The End of Illness

What if taking multivitamins and supplements significantly increased our risk of cancer over time? Or if sitting down most of the day, despite a strenuous morning workout, was as bad as or worse than smoking?  What about if regular stretching or yoga could prevent osteoarthritis? It’s all true, according to Dr. David B. Agus, one of the world’s leading cancer doctors, researchers, and technology innovators in his revolutionary new book, The End of Illness.

The End of Illness is a bold call for all of us to become our own personal health advocates, and a dramatic departure from orthodox thinking, focusing on prevention instead of treatment. This is a seminal work that promises to revolutionize how we live. In The End of Illness, David B. Agus, MD, challenges long-held wisdoms and dismantles misperceptions about what “health” means. With a blend of storytelling, landmark research, and provocative ideas on health, Dr. Agus presents an eye-opening picture of the human body and all of the ways it works—and fails—showing us how a new perspective on our individual health will allow each of us to achieve that often elusive but now reachable goal of a long, vigorous life.
