How to Survive a Pandemic is now out! Note: if you checked on Amazon and noticed the Kindle and paperback versions were not available before, they are now! Join my email list to receive the preface of the book for free.
I have a feeling many think How Not to Die is my first book, but it’s actually my 4th. Before I started NutritionFacts.org and switched to working on chronic disease, I had a career as Public Health Director at HSUS in Washington, DC specializing in emerging infectious disease. It was in that role that I was invited to defend Oprah, appeared on the Colbert Report, lectured at NIH and the Conference on World Affairs, and got to testify before Congress.
With my How Not to Diet book tour suspended, the COVID-19 crisis allowed me an opportunity to draw on my past expertise to fast-track this new book.
If you haven’t seen it yet, we’ve put up a resource page all about COVID-19 with videos, links to my pandemic blog post and special Q&A sessions, a DIY hand sanitizer recipe, and more. Check it out here. And I’ve been doing a bunch of interviews lately, notably one with Moby and Joaquin Phoenix that you can watch here, as well as an article from Vox.
New webinar – June 26
On June 26th I’m going to be doing a 1.5-hour live webinar to explain the rationale for my new vitamin B12 recommendations and answer any questions you may have. I’ll start out with a discussion of the symptoms of B12 deficiency and then explain how I arrived at what I consider the optimal dose of vitamin B12 supplements in children, adults, the elderly, and during pregnancy. I’ll clarify why cyanocobalamin (not methylcobalamin) is the best type of vitamin B12 supplement and address the data suggesting B12 supplements cause acne, bone fractures, and lung cancer. I’ll also cover the healthiest food sources of B12 for those that don’t want to take supplements. I hope you’ll join me!

Registration ends: June 19
Webinar date & time: June 26, 2:00-3:30pm ET
Replay of my COVID-19 Q&A last month.
How does the nutrition and health benefits of quinoa compare to whole grains, and does it aid in lowering triglycerides?
The rise in the U.S. calorie supply responsible for national weight gain and the obesity epidemic wasn’t just about more food, but a different kind of food – processed food.
