Would you like to invest less than an hour and learn to eat so you and your loved ones could lessen your risk of dying from 15 of the 16 top killers in the world? Diseases including heart disease, cancer, lung diseases, Alzheimer’s disease, liver disease and cirrhosis, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, hypertension and seven more.
Dr. Michael Greger produces and releases a new mini video on nutritional topics (based on his scouring of recent nutritional studies) every weekday through his organization, Nutrition Facts (nutritionfacts.org).
This video is his effort to tie together the knowledge in all his videos released through 2012 – 2013 with the goal of equipping people with the knowledge to avoid 15 of the top 16 causes of death in the world.
He has released videos on over 1,700 topics to date and this was his most popular one for 2012 – 2013 (over 863,000 views to date).
It’s longer than most of his other mini videos (over 55 minutes) but if you’re interested in learning how you or your loved ones can eat to avoid 15 of the top 16 causes of death in the world (cancer is number 2) it’s fascinating viewing and will go fast for most people. Lots of moving graphics to jazz things up and some occasional humour thrown in to make the knowledge go down easier.
NOTE: I’m not a vegan or vegetarian and am not trying to promote such diets. (Although we have cut out use of red meats and pork.) But I believe that knowing the science behind the diets that best prevent cancer or fight existing cancer helps us to make better choices and reduce our risk and strengthen our bodies to better fight cancer and recover from conventional cancer treatments (chemo, radiation and surgery).
