Credence is proud to present the latest in a series of videos on cutting-edge health issues. We have created this fast-paced one-hour show taken from a recent live talk by renowned nutritionist Dr. Michael Greger. Delivered in a dynamic quiz-show style, the presentation draws on a massive volume of peer-reviewed scientifc information published in medical journals over the past 12 months.
Dr Greger covers a wide range of foods and additives and separates the good from the bad, presenting the scientific facts and dispelling common myths and misconceptions. This is a real eye-opener and a much needed 'straight talk' for anyone seeking to avoid potential dangers and steer towards a healthier lifestyle.

Both versions are in MPEG-2 format and should be playable on any computer.(You will need an Mpeg-2 codec but if you have a DVD drive in your machine you will usually have the codec installed already).
The high resolution version is full size standard definition (720 X 576 pixels). The smaller version is 480 X 360 pixels.
A quick test download using a fairly average broadband connection yielded a download time of 36 minutes per file. You may want to use some type of download manager software in order to be able to stop/ pause / resume your download or in order to safeguard against unexpected loss of connection etc.
One such option is called 'Download Accelerator Plus' (DAP) and is available as a free version which you can get here.
Our initial tests using DAP show a download time roughly 1/3 of the time it took to download normally.
Although it says 'please choose' above the 'add to cart' button, there is no need to choose the files, they are all enabled by default so purchasing the download gives you access to either version (all three files). The full resolution version if you have a reasonably fast connection and want the largest size or the smaller version for slower connections or if you just want the content of the video and are not as bothered about the picture size / resolution).
