In this age of information explosion, the reporting of medical research breakthroughs to the public often creates conflicting headlines. We wonder whether we're getting the best care, the newest medicines, and the most effective treatments for whatever it is that ails us. If you've been looking for one source you can trust for the most accurate, up-to-date health and medical information, Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld's Breakthrough Health is it.

In this volume, the first in a yearly series, America's favorite doctor describes the most important, up-to-the-minute medical discoveries in a convenient, easy-to-read format. Dr. Rosenfeld treats his readers as if they were his own patients, explaining in simple yet concrete terms everything from Alzheimer's disease to vascular disease. He distills the most relevant information from piles of research only a doctor could understand. For example, are you aware that there's a common, over-the-counter drug that may help prevent breast cancer? Do you know about the blood test that can indicate vulnerability to heart attacks and stroke even when all other predictors are normal? You've heard that eating fish reduces your risk of heart disease, but does it really contain too much mercury? You'll find the answers in these pages, along with many other safe, practical, bottom-line insights--advice that will help you live a long and healthy life.

Review:

Thanks to years of conflicting press reports and masses of Internet information, educating yourself on health concerns has become totally confusing--it's tempting to just give up. Before you do that, give Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld's Breakthrough Health a chance. Arranged by health issue, it covers 167 topics from alcoholism and the Atkins diet to uterine fibroids and wrinkles, looking at everything from recent diagnostic developments to the proper use of herbs that have been around for centuries.

Every age is covered, starting with the prevention of eczema in toddlers while mom is still pregnant to delaying or preventing Alzheimer's through proper diet and a daily anti-inflammatory. Life-threatening diseases like colon and breast cancer, stroke, and heart disease are discussed, as well as relatively minor concerns like bad breath and UTIs. Even with the variety of issues discussed, it's never overwhelming--the longest section is less than 30 pages, and most are covered in just a few. Each entry includes sections on "What's New" and "The Bottom Line," which are quick but helpful summaries that recommend a direct action--or in some cases, a lack of direct action.

Best of all, Rosenfeld keeps his wry sense of humor throughout, joking about his brother John always calling the men's room "Isadore" in the section on enlarged prostates, and recalling the old Packard slogan "Just ask the man (or woman) who owns one!" when discussing herpes sores. With an excellent blend of the latest research, common sense, old remedies, and humor, Rosenfeld provides a book with answers for everyone. --Jill Lightner
