Description
Every day, new medical studies tout the next big thing that will save your life. But how can you tell which claims are real and which are either ill-considered or simply false? Harvard Medical School professor and faculty dean Sanjiv Chopra and cardiologist Alan Lotvin provide authoritative answers in this highly readable collection of 38 detailed essays (originally published as Doctor Chopra Says), discussing topics from "Are nutritional supplements a multi-billion-dollar hope or hype?" to "Can you prevent baldness?" Learn about the best cancer-screening methods, finding the right diet, the remarkable power of coffee to prevent disease, the actual hazards of cell phones, and the true risks and benefits of vaccinations.

"With wisdom and wit, Sanjiv Chopra and Alan Lotvin show how to navigate the vast sea of health information, from vaccines to vitamins, cold remedies to colonoscopies, marijuana to mammograms. The reader will benefit from this prescription of a healthy dose of skepticism and common sense."—Jerome Groopman
