Description

It took more than 7,000 studies and the deaths of countless smokers before the Surgeon General's report on tobacco was released in the 1960s. How many people are suffering needlessly from preventable dietary diseases today? What are the most important nutrition issues we should turn our attention to today, and why are we so confused about the research surrounding them? Dr. Greger will sort through critical evidence and underscore the trip wires in his hallmark get-to-the-point style.

    Dr. Greger knows his stuff and although he ran out of time to cover everything he wanted to, it was still packed with great information. Well researched and supported with data. I will be telling anyone who listens about the benefits of this way of eating!

    Great presentation, he had the science to back up his recommendations for a plant-based diet.
