    How Not to Die Alone []  2020-1-28 22:58

    This story will stick with you. It’s a love story surrounded by death. I highly enjoyed the premise of a government official who’s day-to-day job is sorting through the homes of people who die alone.

    How Not to Die Alone []  2020-1-28 22:58

    This novel was too much of a mixed bag to truly work. On one hand, you have an introverted, if not isolated, protagonist who has dug himself into a huge deep hole, due to both past grief and constant lying about something major. A protagonist you feel for and root for, hoping one day he will climb out of that hole. On the other hand, you have some hard to believe situations, occupation duties that a lot of will not want to read about, plus very vulgar thoughts and statements. The vulgarity is not constant, mind you, but it’s there and doesn’t seem to belong in a story such as this one. Then, the end of the novel turns out to be somewhat of a chore to read, plus every issue the protagonist has is nicely wrapped up with a bow. There are definitely noteworthy observations in this story about being with others, as opposed to being alone; and about choosing to live a “real” life, as opposed to a fantasy one. Yet those keen observations seem to obtain buried so much of the time under too a lot of other things that are nothing but distracting.

    Every now and then you need a novel full of true life and humor. There is a lot to like in this book from the character's job, his humanity and the author's amazing sense of humor. I'm hoping he is working on another book. Test it!

    I didn’t realize when starting this book that I would have fun it as much as I did. It’s a brilliant book filled with all emotions. I had read the Eleanor Oliphant book so I thought I’d like this book too and I sure did!

    How Not to Die Alone []  2020-1-28 22:58

    I read a lot, and it's rare that a book gives me that "must continue reading asap" feeling. You know the one that tries to temp you during work hours or makes you stay up later than you wanted when you're reading in bed? This book was one such treat. As other reviewers have noted it is a small dark at times, but isn't life also dark at times? At heart it's a very relatable human story, the excellent balance of romcom and gravitas. When huge life happenings happen and real healing gets delayed, then we can make even more pain and suffering for ourselves via the self-imposed isolation that we so eagerly sought. This is the story of one human finding his method out through (as it always must be) love. If this were a movie, I see Simon Pegg as the main character. If you loved Three Weddings and a Funeral, or Hector and the Find for Happiness, you'll likely love this too.

    This is not a self-help book, it’s a novel. It’s extremely funny and I found myself relating to the hero more than I would like to admit. I think it was a amazing read and I would recommend it if you were looking for something fun and light to read. I had to pull out my dictionary a couple of times to obtain the definitions of a few of the words and I consider myself to be beautiful smart.

    It seems like the author of this book read `Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine' and decided to write a male ver of it. Basically an overly simplistic waste of time but better than cleaning the bathroom! Then you'd have a clean bathroom, though, so maybe just do that.

    The How Not to Die Cookbook: 100+ Recipes to Help Prevent and Reverse Disease [Book]  2017-12-5 18:1

    I've been anxiously awaiting the release of this cookbook. I'm satisfied to say, it was worth the wait. I've already tried some sample recipes released before the book, and they are delicious. This cookbook makes it even easier to follow Dr. Greger's Everyday Dozen. The recipes let for pre-planning meals to maximize the number of servings of each item. It features recipes for every food and healthy snacks. It provides helpful hints for pre-prepping foods to create eating healthy easier in the midst of busy schedules. I've been a vegetarian for forty years, vegan for two, but it was Dr. Greger who turned me into a healthy eater. Amazing cookbook, delicious food!

    How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease [Book]  2017-12-17 18:0

    I grabbed the audible edition as it is amazing to listen on street on commute and is a amazing listen!! Audio book is amazing for listening in vehicle or while on a morning run. I have a hard copy too! Each chapter is less than an hour and there are over 30 chapters in the audible book.I have given list of other books at the end which will cement the ideas in this book and create you more aware if you like this book.Dr. Greger is a powerhouse of nutrition wealth. His www service nutritionfacts dot org should be your homepage that you visit everyday and part of your morning routine. I am glad he has brought out the book in multiple formats including audio book. We have dozens of scientific papers on plant based nutrition and the miracle it can do for us. Humans are sticklers to habits and we do not wish to change if we are told poor things about our habits. Hopefully this book will change you in a scientific way. I am amazed at the thousands of research articles in this zone that Dr. Greger poured through for this book. This book is written by Dr. Michael Greger and Gene Stone. I cannot imagine the amount of effort it took to create a book like this. I am waiting for the book tour to see what the author has to say!This book is a detailed summary of all the research Dr. Greger has done and the videos that he has place in his website. The book has an perfect flow and a pleasure to read. My daughter has used multiple hints from his videos and for two years in a row did her middle school science experiments in the zone of Phytomedicine. Her science teachers were impressed at the results and she acknowledged Dr. Greger in her e book with 15 chronic diseases and how the plant power can HEAL/REPAIR/PREVENT them. The book is about taking RESPONSIBILITY for your and for your family. The diseases range from coronary HEART DISEASDE, lung disease, DIABETES, high blood pressure and a lot of types of cancers like breast, blood etc. These are in the part I. The part II with more practical aspects on what plant based foods are very helpful and a plan for us. Not Greger diet, but evidence based DIET. A lot of meal types are explained e.g., beans, berries, flaxseed, to name a few. There is a section on exercise which is great. Only thing that I will add to this list is mindful meditation. Meditation will take you to the next e introduction has a story of Dr. Greger’s grandmother involving Nathan Pritikin, who is a pioneer in this health based technique for preventing and reversing diseases. This story motivated Dr. Greger to become the doctor he is and his mission in the life. In the introduction, authors say “WE HAVE THE POWER”. But why do we not take it. This book may and I hope will eventually become a national bestseller adorning front pages of newspapers, magazines and morning shows. Imagine the power and impact it will have on US and globe economy if we all turned plant based. People will do so much productive work instead of being sick. The list of mortalities is chilling. The book states 375,000 deaths from heart disease a year. This could be almost entirely be preventable. The author does not advocate a vegetarian or vegan diet, but an evidence based whole meal plant based (WFPB) diet. The book talks about diseases, fruits, herbs and almost seem MAGICAL at a lot of parts. How can plants turn the life around? We call iPhone MAGICAL but refuse to call TURMERIC as magical. That is the irony in the modern world. The health aspect is only one part of an equation. There are large environmental impact and animal welfare if we adopt the approach suggested by Dr. Greger. I give some pointer books in those locations at the e book is an AMALGAMATION of Chemistry, BioChemistry, Health, Nutrition, Medicine all rolled into one like a coconut. It has so a lot of parts all are useful in some form or other. The references create this indisputable and cannot just say it is not worth it. Thousands of researchers cannot be wrong when there is EVIDENCE BASED RESEARCH. Ultimately so much is COMMON SENSE. A lot of of these awesome properties of plants are also in Ayurveda though that is a topic of a various book. Plant based diets support in prevent, treat and reverse leading causes of deaths. Dr. Greger uses powerful proof in going through leading causes of death. Dr. Esselstyn already proved it for heart disease. That alone is sufficient for people to change. This book cements the idea further. If this book CANNOT convince you, I am not sure WHAT WILL? The everyday dozen, part of the second half gives recommendations for fruits and vegetables. Example, gives info where to obtain Medjool dates or mangoes and when/where to buy. . An incident involving durian will give you a amazing laughter. Also has a little section on organic vs. non-organic food. The author has a amazing sense of e conclusion has a touching story. It will move one the method it is written. There is a section at the end on taking supplements. The elusive B12 story and facts. There are over three thousand (yes 3000+) of references at the end to solidify the fact that all the discussions are reference based and not just some opinion. One thing I am not sure is how I obtain those references. Are they behind walls, are they in libraries? There are some references that are hyperlinked and that is fine. But there are a lot of medical journals and publications. I should do more research in case I have to search them once I begin geeking out.Dr. Greger advocates versus heavily processed foods that take away rich nutrients and adds chemicals and non-natural stuffs. I was a vegetarian for life but had lot of junk meal like fries, chops. Then I transitioned to a vegan lifestyle 5 years ago, still consumed lot of crap junk food. Then a year back I switched to a predominantly whole meal plant based inspired by giants in this field including Dr. Greger’s videos and never felt better in my life. I lost few pounds but my morning bathroom routine is easier than ever. Stomach feels light. Pant size has shed 3 sizes from 34 to 31. I am feeling the best in my mid-40s.If you read this far and love how meal can support your health and (environment and animals), do check out the books in my library/audio book collections. These reaffirm and create it concrete why a whole meal plant based diet is scientifically proven to be THE BEST for us. ENJOY YOUR NEW FOUND HEALTH.1. Dr. Thomas Campbell, MD and Dr. T.

    How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease [Book]  2017-12-17 18:0

    This is the best book on the science of nutrition that I have read in years. On the one hand, it's a huge 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 huge 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 info and the reading experience are excellent, which is a strong combination that is not often so, this is really two books in one: In addition to the first section, which discusses how not to die from fifteen key diseases that are closely linked to diet, the second section--which comes with its own introduction and conclusion--details the recent science on the health benefits of eleven extra foods, plus exercise. I search it exceedingly useful to have these snapshots of the science on these foods at my fingertips, and once again, detailed scientific info is packaged in eminently readable l in all, I agree with the Cleveland Clinic's Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, from the book jacket: "An absolute rhapsody of informational wisdom on how to achieve a life of health and longevity without disease."

