Description
Can we live robustly until our last breath? Do we have to suffer from debilitating conditions and sickness? Is it possible to add more vibrant years to our lives? David Agus tackles these fundamental questions and dismantles misperceptions about what "health" really means. A professor of medicine and engineering as well as an internationally renowned oncologist, Agus presents an eye-opening picture of the human body as a system: how it works, and how it fails. He explains how our personal genetic heritage plays a key role in our individual health, emphasizing that there is no "one size fits all" health practice—each of us must understand and become advocates for our unique bodies, and here he shows us exactly how to do that.

"In this seminal book, Dr. David Agus presents a brilliant new model of health based on the body as a complex system with an emphasis on prevention. The End of Illness may reframe everything you thought you knew about health. It is both provocative and inspiring. Highly recommended."—Dean Ornish
