Publisher's Summary

Nearly half of Americans take at least one prescription medicine, with almost a quarter taking three or more, as diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and dementia grow more prevalent than ever. The problem with medicating common ailments, such as high blood pressure or elevated cholesterol, is that drugs treat symptoms - and may even improve test results - without addressing the cause: diet.

Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, most Americans fail to realize the answer to lower disease rates doesn't lie in more pills but in the foods we eat. With so much misleading nutritional information regarded as common knowledge, from "everything in moderation" to "avoid carbs", the average American is ill-equipped to recognize the deadly force of abundant, cheap, unhealthy food options that not only offer no nutritional benefits but actually bring on disease.

In Food over Medicine, Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, and Glen Merzer invite the listener into a conversation about the dire state of American health - the result of poor nutrition choices stemming from food politics and medical misinformation. But more importantly, they share the key to getting and staying healthy for life.

Backed by numerous scientific studies, Food over Medicine details how dietary choices either build health or destroy it. Food over Medicine reveals the power and practice of optimal nutrition in an accessible way.

    "Informative despite controversies"

    I have enjoyed listening to the discussion in the audible version covering many aspects of the subjects of healthy diet. That happened despite the controversial nature of many points and despite my tendency to disagree with the authors in multiple points. I advised all those interested in the subject of nutrition to listen to it as it helps balancing their views.

    "A must read!"

    I appreciate Dr. Popper’s approach to both the route in obtaining the health we deserve along with her approach to resolving the healthcare crisis. Each of us is ultimately responsible for our own healthcare. Why do we give these decisions to complete strangers who spend less than 10 min with us per visit? Finally, someone who is addressing the actual issues and not trying to redirect the public!

    "Would not recommend "

    Although some of the points discussed seem valid ,don't agree with the overall content ,author seems very arrogant .Also unrealistic as an example author recommends that patients always opt to get an MRI rather than a CT scan without discussing the price difference between the two images considering that most of us can't afford to have an MRI whenever needed and insurance company's will not authorize an MRI unless it is absolutely crucial . Thanks
