Want to know why cholesterol matters, and why it doesn't? The difference between lifespan and longevity? How scientific studies are manipulated (hint: follow the money)? Moore applies investigative journalism techniques (well, good science, really) to challenge some of the prevailing myths about how long you'll live. This book is a testimony to the pursuit of truth and evidence based medicine. Highly recommended.
This is really what this very fine and lively discussion of health and longevity is about. The deception of the public and the willingness of the public to be deceived are topics this book will inform you about. Not a book for people who want life and health to be simple and someone else's responsibility to take care of. Wonderful and very informative book about the realities of modern health care. Of value to anyone who wants to know the truth about health and longevity. It's no wonder this book has found only a small audience and is out of print.
