How can food be used as medicine?
Dr William LiDr William LiHD, subtitles, Q&A48m
Our bodies are designed to fight disease, and food can be used to amplify this hidden power. In this conversation, Dr William Li reveals how what we eat can help reduce the risk of dementia, cancer and other avoidable diseases.

Every day, consumers face a deluge of confusing and often conflicting information about which foods are good for us and how we should be eating to be healthy, making it difficult to navigate through the noise and get to the scientific facts. This talk aims to do just that, by explaining the science behind how to choose the right foods to keep our bodies healthy and stave off illness.

Our bodies are designed to fight disease, and science has previously underestimated how foods can be used to boost this capability. While there is no single factor in our lives that can prevent sickness, there are some science-based ways in which our health can be enhanced through food. Understanding our body’s health defence systems and the food that activates them is key to learning how to put food to work as medicine with health-boosting foods that can stave off cancer, reduce risk of dementia, and beat dozens of avoidable diseases.

In this conversation, pioneering physician-scientist Dr William Li will discuss the power of diverse eating habits and how food can activate all 5 health defence systems every day: angiogenesis, cell regeneration, the microbiome, DNA protection, and immunity. He’ll also reveal how we can use our diets to prevent and defeat cancer.
