Assist me fill the carrot: Help our 2020 fundraiser

Our annual end-of-year fundraising campaign begins today. Year after year, more than half of our total annual operating budget was raised in the last few weeks of December. So we count on your generosity during the fundraising season to make a tax-deductible donation to keep up and running and growing.

This year we have a special opportunity: a very generous donor raises the first $ 100,000. You read that right! You have the chance to double your contribution!

I may be the face of, but there is a veritable army of volunteers and now more than a dozen people behind the scenes. They help me work through the thousands of studies each week to stay on the cutting edge of science and allow me to bring you videos and articles daily on the latest in evidence-based nutrition.

This is only possible because of you.

Did you know that accessing a single academic database like Web of Science can cost nearly $ 50,000 annually? Every year thousands of people come forward and donate large and small to appreciate our work. Hundreds have even signed up as monthly donors, which helps ensure a predictable steady stream of support. Please “root” for the facts by helping us fill the carrot! It’s a numbers game, and even a dollar gift can help.

There are many ways to support evidence-based nutrition. On the donation page, you can give a tax-deductible gift with a credit card or PayPal. You can also send a check payable to to PO Box 11400, Takoma Park, MD 20913. Federal employees can donate to through the CFC workplace donation program called 26461.

Thank you for your support. We really appreciate that!

Do vegans really have more broken bones?

Visit Dr. Greger for a free, hour-long live presentation of the latest EPIC Oxford study results, which indicated that plant-based foods have negative effects on bone health. Is it true? And if so, what is the mechanism and how can we best protect our skeletons into old age?

Visit our YouTube channel or Facebook page on Friday December 18th at 3pm (CET) to experience this deep dive. Dr. Greger will stream to both at the same time!

Volunteer Spotlight: Brad Longworth

“I started working with NF in December 2012 after Dr. Greger had asked for volunteers at one of his lectures. I’ve done a lot of work over the years, but right now I put all of the content on the web pages for each video. I was truly honored in 2018 when I was invited to join the board of Helping others has always been a priority for me and it is a great privilege to work with Dr. Greger and to see up close his commitment to helping humanity regain and maintain health. Choosing a favorite recipe is like choosing a favorite child – it really doesn’t work! But lately I’ve really been in a BROL bowl (see the recipe in the brand new cookbook The How Not to Diet!) With evaporated spinach, spring onions, garlic, and miso paste. “
