Volume 33 Cover

Dr. Greger’s DVDs All Now in Streaming Video

Before there was NutritionFacts.org, my work existed as a series of DVDs (and before that as VHS tapes!). Now that all of my work is available online for free, the DVDs just package nine weeks’ worth of upcoming videos onto one disk. This offers folks the opportunity to sneak-preview videos months ahead of time, watch them all straight through, and share them as gifts. But the DVDs were only available as huge clunky downloads… until now.

Volume 33Volume 33

My new DVD is now available as streaming video, like Netflix, so you can start watching it immediately. In this new volume 33 DVD I have videos on natural treatments for arthritis, hypertension, and prostate cancer; the pros and cons of soy foods; milk and type 1 diabetes; the optimal daily vitamin C intake; and whether or not we should all be taking a daily aspirin to help ward off heart disease and cancer.

The current batch of videos from volume 32 just ran out on NutritionFacts.org. So, starting tomorrow and running until January, I’ll roll out this new set. They will all eventually be available for free online, but if you don’t want to wait you can watch them all streaming right now. Checkout will be the same as before, but now you’ll be able to choose whether you want to download the new volume or stream it (or both!). You can also order a physical DVD of volume 33, as well as a DVD of my 2016 annual presentation.

Here’s the full list of chapters from the new volume 33 DVD—a preview of what’s to come over the next few months on NutritionFacts.org:
 
  1. Club Soda for Stomach Pain and Constipation
  2. Sesame Seeds for Knee Osteoarthritis

Happy Birthday… to me

It was my birthday last week!

If you want to get me something special, the best thing I could ever ask for is to just continue to do this life-changing, life-saving work. If you support my mission to educate millions about evidence-based eating, you could make a tax-deductible Happy Birthday donation to my 501c3 nonprofit organization NutritionFacts.org using a credit card, Bitcoin, a direct PayPal link, transferring stock, or by sending a check to “NutritionFacts.org” PO Box 11400, Takoma Park, MD 20913. Looking forward to another year on Earth trying to make it a healthier place.

 

Share Your Story!

When I talk to other lifestyle medicine docs and ask them what made them see the light, the rational part of my brain is hoping they’re going to say it was a data-driven decision based on the overwhelming science. But instead, it’s often just a single one of their patients finding out about it on their own, trying it out, and getting better. No matter how massive the mountain of evidence, our brains seem to be hardwired for storytelling. It was, after all, just one person—grandma Greger—that inspired me down my path.

We get people sharing amazing stories of health transformation with us all the time, but I’ve always resisted posting them. Why showcase anecdotes when there are randomized controlled studies effectively proving the case? But now I’m realizing that testimonials function not so much as evidence but inspiration. As long as the hardcore evidence is there to back it up, before-and-after stories can serve as motivation for others in a way that all the graphs and charts in the world may not. I figure it can be a way of putting a face on all the numbers. So, for example, we just posted the story of Alecia’s husband, whom I met in Texas this past April (warning: tearjerker alert!). All those years he was just 3 days away….

Has evidence-based eating changed your life? If you would be willing to share your success with others, please fill out our new testimonials form and your story may end up being featured (with your permission of course).

 

We Didn’t Have Hoodies… Until Now

It’s been so great to see all the NutritionFacts.org t-shirts in the audience at my talks. It’s getting a little chilly for short-sleeve shirts, and so as a fundraiser, for a limited time only, we are offering NutritionFacts.org hoodies and hats. You can get one here: https://www.booster.com/Nutrition-facts from now until November 10th.

 

Volunteer Positions Update

Do you live in the DC metro area? Our amazing online article retrieval team is able to download the vast majority of the papers I need for my research, but there are some obscure journals that require a visit to the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda Maryland (Medical Center subway stop). If some detective work at the largest medical library in the world sounds like your cup of of hibiscus tea, please email our Volunteer Coordinator at steven@nutritionfacts.org.

We also still really need more online article retrievers, wherever you live. We have an amazing team already, but we’ve slipped down to only grabbing about 1,400 papers a week when we really need to be collecting closer to 2,000 weekly to stay ahead of the game. Apply to help here.

We also have a new set of volunteer openings. We are looking for volunteers to help write concise summaries of our 1,400+ subjects for display on NutritionFacts.org topics pages. This will help us with “search engine optimization” (improving our standings in online searches). Having a health or medical background would be a bonus, but is not necessary.  For more information and to apply to help out, head to our volunteer opportunities page.

 

Calling for Outreach Grant Proposals

Our purpose is research and education. I think we’ve excelled at the research part, but have fallen short on our education mission. It’s not enough to just make the science available; we have to get it out there. Through word-of-mouth we’re already reaching millions, but it keeps me up at night thinking about all the people out there who could benefit from this life-saving information but just haven’t been exposed to it.

Yet.

We constantly get requests for outreach resources: from printed leaflets and posters for doctor’s offices to ad campaigns and speaker trainings. But outreach has never been our strong suit; we’re too busy churning through the nutrition literature. We’ve never really engaged in a concerted outreach effort, but now we’re hoping to change that by outsourcing it. This all started with a generous NutritionFacts.org supporter stepping forward and offering to earmark donations to offer grants to like-minded groups to help disseminate my research. So if you’re involved in a 501c3 nonprofit organization that you think that might be able to help spread the word, fill out our new grant application.

 

Live Q&A’s 

Every month now I’m doing Q&A’s live from my treadmill, and November 29th is the next one.

  • Facebook Live: At noon ET November 29th go to our Facebook page to watch live and ask questions.
  • YouTube Live Stream: At 8pm ET November 29th go here to watch live and ask even more questions

Hopefully between those two I can get all your questions answered—at least until next month!

 

In health,

Michael Greger, M.D.

  1. Dr G is a true idealist – all this work for free – just to make people healthier – and put his colleagues out of work :-)

    1. Actually, you have your work, and then some, just convincing your clientele to pay attention to a whole-foods, plant-based diet.

      Your odds are not that good, either, considering you are up against the combined power of the agricultural, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, any and all of which have resorted to deception on a mass scale.

      In profitable contrast, “pharmaceutical-mode” therapy does not boast a high cure rate, but does create repeat customers, and an expanding patient profile of drug usage.

  2. Dr. Greger, did you know that streaming videos generates hazardously high RF (Microwave) radiation pulsating emissions that damage mitochondrial DNA? That’s right, you’re providing healthful dietary advice via a streaming service that’s a huge contributor to damaging mitochondrial DNA. You are not informed, nor are the average American aware of this invisible health threat.

    1. Molecular damage to tissue requires ionizing radiation, and the EMF you mention does not ionize.

      For that matter, even microwave (RF) radiation from a microwave oven does not ionize either, although it does excite molecules within nearby materials, producing heat.

      The International Agency for Research on Cancer (Lyon, France) warns there could be risk from non-ionizing radiation, but that concern is not borne out by current research.

  3. Dr. Greger, or staff– Good news about the streaming option, but if we would like to download the entire DVD as an ISO, is that available for at least the older DVD issues?
