image There was a time, not long ago, when your only source for alternative, natural treatments for the illnesses suffered by yourself and your loved ones was poorly informed doctors or "standard" references that ignored alternative therapies. Now, with the Life Extension Foundation's new "Disease Prevention and Treatment Protocols," the latest in alternative treatments, all scientifically backed, are available to you in book form.

The Life Extension Foundation has accumulated important data from more than 50 years of research about scientific methods to prevent and treat the diseases of aging. In the Foundation's quest to gain control over aging, we uncover treatments to fight medical disorders that often are overlooked by physicians.

Over the past 14 months, the Foundation has been cataloging and updating its prevention and treatment regimens. Now, we are proud to offer for the first time a fully referenced directory of Disease Prevention and Treatment Protocols. This easy-to-use 946-page book enables the reader to quickly locate innovative solutions for more than 110 medical conditions not being effectively treated effectively by conventional physicians.

Disease Prevention and Treatment Protocols are based upon published scientific research. Conventional physicians often are unaware of critically important scientific research when treating serious diseases. The result is the needless suffering and death of millions of Americans every year.

One example of published scientific research that was overlooked by conventional medicine is penicillin. In 1928, Dr. Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin. His work was published the very next year in the British Journal of Experimental Pathology. Nevertheless, the medical profession didn't start treating patients with penicillin until 13 years later, and the general population did not gain access to this life-saving antibiotic until 1946.

Millions of people suffered and died prematurely from bacterial infections when a cure had already been discovered and published in a respected medical journal.

In 1940, William Kent, the father of Saul Kent, president of the Foundation, died from a heart problem caused by rheumatic fever. The elder Kent, who was in his late 30s at the time, could have survived and lived for decades if he had been treated with penicillin, which is effective for rheumatic fever.

His son, Saul, who was 10 months old at the time his father died, started the Life Extension Foundation 40 years later, so that others would be spared the fate of his father. It is difficult to imagine the agony of millions of relatives during those years who watched helplessly as their loved ones suffered and died from a host of diseases that penicillin could have cured.

If the Life Extension Foundation had been in existence in the 1930s, there would have been an aggressive attempt to duplicate Dr. Fleming's research and get penicillin to critically ill people such as Saul Kent's father.

The Foundation's Disease Prevention and Treatment Protocols is a book that is dedicated to eradicating the ignorance that is causing humans to suffer and die today from diseases that may already have effective therapies reported in the published scientific literature.

The protocols for "untreatable" diseases contained in this new book will eventually become part of standard medical practice. Almost every protocol is substantiated extensively by peer-reviewed studies from mainstream medical journals from around the world. Despite this scientific validation, these therapies and protocols are largely being ignored by conventional medicine and human beings are dying unnecessarily.

The first chapter deals with the drug acetaminophen (Tylenol). Few people and few doctors know the degree to which drugs that contain acetaminophen are toxic to the liver and kidney, and almost no one knows that acetaminophen increases the risk of kidney cancer two- to eight-fold. In this book, you'll learn how to prevent acetaminophen-induced toxicity, and even how to eliminate the need for many Food And Drug Administration-approved drugs altogether.

In summary, Disease Prevention and Treatment Protocols is unique on the market, offering in one place the most recent, scientifically sound alternative, natural therapies for illness and disease. It's a must-have book.
