New book – How not to die

September 16, 2015

Hi all,

It has been a very long time but I think I am ready to start gathering more interesting whole-foods plant-based and healthy living information and sharing it here.  Even if it is purely for my own amusement, however I do hope you find it useful too.

This great book is going to be launched in December 2015 and is available for pre-order.

Anatomy of how not to die

Great information produced by Dr Greger from nutritionfacts.org

Fiber

April 10, 2011

Fiber is a very important component of your diet.  It is essential for a healthy digestive system.  You can only find fiber in plant-based foods.

Fiber lowers the risk of certain cancers (e.g. colon cancer, rectal cancer), lowers the risk of heart disease, lowers the risk of diabetes, helps control appetite, helps maintain digestive tract health (prevents constipation).
