Editorial Reviews

Review

“David Katz is among my most respected colleagues. When it comes to using lifestyle as medicine, there simply isn’t a higher authority. In Disease-Proof, Dr. Katz advances a mission we share: empowering people to use what we know about the power of lifestyle to promote health. This is an important book.”—Mehmet Oz, MD
 
“By offering insight into the hidden and not-so-hidden threats to our collective waistlines and our health and providing step-by-step advice to reverse the current obesity epidemic and the chronic diseases that go with it, Disease-Proof will empower readers to take control of their current and future health. Anyone who's interested in protecting themselves and their loved ones from these problems will want to read this book—sooner not later."—Dean Ornish, MD, author of The Spectrum
 
“At a time when 75 percent of our health care spending is for preventable, chronic diseases, and when we are facing an epidemic of legal drug dependency, Disease-Proof is a book we desperately need -- a reminder that, in more ways than we may realize, our health is in our hands. Dr. Katz's conclusion that we all have the ability to lead healthier lives is sensible, well-reasoned, empowering, and based on the latest scientific evidence and decades of clinical experience.”-- Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post Media Group
 
“Dr. Katz knows how challenging the pursuit of both health and a healthy weight can be. He also has a unique ability to convert his knowledge and insights into practical programs and tools – a talent richly displayed in Disease-Proof. If you want to build better health and a better future, this book makes an excellent tool kit.”—David A. Kessler, MD, former Commissioner, FDA and author of The End of Overeating
 
"Comprehensive, accessible, and indispensable, Disease-Proof makes a compelling case for how we can reclaim our medical destinies and prevent many of the chronic diseases that are currently afflicting adults and children alike. It's an urgently needed wake-up call for millions of Americans who believe their health is largely beyond their control."—David Satcher, MD, PhD, former Surgeon General and Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and founder of the Satcher Health Leadership Institute, Morehouse School of Medicine
 
Disease-Proof is not only about knowing what to do to stay healthy; it’s also about developing the skills to apply that knowledge.  Katz and Colino make the skills look easy. I especially appreciate how they encourage readers to take responsibility for the health of others as well as themselves and work toward creating a healthy society for all.”—Marion Nestle, author of What to Eat and Professor of Nutrition, Food Studies, and Public Health at New York University
 
“The advice in Disease-Proof, if applied, will lead to a healthy, vibrant life. Everyone needs this information.”—Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

“Disease-Proof uniquely addresses what individuals can do to promote their own health, and what we can and should do together to help us all get there from here. Just about everybody stands to benefit from reading this book.” —Joy Bauer, MS, RD, CDN, nutrition and health expert for The TODAY Show and author of Joy Bauer's Food Cures
