Take Control of Your Health
America is battling an epidemic of illness and poor health. Let’s face the facts: cancer and heart disease are at all-time highs. Two out of three Americans are overweight, while one out of three is obese. The number of diabetic and pre-diabetic individuals is also rising.
Health care in the Unites States is among the world’s most expensive, yet almost 100,000 patients die each year due to medical errors and malpractice. Some 1.5 million patients suffer from medication and prescription mistakes. Big pharmaceutical companies earn billions of dollars, but over 100,000 people still die annually from adverse drug effects.
Unless something is done immediately, the next generation may experience a shorter lifespan than their forbearers. Natural health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola is determined to help stop this trend by empowering you to take control of your health.
Dr. Joseph Mercola, D.O.
Dr. Joseph Mercola is an osteopathic physician (DO) based in Chicago, Illinois. His primary passion is transforming the conventional medical paradigm in the United States. He believes that the American health care system is flawed and has been corrupted by the pharmaceutical industry, which is why people are now receiving poor quality healthcare and are still quite far from real solutions to their health woes.
In 1997, he established his own natural health website, Mercola.com, which is dedicated to providing free health and wellness articles, natural products, as well as other resources to people worldwide, inspiring them to take control of their health. Dr. Mercola has authored three New York Times bestsellers, The No-Grain Diet, The Great Bird Flu Hoax, and Effortless Healing. He has been a keynote speaker at many health-related conferences and assemblies and has been featured in various media resources, such as TIME magazine, LA Times, ABC News, CNN, Today Show, Dr. Oz, and CBS’s Washington Unplugged.
In 2009, he was named the “Ultimate Wellness Game Changer” by the Huffington Post, an honor bestowed upon “100 innovators, visionaries, and leaders in 10 categories who are harnessing the power of new media to reshape their fields and change the world.”
