Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, most Americans fail to realize the answer to lower disease rates doesn't lie in more pills but in the foods we eat. With so much misleading nutritional information regarded as common knowledge, from "everything in moderation" to "avoid carbs", the average American is ill-equipped to recognize the deadly force of abundant, cheap, unhealthy food options that not only offer no nutritional benefits but actually bring on disease.

I have enjoyed listening to the discussion in the audible version covering many aspects of the subjects of healthy diet. That happened despite the controversial nature of many points and despite my tendency to disagree with the authors in multiple points. I advised all those interested in the subject of nutrition to listen to it as it helps balancing their views.

All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such problems for decades.

Anti-aging has become a multi-billion dollar industry, but do you know which products, procedures or treatments are really going to help you look (and feel!) younger? Rest assured, the days of painful procedures that promised you the fountain of youth, cost a fortune, and then - surprise! - didn't work, are gone. There are treatments available that can halt, and in some cases, even reverse the aging process.

This book is not taking about the subject of its title: The best antiaging treatment as one would expect from such title when written by a physician; it is talking about the make up, cosmetics, and skin and hair care.. I just scanned the titles without going into its detail..It is not suitable at all for anyone looking for antiaging treatment!

I have bought this book three times: audible, kindle and actual paper book (other than its companion book and a keynote audiobook); the book is an unbelievable collection of the findings of huge number of dietary studies: very well summarized and presented. Regardless of the strength and accuracy of these studies, the book has gathered the strongest available evidence based dietary advices. I have no hesitancy to advice all of those caring for their own and their family health to listen/read it and benefit from its advices.

The author of the highly acclaimed Overdiagnosed describes seven widespread assumptions that encourage excessive, often ineffective, and sometimes harmful medical care. You might think the biggest problem in medical care is that it costs too much. Or that health insurance is too expensive, too uneven, too complicated - and gives you too many forms to fill out. But the central problem is that too much medical care has too little value.

Dr.Welch has further consolidated the earlier discussions in his previous two books: " over diagnosed" and "Should I Be Tested for Cancer?: Maybe Not and Here's Why". The ideas of overdiagnosing and overtreating were supported by some new examples as those related to angioplasty for the asymptomatic patient, prescribing antiarrhythmics for chronic AF, back surgery and dental interventions..etc and expanded to include the care of the near dying patients.. Support listening/reading the book especially for those adopting (? may be breaching) the principle of trying to do less for getting more of health..

Dish up the red meat, eggs, and whole milk! In this well-researched and captivating narrative, veteran food writer Nina Teicholz proves how everything we've been told about fat is wrong. For decades, Americans have cut back on red meat and dairy products full of "bad" saturated fats. We obediently complied with nutritional guidelines to eat "heart healthy" fats found in olive oil, fish, and nuts, and followed a Mediterranean diet heavy on fruits, vegetables, and grains. Yet the nation's health has declined. What is going on?

I have enjoyed very much listening to ‘Big Fat Surprise’. This is happening despite reading or listening to multiple books with similar views to the subject of fat and diet.. I am very surprised for the excellent and accurate grasp of the diet and fat jargon by a writer from outside the medical field. The discussion is very educative and beneficial for oneself, family, and surrounding society. Though I have somewhat different attitude toward defining healthy food, the book has contained a wealth of data supporting the safety if not the relative benefit of saturated fats. I believe that healthy diet combined combining Mediterranean like diet (stressing intake of olive oils, vegetables, fruits and fish) plus some form of Paleo diet while avoiding trans fats, processed foods and regular polyunsaturated oils. The author’s search has indirectly revealed some of the unfavorable aspects of medical practice as the medical inertia and the ? occasional influences of business and companies on decisions made by medical authorities
