The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In How Not to Die, 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.

“Stop whatever you’re doing and buy this book. Not only does Dr. Michael Greger drop a metric f*ckton of evidence that a plant-based diet will save your damn life, he lays out the blueprint to make it happen. Dr. Greger shows us how regular folks can eat well and not get taken down by some totally preventable bullsh*t.” Thug Kitchen
How Not to Die is a fantastic read and reference book. Have worked with Dr Greger closely for the last 4 years.Make no mistake about it, he is an advocate of increasing whole plant food in the diet, but he’s in no way blinded by it. On more than one occasion we’ve exchanged new journal articles only to step back and question – do we believe this because it is true or because it is a beautiful story?He is driven to seek out the evidence no matter where that answer might lead.
