“This book may help those who are susceptible to illnesses that can be prevented.”—His Holiness the Dalai Lama
“Absolutely the best book I’ve read on nutrition and diet” –Dan Buettner, author of The Blue Zones Solution
From the physician behind the wildly popular NutritionFacts website, How Not to Die reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.
The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, Dr. Michael Greger, the internationally-renowned nutrition expert, physician, and founder of NutritionFacts.org, examines the fifteen top causes of premature death in America-heart disease, various cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's, high blood pressure, and more-and explains how nutritional and lifestyle interventions can sometimes trump prescription pills and other pharmaceutical and surgical approaches, freeing us to live healthier lives.

Hibiscus tea can work better than a leading hypertensive drug-and without the side effects. Fighting off liver disease? Drinking coffee can reduce liver inflammation. Battling breast cancer? Consuming soy is associated with prolonged survival. Worried about heart disease (the number 1 killer in the United States)? Switch to a whole-food, plant-based diet, which has been repeatedly shown not just to prevent the disease but often stop it in its tracks.

Uncover the evidence-based science to slowing the effects of aging, from the New York Times bestselling author of the How Not to Die series
When Dr. Michael Greger, founder of NutritionFacts.org, dove into the top peer-reviewed anti-aging medical research, he realized that diet could regulate every one of the most promising strategies for combating the effects of aging. We don’t need Big Pharma to keep us feeling young—we already have the tools. In How Not to Age, the internationally renowned physician and nutritionist breaks down the science of aging and chronic illness and explains how to help avoid the diseases most commonly encountered in our journeys through life.
Physicians have long treated aging as a malady, but getting older does not have to mean getting sicker. There are eleven pathways for aging in our bodies’ cells and we can disrupt each of them. Processes like autophagy, the upcycling of unusable junk, can be boosted with spermidine, a compound found in tempeh, mushrooms, and wheat germ. Senescent “zombie” cells that spew inflammation and are linked to many age-related diseases may be cleared in part with quercetin-rich foods like onions, apples, and kale.
Inspired by the dietary and lifestyle patterns of centenarians and residents of “blue zone” regions where people live the longest, Dr. Greger presents simple, accessible, and evidence-based methods to preserve the body functions that keep you feeling youthful, both physically and mentally. Brimming with expertise and actionable takeaways, How Not to Age lays out practical strategies for achieving ultimate longevity.
A vital, timely text on the viruses that cause pandemics and how to face them, by the New York Times bestselling author of How Not to Die.
As the world grapples with the devastating impact of COVID-19, Dr Michael Greger reveals not only what we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones during a pandemic, but also what human society must rectify to reduce the likelihood of even worse catastrophes in the future.
From tuberculosis to bird flu and HIV to coronavirus, these infectious diseases share a common origin story: human interaction with animals. Otherwise known as zoonotic diseases for their passage from animals to humans, these pathogens – both pre-existing ones and those newly identified – emerge and re-emerge throughout history, sparking epidemics and pandemics that have resulted in millions of deaths around the world.
How did these diseases come about? And what – if anything – can we do to stop them and their fatal march into our countries, our homes, and our bodies? In How to Survive a Pandemic, Dr Michael Greger, physician and internationally-recognized expert on public health issues, delves into the origins of some of the deadliest pathogens the world has ever seen. Tracing their evolution from the past until today, Dr Greger spotlights emerging flu and coronaviruses as he examines where these pathogens originated, as well as the underlying conditions and significant human role that have exacerbated their lethal influence to large, and even global, levels.
In the first book of its kind, Dr. Michael Greger draws together decades of research exposing the dangerous truth behind the low-carb lies. Carbophobia decisively debunks the purported "science" behind the low-carb claims, documents just how ineffective the Atkins Diet and other low-carb plans have been in producing sustainable weight loss, and lists the known hazards inherent to the diet. This is not a case of academic "he said/she said." This is a case of a multibillion-dollar corporation with a financial stake in ignoring all the current evidence-based dietary recommendations no matter what the human cost.
Um guia do poder dos alimentos que vai garantir saúde e bem-estar ao lado de sua família e amigos por muitos e muitos anos
Infecções, diabetes, depressão, cardiopatias. Seja qual for a doença, a rotina é a mesma: após exames e consultas, a maioria dos médicos se restringe a receitar um remédio ao paciente. Tratamentos alternativos não são mencionados, e medicina preventiva parece uma realidade distante. O resultado é que milhares de vidas são perdidas prematuramente em virtude de doenças que poderiam ter sido evitadas ou revertidas. Mas não precisa ser assim.
Escrito pelo médico Michael Greger, Comer para não morrer trata de um estilo de alimentação capaz de prevenir, controlar e até reverter muitas das principais causas de morte da atualidade: a dieta à base de vegetais — ou plant-based diet, como é conhecida pelos especialistas. Com uma linguagem clara e ferramentas práticas que nos indicam o que comer, quando e em que quantidade, o livro se fundamenta em estudos acadêmicos para desmistificar a ciência por trás dessa forma de nutrição revolucionária e mostra que adotá-la está longe de ser um bicho de sete cabeças.
Vom Aufbau eines gesunden Mikrobioms, über einen verbesserten Stoffwechsel mittels Chronobiologie, bis hin zum Einfluss von Gewürzen liefert Greger Tipps und wissenschaftlich belegte Techniken wie jeder mühelos sein Idealgewicht halten kann. Verabschieden Sie sich endgültig von Kalorienzählen und Verzicht. Michael Gregers Empfehlungen machen nicht nur schlank, sondern garantieren eine starke Gesundheit.
