The Lucky Years
Bestselling author David Agus unveils the brave new world of medicine, one in which we can take control of our health like never before and doctors can fine-tune strategies and weapons to prevent illness. In his first bestseller, The End of Illness, David Agus revealed how to add vibrant years to your life by knowing the real facts of health. In this book, he builds on that theme by showing why this is the luckiest time yet to be alive, giving you the keys to the new kingdom of wellness. Medicine is undergoing rapid change. In the old world, you followed general principles and doctors treated you based on broad, one-size-fits all solutions. In this new golden age, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the latest scientific findings and leverage the power of technology to customize your care. Only those who know how to access and adapt to these breakthroughs—without being distracted by hyped ideas and bad medicine—will benefit. Imagine being able to get fit and lose weight without dieting, train your immune system to fight cancer, edit your DNA to avoid a certain fate, erase the risk of a heart attack, reverse aging, and know exactly which drugs to take to optimize health with zero side effects. That’s the picture of the future that you can enter starting today. Welcome to The Lucky Years.

A Short Guide to a Long Life

A Short Guide to a Long Life
One of the world''s leading doctors presents the simple rules everyone should follow in order to live a long, healthy and productive life. In his No. 1 New York Times bestselling book, The End of Illness, Dr David B. Agus shared what he had learned from his work as one of today''s most prominent cancer doctors and researchers, revealing the risks he takes in a field begging for innovations that can prolong not only the lives of cancer patients but anyone hoping to live long and robustly. Now Dr Agus has compiled his most helpful health advice in a fun, illustrated guide. Hailed by Vice President Al Gore as having developed, ''a dramatic new way that could lead to greatly improving the quality of life for millions, starting right now,'' Dr Agus believes that our foundation for optimal health begins with the daily habits we keep-and that we can build upon that bedrock with inexpensive, widely accessible drugs that have been proven to work while ditching false promises, such as vitamins and supplements. Dr Agus'' Short Guide to a Long Life is divided into four sections (What to Do, What to Avoid, What to Master, and Doctor''s Orders) that provide the definitive answers to many common and not-so-common questions: Who should take a baby aspirin daily? Are flu shots safe? Are vitamins bad for you? What is truly ''fresh'' produce? Why is it important to protect your senses? Are airport scanners hazardous? Dr Agus''s eye-opening responses will help you develop new, effective patterns of personal health care so you can maintain your health using the latest and most reliable science.

The End of Illness

release date: Jan 26, 2012
The End of Illness
The time has come for us to stop thinking about illnesses like cancer as something the body ''gets'' or ''has'' but rather to think of them as something the body does. In this landmark work, leading researcher and physician Dr David Agus takes readers on a journey to decode the mystery of health and the human body. Based on his groundbreaking research and clinical trials, Dr Agus has come to the realization that the best way to combat cancer is to prevent it. For decades we''ve tried to whittle down our understanding of the body and its ailments to a finite point - a mutation, a germ, a deficiency or a number. But this has led us astray from a fundamental basic understanding of our bodies as systems. The End of Illness presents a system''s view of the body, urging readers to begin viewing their total health as a complex network of processes that cannot be explained by any single pathway or focal point. In many instances, it does us no good to try and understand a certain disease; we just need to control it, much like an air traffic controller manages planes without knowing how to actually fly one. This radically different perspective on health will not only change how we care for ourselves, but also how we spur the next generation of treatments, and, in some instances, cures. The book also shows readers how to personalize their self-care; much of the advice is surprisingly simple and affordable - such as wearing good shoes and eating lunch at the same time every day.
