My New DVD Starts Streaming Today

37cover_mg-e1498614870659.jpg

My new DVD is out today and is available as a streaming video so you can start watching it immediately. In this new volume, I have videos on treating metastatic cancer with diet, coconut oil and candida; but, the focus is on arsenic in rice: which brands and types of rice are the safest, what's the best way to cook it to reduce arsenic exposure, and questioning whether the benefits of even whole grain brown rice outweigh the risks. 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. You can also order it as a physical DVD.

Here's the full list of chapters from the new volume--a preview of what's to come over the next few months here on NutritionFacts.org:

  1. The Antioxidant Effects of Acai vs. Apples
  2. The Benefits of Acai vs. Blueberries for Artery Function
  3. Where Does the Arsenic in Chicken Come From?
  4. Where Does the Arsenic in Rice, Mushrooms, and Wine Come From?
  5. The Effects of Too Much Arsenic in the Diet
  6. Cancer Risk from Arsenic in Rice and Seaweed
  7. Which Rice Has Less Arsenic: Black, Brown, Red, White or Wild?
  8. Which Brands and Sources of Rice Have the Least Arsenic?
  9. How to Cook Rice to Lower Arsenic Levels
  10. Arsenic in Infant Rice Cereal
  11. Arsenic in Rice Milk, Rice Krispies, and Brown Rice Syrup
  12. How Risky is the Arsenic in Rice?
  13. How Much Arsenic in Rice is Too Much?
  14. Is White Rice a Yellow Light or Red Light Food?
  15. Do the Pros of Brown Rice Outweigh the Cons of Arsenic?
  16. Saffron for Erectile Dysfunction
  17. Coconut Oil and the Boost in HDL "Good" Cholesterol
  18. What About Coconuts, Coconut Milk, and Coconut Oil MCTs?
  19. Treating Advanced Prostate Cancer with Diet: Part 1
  20. Treating Advanced Prostate Cancer with Diet: Part 2
  21. Lead Contamination in Hot Sauces
  22. Does Nutritional Yeast Trigger Crohn's Disease?
  23. Is Candida Syndrome Real?
  24. Is Nutritional Yeast Healthy for Everyone?
  25. Dietary Cure for Hidradenitis Suppurativa

Follow-up Researcher Training, Upcoming CME, and The Big Fat Truth



Bulgarian_HNTD.jpeg

Reaching More People Than Ever Before

A long time dream of mine is finally coming true!

NutritionFacts.org will be partnering with the American College of Lifestyle Medicine to offer online courses for Continuing Medical Education credits. To maintain an active license, most medical professionals are required to stay on top of new developments by getting a certain number of hours of CME every year. And soon they'll be able to fulfill part of that requirement by learning the latest in evidence-based nutrition! We're working on the first course right now. but if your license is expiring and you can't wait, the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine offers some wonderful (and free!) CME at NutritionCME.org

Follow-Up Research Training

One of the first CME courses we'll be offering will be based on the research training webinar I hosted in early May. It was a huge success and I'm excited to announce that a 2-hour follow-up training will take place on Saturday, June 17th at 2pm ET. Go to NutritionFacts.org/webinar for more information and to register.

Basically, I'm just going to be putting into practice all the stuff we learned in last month's webinar to run practice searches on topics of your choosing. Submit your suggestions and vote on ideas proposed by others here.

If you missed the 4-hour May 6th training, a recording is available along with the slides and notes.

Our Growing Global Reach

It's been a whirlwind 18 months since How Not to Die was first released, and thanks to all of you, we're still in the top 100 on Amazon's best seller's list with 1,000+ five star reviews. The book is reaching audiences across the globe and has already been translated into 16 different languages including Serbian, Swedish, French and Bulgarian, with many more on the way!

I also want to remind everyone that we have more than 3,000 videos translated, covering 43 languages. For help accessing the translations, we have instructions here. To figure out what videos are in which language do a blank search on NutritionFacts.org and then choose your Video Translation Language.

Mandarin Translators Wanted

The latest official dietary guidelines in China call for cutting meat consumption in half in addition to restricting junk food, eggs, and dairy. Just in the last few months, we've gotten more than 100,000 new Chinese subscribers, and so it looks like the public might be taking the new recommendations to heart! We are working to share more of our videos on the popular video platforms Miaopai and Youku. Please consider applying here if you are fluent and able to translate in (Simplified) Mandarin.

