Description

A bold look at how commercial agendas distort the real science behind health and fitness studies and misinform the public about how to live a healthy life
 
Researcher Timothy Caulfield talks with experts in medicine, pharmaceuticals, health and fitness, and even tries out many of the health fads himself, in order to test their scientific validity, dispel the myths, and illuminate the path to better health.

Praise For The Cure for Everything

“A Freakonomics for the health industry.”—Justin Sorbara-Hosker, Indigo Lifestyle blog

“[An] entertaining and thought-provoking slam.”—Publisher's Weekly

“[The] Cure for Everything is insightful and entertaining…Gently and with humour, Caulfield guides readers through the funhouse world of health sciences.”—National Post (Canada) 

“Timothy Caulfield is a science nerd. He’s also a health nut. And he’s fed up with all the bogus diet claims, expensive fitness programs and weird information that poses as scientific fact. . . . [He] spent a year combing through research and interviewing top scientists. He also exercised like a maniac and ate an ultra-healthy diet. His search for the truth resulted in . . . The Cure for Everything!”—Nancy J. White, The Toronto Star
