You’ll notice I sometimes take slight departures from just covering strictly nutrition topics (like my Do Antidepressant Drugs Really Work? video). I don’t seek such topics out, but just run across them in my nutrition research and can’t help but get sucked down the rabbit hole. I really wish there were other sites like this that would do evidence-based reviews of these important topics. In fact, there should be a dozen more just on nutrition!
LifestyleFacts.org ( is one attempt at covering other lifestyle medicine topics, and I know Dr. Mark Faries ( is considering doing something with ExerciseFacts.org. To facilitate this movement to provide us all with free, unbiased, science-based resources, I’d be happy to share the nitty gritty inner workings of NutritionFacts.org, in terms of how to get journal access, how to create the videos, etc. In fact, if there’s enough interest I may even do like a day-long seminar or something, but it would be limited to those who are seriously interested—it’s no small undertaking!
