Think Before You Swallow: The Art of Staying Healthy in a Health-obessed World by Noel O'Hare
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An entertaining, fact-filled miscellany of health tips. Health has become a minefield of competing claims and contradictory advice. A new health scare emerges every week, followed by a new medical breakthrough, followed by newly disguised guidelines to guarantee a great old age. And then there are the fad diets and snake oil cures. It is an era of high-anxiety for many of us. Focusing on mental and physical health, the book covers topics such as the use of drugs and herbal remedies, the real benefits of activities such as gardening and reading and the perils of supermarket shopping and foreign travel. Provocative and entertaining, the book aims to provide readers with sound information and guiding principals to help them make good choices about health care. And the news is not all bad.
