Can one prevent and reverse deadly diseases through diet and lifestyle? What does science say? I think we can through: * Diet * Exercise * Sleep and Rest * Water * Attitude * Etc I'm really enjoying what "Dr. Michael Greger: "How Not To Die" | Talks at Google " has to say. "Discover the foods scientifically proven to prevent and reverse disease." "What to eat to add years to your life." What do you think?
Dr. Greger visited Google NYC to discuss his new book - How Not to Die. The vast majority of premature deaths can be prevented through simple changes in diet...

A healthy lifestyle is advisable, of course. Yet, if cancer or leukemia decide to hit you, then that's it. No diet or positive attitude can help you. If you're lucky, a radiation treatment and/or an operation can.

We should live a healthy lifestyle so that we can prevent serious diseases. It's an old saying: an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; an apple a day keeps the doctor away.

@1hopefulman As I've said, this doesn't apply to all diseases. You can eat apples until they come out of your ears, but this won't impress cancer.

I haven't yet listened to the clip, but a friend of mine was diagnosed with prostate cancer and now is cancer free due to a radical change in diet. No chemo, no radiation, just a plant strong diet, no sugars, no meat.

A healthy lifestyle is advisable, I suppose. As long as it doesn´t interfere with having a good life. And we must realise that we all must die.

Wouldn't a healthy lifestyle also give us more time to enjoy life? Someone said that he has no problem dying as long as he's not responsible for it.

Yes if we exercise and eat right we are suppose to have a longer life span.

Yes, we should do activity daily and not sit all day in front of the television or computer.

My daughter-in-law is under the care of a nutritionist in hopes of eliminating a variety of medical conditions from which she suffers. I was amazed to see her since she has eliminated foods that have proven to be toxic to her. She looks great and her health problems have diminished dramatically.

I always believe in natural healing. It takes discipline and of course prayers because only God gives the healing.

Me too! I do go to medical doctors when necessary but if I can deal with it naturally, I prefer that.

@1hopefulman I dread the bad side effects of synthetic medicine. Going natural is always the best option.

I have been listening to this and it makes me think again about becoming mostly vegan with animal protein as a special treat! Thanks for finding this

You re so right! "The world is facing an "unrelenting march" of diabetes which now affects nearly one in 11 adults, the World Health Organization (WHO) says."

I have a feeling that if we followed the suggestions we could reverse and prevent a lot, not everything but a lot.
