Here I go again trying to mix things up. This one is thanks to David Greenberg, owner of WiseStreet.com ( who graciously donated his teams time, energy and resources to create this animation. Please let me know what you think. I’m trying to think of ways to get away from the straight study-quote-study-quote tedium of most of my videos. Yes it’s a great way to present the primary scientific literature for those who already know the basics, but I also want to try to appeal to those new to the concept of healthier eating. This was going to be the final video of this experimental 11-part series, but an animated summary of How Not to Die ( was just created, so I’ll be putting that up to wrap out a dozen. Check out the other 10 if you want a good overview in hopes you’ll get hooked on the science!
