In The Health Delusion (Hay House, 4th June 2012, £12.99 pb), Glen Matten and Aidan Goggins bring together the wealth of compelling and exciting academic research into our health and make it accessible to all, in an unadulterated form. The authors have one simple aim: to bring you and your family better health. They not only reveal what has gone so horribly wrong with our collective health, but also show us how we can put it right. Combining their backgrounds in nutritional medicine and pharmacy, they set out a guide to achieving optimal health at every stage of life and for future generations to come, offering a detailed plan of the foods, supplements and lifestyle changes needed for total wellness.
In the 21st Century we are more health conscious than ever before, and
have a wealth of information on healthy living at our disposal, as well
as access to the incredible advancements of modern medicine. Yet despite
all this, a stark fact remains: if you are a healthy adult in today’s
society, you are in the minority. More than one in three people have
cardiovascular disease, one in six has high cholesterol and an
incredible six in every ten has raised blood pressure. One in ten has
diabetes and nearly another four out of those ten are on the verge of
getting it. If all that wasn’t bad enough, two out of every five people
will be diagnosed with cancer at some stage in their lives.
Surprisingly, many of the answers to these modern-day epidemics of
chronic disease are already within our grasp. The problem is that much
of the research carried out into our health remains stuck in the world
of academia or gets distorted by the media, self-proclaimed health gurus
or the food industry. This book cuts through the misinformation to
expose the shocking truths behind our diet, health and pharmaceutical
industries, looking at how they consistently put our health in jeopardy
in favour of boosting profits. The authors demonstrate how the media
compounds these problems by overloading us with information, often
misleading us in the process, and reveal how outdated the official
advice we receive on health and diet really is. Packed with the latest
scientific research, The Health Delusion provides the blueprint for
achieving exceptional health in the 21st Century.
