Despite billions of dollars spent on medical research, new drugs and innovative technology to improve our health, more Americans are disabled and dying from chronic disease than ever before.
We have become a "pill popping" population, encouraged by a health care system that reimburses procedures rather than healthfulness, a pharmaceutical industry that gets paid to treat but not cure chronic disease, and a government that provides subsidies to the very food industries that they then warn us against.
Featuring leading medical experts and researchers, Eating You Alive takes a scientific look at the reasons we’re so sick, who’s responsible for feeding us the wrong information and how we can use whole-food, plant-based nutrition to take control of our health—one bite at a time.
