More About The End of Illness by M.d. David Agus; Holter Graham
 
 
 
Overview
From one of the world s foremost physicians and researchers, a monumental work that radically redefines our conventional conceptions of health and illness to offer new methods for living a long, healthy life.
Can we live robustly until our last breath? Do we have to suffer from debilitating conditions and sickness? Is it possible to add more vibrant years to our lives? In The End of Illness, David B. Agus, MD, one of the world s leading cancer doctors, researchers, and technology innovators, tackles these fundamental questions, challenging long-held wisdoms and dismantling misperceptions about what health means. Dr. Agus argues for a way of honoring our bodies as complex, whole systems. This outlook informs how we can avoid all illnesses not just cancer and empowers us to take charge of our individual health in personal, customized ways we could not have imagined before.
This indispensable book is filled with practical but impossible-to-ignore suggestions, including: how taking multivitamins and supplements could significantly increase our risk for diseases such as cancer over time; why sitting down most of the day, despite a strenuous morning workout, can be as bad as or worse than smoking; how three inexpensive medications can substantially change the course of our health for the better; and the single most important thing we can do today to preserve our health and happiness that costs absolutely nothing.
"The End of Illness" is a bold call for all of us to become our own personal health advocates, and is a seminal work that promises to fundamentally change how we live."

In this day and age, everyone is searching for a quick fix to help lose weight, grow hair, prevent wrinkles, and live longer. Naturally, there’s no healthy quick fix to be found, but Agus—a doctor and modern rock star of science, according to GQ—has plenty of tips on how to get healthy, stay healthy, and live a long life in this informative guide. Holter Graham skillfully narrates the audio edition, turning in a down-to-earth delivery that speaks directly to listeners and a tone that is appropriately affirmative and reassuring. Graham’s reading never sounds condescending or judgmental—and listeners will appreciate this almost as much as the tips and guidance provided by Agus. A Free Press hardcover. (Jan.)
