Daily Dozen iOS App


In the years of research required to create the more than a thousand evidence-based videos on, Michael Greger, MD, FACLM, has arrived at a list of what he considers the most important foods to include in a healthy daily diet. Yes, greens are good for you, but how much should we try to eat each day?

Dr. Greger’s Daily Dozen details the healthiest foods and how many servings of each we should try to check off every day. He explains his rationale in his book How Not to Die. All his proceeds from his books, DVDs, and speaking engagements is all donated to charity.
