FOOD OVER MEDICINE
June 11, 2013
Nearly half of Americans take at least one prescription medicine, with almost a quarter taking three or more, as diseases such as diabetes, obesity, and dementia grow more prevalent than ever. The problem with medicating common ailments, such as high blood pressure or elevated cholesterol, is that drugs treat symptoms—and may even improve test results—without addressing the cause: diet.
Overmedicated, overfed, and malnourished, most Americans fail to realize the answer to lower disease rates doesn’t lie in more pills but in the foods we eat.
In Food Over Medicine, Pamela A. Popper, PhD, ND, and Glen Merzer invite the reader into a conversation about the dire state of American health—the result of poor nutrition choices stemming from food politics and medical misinformation. But, more important, they share the key to getting and staying healthy for life.
Backed by numerous scientific studies, Food Over Medicine details how dietary choices either build health or destroy it. Including 25 recipes from Chef Del Sroufe, author of the bestselling Forks Over Knives—The Cookbook and Better Than Vegan, Food Over Medicine reveals the power and practice of optimal nutrition in an accessible way.
“Food Over Medicine is a must for anyone remotely concerned about health. It is incredibly funny, totally engaging, and promotes a diet that just happens to be the best for the planet.”
—Ed Begley Jr., actor and environmental activist
"Food Over Medicine is an outstanding resource for anyone wanting to maximize their health and minimize their dependence on western medicine."
—John Robbins, author of No Happy Cows and Diet for a New America
“Food Over Medicine is brimming with useful information that is both detailed and yet easy to understand.... It’s the sort of book that everyone who cares about their health should read.”
—Lee Fulkerson, director of Forks Over Knives
