  1. David

    This is an amazing book I am completely blown over by it Let me explain.This book is divided into three main parts In the first part, there are 15 chapters, one for each of the major afflictions that cause people to die In each of the chapters, Dr Greger explains the disease or affliction, and then describes the foods that have been found to reduce the risk, prevent, reverse, or cure the disease.The second part of the book devotes chapters to a number of healthy food groups Dr Greger explains wh [...]

    This is the most comprehensive book on health and nutrition that I ve read Written in a way that s easy to understand for those new to the subject, but also substantive enough that those very familiar with health and nutrition will learn a great deal of new information If you re still eating the standard American diet, or if you ve been mislead by one of the many fad diets out there or food industry obfuscation , read this book to learn how to eat healthy, avoid disease, feel your best, and maxi [...]

    I m going to start off this review by qualifying the perspective from which I read the book.I have a longstanding passion in all things health and fitness that started at the age of 10, when as a chunky child, I decided I wanted to be healthy.Joining my first gym at 13, it wasn t long until I started teaching group fitness A Bachelors in Nutritional Sciences seemed like the next logical step But it didn t end there While continuing to branch out by teaching every mode of group fitness I could fi [...]

    In the wake of my heart attack, my cardiologist told me that I could reverse my atherosclerosis with diet and exercise, specifically a plant based diet She recommended Dr Caldwell Esselstyn s book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease , which prescribes a very stringent diet, that not only forbids meat and dairy products, but also precludes all oils not a drop , as well as nuts, and avocados I didn t know if I could follow such a diet Besides, it s a diet that he gave to people who had significantly [...]

    Well this was a very interesting read Since I have been contemplating changes to my diet, it arrived on hold for me at the public library at an opportune moment I went shopping yesterday for esoteric items like hibiscus tea and ground flax seed and some less unusual items like walnuts, fruit vegetables.I m a believer in evidence and Dr Greger provides boat loads of that Now my task is to test these ideas with myself as guinea pig and see if they actually work for me I ve been controlling my blo [...]

    This book could be a life changer God knows I ve tried every diet known to man but becoming vegan never occurred to me I always thought it was of a lifestyle choice having to do with an affinity for animals rather than health based Read this and your eyes will be opened to a lot of things I ve long known the dangers of processed foods but always believed that meat and dairy were good for me I m going to try eating this way for a couple of weeks and see how I feel As soon as I finished this audi [...]

    Dr Greger works tirelessly, with his team, to scour the nutrition based medical literature published throughout the year so you don t have to Then he compiles these findings into informative videos that he makes available for free on NutritionFacts This book is based on the facts that he and his team have uncovered over the several years that they have been canvasing the latest nutrition science He has compiled it in an easy to read, and often humorous format All of the money that Dr Greger make [...]

  9. Yodamom

    Very interesting read I read part one a month or so ago The first part was filled with stories of bad health gotten better with diet changes, tests, studies and lies told to us by the media, publishers and officials.There is almost a nagging about vegan vegetarian life style Every health issue comes down to eat veggies, fruit, nuts beans Every chapter, ends this way It felt drilled, maybe because I m already a vegetarian it nagged me than I needed to hear I did learn a lot of new things from pa [...]

    One of the best books in the Why you should switch to a plant based diet group of books I have read Dr Greger has scientific information sited throughout and has made the info and writing easy and enjoyable to read At no time is he overly pushy or preachy He gives you the info and hopes you make the choice to change your diet He even sites incidents when he makes or has made choices that are not 100% perfect choices, but he would rather have you partially change than not at all.This is the book [...]

  11. Rebecca Montemurro

    This book changed my family s life My husband and I read it while on holiday in Florida Although not your typical beach read, we couldn t put it down By the second chapter, we completely cut meat out of our diet while on holiday and haven t looked back I feel energized and inspired for change The simple act of eliminating meat from your diet will reduce carbon emissions significantly, not to mention to health benefits The most important impact for me is preventing animal cruelty As a mother, how [...]

  12. Marjan

    This is a problematic book I support the cause and the motivation, but a lot of it is simply misleading The general tone of how not to die has so much western dualistic bias which supposes we are constantly at war with something disease, war, cancer, death, obesity, you name it while these things are equally part of life as their opposites We all have to die eventually, but please, not in denial.The second objective is the style, which is not only highly reductive read Whole by Colin Campbell to [...]

  13. Melissa

    This is the best, most comprehensive, and most reliably extensively cited book on diet and health I have ever read Rather than relying on just a few questionable studies the way most books on the topic do often, I might add, while seemingly purposefully misinterpreting the data from said studies , Dr Greger looks at the whole of nutrition studies published in English, explains typical and relevant ones thoroughly, and makes them understandable to anybody One great thing about this book is that i [...]

