This is a marketing scheme and I will tell you why below:

Dr. Wallach is a fraud and goes off the deep end after he basically denounced the entire medical industry as rich fat cats who do what they want for profit and nothing else. Maybe he’s jealous because if he was a real doctor he wouldn’t be denouncing his industry after spending 20+ years living in poverty and studying to become one! Doctors go through ten years of medical schooling and spend 3-8 years in an apprenticeship barely making eno
Excellent revealations about the health care industry. My advice everybody should read this before going to the grocery store or pharmacy store.

This is another important book for those seeking to improve their health by finding alternative solutions.

The author's basic tenet is that all diseases and health complaints are due to a lack of minerals/vitamins. The two minerals we all most need to supplement our diet with are selenium and copper. Selenium protects against heart disesase, cancer and MS, and, notably, is an essential supplement for women prior to pregnancy, since Wallach brought to light and proved years ago that the cause of c
This is a good book if you are looking at alternative medicines.
Dr. Wallach stated that minerals, which we don't get enough of, are the catalyst that helps our bodies assimilate vitamins. I've ordered his Youngivity products. I've tried a lot of different vitamin supplements and I have never found a vitamin that gives me the strength and energy that his product does. The book wasn't exactly what I was expecting but it was an entertaining and fascinating read. Well worth the time.
Snake oil.

Wallach is a glorified vitamin salesman. He sells absurdly marked up vitamin-mineral products. You can buy the equivalent of what he sells elsewhere for a small fraction of what he charges.

His whole pitch is disingenuous as h-ll.

Look no farther than the title:

"Dead Doctors Don't Lie"

OK, I get it, Joel. You know better than every MD. You are an animal doctor, and you have a pseudoscience-based naturopathic degree, so, suddenly, you somehow know ALL about people doctoring.

Uh-huh. Right.

The author is recommended by Benny Hinn. That's says enough. As others have noted his data is flawed. I have seen so many of these books come and go. They fight medical history and provide false hope for people who expect to live to be 120+. "Lord when I'm too tired to serve YOU, take me."
It's a poorly written book with a very important message: You can't get everything you need to be healthy from just the food you eat.

He seems to have written the book without crafting an outline first. Yes, it is chronological, which helps, but he moves from thought to thought without opening paragraphs or closing sentences or other structures of good composition. My point is that people may lose out on the overall message because the book is an unpleasant read.

loved the book!!! I am on the product and it has changed my life. I have crohn's disease and was looking for a more natural cure. :)
It was just ok. The author's story was mostly interesting and this was mostly just a story of his life. It convinced me to look into the amounts of minerals in my multi-vitamin and add a magnesium supplement (since my multi is severly lacking).

The book went into far too much detail about his life, though, without adding any more information than "here is more proof that you need minerals". I really lost interest toward the end, when he started talking about his various business dealings with th

Awesome, awesome, awesome!
Interesting. Like the beginning which deals with his experience as a veterinarian and his growing awareness of mineral deficiency as a source of illness in humans as well. Bogged down for me as he joined the world of multilevel marketing.
Contained some interesting, controversial information regarding the science of illness and supplements, but too much opinion and biography for a higher rating.

Interesting ideas. It will be interesting to see how his ideas hold up to time.

This book is an absolute must read.

Chronic disease is on the rise in the United States. We are spending more on health care than all the rest of the nations combined. But is it working? Here in the United States we are 60th in Life Expectancy. We rank 41st in terms of Infant Mortality and 1 in 3 Americans are either diabetic or pre-diabetic. And we are the most obese nation in the world. So the answer is No! The solution is simple. Dr. Wallach say's, "It's not just what you eat that kills you b
