How Not to Die: Discover the Foods Scientifically Proven to Prevent and Reverse Disease by Dr
A New York Times bestseller, How Not to Die is a book that even the least health conscious individual will find interesting. Authored by the creator of nutritionfacts.org, Dr Michael Greger, this is not a preachy book but a passionate one born of the author’s own experiences and discoveries as well as peer reviewed scientific evidence that diet and lifestyle are our best bet against chronic illness and disease. Written with humour and divided into two parts, it covers the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of consuming certain foods to target and reverse illness. The message here is that disease is not only curable but preventable if we take the right measures.

Located in a “BioSecure Zone” that prohibits the use of harmful pesticides, genetically modified organisms and herbicides that generate land erosion or water pollution, the farm grow spirulina in drinking water filtered through lava rock and five percent ocean water pumped from a depth of 2000 feet below sea level which adds trace minerals and elements to the algae. The spirulina is dried in just 3-7 seconds using cold deep ocean water to provide de-humidification and less than one percent oxygen to preserve the phytonutrients, cartenoids, enzymes and antioxidants.
