All the evidence in the world is worthless, unless it can be translated into action.

The second half of How Not to Die was one attempt to try to break down the research into actionable steps. But we don’t have the luxury of changing lives one individual at a time. People are dying now. We need institutional change. The hospitals need to change what they’re serving, schools need to change what they’re serving, restaurants need to change what they’re serving. But there was no organization out there systematically affecting evidence-based nutrition on an institutional level… until now!

I’m proud to announce that NutritionFacts.org has been instrumental in launching Balanced, a new nonprofit organization. Please check them out at Balanced.org, join their mailing list, follow them on social media. Strap yourself in for the evidence-based nutrition revolution!
