Dr., President, Wellness Councils of America
Roger L. Greenlaw
This book shows us the way to resolve much of America's health crisis. It explains the science of healthy living in a language people can understand and follow. Yet, it is backed with the scientific evidence that can be trusted. Every adult, every patient, and every doctor in American should read this book.
Dr., FACP, Rockford Gastroenterology
Tim Butler
Very importantly, Dr. Aldana also offers many practical tools to help people set workable personal goals and make meaningful lifestyle changes. This ability to move from research foundations to personal action is the critical key to closing the immense gap between what we now know about human health and what we do in every day life.
MS, CHES Health Management Analyst IHC Health Plans
Walter Willett

    What the research shows about being healthy!

    I did a health program at work where we had to read this book as part of the requirement. I'm glad I did. I thought I was a fairly healthy person before I read the book, but I still learned a lot. What a great book! Easy and fun to read and packed with information about how to make the best choices for a healthy lifestyle. There is no way to read this book and not be a healthier person afterwards. Cuts through all the red tape and lets you know the simple things that you can do to improve your health, lose weight, and avoid the chronic diseases that plague many later in life. Anyone interested in improving their health and learning the correct way to do it should read this book. Everything in here is research based (there's hundreds of footnotes with study after study) but it is very easy to read and understand. Having a healthy lifestyle is a short and easy read away!

    Get to the Heart of Good Health

    Finally a book that gets to the heart of good health in a light-hearted but scientifically supported way! This book is a clear beacon of simple and understandable truth in a sea of commercially motivated hype. Every person with children, employees or patients should read and distribute this book.