    The How Not To Die Cookbook: Over 100 Recipes to Help Prevent and Reverse Disease []  2019-12-25 18:41

    My first "read-through" of this (beautiful) recipe book left me feeling a small "bi-polar".I'm a Mid-Westerner, so about 1 out of 10 of the ingredients were stuff I'd never heard of before...let alone ever used before. So, most of the recipes looked difficult to me.On the other hand, I need this book. I'm a leukemia survivor, and I've been researching nutritional means to reduce the odds of relapsing. Dr. Greger's work (and the website) is the best of all the sources on science-based nutrition out there. There are a few decades of nutritional science development...AND... in recipe development that come together here in this the book 2 days ago and I've tried a couple of smoothies and they were method better (nutritionally and flavor wise) than my usual "random" smoothies. I've never had "bean" dishes that were other than just BEANS (butter beans OR pork-n-beans)...so the 2 bean-based dishes I've tried so far were beautiful special.I'll be "walking" my method through every one of the recipes in this book...(trying to bring my wife on-board).

    I'm a huge fan of Dr Greger and am thrilled about this fresh cookbook! The day it arrived, I read it from beginning to end and could hardly wait to obtain in the kitchen to test the recipes. You might wish to begin by preparing a batch of the Savory Spice Blend from page 4, as a lot of recipes call for this. It's simple and tasty. Create additional and give some away with a copy of this book as a attractive gift! Even non-vegans will have fun the tasty recipes. Just finished making the Harissa (pg 9), though I left out the nutritional yeast and spice blend just because Harissa is not traditionally cheesy-tasting and, depending on what else you might be serving from this cookbook, you run the risk of related seasonings, but it would be delicious either way. I love Harissa, and this is so delicious that I could just sit down and eat the whole batch, but I'm restraining myself because it will be served tonight over the Bean Patties, along with the Roasted Caulflower with Lemon Tahini sauce (can hardly wait: the sauce is yummy!). I have also created the Indian-style spinach and tomatoes, though I didn't purée the spinach and I added cannellini beans to create it one-dish meal, and it was quick, easy, and full of flavor. The Golden Quinoa Tabouli was another champion - the avocado adds the excellent amount of moisture and creaminess to this dish. This cookbook does not require anything beyond very primary cooking skills, though a meal processor is essential for some of the recipes. A high-speed blender will also come in handy; invest in the best one you can afford, as the finished product will be MUCH better. I always create my own soup stock, and can hardly wait to test the vegetable broth in this cookbook, which wastes none of the vegetable goodness. One of the issues with a lot of vegan cookbooks is that coconut oil is a frequent ingredient, especially in desserts, and sometimes in huge amounts; for those of you who don't believe that coconut oil is healthy, you'll be thrilled to search that it isn't used at all in this book. I'm sure that eventually I'll create my method through every recipe in this fabulous cookbook - I hope you love it as much as I do!Just tried the Curried Cauliflower Soup - delicious! Making the vegetable broth is also very easy, and it's faster than making stock the regular method because there is no pressing of the cooked vegetables; just blend it all up. Full of flavor.

    How Not to Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-22 1:10

    I saw that film Forks Over Knives and I really wanted to like the whole eating program.I obtain that we don't need to be eating all this chicken, pork, and meats.I obtain most of what this Plant based diets is about.But when they begin saying you can't eat olive oil, or coconut oils, flaxseed oils.. when its ok to eat Genetically modified grains, drink things with BPA and water with Chlorine, Bromine and Fluoride; when its ok to eat things loaded with sugar ( as if the Sugar industry does not have an agenda & it knows it is killing people ) . . ... I am so out of is diet is like a cult.. and anyone who gets in their method and their agenda will obtain run over.I will take the best of both worlds, concentrate on the plant based organic veggies and fruits, but I will add some amazing oils, and some pasture raised eggs, pasture range chickens and pasture raised meats, or wild caught salmon.. I don't eat enough of it to worry about Mercury..But this diet is an agenda.. and it is its own religion.. and I wish no part of sides I worried, I stressed for a few days about this eating program. I was seriously stressed because it just didn't sit well. There was no peace about it. The numbers didn't add I asked the Author who made the foods, Who created the ancient grains, Who told us its ok to eat fruits veggies, range critters of a certain type ~ avoid the bottom dwellers in the ocean that suck up all the garbage that lands on the ocean floor like shrimp and scallops and that kind of thing; don't eat pork because pork is just an unclean meat; A medical student did research & autopsies as part of his training and found that even if a porker is organic, medical tests and autopsies present that trichinosis still shows up in the cadavers of every human that eats pork, but it does not present up in Jews or Muslims who do not eat , I asked the Author and I came away with its ok to eat a small range grass fed meat. Its ok to eat a small grass fed range poultry, Its ok to eat grass fed range eggs;What is not ok is milk. Humans do not need milk.I asked and I immediately had a sense of peace, that its ok to eat the foods that God has provided.."For every monster of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving."Clean foods .. that is..I will eat my olive oil, coconut oils, flaxseed oils.. and have fun them. . without this false agenda;The Bible actually talks about this .. about the false teachers that will come along " false teachers would preach versus eating beef as versus eating pork or shellfish."This book would create a amazing fire starter, its so thick it will burn for days. But, It is going back to Amazon.I am not interested in this cult agenda.

    How Not to Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-22 1:10

    How Not to Die is a unbelievable read and reference book. Fans of Dr Greger's famous website, , will not be disappointed. Having worked with him closely for the latest 4 years, I will assure you his find for as he calls it, an evidence-based diet, trumps any ideology labels that might be tossed his way. Create no mistake about it, he is an advocate of increasing whole plant meal in the diet, but he's in no method blinded by it. On more than one occasion we've exchanged fresh journal articles only to step back and question - do we believe this because it is real or because it is a attractive story? He is driven to seek out the evidence no matter where that respond might e book is stuffed with references (148 pages!) for the person that wants to dig deeper, but in a style that has become uniquely his, Dr Greger uses quoted language from the papers to give an unitimidating explanation of the science contained within. He has a knack for picking out key sentences and graphs that strike at the very heart of the journal article relavence. He stands almost alone in a mass media that can't seem to obtain past the catchy titles, abstracts, and carefully worded, often misleading conclusions. HNTD is not an academic tome or textbook. Not only does it read with ease it is pushed along with his witty e first 15 chapters (how not to die from..cancers, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, etc..) are arranged based on simple to recognize conditions and though they are similar can be read completely independent from one another. The reader will obtain a more complete picture from the often conflicting problems of business, government and meal marketing, but it's presented in a language that is anything but activist. Within each chapter there are practical examples of how to obtain the benefits seen in the literature into your everyday routine. The book doesn't follow a chronology, so I found myself flipping through an early review copy reading little sections at a time. I often was so caught up in the section that reading would continue past what I originally had searched.I search it refreshing that he's not afraid to take on all the alternative cleanse, detox, blood type, etc... famous narratives that seem to come along with any alternative to traditional pharmacological/surgical/symptom mitigating famous approach. He doesn't give in to gluten or coconut oil just because it is famous or profitable and while some might search it frustrating, he sticks to the entire body of evidence not the recent single study. His appendix on supplements is completely on point. There is no evolutionary excellent diet and if one chooses to limit certain elements, like animal products, there are important steps that should be taken to avoid problems down the ly, his "Daily Dozen" is a amazing put to start implementing the notice of bountiful health he enjoys teaching to anyone that will listen. These chapters start with a summary box (exercise, nuts and seeds, herbs and spices, berries, etc..) of exactly what to do and how often. These are everyday habits that can obtain one moving in the right direction. Diet is habit not genetic and his easy steps aret a amazing method to create fresh habits stick. There are a couple of amazing recipes (the back of the book isn't cooking - it's science references). I created Eight Check Tag Pesto when first flipping through the book. I liked his ver of Dr Klaper's caesar.I am 6 years into this life experiment and I've never felt better. The standard western diet and the cyclic fad repackaging of the latest century's meal of affluence dominates most discussion, funded research, restaurants, and meal advertising. There's more spent than ever on wellness and yet we've never been more overweight or sick. Those contradictory facts don't lie. In spite of all the economic momentum for more profitable and famous food, each year hundreds of articles surface on the benefits of adding more plant-based nutrition to one's diet for health and Dr Michael Greger seems to search them all. For that we should all be grateful. You won't be disappointed in this book. Everyone will learn something.

    I started with the audio book and after that I had to the paper book so that I could highlight and tag up all the awesome points. I love that the latest 1/6 of the book is citations of the studies and articles he pulled his info from so I can reference the source. Some people complained about his voice and the method he reads/speaks but I found it interesting and engaging. I have since sent this book as bonuses to all of my family and a lot of mates to share this bonus of health. I feel awesome now following his everyday dozen recommendations and my meal is so much more flavorful with all the fresh spices and herbs.

