Rating
Don't Die Young is a revelatory tour of the human body, which accompanied the major BBC2 television series. Focusing on our vital organs- from the beating chambers of the heart to the coiling tunnels of the intestines - Dr Alice Roberts explains how they work and how to keep them in tip-top condition. There are many aspects of your health that you can control, and she explains how you can reduce your risk of suffering many disorders, from cystitis to cancer, and headaches to heart disease. With authoritative advice, amazing photographs and clear diagrams, she cuts through the jargon. (What exactly are antioxidants and trans-fatty acids?) This book will change the way you think about your body, and you will be better equipped to combat disease - and to treat any health advice with very healthy scepticism.
