Product Description
In each of his widely acclaimed, best-selling books, Dr. Andrew Weil has been an authoritative and companionable guide through a uniquely effective combination of traditional and nontraditional approaches to health and healthy living. Now he gives us a book about aging that is unlike any other. Drawing on the new science of biogerontology (the biology of aging) as well as on the secrets of healthy longevity — diet, activity and attitude — Dr. Weil explains that there are a myriad of things we can do to keep our bodies and minds in good working order through all phases of life. Hugely informative, practical, and uplifting, Healthy Aging is infused with the engaging candor and common sense that have made Dr. Weil our most trusted source on healthy living.

With detailed information on:

-Learning to eat right: Following the anti-inflammatory diet, Dr. Weil’s guide to the nutritional components of a healthy lifestyle

-Separating myth from fact about the would-be elixirs of life extension — herbs, hormones, and anti-aging “medicines”

-Learning exercise, breathing and stress-management techniques to benefit your mind and body

-Understanding the science behind the aging process

-Keeping record of your life lessons to share with loved onesAmazon.com Review
Dr. Weil has raised dispensing health advice to an art form. Instead of making his audience feel inadequate or guilty about bad habits, he seems to subconsciously convince readers to do better merely by presenting health facts in a non-threatening way. Healthy Aging is his most scientifically technical book yet (you'll learn all about enzymes like telomerase and cell division and the chemistry behind phytonutrients like indole-3-carbinol, and the connection between cancer and other degenerative diseases like diabetes) yet by far his most fascinating.

His main mission here is to recommend "aging gracefully," which he considers accepting the process instead of fighting it. As the director of the country's leading integrative-medicine clinic (combining the best of traditional and alternative worlds), of course he disses Botox and the slew of $100-a-jar face creams out there. It's also no surprise that he focuses on proper nutrition, moderate exercise, and meditation and rest among his "12-point program for healthy aging." (Triathletes and exercise addicts should take special note of the research linking excessive exercise and ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.) He occasionally references his earlier works, including 8 Weeks to Optimum Health. But the most eye-opening sections are those that discuss the spirituality of aging and its emotional aspects. "Aging can bring frailty and suffering, but it can also bring depth and richness of experience, complexity of being, serenity, wisdom, and its own kind of power and grace," he writes. At 63, Weil is still a bit shy of senior status, but is aging well indeed, with the legacy of his late 93-year-old mother (who’s touchingly eulogized by Weil in this book) to guide him.--Erica Jorgensen ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Healthy Aging - Andrew Weil, M.D.
I have a collection of Dr. Weil's books and would highly recommend them to anyone interested in their health and longevity.He mixes his talents as both a medical doctor and a homeopathic doctor.

I am not a total vegetarian, although I do try to adhere to what he writes about health in eating.I am a firm believer in herbal medicines instead of laboratory produced prescriptions and he is an advocate of natural medicines.

I would purchase any and all of his books to glean his knowledge about health.I am seventy years old and most people are amazed at my years.I have never been taken, since I turned seventy, for a person over fifty or sixty years old.I must say, I can attribute a great deal of my health to Dr. Weil.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Insights on Healthful Aging with Grace
The author takes a fair stab at a burgeoning growth industry, basically selling unproven cures for an incurable disease, namely aging.In his book, Dr. Weil spends much time talking about what is aging and what are the causes.He rightly points out that the goal for everyone, should not necessarily be the extension of the lifespan, but their healthspan.This concept recognizes the important role genetics is likely to play with you and how your body ages.

However, alot of good advice is given on how to remain as healthy and active as possible.Dr. Weil takes what I consider to be a modest approach to physical exercise, recognizing that too much can lead to injury and excessively low fat reserves, necessary for overcoming many diseases.Dr. Weil also emphasizes (as you would expect him to do) an anti-inflammatory diet, which focuses on eating mostly vegetables and fruits, wholegrains and legumes, and very modest amounts of meat.

Though gladly ridiculing the various pills and cure-alls out there being enthusiastically marketed, I was a little surprised to see so many recommendations regarding vitamin, mineral and other supplements.Some, such as Co-enzyme Q and Thurmeric seem fairly harmless and I'm willing to give them a go.Some of the others I'm reserving judgement on.

Much of Dr. Weil's book in on being well, not necessarily looking good.In this regard I like his book, noting that in my opinion, it is better to look like a healthy 50 year old than a 50 year old trying desperately to look 30 and making a fool of oneself.Dr. Weil's approach is to age gracefully and healthfully and to be comfortable in your own skin.I think I can buy into such a concept.

5-0 out of 5 stars well-written
Dr Weil explains the reality of aging with helpful advice.It is not the fountain of youth, but Dr. Weil explains why that is not our goal.Interesting read if you are open minded about your health.

