All digital downloads, shirts, and outreach material on are 20 percent off until tomorrow, August 27! Proceeds go to support

We are thrilled to debut our new diversity shirt! We have long stressed the importance of dietary diversity. Each plant family has a unique combination of phytonutrients, which is one of the reasons I developed the Daily Dozen to encourage eating a variety of the very best foods each day for health and longevity. We also continue to share life-saving, life-changing science-based information to communities around the world, which is why everything on our website is free and all of our videos are translated into multiple languages. We’re thankful we get to take part in helping to make the world a more healthful place for everyone. All of the proceeds from the sale of our new diversity shirt will support Food Empowerment Project, a nonprofit food justice organization.

Volume 55 Out Now

My new volume of videos is out today and covers mushrooms, mycotoxins, fasting, bariatric surgery, and more. It is available as a streaming video so you can start watching it immediately. Each video in this new collection will be released online over the next few months, all available for free, of course, but if you don’t want to wait, you can watch all of them by streaming right now

And, remember, if you watch the videos on or YouTube, you can access captions in several different languages. To find yours, click on the settings wheel in the lower-right of the video and then “Subtitles/CC.” Happy viewing!

If you are a $25+ monthly supporter and opted in to our donor rewards, you’d be an expert on these new topics by now, having already received a complimentary link to the new download. If you’d like to receive them before they’re available to the public, please consider becoming a monthly supporter.

Sign up on the donation page to become a $25+ monthly contributor, and be given an opportunity to receive early access to the newest downloads for free as long as your contributions are current. We’re so appreciative of each one of our donors. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to continue our work. 


Key Takeaways: Flaxseeds

I include a tablespoon of flaxseeds in my Daily Dozen checklist of the healthiest foods to eat each day. They’re a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids and cancer-fighting lignans.

Volunteer Spotlight: María Belén Oliva

“I’ve been volunteering as a translator/subtitler at NutritionFacts for some months now and I couldn’t be happier. I’m driven by my passion for food and wellbeing, and to be able to help spread such important content around the world with my translations is really inspiring!

It’s difficult to pick a favourite recipe, but I think it could be an Armenian salad with roasted eggplants, bell peppers, chestnuts, and raisins.”
