From the Publisher
Wondering if science could explain how he survived his 40-year
avalanche of drugs and alcohol, Ozzy Osbourne became one of a
handful of people in the world to have his entire DNA mapped in
2010. It was a highly complex, $65,000 process, but the results
were conclusive: Ozzy is a genetic anomaly. The "Full Ozzy Genome"
contained variants that scientists had never before encountered and
the findings were presented at the prestigious TEDMED Conference in
San Diego-making headlines around the world. The procedure was in
part sponsored byThe Sunday Timesof London, which had
already caused an international fururoe by appointing Ozzy Osbourne
its star health advice columnist. The newpaper argued that Ozzy''s
mutliple near-death experiences, 40-year history of drug abuse, and
extreme hypocondria qualified him more than any other for the job.
The column was an overnight hit, being quickly picked up
byRolling Stoneto give it a global audience of millions.
In TRUST ME, I''M DR. OZZY, Ozzy answers reader''s questions with

OZZY will include some of the best material from his published
columns, answers to celebrities'' medical questions, charts,
