The book “Eat to Beat Disease: The New Science of How Your Body Can Heal Itself” by William W. Li is a popular science book that provides readers with the latest insights into the human body’s self-healing abilities. The book discusses the latest scientific research on the role of diet in preventing and treating chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, etc.

According to the author, the human body has a powerful immune system that can heal itself from most diseases. However, this immune system needs to be supported by a healthy, nutrient-rich diet.

The book discusses 9 food groups that have the ability to stimulate the immune system and help the body heal itself, including:

  • Fruits and vegetables: Fruits and vegetables are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. They have anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and healing effects.
  • Nuts and seeds: Nuts and seeds are a good source of healthy fats, protein, fiber, and vitamin E. They have anti-inflammatory, cholesterol-lowering, and cholesterol-increasing effects.
  • Whole grains: Whole grains are a good source of fiber, B vitamins, magnesium, and selenium. They have a reduced risk of heart disease, diabetes, and some types of cancer.
  • Legumes: Legumes are a good source of protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They have cholesterol-lowering, cholesterol-increasing, and reduced risk of heart disease effects.
  • Fatty fish: Fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, and mackerel are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids have anti-inflammatory, reduced risk of heart disease, and some types of cancer effects.
  • Spices: Some spices such as garlic, ginger, turmeric, and chili peppers contain compounds with anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, and healing effects.
  • Coffee and tea: Coffee and tea are a good source of antioxidants. They have anti-oxidant, anti-cancer effects.

    This audiobook is a treasure trove of health wisdom. Dr. Li doesn’t just tell you what to eat; he explains the science behind why and how certain foods aid in healing and disease prevention. It’s empowering and enlightening.

  2. Aisling

    A life-changing book. Even if you consider yourself savvy about nutrition–buy this book. If you know nothing–buy this book. If you are facing a disease or want to avoid them–buy this book. I often pass on books to friends or relatives but this one I am keeping and advising everyone else to get their own copy. I swear I do not know Dr. Li nor am I making a commission, I just feel very strongly that this book can revolutionize your life.
    This book is a time commitment, but the pay-off is priceless. The first 1/3 I felt like I was in medical school (almost) but that really helps you to understand how your body is working when it is healthy or when it is fighting disease. The next bit discusses (with studies to back up every claim) food (hundreds of individual items) and tells you what disease it prevents or fights. The last section has sample menus, recipes and a system for incorporating a minimum of the foods taylored to your own goals. To say this book is comprehensive is an understatement.
    I literally began changing my eating habits halfway through this book. The food you eat is an incredibly powerful tool for your health. This book will tell you everything you need to know. 5 stars, very highly recommended.

  3. Linda Donohue

    Incredible! The audiobook of ‘Eat to Beat Disease’ is both informative and a pleasure to listen to. Dr. Li’s groundbreaking research on food and its impact on health is truly eye-opening. His practical tips are easy to incorporate into any lifestyle.

  4. Richard Dominguez

    Dr. Li’s ‘Eat to Beat Disease’ is a masterpiece of nutritional science. The audiobook is engaging and provides a wealth of information that is applicable to daily life. It’s not just a diet guide; it’s a blueprint for a healthier life.

  5. Noreen

    I began chemotherapy for stage II TNBC breast cancer recently. Looking back, I wish I had come across this book earlier to better prepare my body’s defenses. It offers an insightful look into the pharmacological aspects of food. Simplistic views like avoiding coffee and tea for their caffeine, or wine and beer for their alcohol content, are misguided. It seems that a defensive approach to eating could help in reducing recurrence rates. I’m curious about the recommended dosage for aged garlic – I’m estimating around 1-2 cloves daily. The book is a goldmine for food scientists, packed with valuable information.

