Why diets are failing us –



What if everything you thought you knew about health and wellness was wrong? Peter co-authored “Why Diets are Failing Us” and the upcoming books, “The TDOS Syndrome” (toxicity deficiency of nutrition, overweight and stress) and “The TDOS Protocolâ„¢” He is the voice for what you are NOT hearing from cutting edge health science research.

His studies included reading over 500 books and more than 10,000 hours of research. My work was accelerated through his work and friendships with Dr. Bill Andrews (PhD in population genetics and molecular biology who helped discover the enzyme telomerase and telomeres), and John Anderson (a nutritional chemist who formulated over 2300 nutritional products for over 650 companies). Today he is considered one of the leading activists alerting the world about the toxicity and deficiency of nutrition in food, and solutions to live a healthier longer life.

He has given more than 1,000 lectures around the world. In December 2013, Greenlaw lectured at the CEO Club of NYC. It is The World’s Oldest and Largest International Non-profit Business Association for CEOs and Entrepreneurs”, and has attracted numerous top-tier speakers, experts, and business leaders including Ted Turner, W. Clement Stone, T. Boone Pickens, Steve Forbes and Victor Kiam. His TV show “The New Health Conversation” on Rocky Mountain PBS (shown in four Rocky Mountain states) reveals a fresh new approach to talking about health and wellness, diet and nutrition. My guests have included Dr. John Gray PhD, Dr. Bill Andrews PhD, Dr. Michael Colgan PhD and Melanie Warner.
