Eating Yourself Sick
Publication Date: March 2018
In 2014, overweight people comprised 39 percent of the adult population—over a third of all people age eighteen and older. Since 1980, obesity has more than doubled worldwide in adults, and tripled in youth. This has spurred a nationwide health issue: metabolic syndrome, a cluster of diseases including obesity, fatty liver, and cardiovascular disease that can be fatal if not kept under control. Armed with decades of experience and a deep understanding of metabolic syndrome, Dr. Joe Galati looks to use this book to educate you on how to avoid these diseases. Through a strong family structure, eating habits, and regular exercise, you can avoid or reverse metabolic syndrome, and help your children—our most precious resource—avoid becoming another unhealthy statistic.
