HYPE: A Doctor’s Guide to Medical Myths, Exaggerated Claims and Bad Advice – How to Tell What’s Real and What’s Not

Hype: A Doctor’s Guide to Medical Myths, Exaggerated Claims and Bad Advice–How to Tell What’s Real and What’s Not by Nina Shapiro, M.D. with Kristin Loberg is an engaging and clear-eyed examination at the real science behind our most common beliefs and assumptions in the health sphere. There is a lot of misinformation thrown around these days. Headlines tell us to do this, not that—all in the name of living longer, better, thinner, younger. Dr. Shapiro’s jargon-free, balanced book distinguishes between the falsehoods and the evidence-backed truth. In her work at Harvard and UCLA, with more than twenty years of experience in both clinical and academic medicine, she helps patients make important health decisions every day. She’s bringing those lessons to life here with a blend of personal storytelling and science. Hype covers topics as diverse as exercise, nutrition, supplements, alternative medicine, vaccines, and the benefits and drawbacks of medical testing.
