A Video a Day Keeps the Doctor Away . . .

I've stated before in this space that I am a big fan of Dr. Michael Greger, M.D., one of the leading plant-based docs in the world. For the last four years he has issued an annual DVD containing his summaries of the previous year's best nutritional research. He scans thousands of articles each year to locate the research that most of us would never come across.

On his new web site,, he is making the videos available for viewing at no cost. (He previously donated all the revenue from the sale of the DVDs to charity.) Each video summarizes a certain piece of research. They are brief, usually humorous, very easy to understand, and graphically interesting. This is a terrific web site—one could do worse than viewing a video a day in pursuit of good health.

Here's the introductory video (available in HD) about Dr. Greger and his mission:
