Description

WE'VE ALL SEEN THE HEADLINES:

The Pill That Can Prevent Cancer!

A Guaranteed Way To Avoid Alzheimer's Disease!

The Food That Lowers Bad Cholesterol!

BUT WHAT SHOULD WE BELIEVE?

ONCE UPON A TIME, maintaining your health seemed relatively simple. But today we're barraged by a never-ending array of conflicting medical advice. It's all terribly confusing, and most of us aren't sure what news we can trust and what we can ignore. Doctor Chopra Says offers a solution that will help you make the right decisions for your health.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Sanjiv Chopra teams up with renowned cardiologist Dr. Alan Lotvin to give you the most cutting-edge medical research available. Doctor Chopra Says explains how you can tell the difference between true medical news and irrelevant media hype, covering such vital topics as:

· Is wine the best medicine?

· Which cancer screening methods are effective?

· Is there a "best" diet for you?

· What one vitamin should everyone be taking? (And why you can throw away all the rest.)

· Are statins the new miracle drug?

Filled with authoritative advice from many of the top medical experts in their respective fields, Doctor Chopra Says gives you the tools you need to lead a healthier, happier, and longer life.
