Edell, author of Eat, Drink and Be Merry, presents relaxed and practical advice familiar to the millions of people who have watched him on TV or listened to him on radio. Changes in the health care system can make it difficult for patients to get the treatment they want: Edell offers advice to them and also addresses the many advances in scientific research such as hormone therapy and cancer that can be confusing to physicians, let alone patients. The book is organized in general subject areas-including sex, women's issues, children, alternative medicine, aging and addiction-that feature a short introduction, resource list and q&as. These sections are logical, although there are occasional entries that seem almost trivial, compared to more serious issues. For example, Edell answers the question of whether "eating seaweed makes your hair grow thicker." Overall, however, the questions Edell fields are very specific and relevant to many, and cover a wide range of topics. It's unlikely that this volume will replace the many other health titles, but it is a useful reference, especially for advice on nutrition and alternative medicine
