Forget everything you think you know about your body and food, and discover the new science of how the body heals itself
There is no “magic pill” for any one disease, or for overall health and longevity. No single factor in our life is going to prevent sickness. But science now shows that we can boost our own defense systems, so the body will heal itself. These revelations tell us that we have radically underestimated our own power to transform and restore our own health.
The decisions you make three times a day, all 365 days a year, throughout your lifetime, offer big opportunities for you to stay healthy while enjoying a great quality of life. We live in a time of enormous scientific progress, so good health should be within reach of everyone. And yet millions suffer and die from chronic illnesses, even as high-tech treatments improve.
Of Chronic Diseases Are Preventable
Between the rising costs of healthcare, and an increasingly toxic and imbalanced environment, better health is an issue of equality that affects us all. We each need to do our part, and the best way to make the world a healthier place is to start with the choices you make for yourself and the people you care about. Let go of the idea that health is the absence of disease and start eating to beat disease every day.
Is Your Diet Feeding or Defeating Disease?
EAT TO BEAT DISEASE The New Science of How the Body Can Heal Itself empowers readers by showing them the evidence behind over two hundred health-boosting foods that can stave off cancer, reduce your risk of dementia, and beat dozens of avoidable diseases.
