Almost half of Americans take at least one prescription medicine, with almost a quarter taking three or more, but diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and dementia are growing more prevalent than ever. Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, Americans fail to realize that the answer to lower disease rates doesn't lie in more pills, but in the foods we eat. In Food Over Medicine, Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, and Glen Merzer openly discuss the dire state of American health, the result of poor nutrition choices stemming from cynical food politics and medical misinformation. But, more important, they share the key to getting and staying healthy for life. As executive director of The Wellness Forum, Popper works to change lives through diet and lifestyle, reduce medical costs for businesses through health education programs for employees, and educate health care professionals on the healing potential of an optimal diet. Backed by numerous scientific studies, Food Over Medicinedetails how diet can dramatically improve health and turn around alarming diagnoses, such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, Crohn's disease, multiple sclerosis, and other major health problems, and do so more effectively than drugs that often have lingering side effects. Including recipes from Del Sroufe, author of the bestselling Forks Over Knives: The Cookbook, Food Over Medicinereveals the power and practice of optimal nutrition in a highly accessible way.
