What the statistics do not show is the pain, misery, and despair that these conditions create―not only for the individual but also for family and friends.
As an African-American doctor, Dr. Richard Walker has studied these conditions among his patients for many years. Now, presented for the first time in his book Black Health Matters, Dr. Walker believes that research has found a number of commonsense ways to prevent, reduce, and possibly eliminate these killers, turning the tide of African-American health.
Dr. Walker joins us today to discuss his book, which explains how this crucial factor can be added to a daily routine along with components such as nutritional supplements, diet, exercise, and even dental care. He focuses on each major illness affecting the black community and explores what it is, what its symptoms are, and how the reader can avoid or treat the problem using the latest treatments available.
