How to Slow Aging with Simple Lifestyle Changes with Michael Greger, author of How Not To Die

Did you know that a healthy anti-inflammatory diet can benefit various organs throughout your body? From your heart and lungs to your brain, the right nutrition can slow down the aging process and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.


In the latest episode of The Darin Olien Show, I sit down with the author of How Not To Die and How Not To Age, Michael Greger. We discuss this nation’s major inflammation and age related disease issues and how they come from an ultra processed food diet. We go over how to boost our body’s natural cellular recycling process with simple lifestyle changes.


In our discussion, we emphasize the importance of evidence based research and how companies and consumers should make some modern day lifestyle changes. With simple changes, we could drastically reduce age related diseases. Our conversation dives into misconceptions with aging as well as the healing power of natural foods.


Michael Greger, M.D., is a physician and internationally recognized speaker on nutrition. His science-based nonprofit,, offers a free online portal hosting more than 2,000 videos and articles on myriad health topics. Dr. Greger is a sought-after lecturer and has presented at the Conference on World Affairs and the World Bank, testified before Congress, and was invited as an expert witness in Oprah Winfrey’s defense in the infamous “meat defamation” trial.
