Review

Dr. David B. Agus is one of the world s leading cancer doctors and pioneering biomedical researchers. He s the host of the new eye-opening health special, The End Of Illness, airing nationwide on PBS (check local listings and times), which is based on his no.1 New York Times best seller. In the program, Dr. Agus proposes a new model for health; treating the body as a system, sharing how people can actually apply his information, and insights on how technology will help; with the end goal of people again, dying of old age. According to Dr. Agus, the one-size-fits-all approach toward treating illness is a model of the past. If you want to live a long, vibrant, robust life well into your 90 s then you need to be proactive with your health. Start today...it s easier than you think! --davidagus.com

I am sure it is a wonderful book but i find reading discs difficult and not very much fun. So I have read very little of it.

The information inthe Book is not aonly usefull but simple for understanding. A lot of new concepts on personal caretaking and some disrruptive criteria on what one consider to be right thing to do and eat and drink.

IMHO, Dr. Agus appears to be trying to sell his book, which I have not read. As far as the DVD is concerned, there is little substance to it and quite a bit of innuendo. For instance, to prove a point, he cites a study from 1953 on heart disease to prove one of his premises. The study lists the difference in initial instance of heart disease between drivers (inactive) and ticket takers (active) and is shown in rate per 1000. The TTs had almost 1 per 1000 and the Drivers has less than 2 per 1000. 1/1000 is hardly a significant finding and why couldn't he find a more recent study? The assumption has to be that there are none?
the next example is even worse. the study is from 1932 and is showing Coronary Heart Disease in heavy and light workers. It is listed in death rates per million, with the highest rate being 1000 per million and the rest are even lower. Again, this is 1/1000 or less and along with the age of the study is hardly a statistic upon which to base a huge lifestyle change today.
On the other hand, when he makes many of his own claims, he usually does not cite studies to prove what he says will work.
On the surface, I did not find the DVD at all enlightening. Perhaps you could check the book out of the library to see if it has any useful information.