Coming Soon: The Big Fat Truth

J.D. Roth, best known for his show The Biggest Loser, has created a new TV series called The Big Fat Truth. The series focuses on addressing the root causes of obesity, and how our diet can play a role in improving our overall health. I was honored to be featured as a guest on the show. The episodes that I'm in premiere June 18th and July 16th. For more info on the show and where to watch it, go here.

And if you haven't watched it yet, check out my appearance on the new show Prescription: Nutrition. You can watch the first episode here.

This month I'm also taping my first PBS TV special based on How Not to Die. It will start airing this Fall--I can't wait!

Help Spread the Word

Ever been in a situation where the subject of diet or disease came up and you wish there were a quick and easy way to help them cut through all the nonsense out there? You can help spread the message of dietary sanity with our outreach cards. Share them with friends, colleagues, patients, or anyone else you think could benefit from life-saving nutritional science. They are available at cost here.

Live Q&A

Every month I do Q&As live from my treadmill and this month, Thursday, June 29th is the day:

Facebook Live: At 2pm ET go to our Facebook page to watch live and ask questions.

YouTube Live Stream: At 1:30pm ET go here to watch live and ask even more questions!

Have a super summer (or wonderful winter to all our southern hemispherians!).

NutritionFacts.org Is Proud to Help Launch a New Organization: Balanced

36cover-e1493307002344.jpg

New DVD, New Organization & Last Chance to Register for Research Training

All the evidence in the world is worthless, unless it can be translated into action. I can research until I'm blue in the face (like the time I didn't screw the blender tight and my blueberry smoothie went WHOOSH), but if there aren't tools for people to put it into practice, lives will continue to be unnecessarily lost. It's not enough to just make the science available.

When I was a medical student I wished there was a resource like NutritionFacts.org. Commercialism has had such a corrupting influence on nutrition research it was hard to know what to believe. And who had the time to personally dig through the thousands of studies? There was desperate need for a science-based source to cut through all the confusion. And because it didn't exist, I knew I'd just have to create it myself, and the rest is history. I feel the same way about Balanced.

The second half of How Not to Die was one attempt to try to break down the research into actionable steps. I'm excited to announce that the free Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen iPhone app should soon be updated with all the same bells and whistles as the Android app. So that's another small tool. But we don't have the luxury of changing lives one individual at a time. People are dying now. We need institutional change. The hospitals need to change what they're serving, schools need to change what they're serving, restaurants need to change what they're serving. But there was no organization out there systematically affecting evidence-based nutrition on an institutional level... until now!

One of the most common questions I hear from supporters is some variation of "OK, but what are you going to do about it?" I come out with some new video making a compelling case that large swaths of death and disability are preventable, or easily treatable, and they're like quick, we have to do something! Meanwhile, I'm at the medical library buried under a mountain of papers working on the next video. To pivot from research to outreach would require a whole new staff, a whole new mission. I realized it would need a whole new organization. And if it didn't exist, I knew we'd just have to help create it ourselves.

So I'm so proud to announce that NutritionFacts.org has been instrumental in launching Balanced, a new nonprofit organization, run by an amazing educator, Audrey Sanchez. They have my full support. Please check them out at Balanced.org, join their mailing list, follow them on Facebook and on Twitter, support them directly, and strap yourself in for the evidence-based nutrition revolution!

New DVD

My new DVD came out today and is available as streaming video so you can start watching it immediately. In this new volume, I have videos on practical tips on treating conditions such as acne and toe fungus, to prostate cancer and infertility. The bulk of the videos focus on preventing and treating lead poisoning, a deep dive into the topic inspired by the tragedy in Flint Michigan.

The current batch of videos from the previous volume is about to run out on NutritionFacts.org. So, starting next month and running through July, I'll roll out this new set. They will all eventually be available for free online, but if you don't want to wait you can watch them all streaming right now. You can also order it as a physical DVD.

