9781845904456: Get Off the Sofa: A Presciption for a Healthier Life

For years people all over the world have been inflicting more illness and suffering on themselves than any war has ever done. The fat guy smoking a cigarette. The thin woman rendered raw by alcohol. The kid stuffing another fat-laden fast-food meal into his mouth. The millions upon millions of couch potatoes who haven't done a lick of decent exercise since they passed puberty.And sometimes it is not so sudden - the slow suffocation of emphysema, the long autumn of health related unemployment, the desperate loneliness of congestive cardiac failure. Is all of this preventable? Not all of it, no. Some diseases just happen even with the best diet and intentions in the world. But most of it is preventable, if we would only change the way we live.

This is not a book full of references and science, but just a book about getting healthy and staying healthy for life! So take charge of your future and read this book.

Book Description Crown House Publishing, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. For years I have watched people in their millions inflict more illness and suffering on themselves than any war has ever done. What is this biblical plague, this monstrosity of suffering? Self inflicted illness. The fat guy smoking a cigarette. The thin woman flayed raw by alcohol. The kid jamming another fat laden time bomb into its face. The millions and millions of couch potatoes who haven t done a minutes decent exercise since they passed puberty. And what happens to all these millions upon millions of people? Nothing for most of the time. But then. But then it all changes. Sometimes suddenly - a heart attack, a stroke, cancer. Life changing, irrevocable events that stuff their lives and the lives of everyone around them. Or not so suddenly - the slow suffocation of emphysema, the long autumn of health related unemployment, the desperate loneliness of congestive cardiac failure. And that doesn t half wreck the lives of everyone around them. Is it preventable? Not all of it no. Some diseases just happen even with the best will in the world. But is most of it preventable? Yes, absolutely yes. If you don t like plain English don t read it. If you aren t prepared to apply it to yourself and take responsibility for your own health, don t read it. It isn t a book full of references and science. It s just a book about being healthy!. Bookseller Inventory # AA99781845904456
