Top Customer Reviews

Four experts come to speak with Charlie Rose about the subject of 'Men's Health'. One is Joe Kita the editor of 'Men's Health Magazine', a second is John Rowe who is the Director of Mt. Sinai Hospital, a third is Peter Scardino an expert on Prostate Cancer, the fourth is Gail Sheehy, the 'passages' writer who has written a book on 'Men's Passages'. She opens by noting that for years no attention was given to the subject but that now it is being more and more focused on. Scardino speaks about the growth in the numbers of prostate cancer sufferers as people live longer ago- and the chance for this illness increases with age. Rowe speaks about his own book about 'successful aging' and makes the point that one element in this is understanding that the person cannot be at fifty what they are at thirty. All agree on the value of Exercise, but Rowe points out the significant finding that the key factor is doing some exercise, not intense exercising. He also points to the importance of 'resistance exercise' such as weight- lifting. All agree that the social factor is key, Those who maintain an active social participation have better chance of aging well. The rule of 'use it or lose it' is invoked for both physical and mental activity. Sheehy points out the importance of 'having a passion' something one is truly interested in. And this when many men lose interest in all things once they no longer have their work or their job. They discuss other elements. Rowe speaks favorably about certain food supplements, but cautions against 'hormone related drugs'.
This was an informative segment with Rose doing his usual fine job of getting something from every panel member, keeping the conservation going well, and maintaining the whole discussion as interesting.
