Berger ( Immune Power Diet ) combines two separate but related subjects in this book. The first four chapters form a biting critique of U.S. health care. Berger warns consumers of risks inherent in seeking services: hospitals that want their money, insurers that wish to avoid payment, uneducated or greedy physicians. His message is to get involved. Ask questions. Get satisfactory results. Rather abruptly, Berger moves to the topic of phantom diseasessuch as Epstein-Barr virus, premenstrual syndrome, and hypoglycemiaoften misdiagnosed or ignored by the medical profession. He gives suggestions for self-identification of these conditions and for living with them through diet and lifestyle changes. Large public libraries may want this.