    How Not To Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-20 0:4

    I like to the approach of actually looking at scientific studies and a lot of info given here is interesting, although of course a lot of suggestions seem fairly obvious. I also especially like the second part of book, where Dr. Greger talks about the foods he recommends and why. He writes with so much enthusiasm that it is hard not to agree that home-dryed mangoes with chia seeds must be the most delicious thing in the world. I would probably never be able to incorporate all of these rules into my everyday life (90 minute a day of moderate sports - 10,5 hours a week for both me and my husband - is this even possible without quitting work or neglecting the children?), but still, a lot of of the approaches seem like amazing ever, the scientific background of the book was less satisfying. As a scientist and medical doctor, I had the feeling that in spite of accusing the meal industry of cherry picking studies to help their sales, I felt that the author was doing some of the same thing here. Of course, he says that he has a huge research squad working for him but I seriously doubt that his employees would happily pull out the one study that contradict Dr. Greger's beliefs. A lot of of the studies were rather small, some even had an anecdotal hero and most of them were not double-blind (although I obtain that this is hard to do in dietary research). Also, I found that some of the info given was wrong from a medical point of view, even dangerously so. For example, after giving a grueling and very impressive private example of a patient dying from metastatic lung cancer, we learn that plant-based diets containing lots of antioxidants should support in this disease. Indeed, antioxidants may prevent the development of cancer, yet a number of recent, highly ranked studies have uniformly shown that in metastatic disease, antioxidants boost cancer cell survival and thus enhance metastasis (I tried to place a link here the study but Amazon told me I cannot add URLs). There was even a human study in 1996 which had to be called off with lung cancer patients because the ones receiving the antioxidants were dying faster - published in the Fresh England Journal of Medicine, so kind of hard to overlook ("Effects of a Combination of Beta Carotene and Vitamin A on Lung Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease")!Another part that struck me as rather limited view of things was the paragraph on fish oil. Perhaps there is no direct result on cardiac disease, but it has been shown a lot of times that cutting fish completely from one's diet leads to higher rates of depression. At the same time, Omega-3-fatty acids are one of the only remedies that modify the onset and progression of chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. So again, it is worth looking beyond what is written in this book!Also, the view on diabetes is, in my opinion, problematic. Dr. Greger claims that type II diabetes is caused beautiful much exclusively by insuline resistance: "The insulin deficiency disease is called type I diabetes and the insuline-resistance disease is called type 2 diabetes". This completely oversimplifies the disease and is only real for early-stage diabetes type 2, for at later stages patients have lost a significant amount of beta cells and not enough insuline can be produced any more. He mentions the word lipotoxicity but omits talking about glucotoxicity - namely the toxic effects of high glucose levels on the pancreatic beta cells. Thus, treating hyperglycemia (with drugs, if necessary) is not just a treatment of the consequences of diabetes but may also halt diabetes progression, as has been shown in innumerable publications for both lifestyle modifications and drugs. Also, recommending a plant-based diet which may contain a huge fruit platter in the morning could cause patients glucose levels to skyrocket and thus hurt more beta cells (I cannot corroborate his observation that eating fruits does not lead to an increase in blood sugar - I recently saw a patients shoot up to 400mg/dl after eating a pineapple). So again, read this with caution!!I could go on with more examples such as these but that is not the point of this review. What I wish to say is that as with most books that claim to know the absolute truth, particularly the formula that will work for everyone and create everyone better, it is necessary to bear in mind that for all the research that has gone into this text, this book is strongly biased towards the theory it wants to prove. I am sure that following the dietary tipps will support a lot of people but the truth about our nutrition, if there is one, may not be discovered by reading and relying on this book alone!

    I bought this book in January 2016, after hearing an interview with Dr. Greger on a podcast. At first I found it hard to read, but not because it difficult or confusing, but because it was changing everything I thought I knew about food. I had lost 45 lbs already by eating "healthier."I stopped reading about 1/3 method through and then continued my "healthy lifestyle." This included lots of prepackaged "health" foods and shakes. Lots of sugar and oil March of 2016 I started to obtain a rash on my face. Psoriasis. I've never had it before but it quickly spread to other parts of my body. By May 2016 I was miserable with my rash and still sitting at 204 lbs, despite my healthy lifestyle and consuming 1500 calories a day.I decided something must be going on in my body, why was it attacking itself? Why wouldn't my psoriasis clear up, despite the creams my doctor prescribed?I went back and started the book "How Not to Die" again in late May 2016. By Mid June I had fully adopted his diet and now in September 2016 I will never look back. I'm down 30 more lbs, my skin is finally clearing up, and I have so much energy!This book has changed my life and my only want is it cost less so I could a copy for all of my friends!Update: 7/2017I've been eating this method for a year now and I could never go back. I'm 36 and feel better than I ever did in my 20's. I'm down over 50lbs in a year- see modernize pic below!

    How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease [Book]  2017-12-17 18:0

    Being familiar with Dr. Michael Greger’s web website and the audio talks I knew the material would be good, but wondered about its readability. It was a pleasant surprise to search the book an enjoyable read, it does not read like typical medical literature. He finds ways to create nutritional info interesting and humors: “Want fries with That Lipitor?”. And even when covering a topic I’d normally consider to be dry, like oxidative stress, he adds metaphors and keeps the topic easy and most every page has one or more references to nutritional or medical studies, making it one of the best health oriented book's in modern history. All too often health specialists are offering unsubstantiated, pseudo, outdated claims which only confuse the public. Finally we have a book which gives us the facts and the references to prove the claims. And Dr. Greger keeps the experience impartial and gets right to the most pertinent nutritional facts early and often. For example: “the twenty-year old from the 1990’s might live ten of those years with chronic disease, whereas now it’s more like thirteen years with heart disease, cancer, diabetes, or a stroke.” When you sit back and consider that fact along with “our genes often acc for only 10-20 percent of risk at most.”... both quotes (above) reference a study. So being ignorant or procrastinating our nutritional health is just like giving yourself a 13 year prison sentence. So we can be a prisoner in a broken-down body, or be worry and have fun amazing health in our later years.I'd consider myself to be nutritionally informed, but this book repeatedly adds fresh and surprising facts. For example what are some of the reasons the meat industry adds salt to its products? And what includes more salt, a huge McDonalds fry or a chicken breast? You might search it surprising that “between the ages of twenty and fifty, the greatest contributor of sodium to the diet is chicken” and the meat industry can increase the weight of meat by as much as 20% simply by adding salt, which allows the meat to retain more water. Other troubling qualities for people are the addictive qualities of sweet and salty foods, which keeps us coming back for more and how it promotes high blood e book covers a lot of topics, one of these being the barriers which has hindered widespread knowledge of these facts. Most of us were raised eating a dysfunctional diet, and needlessly suffered as a result. While there is nothing we can do to change the past, it’s inspiring to see how quickly our bodies can readjust and heal. My own private experience with diet mirrors the material written in this book, and it’s necessary to understand a quality diet is going to create you feel so much better. I lost weight without effort when converting to a vegetarian diet (several years ago), but the real power of diet is revealed when you begin to increase the amount of new fruits and vegetables in your diet. Energy levels skyrocket, and probably the most revealing health attribute (skin tone) can radically improve. It’s somewhat common for strangers to give you a second glance, their expression appears to imply: “this person looks different”, as a person over the age of 35 rarely radiates amazing health. In youth a person may give the false impression of amazing health, but this quickly and needlessly fades when eating the SAD.If you’re planning to change your diet, I’d recommend keeping a easy journal so you can track things like: mood, appearance, skin tone, pain, weight, worry (relating to not good health) mental clarity and of course health statistics like cholesterol. It's learning to create enjoyable, healthy foods, along with awareness of our progress which will turn your plan into a life-long would not be a surprise to see the authors victory a Nobel Prize in literature for this book. A amazing read and so required for the average person struggling to heal or wishing to get optimal health. A huge thanks to MG and team!

    The How Not To Die Cookbook: Over 100 Recipes to Help Prevent and Reverse Disease []  2019-12-25 18:41

    Over the past three weeks, I've created 19 of these recipes, and 17 of those were the best tasting meal I've ever eaten. I will create them again and again. The other two recipes were ok, and I will create them again but with some modifications. I am enjoying using this cookbook more than any other of the 40 cookbooks I own.I've been eating a whole plant meal diet, off and on for nearly 20 years, but had been preparing meal very simply, plainly. Sometimes the taste was so boring that I frequently was tempted to step over to the dark side of the standard American diet.Even though I was familiar with and had used all the ingredients that are used in this book's recipes, it was still well worth buying this book to learn ways to combine those ingredients, and to see how the ingredients are measured for better taste and for an perfect understanding of ways to apply Dr. Greger's heavy amount of info on a everyday might be possible to garner this knowledge from a lot of sources on the internet, but this book makes it simple and less time consuming to learn. I would recommend this book to everyone.I saw a review that said all these recipes used the same ingredients, and when I first perused this book I had the same thought. But after making a significant number of these recipes, I noticed that all the new meal in my house is being used before it rots, even though the meal I prepare doesn't taste the same from one food to the next, from one day to the next nor even from one week to the is book deserves the highest praise because it simplifies the complexities of getting the important whole foods that taste good, on a everyday basis without new meal waste.Edited on 09/15/2018 to add:Some negative reviewers say Dr. Greger had nothing to do with this cookbook because Robin Robertson wrote it. Those reviewers obviously never bothered to read and use this cookbook, and this is how I know:- I wanted more recipes like the ones in this cookbook, so I bought two of Robin Robertson's cookbooks. I found that the recipes in her own cookbooks do not follow Dr. Greger's teaching due to the use of oil, salt, soy sauce, refined sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup, alcohol, vegan bacon and vegan cheese. The recipes in this cookbook follow Dr. Greger's teaching and you can use the find engine on NutritionFacts to prove it.- Robin Robertson made these recipes for Dr. Greger, based on his work. His followers will recognize his special voice in the notes on the recipe pages. I frequently use this cookbook, and I know that all of these recipes follow exactly what he teaches, regardless of who made the is a list and the page numbers of my top MOST favorite recipes (and I haven't yet tried all the recipes in this book). The first 3 are included because they create a large difference when used in the other recipes:Savory Spice Blend page 4Nutty Parm page 4Vegetable Broth page 6 (there is no substitute for this)Burrito Breakfast Bake page 24 (excellent for any food at any time) (I LOVE THIS)Lemony Hummus page 33Summer Salsa page 41 (This is used in other recipes, but it's perfect by itself. It has become my favorite salsa recipe.)Kale & White Bean Soup page 48Spicy Asian Vegetable Soup page 52Vegetable & Red Bean Gumbo page 54Black Bean Soup with Quinoa & Kale page 56Three-Bean Chili page 64Black Bean Gazpacho Salad page 75Whole Wheat Pasta with Lentil Bolognese page 150 (I LOVE THIS)Yellow Rice & Black Beans with Broccoli page 152Arugula Pesto Pasta with Roasted Vegetables page 161Fresh Fruit Skewers with Blackberry Coulis page 192Banana-Chocolate Smoothie page 210V-12 Vegetable Blast page 219

