"Life Changing Book"
Fat is an obsession, a dirty word, a subject of national handwringing - and, according to biochemist Sylvia Tara, the least understood part of our body. You may not love your fat, but your body certainly does. In fact your body is actually endowed with many self-defense measures to hold on to fat. For example, fat can use stem cells to regenerate; increase our appetite if it feels threatened; and use bacteria, genetics, and viruses to expand itself. The secret to losing 20 pounds? You have to work with your fat, not against it.

"Having the physical book may be better than audio"
Dr. Joe Pizzorno is convinced that lifelong good health rests on two key determinants: your exposure to toxins and your ability to process them in your body. While lifestyle, diet, and genetics all play major roles in well-being, many symptoms of declining health and chronic disease are rooted in toxic overload - our exposure to a barrage of chemicals, heavy metals, radiation, electromagnetic frequencies, and pollution that are the byproducts of modern life.

Still, detractors of high-fat diets have called them unsafe and even dangerous, as proponents vowed that going on a high-fat diet is the surest way to fast and safe weight loss, and better overall health.

We don't usually go hungry and we have developed a culture of instant gratification. No longer do we eat in response to just our real hunger - our emotions, habits and behaviors and the addictive properties that are now added to everyday foods play a huge part in our mindless eating.

At a time when access to health care in the United States is being widely debated, Nortin Hadler argues that an even more important issue is being overlooked.
