Summary:"In Super Immunity, Dr. Fuhrman will explain why some of us get sick more regularly than others and offer a proven program to stay healthy through the year. Dr. Fuhrman argues 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. 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."--
