Millions suffer needlessly from health problems that can be prevented, arrested, and even reversed with simple dietary changes. However, individuals who want to make the right dietary choices for themselves and their families are faced with a deluge of confusing and conflicting nutritional advice.
The goal of our nonprofit is to present you, your doctor, and the world with the results of the latest in peer-reviewed nutrition research, delivered in a way that is easy to understand. The vast majority of premature death and disability is preventable with a healthy diet and lifestyle choices. Though there is a scientific consensus as to the core elements of healthy living, the corrupting influence of commercial interests has left the public confused as to how to best feed themselves and their families.
That’s why NutritionFacts.org was created; to cut through the hype and present the latest in evidence-based nutrition. Everything on the website is free. There are no ads. There is nothing for sale. We just thrive on a Wikipedia-type model where users make donations to support the public service. NutritionFacts.org is a labor of love—a tribute to Dr. Greger’s grandmother whose own life was saved by improving her diet.
