Too many people around the world are dying from health problems and diseases they could have easily prevented. Even worse, millions more are leading limited lives, unable to do what they love. For them, health, well-being or quality-of-life are no longer realities.

After decades of practice and years of research, cardiac surgeon Dr. Surender R. Neravetla—Director of Cardiac Surgery at Ohio's Springfield Regional Medical Center who has been recongized as one of America's top surgeons—vowed to do what he could to help improve people’s health. His series, Health Now Books, is designed to help all of us avoid the kinds of disease-related problems that compromise the health and limit the lives of millions of people around the world.

The first book of the heart surgeon’s series, Salt Kills, explores our dangerous love affair with salt. Dr. Neravetla's second book,Salt:Black America's Silent Killerexplores how and why salt is even deadlier for Black Americans.

You probably don’t think you can—or want to—live without salt. But salt is damaging your health than you can imagine. Most of us know that salt causes potentially deadly high blood pressure. But did you also know that osteoporosis, treatment-resistant asthma, obesity, stomach cancer and memory loss have also been linked to excess salt consumption?

Dr. Neravetla’s books explore how to improve your health once you’ve cut out salt. Topics addressed include:

  • What does eating right entail?

  • What is the single most important thing we are doing wrong with our food other than adding salt?

  • What are the only kind of carbs we should be consuming?

  • Is milk good food? Is drinking it the best way to fight osteoporosis?

  • Why has diabetes become increasingly common even among vegetarians?

  • What is the best way to get all the vitamins your body needs?

  • What does the disclaimer on the bottle of your favorite vitamin supplements really mean?

  • What are antioxidants?  How do they work?

  • How much protection from heart disease do cholesterol-lowering pills offer?

  • And finally what kind of exercise is most beneficial?
