How not to Die takes us on an interesting and heart-felt journey into the world of health and nutrition. According to Doctor Gregor, making the right food choices can help us prevent and even cure some chronic illnesses. The best diet for our health is one that involves a daily intake of fruit and vegetables, as well as berries, seeds, dried fruit, and spices. When food is highly processed, it is stripped of essential nutrients which are replaced by enticing flavours and preservatives. By making the right changes to our diet, we could all live a happy, healthy life without illness. Doctor Greger’s aim is to inform and encourage people to make the necessary changes to their eating habits and above all, to take the approach that prevention is better than a cure.
