Learn the secrets of longevity and staying youthful: “A good read . . .Very important.” —Larry King
 
A scientist discusses the nature of health and sickness—and what we all can do to remain vibrant as we grow older—in a book that takes you through the root causes of most diseases and guides you in ways that can save your life and the lives of others.
 
Discover the four primary causes of illnesses and how to avoid them. Learn the ten commandments of longevity, the secret habits of centenarians, and, most important, learn how you can remain youthful well into your eighties and nineties. Dr. Fred Sancilio shares the story of the tragic demise of his own father, the tipping point to his quest to find the truth about why some people always seem to be sick, while others are perpetually healthy. Learn how scientists study the differences between eating habits of various populations, and the connection between the incredible health of the Inuits of Greenland and a diet that could well benefit all of mankind. This guidebook to a long and healthy life will lay the groundwork for a robust and active future.
