How Not to Die in a Pandemic Webinar Coming Up

Due to the continuing spread of coronavirus, I’m doing a webinar on the subject: How Not to Die in a Pandemic. This webinar will be April 8 from 2-4pm ET. For more information and to register, go here.  UPDATE: The webinar is now full (thank you to the almost 5,000 people who signed up!). The information will be available on NutritionFacts.org after the webinar. Be sure to subscribe to our newsletter to stay informed of upcoming special events. 

The videos from my most recent webinar, Why Do Vegetarians Have Higher Stroke Risk?, are now available for digital download here

In fact, all of my previous webinars are available:

Many of the videos from those webinars are already up on NutritionFacts.org, but if you’d like them all in one place, check out the downloads. Note that these are just the videos from the webinars, and do not include the live Q&As.

New volume covers Lp(a)

Volume 50My new volume is out today and is available as a streaming video so you can start watching it immediately. As you can see below, the main focus is on the obesity epidemic and the question of whether vegetarians really have higher stroke risk and why. If these topics look familiar, it is because they were the focus of my recent webinars (see below for details on my next one!)  All of these videos will eventually be available for free online over the next few months, but if you don’t want to wait, you can watch them all streaming right now. You can also order it as a physical DVD.

Speaking Tour on Hold

Speaking tourGiven the level of reported community transmission and the prospects of flattening the pandemic curve by preventing unnecessary public gatherings, I’m postponing my speaking tour until we have a better handle on the prevalence and spread after sufficient testing is completed. Please check our speaking tour page for the most up to date information on events. 

I’ve also been doing tons of interviews – here’s a recent one featured in British GQ
