andlt;Bandgt;CAN WE LIVE ROBUSTLY UNTIL OUR LAST BREATH? andlt;/Bandgt;Do we have to suffer from debilitating conditions and sickness? Is it possible to add more vibrant years to our lives? In the #1 andlt;Iandgt;New York Times andlt;/Iandgt;bestselling andlt;Iandgt;The End of Illnessandlt;/Iandgt;, Dr. David Agus tackles these fundamental questions and dismantles misperceptions about what and#8220;healthand#8221; really means. Presenting an eye-opening picture of the human body and all the ways it worksand#8212;and failsand#8212;Dr. Agus shows us how a new perspective on our individual health will allow us to achieve a long, vigorous life. andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Offering insights and access to powerful new technologies that promise to transform medicine, Dr. Agus emphasizes his belief that there is no and#8220;rightand#8221; answer, no master guide that is and#8220;one size fits all.and#8221; Each one of us must get to know our bodies in uniquely personal ways, and he shows us exactly how to do that. A bold call for all of us to become our own personal health advocates, andlt;Iandgt;The End of Illness andlt;/Iandgt;is a moving departure from orthodox thinking.
