How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease
‘This book may help those who are susceptible to illnesses that can be prevented with proper nutrition’ – His Holiness the Dalai Lama
The international bestseller, Dr Michael Greger’s How Not To Die gives effective, scientifically-proven nutritional advice to prevent our biggest killers – including heart disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer, Hypertension and diabetes – and reveals the astounding health benefits that simple dietary choices can provide.
Why rely on drugs and surgery to cure you of life-threatening disease when the right decisions can prevent you from falling ill initially?
Based on the latest scientific research, How Not To Die examines each of the most common diseases to reveal what, how and why different foods have an effect on us, and how increasing our consumption of certain foods and avoiding others can dramatically reduce our risk of falling sick and even reverse the effects of disease. It also shares Dr Greger’s ‘Daily Dozen’ – the twelve foods we should all eat on a daily basis to stay in the best of health.
With emphasis on individual family health history and acknowledging that everyone needs something different, Dr Michael Greger offers practical dietary advice to help you live longer, healthier lives.
