How Not to Die (book review)

Learning about the benefits of a whole-food plant-based diet, and experiencing them firsthand, has been enlightening and life-changing--so much so that I am eager to share what I am learning with others so they too can enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.

Currently I am reading a book that has the potential to change lives.  I cannot recommend it highly enough!    How Not to Die by Michael Greger, M.D. is a thoroughly-researched and well-written book about the power of plants to prevent, and in some cases reverse, some of the chronic diseases plaguing our society.

Part I consists of individual chapters dealing with how not to die from the top fifteen killers:  heart disease, lung diseases, brain diseases, digestive cancers, infections, diabetes, high blood pressure, liver diseases, blood cancers, kidney disease, breast cancer, suicidal depression, prostate cancer, Parkinson's disease, and Iatrogenic causes.

Part II includes information on Dr. Greger's recommended Daily Dozen  (beans, berries, other fruits, cruciferous vegetables, greens, other vegetables, flaxseeds, nuts and seeds, herbs and spices, whole grains, beverages, and exercise).

If you want to take control of your health, lose weight, prevent or reverse disease or help others find the path to better health, then buy and read this book!  Knowledge is power, and I believe that once you read this well-presented and easy-to-understand information you will find the motivation to positively change your health and quality of life.

For better health and a better life,

Dee Dee

  1. An excellent review of the book, such books are needed by every person, since many people, without knowing it themselves, destroy themselves from the interior and do not think about it. You need to know everything about your body, as this will help you live longer. You can use such services to get the information https://academicsavers.com/research-paper-writing/, but this is only for those who know exactly what the problem is and what to look for.
