Dr. Michael Greger explains why no other nutrition site on the web offers the same level of comprehensive research and information as NutritionFacts.org.
People love to hear good news about their bad habits. There are plenty of web sites out there that strive to make people feel good about eating a diet that will shorten their lifespan. It’s easy to cherry pick data in a way that can make it seem like everything from bacon to cheese burgers will enhance your health.
NutritionFacts is relatively unique in the nutrition information world. For starters, it’s run by a doctor with statistical and research training. The data they chose to present has been culled over by large research team before it ever makes it on to the website. The factual evidence of each paper presented is cross-checked against the entire body of existing research for consistency and accuracy.
NutritionFacts is also entirely non-profit, accepting no ads, selling no products, funded entirely through public donations. You don’t have to worry about monetary conflicts of interest on NutritionFacts since the organization has nothing to gain or lose from the information they provide.
If I had to recommend one website for people interested in nutrition information, NutritionFacts is hands-down the best nutrition site on the web today.
