Francis Bacon, one of the most notable fathers of modern science, is famously known for the phrase, “Knowledge is power.” Yet, despite the tremendous amount of information available to consumers these days regarding health supplements, there is an equal amount of misinformation, making it difficult for people to know what they are getting. The goal of Health and the Human Machine is to empower the average consumer with accurate, understandable data, enabling them to make safe, intelligent and informed decisions when choosing health supplements.
For example, did you know that: Taking standard levels of Vitamin E can actually lower your life expectancy? MEGA B vitamins may increase your chance of heart failure? Vitamin D, taken in the proper doses, can help reduce many diseases? Synergistic supplementation can help keep your cell membranes functional and fluid, reversing the common signs of aging? Health and the Human Machine is an easy to read wealth of knowledge that approaches the human body as an engineer would a blueprint. This invaluable tool will help guide you, using scientific and medical principles, to find and understand which supplements can increase your longevity, beauty, and energy as well as athletic and cognitive performance.
