entire website into other languages. With more than a thousand videos to translate, this is a huge undertaking and I need your help. Not only do we need dozens of volunteer translators for each language, but we need Translations Team Leaders to help coordinate these efforts. Even if you don’t speak other languages, if you are organized and have good interpersonal skills please consider applying to facilitate one of these translation projects so we can inspire as many people as possible to join the global evidence-based nutrition revolution! For other volunteer opportunities that arise, make sure to sign up for our volunteer newsletter.


2016 Annual Talk—Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the launch of my 2016 annual presentation! It will appear as the NutritionFacts.org video-of-the-day on Friday, August 5th. It is the U.S. version of my London presentation, a best-of compilation of my last four year-in-review talks. Please help spread it far and wide to those within your circles that you think may benefit.

More Live Q&A with Dr. G

I had so much fun doing live Q&A’s this month on Facebook and Twitter I’ve not only decided to make them monthly recurring events, but I’ve added a third on YouTube. So I’m going to be doing three live half-hour Q&A sessions on Thursday, August 25th 2016:

  • Facebook Live: At noon ET on 8/25 go to our Facebook page to watch live and ask questions.
  • Twitter Periscope: At 7pm ET on 8/25 go to our Twitter page to watch live and ask even more questions.
  • YouTube Live Stream: At 8pm ET on 8/25 go here to watch live and ask even more questions! 

Hopefully between all three I’ll get all your questions answered—at least until next month!

In health,
Michael Greger, M.D.

    1. Hi, sorry this is a late reply, but we are actually doing sweatshirts and hats shortly! The information will be in our e-newsletter on Oct 27 and we will post it to social media, also.

  1. The British and the Americans, two peoples separated by a common language. Just in case you were wondering why there is a distinct “British” version of How Not To Die. :-)

  2. Will there be any way to watch the live Q and A sessions on a recorded basis going forward? If so then perhaps you could provide a link on your website after the fact?

      1. Thea Im replying to this to make sure a moderator gets to see it. I think the website would benefit a “DVD” or “Forthcoming” linking to this posts. I use to track what new videos are coming and keep waiting for a new DVD release to see if coming subjects interest me enought for me to buy the DVD and I always need to do a search to find this posts. Thank you for your attention (maybe Im missing something)

        1. Alexandre: I’m not understanding what feature you are hoping for. But I wonder if this would meet your need: You can sign up to get on the NutritionFacts e-mail list. And if you do, you will automatically get an e-mail with information about forthcoming video titles along with a link to purchase the DVD/volume early if desired. That way you would not have to search for anything. The information would be delivered right to you. Would that work for you?

          1. Thea thank you for your quick reply. Yes, I do receive the newsletter but a new comer or distracted users of the website dont, so its a lose oportnity.

            And even for me, that got the newsletter emails, then it takes a lot of time from DVD to DVD so everytime I want to check what new videos are coming next I have to do this search. Thanks again!

            1. Alexandre: Ah. So, is this what you are looking for? : An easy to find page that lists all upcoming video titles. Along with a link to purchase the DVD??? Let me know if I got this right and if so, I’ll pass on the request.

              1. Thea: Yes, exactly. Something like an “Upcoming Videos/DVD” button next or before the DONATE button in the top menu. I think it will be great for people like me who want to know whats coming up next but also an easy way for new people to know something like this exist and possibly contribute with DVD/digital DVD sales. Thank you!

  3. When I click on nutritionfacts.org it comes up with this as the 1st video – The Hispanic Paradox: Why do Latinos Live Longer?
    Is anyone else having this problem? Started this Wednesday.

  4. “How Not To Die In Spanish”. It’s a horrible way to go! My father-in-law died in Spanish. He was talking CRAZY! We couldn’t understand a word he was blabbering! (we don’t speak Spanish). One minute it was “besa me” this, the next minute “Fongul You”. And in the end it was “Hasta La VISTA Baby — Ciao!”

  5. Not sure if Dr. Greger has any control over this, but I notice on Amazon that the price for “How Not To Die” in Spanish is significantly higher than the price for the book in English.

    The Kindle editions are priced pretty much equally, but the hardcover and paper back for the English version are around $11 and $16 respectively, and the Spanish version in paperback is $40 minimum, with no Prime option either.

    Is there somewhere else that sells it at a fair price? I hesitate to recommend it to my Spanish-speaking friends if it is almost 4 times the price of the English edition, as it seems unfair. Is there any way to remedy this strange situation?

    1. NaveedG: I asked the NutritionFacts staff about this. Here’s the reply:

      “So unfortunately the book has a whole separately publishing company so we really can’t do anything about the price. My thought is the price will drop a lot in the next few weeks/months, it’s just new so it’s more expensive. When MG’s book came out it was like 27.99 on amazon and now it’s only 17 or something

      Sooo hopefully the price will drop.. we unfortunately don’t have any control over that..”


      I don’t know why the Spanish version is so much more. It does not seem fair. But it sounds like there is a hope that the price will go down. I hope it does as there is a big audience we could reach!

  7. Hello
    Can someone please tell me how I can order the How Not to Die book in Croatian? I live in the US but have in-laws that would love to read the book and I can’t seem to find it anywhere in Croatian for ordering online. Thank you!

    1. Hi Nicole,

      Thank you for asking! While I’m not sure which outlet is recommended for buying the book, I did find several online stores selling the Croatian version and hope it can help lead you the right way. The book is titled “KAKO NE UMRIJETI” there:


      Hope this helps!
