About the Book

Nobody can possibly care about your health as much as you. The sooner you realize it, the faster you can do something about it.

Running to the doctor, and the pharmacy afterward, has become the norm for most health issues. If approached with common sense, however, many could be handled from home. Health isn't a right unless you fight for it. I'm the Un-Druggist, a pharmacist disgusted with what commonly passes for health care today in the U.S. The truth about healthy living often conflicts with those common medical beliefs.

Truth is our only chance.

About the Author

"Too Many People Take Too Many Drugs". That's my motto based on over 3 decades of experience and study in pharmacy, ethics and philosophy. I sometimes refer to myself as a "recovering pharmacist", not meaning a problem with abuse. But over the years my awareness of the potential risks from drugs has increased to the point where I could never work again in a "traditional" drugstore. I retain my license to practice, but I can never bring myself to participate in a process that I know in my heart is excessive, wrong-headed, and extremely dangerous. My pharmacy is the driving force in curbing the overuse and over-prescribing of cholesterol lowering drugs in the United States. I live in Aurora, Illinois and enjoy shotgun sports, fine cigars, reading, and watching my grandchildren grow.