    How Not to Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-22 1:10

    About 6 months ago I decided to eat a plant based diet because I had experienced the hell of gallstones and could no longer eat fat unless I wanted to keel over in pain for 6 hours. I am one of those people who has to be on my death bed before I go to a doctor and the thought of surgery was enough to obtain me to create this large change in my life. Although I wasn't eating meats or true fatty things, I was still using salt, sugar, olive oil, white flour,etc. I also smoked for 40 years but quit a month ago (thank you Chantix, yes it works). My sister turned me on to Dr Greger and I bought his book on Audible. I think he changed my life. He created me understand why a life style of whole plant based foods is the only method to live and why.Well, I listen to his book all the time. I sleep with it on and have it playing in the background instead of radio or TV. I can't say enough about it. In addition to loving the sound of his voice I'm blown away by the info I never knew that I didn't know. Such as: chicken & acceptable salmonella, the risk you taken when eating fish, all the studies he cites that I was never aware of explained in layman's terms as well as why its necessary to me.Anyway, I now place flax in my morning oatmeal & am actually eating fruit. He convinced me that everything I decide to eat is an opportunity vs a mindless nosh. Because of this man and his book I am getting more nutritional bang for my buck and am feeling great. I haven't had a single gall bladder issue and am exercising a lot more then I used to. He's making me actually have fun doing all this stuff. All I can really say is wow - obtain this book. FYI - I bought the hard cover as well as the audible so I had a printed reference at my finger tips.

    How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease [Book]  2017-12-17 18:0

    I've read a lot of books on eating whole foods, plant-based, and I am a graduate of the Cornell University program in Plant-Based Nutrition. And when I ordered this book, I thought it would be a rehash of a lot of things I already knew. But I was pleasantly surprised by how interesting the book was and about how down to earth it was. And it is truly based on science. There are 150 pages of referenced footnotes at the end of the book to indicate all of the scientific studies that back up what Dr. Greger is thing I like about this book is that it's written in two sections. The first section tells us how not to die from fifteen various diet-related diseases. The second section answers the question about what Dr. Greger eats every day. Imagine that! Somebody who writes about nutrition and even goes so far as to tell you what he himself eats! It takes the guesswork out of it.But I've also been intrigued by everything I've read in the book. I search it interesting and informative.Right from the first paragraph I was intrigued. I'm not going to say it's possible to live forever, but I did search the opening statement by Dr. Greger quite intriguing. He states: "There may be no such thing as dying from old age. From a study of more than forty-two thousand consecutive autopsies, centenarians -- those who live past one hundred -- were found to have succumbed to diseases in 100 percent of the cases examined....Most deaths in the United States are preventable, and they are similar to what we eat. Our diet is the number one cause of premature death and the number one cause of at's an awesome thought when you think about it. It makes me think of a 105 year old woman in my community who is a member of our Eat Intelligent Live Longer Club. She drives. She's a member of the Ballroom Dance Club. Sometimes, she'll be on the same equipment I'm using when I'm at the fitness center. And I suspect she will be outliving a lot of others in my community who are much younger.On page 265 of the book, there is this nugget: "Sometimes people's diets take on a religiosity of their own. I remember a man once telling me that he could never go plant-based because he could never give up his grandma's chicken soup. Huh? Then don't....I told him that enjoying her soup shouldn't hold him from making healthier choices the rest of the time."Don't we hear this all the time? We hear people say they could never give up their cheese for example. And what do we tell them? We tell them how poor dairy is to eat. But Dr. Greger suggests, I think, that we instead ask them what they do the rest of the time. Have your cheese, but what are you going to do with the other 95% of what you eat? And if you think Dr. Greger isn't talking about something like cheese when he refers to chicken soup, think again. He goes on to say "The thought of never having pepperoni pizza again somehow turns into an excuse to hold ordering it every week. Why not scale down or reserve it for unique occasions?"I personally actually started this way. I read a book titled VB6 by Tag Bittman. That book said to eat basically whole foods, plant-based or vegan for all but one food during the day. Then for that one meal, eat your favorite foods. That created sense to me because I never imagined that I could actually go vegan. That seemed like too tall of an for me. But by taking that approach, I finally did. And I think that's what Dr. Greger is saying too. Don't be so demanding on yourself that you discourage yourself from following this method of ere are hundreds of amazing reasons to read this book. So, if you haven't gotten this book yet, I highly recommend you do so.

    The How Not To Die Cookbook: Over 100 Recipes to Help Prevent and Reverse Disease []  2019-12-25 18:41

    I eagerly pre-ordered this six months ago, and have been anticipating its arrival since then. It's a attractive cookbook -- one that is sure to please both those who are fresh to vegan/plant-based eating and those who are already eating this a bit of background, I've been vegan for almost five years, but only read Dr. Greger's How Not to Die: Explore the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease earlier this summer. I loved that book and its focus on integrating research studies with practical tips, but had wished for more actual recipes. Enter this fresh cookbook . . . .The book is divided up into the following sections:* Easy Preparations -- contains ten recipes that are used as the basis for other recipes -- things like spice blends, almond milk, and vegetable broth* Breakfast* Snacks, Dips, and Spreads* Soups and Chilies* Salads and Dressings* Burgers, Wraps, and More* Very Veggie Mains* Bean Cuisine* Amazing Grains* Sides* Sweets* SipsAlso included at the end is a section that contains sample menus for two weeks of eating, as well as some kitchen prep tips. At the beginning of the book, Dr. Greger summarizes some of the more pertinent research from _How Not to Die_. After that, he also provides his list of the "Daily Dozen" -- the twelve foods he suggests we eat every day as a method to prevent heart disease, cancer, and other l of the recipes use a whole-foods, plant-based (WFPB) approach to eating, one that is related to the Forks over Knives, Engine 2, China Study, and Plant Pure Nation lifestyles. Sweetness comes in through the use of things like the dates in the Date Paste recipe and date sugar, and everything is also refined-sugar-free, oil-free, and salt-free, for those following an SOS-free diet. (Miso paste is used in a few recipes for salty flavor.) The only "unusual" ingredient that the recipes use is nutritional yeast, which you can here on Amazon. "Nooch," as it's nicknamed, imparts a cheese-like flavor to dishes, and is a amazing source of Vitamin B12 (if you the fortified ver of it), which plant-based eaters need to supplement with since plant foods don't include y of the recipes also include a side box that provides cooking/preparation hints or other info that is helpful in preparing the recipe. There are attractive full-color images -- which is one thing I always look for in cookbooks since they inspire me to cook -- for almost every recipe, except for the smaller things like in the "Simple Preparations" chapter. (See the two images for samples of what the pages look like.) The directions are also clear and simple to follow, and speak to the expertise of Robin Robertson, who developed the recipes. At the bottom of each page, there are also X's that tag off which of the Everyday Dozen foods that recipe e book itself is also wonderfully place together, with hardback binding and a lovey green binding that matches the cover of _How Not to Die_.It would have been nice if this had included the prep and cooking times for each recipe, but you can eyeball them and obtain an idea of how long each will take. Also, the voice/style of the writing is a small off to me; the headnotes to each recipe and the supplemental textboxes create it sound as if Dr. Greger made the recipes, but then is given to Robin though I've only had this for a day, I've created the Chocolate Oatmeal, the Black Bean Soup with Quinoa and Kale, and the Pumpkin Pie Smoothie. All three recipes came together quickly and easily, which is necessary when you're looking for fast, healthy meals. I'm looking forward to using this often, and know it will obtain a lot of use in my kitchen!Bon appetit!UPDATE ON 12-7-17: I noticed that a few reviewers have given this cookbook a negative review because it doesn't contain nutrition information, but the philosophy behind whole-foods, plant-based eating is that if you're eating healthy whole foods, you don't need to worry about calorie counts. I've been following this approach to my eating for a few years, and have been at a stable, healthy weight. While I agree that having this info would be useful, only two of the ten or so WFPB cookbooks that I own have that information, so it's not that unusual that Dr. Greger chose not to contain it.UPDATE ON 12-9-17: I've created a few more recipes this weekend, including the Almond-Chocolate Truffles and Black Bean Burgers pictured, and all have been so, I've noticed that some reviewers are worried about getting ahold of miso paste and nutritional yeast. If you can't search miso locally (it has to be refrigerated, so is harder to online), you can substitute tahini mixed with a bit of salt; the taste won't be quite the same, but it will add the salty flavor. For nutritional yeast, I've been buying Hoosier Hill Farm Nutritional Yeast Flakes, 1 Pound for the latest three years here on Amazon, and really like it. It stays new for quite awhile in the pantry. Hope that helps!UPDATE ON 12-24-17: I've been using this book non-stop since I got it, and continue to love it! This past week one of the recipes I created from it was the pasta with lentil sauce (see latest photo). I used pre-cooked lentils from Trader Joe's, and it came together so quickly and easily.UPDATE ON 5-6-18: I've been cooking a lot from this book, as well as other SOS-free cookbooks, and have lost seven pounds since January. It's been hard for me to lose weight, but really focusing on cooking without oil and eating whole foods has created a large difference.

