Analysis / Bias

While eating a diet high in fruits and vegetables and low in red meats is scientifically proven to be beneficial, Dr. Greger takes it to a higher level promoting a 100% plant-based diet. According to the Science Based Medicine website, Dr. Greger and NutritionFacts.org makes “zealot” like claims about the benefits of a vegan plant-based diet. In their article, Science Based Medicine debunks one by one, many of Dr. Gregers claims. They also claim that NutritionFacts cherry-picks information that will always favor veganism. NutritionFacts.org does provide some valuable information and certainly, a diet high in fruits and vegetables is preferred, but Dr. Gregers claims are extreme.

Overall, we rate NutritionFacts.org a moderate Pseudoscience source due to exaggerated health claims. (D. Van Zandt 10/9/2017) Updated (07/07/2018)
