Eat to Beat Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself (Hardcover)
Discover the new science of how eating can enable your body to heal itself from cancer, dementia, and dozens of avoidable diseases. Eat your way to better health with thisNew York Timesbestseller.
We have long radically underestimated our body's power to transform and restore our health. Pioneering physician scientist, Dr. William Li, empowers readers by showing them the evidence behind over 200 health-boosting foods that can starve cancer, reduce your risk of dementia, and beat dozens of avoidable diseases. This book isn't about what foods to avoid, but rather is a life-changing guide detailing the hundreds of healing foods you can add to your meals that support the body's defense systems, including:
Red wine and beer
San Marzano tomatoes
Cheeses like Jarlsberg, Camembert and cheddar
With Dr. Li's plan, the foods you already love can be optimized to activate your body's five natural health defense systems -- Angiogenesis, Regeneration, Microbiome, DNA Protection, and Immunity -- to fight cancer; diabetes; cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and autoimmune diseases; and other debilitating conditions.
Both informative and practical, Eat to Beat Diseaseexplains the science of healing and prevention, strategies for using food to actively boost health, and points the study of well-being and disease recovery in an exhilarating new direction.
