These are just a few of the shocking facts presented by Dr. Robert Mendelsohn in Confessions of a Medical Heretic. This new release of the critically acclaimed bestseller gives readers the information needed to help make their own medical decisions. Dr. Mendelsohn, world-famous physician and patient advocate, was a pioneer in the movement toward truth in the medical profession.

At a time when Americans are more concerned than ever with total health and how to achieve it, this is a book you can't afford to ignore.
