About Book

Geoffrey Douglas was born in London in 1945 but lived most of his life in Africa. He studied medicine at Oriel College, Oxford, where he met and married Penny. They had three children. By 1971, Geoffrey and his young family were back in Africa where he worked as a doctor.

 

This book is written as a personal memoir of an extraordinary life, in which the author deals with serious life challenges including being shot, the death of his youngest son and cancer. Practising medicine in Africa as a UK trained physician proves to be endlessly challenging, but deeply rewarding. Douglas makes the first HIV diagnosis in Swaziland, the country that now has the highest HIV rate in the world.

 

In his retirement, he heads up a UK charity and comes face to face with the global nutrition crisis. He applies his scientific mind to the claims and counter claims of the dysfunctional food and supplements industries. This fascinating book will impart many useful life skills and explain in simple terms what is meant by good nutrition.
