<p><b>From the physician behind the wildly popular </b><b>NutritionFacts website</b><b>, <i>How Not to Die </i>reveals the groundbreaking scientific evidence behind the only diet that can prevent and reverse many of the causes of disease-related death.</b></p><p>The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. In <i>How Not to Die</i>, 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.</p><p>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.</p><p>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.</p><p>In addition to showing what to eat to help treat the top fifteen causes of death, <i>How Not to Die</i> 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.</p>

<p>"I read this book... it worked. My autoimmune disease is gone and I'm聽37 pounds lighter in my pleather." --Kelly Clarkson</p><p>Most of us have heard of gluten鈥攁 protein found in wheat that causes widespread inflammation in the body. Americans spend billions of dollars on gluten-free diets in an effort to protect their health. But what if we鈥檝e been missing the root of the problem? In <em>The Plant Paradox</em>, renowned cardiologist Dr. Steven Gundry reveals that gluten is just one variety of a common, and highly toxic, plant-based protein called lectin. Lectins are found not only in grains like wheat but also in the 鈥済luten-free鈥?foods most of us commonly regard as healthy, including many fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and conventional dairy products. These proteins, which are found in the seeds, grains, skins, rinds, and leaves of plants, are designed by nature to protect them from predators (including humans). Once ingested, they incite a kind of chemical warfare in our bodies, causing inflammatory reactions that can lead to weight gain and serious health conditions.</p><p>At his waitlist-only clinics in California, Dr. Gundry has successfully treated tens of thousands of patients suffering from autoimmune disorders, diabetes, leaky gut syndrome, heart disease, and neurodegenerative diseases with a protocol that detoxes the cells, repairs the gut, and nourishes the body. Now, in <em>The Plant Paradox</em>, he shares this clinically proven program with readers around the world.</p><p>The simple (and daunting) fact is, lectins are everywhere. Thankfully, Dr. Gundry offers simple hacks we easily can employ to avoid them, including:</p><ul><li>Peel your veggies. Most of the lectins are contained in the skin and seeds of plants; simply peeling and de-seeding vegetables (like tomatoes and peppers) reduces their lectin content.</li><li>Shop for fruit in season. Fruit contain fewer lectins when ripe, so eating apples, berries, and other lectin-containing fruits at the peak of ripeness helps minimize your lectin consumption.</li><li>Swap your brown rice for white. Whole grains and seeds with hard outer coatings are designed by nature to cause digestive distress鈥攁nd are full of lectins.</li></ul><p>With a full list of lectin-containing foods and simple substitutes for each, a step-by-step detox and eating plan, and delicious lectin-free recipes, <em>The Plant Paradox</em> illuminates the hidden dangers lurking in your salad bowl鈥攁nd shows you how to eat whole foods in a whole new way.</p>

<b>Combat chronic inflammation, ease over-stressed digestive and immune systems, and make better food choices with this easy-to-follow nutrition plan and cookbook<br /></b><br /> Inflammation in the body shows up in the form of aches, pains, digestive distress, skin rashes, and swelling, and can lead to arthritis, type 2 diabetes, food allergies, skin conditions, and weight gain. Inflammation can result from undiagnosed food allergies or an autoimmune condition, or a diet that contains lots of processed foods, sugar, and meat. <br /><br /> Adopting an anti-inflammatory diet can help. Health & wellness luminaries such as Dr. Oz, Michael Pollan, and Mark Bittman have all touted the benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet, and people are becoming increasingly aware of its benefits. Seattle nutritionist Michelle Babb lays out a sustainable diet plan that鈥檚 a snap to maintain鈥攊t's essentially a Mediterranean, or pescatarian, diet that increases the intake of plant-based foods. <br /><br /> With聽<i>Anti-Inflammatory Eating Made Easy</i>, you鈥檒l eat as much as you want, lose weight, and heal your body. And the great thing is that with this diet, you never go hungry! As long as half your plate is vegetables and fruit, and the other half is starch and fish, you may start to see health improvements in weeks once you adopt the diet.<br /><br /> Dramatic lifestyle changes can be difficult, but this easy-to-follow plan makes anti-inflammatory eating approachable, understandable, and delicious.
