Publisher's Summary

The skills you need to slash your risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and more - by 80 percent. Though we may not realize it, our behavior has tremendous effects on our health, well-being, and even gene expression. In Disease-Proof, renowned preventive medicine specialist Dr. David Katz reveals that we can reduce our risk of any chronic disease by an astonishing 80 percent - more than any drug or intervention could ever hope to do. Abundant scientific evidence shows that four simple things - not smoking, eating well, being active, and maintaining a healthy weight - play an enormous role in our health. Drawing upon the latest scientific evidence and decades of clinical experience, Dr. Katz arms us with the skills to make lasting changes in each of these areas. Disease-Proof equips listeners with the knowledge to manage weight, improve immune function, reprogram our genes, and prevent and reverse life-altering illnesses.

Critic Reviews

“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 audiobook.” (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 listeners 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 listen to this audiobook - sooner not later." (Dean Ornish, MD, author of The Spectrum)

Charts and tables don't work in audio

I found myself skipping large chunks of this book where the author wanted readers to draw a chart or write down a recipe. Such material doesn't work in audio. A PDF supplement should have been provided with the charts, graphs, and recipes.

I would recommend skipping this one -- the basic material is good but not particularly new or fresh. I liked the case studies, but those were few and far between.

Interesting but predictable

A good introduction into a healthy lifestyle but not the best one out there. Narrator Frequently mispronounces medical jargon which doesn’t help the story