    The How Not To Die Cookbook: Over 100 Recipes to Help Prevent and Reverse Disease []  2019-12-25 18:41

    I LOVE this cookbook. Seriously, if I were moving to a studio apartment and had room for just one cookbook, it would be this ter having learned from "How Not to Die" about the long-term health benefits of a whole plant-based diet, I ran into the challenges of how to cook in this fresh way. After all, it's not enough to just avoid meat, dairy, & processed foods. You need to obtain your complete nutrition. Before this cookbook came out, I was struggling to piece together recipes that I found online. The problem with that way was that (a.) I had no method of knowing whether the recipes I was selecting fit together to ensure that I was covering all my nutritional bases; (b.) it takes a lot of time to hunt down recipes online that are not only whole-food plant-based but also practical and tasty; and (c.) as a effect I found myself stuck in a rut, cooking the same dishes over and over. That's no good. A fresh method of eating needs to be fun in to sustain it over the long e "How Not to Die Cookbook" solves all of these problems. I cannot recommend it highly enough, and have purchased a copy for every household on my Christmas me things that I especially like about this cookbook:- It a wide dozens of nutritient-packed recipes. (Some cookbooks feel like "100 variations on quinoa salad." This one something for everyone.... even a vegan ver of Mac & Cheese.)- Every recipe I've tried so far is delicious. (Unlike my experience with a lot of other cookbooks, which are hit-and-miss).- The recipes I have tried are also are beautiful fast to prepare. (This is coming from someone who is used to cooking from scratch. People who are transitioning away from processed foods will have to hold in mind that cooking whole plant-based foods does require SOME time.)- Each recipe contains a photograph, and the images are beautiful. (This is helpful when choosing or cooking a recipe for the first time).- It's flexible. The authors encourage you to experiment with substitutions, and provide ideas in a lot of of the recipes for substitutions. This is helpful for people who don't like a particular ingredient that's called for, or simply don't have it on hand.- The beginning of the book contains instructions on how to create & shop huge quantities of the staple ingredients that are used in a lot of of the recipes (almond milk, vegetable broth, spice mix, etc.).- For those who haven't read "How Not to Die" but are interested in an evidence-based eating, the beginning of the book contains a summary of the most necessary findings from "How Not to Die."- In the back of the book there are complete food plans for two whole weeks, which really helps me to obtain a concrete picture of what complete nutrition looks like over the course of the day.- To create it easier to freestyle your meal-planning, each recipe comes with an easy-reference list telling you which of Dr. Greger's "daily dozen" foods the dish contains.

Wish a cookbook that features ingredients that are likely already in your pantry? Wish the recipes to be created of wholesome ingredients that are amazing for health and healing? Wish to eat dishes to satisfy your taste buds and don't create you feel like you are denying yourself in any way? If you answered yes to these questions this is the cookbook for you. I have not stopped using this book since I bought it. Recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, drinks, smoothies, spice blends, sauces & dips. I highly recommend the pumpkin pie smoothie.

    Allow me say at the begin that I love, love, love Dr. Greger and search him to be an inspiration. Like some of the other reviewers I was very disappointed to see that the recipes weren't Dr. Greger's but were by Robin Robertson. I pre-ordered the book and didn't pick up on that. Overall, I sadly don't search the recipes inspiring and haven't been tempted to create any. While I feel disloyal to Dr. Greger saying this, there are a lot better vegan cookbooks out there most especially the 2 by Angela Liddon. I'd recommend those instead.

    How Not To Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-20 0:4

    This book was recommended to me by my family practice doctor, and since he's not nuts I decided to follow up. Bottom line - there are lots of practical suggestions and takeaways here, and while it's a small on the rah-rah! side it seems fundamentally sound.Just the whole "better or worse" try is worth thinking about. No meal is "good" or "bad". For every choice between foods, one is generally better and one is worse. If you're choosing between Brussels Sprouts and Kale, well amazing for you. If you're choosing between sugar cubes and bacon, you might be in trouble. If you're choosing between bacon and broccoli, that's where the insights in this book might be is isn't a bossy book, or a meal-by-meal planner, or a detailed blueprint for building a fresh you in two weeks. It's more of a nutrition guidebook that alerts you to what's better and what's worse, and why. The whole setup of the book is designed to drive home this point. Part 1 is a survey of the fifteen most common disease complexes, with a discussion of how nutrition plays a role in causing or curing/reversing/preventing those diseases. It's a small over the top, (I'm not convinced Brazil Nuts are such a superfood), but the primary science seems sound and an excess of zeal in an author isn't especially harmful to a thoughtful rt 2 makes the same points, but from a various direction. In this section we identify a meal item, (say, lentils), and then describe everything they're amazing for. So, you can look at high blood pressure and read about all the foods that seem to support with controlling that condition, or you can look at flax seeds, and learn how helpful they are in addressing high blood pressure.I sort of read/skimmed the book and then returned to those parts that were pertinent to me. I didn't draw up a precise eating android game plan as part of that; I just created notes about what dietary changes might generally be amazing for me. And, I general attention to what created some foods better than others, for at all struck me as quite a nice payoff on my reading investment. It doesn't damage that Seger has a personable presence as an author, and is able to promote healthy eating without being just a salesman or cheerleader. There is enough of substance here, in terms of efficacy studies and the like, that the whole project seems just a bit more trustworthy than anything else I've encountered. A nice find.

    How Not to Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-22 1:10

    This book info the connection between our meal and a lot of diseases. I myself have prostrate cancer, scene 4 with bone metastasises. I was given less than a year to live at diagnosis. My conventional meds had stopped working, my cancer markers had steadily increased for the latest 4 months when I read this book. I followed the recommended diet of no more processed foods, no animal products, such as dairy, eggs and meats. This was a drastic change for me. Within about twelve weeks my five metastatic locations became inactive, my cancer markers returned to normal, my blood values returned to normal, my previous borderline high blood pressure became excellent. I feel good, I have no more pain and I look healthy. Personally I don't need any more scientific proof to tell me I am on the right track. Is it easy? .... No! But I have a five year old daughter and a wife, and i need to be here a small longer. I am not claiming I am cured. I continue my conventional treatments, but I am also changing my diet, and I have started a one hour per day exercise program. The method I understand things now, I see that we are giving ourselves these not good diseases, by eating items we aren't supposed to. In the process we are lining the pockets of some companies with billions of dollars. We have to understand that these industries are getting rich off our backs. I can only recommend reading this book, following the tip and if not saving your own life, at least you will create it a lot better.

    How Not to Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-22 1:10

    This book saved me from crippling diverticulitis, which at 32, had already robbed me of nearly 8 years of my life. The weirdest thing about fully plant-based eating is how horrifically extreme it seems before you attempt it, and how OBVIOUS it is after you've created the change. Faced with horrible pain associated with recurrent intestinal infections, I spent YEARS trying and failing on every fad quackpot miracle diet. GAPS, SCD, Paleo, AIP Paleo, FODMAPS. I tried every insanely expensive probiotic, and tried every fiber supplement. Despite spending thousands of dollars and every second of every day trying to heal myself, I was lucky to obtain two days a month where I felt even remotely like a person. Yet it wasn't until my weight declined to the point where I was faced with resection surgery and associated risk of a colostomy bag that I finally said "enough". This book found me just in time and I'm grateful every single day. It was definitely a process going from barely tolerating 10 grams of fiber everyday to eating upwards of 100 grams of unprocessed plant fiber, but I got there, and got my life back in the process. No pain. No constipation. No more flares. Of course my doctors and professionals mumble contemptuously when I show them this information, as if it were obvious but never presented to me because a life without bacon is no life at all. Sometimes, I obtain mad about losing a sizable chunk of the best years of my life to Western meal and medicine. Sometimes I obtain mad that all my mates and family thing I'm one of those crazy "vegan hipsters". I search the best remedy is just popping on one of Dr. Greger's Youtube vids and enjoying his positivity and enthusiasm for plant-based eating. Thank you Dr. Greger for all that you've done, and all that you continue to do!

    How Not to Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-22 1:10

    This book was recommended to me by my family practice doctor, and since he's not nuts I decided to follow up. Bottom line - there are lots of practical suggestions and takeaways here, and while it's a small on the rah-rah! side it seems fundamentally sound.Just the whole "better or worse" try is worth thinking about. No meal is "good" or "bad". For every choice between foods, one is generally better and one is worse. If you're choosing between Brussels Sprouts and Kale, well amazing for you. If you're choosing between sugar cubes and bacon, you might be in trouble. If you're choosing between bacon and broccoli, that's where the insights in this book might be is isn't a bossy book, or a meal-by-meal planner, or a detailed blueprint for building a fresh you in two weeks. It's more of a nutrition guidebook that alerts you to what's better and what's worse, and why. The whole setup of the book is designed to drive home this point. Part 1 is a survey of the fifteen most common disease complexes, with a discussion of how nutrition plays a role in causing or curing/reversing/preventing those diseases. It's a small over the top, (I'm not convinced Brazil Nuts are such a superfood), but the primary science seems sound and an excess of zeal in an author isn't especially harmful to a thoughtful rt 2 makes the same points, but from a various direction. In this section we identify a meal item, (say, lentils), and then describe everything they're amazing for. So, you can look at high blood pressure and read about all the foods that seem to support with controlling that condition, or you can look at flax seeds, and learn how helpful they are in addressing high blood pressure.I sort of read/skimmed the book and then returned to those parts that were pertinent to me. I didn't draw up a precise eating android game plan as part of that; I just created notes about what dietary changes might generally be amazing for me. And, I general attention to what created some foods better than others, for at all struck me as quite a nice payoff on my reading investment.

