The Great American Health Hoax
Described as “one of the few scientists who has achieved a breakthrough understanding of health and disease,” Raymond Francis draws deeply from his years of personal experience and professional training. A chemist and a graduate of MIT, Raymond exposes the truth about why the conventional approaches to health and disease aren’t working. In The Health Hoax, Francis blends wisdom from his previous books with new information and research, then he pulls out all the stops and creates a simple roadmap to health so that you can get well, stay well and never be sick again. Francis believes that, through education, we can put an end to the epidemic of chronic disease while providing a solution to the biggest social and economic problem of this century―the costs of global aging.
In The Health Hoax, Francis exposes the truth about how to stay healthy and introduces us to a way of life that can become a “highway to health”, while he quite effectively demonstrates that we really don’t have to be sick. Then, he reminds us that not only is there absolutely no fun in being sick, but we are going broke trying to pay the cost. Francis realizes that the only solution for individuals and society as a whole is to maintain health. But health is a solution that we must choose, and once we make that choice, we must learn how to achieve it.
Fortunately, learning how to be healthy has never been easier―The Health Hoax makes it simple. Because the human organism is a magnificent self-regulating, self-repairing system, it is capable of being completely functional and in excellent health for well over 100 years of vital, productive life. We are the sum of everything that goes into our system – it is our job to support it. When we make the choice to properly care for ourselves, our bodies will reward us with the gift of good health and long life. All we need is a tool to help us master the elements of health that are the most important. This book is that tool. It will empower you to choose health and never be sick again!

The Great American Health Hoax is passionate, but it’s also well-researched and well-reasoned. In addition to an extensive bibliography, there are many references to scientific articles made in the text. Raymond Francis also does an especially good job at explaining scientific concepts in clear and simple terms.I’m here to tell you that for me, Raymond’s references been not only possible but mandatory.
I am one of thousands whose health was ruined by western medicine. The approach described in Raymond Francis’ books has been indispensable to me in bringing myself back from almost total disability to relatively good health.More than thirty years ago I was treated for a urinary tract infection by repeated doses of antibiotics over the course of almost an entire year. Although the antibiotics ruined my health for the next twenty years by destroying the bacteria in my intestines (which have never been normal since), they never cured my urinary tract infection.
This was eventually brought under control by acupuncture, herbs and cranberry juice.People who’ve had experiences like mine understand that conventional medicine is, indeed, a dangerous “hoax.” Our medical system is not, as many would like to believe, composed of honest scientists looking for the best way to prevent and cure disease. Rather, it is governed by pharmaceutical companies whose primary interest lies in their own profit, and who regularly distort science to promote their products, even corrupting information published in medical journals.

Awesome book that reveals the weakness of our modern medicine as currently practiced.
Molly Meyers, New York City, NY
The Great American Health Hoax was easy to read and understand. Unlike other books I have read about health, everything in this book was crystal clear and real easy to put into practice. The maintenance list in this book shows you how to maintain your body and achieve good health. I am recommending it to all of my family and friends.
Never Fear Cancer Again
Most cancer research dollars have been wasted by asking the wrong questions, looking in the wrong places, and recycling the same failed approaches while expecting different results. Conventional cancer treatments damage health, cause new cancers, lower the quality of life, and decrease the chances of survival. In fact, most people who die from cancer are not dying from cancer, but from their treatments! That’s the bad news. Here’s the good news: We can end the cancer epidemic. In Never Fear Cancer Again, readers will gain a revolutionary new understanding of health and disease and will come to understand that cancer is a biological process that can be turned on and off, not something that can be surgically removed or destroyed with radiation or toxic chemicals. So whether cancer has already been diagnosed or if prevention is the concern, it is possible to turn off the wayward production of these malfunctioning cells once and for all by reading this book and implementing its strategies. The key to any disease has one simple cause: malfunctioning cells that are created by either deficiency or toxicity. By switching off the malfunctioning cells, you switch off the cancer. Never Fear Cancer Again guides readers along six pathways that cause deficiency or toxicity at the cellular level: nutritional path, genetic path, medical path, toxin path, physical path, and the psychological path. By making key lifestyle changes, people truly have the power to take control of cancer and transform their health. This radically different, yet holistic approach restored author Raymond Francis back to health just as it has helped thousands of others, many of whom were told they had no other options or that their cancer was incurable. Take back your health with this book and never fear cancer again.

