Treatments can be game-changers but why don't we prevent
disease in the first place? Yes, we should treat disease; that's
important but even more important is preventing it. When you talk
about prevention, you can't really talk about medicines or drugs;
you have to talk about other tools and that's what has brought me
to researching food as medicine. - Dr. William

Power Quotes From The
A New Age Of Health
"The industrial era was the time when we became so flush with
choices that were pre-packaged, pre-chosen, and pre-processed for
us that made things wonderfully convenient in a certain way, but
really for our bodies and our health, wonderfully inconvenient
because we lost touch with who we actually are. Now we're at a
point of rediscovery as we're focusing on the basics like cooking
our own meals with local foods, creating a backlash against
industrialization, and essentially coming back to who we are as
humans." - Dr. William Li
The Body's Ecosystem
"The 5 Health Defense Systems that I write about in Eat To
Beat Disease - angiogenesis, stem cell regeneration,
microbiome, DNA repair, and our immunity are really quite amazing
because they're all interrelated. Our health defenses are like The
Great Barrier Reef; there's not just one type of coral - there are
many types of coral plus other plant life, turtles, fish, and the
list goes on. It's an ecosystem and everything works together.
That's really what our body is; a gigantic ecosystem of health."
- Dr. William Li
Making Good Decisions Today For Greater Health Tomorrow
"To live healthy and eat healthy, start with nutritious foods
that you already love. If you do that, you're already going to be
way ahead of the game and that's where everybody should begin. It's
not only about cutting out processed foods, but it's also about
what you add to your diet. In addition, food itself is not a magic
bullet but a part of the equation. Stay physically active, manage
your stress, and get good sleep. All of these things work together
to make a happy ecosystem in your body. The decisions we make today
can make huge implications for who we are tomorrow." - Dr.
