  1. My uncle recently had a heart attack and was referred to a clinic that not only promotes a plant based diet, but recommends ALL of Dr. Greger's resources – book, website, Daily Dozen app, etc – in their healthy living plan.
    I can't tell you how happy it made me! When my mother had her heart attack, there was no one advising her on the proper diet, and not even one doctor told her that she could get off her medications, but this clinic did that for my uncle. 
    So unbelievable and SO AMAZING! 
    I wanted you to know Dr. Greger, if you happen to read this, that you are making a difference, and your influence is FAR reaching. This unrelated clinic is recommending your content to patients! How incredible is that!
    Where my own voice wasn't powerful enough to change my Uncle and Aunt, yours was. You have influenced their lives for the better, and countless other people, some of whom haven't even sought you out.
    Thank you so much, to you and your team, for your hard work. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

  2. The reflection of the green screen in your glasses is distracting. I wonder if you could stand in front of an actual tv with the same content and get the same effect without it. Also the excerpts fly around a little too much. I would prefer they fade in and out more than move. Thanks for asking!
