First let me say I am a big fan of Dr. Roger's Detoxify or Die. I have read it four times and have highly recommended to family members. Dr. Roger's latest book, however, is not in the same league as D or D. For example, she states at the beginning of Chapter 5 that it should be clear that cholesterol is not the cause of coronary heart disease. Yet, she devotes a whole chapter on using supplements to lower cholesterol. If it's not the cause and is only the messenger, why would we want to lower cholesterol and not address the root cause? Also, there are far too many references to her newsletter and previous books. When I buy a book like this, I want new, useful information, not a passive sales pitch. The information she covers here is nothing she hasn't addressed before. This is very disappointing, as she puts out a new book every three years. I honestly feel she could have covered a different topic then cholesterol and was surprised by the choice.

I received this wonderful book a couple of days ago and find it is very hard to put down! It is very interesting and informative, easy to understand. I did not know that too low cholesterol is not good either! The Table of Contents is very detailed, listing all subtitles and corresponding page numbers, making it very easy to find what you are looking for, as well as an index. Alzheimer's is reversible! I own all of Dr. Sherry Rogers' books and have learned from all of them. Her 8-page, Total Wellness Monthly Newsletter, which is mentioned in the book, is excellent as well. I highly recommend this book!

For anyone dealing with a serious illness, or that wants to avoid a serious illness, the books by Dr Sherry Rogers are absolutely essential reading.

Her books explain in a very easy to understand manner how to deal with the causes of disease using cutting edge medical knowledge, technology and testing, and not just how to mask symptoms with drugs and other superficial treatments (which lead to worsening problems in other areas of health).

As Dr Sherry Rogers writes in `Detoxify or Die',

`I have to laugh when people ask me if I do alternative, herbal, acupuncture or holistic medicine. 'No,' I reply. 'We do state-of-the-art medicine. In other words, we find the biochemical, nutritional and environmental causes and cures rather than blindly drugging everything. Sure, herbs are gentler, safer and more physiologic than drugs and holistic medicine attempts to incorporate many diverse modalities, etc. But there is no substitute for finding the underlying biochemical causes and cures. This is real medicine. This is where medicine should and would have been decades ago, if it had not been abducted by the pharmaceutical industry.'

The question is not whether you should read a book by Dr Rogers, but WHICH book of hers you should start with! Choosing which books to start with can be difficult and a bit overwhelming, as there are quite a few. My opinion, is as follows:

1. For healthy people that want to stay well, healthy older people who want to avoid degenerative diseases as they get older, or parents who want to keep themselves and their kids well, then the book you need is `Detoxify or Die.' This one book will probably contain everything you need to know as prevention is so much easier than cure!

This book was brought to my attention by my insurance man. He suggested it would be helpful in my research on Cholesterol and exactly what the numbers should be. It has been very interesting. I highly recommend this book for anyone who has been diagnosed with a Cholesterol problem.

I have not finished the book The Cholesterol Hoax, but am very interested in the research and findings of Dr. Rogers. This book was recommended by my lifelong best male (as compared to my wife, being my very best friend) friend. He is now a physician and surgeon.

I will complete my reading of this very interesting and informative book. I may rate it again after completing my reading and at this point in time, I am interested in reading her other books.

The book is a clear statement about the hypocrisy that the pharmaceutical companies are implementing in order to get rich without caring for the patients' health. I recommend that everyone who is taking medicine to lower cholesterol and triglycerides to read this book.

Lots of very good information. I recommend taking notes as you read . The author constantly repeats things (by design) but it makes the book longer and less coherent than it could be. I do recommend it.
