This indispensable book isn't just a manifesto-a call for revising the way we ponder health-it’s also filled with sensible but impossible-to-ignore recommendations, including:
• How consuming multivitamins and supplements could significantly raise our threat for cancer in time.
• Why sitting down most of the day, regardless of a strenuous early morning workout, can be as unhealthy as or more serious than cigarette smoking.
• How sneaky supplies of daily inflammation-from high heels towards common cold-can lead to a fatal cardiac arrest, as well as deprive us of our peace of mind.
• How three inexpensive medications-aspirin, statins, as well as an annual flu vaccine-can substantially alter the course of our wellbeing for the better.
• How having cutting corners to health via blending vegetables and fruit, and sometimes even by buying what we think is “fresh,” might be shortchanging our wellbeing.
• The one most important thing we could do today to preserve our health and happiness that costs practically nothing.
The End of Illness may be a daring call for all of us to become our very own personal health advocates, and a significant departure from orthodox reasoning. It is a seminal work that promises to transform how we live.
