I am overwhelmed by the results shared with me from the Nautilus and the Independent Publisher’s Awards in the last two weeks. They have honored my latest book, Your Health Is At Risk: How To Navigate Information Chaos To Prevent Lifestyle Diseases, with a first-place prize in their Health categories. I want to thank my publishing team which has worked alongside me for almost a decade, creating professionally-made books and helping me to share my message. We are currently working on our 6th project together, a cookbook and exercise guide for Type 2’s! I can’t wait to share it with you. In the meantime please pick up your copy of Your Health Is At Risk if you have not already. This book discusses heart disease and cancer as well as Type 2. Please share it with someone who could use the information. Thanks – John
Nautilus continues to grow in both the number and global diversity of submissions we receive. This year we reviewed and shared in the experience of a record number of amazing books from authors around the world.
The IPPY Awards reward those who exhibit the courage, innovation, and creativity to bring about change in the world of publishing. Independent spirit and expertise comes from publishers of all sizes and budgets and books are judged with that in mind.
In 2020, there were over 122 million people in the U.S. diagnosed with elevated blood glucose, 34 million with the diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes, and 88 million diagnosed with prediabetes, yet their hope for healthy living is thwarted by medical dogma, disinformation, misinformation, and missing information.
Disinformation, Misinformation, and Missing Information, which is abbreviated “DMMI”, fuels growing health illiteracy and unhealthy lifestyle choices. This drives not only increases in Type 2 diabetes but also cancer, cardiovascular diseases, COVID-19, and other illnesses considered lifestyle diseases.
As described in my 5th book, Your Health Is at Risk, a literate person in today’s world is aware that the traditional media and social media are swarming with intentional disinformation about many topics, from politics to finances, to health advice and diet plans. Literacy, critical thinking, and a tolerance for reading scientific material are absolutely necessary to detect such disinformation.
