An eNews reader points out an excellent resource for the latest advances in nutrition and other health-related subjects. The goal of NutritionFacts.org is to present the results of the latest in peer-reviewed nutrition and health research in a way that is easy to understand for all of us. It is science-based, without commercials and is provided as a public service by Michael Greger, MD. The Jesse & Julie Rasch Foundation provides support for this 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
Interesting recent news from Dr. Greger in his own words.
- “Can Diabetic Retinopathy Be Reversed? The reversal of blindness due to hypertension and diabetes with Dr. Kempner’s rice and fruit diet demonstrates the power of diet to exceed the benefits of the best modern medicine and surgery has to offer.
- “Music as Medicine Music can beat out anti-anxiety drugs, Mozart can reduce allergic reactions, and how listening to your favorite tunes can significantly affect your testosterone levels.
- “How to Treat High Blood Pressure with Diet The DASH diet is one of the best studied, and consistently ranks as US News & World Report’s #1 diet. It’s one of the few diets that medical students are taught about in medical school. I was so fascinated to learn of its origins as a compromise between practicality and efficacy.”
