“An incredible number of people today are overweight, and many of them aren’t aware of many products that are detrimental,” said author Vincent N. Cefalu, Sr., MD. “Most people don’t realize the dangers of physical inactivity and the many dangerous over-the-counter products, environmental hazards and man-made toxins that exist. Furthermore, smokers in general don’t realize exactly how serious tobacco is.”

Inspired by his own success in losing weight along with the insights he gained in having performed over 1,500 autopsies, he pens “A Doctor’s Prescription for Longevity and Survival” (published by Xlibris) to help readers live fuller, healthier lives. In his book, Dr. Cefalu presents the perfect diet plan, along with tips on healthy eating. He unveils the unspoken truth about the dangers of obesity and diabetes, discloses a host of environmental hazards and toxins that should be avoided, and presents his views on energy drinks and dangerous over-the-counter drugs.

In writing this book, Dr. Cefalu strove to ensure that his many recommendations deal with real life situations instead of fantasies. Based on clinical experience and his own experiences with the deleterious consequences of having developed atherosclerotic disease from being over 400 pounds for over 30 years, “A Doctor’s Prescription for Longevity and Survival” presents a thoroughly informative guide to living a long and healthy life.
