Die meisten aller frühzeitigen Todesfälle lassen sich verhindern - und zwar, so überraschend es klingen mag, durch einfache Änderungen der eigenen Lebens- und Ernährungsweise. Dr. Michael Greger, international renommierter Arzt, Ernährungswissenschaftler und Gründer des Online-Informationsportals, lüftet in seinem weltweit aussergewöhnlich erfolgreichen Beststeller das am besten gehütete Geheimnis der Medizin: Wenn die Grundbedingungen stimmen, kann sich der menschliche Körper selbst heilen. In How Not To Die analysiert Greger die häufigsten 15 Todesursachen der westlichen Welt, zu denen z. B. Herzerkrankungen, Krebs, Diabetes, Bluthochdruck und Parkinson zählen, und erläutert auf Basis der neuesten wissenschaftlichen Forschungsergebnisse, wie diese verhindert, in ihrer Entstehung aufgehalten oder sogar rückgängig gemacht werden können. Darüber hinaus erklärt er auf verständliche und enorm fesselnde, aber stets wissenschaftlich fundierte Weise, welche Lebensmittel besonders wertvoll und gesund für die verschiedenen Organe und Funktionen des menschlichen Körpers sind, und wie diese am besten kombiniert und verzehrt werden können. Sein "Tägliches Dutzend" fasst in einer so übersichtlichen wie praktischen Checkliste alle die Lebensmittel zusammen, die eine optimale Gesundheit unterstützen. Dieses Buch ist ein Muss für alle, die ihre gesundheitliche Zukunft selbstbestimmt und gut informiert in die eigenen Hände nehmen möchten.
