Dr. Greger has scoured the world’s scholarly anti-aging literature and developed this new presentation to deliver the good news that we have tremendous power over our longevity and health destiny. He will cover natural ways to slow the aging process, the diets and lifestyles of healthiest, longest-living populations, ways to preserve brain, bowel, and bladder function as we age, as well as tips to combat skin aging and menopausal symptoms.
Live Webinars with Dr. Greger
Up to 90 percent of visible facial aging is due to sun exposure. Randomized controlled trials have put the daily application of sunscreen to the test for both slowing skin aging and preventing skin cancer. In this one-hour live webinar, Dr. Greger will go over the pros and cons of regular use of sunscreen, detail the best way to apply it, and discuss how to choose the safest brands, of particular importance given recent findings that the absorption of sunscreen chemicals into the bloodstream is greater than previously thought.
Age-related hearing loss is not inevitable. What can we learn from cultures who retain their hearing into old age? In this one-hour live webinar, Dr. Greger will cover the lifestyle factors that put your hearing at risk and the diet and supplements that have been put to the test to prevent and even reverse hearing loss.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. As we age, our synthesis of collagen decreases by about 1 percent a year, which may contribute to the development of wrinkles. In this hour-long live webinar, I’ll address whether collagen supplements may help with skin aging, as well as with arthritis, and how we can maintain and boost our own body’s synthesis of collagen with diet.
Nearly one in five adults in the world may have osteoporosis, but the good news is that only about 30 percent of osteoporotic bone fracture risk is genetic. In this live two-hour webinar, I’ll cover bone mineral density screening, common over-the-counter drugs like acid blockers that may increase fracture risk, how safe and effective the current oral and injected osteoporosis medications are, which foods may help protect our bones, the best type and frequency of exercise, and how to reduce fall risk. Please join me at 2pm ET on May 12.
A medical consensus of public health authorities around the world has considered water fluoridation at appropriate levels as a safe and effective means to prevent cavities on a community-wide scale. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention deemed the fluoridation of drinking water as one of the top ten public health achievements of the 20th century. There is little question that supplemental ﬂuoride strengthens teeth and reduces decay, but at what cost?
In the last few years, there have been growing concerns about the adverse effects of fluoride on brain development. Given the National Toxicology Program’s draft conclusion that fluoride should now be presumed to be a cognitive neurodevelopmental hazard, a dispassionate and tempered discussion of fluoride’s potential neurotoxicity is warranted.
Ironically, it was the anti-fluoridationists who were accused of their “anti-scientific” attitudes, but now it’s the pro-fluoridationists who may be ignoring evidence that doesn’t conform to their beliefs. I hope you’ll join me at 2pm ET on Friday, February 24, for a live one-hour webinar, where I’ll discuss these issues, address fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash, and answer your questions.
Vitamin K supplements are touted for bone, brain, and heart health, but have they been shown to help? To complicate matters, there are multiple types: Vitamin K1 is concentrated in greens, and a type of vitamin K2 is found in animal products. Do we need both? Do we have to rely on a healthy microbiome for conversion? Do we have to eat a slimy, fermented food called natto? What is natto anyway? Join me for a 60-minute live webinar on October 7 at 2pm ET to learn everything you ever wanted to know about vitamin K.
Yoga is practiced by millions of Americans and often recommended as therapy for a variety of medical conditions. Are there benefits beyond just the exercise component? Yoga has been put to the test for multiple sclerosis, back pain, neck pain, insomnia, breast cancer, depression, anxiety, urinary incontinence, headaches, diabetes, osteoarthritis, irritable bowel, inflammatory bowel, hot flashes, and osteoporosis. Did it work, and, if so, which of the more than 50 styles of yoga worked best? Is it safe for everyone? Are there certain poses that should be avoided? These are some of the issues I will cover in this 1.5-hour live webinar on September 9 at 2pm ET. I hope you’ll join me!
Industrial sweeteners have evolved over the decades. Sugar and high fructose corn syrup were the first. The second generation was those artificial sweeteners in pastel packets. We were soon introduced to the third generation, sugar alcohols like erythritol, and now have the fourth, sugars like allulose. I’ve talked about the concerns surrounding both artificial sweeteners and natural sweeteners, such as stevia and monkfruit, but I’ve generally given erythritol a pass. In this one-hour webinar, I’ll discuss the latest research on the health and safety of erythritol, as well as a new sweetener on the block: allulose.
At this very moment, approximately 30 percent of the U.S. population suffers regularly from bad breath. For those who may be thinking, “Phew! I’m glad I’m not one of them!,” the reality is that most people who are affected can’t actually smell the odor coming out of their own mouths.
Ninety percent of cases of bad breath are due to the putrefaction of debris on the tongue, which creates volatile sulfur compounds, such as the gas hydrogen sulfide known for smelling like rotten eggs. In a live, 90-minute webinar, I’ll talk about all of the dietary changes we can make to sweeten our breath, as well as take a deep dive into tongue scraping and brushing. I’ll also discuss the effect disrupting our mouth microbiome has on our heart health and explore the concern that tongue scraping could be carcinogenic.
