Description:

Introducing a new way of thinking about health: public health experts Tom Farley and Deborah A. Cohen show us that the antidote to our ever-growing rates of obesity and chronic diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes, lies not in our medical care system or in more health education but rather in how our environment affects our behavior. "Prescription for a Healthy Nation is an excellent book that successfully introduces a new approach to todays epidemics." --Brian C. Reed, JAMA: Journal of the American Medical Association "Prescription for a Healthy Nation is the best book about public health Ive read in years . . . Their important message: it is not enough just to take personal responsibility for our own actions--we also have to work for changes in society that make it easier for everyone to stay healthy." --Marion Nestle, author of Food Politics: How the Food Industry Influences Nutrition and Health "If we can create an environment that makes us sick, Farley and Cohen contend, we can create an environment more conducive to good health. Its just more challenging to do so." --Donna Chavez, Booklist Tom Farley is chair of the Community Health Sciences Department at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. He lives in New Orleans. Deborah A. Cohen, a senior natural scientist at the RAND Corporation, lives in Los Angeles.
