Empowering Anti-Aging Guide,
This review is from: You: Staying Young: The Owner's Manual for Extending Your Warranty (Hardcover)
We all care about our health. And I think most of us want to stay as youthful and healthy and happy as possible as long as possible. No one knows the body and how we can take control better than Dr. Michael Roizen and Dr. Mehmet Oz.
At the core of this book are the Major Agers--14 biological processes that control your rate of aging.
Knowing how our bodies work and why they age is a tremendous amount of knowledge. Most people don't have this knowledge. It's available. But they don't tap into it and use it. This is an anti-aging manual. It addresses medical and psychological ways to prevent, slow down, or even reverse the effects of aging. The idea is to help you live longer and lead a happier life. It includes scientific research and applications in genetic engineering, tissue engineering, and other medical advances. It shows some of the treatments and cures for Alzheimer's disease, for example. Some of the anti-aging treatments include nutrition, physical fitness, skin care, hormone replacements, vitamins, supplements, and herbs.
The original YOU book showed how the body works in general. Certainly good knowledge to have and more than most people understand. Now in YOU: Staying Young, Drs. Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz illuminate the mysterious mechanisms with a lively metaphor -- the modern city. What is the difference between a vibrant thriving city that ages gracefully from one that is worn down and looks shabby?
With this book, you'll know what happens to your body and what you can do to help it age with grace. Or, better yet, stop the aging process as we now know it. At least, to a large extent. You can control a lot of what happens to you. That's what gives this book its tremendous power.

Very thoughtful review. Have you read "Can We Live 150"?
