As Faculty Dean of Continuing Medical Education at Harvard Medical School, Dr. Sanjiv Chopra provides the most up-to-date medical information to thousands of doctors from around the world each year. Now, in this book, he and Dr. Alan Lotvin bring this important, life-changing information directly to people everywhere, so that you too can benefit from the best, most reliable medical knowledge available today.Not every study that the media reports on is reliable, and Drs. Chopra and Lotvin show readers how they can tell which ones to pay to attention and which to ignore. In this book they explore medicine’s most controversial and exciting subjects, revealing new breakthroughs that affect your health and debunking the myths that you’ve always wondered about. It answers questions about a wide range of topics.

Highlights include:

  • Food and Drink: Is coffee a lifesaver? Is there really a "best" diet for you?
  • Drugs, Vitamins, and Supplements: Does Vitamin D prevent cancer? What supplements have value, and which are a waste of money? (Hint: almost all of them!)
  • Medicine: What cancer screening methods are effective? What's the truth about stem cells?
  • Alternative Medicine: Does acupuncture work? Can meditation or yoga make you healthy? 
  • Health Risks: Can cellphones cause tumors? Is it dangerous to drink from plastic bottles?

Using only the most current, most trustworthy scientific studies and interviews with the world's top authorities, A Longer Life, A Healthier Life explodes dozens of medical "facts" we all believe and provides surprisingly hopeful information about the latest research breakthroughs.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I feel that this was very basic, not for medically trained persons. Old information, this book is several years old. Dr. Chopra does not add anything to this presentation. I found his suggestions for the supplements he uses to be poorly grounded.

What do you think your next listen will be?

I have to be more selective.

How could the performance have been better?

It was poorly paced with the introduction belaboring the same points. Very dry, could have been better only by shelving this- old information.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Very few. Didn't enjoy the presentation.

Any additional comments?

A waste of time.
