How Not to Die

What is the best thing that we can do for our Third Age? Focus on our health!

It’s not surprising that maintaining good health becomes an even greater priority as we age. But it’s also a time of hope and possibility for better health.  

Many chronic diseases that we’re taught to worry about become more common as we age, but that doesn’t mean we have to accept that decline in our health. 

Enter in the brilliant book How Not to Die. Written by Dr. Michael Greger, the physician behind the Nutrition Facts website, this book offers a wealth of science-backed guidance specifically aimed at helping older adults live longer, healthier lives.

Eating to Prevent and Reverse Disease

Moving more can be very beneficial for our health, but did you know that what you eat might matter more?

In How Not to Die, Dr. Greger examines heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson’s, high blood pressure, and more – and shows how lifestyle and nutritional changes can have a more significant impact than pharmaceutical and surgical approaches.

Nutrition and overall health should be treated offensively instead of defensively, as we have become accustomed to. Dr. Greger backs up his advice with strong scientific evidence, showing that you can prevent and treat chronic diseases with the right foods and lifestyle changes.

Which Foods Have an Impact

Within How Not to Die, you’ll get an outline of what to eat if you’re concerned about or have a family history of chronic illnesses. For instance, if you’re worried about high blood pressure, hibiscus tea can do more than many leading drugs. Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. And a whole-food, plant-based diet can stop heart disease in its tracks.

While you’ll be able to get guidance for the 15 top fifteen causes of death and what to eat (or avoid) to help prevent issues, you’ll also get Dr. Greger’s checklist of the twelve foods we should consume daily.

This practical guidance shows us the powerful benefit of certain foods as literal medicine for our bodies. You’ll learn how these foods nourish and protect our bodies, fueling us to live healthier lives.

The Bible of Health Eating

The thousands of five-star reviews (and Dan Buettner of The Blue Zones) love the practical and complete guidance in How Not to Die. This engaging book will change your mind about how to eat to fuel and protect your body – and your overall health.
