Editorial Reviews

Review

“A commonsense approach to understanding how the action of medicine
can be influenced by foods and dietary supplements…. it’s a must-read for anyone taking medication.”
—SANJAY GUPTA, MD, STAFF NEUROSURGEON, EMORY CLINIC;
CHIEF MEDICAL CORRESPONDENT, CNN


“If you plan on taking another pill in your life . . . for anything—you’ll be happy you picked up this book. Madelyn and John explain so clearly the do’s and don’ts. You have to wonder why no one has done this before! Kudos, you two!”
—HODA KOTB, COHOST, NBC TODAY SHOW

“You have to wonder why Don’t Eat This If You’re Taking That hasn’t been
written before. It’s so obviously necessary in our ‘take a pill for anything
that ails you’ culture. Kudos to Madelyn and John for making it so
powerful yet simple to understand.”
—KATHIE LEE GIFFORD, COHOST, NBC TODAY SHOW

“I’ll never take medicine again without checking Madelyn and John’s book first.”
—REGIS PHILBIN, TV HOST

“This is a phenomenally valuable, much-needed book; it answers questions
patients, including my own, have been posing for years—and for
which answers have been incredibly hard to find. Madelyn and John have found them, and presented them clearly and comprehensively. Anyone who takes
medication, or cares for anyone who takes medicine, should own a copy.
I plan to refer to mine routinely.”
—DAVID KATZ, MD, MPH, DIRECTOR, PREVENTION RESEARCH CENTER,
YALE UNIVERSITY; PRESIDENT, AMERICAN COLLEGE OF LIFESTYLE MEDICINE


"Written by husband-and-wife neuroscientists, this easy-to-understand guide gives potentially lifesaving information about foods that can interact with common prescription medicines given for hypertension, acid reflux, high cholesterol, pain relief, diabetes, migraines, and depression. Understandably, the authors couldn’t tackle every disease and drug ... Readers will undoubtedly
keep their fingers crossed for a sequel."
BOOKLIST

“This is an excellent resource for anyone taking prescription medication, collecting a wealth of vital information into one accessible volume.” Publishers Weekly
