Description

A scientist reveals the groundbreaking evidence linking many major diseases, including cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease, to a common root cause - insulin resistance - and shares an easy, effective plan to reverse and prevent it.

We are sick. Around the world, we struggle with diseases that were once considered rare. Cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and diabetes affect millions each year; many people are also struggling with hypertension, weight gain, fatty liver, dementia, low testosterone, menstrual irregularities and infertility, and more. We treat the symptoms, not realizing that all of these diseases and disorders have something in common.

Each of them is caused or made worse by a condition known as insulin resistance. And you might have it. Odds are you do - more than half of all adults in the United States are insulin resistant, with most other countries either worse or not far behind.

In Why We Get Sick, internationally renowned scientist and pathophysiology Professor Benjamin Bikman explores why insulin resistance has become so prevalent and why it matters. Unless we recognize it and take steps to reverse the trend, major chronic diseases will be even more widespread. But reversing insulin resistance is possible, and Bikman offers an evidence-based plan to stop and prevent it, with helpful food lists, meal suggestions, easy exercise principles, and more. Full of surprising research and practical advice, Why We Get Sick will help you to take control of your health. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

One of the best books I have ever read!!!!

I have read many excellent books on health, but Ben Bikman’s book not only gets to the root cause - it provides an understanding of why. I absolutely loved it! Thank you for writing this in such a digestible format!

It’s all about insulin

This is an excellent overview of the impact insulin has on our health and why there are so many preventable diseases linked to what we eat.
There is some science but it is easy to understand and follow.
I recommend it highly.

Solid evidence based information

Ben Bickman shares a plethora of useful and helpful information. I understand so much more about insulin and insulin resistance today than I ever have.
The most helpful part for me was finding out about triglyceride and HDL ratios. I couldn’t understand how after following the Very low carb keto my triglycerides were so high.
I recommend this book to anyone that is not living their healthiest life.

Basically: limit carbs and processed food. That's

Basically: limit carbs and processed food. That's the whole book.
No need to buy it, the rest is just the author desperately trying to prove that he's right.

Ben Bikman is my new Dr. Jason Fung ❤️

I just listened to the book on audible, but now I will buy the hard copy too. Too much great info that I know I will want to keep this the paper version as a long term reference. I think I liked this better than The Obesity Code. As a Nurse Practitioner who runs a weight loss clinic in my office the scientific data is so powerful.

Must read for those concerned about insulin

Dr Dickman makes it very easy to understand how insulin resistance affects various aspects of heal in profound ways and more importantly a short series of steps we can undertake when it comes to lifestyle to avoid or reverse insulin resistance.

Most assertions are backed by citing good studies and cavets apply where there hasn't been a strong enough causal inference when it comes to insulin resistance and some disorder/disease.
