Western nations are worried about the problems of an ageing population. But if we take into account the health trends in younger generations, we arrive at a frightening prediction: for the first time in history, we have produced a generation that may t outlive its parents. Like a growing number of doctors throughout the developed world, general practitioner Carole Hungerford became concerned about these trends, and began to question a health industry based on a model of 'curing disease'. The result is Good Health in the 21st Century, an encyclopaedic health guide that provides an extraordinary amount of easily understood information and a radically different way of maintaining well-being. Rejecting the routine cocktails of medication, with their complicated interactions and side effects, Dr Hungerford shows how to provide a chance for minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids to do their health-giving work. The subjects covered include asthma, arthritis, cancer, obesity, and cardiovascular disease; mental health and neurological disorders; hormone-replacement therapy and vaccination; and macronutrients and minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids.
