About the Author
Dr. Barry Sears is recognized as one of the world's leading medical researchers on the hormonal effects of food. He is the author of the number one New York Times bestseller The Zone as well as Mastering the Zone, Zone-Perfect Meals in Minutes, Zone Food Blocks, A Week in the Zone, The Age-Free Zone, The Top 100 Zone Foods, The Soy Zone, The Omega Rx Zone, Zone Meals in Seconds, and What to Eat in the Zone. His books have sold more than five million copies and have been translated into twenty-two languages in forty countries. He continues his research on the inflammatory process as the president of the nonprofit Inflammation Research Foundation in Marblehead, Massachusetts. The father of two grown daughters, he lives in Swampscott, Massachusetts, with his wife, Lynn.
The initiator of much public discussion about blood chemistry and chronic disease, Dr. Sears explains the importance of sub-clinical levels of inflammation in joints, tissues, and blood vessels. Inflammation is the number one cause of most diseases and much of the pain of old age--both of which are preventable with attention to how eating patterns influence the ebb and flow of hormones in the body. As in his previous audios, the author's resonant voice is upbeat, making his ideas difficult to put aside, especially if you're over 50 and not feeling so good. His lesson makes proper eating sound so easy that most listeners will wonder why they're ignoring this advice. T.W. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
