Why do some of us get sick with greater frequency than others? What makes us more susceptible to illness? Are we doomed
to get sick when our coworkers and family members do? Is there a secret to staying healthy?
Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a leading expert and board-certified medical specialist in prevention and reversing disease, offers
a comprehensive guide to superior health.
Based on the latest scientific research, Super Immunity shows us how we can become almost totally resistant to colds,
influenza, and other infections.
The evidence is overwhelming: we can supercharge our immune system to protect our bodies against disease - everything
from the common cold to cancer. Nutritional science has made phenomenal strides and discoveries in recent years, and
when this new research is applied it enables us to seize control of our health like never before. Dr. Fuhrman explains
this new science, providing everything you need to know to put this knowledge into action in your kitchen and in your
What we eat has everything to do with our health, and, unfortunately, too many of us are living with a severely depleted
immune function. Our dietary choices are making us sicker, shortening our lives, and costing us billions of dollars in
doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications. But Dr. Fuhrman doesn't believe more medical care is the

We are eating too many highly processed foods, foods with added sweeteners, and animal fats and protein. At the same
time, we are not eating enough fruits, beans, seeds, and vegetables, which leaves us lacking in hundreds of the most
important immune-building compounds. By changing our diets and combining foods that contain powerful
immune-strengthening capabilities, we can prevent most common modern diseases.
