In How Not to Die, Dr Michael Greger examines the top causes of premature death- heart disease, various cancers, diabetes and many more- and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to lead healthier lives.
Do you have a history of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. High blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypersensitive drug- and without the side effects. Worried about heart disease? Switch to a whole-food, plant based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not to prevent the disease, but often stop it in its tracks.
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.
