5.0 out of 5 stars Evidence based, scientific brilliance!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 21 August 2020
If you're not familiar with Michael Greger, MD I urge you to take a little time to familiarise yourself with him and his brilliant work. You can check out his free web based info portal at - NUTRITIONFACTS.ORG
This is the fourth of his four books, of which I have all of the others and I can quite honestly say that collectively they have been life changing. Not only for me but for my family too. This book, whilst heavily laden with scientific information and statistics is an easily readable book, for ANYONE. Michael Greger, MD interlaces humour with facts that combine to make this tomb of just under 600 pages an enjoyable, fluid read.
Until November 2019 I ate very little else other than red meat, chicken eggs and dairy (copious amounts of whey). I trainined intensively and to a high level and thought I felt well...UNTIL, after watching a documentary on plant based eating, I decided to try a three month experiment of eating a 'vegan' diet. Now several months later I can not explain the tremendous difference in my energy levels and mental wellbeing. I feel fabulous. Like many people I probably felt low grade 'well' for most of my life, but if this becomes your norm, you're really missing out.
It really is possible to achieve optimal health through eating densly nutritious foods and the better our health...microbiome etc, the more of a chance our body has at fighting off harmful invasive pathogens in the forms of bacteria and viruses. We can either be intelligent about the things we choose to eat, or dig our own graves with our teeth.
I have worked extensively in mental health for 36 years, latterly at senior levels and have witnessed how transformative changes in nutrition can be. I guess the best proof you can obtain is by trying things out for yourself. Someone like Michael Greger only bases his facts on available evidence, all of which you can check out for yourself. This really could be a life changing book for those who choose to read it!
