Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death – Dr. Michael Greger

Death in America is largely a food-borne illness. Focusing on studies published just over the last year in peer-reviewed scientific medical journals, Michael Greger, M.D., offers practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse many of the top 15 killers in the United States.

Dr. Greger uploads a new video every weekday to NutritionFacts.org, the first non-commercial, science-based website to provide free daily updates on the latest discoveries in clinical nutrition. Subscribe for free at http://bit.ly/nutritionfactsupdates.

Also, Dr. Greger went in further detail about the vast majority of premature deaths that can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle in his book, How Not to Die. He examines the causes of 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 would make you live longer.
