BOOKS

Over time there have been certain health related books that have made a difference in the way I think, the knowledge I have, and/or my behavior. Here are a few that I recommend.

I have chosen these because they are easily read without a background in science or healthcare.They are not in any particular order other than that in which I pulled them off the shelf –


“Younger Next Year” A Guide to Living Like 50 Until You’re 80 and Beyond
by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge, M.D.
also “Younger Next Year for Women” same authors

Everyone over 45 should read these and anyone planning on being 45 should read these.These books are well written with lots of information based on the most current science. But the science won’t bog down the average reader; it just explains why the authors recommend certain lifestyles. The authors are a wonderful ‘tag’ team. Chris Crowley has a great sense of humor and gives you the nuts and bolts of living in a youthful way. Henry Lodge gives the science behind the lifestyle recommendations. Its a great kick in the butt for anyone thinking about getting off his/her butt.

“The China Study”
by Dr. T. Colin Campbell

The China Study details the connection between nutrition and heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. The report also examines the source of nutritional confusion produced by powerful lobbies, government entities, and opportunistic scientists. The New York Times has recognized the study as the “most comprehensive large study ever undertaken of the relationship between diet and the risk of developing disease.”
