The book is written for men so that they can relate to it. It is not a 300-page book that you could summarize in two pages. This is a 900-page book you could summarize in 900 pages. Read on to learn more about genetic testing.
Susan: What are the most common issues men run into in their mid-life? What have you captured in the book?
Sure. So, one of the things that go south pretty early is circulation. It affects brain function, and we have excellent chapters in the book on cognition, improving heart function, and treating cancer.
Ethan bash is the chairman of the University of North Carolina, oncology department, and he wrote a fantastic chapter on cancer. We also have a cancer genetics chapter. So, there are incredible developments in cancer genetics.
This is the next wave of medicine, and there’s so much information.
Susan: Are you genetically precluded from getting different kinds of cancer? What genetic testing do you need to go through? How do you know, and what’s the epigenetic effect versus the genetic product? For example, how can you shortcut genetics and still not get cancer?
Exactly. Another critical aspect is nutrition, but the book doesn’t say you need to eat this or that. The book teaches you about nutrition. There are also chapters on what sugar is.
Susan: How does one get off sugar, which I was happy to see in a book for the 21st-century man? How to get unaddicted to sugar and porn? You have that in there: how insidious pornography is, why cocaine’s not your friend, the downsides to cannabis. I was very impressed with your coverage.
I wrote this book for men so that they can relate to it. It is not a 300-page book that you could summarize in two pages. This is a 900-page book you could summarize in 900 pages. This is the cliff notes version of everything, but I am also trying to infuse humor.
Susan: You have some great stories.
In the chapter on cocaine is a quote from Robin Williams. “Cocaine is God’s way of telling you that you have too much money.”
