I’ve just got to share the latest book that I’ve come across on health and nutrition. It is called “How not to Die” by Dr Michale Greger. It advocates a plant-based diet cutting the refined and processed foods and goes through the main killers of modern society – from heart disease, to cancers etc. – explaining just how common foods help or hinder our well-being. And also how the aging process works and how foods can once again help or hinder that. I loved the free internet resources he provides and the on-going research that puts together information for the public. He makes so many interesting points – like doctors spend less than 1% of their time learning about diet and get paid for procedures and tests not people who get better. His own grandmother was about to die from heart disease and went on to live for another 30 years because of diet. It inspired him on the course he has taken. It is never too late to do the right thing for your body! So encouraging and refreshing compared to diet books that make healthy eating seem a chore.
