Decades ago, when I was still studying biophysics at Cornell's Agriculture School, I reached out to Professor Gertrude Buehring about her landmark findings that a cancer-causing virus was infecting the U.S. meat and dairy supply. What could I do to help warn the public about the potential threat? To my surprise, she pleaded with me to keep quiet. She still had to prove people were being infected by the virus and she had yet to demonstrate a link to human cancers. If word got out prematurely, she was afraid the meat and dairy industries would threaten her funding and shut down her work. So I kept quiet... until now.

We now have evidence that as many as 37% of human breast cancer cases may be attributable to exposure to bovine leukemia virus. Coming up on NutritionFacts.org and available now in my new DVD are my three new videos on the shocking revelation:

  • Is Bovine Leukemia Virus in Milk Infectious?
  • The Role of Bovine Leukemia Virus in Breast Cancer
  • Industry Response to Bovine Leukemia Virus in Breast Cancer
I also have new videos queued on the paleo diet, resistant starch, and why vegans should consider taking DHA supplements. 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 32 (all proceeds go to charity). It can also be ordered as a physical DVD.

The current batch of videos from volume 31 are about to run out on NutritionFacts.org. So, starting next month and running until October, I'll roll out the videos from this new DVD, volume 32. The DVDs give folks the opportunity to sneak-preview videos months ahead of time, watch them all straight through, and share them as gifts. However, there is nothing on the DVDs that won't eventually end up free online at NutritionFacts.org. If you'd like the works--50+ hours of video--you can get the complete DVD collection.

Here's the full list of chapters from the new volume 32 DVD--a preview of what's to come over the next few months on NutritionFacts.org:

  1. How to Avoid the Obesity-Related Plastic Chemical BPA
  2. Maternal Diet May Affect Stress Responses in Children
  3. Why is Nutrition So Commercialized?
  4. Could Lactose Explain the Milk & Parkinson's Disease Link?
  5. Pomegranate vs. Placebo for Prostate Cancer
  6. Ginger for Nausea, Menstrual Cramps, and Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  7. Animal Protein Compared to Cigarette Smoking
  8. Increasing Protein Intake After Age 65
  9. Disclosing Conflicts of Interest in Medical Research
  10. Eliminating Conflicts of Interest in Medical Research
  11. Is Canned Fruit as Healthy?
  12. Paleo Diet Studies Show Benefits
  13. Iodine Supplements Before, During, and After Pregnancy
  14. Resistant Starch and Colon Cancer
  15. Getting Starch to Take the Path of Most Resistance
  16. How Did Doctors Not Know About the Risks of Hormone Therapy?

  18. Should Vegans Take DHA to Preserve Brain Function?
  19. Is Bovine Leukemia Virus in Milk Infectious?

Translating NutritionFacts.org Into Other Languages

unnamed (1).jpg

Due to the overwhelming international interest in my work, we've decided to translate the entire website into other languages. With more than a thousand videos to translate, this is a huge undertaking and I need your help. Not only do we need dozens of volunteer translators for each language, but we need Translations Team Leaders to help coordinate these efforts. Even if you don't speak other languages, if you are organized and have good interpersonal skills please consider applying to facilitate one of these translation projects so we can inspire as many people as possible to join the global evidence-based nutrition revolution! For other volunteer opportunities that arise, make sure to sign up for our volunteer newsletter.

2016 Annual Talk--Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the launch of my 2016 annual presentation! It will appear as the NutritionFacts.org video-of-the-day on Friday, August 5th. It is the U.S. version of my London presentation, a best-of compilation of my last four year-in-review talks. Please help spread it far and wide to those within your circles that you think may benefit.

Free HOW NOT TO DIE Excerpt

The publisher of How Not To Die has offered permission for me to circulate an excerpt from the book. Click here to download the Preface, in which I share the story of my grandmother, to whom the book is dedicated, and to whom my life's work is dedicated.

More Live Q&A with Dr. G

I had so much fun doing live Q&A's this month on Facebook and Twitter I've not only decided to make them monthly recurring events, but I've added a third on YouTube. So I'm going to be doing three live half-hour Q&A sessions on Thursday, August 25th 2016:

Facebook Live: At noon ET on 8/25 go to our Facebook page to watch live and ask questions.
Twitter Periscope: At 7pm ET on 8/25 go to our Twitter page to watch live and ask even more questions.
YouTube Live Stream: At 8pm ET on 8/25 go here to watch live and ask even more questions!

Hopefully between all three I'll get all your questions answered--at least until next month!

In health,
Michael Greger, M.D.
