30 Bananas a Day!

great site with nutritional research information

this is dr greger's new site:

http://nutritionfacts.org/

 

he has many excerpts from his videos here listing the peer reviewed papers that inspired them. this can be a very fine resource for anyone who wants to see what the science research has to say about various topics.

 

(note: we may not agree with some of the findings for various reasons, but this resource is nevertheless very useful due to the variety of topics and greger's fine and delightful  presentation.)

 

also uploaded is the biblio for the 3700+ articles and resources that have gone (so far) into making his dvds and the site. more bibs will follow as they are prepared. the bibs were produced using Pere Constans' excellent open source (gpl3 licensed) cb2bib program.

UPDATE 2013-07-15: greger's site could use some help with your donations to pay for web expenses. you can make your contributions here.
