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.

Info OK; Sprecher extrem schlecht

Bezieht sich auf die englische Version: Die Informationen im Buch sind wertvoll und interessant. Allerdings wer Eat to Live und Co. bereits kennt, wird hier nicht viel neues finden. Das Problem ist wie der Autor das Material vorliest. Es ist als ob er beim Podcast wäre. Er wollte wohl, dass es locker klingt wie bei einem Gespräch, aber sein Stil ging mir richtig auf die Nerven. Mit so vielen "ähs" und "ehms" und "you knows" konnte ich mich überhaupt nicht auf den Inhalt konzentrieren. Er macht auch dauernd Pausen mitten im Satz. Wenn ich ein Hörbuch kaufe, dann erwarte ich einen professionellen Sprecher!

A potentially world-changing message

Eating a whole foods plant based diet can positively affect 14 out of the 15 leading causes of death in the united states, most importantly hard disease and cancer.

However, if you already heard the message from the documentary "What the health" or from YouTube videos from Dr. Greger, you don't need this book. It's a long and boring list of which food has which benefit (for example beets enhance sports performance). Just eat varied as hell and check out Dr. Gregers daily dozen on
