New Delhi: Physical, interpersonal and mental — all kinds of health need to be addressed in today’s growing and fast paced world. But health is becoming more and more difficult to navigate. While people try to adopt a healthy lifestyle, they are inundated each day with a range of products such as supplements, protein powders and super foods.

In Mukesh Bansal’s book, ‘Hacking health,’ the author simplifies all of that, and much more. He takes up the challenge of demystifying the science of health, streamlining research, and retracing the history of our interaction with our bodies. Bansal is the founder of India’s largest fashion retailer Myntra and co-founder of CureFit Healthcare Pvt Ltd.

Published by Penguin India, ‘Hacking Health’ will be released on 25 January on ThePrint’s Softcover.

‘Hacking Health’ pulls from ancient wisdom while also debunking unscientific beliefs to help one make informed decisions in pursuit of good health. It uses a blend of personal experience and cutting-edge science. Pseudoscience is unravelled, and one is able to plumb the depths of holistic health and gain insight into everything from sleep and immunity, weight management and mental health to ageing and lifespan.

“Having studied health for the last fifteen years, practiced varied regimens, and been engaged in the business of keeping people healthy through Cure.Fit over the last six years, my understanding of the field has dramatically improved. What I now understand is that it is both extremely simple and extraordinarily complicated,” Bansal writes in the introduction.

Throughout the book, Mukesh also honestly narrates the ups and downs of his own health journey, giving the reader a more personal feel. His passion for performance and productivity, undoubtedly shines through his words.

Chariman of Tata Sons N. Chandrasekaran writes the foreword and calls health “the most important subject of all”.

He writes: “Hacking Health is truly a timely book. We are emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic that affected the entire globe — a crisis that put immense pressure on our health care systems. However, we are also living in a remarkable time of science and progress — Technology is transforming every system of our life and health is no exception. Hacking Health digs into some of these exciting developments, particularly those happening in the field of ageing and longevity. I share Mukesh’s excitement at the prospect of witnessing the future of health unfold before our eyes, translating into a much longer health span for humanity.”

The book answers an important question, Can we utilise science to manipulate how the human body works in order to maximise our productivity, physical fitness, and happiness? The author adopts a 360-degree perspective to address this query and assists readers in realising the potential of their bodies.
