NutritionalFacts.org is brought to you by the Jesse & Julie Rasch Foundation in partnership with Michael Greger, M.D. Dr. Greger who scours the world of nutrition-related research, as published in scientific journals, and brings that information to you in short, easy to understand video segments. We also provide links to the original journal articles whenever possible so that you can source the information directly, if you so desire.

  • Should Carrageenan Be Avoided?
    Six hundred years ago, people living along the coast of Carragheen County Ireland started using a red algae, which came to be known as Irish moss, to make a jellied dessert. This moss is now the source of carrageenan, a fat substitute (perhaps most famously used in the failed McLean Deluxe) and a food additive… (...more)

  • Treating Menstrual Pain With Diet
    Almost half of menstruating women experience painful, crampy periods, also known as dysmenorrhea. According to Dr. Linda French from Michigan State University College of Medicine, “despite the substantial effect on quality of life and general well-being, few women seek treatment, thinking it won't help.” Treatments are available, though–modern (...more)

  • Cayenne for Irritable Bowel
    Nearly 50 million Americans come down with food poisoning every year. Over a hundred thousand are hospitalized and thousands die every year just because of something they ate. If they had ordered something different on the menu or chosen something else at the grocery store, they or their loved one might be alive today. But… (...more)

  • Natural Treatment for Cluster Headaches
    In a study “Secretion, Pain and Sneezing Induced by the Application of Capsaicin to the Nasal Mucosa in Man,” researchers found that if we cut a hot pepper and rub it inside our nostrils, our nose will start running, hurting, and we'll start sneezing (capsaicin is the burning component of hot peppers). Why would anyone… (...more)

  • Foods With Natural Melatonin
    We know that inadequate sleeping is associated with changes in diet—people tend to eat worse—but what about the opposite question: Can food affect sleep? In a study on kiwifruit, this seemed possible (see Kiwifruit For Insomnia), but the mechanism the researchers suggested for the effect—the serotonin levels in kiwifruit—doesn't make any sense, (...more)

  • Two Kiwifruit an Hour Before Bedtime
    The number one question in sleep research is “Why do we sleep?” followed by the question,“How much sleep do we need?” After literally hundreds of studies, we still don't know the best answer to either question. A few years ago, I featured a large, 100,000-person study which suggested that both short and long sleep duration… (...more)

  • Can We Fight the Blues With Greens?
    Why does frequent consumption of vegetables appear to cut one's odds of depression by more than half? And “frequent” was defined as eating vegetables not 3 or more times a day, but just 3 or more times a week. A 2012 study was found that eliminating animal products improved mood within two weeks. The researchers… (...more)

  • Starving Tumors of Their Blood Supply
    About a third of common cancers may be prevented by eating a healthy, plant-based diet; being physically active; and maintaining a healthy weight. One of the ways plants may help is by cutting off the supply lines to cancerous tumors. A tumor cannot grow without a blood supply. Currently, it is believed that a tumor… (...more)

  • Breast Cancer and Wine
    After diagnosis, women with breast cancer may cut their risk of dying nearly in half by just instituting simple, modest lifestyle changes—5 or more servings of fruits and veggies a day and walking 30 minutes a day, 6 days a week. But what about preventing breast cancer in the first place? If we follow the… (...more)
