More About the Author

Jay Cohen M.D. is a nationally respected expert on prescription medications, avoiding side effects, and natural remedies. Dr. Cohen is an Adjunct (voluntary) Associate Professor of Family and Preventive Medicine and of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego.

After being diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2011, Dr. Cohen averted radical treatments with their serious, long-term adverse effects by obtaining leading-edge diagnostic tests that more accurately defined his cancer as non-threatening. Because most men are not told about these tests, and because tens of thousands of men with prostate cancer get surgery or radiation that they do not need, Dr. Cohen wrote his most recent book, Prostate Cancer Breakthroughs, to provide men with a step by step guide dealing with this dangerous disease.

Dr. Cohen earned his medical degree at Temple University in 1971. After completing his internship, he practiced general medicine and subsequently conducted ground-breaking research at UCLA in 1973 on acupuncture and pain. In 1974, he undertook a residency in psychiatry and psychopharmacology at the University of California, San Diego, and has practiced these specialties since 1977.

Beginning in 1990, Dr. Cohen undertook independent research in pharmacology, specifically on the causes of medication side effects that cause more than 100,000 deaths and 2 million hospitalizations each year. The emphasis of his work has been on prevention, and his identification of a substantial proportion of the population that is medication-sensitive is groundbreaking. Since 1996, he has published his findings in 8 books and leading medical journals, as well as articles in consumer publications such as Newsweek, Bottom Line Health, and Life Extension Magazine. Dr. Cohen's work has been featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Consumer Reports, Wall Street Journal, Modern Maturity, Women's Day, and virtually every major magazine and newspaper in America. His book, Over Dose: The Case Against The Drug Companies (Tarcher/Putnam, Nov. 2001), received unanimously excellent reviews including from Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Dr. Cohen has been featured on more than 100 radio programs across America including the "People's Pharmacy" and National Public Radio. He has spoken at conferences of patients, doctors, drug industry executives, and attorneys. In October 2001, during the anthrax scare, his medical journal article on severe reactions to Cipro, Levaquin, and other fluoroquinolone antibiotics triggered a national debate on the best treatment for anthrax and prompted the U.S. Centers for Disease Control to withdraw its recommendation for the initial use of Cipro in anthrax exposure cases. In November 2002, Dr. Cohen was the keynote speaker at the Annual Science Day of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Clinical Pharmacology Division. He has debated top FDA officials on drug safety at conferences including the American Society for Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics and the Drug Information Association.

He is also the Chairman of the Medical Advisory Committee of The Erythromelalgia Association, as well as a Fellow of the American College of Nutrition. Dr. Cohen conducts his research and writing, and his practice in psychiatry and psychopharmacology, in Del Mar, CA.

For Cardiac patients, (like myself) who use to take Statins before reading this book, and for anyone not currently taking Statin drugs, but may be approaching the time when their medical practioners will prescribe Statins, I most heartily encourage obtaining and reading this book, along with Dr. Barbara H. Roberts, M.D. book, (The Truth about Statins) and following those readings, anyone still acceptive to being placed on Statins, all I can say is, "you are brave Souls, but for me, I couldn't get permanently off of Statins, "FAST ENOUGH !"

it's good to hear the facts on statin alternatives--most doctors don't give anything else a chance--and the side effects of statins are unbelievable while some alternatives are natural with minimal or even no side effects--why not give alternatives a chance before rushing into statins that may cause other major problems??
