Hype

release date: May 01, 2018
Hype
A Publisher's Weekly Best Book of 2018 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

release date: Jan 01, 2018
The Obesogen Effect
"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"--

A Mind of Your Own

release date: Mar 15, 2016
A Mind of Your Own
Named one of the top health and wellness books for 2016 by MindBodyGreen Depression is not a disease. It is a symptom. Recent years have seen a shocking increase in antidepressant use the world over, with 1 in 4 women starting their day with medication. These drugs have steadily become the panacea for everything from grief, irritability, panic attacks, to insomnia, PMS, and stress. But the truth is, what women really need can’t be found at a pharmacy. According to Dr. Kelly Brogan, antidepressants not only overpromise and underdeliver, but their use may permanently disable the body’s self-healing potential. We need a new paradigm: The best way to heal the mind is to heal the whole body. In this groundbreaking, science-based and holistic approach, Dr. Brogan shatters the mythology conventional medicine has built around the causes and treatment of depression. Based on her expert interpretation of published medical findings, combined with years of experience from her clinical practice, Dr. Brogan illuminates the true cause of depression: it is not simply a chemical imbalance, but a lifestyle crisis that demands a reset. It is a signal that the interconnected systems in the body are out of balance – from blood sugar, to gut health, to thyroid function– and inflammation is at the root. A Mind of Your Own offers an achievable, step-by-step 30-day action plan—including powerful dietary interventions, targeted nutrient support, detoxification, sleep, and stress reframing techniques—women can use to heal their bodies, alleviate inflammation, and feel like themselves again without a single prescription. Bold, brave, and revolutionary, A Mind of Your Own takes readers on a journey of self-empowerment for radical transformation that goes far beyond symptom relief.

The Obesity Paradox

release date: Mar 31, 2014
The Obesity Paradox
Most of us think that longevity hinges on maintaining a normal Body Mass Index. But research conducted over the last decade hit the media recently with explosive news: overweight and even moderately obese people with certain chronic diseases — from heart disease to cancer — often live longer and fare better than normal-weight individuals with the same ailments. In this groundbreaking book, Carl Lavie, MD, reveals the science behind the obesity paradox and shows us how to achieve maximum health rather than minimum weight. Lavie not only explains how extra fat provides additional fuel to help fight illness; he also argues that we’ve gotten so used to framing health issues in terms of obesity that we overlook other potential causes of disease. The Obesity Paradox will change the conversation about fat — and what it means to be healthy.
