Beyond Aspirin: Nature's Answer to Arthritis, Cancer and Alzheimer's Disease
By Paul Schulick and Thomas M. Newmark
The 20th Century has been called the "Aspirin Century." Now, as we enter the next millennium, we move "Beyond Aspirin" to an exciting new world of safe and natural means to control the deadly inflammation that lies at the root of many tragic diseases of our times, including arthritis, Alzheimer's Disease and certain forms of cancer. As this book will explain, the new pharmaceutical anti-inflammatories (sometimes known as "super-aspirins") work by selectively inhibiting the inflammation-producing enzyme known as "COX-2." Yet, the authors question the long-term safety of these new drugs, the scope of their inhibitory powers, and the nature of their side effects. For these reasons, they support a proven, time honored, herbal program to inhibit COX-2 inflammation.
