In this revolutionary book, bestselling author John Robbins reveals the scientifically proven secrets of the world's healthiest and longest-lived peoples, and explains how to live an extended and fulfilling life in which our later years become a period of wisdom, vitality, and happiness.
From the Publisher:
The best-selling author of Diet for a New America introduces a new paradigm of aging that examines four native cultures distinguished by their longevity and good health to determine those factors--including diet, exercise, and emotional well-being--that can add years to one's life. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
The renowned diet and health writer John Robbins, whose DIET FOR A NEW AMERICA was a well-received wake-up call, looks to really old people from many world cultures for clues to how we can live longer, healthier lives. His comparative study of the very old in the Middle East, South America, and Russia finds commonalities that match common sense: fruits and vegetables are important, as are nuts and whole grains. In addition to diet, cultural traits such as valuing the very old and very young seem to be shared in the long-living group. He also notes that the survivor group is made up of individuals who maintain a good attitude toward life and who engage in daily physical activity. Robbins's conclusions may not be earth-shattering--Andrew Weil basically suggests the same thing--but his sincere and well-expressed campaign to get us to change makes HEALTHY AT 100 a good follow-up to DIET FOR A NEW AMERICA and a welcome contribution to the good-food discussion.
