Dr. Greger on Monk Fruit, Tea Tree Oil, and Organic Meat

We’ve had a blast watching so many people take the Daily Dozen Challenge. Last month, I challenged a few of my friends—and all of you!—to pick a day and try to nail the Daily Dozen. See how they did:

And check out a bunch of the videos people have done so far over on our YouTube playlist. Join the hundreds of people taking the challenge and eating all of the healthiest foods I recommend based on years of research. To get in on the fun, download the free updated Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen app, and head to NutritionFacts.org/daily-dozen-challenge to learn more. 


New DVD covers chia seeds, coconut water, brewer’s yeast, and more

My new DVD is out today and is available as a streaming video so you can start watching it immediately. As you can see I’ve started at the beginning of the alphabet again in my research cycle, so acne, aloe, apples, beans, and berries are first up. If your favorite vegetable is zucchini I’m afraid it’s going to be awhile, but I’ll get there! All of these videos will eventually be available for free online over the next few months, but if you don’t want to wait, you can watch them all streaming right now
