I really enjoyed the information presented in this book. It was an eye opener. I learned quite a bit of new information. Some of the shockers were that MSG was created to cause normal rats to have diabetes for understanding diabetes in humans. Another is that Splenda was invented as an insecticide thqt disrupts and destroys the DNA. I was enraged with all of the information I learned about the big pharma companies, cover-ups, and how the data, or information gets altered. This book is written by ...more

This book has had a massive influence on how I see health and my own contribution to stay healthy and fit. i always had a deep distrust towards drugs and cures created in pharmaceutical labs. When my doctor prescribed a daily dos of Allopurinol to get the high uric acid levels down, I started to research on the side effects of this drug and uncovered horror stories beyond one's imagination. This book has given me so much guidance and information to control my polyarthritis, a form of inflammatio ...more

Got this for free and pretty much hate-read half of the book hoping it would get better. It didn't, so I stopped reading. All the poor writing and exclamation points aside (fun idea: play a drinking game wherein every time you encounter an exclamation point you take a drink. You might be dead by page 10, however), I'd wager Shane Ellison purposefully writes to the type of person who has little to no science training. It shows. I'd also wager he banks on the fact that no one will try to check the ...more

Good information, seems well-researched. I'd prefer a more formal type of writing, but that's a small complaint. The important thing is the information presented. It has inspired me to try some of the remedies recommended. I am particularly interested in how to choose the appropriate supplements, and how to safely wean yourself off the prescribed meds you are taking. I do believe that what he says is true: the big pharmaceutical companies are more concerned with lining their pockets than with im ...more

Finally a book that

Tells the truth about meds, supplements, diet and exercise! Every doctor should be required to read this book! They've been brainwashed by pharmaceutical industry and mainstream media hype. Prescription drugs should be for emergency use only yet we get them like candy, thanks to big pharmaceutical companies bribing doctors and nonstop ads

I liked this informative book and a lot can be gleaned from this it. I didn't need all the case studies but those new to this kind of book will probably enjoy it. I got it to find out about the best supplements without fillers and extra money. Big pharma is covered along with supplement mfg.s for various supplements.

This book delivers for those on heart, anxiety, prenatal, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer meds etc. It is informative and gives references and web pages for assistance.

Shane has an updated version of this book but I cannot access it. When I buy the new version, it shows the new version but delivers the old version. Very frustrating.

In our fast paced world of processed and fast foods, the National Center on Health Statistics estimates the result is 90% of the US population is nutrient deficient. These defiencies result in disease; often life threatening and chronic. In his book Ellison, aka "The People's Chemist" gives great practical information on inexpensive supplements that anyone can incorporate into their lives to maintain their health and avoid chronic issues. This book is written in easy to understand language and E ...more

A good book. The pharmacy way of life is not for me and this book reinforces my thoughts with lots of options for improving my health.

I only read a few chapters that would actually pertain to me. Have yet to try any of these herbal supplements. If they work, I'll give the book a higher rating.

Everyone should read this book! I would give it more stars if possible. You owe it to yourself and the ones you love to learn this information to achieve better health. Shane is an Organic Chemist who use to work for a big Pharmaceutical company. What you don't know (and won't learn) CAN hurt you!!! Very enjoyable reading, too! He has a way with explaining things that everyone can understand.

This is a pretty good "reference" book. I found it interesting and quite informative. I finished it right away the first time around, but I keep going back and re-reading certain sections. In fact, I've purchased a couple more as gifts - one for my daughter. If you're into a more natural way, or even if you're not, I think you'll find this at least a read to make you think. I do recommend it.

Very useful and informative. I'm always interested in natural alternatives. But I'd recommend a paperback version, which, for a non-fiction is just so much easier and quicker to reference than an e-book.

I think its amazing people don't know what big pharma is doing to people just by following the Drs advice and I am shocked that drs are still giving the medicines to people knowing it kills them.

Great information from the author and his reputable cited sources. Biggest win for me is the very practical guidance given by the author. This could be a habit-changing read.

This is the Kindle edition, while I am actually reading the print edition. I clicked the wrong edition when I was adding it to my currently-reading shelf.