Here's the full list of chapters from the new volume--a preview of what's to come over the next few months on NutritionFacts.org:

  1. Best Supplements for Prostate Cancer
  2. How the Lead Paint Industry Got Away with It
  3. Lead in Drinking Water
  4. How the Leaded Gas Industry Got Away with It
  5. "Normal" Blood Lead Levels Can Be Toxic
  6. The Effects of Low-Level Lead Exposure in Adults
  7. How to Lower Lead Levels with Diet: Thiamine, Fiber, Iron, Fat, Fasting?
  8. How to Lower Lead Levels with Diet: Breakfast, Whole Grains, Milk, Tofu?
  9. Best Foods for Lead Poisoning: Chlorella, Cilantro, Tomatoes, Moringa?
  10. Best Food for Lead Poisoning: Garlic
  11. Can Vitamin C Help with Lead Poisoning?
  12. Yellow Bell Peppers for Male Infertility and Lead Poisoning?
  13. The Role of Burger Viruses in Cancer
  14. Microbiome: We Are What They Eat
  15. Best Aromatherapy Herb for Alzheimer's
  16. Natural Treatment for Acne and Fungal Infections
  17. Controversy Over the Trans Fat Ban
  18. Banning Trans Fat in Processed Foods but Not Animal Fat
  19. Best Food for Antidepressant-induced Sexual Dysfunction
  20. The Food Industry Wants the Public Confused about Nutrition
  21. What Does a Low White Blood Cell Count Mean?
  22. What Is the Ideal White Blood Cell Count?
  23. The Best Supplement for Fibromyalgia
  24. Fermented or Unfermented Soy Foods for Prostate Cancer Prevention?
  25. The Role of Soy Foods in Prostate Cancer Prevention

NutritionFacts.org Gets a Makeover

New-Site-Blog-Photo.jpeg

New Features With More on the Way

Notice anything different? NutritionFacts.org just got a major redesign! The site was looking SO 2014, but the main reason we wanted to shake things up is to make the homepage more newbie-friendly.

Previously, the new video-of-the-day was featured front and center, which is great for those who already have a good understanding of the basics and just want the latest, but not ideal for those who just stumble onto the site. We get a ton of traffic from people doing Google searches for health and nutrition topics, but they may happen upon the site on a day we're featuring the role of some obscure spice in treating some obscure cancer (Benefits of Turmeric Curcumin for Inflammatory Orbital Pseudotumor anyone?). This results in a high "bounce rate," the proportion of people who come to the site, but then leave without clicking on anything or watching a single video.

Oh, that kills me.

They were SO close to getting life-saving information that could have helped them and their families. I'm still going to be posting new videos and articles every day; the home page has just been rearranged to feature some of the more introductory material for those new to the site.

We also wanted to add a bunch of improvements for die-hard fans (I'm looking at you!). So now there's a new Favorites feature. You're now able to add videos, blogs, and podcasts to your personal collection to view from your account. Let us know what you think and what other features you'd like to see.

The audio podcasts have also been redesigned, making it easier for new listeners to tune in right on the site, or subscribe using their favorite program or app, from every page. We're also improving our existing comment system to be more user-friendly and will continually add new functionality to make it easy to participate in conversations around the site. And we're going to be updating our search functionality with find-as-you-type autocomplete and improved filters--we're going to need it as the thousands of videos continue to pile up!

The next big leaps will be adding a Spanish-language option for the entire site and introducing my Crashcourses in Nutrition, self-directed study modules where you can learn about specific topics and test your knowledge (and maybe even compete for prizes!). Stay tuned for more...

Video Podcast Update

We've had to move our original video podcast over to a new URL, so if you enjoy listening to the videos in podcast format, resubscribe here.

This is separate from our new audio podcast, which you can subscribe to here.

The Research Training is a GO!

There was overwhelming interest expressed in signing up for the "How to Research a Health or Nutrition Topic" live online training I had suggested last month, and so we're on. Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 6th from 1pm ET to 5pm ET and register here.

I'll share all the tips I've 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. Mostly I'll just be running through sample search strategies for whichever foods or disease conditions the training participants (you!) are interested in. If four hours of that sounds like your idea of fun, sign up here.

I hope everyone likes the new look!

In health,
Michael Greger, M.D.

New DVD, "Platinum," and Research Training

admin-ajax.jpeg

My new DVD came out last week and is available as streaming video so you can start watching it immediately. In this new volume, I have videos on practical tips to improve brain function, cramps, and asthma; not to mention a video entitled Best Foods to Improve Sexual Function. I cover avocados, red wine, flax versus chia, and the breast cancer risk associated with applying aluminum-containing antiperspirants to shaved underarms.

The current batch of videos from the previous volume is about to run out on NutritionFacts.org. So, starting next week and running through May, I'll roll out this new set. They will all eventually be available for free online, but if you don't want to wait you can watch them all streaming right now. You can also order it as a physical DVD.

