Thank you for your incredible support!
We blew the top off of our donation drive carrot in less than a week! Thank you for your flood of encouragement. It's such an honor to be able to dedicate my life to helping and healing. All of us at NutritionFacts.org are able to do that thanks to your enduring support. My heartfelt appreciation goes out to all who included us in their end-of-year giving and especially to those who have sustained us all year long as monthly supporters.

My new DVD came out today and is available as streaming video so you can start watching it immediately. In this new volume, I have videos on natural treatments for endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome; the latest on vitamin C, green tea, and aspartame; two videos on soy and breast cancer; the best foods to help prevent strokes; and a really neat one on strengthening the mind-body connection.
The current batch of videos from the previous volume is about to run out on NutritionFacts.org. So, starting next month and running through March 2017, I'll roll out this new set. They will all eventually be available for free online, but if you don't want to wait you can watch them all streaming right now. You can also order it as a physical DVD at DrGreger.org or on Amazon.

Order my new DVD at DrGreger.org/collections/dvds and Amazon, or as a video download/streaming at DrGreger.org/collections/downloads. All proceeds go to keeping the site going and growing.
If you were a regular supporter, you'd already know all this, having already received a link to the new DVD. New DVDs are released every nine weeks. If you'd like to automatically receive them before they're even available to the public, please consider becoming a monthly donor.
Anyone signing up on the donation page to become a $15 monthly contributor will receive the next three DVDs for free, and anyone signing up as a $25 monthly contributor will get a whole year's worth of new DVDs (as physical DVDs, downloads, streaming, or all three--your choice). If you signed up for physical copies, your volume 34 is in the mail. If you don't receive it next week, please email DVDhelp@NutritionFacts.org and we'll make everything all better.
Important Notice to Recurring Donors: We're asking our monthly supporters to update their payment profile through our new donor portal. The new portal allows you to manage your credit card information, print your tax receipts, view your donation history, opt into a birthday surprise, and more. Your old profile will continue giving to NutritionFacts.org until you update your account through the donor portal by creating a new recurring donation (once you set this up we will suspend your old profile so that you are not double charged), or your payment method on file expires. Thank you so much--you are the backbone of support for the site.
Live Q&A's THIS THURSDAY
Every month I'm doing Q&A's live from my treadmill, and this Thursday, December 29 is the day.
- Facebook Live: At noon ET go to our Facebook page to watch live and ask questions.
- Instagram Live Stream: Follow me on Instagram (@nutrition_facts_org) and at 4 pm ET I will show up live in the story feed on the mobile Instagram app. Tap it to open, and then start asking questions! Note: this will only work through the mobile app on your phone or tablet, not your computer browser.
Hopefully between those two, you can get all your questions answered--at least until next month!
Michael Greger, M.D.
