nutritionfacts.org

One of my favorite cancer-specific charities, the American Institute for Cancer Research, lauds the China Study and the documentary Forks Over Knives, with which they share the same bottom-line message: The healthiest diets are those that revolve around whole plant foods. They then translate that advice into their Ten Recommendations for Cancer Prevention, featured in my video […]

58,000 Americans are diagnosed with kidney cancer every year, and 13,000 die. And the numbers have been rising. Approximately 4 percent of cases are hereditary, but what about the other 96 percent?

Dr. Greger Takes on Vitamin C for Cancer in New DVD

Vitamin C is no stranger to controversy. It took 40 years between when citrus fruits were shown to cure scurvy in the 1700’s and their widespread application. Is it possible we’re in the midst of a similar 40 year lag between vitamin C discovery and implementation? Research in the mid-70’s by Linus Pauling (considered the greatest […]

For example, our bodies make estrogen, which is correlated with an increased risk of breast cancer, out of cholesterol. We also package cholesterol into LDL, which, as you can see in my video Cholesterol […]

How Curry Can Kill Cancer Cells

Does Antioxidant Intake Matter for Cancer?
nutritionfacts.org

The USDA removed their online antioxidant database of foods, “concerned that ORAC values were routinely misused by food and dietary supplement manufacturing companies to promote their products.” Indeed, supplement manufacturers got into my-ORAC-is-bigger-than-your-ORAC contests, comparing their pills to the antioxidant superfood du jour, like blueberries.
