Healthy Books for 2019 from Vera Vos, Nurse Practitioner

by Vera Vos

I love to start the New Year with a list of books I want to read. There are so many genres to choose from not to mention fiction or non-fiction. For the most part,  I’m not particular whether a book was written recently or if it’s an old classic. But, when it comes to health related topics, I like to see what’s new in non-fiction. My favorite health sub topics are those that offer insights that can change health for the better and slow aging especially using cutting edge nutrition research. I also like those that describe the latest breakthroughs for healing chronic disease like heart disease, cancer, autoimmune disorders and mental health. 

I find new books I want to read by relying on others whom I trust to make recommendations. The Food Revolution Network is one website that I keep track of. It was started by John Robbins of Baskin Robbins fame, who left the ice cream business to focus on health and sustainability for ourselves and our environment. He is the author of numerous old classics like Diet for a New America and The Food Revolution. 

Luckily,  the Food Revolution Network has a list of 8 “must read” books about health for 2019.

Check them out and see if you find one or two that sparks your interest. 

Some of the books include:

Undo It!: How Simple Lifestyle Changes Can Reverse Most Chronic Diseases by Dean Ornish, MD and Anne Ornish

The Truth About Food: Why Pandas Eat Bamboo and People Get Bamboozled by David Katz, MD

Happy reading!
