Your immune system may be hard at work defending you against pollen and dust, but it can also defend you against some types of cancer. To learn more about it and about foods that can help reduce allergy symptoms, visit Allergy topic page.

Volunteer Spotlight: Jason Poehler
I help create quotes from articles that Dr. Greger uses in his videos. I love evidence-based medicine and am driven to help make sure that nutrition information is accurate and free of marketing hype. Dr. Greger’s stand on facts and information free from conflict of interest inspires me to continue to help in any way we can.
There are a lot of vegetarian recipes that I enjoy. One of my favorite dishes is the tofu bowl or the edamame poke because of their versatility. You can easily change the ingredients but still get a delicious and dependable meal. On top of that, it’s very easy to assemble and store for a quick lunch or dinner.