Raymond Francis is a brilliant and advanced thinker and practitioner in the health field. Personally, as a practitioner of Integrative and Preventive Medicine for forty years, I can appreciate when complicated issues are made simple. Raymond Francis does that in his new book. Like Raymond, I am a believer that nearly all disease begins in the cells, and healthy humans are maintained by good nourishment while avoiding toxicity. This is also the case for preventing cancer, and prevention is the only sensible way to look at the scary issue of this potentially deadly disease. Never Fear Cancer Again provides the concepts and solutions to keep this life-threatening disease away. Staying healthy is our best defense.
Frank D. Wiewel
Raymond Francis’s bold explanation for the reasons why we get cancer and how we can eliminate it awakens even the most skeptical thinker. In Never Fear Cancer Again, Francis’s clear and easy to understand style challenges us with shocking data from mainstream-medical research. He couples this with unusual common sense that cuts through the confusion and offers hope that through eating a healthy diet, living a healthy lifestyle, and eliminating environmental toxins, cancer can be both prevented and cured. This landmark book is a must read for every medical doctor and every person who has or knows someone who has cancer. This is an outstanding contribution!
Edgar Mitchell, Ph.D., Sc.D.
Raymond Francis is a visionary who sends a simple message that all can understand―you can do more for yourself than any doctor. Francis writes, ‘Take your foot off the accelerator, apply the brake, turn the ignition switch off and your car stops. In much the same way, you can stop cancer.’ Then he goes on to describe how you yourself can prevent and treat cancer―a very important work.

Wise and provocative words from a learned and gifted expert on health and well-being.
Never Be Sick Again
One day Raymond Francis, a chemist and a graduate of MIT, found himself in a hospital, battling for his life. The diagnosis: acute chemical hepatitis, chronic fatigue, multiple chemical sensitivities, and several autoimmune syndromes, causing him to suffer fatigue, dizziness, impaired memory, heart palpitations, diarrhea, numbness, seizures and numerous other ailments. Knowing death was imminent unless he took action, Francis decided to research solutions for his disease himself. His findings and eventual recovery led him to conclude that almost all disease can be both prevented and reversed. In Never Be Sick Again, Francis presents a seminal work based on these findings – a revolutionary theory of health and disease: there is only one disease (malfunctioning cells), only two causes of disease (deficiency and toxicity), and six pathways to health and disease (nutrition, toxins, psychological, physical, genetic, and medical). This remarkable book answers the questions: What is health? What is disease? Why do people get sick? How can disease be prevented? How can it be reversed? It will teach readers, in one easy lesson, an entirely new way to look at health and disease – an approach that is easy to understand, yet so powerful that they may, indeed, never have to be sick again. Providing a basic understanding of health and disease, this book takes the mystery out of disease. It provides readers, no matter what their present physical condition, a holistic approach to living that will empower them to get well – and stay well.