    How Not to Die is a unbelievable read and reference book. Fans of Dr Greger's famous website, , will not be disappointed. Having worked with him closely for the latest 4 years, I will assure you his find for as he calls it, an evidence-based diet, trumps any ideology labels that might be tossed his way. Create no mistake about it, he is an advocate of increasing whole plant meal in the diet, but he's in no method blinded by it. On more than one occasion we've exchanged fresh journal articles only to step back and question - do we believe this because it is real or because it is a attractive story? He is driven to seek out the evidence no matter where that respond might e book is stuffed with references (148 pages!) for the person that wants to dig deeper, but in a style that has become uniquely his, Dr Greger uses quoted language from the papers to give an unitimidating explanation of the science contained within. He has a knack for picking out key sentences and graphs that strike at the very heart of the journal article relavence. He stands almost alone in a mass media that can't seem to obtain past the catchy titles, abstracts, and carefully worded, often misleading conclusions. HNTD is not an academic tome or textbook. Not only does it read with ease it is pushed along with his witty e first 15 chapters (how not to die from..cancers, coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, etc..) are arranged based on simple to recognize conditions and though they are similar can be read completely independent from one another. The reader will obtain a more complete picture from the often conflicting problems of business, government and meal marketing, but it's presented in a language that is anything but activist. Within each chapter there are practical examples of how to obtain the benefits seen in the literature into your everyday routine. The book doesn't follow a chronology, so I found myself flipping through an early review copy reading little sections at a time. I often was so caught up in the section that reading would continue past what I originally had searched.I search it refreshing that he's not afraid to take on all the alternative cleanse, detox, blood type, etc... famous narratives that seem to come along with any alternative to traditional pharmacological/surgical/symptom mitigating famous approach. He doesn't give in to gluten or coconut oil just because it is famous or profitable and while some might search it frustrating, he sticks to the entire body of evidence not the recent single study. His appendix on supplements is completely on point. There is no evolutionary excellent diet and if one chooses to limit certain elements, like animal products, there are important steps that should be taken to avoid problems down the ly, his "Daily Dozen" is a amazing put to start implementing the notice of bountiful health he enjoys teaching to anyone that will listen. These chapters start with a summary box (exercise, nuts and seeds, herbs and spices, berries, etc..) of exactly what to do and how often. These are everyday habits that can obtain one moving in the right direction. Diet is habit not genetic and his easy steps aret a amazing method to create fresh habits stick. There are a couple of amazing recipes (the back of the book isn't cooking - it's science references). I created Eight Check Tag Pesto when first flipping through the book. I liked his ver of Dr Klaper's caesar.I am 6 years into this life experiment and I've never felt better. The standard western diet and the cyclic fad repackaging of the latest century's meal of affluence dominates most discussion, funded research, restaurants, and meal advertising. There's more spent than ever on wellness and yet we've never been more overweight or sick. Those contradictory facts don't lie. In spite of all the economic momentum for more profitable and famous food, each year hundreds of articles surface on the benefits of adding more plant-based nutrition to one's diet for health and Dr Michael Greger seems to search them all. For that we should all be grateful. You won't be disappointed in this book. Everyone will learn something.

    I saw that film Forks Over Knives and I really wanted to like the whole eating program.I obtain that we don't need to be eating all this chicken, pork, and meats.I obtain most of what this Plant based diets is about.But when they begin saying you can't eat olive oil, or coconut oils, flaxseed oils.. when its ok to eat Genetically modified grains, drink things with BPA and water with Chlorine, Bromine and Fluoride; when its ok to eat things loaded with sugar ( as if the Sugar industry does not have an agenda & it knows it is killing people ) . . ... I am so out of is diet is like a cult.. and anyone who gets in their method and their agenda will obtain run over.I will take the best of both worlds, concentrate on the plant based organic veggies and fruits, but I will add some amazing oils, and some pasture raised eggs, pasture range chickens and pasture raised meats, or wild caught salmon.. I don't eat enough of it to worry about Mercury..But this diet is an agenda.. and it is its own religion.. and I wish no part of sides I worried, I stressed for a few days about this eating program. I was seriously stressed because it just didn't sit well. There was no peace about it. The numbers didn't add I asked the Author who made the foods, Who created the ancient grains, Who told us its ok to eat fruits veggies, range critters of a certain type ~ avoid the bottom dwellers in the ocean that suck up all the garbage that lands on the ocean floor like shrimp and scallops and that kind of thing; don't eat pork because pork is just an unclean meat; A medical student did research & autopsies as part of his training and found that even if a porker is organic, medical tests and autopsies present that trichinosis still shows up in the cadavers of every human that eats pork, but it does not present up in Jews or Muslims who do not eat , I asked the Author and I came away with its ok to eat a small range grass fed meat. Its ok to eat a small grass fed range poultry, Its ok to eat grass fed range eggs;What is not ok is milk. Humans do not need milk.I asked and I immediately had a sense of peace, that its ok to eat the foods that God has provided.."For every monster of God is good, and nothing is to be refused if it is received with thanksgiving."Clean foods .. that is..I will eat my olive oil, coconut oils, flaxseed oils.. and have fun them. . without this false agenda;The Bible actually talks about this .. about the false teachers that will come along " false teachers would preach versus eating beef as versus eating pork or shellfish."This book would create a amazing fire starter, its so thick it will burn for days. But, It is going back to Amazon.I am not interested in this cult agenda.

    I started with the audio book and after that I had to the paper book so that I could highlight and tag up all the awesome points. I love that the latest 1/6 of the book is citations of the studies and articles he pulled his info from so I can reference the source. Some people complained about his voice and the method he reads/speaks but I found it interesting and engaging. I have since sent this book as bonuses to all of my family and a lot of mates to share this bonus of health. I feel awesome now following his everyday dozen recommendations and my meal is so much more flavorful with all the fresh spices and herbs.

    The How Not To Die Cookbook: Over 100 Recipes to Help Prevent and Reverse Disease []  2019-12-25 18:41

    I rarely cookbooks, but I love everything Michael Greger does, so I bought this one. I've created about ten of the recipes so far, and it is phenomenal. Kudos to Robin Robertson on the recipes because I will now be keeping the almond chocolate truffles, ranch dressing (was NOT expecting to search such a delicious, unobviously vegan ranch dressing recipe because believe me when I say I've been SEARCHING), and nutty parm on hand in my fridge from this day onward.Every ingredient used in this book is a "green light" food, meaning no oil or animal products or sweeteners beyond date sugar (which is just dried, ground dates with their fiber in tact), which means I can feel confident I'm making something 100% healthy when I cook from this book (unlike a lot of vegan blogs that require the use of a quarter cup of coconut oil in literally every recipe). I also love that there is just a handful of simple to make, frequently used stuff in the front of the recipe section, like the almond milk that I just created in under two mins and the spice blend about half the recipes call for that I was able to quickly compile from things in my cupboard. I don't like spending a lot of time cooking because I cook EVERY DAY, and these recipes have been unexpectedly fast and easy. I also like that the ingredients aren't hard to search (I did have to some goji berries on Amazon, but there are other whole meal plant-based cookbooks that call for very specific store-bought ingredients I'm not confident exist in my dimension -- I'm looking at you and your non-fat unsweetened soy milk, Dr. Esselstyn).Highly recommend, especially if you are trying to eat more vegan meals, incorporate more leafy greens into your diet, or curtail a sweet tooth with some delicious desserts.

    As I lay on the hard, cold operating table, waiting for the anesthetic to kick in for my colonoscopy (not routine but for symptoms, which I won't bore you with) it hit me...with all the testing, anesthesiologist, doctor appointments, etc,, this colonoscopy will cost the same as a cruise! For the same that would obtain me a week in the Caribbean sun, lying on deck of a cruise ship drinking margaritas, listening to reggae melody and watching the waves go by, I was going to obtain a lighted probe stuck up my butt. (I'm self employed, large deductible, so all medical care is essentially out of my own pocket). It was too late to bolt and run for the sea...I was stuck. But I pledged right then to take better care of my health, which would not only (hopefully) me from an early grave, but would my wallet from the death- grip of a hospital billing department....Enter Dr. Greger. I've been listening to his www service for awhile, and looked forward to the book, which did not disappoint. This book is spectacular. Very well and thoroughly researched, it touches upon the most dreaded diseases and causes of death (at least one will shock you!) and discusses how to avoid or conquer each in detail. While there are some recommendations specific to each disease, the discussion of each disease goes full circle to one powerful conclusion that is at the heart of this book - a whole foods, plant based diet is the plan humans were designed to follow. The closer we stick to that, the healthier we become, and the more our bodies revert to their natural state of robust health rather than the sickly, wimpy physiques resulting from the Standard American Diet (SAD). Our bodies were meant to be healthy, and this diet seems almost magical in its ability to cure sickness and restore us to our rightful state of long, healthy e books' greatest strength is the thorough and objective research combined with Dr. Greger's ability to break complex and extensive info down into a language that even those of us artsy types who tried to dodge science in school can understand. And he spices it up with delightful the end of the book you will be amazed and actually excited to reach for the salad, whole grains, fruits, beans, nuts, seeds, and then watch nature work her magic.

