Dr. David B. Agus — one of the nation's leading authorities on cancer treatment — addresses modern misconceptions about illness and wellness. Agus makes some surprising claims, asserting that a sedentary lifestyle can be worse than smoking, that vitamin supplements may do more harm than help and that poorly designed footwear factors into the development of heart disease.
