Dr. Michael Greger is one of my nutrition super heroes. He is a physician, author, and internationally recognized speaker on nutrition, food safety, and public health issues.
He is a founding member and Fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, and he currently serves as the public health director at the Humane Society of the United States.
Dr. Greger is also the founder of Nutritionfacts.org a strictly non-commercial, science-based public service website that provides free updates on the latest in nutrition research via bite-sized videos.
There are hundreds of videos on more than a thousand health topics, with new videos and articles uploaded every day. It is an amazing resource.
And as of last week, Dr. Greger is now a New York Times Best-Selling author, thanks to his latest book, How Not to Die, which is my favorite health & nutrition book of 2015.
It’s also worth mentioning that 100% of the proceeds he receives from his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements are donated to charity.
Dr. Greger is making a monumental impact on the health of millions of people around the world, by bringing evidence-based nutritional science to the masses. And as you will see, he is quite the character. This was a really fun one. Enjoy!
If you want to understand what the healthiest diet looks like, I highly recommend you read Dr. Greger’s book How Not to Die. The amount of evidence-baxsed nutritional science referenced in this book is astounding. There are over 2,000 studies cited.
