Relax: A Guide to Everyday Health Decisions with More Facts and Less Worry
We invite you to read the current book club selection Relax.: A Guide to Everyday Health Decisions with More Facts and Less Worry by Timothy Caulfield.
Timothy Caulfield is a Professor of Health Law and Science Policy at the University of Alberta and a Canada Research Chair in Health Law and Policy. He is the host and co-producer of the documentary TV show, A User's Guide to Cheating Death (streaming on Netflix) and a bestselling author.
In Relax, health policy expert Timothy Caulfield takes us through a regular day and shows the underlying science behind our actions and habits. And he reveals that a lot of our decision-making is based on misinformation. Whether he's studying cell phone use, bike commuting, or raw-milk cheese consumption, Caulfield shows that many of the things we believe to be healthier, safer, or just better, simply aren't. With solid grounding in current and reliable scientific findings, the author points to a less stressful way forward--which means we can all afford to relax a lot more.

We honour the First Peoples who have lived here since time immemorial, and we give thanks for the land where RDP sits. This is where we will strive to honour and transform our relationships with one another.
