Hey Meetup Member,
Wanted to let you know about this brand new DVD from Dr. Michael Greger. Michael really delivers on his annual reports on all the latest in clinical nutrition. He's spoken for the Earthsave Baltimore group several times, and his presentations, especially theses annual reports, are always impassioned and lots of fun!
Peace, Don Robertson
Dr. Greger Writes:
I'm so excited to announce that the newest volume of my annual Latest in
Nutrition series is being released next week! As usual, I scoured the world's
scholarly literature on clinical nutrition so you don't have to, bringing
together the most interesting, practical, and groundbreaking science published
over the last 12 months on how best to feed ourselves and our families to
prevent, treat, and even reverse chronic disease.
I found so much great stuff this year that it wouldn't even fit on one DVD!
So, Latest in Nutrition 2009 is being released as a special 2 DVD set, with
more than 3 hours of material split into more than 100 chapters.
Here is just a small sampling of the questions I address this year:
Does soy really lower sperm counts?
