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.

With so much misleading nutritional information regarded as common knowledge, from “everything in moderation” to “avoid carbs,” the average American is ill-equipped to recognize the deadly force of abundant, cheap, unhealthy food options that not only offer no nutritional benefits but actually bring on disease.

InFood 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 Medicinedetails how dietary choices either build health or destroy it. Including recipes from Chef Del Sroufe, author of the bestsellingForks Over Knives—The CookbookandBetter Than Vegan,Food Over Medicinereveals the power and practice of optimal nutrition in an accessible way.
Very few people, and even very few doctors, really understand how powerful nutrition can be in preventing and in treating most of the illness that afflicts us today.Food Over Medicineis an outstanding resource for anyone wanting to maximize their health and minimize their dependence on western medicine.
