This is reminiscent of Bad Science by Ben Goldacre, but written about medicine particularly rather than science in general, and from an American rather than a British perspective. The author is witty as well, but nobody is as funny as Ben. The book was quite long, but as I kept waking up last night, I finished it in installments!
Did you know you could still be killed by the Black Death ... in America? That the organic movement has been so hijacked by big business that you would be better buying local than buying organic? That Rambo would be completely deaf after firing all those guns? For these and miscellaneous other facts about health, then read this book.
Is it possible to read a book a day, every day? I've finished my year-long project now and I would say that for me, no, it isn't possible to read a whole book EVERY single day. Real life does get in the way, or the book is just too long to complete in the evening after work. However, it looks like it is possible to read an AVERAGE of one book a day for a year, because you can catch up on your reading on weekends and holidays. So in those terms, I kept on track - and I also kept my reading choices eclectic!
