An absolute rhapsody of informational wisdom on how to achieve a life of health and longevity without disease. ~ Caldwell B. Esselstyn, Jr. M.D., author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease

Recent reports and news are reinvigorating the case to review the benefits, for people and planet, of a mainly plant-based diet. So this April’s book lets us do just that. “How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease” by Gene Stone and Dr. Micheal Greger is celebrated as a recent, foundational – and best-selling – doorway to eating and living for your longest life.

If you’ve heard about so-called “Blue Zones” you’ll have an idea of where the inspiration for Dr. Greger’s work comes from. This is along the lines of what many now understand as the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle. You can read a short piece on his website, www.nutritionfacts.org, detailing some of this: What do all the Blue Zones have in Common?

Besides thousands of excellent reader reviews on Amazon many others have endorsed the book, including, His Holiness the Dalai Lama who writes: “This book may help those who are susceptible to illnesses that can be prevented.”

Dan Buettner, author of “The Blue Zones Solution” says, “Absolutely the best book I’ve read on nutrition and diet.”

And Dr. Dean Ornish, author of The Spectrum and Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease, writes: "The primary determinant of our health and well-being is what we eat and how we live. In this extraordinary and empowering book, Dr. Michael Greger explains why. Highly recommended."

Please join us to discuss “How Not to Die” by Gene Stone and Dr. Micheal Greger (Pan MacMillan 2017) on Sunday April 28 from 4:00-5:30 pm at a member’s private residence. Location and details will come in this month’s email reminder. Remember to email bookclub@moscowfood.coop to receive reminders about the Good Food Book Club.
