Book review: It's actually impossible to avoid the death

For a couple of weeks ago, I had a serving of sushi, and took it in with Today's News lunch room. ”Are you going to eat SOCKERBOMB!” cried a fellow.

Maybe it's the sushi that will bring the life out of me, but it would certainly surprise me.

We are living in an era of greater hälsohysteri than ever before. All are dangerous, except perhaps for broccoli (George Bush the elder did not like it, but he was luckily still at the age of 94). We are surrounded by a wide range of assertive diets, all of which will lead to a better, healthier and longer life. Not for those who follow the diets seem so much happier, everyone seems to become angrier and angrier because of their small dietsegment doesn't get enough respect.

not to mention the exercise, which is the closest to have reached the status of a religion.

In this contemporary world, one should read Barbara Ehrenreich's, a wiry american, a journalist, who has been in the habit of, to reveal the samtidsmyter. In her book, ”the most of it – the way it all went to hell with positive thinking” (2010), assumed from that of her own breast cancer when she was rådd to think in a positive manner, as a normal part of the treatment.

in cell biology, examined immediately on a scientific basis. It was, to think in a positive manner? Not at all. On the contrary, the far too beneficial to ignore the warning signs, such as, for example finansanalytikerna in the united states did prior to the financial crisis of 2008.

In a way, ”To cheat the aging process” - a continuation of ”Like it”, and now goes by Ehrenreich, in contact with all of that in a day, is claimed to prolong and improve their lives.

most of The stuff is just rubbish, " she says. We offers a variety of health check in order to find the faults ”of the time, the medical industry has been able to compete more than ever in the past. However, we will be the healthier for it?

more Often than not, and x-ray examinations may lead to an increased risk of disease. We are relying too much on authority figures, " notes Barbara Ehrenreich, who herself refuses a mammogram now, she does not believe she is in the risk zone, and, by the way, she's old enough to die for it.

However, you need to have a lot of knowledge, and the confidence to question the doctor, thinks I, at least, in my own mind.

How important is diet and exercise? To an extent, but probably not as much as we would like to believe. Supplements are at best harmless, at worst, harmful. A certain amount of exercise is good, but exercising too much increases the risk of injuries, and is taking a disproportionate amount of the time. Do we want to devote our remaining time to be devoted to like the training and the självspäkning?

Even though we are doing everything we can to keep ourselves young and healthy, all of the time, the old and the sick, and in the end we will die. The best. With a certain amount of schadenfreude notes, Barbara Ehrenreich, Steve Jobs, once commented to a friend spread the butter on the bread and butter! This is an abomination. Well, that, and which of them are still alive today. Not Steve Jobs.

Barbara Ehrenreich is correct in part, but the following anecdote about Steve Jobs, " she says snusförnuftigt to steve Jobs for a lot of the fruit, which can be harmful to the body. I feel the whole of her tesbygge, which is a staggering paradox: that is, we should stick to the science, but still believe in a story that doesn't really say much more than that, Steve Jobs was rude? Maybe it was the fruit that took the life of Steve Jobs, but I have put enough money in his genes. Or a chance.

even so, is the ”Fight against aging” is a fascinating book that swings gleefully between the cellular and social history, discuss the cells ' innate desire (which is not necessarily in keeping human beings healthy), and the human need for control has shifted from the samhällssträvan to the body. Sometimes it is by Barbara Ehrenreich, knowledgeable, and trustworthy, and sometimes it lands her in a, shall we say, a little bit of the original findings, that is, that the dödsskräck are best treated with the hallucinogenic drug.

However, the very best of Barbara Ehrenreich is that I think the reader's question at the end of the question, even to himself.

to Learn more about Barbara Ehrenreich, and ”the positivitetshetsen”.
