书籍简介:

From the physician behind the wildly popular website NutritionFacts.org, 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. The simple truth is that most doctors are good at treating acute illnesses but bad at preventing chronic disease. The fifteen leading causes of death claim the lives of 1.6 million Americans annually. This doesn't have to be the case. By following Dr. Greger's advice, all of it backed up by strong scientific evidence, you will learn which foods to eat and which lifestyle changes to make to live longer. History of prostate cancer in your family? Put down that glass of milk and add flaxseed to your diet whenever you can. Have high blood pressure? 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. In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, How Not to Die includes Dr. Greger's Daily Dozen — a checklist of the twelve foods we should consume every day. Full of practical, actionable advice and surprising, cutting edge nutritional science, these doctor's orders are just what we need to live longer, healthier lives.

书友短评:

@ barrstroud Might not be as mind blowing 4 months ago as for now, yet it's always a good thing my way is confirmed by authorities and supported by research. Stats are good, but the authors are too obsessed with them. Writing seems to be pale, dotted with unnecessary jokes. I'd regard it only as an clinical argumentation guidebook for plant based dietary. @ GW_Parables 出版社朋友批量寄过来..办事路上读的.黏黏糊糊似是而非..不太像受过训练的医生写的。他对有些疾病的理解实在是太浅显也许是故意降低身段骗骗读者。我也查不到作者的执业信息.他的核心观念是plant-based diet.其实这也没错在某些特定情况下是有益处的.写作手法就是营养学的研究压缩成简单的大白话然后cherry picking选择支持他的core philosophy的部分呈现给读者–studies show如何如何。美式流行书一般都是消遣看看..很多讲health的书作者连正经医生都不是..就自创各种奇葩流派..我邻居以前给我讲过..出版社的cash cow有几类书畅销不断..毕竟卖奥巴马传记永远没法break even..但我找不到具体的数据这个问题暂时搁置吧。以后查。 @ PreSSStart 出版社朋友批量寄过来..办事路上读的.黏黏糊糊似是而非..不太像受过训练的医生写的。他对有些疾病的理解实在是太浅显也许是故意降低身段骗骗读者。我也查不到作者的执业信息.他的核心观念是plant-based diet.其实这也没错在某些特定情况下是有益处的.写作手法就是营养学的研究压缩成简单的大白话然后cherry picking选择支持他的core philosophy的部分呈现给读者–studies show如何如何。美式流行书一般都是消遣看看..很多讲health的书作者连正经医生都不是..就自创各种奇葩流派..我邻居以前给我讲过..出版社的cash cow有几类书畅销不断..毕竟卖奥巴马传记永远没法break even..但我找不到具体的数据这个问题暂时搁置吧。以后查。
