  • Dr. Greger Takes on Calcium Supplements in New DVD
    The optimal daily calcium intake is one of the most controversial areas in nutrition. Unlike most other nutrients, there exists no international consensus. For example in the UK, the recommendation for adults is 700 mg a day, but  in the US, it's up to 1,200 a day. Whenever I see that kind of huge discrepancy […] (...more)

  • Where Do You Get Your Fiber?
    Vegetarians and vegans are all too familiar with the question: Where do you get your protein? Well, we can finally put to rest the question of whether vegetarians get enough protein thanks to a large study that compared the nutrient profiles of about 30,000 non-vegetarians to 20,000 vegetarians and about 5,000 vegans, 5,000 flexitarians (vegetarian (...more)

  • Exercise as Medicine
    Physical inactivity has been called the biggest public health problem of the 21st century. Of course, just because someone calls it that doesn't mean it's true; in fact, physical inactivity ranks down at #5 in terms of risk factors for death, and #6 in terms of risk factors for disability. Diet is by far our […] (...more)

  • Eliminate Most of Your Chronic Disease Risk in Four Steps
    In 1903, Thomas Edison predicted that the doctor of the future will give no medicine, but instead “instruct his patient in the care of the human frame in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” A hundred and one years later, the American College of Lifestyle Medicine was born. Lifestyle docs like myself […] (...more)

  • Soyfoods, Olive Oil, Beans, and Omega-3s: A Vegan Plan for Reducing Depression
    Some ex-vegans say that they became depressed on a plant-based diet. If they did, it was probably due to poor food choices and maybe a lack of recommended supplements. It's doubtful that a healthy vegan diet promotes depression. In fact, eating more plant foods may have a few advantages for people who suffer from this […] (...more)

    This blog focuses "on issues related to both veganism and paleontology, my two biggest passions; I live by one and am working towards a master's degree in the other. It may seem a strange combination, but hopefully you'll come to see otherwise by reading this humble blog. In my mind, both subjects converge in their connection to issues of climate change, evolution, human health, and H. sapiens' impact and place in the web of life. I think you'll find that using those two concepts -- veganism and paleontology -- as lenses can be the key to a wide range of interesting and vitally important subjects; hence, the title of this blog.
