When it comes to obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and depression, everything you believe is a lie.
Lights Out
With research gleaned from the National Institutes of Health, T.S. Wiley and Bent Formby deliver staggering findings: Americans really are sick from being tired. Diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and depression are rising in our population. We're literally dying for a good night's sleep.
Our lifestyle wasn't always this way. It began with the invention of the lightbulb.
When we don't get enough sleep in sync with seasonal light exposure, we fundamentally alter a balance of nature that has been programmed into our physiology since Day One. This delicate biological rhythm rules the hormones and neurotransmitters that determine appetite, fertility, and mental and physical health. When we rely on artificial light to extend our day until 11 PM, midnight, and beyond, we fool our bodies into living in a perpetual state of summer. Anticipating the scarce food supply and forced inactivity of winter, our bodies begin storing fat and slowing metabolism to sustain us through the months of hibernation and hunger that never arrive.
Our own survival instinct, honed over millennia, is now killing us.
Wiley and Formby also reveal:
  • That studies from our own government research prove the role of sleeplessness in diabetes, heart disease, cancer, infertility, mental illness, and premature aging;
  • Why the carbohydrate-rich diets recommended by many health professionals are not only ridiculously ineffective but deadly;
  • Why the lifesaving information that can turn things around is one of the best-kept secrets of our day.

Lights Out is one wake-up call none of us can afford to miss.

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The authors present some interesting and compelling ideas about the relationship of light-dark and seasonal cycles to our eating habits, mental stability, and cancer. This is the first book I've seen that brings in the relationship of sleep cycles and light-dark to our health, and which also asserts that depression is nature's way of getting rid of some of us. A lot of what they say makes a lot of sense. It made enough sense that I even evicted my LED alarm clock in favor of the old-fashioned kind that doesn't glow in the dark. There are also some of the clearest explanations of hormones, serotonin, GABA, etc. that I have ever read. Their conclusion that adult-onset diabetes is an end-stage insulin response to prevent freezing is mind-boggling!
I can only give the book 3 stars however because I can't check the references for myself to find out for myself if what they assert is upheld by the research. True, almost a third of the book is a listing of scientific papers, but there are no little numbers at the ends of sentences or paragraphs to link the papers with the text. The research is sorted only by chapter and listed alphabetically by author within, and most of the chapters have hundreds of references. Just because a paper is published in a respected journal doesn't mean it's good science or that it actually says what the authors report it says.
I also have to downgrade the book some for its hysterical "the sky is falling" tone. Perhaps it was done this way to get our attention, but I would have preferred a more even tone. The conclusions are alarming enough (if true) as is.

1.0 von 5 Sternen intellectual dishonesty 23. Februar 2000
Von kay lizzo
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
i have read the book as well as the reviews on amazon's site. i believe that some healthy skeptism should be applied when evaluating results of research. for instance, the assertion that material has been peer reviewed is not followed through with what the fellow researchers are saying. i would be very interested. there is not doubt that sleep is important but this is not exactly news. sleep was advocated by ben franklin. and i would put more stock into the research done at stanford university, for instance. i believe there is some intellectual dishonesty in the presentation on what is very interesting theory. bits and pieces are grabbed out of context from different sources to support the conclusions. not good science. also, contrary to the authors' alarmist claims, cancer has actually been on the decline in the united states. i understand the sentiments of those reviewers who were excited by the molecular biological explanations. molecular biology is a very exciting and dynamic field with much interesting research going on. i would be more comfortable with this book if the the information was presented more honestly (especially regarding differing theories).

1.0 von 5 Sternen schwachsinnig und chaotisch 1. Juni 2013
Von Heidrun
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch habe ich gekauft auf Empfehlung eines Personal Trainers.
Ich empfinde es als unwisschenschaftlich, unstrukturiert, chaotisch und bizarr mit merkwürdigen höchst fragwürdigen Quellengangaben auf die sich der Author bezieht.

2.0 von 5 Sternen interesting, but sensationalistic 1. August 2000
Von C. Brain
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This book contains some interesting ideas but I found it very difficult to read and appreciate any of it. It reads like an episode of Hard Copy- sensationalistic, apocalyptic, etc. It is way too clear that Wiley used to be an investigative reporter. Furthermore, they throw out many 'truths' that are completely unsupported with references. I got the impression that they are trying to enlighten us in almost a religious sense and that we are just supposed to take what they say on faith. Sure, there are many references in the back, but not one is connected to any text in the book. Also, the editing is horrendous. The ideas are fresh and interesting, but the execution is so bad that I can't recommend this book- it was a real chore to read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen I wish they'd had a better editor... 22. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Although I agree with other customer reviewers that this book has been 'dumbed down' for a mass-market audience and is poorly written, (overly colloquial, generalized in places, verging on conspiracy theory, a tad repetitive...) I have found the ideas it contains to be very helpful and interesting. The connections that the authors make between the wide range of research on diet, sleep and evolution are fascinating. The main ideas resonated with me, and I recommed it if you suffer or have suffered from any kind of systemic virus, fatigue, or depression. The information and supplement/dietary/sleep suggestions have been priceless and very beneficial for me -- I recommend giving this book a read. If you can look past the mediocre writing, you will find it valuable.

3.0 von 5 Sternen OK, with reservations 6. Juni 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I believe the basic premise of this book, that is, that man needs to respect and act in concert with his evolutionary legacy, even if it's inconvenient in our modern culture. Nothing is more common sense than this. We all need reasonable ways to live more in concert with that natural world which gave us what we have and made us the animals we are.
The authors of this book, however, digress into what appear to be paranoid diatribes against those who would question, censor or ridicule their work. These are gratuitous, and make me think that they have lost scientific perspective and hence their credibility. This is too bad, because there are good points here. The book is worthwhile if one can wade through the conspiracies and horror stories. I only hope for someone who can write a straight, mainstream, scientifically supported, populist work which will carry the same basic messages without all the fringe anecdotes and us-against-them mumbo-jumbo.
