Publisher's Summary

The Sunday Times best seller.

Why rely on drugs and surgery to cure you of life-threatening disease when the right decisions can prevent you from falling ill to begin with?

How Not to Die gives effective, scientifically proven nutritional advice to prevent our biggest killers - heart disease, breast cancer, prostate cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes - and reveals the astounding health benefits that simple dietary choices can provide.

Based on the very latest scientific research, How Not to Die examines each of the most common diseases, chapter by chapter, to reveal what, how and why different foods affect us and how increasing our consumption of certain foods and avoiding others can dramatically reduce our risk of falling sick and even reverse the effects of disease.

With emphasis on individual family health history and acknowledging that everyone needs something different, Dr Michael Greger offers practical dietary advice to help you make valuable decisions about your diet in order to live a longer, healthier life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

should be posted to everyone to read

if you only read one book, make it this one. It might not make you change your diet, but it will certainly make you see what you eat in a new light.

Lifechanging

Pretty hard to fault. Not many books are literally life-changing, but this one is. This is not fluffy, hippy feel good stuff. it's hard science that spades on the facts until you would have to be a halfwit not to change the way you eat.

An entertaining encyclopaedia of nutrition

For someone who, back in my school days, was not able to digest any sort of scientific terms, this audiobook was suprisingly easy to listen to. Dr Greger is incredibly funny and it is a pleasure to learn from him. Not only can you find a lot of facts about nutrition, diet and all sorts of weird and wonderful scientific research, you can also laugh out loud.
I recommend this book to everyone who likes a bit of a fun fact and/or scientific research, to all the vegans or those advocating healthy eating, those who struggle with poor health, those who don’t want to age, those who want to have energy for their kids, the ones who consider food to be the best medicine and those who think modern medicine will help them out when they start aging. Anyone and everyone who cares about educating themselves even a tiny amount will enjoy “How not to die” because it is a brilliant book!
Thank you Dr Greger for your “labour of love”!

Empowers you

After listening, the average person will be incomparably more aware of diet and lifestyle choices that they can make, which can completely change their future well-being. Presented in an honest and friendly way, Dr. Greger does an excellent job of breaking down the science and translating it to an easily comprehensible form for someone with no medical or nutritional knowledge. The passion he has is very apparent. You can learn exactly how you can make changes, and enables you to make choices for a longer, healthier and happier life.

Great content amazing narrator!!

Dr Greger is an amazing narrator, so entertaining that I didn’t mind the dozens of times I was told to eat greens to cure everything! The content is also so rich (it doesn’t just tell you to eat your greens) there is lots of useful information about specific plants, spices, fruits. It was a delight! I will miss you Doc!

food for thought

I struggled through this one from time to time, with all the talk of death in the first section, & nutrition information that was at times contrary to what i have learned from other sources. Still, it's good (if not confusing and overwhelming) to get alternate information on the 'facts', & i will continue to endeavour to learn more.

Oversold vegan agenda

It’s a shame this author has oversold his agenda to hate all animal products. I’m sure there are many good facts in this book, however, to sell his message he quotes extreme circumstances and not “the normal”. Example, not all meat is covered in urine and faeces germs and not all pigs are raised in 6feet square pens. This creates mistrust for me now I am not sure what his real facts and exaggerated points are.
A fairer and less bias opinion backed by real facts would create more trust in the content for me. I am left uncertain of what to believe.
Also, most farmers I know care deeply about the well being of their animals from paddock to plate and are not the bullies this book depicts.
