Dr. Wallach hosts the extremely popular radio call in show “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” on KSCO in Santa Cruz where he gives listeners crucial information about how proper vitamin and mineral supplementation can help with most ailments.
The Title “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie” was created by Dr. Joel Wallach after years of research on the subject of health and longevity. Dr. Wallach discovered that the life span of the average doctor in America is several years shorter than that of the average couch potato. Dr. Wallach began collecting obituaries of doctors only to find that many were dying of simple nutritional deficiencies. If doctors really knew the truth about health and longevity they should be living longer than anyone else, not dying sooner. This premature death pattern proves that doctors are missing some key elements when it comes to understanding what it takes to live a longer healthier life, hence was born the title… “Dead Doctors Don’t Lie”.
Dr. Wallach recorded a ground-breaking lecture with the same title that has become the most popular health lecture in history with approximately 46 MILLION copies sold worldwide. In fact at least 40 other nutritional companies have used this same tape to market their products.
