Whether you read this book cover to cover or dip in to references online, it is well worth a look. It has changed the way I look at food and my food choices. We follow the daily dozen which is a great guide to a balanced diet. I will never look at saffron the same way again.
4.8/5.0 from 484 reviews on Amazon and wide scale endorsement:
“This book brims with valuable insights. Dr Greger tends to rely on the gold standard of medical research randomised controlled trials rather than the latest fads. Vegetarian or not, this book is a great way to improve your diet.” -Financial Times
“”How Not To Die” is one of the most important books on health ever written. Dr. Greger shows us how to prevent and sometimes reverse all the major diseases that are killing us. We have the genetic potential to live disease free lives full of health and vitality until we are past 100. This book is the scientific road map we need to do exactly that.” -John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Markets
“We strive to make the best of our lives by maintaining our physical health and mental happiness. As food is the fuel for our survival, how healthily we survive and how well we recover from illness may also depend on what we eat. Michael Greger’s How Not to Die suggests different preventative and curative measures for tackling ailments we are all vulnerable to. I hope that this book may help those who are susceptible to illnesses that can be prevented with proper nutrition.” –His Holiness the Dalai Lama
“An absolute rhapsody of informational wisdom on how to achieve a life of health and longevity without disease.”–Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr. M.D., author of “Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease”