    Update on September 5: This book is an excellent starting point for creating a personal dietary plan based on food pharmacology. Many healthcare professionals adhere to standard protocols to avoid legal issues and ensure insurance coverage. Deviating from these approved protocols could result in losing their license or not being compensated. However, an intelligent adult can devise their own plan. Given the vast metabolic differences among individuals, a universal dietary protocol is impractical. You shouldn’t wait for a healthcare professional or anyone else to customize a personal diet plan for you. Use your intellect to think it through. I’m grateful to Dr. Li for assembling this valuable resource.

  6. Megan

    “Eat to Beat Disease is a game-changer in the world of health and nutrition. The audiobook format makes it even more accessible. Dr. Li’s approach to using food as medicine is both revolutionary and practical. Highly recommended for anyone looking to improve their health!”

  7. DeSantis

    Fantastic material. The insights and data shared align well with other research I’ve explored regarding nutrition for wellness. Personal dietary adjustments I’ve made also resonate with the outcomes described in this book. While I always advocate for healthier food choices, I particularly recommend exploring the options presented here. The author doesn’t enforce strict dietary limits but rather highlights foods that bolster our body’s inherent defense systems, offering practical advice on incorporating them into daily meals. The focus isn’t on eliminating entire food groups, except for the usual culprits like processed foods and sugar. The book also connects certain foods to the prevention and even reversal of various ailments, including diverse cancers, heart disease, stroke, and autoimmune disorders. The key takeaway: give it a shot. If it aids in disease recovery, that’s wonderful. If not, healthier eating is still beneficial.

  8. Peggy

    Absolutely enlightening! This audiobook has transformed the way I view food and health. Dr. Li’s insights are backed by solid science yet easy to understand and apply. A must-listen for anyone serious about boosting their body’s natural healing abilities.

  9. David Rubenstein

    Eat to Beat Disease:Dr. Li offers a science-backed guide to optimizing your five vital defense systems against disease using foods. Each system gets its own research-packed breakdown of beneficial and harmful foods. Think broccoli for balanced angiogenesis, green tea for cancer stem cell control, and fermented foods for a healthy gut. While the plant-based focus resonates, reservations remain about animal protein inclusion and Dr. Li’s interpretations compared to Dr. Greger’s “How Not to Die.” Worthwhile for research-loving readers seeking food-as-medicine strategies.
    -Science-based approach to disease prevention through diet
    -Detailed breakdowns of each defense system and corresponding foods
    – Lists of beneficial and harmful foods for specific needs\
    – Uncertainties about animal protein intake and Dr. Li’s research interpretations
    -May be too research-heavy for some readers
    -Potential disagreement with certain dietary recommendations
    Overall: A valuable resource for those seeking a research-driven approach to optimizing health through food, with some key points open to further exploration and comparison with other sources.

  10. Huether

    This doctor’s book is a delicious (and science-backed) guide to boosting your defenses with food! Learn about 5 key systems, 5 disease-fighting foods, and a 5-times-a-day plan. The lists are extensive, but I discovered surprising gems like cooked tomatoes in olive oil and the superiority of stone fruits. Not everything’s perfect (bye-bye tilapia!), but even dark chocolate gets the green light (once a day!). This book explains the science behind healing and prevention, leaving me informed and inspired.

  11. Donna

    This is Nonfiction/Health. I haven’t read this author yet but I liked the title and the genre so I picked it up. The subtitle says “New Science” and it may be newish but a lot of this has been covered already in many other books. BUT….. I really liked how the author laid it all out.

    He was very organized as he broke this topic down into usable segments and not once did I feel like I was in a college class (which is a good thing). He also gave some practical application ideas on how to eat better and also what to eat. He seemed to lean toward the Whole Foods Plant Based diet. The microbiome section was my favorite. So for this one….4 stars.

  12. Ginger Bensman

    A brilliant blend of science and practical advice. The ‘Eat to Beat Disease’ audiobook has been a revelation for me. It’s filled with actionable tips and grounded in rigorous scientific research. A must-have for health enthusiasts.
