How Not To Die
How Not To Die: Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease | Michael Greger, Gene Stone
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 lives.

DogMomIrene @Librariana 😂 it‘s vegan chocolate recipes! I‘m getting pretty excited about adopting a whole foods plant-based diet, but I was like I have to have chocolate options. 1mo

This was an interesting book. A lot of science. It‘s focus is American, I‘m Canadian so this is some disparity in regulations and FDA approvals here. But that‘s not the point, the point of this book is being vegan will save you from disease and early death. I‘m willing to make some changes to include the daily 12, but I‘m not sure full time vegan is in the cards.

Want to read a book that will transform your life? This one will. I picked it up this month, and it‘s has given me an amazing amount of information and the desire to do better for myself, by eating better.

I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. The science was a little dry in parts but I respect that this book is almost half made up of endnotes - it‘s really well researched and based in science! Now I‘m ready to make some dietary changes and I can‘t wait to get my hands on the cookbook!

Lesanne I thought this book was great!! 3y

I‘m not even past the introduction and already my PBJ sandwich and crisps wasn‘t looking very appetising 😂

Fascinating already ..
“This was my wake up call. I opened my eyes to the depressing fact that there are other forces at work in medicine besides science. The U.S health care system runs on a fee-for-service model in which doctors get paid for the pills and procedures they prescribe, rewarding quantity not quality”

I can walk the perimeter of my property three times on nice days to make a mile- but need ideas for rainy days when pain is higher to get moments of movement in. (It is supposed to rain every day this week) #bookfitnesschallenge
There is still time to join! See @wanderinglynn to join- there are prizes for additional motivation!

Drocchio03 Your body is the best workout equipment. Consider lunges, squats, pushups, etc. If you‘re looking for something more passive, consider chair yoga. There are great videos on YouTube! 4y
Chrissyreadit @Drocchio03 thanks! I can try chair yoga. You tube sounds like a good possibility- depending on satellite signal. I have severe arthritis in my knees so right now cannot do anything more than walking - getting up and down are the difficult moves 😫 4y
ravenlee I saw an easy (ish) arm workout - do sets of overhead presses, tricep presses, and bicep curls - as many reps and sets as you can to feel a slight burn, and with no weights. This is just the weight of your arms. At the end, hold your arms straight up in the air above your head for 30-60 seconds. It‘s harder than it sounds! Work up to several repetitions over a day. 4y

Kaye Do you have access to a local pool ? Our gym offers water aerobics for seniors with arthritis. Much easier to exercise in the water for your joints. 4y
Drocchio03 @Chrissyreadit ouch! I‘m sorry to hear. Def look into chair yoga; good for the mind and the body. Now fingers crossed you can get service! 4y
mabell What a pretty location to walk! 😍 4y
Chrissyreadit @Kaye unfortunately it is too pricey for me, and sometimes when I‘ve gone on the free day it was too cold for me. 4y

Kindle greeted me with How Not To Die last night. I combed through the comments and was pretty pleased, though I still won't buy it. We all die. One way or another. Life is great, but we all die. Sensational title, okay then.

JeannieReads I love this book. I totally hear you on the title, but it never fails to grab people's attention from it's spot on my bookshelf. It's a practical (and optimistic!) book about how plant-based nutrition can prevent and reverse the diseases and conditions that are our leading killers. 4y
shmreads @JeannieReads thank you for the heads up 😀 I'll probably get to it once I finish my current tbr pile 😁 4y

Even my doctor is surprised that “vegan” doesn‘t equal “health!” I knew I was in for a “eat better and exercise more” talk at my yearly physical today, but I was slightly surprised to see my cholesterol creep over the 200 mark.

So, time to start again. While you don‘t have to eat healthfully to be vegan, a whole-foods, plant-based diet has so many benefits. The tagged book is just one I‘ve read on the subject.

Sace I recently cut meat and dairy from my diet after my doctor put me on a statin (with my cholesterol UNDER 200.) I go back in October to see what my numbers look like. I hope I can get off the statin. I was vegan for about a decade and my numbers were great. I hope you can get your cholesterol under control! 4y
Cathythoughts That cholesterol is so annoying .. I feel for you. Mine keeps creeping up too. But I don‘t trust the medication .. so I try all alternative routes. Will investigate your book ! Good luck with it ! 👍🏻❤️ 4y
DivineDiana Here‘s to an even healthier you! I also feel healthy on my vegan diet, but my husband told me last night that I really should get a physical as it has been a long time since my last one. Can‘t help but feeling a little anxiety! (edited) 4y

The best way to minimize your exposure to industrial toxins may be to eat as low as possible on the food chain, a plant-based diet.
