Do you know what’s really good for you?

In this age of countless miracle cures, it’s vital to separate the myths that endanger your health from the medical facts you need.

FACT:
Unfiltered coffee can clog your arteries.

FACT:
Donating blood may lower your risk of heart disease.

FACT:
You don’t really need eight glasses of water a day.

FACT:
Coughing won’t help if you’re having a heart attack. (But aspirin will!)

We’ve become a nation of cyberchondriacs, diagnosing ourselves with false information and half-truths found on sketchy websites. In Medical Myths That Can Kill You, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, chief medical editor for NBC News, provides clear, practical, scientifically proven advice that can lead you to a healthier, happier life.

Discover the simple, everyday things that affect well-being, and get the information you need to revitalize your body, maintain your longevity, manage your care, and possibly even save a life–yours.

About the Author:

NANCY L. SNYDERMAN, M.D., F.A.C.S., is the chief medical editor for NBC News and reports for Nightly News with Brian Williams, Today, and MSNBC. She also has an academic appointment in the Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Pennsylvania. Prior to joining NBC News, Dr. Snyderman served as a medical correspondent for ABC News, then spearheaded a digital project at Johnson & Johnson. She has received numerous broadcasting awards and grants from the American Cancer Society and the Kellogg Foundation. Dr. Snyderman lives on the East Coast with her family. She is passionate about horses, travel, and hiking.

From AudioFile:

MEDICAL MYTHS THAT CAN KILL YOU is more of a lecture than an audiobook. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but by reading it herself, Snyderman loses the extra zing that a more experienced audiobook performer could have given it. Once again, it's a case of "reading" versus "performing." Snyderman, chief medical editor for NBC News, sounds stiff reading her own work. Because the huge amount of good information contained--for example, it's good to feed a cold but bad to starve a fever--is valuable and too much to remember, it might be better to buy the book in print and keep it on hand for reference. M.S. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
