Western nations are worried about the problems of an ageing population. But if we take into account the health trends in younger generations we arrive at a frightening prediction: for the first time in history, we have produced a generation which may not outlive its parents. Like a growing number of doctors throughout the developed world, general practitioner Carole Hungerford became concerned about these trends, and began to question a health industry based on a model of 'curing disease'. The result is Good Health in the 21st Century, an encyclopaedic health guide that provides an extraordinary amount of easily understood information and a radically different way of maintaining wellbeing. Rejecting the routine cocktails of medication, with their complicated interactions and side-effects, Dr Hungerford shows how to provide a chance for minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids to do their health-giving work. The subjects covered in Good Health in the 21st Century include asthma, arthritis, cancer, obesity, and cardiovascular disease, mental health and neurological disorders; hormone replacement therapy and vaccination; macronutrients and minerals, vitamins, and essential fatty acids. This monumental work will be used by parents, patients, and doctors for years to come.
