We are delighted to announce that Dr. Michael Greger, MD, FACLM has become Viva!’s Honorary Scientific Adviser. Dr. Greger is a physician, author and internationally recognised professional speaker on a number of important public health issues. He runs NutritionFacts.org, the first science-based, non-commercial website to provide free daily videos and articles on the latest discoveries in nutrition.
Of becoming Viva!’s Honorary Scientific Adviser, he said: "I'm delighted to become Viva!'s honorary scientific adviser. The good news is that we have tremendous power over our health destiny and longevity—the vast majority of premature death and disability is preventable with a plant-based diet and other healthy lifestyle behaviors."
Dr. Greger's recent scientific publications in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, Biosecurity and Bioterrorism, Critical Reviews in Microbiology, Family & Community Health, and the International Journal of Food Safety, Nutrition, and Public Health explore the public health implications of industrialized animal agriculture. And his latest book, How Not To Die, accompanied by an international speaking tour has been a phenomenal success.
