Key Takeaways on Organic Food

I’m frequently asked for summaries on many different topics of interest. Your wish is my command. We have topic pages on more than a thousand subjects! Each provides links to many of its related videos and may include a brief summary of the information.

Allow me to highlight some of these pages, starting with one of our most requested topics: organic food. Is it safer and more nutritious? You can learn everything you need to know about organic food on its topic page, which has information on key takeaways and all related videos.

 

New Volume Covers Cultivated Meat, IBD, and Thyroid Function

Vol-53-Download-Artwork (1)My new DVD is out today and available as a streaming video so you can start watching it immediately. You can see the full list of topics here. Eventually, all of these videos will be available online for free over the next few months. If you don’t want to wait for them to roll out, though, you can stream them all right now

If you are a $25+ monthly supporter and opted in to our donor rewards, you’ve already received a complimentary link to the new download, so you’re likely an expert on these new topics by now. If you’d like early access, too, please consider becoming a monthly supporter. Sign up on the donation page to become a $25+ monthly contributor, and, as long as your contributions are current, you’ll get an opportunity to receive the newest downloads for free before they’re available to the public.

And, remember: If you watch the videos on NutritionFacts.org or YouTube, you can access captions in several different languages. To find yours, click on the settings wheel in the lower-right corner of the video and then select “Subtitles/CC.” 
 
 

Upcoming Webinar on Thyroid Function

Thyroid Webinar PromoOne of the most common questions I’m asked is for a natural treatment for Hashimoto’s disease, also known as autoimmune thyroiditis, the leading cause of hypothyroidism. I’m excited to say I found one!

In my upcoming webinar, I will cover the best diet for both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, as well as the healthiest natural source of iodine. All of these videos will eventually be available on NutritionFacts.org over the course of the next year, but you can see them all and get your questions answered by joining me for an hour-long live event on March 5. 

Make a donation of any amount using this form, and we will send you a link to register for the webinar as a donor reward. Our payment processor requires a minimum donation of $5.

Webinar Date & Time: Friday, March 5, 3-4pm ET

Volunteer Spotlight: George Jacobs 

I get a lot of satisfaction from being a part of the ever-more-mighty NutritionFacts.org team. I do proofreading, which lets me read the latest from the greatest in advance. I enjoy the challenge of trying to live up to the NF team’s high standards.  Steven Litrov, the NF volunteer coordinator, is so efficient and so pleasant to interact with. I always look forward to his next assignment. I also promote the NF team’s work as part of the activism I do, and I’m proud to tell people about my small role in that work.

My favorite food is the No Bread – Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich. Peel a very ripe banana. Cut it in half length-wise. Spread no-salt, no-sugar, no-added oil peanut butter on one half. Reunite the halves and enjoy! Here’s a video of the process that I made for a European Union project that teaches language and cuisine.
