Hype: A Doctor's Guide to Medical Myths, Exaggerated Claims and Bad Advice - How to Tell What's Real and What's Not

A straightforward appraisal of why health myths exist, dispelling many of them, and teaching readers how to navigate the labyrinth of health advice and the science and misinformation behind it.

Hype is Dr. Nina Shapiro's engaging and informative look at the real science behind our most common beliefs and assumptions in the health sphere.

There is a lot of misinformation thrown around these days, especially online. Headlines tell us to do this, not that—all in the name of living longer, better, thinner, younger. Dr. Shapiro wants to distinguish between the falsehoods and the evidence-backed truth. In her work at Harvard and UCLA, with more than twenty years of experience in both clinical and academic medicine, she helps patients make important health decisions every day. She's bringing those lessons to life here with a blend of personal storytelling and science to discuss her dramatic new definition of “a healthy life.”

Hype covers everything from exercise to supplements, alternative medicine to vaccines, and medical testing to media coverage. Shapiro tackles popular misconceptions such as toxic sugar and the importance of drinking eight glasses of water a day. She provides simple solutions anyone can implement, such as drinking 2% milk instead of fat free and using SPF 30 sunscreen instead of SPF 100. This book is as much for single individuals in the prime of their lives as it is for parents with young children and the elderly.

Never has there been a greater need for this reassuring, and scientifically backed reality check.

The Obesogen Effect: Why We Eat Less and Exercise More but Still Struggle to Lose Weight
In TOXIC WAIST, Dr. Bruce Blumberg reveals his landmark research as well as that by others in the field to show how hidden factors, such as environmental chemicals, might be important players in our 21st century obesity epidemic.

According to leading-edge science, being overweight is not just the result of too many cheeseburgers and not enough exercise. A silent factor is contributing greatly to our obesity epidemic: "obesogens." These chemicals in our diet and environment sabotage our efforts to lose weight by disrupting our hormonal system, altering how we create and store fat, and changing how we respond to dietary choices and calories. Even scarier: research has shown that the effects of obesogen exposure can be passed on to future generations by irreversibly interfering with the expression of our genes. And these chemicals are everywhere, from our food to our furniture to common, household products.

TOXIC WAIST offers a synthesis of the latest research in the field, and a three-step action plan to prevent and minimize the damaging effects of obesogens. This book lays out what we know so far about obesogens, shows how they work and how we are exposed to them (get ready to throw out your plastic food storage containers). Most importantly, it arms us with the knowledge we need to protect ourselves from the harmful effects of obesogens.
