The Latest from Carolina Book Beat

Rethinking Aging Growing Old and Living Well in an Overtreated Society by Nortin M. Hadler, M.D. (broadcast 1-16-2012)  Dr. Hadler uses his more than 35 years in the medical profession as an honored physician, investigator and educator to bring us an alternative view of aging in our society in the 21st century.  Swimming against the current of medicalizing every step of the aging process, he works to make his readers able to make informed medical decisions “unfettered by worrisome notions of health promotion and unnecessary or harmful forms of disease management.”  He does this with style, documentation and finally…poetry.  For anyone planning on living to a ripe old age this book may steer you clear of a lot of the whirlpools along the way.  For more information go to Dr. Nortin Hadler.
