Wellness Forum executive director and naturopath Pam Popper, PhD, ND, sat down with writer Glen Merzer (who co-authored "Mad Cowboy"). They had a conversation which was very entertaining, at times hilarious -- but always enlightening.
The result is a new book entitled "Food Over Medicine: The Conversation That Could Save Your Life."
Aptly titled, this book is chock full of information about diet, disease prevention, and the state of our medical system.
What's not going to get you very far, according to Dr. Popper, is "minimal, half-assed dietary changes" or the idea that you can eat just about anything you want, so long as it's in moderation. Popper details how diet and lifestyle contribute to everything from heart disease to strokes, cancer, MS, rheumatoid arthritis, and likely even Alzheimer's.
Also covered in this wide-ranging discussion are numerous testimonials and stories of transformation using diet. Dr. Popper makes an urgent call for educating future doctors in nutrition as a crucial imperative in public health. But in the meantime, she stresses, we have to recognize that we can take control of our own health through diet. Dr. Popper and Merzer discuss how best to make use of your doctor and how to prevent the medical system from doing you harm.
Whether you're a newbie or a seasoned healthy eater, this book has a lot to offer, and is chock full of fascinating data you may not have come across anywhere else. It also contains a couple dozen healthy recipes by Forks Over Knives Cookbook author Del Sroufe and tips for maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle no matter how hectic your life may be.
Big thumbs up!
