Statins are the so-called wonder drugs widely prescribed to lower blood cholesterol levels and claim to offer unparalleled protection against heart disease. Believed to be completely safe and capable of preventing a whole series of other conditions, they are the most profitable drug in the history of medicine. In this groundbreaking book, GP Malcolm Kendrick exposes the truth behind the hype, revealing: high cholesterol levels don't cause heart disease; a high-fat diet - saturated or otherwise - does not affect blood cholesterol levels; and, the protection provided by statins is so small as to be not worth bothering about for most men and all women.Statins have many more side affects than has been admitted and their advocates should be treated with scepticism due to their links with the drugs' manufacturers.Kendrick lambastes a powerful pharmaceutical industry and unquestioning medical profession, who, he claims, perpetuate the madcap concepts of 'good' and 'bad' cholesterol and cholesterol levels to convince millions of people to spend billions of pounds on statins, thus creating an atmosphere of stress and anxiety - the real cause of fatal heart disease.With clarity and wit, "The Great Cholesterol Con" debunks our assumptions on what constitutes a healthy lifestyle and diet. It is the invaluable guide for anyone who thought there was a miracle cure for heart disease, an appeal to common sense and a controversial and fascinating breakthrough that will set dynamite under the whole area.

The Meaty Truth is an eye-opening look at the massive problems caused by the American population's food supply. Water, meat, and milk and other dairy products are filled with toxins, antibiotics, untested growth hormones, ammonia, and animal pus and manure. The current conditions of the food production industry must drastically improve, and until they do, it is absolutely vital to monitor what you eat. Castle and Goodman take a hard-hitting look at what America is putting into its food, the negative effects this has on the world, and the best ways to make healthy, informed decisions about eating. As the antibiotic age ends, the rise of pandemic diseases is approaching. Approximately half of the illnesses that claim American lives today are related to what we eat, and our health care system is focused on treating the sick, not preventing illnesses from occurring. To fix our health problems, to continue feeding the world's ever-growing population, and to save our planet from ecological destruction, we can no longer avoid making changes to how American meat and dairy products are produced. This guide is easy to read, applicable to anyone's lifestyle, and impossible to put down.
The global statistics around coronary heart disease, heart attack and stroke are truly alarming. The rates of high blood pressure and cholesterol, both major risk factors of the above conditions, are also extraordinary. The tragedy is that the rates are rising worldwide, despite how easy it can be in many circumstances to reduce risk. Healthy Cholesterol looks at what high cholesterol and high blood pressure are and why they can be so dangerous, and, in particular, why atherosclerosis, or plaque build-up in the arteries, is the most significant consequence of these conditions and causal factor of heart attack, stroke and coronary heart disease. Risk factors associated with high blood pressure and cholesterol and treatments, including non pharmacological intervention, are also explored. Finally, Healthy Cholesterol looks at the ways we can reduce or reverse our risk of high blood pressure and high cholesterol, and, ultimately, our risk of heart attack, stroke and coronary heart disease.
One in two people in the UK will get cancer. And with fears that obesity could one day bankrupt the NHS, The Primal Cure reveals how misguided research, corporate greed and outdated government advice has tainted our perception of what it means to be healthy. Backed by qualified GPs and revered medical professionals, Steve Bennett's holistic approach to health, wellbeing and happiness, details how we can drastically reduce our chances of suffering from diabetes, heart disease and mental illness. This is not a diet book; it's far greater and more powerful than that. The first priority though, is to acknowledge our current diet is lacking essential, life-affirming nutrition and is damaging our microbiome; the diverse environment within us where it's crucial for good bacteria to thrive. The food our primal ancestors ate was 100% natural and the environment in which he lived was conducive to a healthy human being. Today, our food is processed or chemically treated, lacking good vitamins and minerals. Sugar and carbs are responsible for many of the health epidemics we face; but these can be averted with a Primal approach... By eating organic food, high in protein and fats, but void of refined carbohydrates - the way nature intended - we can fuel a healthy human being. Furthermore, our environment is toxic. There is habitual over-reliance on subscription medicines and drugs, whilst our cosmetics are loaded with paraffin and petroleum. And we all know how the very air we breathe can be poison... By applying only natural ingredients to our bodies - nothing we wouldn't willingly ingest in the same way we apply topically - we can treat our bodies with respect. Finally, we've created a stressful lifestyle for ourselves; one in which we all sleep less and worry more. Stress is lethal; strain within the body is the root cause of all illness. We're advised to do the wrong kinds of exercise; the kind of prolonged physical activity which isn't beneficial to the human body, nor appropriate for the lifestyles we lead... By adopting the Primal Cure MOMMS approach to exercise - Max Out, Move More, Sprint - we become fitter and stronger without causing unnecessary damage. In essence, The Primal Cure shows how by realigning our diet, lifestyle and environment, we can look enhance our wellbeing and longevity so we can all live healthier, happier, longer lives. The author and his collaborators are not afraid to speak out against poor advice which has been touted as the norm. Likewise, Steve Bennett encourages us to take control of our health and rethink our approach to living and eating. Cure by name. Prevention by nature. Adopt The Primal Cure and changes to your health will be life-saving.