    How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease [Book]  2017-12-17 18:0

    I like to the approach of actually looking at scientific studies and a lot of info given here is interesting, although of course a lot of suggestions seem fairly obvious. I also especially like the second part of book, where Dr. Greger talks about the foods he recommends and why. He writes with so much enthusiasm that it is hard not to agree that home-dryed mangoes with chia seeds must be the most delicious thing in the world. I would probably never be able to incorporate all of these rules into my everyday life (90 minute a day of moderate sports - 10,5 hours a week for both me and my husband - is this even possible without quitting work or neglecting the children?), but still, a lot of of the approaches seem like amazing ever, the scientific background of the book was less satisfying. As a scientist and medical doctor, I had the feeling that in spite of accusing the meal industry of cherry picking studies to help their sales, I felt that the author was doing some of the same thing here. Of course, he says that he has a huge research squad working for him but I seriously doubt that his employees would happily pull out the one study that contradict Dr. Greger's beliefs. A lot of of the studies were rather small, some even had an anecdotal hero and most of them were not double-blind (although I obtain that this is hard to do in dietary research). Also, I found that some of the info given was wrong from a medical point of view, even dangerously so. For example, after giving a grueling and very impressive private example of a patient dying from metastatic lung cancer, we learn that plant-based diets containing lots of antioxidants should support in this disease. Indeed, antioxidants may prevent the development of cancer, yet a number of recent, highly ranked studies have uniformly shown that in metastatic disease, antioxidants boost cancer cell survival and thus enhance metastasis (I tried to place a link here the study but Amazon told me I cannot add URLs). There was even a human study in 1996 which had to be called off with lung cancer patients because the ones receiving the antioxidants were dying faster - published in the Fresh England Journal of Medicine, so kind of hard to overlook ("Effects of a Combination of Beta Carotene and Vitamin A on Lung Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease")!Another part that struck me as rather limited view of things was the paragraph on fish oil. Perhaps there is no direct result on cardiac disease, but it has been shown a lot of times that cutting fish completely from one's diet leads to higher rates of depression. At the same time, Omega-3-fatty acids are one of the only remedies that modify the onset and progression of chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. So again, it is worth looking beyond what is written in this book!Also, the view on diabetes is, in my opinion, problematic. Dr. Greger claims that type II diabetes is caused beautiful much exclusively by insuline resistance: "The insulin deficiency disease is called type I diabetes and the insuline-resistance disease is called type 2 diabetes". This completely oversimplifies the disease and is only real for early-stage diabetes type 2, for at later stages patients have lost a significant amount of beta cells and not enough insuline can be produced any more. He mentions the word lipotoxicity but omits talking about glucotoxicity - namely the toxic effects of high glucose levels on the pancreatic beta cells. Thus, treating hyperglycemia (with drugs, if necessary) is not just a treatment of the consequences of diabetes but may also halt diabetes progression, as has been shown in innumerable publications for both lifestyle modifications and drugs. Also, recommending a plant-based diet which may contain a huge fruit platter in the morning could cause patients glucose levels to skyrocket and thus hurt more beta cells (I cannot corroborate his observation that eating fruits does not lead to an increase in blood sugar - I recently saw a patients shoot up to 400mg/dl after eating a pineapple). So again, read this with caution!!I could go on with more examples such as these but that is not the point of this review. What I wish to say is that as with most books that claim to know the absolute truth, particularly the formula that will work for everyone and create everyone better, it is necessary to bear in mind that for all the research that has gone into this text, this book is strongly biased towards the theory it wants to prove. I am sure that following the dietary tipps will support a lot of people but the truth about our nutrition, if there is one, may not be discovered by reading and relying on this book alone!

    Every single chapter is amazing. This is the most brilliantly written cookbook I've come across yet. It's packed with compelling nutrition information, not to mention the yummy recipes. So far, all of the dishes prepared have been a smash, though there are a few were I increase the amount of sauce or dressing (like the Golden Quinoa Tabouli, which is the excellent summer salad). What's more, the pictures are gorgeous! As a physician, I'm ordering another copy to have in my waiting room.

    The How Not To Die Cookbook: Over 100 Recipes to Help Prevent and Reverse Disease []  2019-12-25 18:41

    Dr. Greger turned me into a vegetarian and then a vegan after following his website. His first book How Not to Die is unparalleled in the nutrition literature. The book is so necessary anyone who is not familiar with the facts in this book, cannot consider themselves literate in the 21st century. Some of the criticisms listed so far in the Amazon reviews are fair esp. not listing the nutrition content of each recipe. Regarding complaints over the a lot of ingredients in the recipes, any vegan cook already knows that most vegan recipes have a lot of ingredients and becoming a vegan cook does require some ingredients never found in carnivore cooking. Vegan cooking is definitely not for lazy cooks or for people who don't like to cook. Personally, I love to cook, love to search fresh recipes and search that very easy recipes lack the complexity of really amazing dishes.I found it interesting that Robin Robertson's contributions to the book are not highlighted in the preface or anywhere in the book except on the cover where she is credited for writing all of the recipes. I am not sure that all the recipes were written by her given Dr. Greger's comments on a lot of of the recipes. Another criticism from a diffenent reviewer cites the difficulty in having to create certain prepared blends, like the Savory Spice Blend, Umami Sauce and Date Syrup, that are used repeatedly in the recipes. I am looking forward to incorporating these into my cooking and, unlike a previous reviewer, I appreciate their inclusion. Vegan cooking avoids using premade, processed ingredients and does not rely on a large slab of meat, potatoes and canned green beans to constitute a meal. Again vegan cooking is completely various from the cooking most of us in the U.S. grew up on. And thank goodness now that we know how disease inducing the Standard American Diet really is.I am just beginning to incorporate some of these recipes into my diet so I cannot comment on specific recipes yet. I did search one error in a recipe: Mango-Avocado-Kale Salad with Ginger-Sesame Orange Dressing. No sesame seeds are mentioned in the list of ingredients. I am always on the look out for fresh salad dressing recipes and would love to know the amount of sesame seeds required for this is cookbook is really beautifully photographed and created to latest a lifetime. Dr. Greger's contributions to the health of people on this planet is certainly amplified by his fresh book and he deserves much praise.

    I bought this book in January 2016, after hearing an interview with Dr. Greger on a podcast. At first I found it hard to read, but not because it difficult or confusing, but because it was changing everything I thought I knew about food. I had lost 45 lbs already by eating "healthier."I stopped reading about 1/3 method through and then continued my "healthy lifestyle." This included lots of prepackaged "health" foods and shakes. Lots of sugar and oil March of 2016 I started to obtain a rash on my face. Psoriasis. I've never had it before but it quickly spread to other parts of my body. By May 2016 I was miserable with my rash and still sitting at 204 lbs, despite my healthy lifestyle and consuming 1500 calories a day.I decided something must be going on in my body, why was it attacking itself? Why wouldn't my psoriasis clear up, despite the creams my doctor prescribed?I went back and started the book "How Not to Die" again in late May 2016. By Mid June I had fully adopted his diet and now in September 2016 I will never look back. I'm down 30 more lbs, my skin is finally clearing up, and I have so much energy!This book has changed my life and my only want is it cost less so I could a copy for all of my friends!Update: 7/2017I've been eating this method for a year now and I could never go back. I'm 36 and feel better than I ever did in my 20's. I'm down over 50lbs in a year- see modernize pic below!

This book found me just in time and I'm grateful every single day. It was definitely a process going from barely tolerating 10 grams of fiber everyday to eating upwards of 100 grams of unprocessed plant fiber, but I got there, and got my life back in the process. No pain. No constipation. No more flares. Of course my doctors and professionals mumble contemptuously when I show them this information, as if it were obvious but never presented to me because a life without bacon is no life at all. Sometimes, I obtain mad about losing a sizable chunk of the best years of my life to Western meal and medicine. Sometimes I obtain mad that all my mates and family thing I'm one of those crazy "vegan hipsters".

The reader will obtain a more complete picture from the often conflicting problems of business, government and meal marketing, but it's presented in a language that is anything but activist. Within each chapter there are practical examples of how to obtain the benefits seen in the literature into your everyday routine. The book doesn't follow a chronology, so I found myself flipping through an early review copy reading little sections at a time. I often was so caught up in the section that reading would continue past what I originally had searched.I search it refreshing that he's not afraid to take on all the alternative cleanse, detox, blood type, etc... famous narratives that seem to come along with any alternative to traditional pharmacological/surgical/symptom mitigating famous approach. He doesn't give in to gluten or coconut oil just because it is famous or profitable and while some might search it frustrating, he sticks to the entire body of evidence not the recent single study. His appendix on supplements is completely on point. There is no evolutionary excellent diet and if one chooses to limit certain elements, like animal products, there are important steps that should be taken to avoid problems down the ly, his "Daily Dozen" is a amazing put to start implementing the notice of bountiful health he enjoys teaching to anyone that will listen. These chapters start with a summary box (exercise, nuts and seeds, herbs and spices, berries, etc..) of exactly what to do and how often. These are everyday habits that can obtain one moving in the right direction. Diet is habit not genetic and his easy steps aret a amazing method to create fresh habits stick. There are a couple of amazing recipes (the back of the book isn't cooking - it's science references). I created Eight Check Tag Pesto when first flipping through the book. I liked his ver of Dr Klaper's caesar.I am 6 years into this life experiment and I've never felt better. The standard western diet and the cyclic fad repackaging of the latest century's meal of affluence dominates most discussion, funded research, restaurants, and meal advertising. There's more spent than ever on wellness and yet we've never been more overweight or sick. Those contradictory facts don't lie. In spite of all the economic momentum for more profitable and famous food, each year hundreds of articles surface on the benefits of adding more plant-based nutrition to one's diet for health and Dr Michael Greger seems to search them all. For that we should all be grateful. You won't be disappointed in this book. Everyone will learn something.

