Prescription for Life by Richard Furman, MD FACS

cover50935-medium Vascular surgeon gives readers medically sound strategies and tools to avoid prevalent health problems like heart disease, cancer, and dementia--and to turn back the clock on their physiological age to live younger longer.

This was an interesting book.  Dr. Furman is obviously very passionate about his work as well as very knowledgeable.  This book was great because it described a lot of information such as how the heart works, what can cause strokes, and most importantly, how your diet and exercise can limit the risks of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.  He also emphasized how healthy eating and exercise can prolong your life.  

What I like about this book is how it gives some great ideas for food and your diet.  He also gives great ideas for exercise, even for couch potatoes.  He also does a good job in showing the effect certain foods have on your body.  He suggests you stop eating those foods altogether which for some may be very difficult. 

This book was very informative and I feel energized to put what I learned into effect.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my opinion.
