When a Man Loves an Antioxidant!

Michael Greger, MD, has done it again – compiled the past year of nutrition research into one interesting and entertaining DVD, Latest in Clinical Nutrition: Volume 5 (available at DrGreger.Org).

Of course, Dr. Greger updates us on the latest info on the antioxidant levels in foods (the biggest study ever was published this past year).

Another sneak peak is that pork tapeworms have been found in the brains of some people who develop adult-onset seizures. Unfortunately, you don’t have to be the one to eat the pigs they come from to acquire them, though one would hope being vegetarian would cut the odds.

At the end of the video, Dr. Greger has a section about his Grandmother. About 30 years ago, doctors told her that nothing more could be done for her heart disease and that her prognosis was dire. She decided to give the Pritikin Institute a try and ended up living for 28 more years.

You can also check out Dr. Greger’s exciting new website, NutritionFacts.org. It is still being beta tested and won’t officially launch until later in the month. Once officially launched, it will have daily video uploads, a blog, and more. Clips from his past DVDs are available there for free!
