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.

Although some of the points discussed seem valid ,don't agree with the overall content ,author seems very arrogant .Also unrealistic as an example author recommends that patients always opt to get an MRI rather than a CT scan without discussing the price difference between the two images considering that most of us can't afford to have an MRI whenever needed and insurance company's will not authorize an MRI unless it is absolutely crucial . Thanks
