Is your diet feeding or defeating disease? Forget everything you think you know about your body and food, and discover the new science of how the body heals itself. Learn how to identify the strategies and the dosages for using food to transform your resilience and health in "Eat to Beat Disease." We have 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. "Eat to Beat Disease" isn't about what foods to avoid, but rather is a life-changing guide to the hundreds of healing foods to add to your meals that support the body's defense systems, including: Plums, Cinnamon, Jasmine tea, Red wine and beer, Black Beans, San Marzano tomatoes, Olive oil, Pacific oysters, Cheeses like Jarlsberg, Camembert, and cheddar, Sourdough bread. The book's plan shows you how to integrate the foods you already love into any diet or health plan to activate your body's 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 Disease" explains the science of healing and prevention, the strategies for using food to actively transform health, and points the science of well-being and disease prevention in an exhilarating new direction-- Publisher's description.

Not pleased with this book's information at all.
1. it is written as though he is writing a dissertation with the knowledge that one knows all the medical knowledge and the medical names of all the conditions that the human body gets.

If you have a condition that requires some assistance - there is No method to looking up that condition to relate it to the disease. So if you have a specific ailment (ie. thyroid or arthritis) you can't look up in the glossary or index to find where to go! You have to read the entire book and 'research' throughout aaaaaaaaall the information provided. NOT user friendly.

2. The Large print of this book is difficult as the content refers to "this item" on page 260 and it is NOT the data you are looking for! But something entirely different and unrelated?!?
