Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer

by Barbara Ehrenreich Author

As a society, we obsess over our health, our bodies, and death. From eating more kale to anti-aging products or preventative medical screenings, delving into spirituality and meditation, even cosmetic surgery - all things that offer illusions of control. Meanwhile, we've lost the ability to live well and accept our mortality. This book examines this philosophical challenge and pushes for a new understanding of our bodies and ourselves and tackles the question of how best to live the lives that remain to us.
