Misguided Medicine: Second Edition
Are you confused as to why the foods and actions of your grandparents are now considered unhealthy, yet they lived in health to an old age? Are you tired of being told that pills, as opposed to diet, exercise, and lifestyle provide you with health? Perhaps your confusion is insight into the many issues with current medical recommendations that often take you out of the picture when it comes to your health. Perhaps it is time to take your health back into your hands.
Colin Champ, researcher and practicing physician in the study of cancer, provides an accessible and authoritative insider story of the winding, perilous journey of how and why we got it wrong in several main areas of health. Deconstructing the crumbling diet-heart hypothesis and the supposed benefits of grains, the threat of salt and meat and other slow-dying myths, Dr. Champ explains what is wrong and how you can do it right. If, in the end, we are not all suffering the agony of Laocoon (the last chapter tells you the story), the misguided medicine of the title has caused much harm and this book will help us get back on the right path.

Colin Champ has applied Occam s razor to the muddled and often wrong-headed world of nutrition and exercise by producing an irreverent, but actionable, guide to better health while having more fun along the way.

The ultimate reference for taking control of your health. The path to optimal health is not a direct one, but this book certainly provides the vital road map.
