"From the physician behind the wildly popular website NutritionFacts.org, 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 NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen 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 fifteen 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 1 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 stop it in its tracks. In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen a checklist of the twelve 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"--… (mais)

Strong case for a vegan diet for optimal health. I did find myself arguing with it quite a bit. Sweet potatoes, dark greens and black beans are good staples according to this. I think it's a good thing there was a co writer. I found myself thinking that I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time with the main author. I did enjoy his anecdote about meeting a true health food nut at one of his lectures who recounted an intense kale juice experience. ( )

LOVEEEEE THIS! This is such an important book! ( )

What I liked most about this book is the extensive research on which it is based. The 400 pages are backed by another 100 pages of footnotes, and Gregor’s team surveys the full set of academic journals for annual updates to their guidance. This book is divided into two sections. The first set of chapters are about preventative diets oriented to each of several diseases and ailments, such as heart disease, cancer, and suicidal depression. The later chapters summarize the Daily Dozen foods Gregor recommends. This big tome is full of more guidance and competing risks than one can digest in a single reading. ( )

I go back and forth on this book. The problem isn't Dr. Grieger. The problem is the reliance on peer-reviewed studies. Given my own research into problems with replication, plus politics, plus funding, I'm not nearly so enamored with the world of research studies as I used to be. And unless you truly dig in to studies, analyzing their methodology, their use of statistics, etc. you will never be able to know *for sure* if the results advertised are accurate.

I think the best approach to this book (and his web site) is to treat it all as self-experimentation. He mostly deals with food products that are known and safe, so adding them to your diet is extremely unlikely to do any harm. Just don't fall into the trap of believing that a specific set of things will definitely prevent all the bad things in life. ( )
