Health Defence

The best-selling book Health Defence is written by Dr Paul Clayton, former president of the Forum on Food and Health at the Royal Society of Medicine.

Health Defencein its 2nd edition, draws lessons from the world’s healthiest diets to define the ideal protective diet and supplement. It spells out which foods can significantly reduce your risk of diabetes, stroke, heart disease and Alzheimer’s, and shows why so few Japanese women get breast cancer and so few Japanese men get prostate cancer. It is probably the definitive book on how optimum nutrition can cut the risk of degenerative disease – and how you can incorporate the most protective nutrients from the world’s healthiest diets into your own everyday diet.

"Dr Clayton has developed an innovative solution for health and wellbeing."
Professor David Richardson, University of Newcastle

"The concept of optimum nutrition for health is extremely important."
Dr John Marks, University of Cambridge
