Dr karan is the best doctor to explain medical problems and solutions in very simple understandable way. I just wish he gave us knowledge about lectins in wheat and other night shade vegetables.

This book of health hacks is surprisingly entertaining. It’s full of useful information that everyone with a human body should know. Thanks, NetGalley, for the ARC I received. This is my honest and voluntary review.
