In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we have the privilege of talking to Dr. Michael Greger the genius behind NutritionFacts.org. If you are part of the Plant Power Revolution, Dr. Greger needs no introduction….but he definitely deserves one. He’s known for his online videos and keeps us up to date with all the research and science being done on nutrition. He uses the hard facts mixed with humor to let the population know the good, bad and ugly on all things nutrition. Aside from nutritionfacts.org Dr. Greger is a physician, author, and internationally recognized professional speaker on a number of important public health issues. Dr. Greger proudly serves as the Director of Public Health and Animal Agriculture at the Humane Society of the United States.
His newest book, How Not To Die, was just released December 8th and has already hit the New York Times Best Seller List! All proceeds from the book help fund nutritionfacts.org.
