Dr. Greger on Alcohol

I recently took the stage at TEDxSedona to talk about Food as Medicine. Watch it here.  And if you missed my appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan, you can still check it out here. 



New DVD covers acne, aloe, and alcohol 

My new DVD is out today and is available as a streaming video so you can start watching it immediately. I’m really excited about this one. Lots of good juicy practical bits—like How to Access Research Articles for Free—on a huge variety of topics including new research on cocoa powder and alcohol that have changed my clinical practice recommendations. All of these videos will eventually be available for free online over the next few months, but if you don’t want to wait, you can watch them all streaming right now. You can also order it as a physical DVD on DrGreger.org or on Amazon.

One Day to Wellness

Meet fitness industry icons Bruce and Mindy Mylrea. They are channeling all their energy, time, and talent into a new nonprofit organization they formed called One Day to Wellness to spread the good news that the vast majority of premature death and disability is preventable with a healthy diet and lifestyle. I’m taking most of this year off from traveling to write my next book, but they are launching a nationwide 100-city tour. Check out their schedule to see when they will be near you at http://onedaytowellness.org.