  14. Morgan Blackledge

    This book is an unflinching, fearless journey to the dark heart of one of our cultures most contentious and taboo subjects Food.It s not commonly recognized as such But in my experience, if you want to instigate a fractious argument amongst an otherwise civil group, about a topic that is is absolutely mired in superstition, opaqued by endless layers of literally centuries worth of misinformation, and of which people hold highly defended, deeply emotional, bizarrely irrational and literally deadl [...]

  15. Ann

    If it came from a plant, eat it If it was made in a plant, don t So says one source quoted in this amazing new bk I love this bk Loved the doc s practical writing style, often witty with straight forward advice It was like sitting down and having a chat with the guy, and he s even pretty funny at times Easy reading and just so darn fascinating I m totally health obsessed so this was right up my alley Sure we re all going to die but let s not purposely do it to ourselves with crappy food and inac [...]

  16. John

    A book written by the man that tells us one egg a week can give you diabetes His webpage nutritionfacts is interesting in that like his book and science this doctor has the answer and orders his facts along to meet with his preferred answer Just a note to be wary if new to this man Vegan facts are not facts as science views them Vegan facts are religious like in their fervor promoting ONLY their cause Everything the religion of veganism hates just happens to be cancerous Funny that I see the Chr [...]

  17. Erica

    Seriously, this is BS Ok, it s not He s not wrong, per se, but this is the type of advice that creates confusion and makes people sick, much like the Atkins Diet or whatever other faddish food advice comes along.So here s the thing Michael Greger wants everyone on a whole plant diet which is great Plants are good for us and we should all eat of them, especially if we eat hardly any at all, as Americans do, or don t, in this case But turmeric does not cure cancer and neither does broccoli and he [...]

    I flipped through those sections that interested me and all I got was eat veggies Repeat.I was hoping for something new and original not that I didn t expect the eat veggies and already do but original.

    Used to be vegan 16 years ago, and this book reaffirmed for me why I was so much healthier during that period I really appreciated reading about phytonutrients and learning why certain foods are so necessary to improving my health Reading this book has really made a big difference over the last several weeks with me incorporating a lot natural foods legumes, nuts, fruits, and vegetables into my diet again I feel much better I look forward to seeing how it impacts my labs in the future update de [...]

    5.5 stars I thought I should occasionally listen to something intelligent than YouTube s endless collection of scary stories, so I decided to check out this rather imposing book on audio CD and I m glad I did I already avoid meat, seafood, dairy, and eggs in my diet, but that doesn t mean that I don t stand room for improvement I ll put it this way I actually did a little dance in the grocery store aisle when I discovered that they were stocking the new vegan Ben Jerry s Not my finest moment Dr [...]

  21. Nancy

    I won this book in a giveaway.Eat fruit and vegetables Stay away from processed food and avoid fast food Common sense eating is the emphasis here.

  22. Mary Manahan

    Very concise summary of the latest scientific studies of benefits of a plant based diet Directly contradicts what Dr Perlmutter puts forth in Grain Brain It all seems to make sense, but what do I know It s so difficult to give up cheese Greger holds that all animal foods are to be avoided and backs it up with scientific data If you are going to read it, get the audiobook, or download it from your library You can listen to it while driving and doing chores Guess I m back to vegan.

  23. Lynne

    Excellent information in a down to earth format This was an extremely well researched book with practical advice on eating for chronic disease prevention As a dietitian, I really appreciate the scientific basis without any financial bias Following the advice in this book can have a huge impact on your quality of life.

  24. Simon Wiskowski

    This is very likely the most thorough, comprehensive, well rounded, honest, and impactful book ever written on the subject of human health This book presents, as Dr Greger states, evidence based nutrition guidelines This book should be required reading for every single literate human being

    Took my time reading this I have it on kindle, audible, and I bought the hard copy bc its that great It s the holy grail on nutrition and wellness I think Hopefully can do a real review soon I highly recommend it for everyone.Update because I never fully reviewed this and it should be reviewed This is a big book I takes a lot of time to get through it But, it is well worth it I had an acquaintance ask me today if I knew of a nutritionist She is trying to feel better, and it looking at nutrition [...]

  27. Andrew

    I first came across Dr Greger s work about 5 years ago through the brilliant educational non profit, NutritionFacts There s literally thousands of informative topics to sift through there, but they are probably best summed up through one of his year end medical presentations, such as Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death nutritionfacts video uproo Funny and packed with eye opening material, even just within the first 10 15 minutes It was information summarized in that presentation which steered [...]

  28. Liisa

    Since becoming vegetarian and later vegan, I ve also become quite the nutrition nerd It s something I find really fascinating and I ve relied on science to forget the myths we are brainwashed to believe in concerning meat, milk and eggs NutritionFacts is one the places where I had gathered my information, so I knew I would want to read the founder s, Michael Greger s, book at some point The time was now, and the book is fantastic Based on hundreds of scientific studies it s hard to argue against [...]
