Help Me Keep NutritionFacts.org Thriving
Oxford Dictionaries has declared “post-truth” as its 2016 word of the year, noting it could become “one of the defining words of our time.” For those of us in the field of nutrition, the trumping of objective facts with blatant falsehoods is certainly nothing new, but with Cabinet appointments like the fast food magnate that brought the world the Monster Thickburger, I’m afraid that nutrition facts may be more important than ever. This is especially important now that life expectancy in the United States is in decline.
My new “Nutrition Facts with Dr. Greger” podcast
We have lots of exciting things planned for 2017. We are revamping the website, including a bunch of new features including “Crashcourses in Nutrition” to help deepen your knowledge. We may even be able to start offering continuing medical education credit for physicians. (After all, How Not to Die is now being used as a textbook at graduate public health and medical schools!). One new addition starts today, my new audio podcast.
We commissioned a 10-episode pilot podcast series to run over the next 10 weeks and the first episode is available now. Now you can learn life-saving tips while you run, cook, or commute. To check out the trailer and subscribe (for free, of course, like everything else on NutritionFacts.org) go to our new podcast page. If folks find them useful I’ll make them a regular weekly feature. The podcast is being produced by Joseph Ram of Issues and Advocacy, LLC and Kerry Thompson of Thompson House Productions.
Happiest of holidays and a wonderful, healthful, fact-filled new year.
Michael Greger, M.D.
