DESCRIPTION: Dr. Greger shares the story of his grandmother, who inspired him to go into medicine.

This is the first time I’ve ever done a video like this. This came about because of user feedback we got in that survey we did a few weeks ago. Many of you asked for me to come up with more basic, introductory videos you can share with those new to both the site and the whole concept that our food choices can exert tremendous power over our health destiny and longevity.

So with the volunteer help of videographer Grant Peacock (, I came up with ten introduction and overview-type videos for both new users to orient themselves, and for long-time users to use to introduce people to the site. Stay tuned for:

• Why You Should Care About Nutrition (
• Taking Personal Responsibility for Your Health (
• The Philosophy of (
• Behind the Scenes at (
• How Not to Die from Heart Disease (
• How Not to Die from Cancer (
• How Not to Die from Diabetes (
• How Not to Die from Kidney Disease (
• How Not to Die from High Blood Pressure (

What we’re going to do is alternate between these broader overview-type videos and the regularly scheduled content so as not to bore those who just crave the latest science.

    Dr. Greger, Tonight, I have been watching your interviews on YouTube and I wanted to stop by and tell you that you are adorable. You really are. Normally, I would be telling you how brilliant you are, and how much I have learned from you, but that is for another time. I got to the interview where you are wearing a hat and my heart just melted. I feel like you and I would have been life-long friends if I was in high school or college with you. Blessings on you and your love of your life. Deb