Raymond Francis will give you the information you require—and if you combine it with inspiration, self-esteem and self-love, you will accomplish wonders. Take your health into your own hands—choose life and Never Be Sick Again!
Russ Jaffe, M.D., fellow, Health Studies Collegium fellow, National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry
The world is a better place for Raymond Francis and his work. He brings hope and inspiration to those who seek the path out of illness to sustained health and well-being. For the many health mysteries caused by nutritional deficits, overload of toxins and neuro-immuno-hormonal dysfunctions, this book is a necessary and joyful treasure.
Hyla Cass, M.D., author of Natural Highs and St. John's Wort: Nature's Blues Buster
You must read this inspiring story and learn how one man overcame his own illness to become a fine educator in the science of health maintenance. With our current medical system failing miserably to treat or prevent a wide variety of illnesses, this book is a timely contribution.
Al Lemerande Jr., M.D., director of medical programs, Advanced Physicians Medical Group author of Dynamic Health Through Nutrition
Never Be Sick Again presents a revolutionary new understanding of health and disease. Raymond Francis empowers readers and puts them back in charge of their health. This important book offers keen insights into the shifts in thinking about health; it is a prelude to what medicine in the future must become.
Never Feel Old Again
Ray Francis’ first book, Never Be Sick Again, helped thousands of people put their “incurable” diseases into remission and enabled thousands more to shed excess weight, improve their cholesterol profiles, and achieve peak immunity from disease. Now Francis brings his revolutionary approach to anyone who wants to enjoy robust health and wellness and reverse accelerated aging. As Francis explains, just like an automobile, the body ages as a result of accumulated repair deficits, or a lack of maintenance. Fortunately, the human body is a self-repairing system, and in this latest book, Francis shows readers how to stay in good repair and keep the aging process at bay. His revolutionary approach counters the one-size-fits-all approach of most conventional anti-aging treatments on the market by targeting specific imbalances that manifest through “aging” symptoms. Botox injections, plastic surgery, and even hormone-replacement therapies don’t yield meaningful results because they fail to activate the body’s self-repair mechanisms; what’s more, sometimes these treatments compound the problem by introducing additional toxins into the body. Never Feel Old Again provides a fundamental understanding of why we experience accelerated aging and teaches readers to look and feel their best and be healthy at any age.
Paul Rose, San Francisco, CA
Yet another grand slam. This guy speaks ” in my language”. Straight, to the point, easy to read. It has just the right amount of science to support the information without crossing my eyes in confusion. It’s my favorite book on the subject of health and a must read.
Steven Caldwell, Margate, FL
This is one of the great ones. It’s even better than Never Be Sick Again, which I thought was a health masterpiece. Like the first book, he may be a bit over the top for some folks with his take on environmental toxins. After all, we can’t live in a plastic bubble. But he knows whereof he speaks, so it behooves us to listen to him. We’ve heard a lot of this before. Mr. Francis just does it so much better than many others. Surprisingly, he’s not a vegan. He does eat some meat, though he advocates consuming smaller portions of free-range, no-antibiotic animal products. Also, he does not advocate processed foods of any kind. He has here left out his personal story, which he gave in the first book. I suppose he didn’t feel it bore repetition, though I have to say it is one hell of a story. He literally went through hell when he had his own health crisis. And, like others, he had to figure out what was going on with himself and what to do about it. It’s one of the greatest healing stories I’ve ever read.
Jolett Johnson, San Diego, CA
As with his other books, Raymond Francis simplifies how to keep or regain health if you’ve lost it. Where modern medicine’s definition of disease is complicated and confusing, Mr. Francis takes this to a level that everyone can understand and benefit from. His personal story as well is inspiring and should give anyone that’s suffering from an ailment that there’s hope for healing if you have the right information and then apply it.
Robert Simmons, Jacksonville, FL
Realistic and straightforward way to manage health and overcome health problems. I am sure a lot of people will benefit from this book
Never Be Fat Again
Raymond Francis is the scientist people turn to when diets don’t work. His groundbreaking approach treats excess weight for what it really is–a disease caused by malfunctioning cells. As Francis explains, many of the foods we eat every day, especially the ‘health’ and ‘diet’ ones we dutifully buy to lose weight, have the opposite effect . Full of hidden toxins and lacking nutrients, they actually poison your cells and alter your weight-control genes, causing your body to put on the pounds. Like he’s done for thousands of other people, Raymond Francis can help you turn this fat cycle around and reclaim your waistline–and your health. His simple yet scientifically supported plan will have you looking and feeling better than you have in years– in just six weeks. You’ll discover: Which low-fat and no-fat products actually make you fatter
How one missing nutrient can signal your body to store fat
Which food additives are most toxic–and how to spot them on a label
The ‘Big 4’ worst foods to eat–with delicious and nutritious alternatives
How to sneak more fiber- and nutrient-rich foods into your day
Plus, delicious recipes for meals and snacks and week-by-week to-do lists to keep you on track
Your body already knows how to regulate its weight–you just need to give it a fighting chance. Now you can–for life.
Steven A. Peterson, San Francisco, CA
When I started reading this book, I could not put it down. It made me think before I buy any groceries. I read everything on the label, and to me if it has words I can’t even pronouce, I don’t buy it. The more natural ingredients and the less chemicals. This book is a must to read.
Steven Caldwell, Margate, FL
This book is brilliant! It is mostly about regaining your health rather than losing weight, which is what the author actually claims will happen. Obesity is considered a disease which would not normally happen to a healthy person. I can see the truth in this. The book is written in a wonderfully easy way to understand. I have to say that at some point all the information can become overwhelming and if you don’t stop reading for a while the information becomes a big mess in your head. So it is best to take it slowly and digest the information thouroughly. The author tells the story about a woman who read his book and was very mad to find out about all the bad things that she ate because she wasn’t really ready to change her eating habits. If you are not sure if you want to change your eating habits, then it is better not to read it. If you do want to start living healthier and commit to this change then this book can help you. I really get a sense from this book that is was written for the best of the readers and without any great personal benefits to the author. I have been looking for a long time to find the best healthy way of eating, and this book covers it all great. I have started following the book’s advice since New Year and have lost 15lbs since then without starving and actually feeling fuller and more satisfied after meals. This has been in the range of 1lb a day almost. I haven’t started excersising yet so this weight loss is all due to the change in my eating habits. I did eat healthy before, always cooked meals at home, no junk food in fast food places, but I had a sweet tooth which gave me trouble. Sugar was one of the big fours to eliminate from your diet. I cannot recommend this book enough to anyone who wants to become healthier and slimmer.

The book is amazing! If you only read one book in your life this should be it.
