The End of Illness

by David B Agus


Many people believe that foods can cure just about anything. Magazines and lifestyle websites try to sell us on every superfood imaginable. But do they truly work? When it comes to health, things just aren't that simple.

There probably isn't one magical supplement that will make you live longer or cure diabetes. Furthermore, what works well for one person may not function for the next. But according to research, there are things that we can do to live a healthier, fuller life. And it has nothing to do with supplements.

In The End of Illness: How the Body Works and What Health Really Means, physician David B. Agus sorts through common health gimmicks and myths and unravels the things that work when it comes to improving your health. Health, after all, has no one-size-fits-all solution. But if you get to know your body, you'll be better equipped to take care of it.

Be wary of headlines that tell you what's good or bad for you. Scrutinize data before accepting it as dogma.
