Nutrition


It took more than 7,000 studies and the deaths of countless smokers before the Surgeon Generals report on tobacco was released in the 1960s. How many people are suffering needlessly from preventable dietary diseases today? to Dr. Gregers nutrition at and get a excerpt from his latest NYT Bestseller HOW NOT TO DIE. (All proceeds Dr. Greger receives from the of his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements go to support the 501c3 nonprofit that runs NutritionFacts.org.)

Not that there arent randomized controlled studies showing the extraordinary power of plant-based diets to prevent, treat, and even reverse disease, not the least of which is Dr. Ornishs landmark Lifestyle Heart Trial, which is what did it for me 25 years ago. Thats the one I started my annual talk last year with: From Table to Able: Combating Disabling Diseases with Food
If you liked this video, youll really like this one: Evidence-Based Medicine or Evidence-Biased? the video in which I review the evidence surrounding treating multiple sclerosis with nutrition: Treating Multiple Sclerosis with the Swank MS Diet are more parallels one can draw between the Big Tobacco and Big Food. See Big Food Using the Tobacco Industry Playbook and at least the final 20 minutes of Food as Medicine
