Overview

Everyone’s going to die; the only question is, how? Soldiers refer to this certainty as "a bullet with your name on it.” For each person, though, there can be many bullets — and by knowing where to look, and what actions to take, readers may be able to dodge most of them. Consumers looking for reliable medical advice face a barrage of uncertain, often contradictory, and occasionally deadly misinformation, with as many prescriptions for better living as there are lobbying groups and pharmaceutical companies. Avery Hurt sifts through the chaff of current medical hype to focus on the key health issues that everyone faces. She simplifies the current research on risk factors for heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and other conditions so that readers can make meaningful decisions based on their own situations and lifestyles. Through her by-the-numbers approach, readers can adopt preventative steps that lessen their odds for contracting terminal illnesses.
