Dr. Bruce Goldberg maintains that disease, not old age, kills people. He says that disease can be prevented, allowing people to live longer and healthier, by strengthening the immune system. His book, Look Younger, Live Longer, presents an array of natural tips for doing just that. The purpose of his book is to present "solid and clinical evidence of what you can and cannot do to look younger and live longer naturally." While his advice can help postpone death, his intent "is to show you how to maintain optimal health for the longest possible period of time." Dr. Goldberg doesn't offer magic elixirs or tricks to prevent or reverse the effects of aging. He says "your mind is the most powerful weapon in your arsenal against premature aging" and the key to youthfulness lies "in the choices we make many times each day" as to what we eat, drink, and think. Diseases of old age are a result of years of youthful abuse of our bodies, according to Dr. Goldberg, and he presents statistics and case studies to prove his assertions. His advice for living a long and healthy life includes eating less sugar and processed foods, quitting smoking, and using alcohol in moderation. He writes that "your single biggest physical defense against aging is exercise." He also cites studies showing that pets help their owners live longer and healthier. He says one way to keep your brain younger is take up a hobby. Look Younger, Live Longer is Dr. Goldberg's fifth book, and is based on his experience with more than 11,000 patients. Readers interested in natural ways to improve their lives and increase their longevity will find his advice informative and practical.
I was looking more for a book that would address me where I am. I am in my late 70's and have already gone through the healthy eating habits and just standard stuff to keep healthy. It didn't give me anything I haven't already covered and lived. So, maybe for someone younger and less well read, it will be of help. It was just a ho-hum book for me. Diet, attitude, physiology, etc. I wanted something new and exciting. Not there.
This book is simply written. It's message is to not stress, eat right, etc. Very simply written. Save your money.
With the way things are going nowadays, it seems sometimes that we won't make it throught to tomorrow. This book really gave me hope in whether or not I'll see tomorrow!
