The Longevity Prescription
By

Rating
"The Longevity Prescription" outlines eight essential facets of longevity: exercise, nutrition, mental vitality, sleep, relaxation, love and intimacy, community connections, and medical care. Based on proven discoveries, the strategies in each of these areas stretch the proceeds of the "three-decade dividend," while delaying or eliminating chronic illness. With step-by-step guidance for formulating an action plan and adopting new habits and strategies, "The Longevity Prescription" also guides readers through special challenges, such as diabetes and cancer. A baby boomer turns sixty every 7.6 seconds, but many of America's graying millions approach the later years of life with fear and trepidation. Emphasizing clear-cut research findings that balance physical health with emotional well-being, Butler and his colleagues offer a definitive path to whole-life happiness.
