The ground breaking lifestyle guide to keep you healthy, fit and free of illness


In 'How to Live', Professor Robert Thomas, one of Britain’s leading oncologists and an expert in integrating nutritional and lifestyle strategies into cancer treatment, gives us effective, scientifically proven advice about everything from diet and exercise to sleep and skincare.

The book demystifies the role of the genes we were born with and how they are affected by the lifestyle choices we make every day. It explains how simple changes to our diet and routine can improve our immunity and help prevent premature ageing, degenerative diseases and our biggest killers including infection, covid-19, cancer, dementia, heart disease and diabetes.

Most importantly, as well as advice on 'how not to die', Professor Thomas explains how we can get the best out of our bodies to improve our exercise and work performance and, most importantly, he reveals 'how to live' free of disease, which affects our ability to have fun.

Some of the intriguing facts you will find in the book:

  • which foods elevate mood and improve gut health
  • why tasty, aromatic and colourful foods have such a positive impact on health
  • the best time to exercise to lower your cholesterol and reduce your risk of diabetes
  • how bacteria in your gut can help your blood pressure, immunity and bone strength
  • why not cleaning your teeth can cause bowel cancer
  • why exercising and improving gut health before and after a flu vaccine enhances its effect
  • why, after genetics, the biggest cause of childhood cancer is 'over clean kids'.

Did you know:

  • that drinking a glass of red wine after sunbathing can reduce lasting skin damage?
  • that your choice of deodorant could affect your long-term health?
  • that some houseplants are more effective in removing air toxins than others?

As Professor Thomas explains, through achievable changes to our daily routine we can improve the expression of our genes - helping us beat the odds of cancer and chronic disease. 

This is a health bible for life. Whether you are in your 20s or 70s, it will help you to empower your body against ageing and degenerative disease and live at maximum strength.
