Publisher's Summary

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 listeners 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 audiobook'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, autoimmune diseases, and other debilitating conditions.

Both informative and practical, Eat to Beat Disease explains the science of healing and prevention and the strategies for using food to actively transform health, pointing the science of well-being and disease prevention in an exhilarating new direction.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What the critics say

"A ground breaking physician shares how we can use food to hack our natural defense systems and hardwire ourselves for health." (Mehmet Oz, MD, host, The Dr. Oz Show)

"Among the many diet and health books of recent years, this book should top the list. Dr. William Li, an experienced internal medicine physician, also has an outstanding professional reputation in medical research. He knows science and how to present it to the public. His facts can only lead to a more fulfilling way to think about health for all of us." (T Colin Campbell, PhD, Cornell University, author, The China Study and Whole)

"Eat to Beat Disease is a trailblazing book. Author, world-renowned physician and medical scientist Dr. William Li explains how we have the power to help control our own health destiny by making decisions that help the body heal itself. Dr. Li describes how more than 200 foods amplify our body's defenses which can result in beneficial health outcomes. Eat to Beat Disease is a must read - I strongly endorse it." (Dean Ornish, MD)

Great Book!

Excellent book! I wish I had the material that is supposed to come with it! The book starts off talking about some PDF material that I'm supposed to download but Audible doesn't provide a link and it is impossible to contact them to ask for one. Audible FAILS AGAIN! They are so insulated from their customers that you can't complain or ask them anything.

An Absolute must have book for Cancer care!

I found this book by watching Broken Brain2. Dr. Li has presented the findings in such a manner that helps apply what you learn immediately. Check out his website. We need more doctors that truly care about our wellbeing. Thank you Dr. Li, WELL DONE!

Thought provoking!

Dr. Li provides information that is groundbreaking in its efforts to share with the regular population about diet...Food as medicine. This concept is not a part of the billion dollar diet industry. I feel empowered and equipped to take the research and adopt it into my everyday practical life!I

This book didn't leave me feeling daunted or overwhelmed!

Thank you!

Nutrition Is Systematic

While, on the face of it, this is a compelling book with good ideas and information a deeper reflection suggests a serious flaw. Nutrients act within the complexity of the human system and isolating a nutrient to demonstrate efficacy may not be sufficient. Perhaps I'm flawed in my understanding the science of it all, though?
