ELDER NUTRITION: The senior years can be very active and fulfilling years. However, the majority of people over age seventy years are deficient in many nutrients. Experience and research have shown that many of the chronic health problems of elders are due less to the aging process itself than to the malnutrition that occurs in a majority of seniors. Elder Nutrition will show how seniors can achieve excellent health and an active lifestyle through proper nutrition, exercise, sleep, social support, and a positive mental attitude. Better nutrition can prevent or at least alleviate many common health problems such as muscle and bone loss, infection, heart disease, strokes, cancer, vision problems, depression, dementia, diabetes, chronic fatigue, arthritis, and kidney failure. This book is backed by hundreds of published research studies and by Dr. Curtis?s extensive experience in treating nutritional problems of elders.