Here's the full list of chapters from the new volume--a preview of what's to come over the next few months on NutritionFacts.org:

  1. Don't Wait Until Your Doctor Kicks the Habit
  2. Benefits of Ginger for Menstrual Cramps
  3. Which Intestines for Food and Cosmetics?
  4. Should Vitamin D Supplements Be Taken to Prevent Falls in the Elderly?
  5. Benefits of Green Tea for Boosting Antiviral Immune Function
  6. Dangers of Dietary Supplement Deregulation
  7. How to Become a Fecal Transplant Super Donor
  8. Benefits of Rosemary for Brain Function
  9. How to Treat Asthma with a Low Salt Diet
  10. Sodium and Autoimmune Disease: Rubbing Salt in the Wound?
  11. Do Men Who Have More Sex Live Longer?
  12. Best Foods to Improve Sexual Function
  13. Which Are Better: Chia Seeds or Flax Seeds?
  14. How to Boost Your Immune System with Wakame Seaweed
  15. Are the BPA-Free Alternatives Safe?
  16. Higher Blood Pressure May Lead to Brain Shrinkage
  17. How to Block Breast Cancer's Estrogen-Producing Enzymes
  18. How to Prevent Blood Sugar and Triglyceride Spikes after Meals
  19. The Effects of Avocados and Red Wine on Postprandial Inflammation
  20. How to Counter the Effects of Air Pollution
  21. Is It Better to Advise More Plants or Less Junk?
  22. How Much Should You Exercise?
  23. Antiperspirants and Breast Cancer
  24. Treating Bacterial Vaginosis with Vaginal Vitamin C
  25. Lowering Our Sodium to Potassium Ratio to Reduce Stroke Risk
  26. How Our Gut Bacteria Can Use Eggs to Accelerate Cancer

Order my new DVD at DrGreger.org/collections/dvds, as a video download/streaming at DrGreger.org/collections/downloads, or through Amazon. All proceeds go to keeping the site going and growing.

DVD Subscription

If you were a regular supporter, you'd already know all this, having already received a link to the new DVD. New DVDs are released every nine weeks. If you'd like to automatically receive them before they're even available to the public, please consider becoming a monthly donor.

Anyone signing up on the donation page to become a $25 monthly contributor will receive the next three downloads for free, and anyone signing up as a $50 monthly contributor will get a whole year's worth of new DVDs (as physical DVDs, downloads, streaming, or all three--your choice). If you signed up for physical copies, you should have already received this volume, but if not please email [email protected] and we'll make everything all better.

We are a GuideStar Platinum Charity

NutritionFacts.org has been granted GuideStar's highest tier for nonprofit charities, honoring our deep commitment to transparency and accountability. However, they don't measure efficacy--how much good each group is actually doing in the world. For NutritionFacts.org you never have to wonder, because you can see what we do every day, bringing you and your loved ones (and hundreds of thousands of others!) actionable, evidence-based information.

Online Research Training?

As part of good governance, every organization should have a set of contingency plans. What would happen, for example, if I died in a fiery plane crash? (Or even a non-fiery one! :) NutritionFacts.org is saving too many lives to simply close up shop. In my Behind the Scenes video, I explain with a broad brush how I do my research, but what about the nitty gritty? I figure if I'm going to lay it all out, step-by-step, soup to nuts, I might as well do it live as part of a webinar. So, if you want to start your own NutritionFacts.org-type site, acquire or improve online medical research skills, or are just curious how I do what I do, please fill out this form so I can gauge interest. If enough folks are interested I'll make it happen!

NutritionFacts.org en Español Coming Soon!

But we need your help. We are seeking groups of volunteers fluent in Spanish to help in two different areas. Tech support volunteers would help respond to e-mails and fix errors on the Spanish site. This can be a great learning experience for those interested in gaining experience with IT support in the non-profit sector. Email our Volunteer Director at [email protected] to apply.

Separately, we are also hoping to find Spanish-speaking doctors, dietitians, or other health or nutrition professionals to help answer questions for users on Nutritionfacts.org en Español and on our Spanish social media sites during a two-hour weekly shift. Please email [email protected] if you're interested. Gracias!

In health,
Michael Greger, M.D. FACLM

PS: remember I have a new audio podcast to keep you company at http://nutritionfacts.org/audio.
