Description

From the physician behind the wildly popular website Nutrition Facts, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.

The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of Nutrition Facts, examines the 15 top causes of premature death in America - heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, and more - and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives.

The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The 15 leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn't have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger's advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer.

History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk, and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug - and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number-one killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often to stop it in its tracks.

In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top 15 causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen - a checklist of the 12 foods we should consume every day. Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting-edge nutritional science, these doctor's orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Pseudoscientific / very disappointed"
    Seriez-vous prêt à écouter un nouveau livre de Michael Greger, MD ? Expliquez pourquoi.

    No. His arguments are very biased! It is not an evidence-based guideline.


    Qu'est-ce que vous n'avez pas aimé dans la performance de Michael Greger, MD ?

    The only conclusion, I could draw from this book, that we should not smoke, exercise more, and eat more whole plant-based foods. But I new it already even before listening to the book!! I expected to learn solid scientifically sound data, but the information the author provide is too much vegan-biased! I can not trust all those data! The fact are not provided in a scientific way, and they are too much cherry-picked.
    The author stipulates that eating diary, eggs and poultry are literally killing you. Which I don't find correct! If you are consuming farm-organic-grown meat and diary, especially white low-fat poultry, I don't really see how that can so devastating consequences on my health.
    The author highlights too much some scientific facts, which confirm his vision, but never explains the mechanisms, which I find very un-scientific.
    Moreover, he never talks about the importance of well-balanced diet on the general functioning of our body.
    Very disappointing!
