5.0 out of 5 stars Health Reality Check, Jan. 12 2012
Caulfield strips away all of the hype and promotion around fitness, diet and genetics to give the reader a few key messages about what we can really do to be more healthy. He wades through the science and talks to the experts to tease out a few central truths that can be supported by clear evidence. While he is hard on alternative medicine he is equally critical of many aspects of modern healthcare, especially the role of the pharmaceutical industry. Caulfield weaves in his personal journey through his research which lightens the message and provides a few laughs. Beware - if you justify your eating habits by exercising you might not want to read the sections on exercise and diet.