    How Not to Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-22 1:10

    I bought this book in January 2016, after hearing an interview with Dr. Greger on a podcast. At first I found it hard to read, but not because it difficult or confusing, but because it was changing everything I thought I knew about food. I had lost 45 lbs already by eating "healthier."I stopped reading about 1/3 method through and then continued my "healthy lifestyle." This included lots of prepackaged "health" foods and shakes. Lots of sugar and oil March of 2016 I started to obtain a rash on my face. Psoriasis. I've never had it before but it quickly spread to other parts of my body. By May 2016 I was miserable with my rash and still sitting at 204 lbs, despite my healthy lifestyle and consuming 1500 calories a day.I decided something must be going on in my body, why was it attacking itself? Why wouldn't my psoriasis clear up, despite the creams my doctor prescribed?I went back and started the book "How Not to Die" again in late May 2016. By Mid June I had fully adopted his diet and now in September 2016 I will never look back. I'm down 30 more lbs, my skin is finally clearing up, and I have so much energy!This book has changed my life and my only want is it cost less so I could a copy for all of my friends!Update: 7/2017I've been eating this method for a year now and I could never go back. I'm 36 and feel better than I ever did in my 20's. I'm down over 50lbs in a year- see modernize pic below!

    How Not to Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease []  2020-1-22 1:10

    I like to the approach of actually looking at scientific studies and a lot of info given here is interesting, although of course a lot of suggestions seem fairly obvious. I also especially like the second part of book, where Dr. Greger talks about the foods he recommends and why. He writes with so much enthusiasm that it is hard not to agree that home-dryed mangoes with chia seeds must be the most delicious thing in the world. I would probably never be able to incorporate all of these rules into my everyday life (90 minute a day of moderate sports - 10,5 hours a week for both me and my husband - is this even possible without quitting work or neglecting the children?), but still, a lot of of the approaches seem like amazing ever, the scientific background of the book was less satisfying. As a scientist and medical doctor, I had the feeling that in spite of accusing the meal industry of cherry picking studies to help their sales, I felt that the author was doing some of the same thing here. Of course, he says that he has a huge research squad working for him but I seriously doubt that his employees would happily pull out the one study that contradict Dr. Greger's beliefs. A lot of of the studies were rather small, some even had an anecdotal hero and most of them were not double-blind (although I obtain that this is hard to do in dietary research). Also, I found that some of the info given was wrong from a medical point of view, even dangerously so. For example, after giving a grueling and very impressive private example of a patient dying from metastatic lung cancer, we learn that plant-based diets containing lots of antioxidants should support in this disease. Indeed, antioxidants may prevent the development of cancer, yet a number of recent, highly ranked studies have uniformly shown that in metastatic disease, antioxidants boost cancer cell survival and thus enhance metastasis (I tried to place a link here the study but Amazon told me I cannot add URLs). There was even a human study in 1996 which had to be called off with lung cancer patients because the ones receiving the antioxidants were dying faster - published in the Fresh England Journal of Medicine, so kind of hard to overlook ("Effects of a Combination of Beta Carotene and Vitamin A on Lung Cancer and Cardiovascular Disease")!Another part that struck me as rather limited view of things was the paragraph on fish oil. Perhaps there is no direct result on cardiac disease, but it has been shown a lot of times that cutting fish completely from one's diet leads to higher rates of depression. At the same time, Omega-3-fatty acids are one of the only remedies that modify the onset and progression of chronic inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis. So again, it is worth looking beyond what is written in this book!Also, the view on diabetes is, in my opinion, problematic. Dr. Greger claims that type II diabetes is caused beautiful much exclusively by insuline resistance: "The insulin deficiency disease is called type I diabetes and the insuline-resistance disease is called type 2 diabetes". This completely oversimplifies the disease and is only real for early-stage diabetes type 2, for at later stages patients have lost a significant amount of beta cells and not enough insuline can be produced any more. He mentions the word lipotoxicity but omits talking about glucotoxicity - namely the toxic effects of high glucose levels on the pancreatic beta cells. Thus, treating hyperglycemia (with drugs, if necessary) is not just a treatment of the consequences of diabetes but may also halt diabetes progression, as has been shown in innumerable publications for both lifestyle modifications and drugs. Also, recommending a plant-based diet which may contain a huge fruit platter in the morning could cause patients glucose levels to skyrocket and thus hurt more beta cells (I cannot corroborate his observation that eating fruits does not lead to an increase in blood sugar - I recently saw a patients shoot up to 400mg/dl after eating a pineapple). So again, read this with caution!!I could go on with more examples such as these but that is not the point of this review. What I wish to say is that as with most books that claim to know the absolute truth, particularly the formula that will work for everyone and create everyone better, it is necessary to bear in mind that for all the research that has gone into this text, this book is strongly biased towards the theory it wants to prove. I am sure that following the dietary tipps will support a lot of people but the truth about our nutrition, if there is one, may not be discovered by reading and relying on this book alone!

Not sure i would like to be on that hat type of work that Dr G does.I like taking care of he living and trying to saving lives, However, if i was ever to have an autopsy she would be the onei would like on my case. She really cares about her patients and families. In which i don't really think most Dr in that positioncares like she does

Her compassion is evident in her seeking to give comfort and closure to surviving families. Her knowledge is impressive even while explaining everything medical in ways we can all understand and never in a condescending way. I highly recommend this book to those who honestly want to improve their health and who wish to understand why and how our behaviors can do us in.

    Summary of How Not To Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease By Michael Greger MD [Book]  2018-3-18 18:2

    This is a short summarization of the healthy living nonfiction book, How Not To Die. It includes the primary facts and need-to-know information from the book, without lengthy explanations or overwhelming scientific jargon, and it gets across the point of a 576 page book very nicely in only 40 pages. This was a fast read, and surprisingly it was quite informative, to the point of recommending various foods and herbs for various disorders and sometimes even giving the suggested dosage. It is a stand-alone book, and does not need to be read alongside Dr. Michael Greger's How Not To Die, although for those interested in reading the complete book it includes a link to e basis of both books is that by living a healthy lifestyle, eating a proper diet, exercising regularly, and staying away from doctors as much as possible, you can live a longer and more fulfilling life. Each chapter is dedicated to a various common "killer", including heart disease, cancers, brain diseases, infections, High Blood Pressure, diabetes, suicidal depression, Parkinson's, kidney disease, and a lot of more. Each chapter discusses what causes the disease, how to avoid it, and how to prevent and possibly cure it.I liked a lot of what I read in this book... however, I have two issues with it that knock my rating down a star. I disagreed with Dr. Greger's pro-vaccination and anti-animal products views. As one respected nutrition writer once said of this book, "Greger cherry-picked scientific studies to help his main thesis, and thus understated the beneficial effects of moderate meat and seafood consumption." However, because I learned useful info from this book and agree with the majority of it, I would still give this book four stars.

    Product recommended for adults, parents who are seeking concise and do-able guidelines for healthy diet and lifestyle. 90% focused in on diet, the remainder on other obvious lifestyle choices (avoid smoking and smoke, avoid alcohol excess, be more physically active). The criticism of this concise work may be in the lack of specific scientific references. However, this book is a definite positive choice to improve health that is of commercial biases. Given the plethora of studies and the inertia of actual private change in diet to improve one's health and the health of children, this is highly recommended exactly for its conciseness and practicality of suggestions. Those who wish more strict dietary regimens and wish to sift through mountains of scientific data, well, look elsewhere.

    I read the original work few years ago, and stumbled upon this book by chance, and I really liked it. It's the excellent summary of the book. And that book is the most comprehensive book on health and nutrition that I've read. Written in a method that's simple to understand for those fresh to the subject, but also substantive enough that those very familiar with health and nutrition will learn a amazing of fresh information. If you're still eating the standard American diet, or if you've been mislead by one of the a lot of fad diets out there (or meal industry obfuscation), read this book to learn how to eat healthy, avoid disease, feel your best, and maximize longevity. Highly recommended!

    How Not To Die With True High-Dose Vitamin D Therapy: Coimbra’s Protocol and the Secrets of Safe High-Dose Vitamin D3 and Vitamin K2 Supplementation []  2020-1-17 20:5

    This book is a must read for everyone taking vitamin K2. I started taking K2 about 2 years ago. The product I am taking also contains K1. I was thrilled when my bones went back to normal but hat I also noticed was that my vita D turned out too low plus my Blood clotted too om this book I learned why these things are happen and I learned how to fix my ry well written. Don’t think there is another book out there which addresses how Vita K, D and calcium works together plus addressing the dangers that can happen by dosing a I would say, this book also lists and explains the optimal blood try readings.I just bought another copy to give away to a friend. It’s a must read.

    The book explains, like no other, the treatment with high doses of vitamin D3. To understand in depth the Coimbra's protocol, the author analyzes the biological and pathological bases to establish the foundation of the treatment. It does not leave any concept without understanding. The author of this book reveals an enormous capacity and enormous humility and ank you very much, Tiago
