About the project
We worked with Harley on this book starting with converting his PDF manuscript back into a Word document and spent some time reformatting it before completing a proofread.
After further edits by the author, the book was ready for ebook conversion. Prior to conversion, we designed the cover of Harley's ebook. The ebook was then converted based on the Word document and we aggregated it to Kindle (first enrolling it in Kindle Select for a period of 90 days), Kobo, iBooks and Google Play Books.
About the book
In a nutshell, 'Retire Alive' explains the general causes of cancer, heart attack and stroke, as well as diabetes and obesity. It raises the question whether what you currently eat and drink is likely to increase or decrease these problems. Nutritional supplementation is discussed, highlighting the potential pitfalls and benefits. You will find out why people gain weight, and how they can ‘lose’ it.
Lack of exercise is often suggested as a cause of our woes, especially obesity. But is it that simple? And what is the best exercise to ‘bullet-proof’ your heart and keep the weight off?
You will also discover how various toxins, or poisons, compromise your immune system, thereby increasing your risk of illness. Finally, the roles played by the medical establishment, food manufacturers, the pharmaceutical industry and health ‘authorities’ are put under the microscope.
You will realize how they might influence your health—for better and worse.
