Nutritional Research Pioneer, Author, and Radio Talk Show Host,
Joel Wallach, BS, DVM, ND

Dr. Wallach has spent his life studying the effects of individual nutrients on disease and bringing that message to the general public. Thanks largely in part to his efforts, the public is now aware of the effects of essential fatty acids on heart disease, folic acid on neural tube defects, and selenium on cancer and other diseases. His forward-thinking ideas form the basis of his famous lecture, Dead Doctors Don’t Lie. With more than 150 million copies distributed, the most widely distributed health lecture in history.

With years of research and thousands of autopsy’s on humans and animals Dr. Wallach has identified the following 90 nutrients as being essential to human survival.

None of these ninety nutrients are optional… they are essential for two basic reasons:
(1) The body cannot produce them. They must be consumed and
(2) a deficiency in any one of these nutrients will impact our health and can be directly linked to a disease. 

These are the ninety essential nutrients that are are required for optimum health and longevity.
