    Oncologist and cancer gene hunter Theo Ross delivers the first authoritative go-to for people facing a genetic predisposition for cancer. There are 13 million people with cancer in the United States, and it’s estimated that about 1.3 million of these cases are hereditary. Yet despite advanced training in cancer genetics and years of practicing medicine, Dr. Theo Ross was never certain whether the history of cancers in her family was simple bad luck or a sign that they were carriers of a cancer-causing genetic mutation. Then she was diagnosed with melanoma, and for someone with a dark complexion, melanoma made no sense. It turned out there was a genetic factor at work. Using her own family’s story, the latest science of cancer genetics, and her experience as a practicing physician, Ross shows listeners how to spot the patterns of inherited cancer, how to get tested for cancer-causing genes, and what to do if you have one. With a foreword by Siddartha Mukherjee, prize-winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies, this will be the first authoritative go-to for people facing inherited cancer. This book empowers listeners to face their genetic heritage without fear and to make decisions that will keep them and their families healthy.

    For decades, Dr. Jeffrey Bland has been on the cutting edge of Functional Medicine, which seeks to pinpoint and prevent the cause of illness rather than treat its symptoms. Managing chronic diseases accounts for three quarters of our total healthcare costs because we’re masking these illnesses with pills and temporary treatments rather than addressing their underlying causes. Worse, only treating symptoms leads us down the path of further illness. In The Disease Delusion, Dr. Bland explains what Functional Medicine is and what it can do for you. While advances in modern science have nearly doubled our lifespans in only four generations, our quality of life has not reached its full potential. Outlining the reasons why we suffer chronic diseases from asthma and diabetes to obesity, arthritis and cancer to a host of other ailments, Dr. Bland offers achievable, science-based solutions that can alleviate these common conditions and offers a roadmap for a lifetime of wellness.

    A revolutionary, personalized guide to preventing heart disease based on genetic factors Heart disease is the number one cause of death in America. It affects 81 million Americans and is the culprit in one of every two deaths in the United States. Most people think that they are not at risk of a heart attack if they control their cholesterol and blood pressure, but they aren’t aware of other major risk factors. The good news is that with the right information and strategies, heart attacks are preventable—even if heart disease runs in the family. In Beat the Heart Attack Gene, world-renowned cardiovascular specialists Bradley Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, ARNP present a new model for understanding and preventing heart disease. Using their cutting-edge Bale/Doneen Method, they explain the three different genetic types of cholesterol profiles and tailor treatments for each type.
