Focusing on studies published just over the last 18 months in peer-reviewed scientific medical journals, Mark Greger MD offers practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse many of the top 15 killers in the United States.

He will extensively cover the latest research on heart disease and cancer as well as research on stroke, kidney & lung diseases.

Noted studies

  • The Pritikin studies in which blood was dripped onto cancer cells and the number of cancer cells killed was measured; the study suggests eating a healthy diet can increase the ability of the blood to fight cancer sevenfold.
  • The 35 year Harvard Nurses Study, which is the most extensive study relating lifestyle and diet to health and longevity to date.  Among other things, the study results comparethe negative impacts of smoking and egg consumption to the positive impacts of exercise, nut and oat consumption
  • Multiple studies that suggest inflammation of the artery walls associated with meat and dairy consumption is caused by toxins created by bacteria in animal products (the toxins do not break down when cooked).

The video presentation is 55 minutes.  After the showing there will be some time for discussion.
