I was recently honored to be invited to Google to present on How Not to Die, and they made it into an official Talk@Google! View the presentation I've been giving around the country on my book tour for free at bit.ly/googlegreger. It's basically a 2016 updated version of my Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death talk.

It's been such a pleasure and privilege to meet so many people whose lives my work has touched over the last few months touring around the country. With my speaking tour winding down (only about 50 cities left--phew!), I'm eager to catch up on all the research I've missed. I just completed the next nine weeks of NutritionFacts.org videos, available now in sneak preview form as part of my new DVD, in which I do a deep dive into the subject of vinegar.

Vinegar has been used as a weight-loss aid and folk remedy for diabetes for centuries, but does it actually work? Find out in my new 5-video series:

  • Does Apple Cider Vinegar Help with Weight Loss?
  • Vinegar and Artery Function
  • Can Vinegar Help with Blood Sugar Control?
  • Optimal Vinegar Dose
  • Vinegar Mechanisms and Side Effects

*Spoiler alert*: Let's just say I now try to sneak vinegar into all my family's meals.

I also have new videos queued up over the next few months on wheatgrass juice, Paleo diet bone broth, and protein combining. If you don't want to wait, all of these videos are available now as a digital download as part of my new Latest in Clinical Nutrition volume 30 (all proceeds go to charity). It can also be ordered as a physical DVD.

The current batch of videos from volume 29 are about to run out on NutritionFacts.org. So, starting next month and running until June, I'll roll out the videos from this new DVD, volume 30. 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--50+ hours of video--you can get the complete DVD collection.

Here's the list of chapters from the new volume 30 DVD--a preview of what's to come over the next few months on NutritionFacts.org:

  1. Specific Receptors for Specific Fruits and Vegetables
  2. Should Pregnant and Breastfeeding Women Take DHA?
  3. Should Vegan Women Supplement with DHA During Pregnancy?

  5. Peppers and Parkinson's: The Benefits of Smoking Without the Risks?

DVD Subscription

If you were a regular supporter, you'd already be a vinegar expert by now, having already received the new DVD. I come out with new DVDs every 9 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 $15 monthly contributor will receive the next three DVDs for free (as physical DVDs, downloads, or both--your choice), and anyone signing up as a $25 monthly contributor will get a whole year's worth of new DVDs. If you're already signed up and didn't receive your volume 30 yet, please email DVDhelp@NutritionFacts.org and we'll make everything all better.

If you'd rather just watch all the videos online as they launch, but would still like to support my work of helping to educate millions about healthy eating, you can make a tax-deductible donation to my 501c3 nonprofit organization NutritionFacts.org using a credit card, Bitcoin, a direct PayPal link, or by sending a check to "NutritionFacts.org" PO Box 11400, Takoma Park, MD 20913.

New Volunteer Positions

After spending much of the last few months on the road since the publication of How Not to Die (already in it's 8th printing!), I've got a lot of catching up to do. More than 12,000 articles have been published in the scientific literature on nutrition in the last four months.

If you are a university student or faculty member or work at a hospital that grants online access to academic journals, please consider joining our Article Retrieval Team (see details and application). I would send you a list of articles I need, and you would try to locate, download, and file them for me (as part of Fair Use nonprofit research, not public distribution). If that sounds like something you could help with, please apply today!

Calling All Open Sourcerers

githubIf you are an app developer or designer, you can contribute to NutritionFacts.org's free Daily Dozen app for Android and iPhone, now an open-source project on Github -- meaning anyone, including you, can play a part in its future development. Check out the latest details here on how to get started, links to our Github repositories, Contribution Guidelines, and more!

If none of that last paragraph made any sense to you, don't worry--there are still ways you can help! Keep an eye on our ever-changing volunteer, internship, and employment pages.

In health,
Michael Greger, M.D.
