“Your health is reflected in what you eat on a daily basis.”
Dr. Micheal Greger
Episode 36: Dr. Michael Greger, Author, How Not To Die
What leads us down our personal health path? Are we led down a predestined path of health issues (or non-health issues) through genetics and family history or is it just luck of the draw?
Dr. Michael Greger believes that 70-percent of what we eat can predict the outcome of our negative health issues and may also lead to health preservation. He believes that most premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet and lifestyle.
As the author of How Not to Die, a New York Times bestseller, Dr. Greger provides a wealth of information on how to potentially prevent and avoid chronic diseases. He talks about the importance of incorporating a plant and fruit-based diet that can provide powerful ingredients to prevent hereditary health issues from repeating themselves through a simple diet change.
Dr. Greger is also the author of Bird Flu: A Virus of Our Own Hatching and Acrophobia: The Scary Truth Behind America’s
Low Carb Craze. Dr. Greger is a graduate of the Cornell University School of Agriculture and Tufts University School of Medicine.
