Interested in living longer, better and enjoying a life filled with health and well-being?
Then check out esteemed physician, internationally-recognized lecturer and founder of NutritionFacts.org, Dr. Michael Greger.
In particular, Vegan News Daily recommends that your read, or listen to Dr. Greger’s monumental book, “How Not to Die.” In it, the good doctor explores the 15 top causes of death in America—heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s, high blood pressure, and more—and tells us – in graphic yet easy-to-understand language — how nutritional and lifestyle changes can help all of us lead a more healthy life. Period.
On his website, Dr. Greger’s description is compelling: “The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle.”
“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.”
Examples abound: “History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet. Have high blood pressure? Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug—and without the side effects. What about liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (our #1 killer)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to help prevent the disease, but arrest and even reverse it.“
What’s more, 100% of the proceeds from the sale of the book are donated to charity.
