Overview

Are you aging too fast? Edward Schneider, M.D., Dean of the Leonard Davis School of Gerontology and one of the field's leading gerontologists, refutes the myth that age equals loss— of our health and our physical and mental vigor. You can't live forever. (If people tell you otherwise, says Dr. Schneider, don't believe them!) But you can control your aging to significantly reduce your risk of disability and illness and to feel vital and productive throughout your lifespan. By adopting the simple lifestyle measures outlined here, every one of us can live longer by living well.

In AgeLess, Dr. Schneider has taken the latest and best research findings in each of the key areas known to affect your healthspan— nutrition, exercise, weight, sleep, social engagement, and hormones— and developed his easy-to-follow, science-based New Rules of Aging Less. Some of these New Rules may surprise you.

Worried about your weight? Read the science behind New Weight Rule #1— those few extra pounds may save your life. Or save money with this New Nutrition Rule: Toss out your multivitamins and most of your other supplements— they may be doing you more harm than good. Do you think a good night's sleep is a relic of lost youth? Read the Dean's AgeLess tips for getting your nightly seven to nine hours— it's essential to your healthspan.

And if you're determined to look as young as you feel, Dr. Schneider also rates cosmetic interventions— alpha hydroxy acid skin creams, laser peels, Botox injections, and more— to reveal which ones really work and those that don't.

To get started, take Dr. Schneider's Longevity Quotient Quizzes. These comprehensive questionnaires will help you rate your current lifestyle habits— you'll learn the areas in which you're doing okay and where you need to improve. An AgeLess future is within reach— start living yours today!
