Dr. Greger has scoured the world's scholarly literature on clinical nutrition and developed this brand new talk of the latest in cutting-edge research. Focusing on recent studies in peer-reviewed scientific nutrition journals, Dr. Greger offers practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic disease.
