Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Nationally syndicated columnist Carper (Food: Your Medical Miracle, HarperCollins, 1994) proposes that aging is a disease process that is correctable, preventable, and reversible. This premise, which is supported by current, nationally acclaimed biomolecular research, is based on the free-radical theory of aging. After discussing the biological mystery of aging in terms of free radicals and antioxidants, Carper formulates an "attack plan" that emphasizes the importance of vitamins, minerals, and appropriate foods. Accurate facts regarding the major vitamins and minerals are stated, with leading researchers revealing the prescribed "diet" of supplements they take daily. The effective use of subheadings enables the reader to focus quickly on pertinent facts, vitamins, etc. References are listed according to subject matter. Carper provides a wealth of informative tips for the lay reader serious about slowing down the aging process.

From Booklist

Popular nutrition writer Carper offers a quick, readable guide that focuses on stopping (and even reversing) the effects of aging on our bodies. Research suggests that aging happens after cells have been bombarded with "free radicals" for so long that they cease to function. Free radicals come in many forms (fats, pollutants, and even oxygen are included), and in a perfect world, they would be neutralized by natural antioxidants (such as vitamins E and C and garlic). However, when we neglect to feed our bodies these antioxidants, the free radicals do more damage--and hence we age. Carper, therefore, argues for an antioxidant-rich diet supplemented by megadoses of vitamins, thereby keeping our cells healthy and major diseases such as cancer and heart disease at bay. The first half of the book discusses the most important "antiaging" vitamins, and Carper details the types and doses of supplements we should take. The second half of the book recommends specific foods to eat and beverages to drink. Filled with illuminating facts about the American diet ("More than half of Americans do not eat a single serving of fruit, vegetables or fruit juice on any given day" ), Carper also shares which vitamin supplements (and how much) researchers in the field take. However, dietary needs of growing children and pregnant women are covered only superficially. The book concludes with a list of medical and scientific writings that Carper referenced in researching this book.

Format: Paperback
The most important question this book answered for me, was why should someone who eats a sound diet take supplements. I was surprised to learn that, because of all the toxins and stress we are exposed to, a healthy person who doesn't take supplements still runs the risk of getting cancer, cataracts, and other degenerative diseases. The first part of the book deals with the supplements you need to take. The author covers the findings, the dosage and the form you should take. She also discusses 'how much is too much' for each supplement. Then she advices you which foods to avoid (too much iron can make you age, too!) and why. 12 supplements are covered, and three are essential( vitamins E, C and beta carotene), according to the author's research. 5 anti-aging foods are discussed, as well. Even if you are already a cancer patient or aging, the findings indicate that you can reverse the damage, with time. The book was very easy to understand, and fun to read, if you are into improving your health.

Format: Paperback
I have followed many of the advices of this book for about one and a half year and I have never felt so energic ! And people around me can notice it ! My copy of "Stop ageing now " has been translated into Norwegian. Most Norwegians ( including me ) unfortunatly are quite conservative to supplements and health foods . This book changed my mind . My immune system colappsed after I had my first child three years ago.( I was 28 then) I had lots of virus - infections non - stop for about one year. The doctors did not give any good advices and did not take this seriously. When I read this book I decided to go for the good advices and after a few months things started to change. I got lots of energy. My skin looks good, it never feels dry ( I dont need so much body lotion). I have only had two small virus - infections this year and that is a personal best. I do not need so much sleep as before and I seldom feel really tired and exhausted.The bags under my eyes are gone.I thought I would have to cope with them for the rest of my life. could have mentioned a lot more, but all I can say is : Don`t miss this opportunity to stay healthy. The advices in the book comes from experts . Do not stop visiting your doc.though , and have a healthy future ! PS. I`m still to young to know if I will stay young. I`ll write again in about 20 years and give a report.

I love this book so much. It's full of information the average person can easily put to use every day. It's written in a way that's straight-forward and easy to understand. You can just zip right through it without falling asleep. Let's face it, nobody is reading this book for the entertainment value. Jean Carper's style is right on the mark, just give the information is a simple way, never long-winded. There is something in here for everyone. Even a couch potato could read this book, basically stay a couch potato, but still get something out of this book is they follow some of the advice in here. There are no gimmicks in here, just practical information you can put to good use every day.

I would have never believed a vitamin/mineral book would be so interesting that I had trouble putting it down. Its all here in easy to understand language. The book is broken down into chapters for vitamins and minerals this author (as well as others) feels are the most important to take. Each chapter has supporting information so you can make informed decisions. I purchased one for my father for his birthday as well as a copy for myself. I checked this book out of a library then bought it for future reference.

This book is comprehensive and enjoyable to read. The author clearly articulates the basic cause of aging and identifies the steps to take to slow down the aging process. I recommend it to anyone that wants to stay as young as possible for as long as possible.

Format: Paperback
This reference book provides a compelling reason to take antioxidants although it reads as easily as a novel. It explains the theory of how antioxidants reduces the aging of cells and improves the body's ability to resist diseases. It cites medical research studies as a rationale for each statement and provides researcher's "testimony" of what they personally take as a result of their research

Format: Paperback
In STOP AGING NOW, Jean Carper uses the free radical theory to optimize health. Most of her book theorizes that taking supplements like vitamins E, B, and C, with minerals like zinc, calcium, magnesium, selenium, mixed with other potent antioxidants like CoQ10 will combine synergistically to reduce--but not stop--the aging process. Carper is quite right as far as she goes, but she wrote this book in 1995, and there have been considerable advances in life advancement that were either unknown or simply untested then. I cannot fault her for her lack of prescience in not knowing about other and far more potent supplements to postpone aging: DHEA, Acetyl L-Carnitine, pregnenolone, carnosine, resveratrol, lycopene, alpha lipoic acid, grapeseed extract, N-Acetyl-Cysteine, green tea extract, and curcumin to name a few. My primary objection to Carper is her passive methodolgy. If you take a dozen or so pills, you will benefit. What she leaves out is what must have been apparent even as she was writing STOP AGING NOW, namely the impact that a toxic-filled world has on human beings. Nowhere does she address the existence of toxins, and unless one acknowledges that toxins in the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, and the chemicals with which we surround ourselves, then the overall benefit of her pill methodology is greatly reduced. There are numerous texts that address this concern. One might look at Kevin Trudeau's NATURAL CURES for a sampler. Still, for a first text on anti-aging, STOP AGING NOW is a good place to begin even if the title is seen as mostly hype and blurb.
