"Every year in September the spectre of cold and flu season arrives. It has become a fact of life. In every office and in every family, there are those who get sick regularly and those who manage to stay healthy through it all. Dr. Fuhrman explains why some of us get sick more regularly than others and offer a proven program to stay healthy through the year, arguing that our current approach to disease is doing far more harm than good. He asserts that flu shots, antibiotics, supplements and alternative treatments are not the answer and can actually make us more sick. He explains why our current efforts are failing us. The truth is far too many have depleted or compromised immune systems. This is no surprise given antibiotics are prescribed with every cough and sniffle and it is too easy to get simply stuck in a vicious cycle of a cold or flu that passes from one family or office member to the next before you have a chance to get healthy again. The answer, he suggests, is as simple as what we eat. Super Immunity offers a detailed, proven and easy-to-follow program for escaping the sick bug and returning us to health and well-being.

This book is really interesting and seems to be based on scientific studies. I agree with a lot of his points (more veggies, less meat, less drugs, more exercise...).

Unfortunately some assumptions lack support and it feels sometimes that there is NO other truth than his... and reading people stories makes me feel as they talk about him as if a guru, a bit disturbing...

Excellent! Very detailed look at the research on phytochemicals and other factors that contribute to a strong immune system, even citing studies on things that shrink cancer tumors.
