Last Day to Register for Our Free Webinar
With death rates as much as six times higher in Black America than white America, COVID-19 pointed a glaring spotlight at racial health disparities in the United States. In my upcoming hour-long live webinar, I’ll address the question of why Black Americans have been living sicker and dying younger than their white counterparts way before the pandemic started. Even with the same education and socioeconomic resources, Black Americans suffer disproportionately from chronic disease. What role may dietary patterns be playing, and what happens when you feed people soul food that’s good for the soul and put plant-based diets to the test? More information and registration can be found here. UPDATE: Registration is now closed.

Is there a unisex chart to see what your optimal weight might be based on your height?
Dr. Greger whips up some matcha ice cream inspired by a recipe in his How Not to Die Cookbook.
Volunteer Spotlight: Viviana Garcia
Reading How Not to Die back in 2016 had a great impact on me, so I adopted a WFPB diet and joined NutritionFacts as a volunteer translator. It is an honor to contribute so that science-based information on nutrition is available to people in Spanish-speaking countries. Our healthier choices have a positive effect on our families, on public health worldwide, and on the health of our planet, so I appreciate this opportunity to collaborate with a great team.
My favorite recipe: Golden quinoa tabouli from Dr. Greger’s How Not to Die Cookbook, as I love chickpeas and turmeric!
