Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Advance Praise for Freedom from Disease

“Kash and Lombard finally put together the real story of the underlying cause of our epidemic of chronic illness from ADD to Alzheimer’s, from depression to heart attacks, from cancer to obesity – it is the insulin flooding through our bodies triggering a deathly cascade. Read this book – it will save your life. —Mark Hyman, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller, UltraMetabolism

“Kash and Lombard have written an important and enjoyable book that should be of great interest to all. Particularly in the area of cardiovascular disease which is responsible for the most deaths in the US even exceeding cancer, they lay out the compelling interrelationship between insulin resistance and inflammation of the arterial wall leading to heart attack and ultimately to heart failure. The most important contribution of this book however is its “call to arms” and how individuals can influence their own health destiny by discipline in what they eat and how they exercise to prevent chronic disease.”

—Dr. John C. Burnett Jr. MD. Marriott Family Professor of Cardiovascular Research, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN

“This is an amazingly clear, compelling, and scientifically rigorous work that replaces existing compendia of arcane knowledge around health and wellness.” —Joe Alexander, Jr., M.D., Ph.D., F.A.C.C. , Director of Director, Global Clinical Technology, Pfizer Human Health Technologies

Freedom from Disease clearly and eloquently opens the eyes of its readers to the inherent risks and maladies lurking when the human machine is taken for granted and offers solutions to keep the most efficient machine known, the human body, well tuned.” —Dr. Robert Gotlin, Director of Orthopedic and Sports Rehabilitation at Beth Israel hospital; Orthopedist Consultant to the NY Knicks, Yankees, Nets & NY Liberty

"Some of the most common health concerns we face today- diabetes, depression, fatigue, obesity and memory loss may be a consequence of insulin resistance. The authors clearly present the research that supports this assertion and the steps each and everyone of us must take to achieve a healthy life"

—Dr. Robert Goldman MD/PhD, Chairman of American Academy of Anti-Aging and Special Advisor to the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports

“The authors clearly document the current epidemic of obesity and the alarming increases in a number of diseases ranging from diabetes, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and endocrine and immune pathologies, all due to the excess of sugar in western diets.”

—Dr. Allan Goldstein Ph.D., Chairman of Chemistry and Molecular Biology at George Washington University
