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.

How Not to Die is a fantastic reference book… How Not to Die is a fantastic read and reference book. Fans of Dr Greger’s popular website, nutritionfacts.org, will not be disappointed. Having worked with him closely for the last 4 years, I will assure you his search for as he calls it, an evidence-based diet, trumps any ideology labels that might be tossed his way. Make no mistake about it, he is an advocate of increasing whole plant food in the diet, but he’s in no way blinded by it. On more than one occasion we’ve exchanged new journal…

Best Book on Nutrition and Health in Years (beautifully written and painstakingly cited) This is the best book on the science of nutrition that I have read in years. On the one hand, it’s a large volume. On the other hand, it’s broken up nicely into bite-sized pieces, with chapters that focus on fifteen key ailments, including (of course) the big ones: Heart Disease, Cancer, Obesity, Diabetes. Although each chapter is packed with painstakingly cited information, the writing is exactly what writing should be: Fast-paced and unobtrusive. In short, both the information and the reading…

The Dark Age of modern medicine ends! Being familiar with Dr. Michael Greger’s web site and the free audio talks I knew the material would be good, but wondered about its readability. It was a pleasant surprise to find the book an enjoyable read, it does not read like typical medical literature. He finds ways to make nutritional information interesting and humors: “Want fries with That Lipitor?”. And even when covering a subject I’d normally consider to be dry, like oxidative stress, he adds metaphors and…
