Why do some of us get sick with greater frequency than others? What makes us more susceptible to illness? Are we doomed to get sick when our coworkers and family members do? Is there a secret to staying healthy?
Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a leading expert and board-certified medical specialist in prevention and reversing disease, offers a comprehensive guide to superior health.
Based on the latest scientific research, Super Immunity shows us how we can become almost totally resistant to colds, influenza, and other infections.
The evidence is overwhelming: we can supercharge our immune system to protect our bodies against disease - everything from the common cold to cancer. Nutritional science has made phenomenal strides and discoveries in recent years, and when this new research is applied it enables us to seize control of our health like never before. Dr. Fuhrman explains this new science, providing everything you need to know to put this knowledge into action in your kitchen and in your life.
What we eat has everything to do with our health, and, unfortunately, too many of us are living with a severely depleted immune function. Our dietary choices are making us sicker, shortening our lives, and costing us billions of dollars in doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications. But Dr. Fuhrman doesn’t believe more medical care is the answer. Rather, he explains the solution is to change the way we eat. The standard American diet is nutrient deficient. We are eating too many highly processed foods, foods with added sweeteners, and animal fats and protein. At the same time, we are not eating enough fruits, beans, seeds, and vegetables, which leaves us lacking in hundreds of the most important immune-building compounds. By changing our diets and combining foods that contain powerful immune-strengthening capabilities, we can prevent most common modern diseases.
Combining the latest data from clinical tests, nutritional research, and results from thousands of patients, Dr. Fuhrman proves that super immunity exists and is well within reach for those who choose it. We all have the ability to live healthier, stronger, and longer than ever before. Isn’t it time you discovered super immunity?

My ranking is 5 stars, but 2 stars goes to the reader. Disappointed by the reader.
The detailed information & clear explanations
He greatly distracted from this excellent book. He lacked the passion of the author & had gross mispronunciations of hundreds of essential words.
Yes, but difficult to absorb with one reading/listening.
The reader/narrator diminished from easy understanding of many critical explanations by his mispronunciations. I was listening & learning from a medical science background.
It makes sense. I've listened to so many books that all claim to have the diet answer and seemed to have a good argument, but Joel makes great sense. It is completely logical and possible to follow his advice.
Since both my parents have had some type of cancer, I decided that I do not want to go down that same road when I get older. I'm convinced that their food choices -both high in processed/packaged foods and similar to the Standard American Diet- contributed, if not caused their cancer. This book made me realize that my food choices will determine my health and that I can be proactive in creating super-immunity.
Since changing my diet, I have lost considerable belly fat without doing a single exercise. I feel healthier, cleaner and motivated to eat less meat and a variety of vegetables. Joel's other book, Eat to Live, is also a fantastic read (listen). Anyone looking to learn more about becoming Vegan should also check out the Documentary called Vegucate.
I'm recommending this book to everyone I know and I think I will be sending copies out for Christmas presents. It's that important.
It was easy to understand. I got curious and research more on the subject.
People need more books with more details and specific instructions about healthy life and how to self-treat.
One of the best.
He was not a great narrator of this book, stumbles on complex words.
The price of this book is far less the value of it's information. It is like taking a college level nutrition course.
YES!!! This vital information EVERYONE should know and practice.
Dr. Fuhrman is my favorite Dr. and mentor
No, this is the 1st time.
Although the content of the book was highly informative, the flow of information was regularly disrupted by the narrator's frequent stumbling over words.
I did some independent casual research previously to reading this book, after being struck with an antibiotic-resistant infection after a surgery. This research was confirmed not only by the near-immediate clearing of the infection after implementing dietary changed, but again by Dr. Fuhrman's book.
Eat Your Vegetables!!! ... Fantastic - life changing book!...
All the books say the same thing! It is just presented a little different but the message is the same!
Yes! I want to thank Dr. Fuhrman for opening my eyes to eat better!
The stats and information about certain foods effecting your emotional, physical state is well worth the purchase of the book.
easy to listen too.
This book provides you with excellent information on how to change your health. I also love the narrator, who did a great job. I listened to another book by Joel Fuhrman (Eat to Live), which he narrates it personally and his narration was not good. I also liked the automatic access to the PDF for Super Immunity. I recommend this book.
This book describes about how to get immunity against communicable and non communicable diseases like cancer. The best thing I got to know through this book is folic acid differs from folate itself. I've not distinguished them, honestly. Folic acid intake may cause carcinogenesis!Besides, we can acquire some pieces of knowledge very useful.I recommend this book anyone who concerns about nutrition preventing diseases like cancer.
The performance of Ned Sparrow is very good and easy to listen. His voice is comfortable.
The PDF contains a huge number of recipes. We can try the super immunity menu for 2 weeks!
