I particularly loved Dr. Bowden's Anti-Aging Action Plan on how to boost your immune system because most of the suggestions simply make for a better life all around:
Learn to relax
Learn to laugh at yourself
Learn to listen
My Opinion In A Nutshell: The book has over 264 pages of information about living a long, healthy life. The beautiful, colorful pictures accompany easy to read, easy to follow advice on how to slow the aging process by fighting "The Four Housemen of Aging" - Free Radicals or Oxidation, Inflammation, Glycation and Stress. As a 43 year old women with grandparents in their 90's this book is very interesting to me. My mom died before 35 and my dad has always had medical issues but I can look at how my grandparents lived and see that Dr. Jonny Bowden's book is right on target. My grandfather had a triple bypass over 20 years ago but is still going and that has to do with the way he lived.

The quote that sticks with me the most today is: For every 1 pound of weight lost, there is a 4-pound reduction in the load exerted on the knee for each step taken during daily activities. I have terrible knees and will eventually need knee replacement surgery. This is very motivational for me to drop at least 10 pounds over the next year.
