Death in America is largely a food borne illness. Focusing on studies published just over the last year in peer-reviewed scientific medical journals, Michael Greger, MD offers practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse many of the top 15 killers in the United States. Dr. Greger has a unique way of addressing a serious topic in a way will make you laugh while you learn about amazing research that will have you wondering – why aren’t we hearing this in the media or from our doctors?
