People are thirsty for this information. Unfortunately, most people read the same things over and over again about health and nutrition. They know the language. They have read the intimate details of how and why to eat low fat, and have read books or articles on how some "new vitamin" will cure a disease. Most people assume that if they know these things, they then know a lot about health and nutrition. What they are really learning are fads, trends, and bold-faced lies. The microbites of true nutritional information are buried underneath these erroneous "health facts".
So, how do you find these hidden facts? What do you need to know that plants your feet firmly in the truth, so that everything starts to become crystal clear? Going Back to the Basics of Human Health starts your voyage into the dark worlds of food, supplement, and medical politics. Hopefully, it will give you a new view of "high-tech" as it is applied to your health. Mankind, through science, has developed rockets that take us to the moon, telescopes that can see Mars, magnetic resonating devices that can see inside the human body, computers, and all sorts of gadgets that have totally changed the way we live. So the assumption is made that the same scientific care that is taken in getting a rocket off the ground has been taken and is being taken in keeping us well. Not so!
Very few people are truly well. The news media has labeled it a health care crisis because the majority of people cannot pay their lifetime medical expenses... and no one else can either. We are led from one "new scientific breakthrough" to another, from one "new medical discovery" to another, and yet people are getting more and more sick. Millions of people suffer from indigestion, insomnia, depression, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, fatigue, ADD, infertility, obesity, frequent colds that they can't get over, asthma, impotency, and hormonal problems, just to name a few.
Most of what we see and hear is manipulated to wipe out our common sense and convince us that this is just the way it is. People become lulled into complacency when they should be outraged. How many people notice how prevalent being sick in our society really is? If they don't see it in the news over and over again, they figure that is just isn't so. But, many pertinent health issues do not make the front-page news because most journalists obtain their information from statements given to them by organizations or individuals that have vested interests.
"Knowledge is Power" is an often quoted phrase. Being educated helps one make informed decisions about anything in life. One of the interesting things about Going Back to the Basics of Human Health is that the doctors quoted in the latter part of the book are themselves ignorant of the information in the first two-thirds of the book. By reading this book, you know more than most health professionals do today. By reading the suggested reading list, you will know more than you thought possible.
