RealAge: Are You as Young as You Can Be?

RealAge: Are You as Young as You Can Be? Lowest new price: $0.99
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $25.95
Author: Michael F. Roizen M.D.

What is aging? Aging is not a mysterious metaphysical phenomenon. Aging happens in the particulars. Your arteries become clogged. Your arthritis flares up. Age is not just a chronological measurement; it's the rate at which the primary internal guardians of health--your cardiovascular and immune systems--decline.

While your chronological age is fixed, your biological age may be years older--or younger--depending on a combination of factors. RealAge offers a revolutionary, systematic program that calculates the aging effect of more than 100 different health behaviors--ranging from diet and medication to stress control and chronic smoking--and enables you to assess your own biological age. Most important, it shows you how to design a specific path to improving or reversing your own aging trajectory.

Developed by Dr. Michael F. Roizen, chair of anesthesia and critical care at the University of Chicago and preventive gerontologist, along with four other scientists, the RealAge program is based on cutting-edge scientific research. Dr. Roizen and his team have pored over 25,000 medical studies, evaluating what they tell us about aging and what they tell us about the prevention of aging. In RealAge, they present the complete results of their analysis for the first time.

Each chapter covers a broad health topic--for example, how the right vitamins and supplements, exercise, or diet can be used to control how your genes affect you--and calculates the RealAge advantage you will gain by adopting a specific behavior. Charts, fact sheets, and tests give you specific choices to make and describe benefits to be gained so you can measure your success.

Suggested behavior changes are rated in order of difficulty so you can decide whether the result is worth the effort.

Ultimately, this program is about maintaining your health. The better condition you are in, the better prepared you will be to fight the factors that age you. RealAge demonstrates that you can have more control over the aging process. It makes science simple and its promise is irresistible: You may live as young at seventy as you did at forty-four.

Remeber your high school reunion?

Even though everyone was the same chronological age, people no longer looked the same. Some wore the years well, staying young and exuberant despite the passage of time, whereas others looked as if they had aged ten years more than everyone else--and probably had.

Did you know that:

  • Financial stress can make your RealAge two to thirty-two years older?

  • The difference between having the ideal blood pressure 115/76--and high blood pressure--higher than 140/90--can make a RealAge difference of more than twenty years?

  • A tablet of aspirin a day can make your RealAge 1.9 years younger?

  • Flossing daily and seeing a dentist and dental hygienist every six months can make your RealAge 6.4 years younger?

In RealAge you will discover many other easy-to-institute Age Reduction Strategies that will enable you to live longer and younger.

Your biological age may be a lot different from your chronological age--for better or worse. Dr. Michael Roizen, a preventive gerontologist at the University of Chicago who appears perennially in the "1,000 Best Doctors in the U.S." listings, says that with the help of his RealAge program, you can reduce your biological age by up to 20 years.

He's compiled a list of 100 health-related factors, among them tobacco and alcohol use, diet, prescription and over-the-counter drug use, your parents' health, even pet ownership and the highest educational level completed by your spouse, and worked all these into a quiz to determine your "real age." If you've taken your health for granted, be prepared for a shock. He then explains how to follow a personalized age-reduction plan using a range of methods, from quick fixes (use a helmet while bicycling), to moderately easy changes (avoid sun and radon exposure), all the way to the most difficult changes (reduce the stress in your life). Emotional issues are given as much attention as physical ones; Roizen says, for example, that seeing a psychologist to help work through serious personal problems can reduce your chronological age by 8 to 16 years alone.

RealAge may appeal to Fountain of Youth seekers, but will be especially useful for folks who are out of shape and too overwhelmed to start a fitness plan, and for those who are understandably confused by the wealth of contradictory health reports in the news. Dr. Roizen has done an excellent job of organizing and explaining essential health information, from defining health concepts such as blood pressure (and explaining how to lower it) to distilling facts about diet, supplements, and herbs. Far from faddish, RealAge clearly presents only advice that's been proven effective in clinical trials. This is preventive medicine at its best. --Erica Jorgensen

Author: Cecile Andrews
Brand: Brand: New Society Publishers


We’re hammered, we’re slammed, we’re out of control. Happiness is on the decline in the most affluent country in the world, and Americans are troubled by the destructiveness of a lifestyle devoted to money and status. Yet no one seems to have a clue how to exit from the fast lane.
 
Slow is Beautiful analyzes the subtle consumer and political and corporate forces stamping the joy from our existence and provides a vision of a more fulfilling life through the rediscovery of caring community, unhurried leisure, and life-affirming joie de vivre. The book discusses:
 
• The frantic time poverty plaguing everyone—a poverty that is being challenged by the growing slow life movement whose message is reverberating around the world
• The need to build a culture of connection with both people and the planet by challenging the consumer society and re-creating vibrant life in our local communities
• The creation of a different experience of time where we live life in slower, more reflective ways, savoring our lives and recapturing exuberance and laughter
 
Offering inspiration and concrete ideas, Slow is Beautiful will appeal to a broad audience of baby boomers nearing retirement, harried professionals with a social conscience, the one-time “middle class,” and twenty- to thirty-somethings who are now facing the sobering realities of constricted choices.

Author: Roman T. Solohub
Brand: Brand: Empennage Press

"Roman's book is a timely tool to help people to enjoy alcoholic beverages of all kinds in a healthy and positive manner. . . .It is a constructive approach to teaching our young people how to enjoy the fruits of the ancient arts of brewing, winemaking, and distilling and how to avoid the abuse of these products. . . .I am conviced that it is more constructive to teach our offspring how to handle and enjoy the consumption of alcoholic beverages wisely, instead of demonizing these beverages." - Eric Wallace, president, Left Hand Brewing . . . . . This book teaches the keys to drinking responsibly. The consumption of alcoholic beverages is common in most cultures and societies. As evidenced by daily headlines covering the problems that can occur as a result of abusing this potent drug, those who choose to drink owe it to themselves and the rest of society to learn to do so responsibly. Author Roman T. Solohub hopes to educate young people in particular on safe, moderate alcohol comsumption. This important guide teaches: 1. The truth about the history of alcohol and how the influence of the abstinence theorists has been misleading; 2. Some of the pros and cons for setting 21 as the legal drinking age and misconceptions relating to underage drinking; 3. Why alcohol education is every bit as important as sex education; 4. Tips for moderate consumption, such as counting each and every drink consumed, and knowing when to say "when"; and, 5. About the health risks associated with chronic alcohol abuse. . . . . "Clear Thinking When Drinking" is for anyone who decides to drink alcohol. It is an ideal book for parents to give to their college-aged children or for businesses to give to their employees. This manual is also valuable as a reference for adults currently using alcohol who may have some misconceptions about its properties.
