Mayo Clinic on healthy aging : an easy and comprehensive guide to keeping your body young, your mind sharp and your spirit fulfilled / medical editors, Nathan K. LeBrasseur, Ph.D., Christina Chen, M.D.

Summary:

"Healthy aging isn't simply a roll of the dice. How people age is a choice. Healthy aging isn't simply a roll of the dice. How people age is a choice. Researchers are finding that genes play a smaller role in overall health than most individuals realize. More often, the life people lead in their later years is a culmination of personal attitudes, decisions made, and actions taken beginning in young adulthood. Readers also will find practical tips to keep their minds, bodies, and spirits in top shape. Think of this book as an instruction manual that provides the tools needed to live life to its maximum— ensuring that the later years are some of the best years. The advice comes from a wide range of Mayo Clinic specialists, including staff of Mayo Clinic's Kogod Center on Aging. Discoveries being made by scientists at the Kogod Center suggest that aging may be a modifiable risk factor— a process that can be controlled. The Center's efforts are focused on the goal of increasing human 'health span'— the number of years individuals spend living independently and remaining free of age-related diseases and disabilities." -- Description provided by publisher.
