Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Despite the cute title, a reasonable roundup of measures that can be taken to promote good health. Inlander, president of the People's Medical Society, a consumer health advocacy group, is updating a 1992 guide; he and Kelly, a freelance health writer, organize their information into a structure which hits the major concerns without overwhelming those taking the first steps to a healthier lifestyle. They first address "Preventing and Managing Medical Conditions": determining genetic, environmental, and lifestyle risk factors for disease; obtaining recommended screening tests; and how to become a savvy medical consumer (watch out for unnecessary surgery, for oneā€”the current most frequently performed surgical procedures are listed herein) are included. "Nutrition, Hormones, and Supplements" is up-to-date on the latest medical recommendations for daily allowances and supplementation, as well as where current research is headed (mostly in the direction of "anti-aging" supplements). Injury prevention covers home, travel, outdoor, and food/water safety. Exercise and other lifestyle changes, and mind/body connections, social support, and stress reduction round out the guide. By no means an in-depth prescription for long life; but this works as a reliable short course on how to get started on a healthier life.
