Nutrition Facts in ASL: More Protein or More Fiber for 97% of U.S. Americans?

Nutrition Facts in ASL: 97% of US Americans Deficient In Nutrient Linked To Several Top 10 Causes of Death

Health Literacy in American Sign Language: In this video we learn how the Standard American Diet (SAD) is increasing the risk of 97% of our loved ones dying from several of the top 10 killers in the United States.

The GREAT news in this video is that we know what to do to DECREASE OUR RISKS. We’ll talk about the science, what the overwhelmingly consistent findings in the best and latest research says we should do if our goal is to live longer and more healthful lives!

Also: We know non-vegetarians get a lot of #protein from meat, right? Well what about #Vegetarians and #Vegans? They can’t possibly get enough protein from #plants. Well to answer that, let’s take a look what the medical literature says … in American Sign Language!

We know that within our community health disparity is a huge issue. Accessibility to information is a big part of why our Deaf community suffers disproportionately when it comes to preventable diseases. Having access to knowledge about how our diet and lifestyle habits can negatively or positively impact our health is health justice.

Please share the information in this video with your loved ones, so we can continue to enjoy them for many more years to come.

Dr. Greger’s book, HNTD, does a great job of systematically synthesizing information from past videos — which are also nothing short of brilliant (NutritionFact videos are all CC) — as well as presenting tons of novel content. I highly encourage those interested to go out and buy Dr. Greger’s new book.]

This is a personal, passion-project that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. I believe in the benefits of the free flow of information — if we know better, we can do better. To improve Health Literacy among persons whose primary, or preferred, language is ASL we must create more freely available content in that field.

To invest in a future where more Deaf/Coda/HoH individuals work in S.T.E.M. fields and turn around and contribute to the shared knowledge-pool of the Deaf and ASL community — we need interest-inspiring content that is accessible now. We need put into place positive-feedback loops that make the default occurrence, the correct occurrence; if you build it, they will come.
