From the physician behind the wildly popular NutritionFacts website, 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.

Nathan Runkle
A compelling look at animal welfare and factory farming in the United States from Mercy For Animals, the leading international force in preventing cruelty to farmed animals and promoting compassionate food choices and policies.
 
Nathan Runkle would have been a fifth-generation farmer in his small midwestern town. Instead, he founded our nation’s leading nonprofit organization for protecting factory farmed animals. In Mercy For Animals, Nathan brings us into the trenches of his organization’s work; from MFA’s early days in grassroots activism, to dangerous and dramatic experiences doing undercover investigations, to the organization’s current large-scale efforts at making sweeping legislative change to protect factory farmed animals and encourage compassionate food choices.

But this isn’t just Nathan’s story. Mercy For Animals examines how our country moved from a network of small, local farms with more than 50 percent of Americans involved in agriculture to a massive coast-to-coast industrial complex controlled by a mere 1 percent of our population—and the consequences of this drastic change on animals as well as our global and local environments. We also learn how MFA strives to protect farmed animals in behind-the-scenes negotiations with companies like Nestlé and other brand names—conglomerates whose policy changes can save countless lives and strengthen our planet. Alongside this unflinching snapshot of our current food system, readers are also offered hope and solutions—big and small—for ending mistreatment of factory farmed animals. From simple diet modifications to a clear explanation of how to contact corporations and legislators efficiently, Mercy For Animals proves that you don’t have to be a hardcore vegan or an animal-rights activist to make a powerful difference in the lives of animals.

【Part 2】獨家「每日飲食十二清單」,教你食物該怎麼吃、該注意什麼

 作者進一步運用食療科學證據,融入日常生活飲食,歸納出「每日飲食12清單」,從挑選、保存到份量,全都公開不藏私;並釐清無麩質飲食、食用油、堅果的卡路里、水果果糖、基因改造食品等飲食疑慮。

 

豆類(一天3份)╱漿果(一天1份)╱其他水果(一天3份)╱

十字花科蔬菜(一天1份)╱綠色蔬菜(一天2份)╱其他蔬菜(一天2份)╱

亞麻籽(一天1份)╱堅果(一天1份)╱香料(一天1份)╱

全穀物(一天3份)╱飲料(一天5份)╱運動(一天1.5hr)

 

◎比處方藥還有效,完全無副作用,連醫生也不知道的蔬食抗病力:

˙殺死癌細胞又無副作用:植酸能夠阻斷血液供應,餓死癌細胞,更能讓癌細胞停止扮演癌細胞,回復到正常的健康狀態。

˙阻斷致癌物:癌細胞不會自然死去,還會不斷突變與分裂。薑黃素卻能活化「行刑酶」(細胞凋亡蛋白酶),從內部砍斷癌細胞的蛋白質,讓癌細胞自然分解。

˙逆轉遺傳性疾病:奈及利亞人是具有最多「阿茲海默基因」的人種,該國發病率卻是世界最低。這要歸功以低動物性脂肪、穀物和蔬菜為主的飲食。由此看來,飲食勝過遺傳。

˙減緩神經損傷的疼痛:二十一位忍受十多年神經病變痛苦的糖尿病患者,採用全食物蔬食的飲食後,其中十七名幾天之內就從痛苦中徹底解脫。

˙抗發炎、降低酸負荷與腎結石:蔬食飲食能夠鹼化腎臟與尿液,減少尿酸堆積,降低腎結石的發生。

˙降低氣喘發作率:飲食會影響氣管發炎的機制,蔬果的抗氧化物能用來對抗自由基,減低氣管過敏、收縮和生痰的現象。

 

◎還有這樣的專題報導,長知識又能活得更長久

˙吃白肉比吃紅肉危險,罹患大腸癌的風險增加兩倍?

˙採用低碳飲食,罹患心臟病與高血壓的風險卻提高?

˙麩質不是過敏元兇,無麩質飲食反而會讓腸道長壞菌?

˙冷壓初榨橄欖油的營養價值並不高?

˙一個危機四伏的後抗生素時代

˙睡多睡少都不好:睡眠時間與中風的關係

˙哪些食物可以提供高血壓患者額外的保護作用?

˙對攝護腺癌來說,最糟糕的食物與最好的食物

˙預防糖尿病,這些東西要多吃