Co-written by one of the country's most prominent internists, Dr. Henry "Harry" Lodge, and his star patient, the 73-year-old Chris Crowley, "Younger Next Year for Women" is a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. This is a book of hope, a guide to aging without fear or anxiety. Using the same inspired structure of alternating voices, Chris and Harry have recast material specifically for women, who already live longer and take better care of themselves than men. New material covers menopause and post-menopause, as well as cardiac disease, osteoporosis, sexuality, and more.
This is the book that can show us how to turn back our biological clocks--how to put off 70% of the normal problems of aging (weakness, sore joints, bad balance) and eliminate 50% of serious illness and injury. The key to the program is found in Harry's Rules: Exercise six days a week. Don't eat crap. Connect and commit to others. There are seven rules all together, based on the latest findings in cell physiology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, and experimental psychology. Dr. Lodge explains how and why they work--and Chris Crowley, who is living proof of their effectiveness (skiing better today, for example, than he did twenty years ago), gives the just-as-essential motivation.
Both men and women can become functionally younger every year for the next five to ten years, then continue to live with newfound vitality and pleasure deep into our 80s and beyond.

The #1 New York Times bestseller by the 6-time Super Bowl champion The first book by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady-the 6-time Super Bowl champion who is still reaching unimaginable heights of excellence at 41 years old-a gorgeously illustrated and deeply practical "athlete's bible" that reveals Brady's revolutionary approach to sustained peak performance for athletes of all kinds and all ages. In modern sports, some athletes have managed to transcend their competition in a way that no one will ever forget: Jordan. Jeter. Ali. Williams. These elite legends have changed the game, achieved the unthinkable, and pushed their bodies to unbelievable limits. Joining their exclusive ranks is Tom Brady. "Brady is the healthiest great champion the NFL has ever had, both physically and mentally" (Sally Jenkins, The Washington Post). The longtime New England Patriots quarterback, who in 2017 achieved his fifth Super Bowl win and fourth Super Bowl MVP award, is widely regarded as an athlete whose training and determination pushed him from a mediocre draft position to the most-revered and respected professional football player of his generation. In The TB12 Method, Tom Brady explains how he developed his groundbreaking approach to long-term fitness, presenting a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to his personal practice. Brady offers the principles behind pliability, which is at the heart of a new paradigm shift and movement toward a more natural, healthier way of exercising, training, and living-and one that challenges some commonly held assumptions around health and wellness. Filled with lessons learned from Brady's own peak performance training, and step-by-step action steps to help readers develop and maintain their own peak performance, The TB12 Method also advocates for more effective approaches to strength training, hydration, nutrition, supplementation, cognitive fitness, recovery, and other lifestyle choices that dramatically decrease the risk of injury while amplifying and extending performance, as well as quality of life. After using his methods for over a decade, Brady believes that the TB12 approach has made him-and can make any athlete, male or female, in any sport and at any level-achieve their own peak performance. With instructions, drills, photos, in-depth case studies that Brady himself has used, as well as personal anecdotes and experiences from on and off the field, The TB12 Method is the only book an athlete will ever need, a playbook from Brady himself that will change the game.
