Dr. Greger Takes on Mediterranean Diet in New DVD

Volume 23

The Mediterranean Diet is an “in” topic nowadays, in both the medical literature and the lay media. More than 450 papers were published in the medical literature during just the last year alone, more than one a day. As a recent commentary noted “Uncritical laudatory coverage is the common parlance. Specifics are hard to come by: what is it? what is its history? why is it good? Merits are rarely detailed; possible downsides are never mentioned.” I answer these questions and more in a 6-part video series:

  • Why Was Heart Disease Rare in the Mediterranean?
  • The Mediterranean Diet or a Whole Food Plant-Based Diet?
  • PREDIMED: Does Eating Nuts Prevent Strokes?
  • Which Parts of the Mediterranean Diet Extended Life?
  • Do Flexitarians Live Longer?
  • Improving on the Mediterranean Diet

They are all available right now as a video download as part of my new Latest in Clinical Nutrition volume 23 (all proceeds go to this charity). It can also be ordered as a physical DVD. The Mediterranean videos are all scheduled to go up on NutritionFacts.org by mid-March, but you can download and watch them right now.

The current batch of videos from volume 22 on NutritionFacts.org just ran out, so starting next month and running through April, I’ll be rolling out the videos from this new DVD, volume 23. The DVDs give folks the opportunity to sneak-preview videos months ahead of time, watch them all straight through, and share them as gifts, but there is nothing on the DVDs that won’t eventually end up free online here at NutritionFacts.org. If you’d like the works–40+ hours of video–you can get the complete DVD collection.

Here’s the list of chapters from the new volume 23 DVD — a preview of what’s to come over the next few months on NutritionFacts.org:
