This is an up to date and interesting look at medicine and health care today. The author provides the reader with methods and objectives, and tells the reader what to avoid in managing care and relationships with the doctor. It is a decent reading for both health care providers and lay persons. While it does filter some of the misinformation in the media, the book is filled with unreferenced and unsubstantiated medical factoids all throughout. That said, a far better choice is Naheed Ali's "The Obesity Reality: A Comprehensive Approach to a Growing Problem".

More brainwashing for the masses

It is surprising to me that a book like this is available in ebook format while truly eye opening books like "Sugar Blues" are not. This book is filled with medical mumbo jumbo and recommends (poisonous) flu shots and drugs over sensible changes to eating habits like doing away with sugar and eating raw unprocessed foods. I would not be surprised to find that this book was published with backing from the big drug companies. People need to wake up and start taking charge of their health by forgetting everything they have learned from doctors and the constant barrage of drug ads on tv and do their own research on the true causes of disease and ill health. The modern diet, especially in America, is made up of foods that have been refined to the point of having no nutritional value. And where can you go any more without seeing "Get your flu shots here"? We need to start educating ourselves and our children about the importance of a truly healthy, unrefined, unprocessed diet.

    Thought provoking book

    I enjoyed this thought provoking book where Dr Agus describes a different way of looking at health where disease may be a temporary state of imbalance. He advocates the use of statins and questions if dietary supplements have any value at all. My criticism is that he leaves out of the equation the huge benefits in cardiovascular health seen from the reduction in smoking. I also doubt that most people will be as fascinated by their own biology as he is. I enjoyed the book and it definitely made me think.

    Highly Recommended- interesting information & viewpoint.

    The book is thought provoking! Research into DNA, cells indicates all that we have been taught & learned about vitamins & supplements may be WRONG! Living a "healthy lifestyle" is the best way to stay well. Regular eating & sleeping habits along with good nutrition & excersize may be our key to life long wellness.

    Informative and enlightening...

    An interesting over view of the health care of cancer patients. Was hoping for alittle more depth into our own health, but all in all, an informative book.
