How Not to Die

Michael Greger

Overview

Chances are you've been on a diet at some point in your life, or someone close to you has. Diet programs are everywhere, and many tout that within a few weeks you'll be able to drop amazing amounts of weight. But there's more to health than just a number on the scales. Research shows that what you eat has a lot to do with both your overall health and the length of your life. Changing your diet can protect you from ailments like heart disease and even cancer.

Michael Greger M.D. is a physician and author, and he's behind the popular site NutritionFacts.org. In his 2015 book, How Not To Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease, Greger delves into the science of exactly which diet can help you live longer. Using comprehensive scientific evidence, Gregor cuts through all the contradictory diet advice to give you a simple, actionable plan that could transform your life from the inside out.
