Forget failing eyesight and fragile bones-forget everything you thought you knew about aging; it's out of line with what the leading researchers know. And David Lipschitz-PBS's beloved Dr. Dave-is here to shatter some of the biggest myths, and to outline a new way to understand and manage the aging process. The big news? There are things you can do right now to dramatically reduce or eliminate the most common afflictions of old age. But they're not what you think!
For example, don't lose that excess weight. The fact is, beyond your 50s dieting is a bad idea; a little extra weight will help you live longer and feel better. And consider medical tests. The 10 most common tests requested by doctors do utterly nothing for you. Here, Dr. Dave tells you why you should insist on 10 different tests instead, explaining the rationale for each in detail.
Dr. Dave also examines the ailments commonly associated with aging-memory loss, vision impairment, Alzheimer's disease, etc.-and gives an in-depth review of their causes, risk factors, and treatments. He includes valuable meal plans for total nutritional health-the number one factor that will keep you active beyond your 80s.
