The obesity epidemic exploded throughout the industrialized world in the late 1970s. What happened? Any potential driver would have had to be global in nature and coincide with the upswing of the epidemic. So how do the various theories stack up?
Live Webinars with Dr. Greger
This is the third 3-hour webinar Dr. Greger offered on all the latest and greatest research on fasting. The first webinar covered intermittent fasting, time-restricted feeding, and water-only fasting for weight loss. The second webinar covered fasting for high blood pressure, rheumatoid arthritis, and other autoimmune diseases, depression, irritable bowel disease, diabetes, and more. In this final webinar, Dr. Greger focused on fasting cancer as both an adjunct to chemotherapy and as a potential treatment in and of itself.
In a previous webinar, Dr. Greger covered intermittent fasting and time-restricted eating along with the safety and efficacy of water-only fasting for weight loss, but what about the use of fasting for the reversal of disease?
One of the most common questions we receive is about intermittent fasting, so Dr. Greger did a deep dive into the research. He covered the pros and cons of calorie restriction and water-only fasting for weight loss, alternate-day fasting, body fat, longevity and metabolic health, the 5:2 diet, fasting-mimicking diets, and time-restricted feeding – and hosted a Q&A at the end. The focus for this webinar was on weight control. The next fasting webinar covered water-only and Buchinger modified fasting for other conditions such as blood pressure, autoimmune disease, and cancer.
In Dr. Greger’s nutrition work, he’s used to sifting through mountains of data in the context of massive conflicts of corrupting commercial interests and so he thought he’d apply those skills to other important health issues. The use of cannabis, both edible and smokable, is one that we’ve gotten lots of questions about. Like in the field of nutrition, there’s gobs of internet misinformation floating around on all sides of the various debates, and so here’s your chance to cut through the haze and see what the science actually says.
Download these webinars from 2017 where Dr. Greger shares all the tips he’s learned over the years on how to gain access to and search medical databases, (legally) circumvent article paywalls, and stay on top of the research. He also runs through sample search strategies for different nutrition topics.
