I’m so excited and honored to become a more active member of the Care2 community. I’m a physician, author, and researcher specializing in nutrition, food safety, and public health issues. One of my small contributions to the world (I also work at the Humane Society of the United States) is the creation of NutritionFacts.org, the first nonprofit, non-commercial, science-based website to provide free daily video updates on the latest in nutrition research. It has hundreds of videos on more than a thousand topics, and I upload a new video every day!
Every Wednesday and Friday here at Care2 Healthy Living I’ll post one of my videos from NutritionFacts.org and very much welcome your feedback, and will try to answer any ask-the-doctor type questions anyone may have. Given the release this month of the American Cancer Society’s new dietary guidelines calling for an “emphasis on plant foods,” I thought for today’s video pick (featured below) I’d feature a video that offers insight into which plant foods may be best. It covers a landmark study that pitted 34 common vegetables against 8 different lines of human cancer cells. Make sure to also check out the “prequel” video Veggies vs. Cancer featured above.
I am indebted to The Jesse & Julie Rasch Foundation for their kind support in helping me launch NutritionFacts.org to further their mission of educating the public on the pivotal role nutrition can play in disease prevention.
I hope everyone’s having a happy healthy new year!
Michael Greger, M.D.