2-0 out of 5 stars Too Technical
Either Dr. Weil was trying to impress us with his vast knowledge of molecular biology or he honestly thought most readers would understand this stuff.If we armed ourselves with dictionaries, medical school textbooks and were willing to take volumnious amounts of notes, perhaps we would learn as much about the topic of aging as Dr. Weil labors to teach us. I'll never know because I not only became bored beyond belief after the first few chapters, but Dr. Weil's relentless message of, "age is not fun but there is nothing you can do about it, so accept it...." dragged me into despair at times. Depak Chopra, by contrast, is uplifting and hopeful in his message about the aging process.I am sorry I bought this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good book, easy reading
I liked this book. Very easy to read for the most part. It covers the complete spectrum of what happens to your body as you age, physically, mentally.The author goes in great detail to explain how your body works and what the impact is in our body and mind from the food we eat, the environment we live and and the good and bad habits we have. It also has some good advise on nutrition, supplement and in general for a healthy aging.It definetely makes you think twice about the food you put in your mouth and how you take care of yourself now that you are young.

Product Description
Written by Caleb Finch, one of the leading scientists of our time, The Biology of Human Longevity - Inflammation, Nutrition, and Aging in the Evolution of Lifespans synthesizes several decades of top research on the topic of human aging and longevity particularly on the recent theories of inflammation and its effects on human health. The book expands a number of existing major theories, including the Barker theory of fetal origins of adult disease to consider the role of inflammation and Harmon's free radical theory of aging to include inflammatory damage. Future increases in lifespan are challenged by the obesity epidemic and spreading global infections which may reverse the gains made in lowering inflammatory exposure. This timely and topical book will be of interest to anyone studying aging from any scientific angle.

* Author Caleb Finch is highly influential and respected scientist, ranked in the top half of the 1% most cited scientists
* Provides a novel synthesis of existing ideas about the biology of longevity and aging
* Incorporates important research findings from several disciplines, including Gerontology, Genomics, Neuroscience, Immunology, Nutrition ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Mildly disappointed
This is a great book in some respects.It collects many concepts concerning aging and disease. That said; it is a disappointment because the book suffers from poor editing.It is replete with misspellings and grammatical errors.Further, there are sentences that are completely meaningless, as if the author was interrupted in the middle of a thought.

This is a tough read, not because of the subject matter or because of the level of sophistication.It is a tough read because of the errors, and because of the sentence structure.Too bad really, I expected more after reading the review in Science. ... Read more

Deep Nutrition illustrates how our ancestors used nourishment to sculpt their anatomy, engineering bodies of extraordinary health and beauty. The length of our limbs, the shape of our eyes, and the proper function of our organs are all gifts of our ancestor's collective culinary wisdom. Citing the foods of traditional cultures from the Ancient Egyptians and the Maasai to the Japanese and the French, the Shanahans identify four food categories all the world's healthiest diets have in common, the Four Pillars of World Cuisine. Using the latest research in physiology and genetics, Dr. Shanahan explains why your family's health depends on eating these foods. In a world of competing nutritional ideologies, Deep Nutrition gives us the full picture, empowering us to take control of our destiny in ways we might never have imagined. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Read this and take charge of your health!
As a young woman with an eventual family on my mind, this book is invaluable to me. Misconceptions I have held about dairy and its place in the human diet have been shattered, and not because of one person's opinion, but because of the factual and scientific nature of the book. So many 'health' books nowadays are based solely on opinion and misinterpreted data. Deep Nutrition is a breath of fresh air because it teaches, on the basis of science, why certain foods (like raw dairy) are truly invaluable aspects of a healthy diet.

I would urge everyone, especially young couples thinking about starting a family, to read this book. Not only will it help you to change your health today, but the health of your future children and even grandchildren. Dr. Shanahan does an amazing job of getting to the root of true health and sharing it with the reader, and she's right: Your body NEEDS the traditional foods of generations past. Read this book and see!

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a "life changing ' book
I'm not going to try and re-write this book into a few paragraphs.I just want you to understand that if there is only one book that you are able to purchase or read this year for your health (or a loved one's) this is the one that I'd hope you read.

Once you get into the 'meat' of the message, you will understand what our forefathers and grandparent ate wasn't by mistake.It will resonate, and make perfect sense to you...you will understand the profound benefits of eating the proper food/nutrition needed to take control of your health.It's not a difficult concept.We just need to be un-brainwashed and think logically again.

I won't kid you, the book can and will get a bit scientific in parts, but as a whole, it's an easy, interesting read that will change your perception of health and nutrition. THAT alone should be incredibly interesting.

Take charge of your life, health and nutrition.Read the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars I would love to shake her hand!
There is nothing better than the combination of sound medical/ science information coupled with respect for the wisdom of our ancestors regarding our nutrition. Here's a book that will tell you why, in medically precise ways, your ancestors (maybe as recently as your grandparents) had a different respectful approach to food, and its preparation, that had an intimate connection to health at any age. There are essential factors all traditional cuisines have in common, no matter where they came from. She then compares/contrasts our fast-food, low-fat, carbohydrate laden food choices and the resultant up-welling of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and stroke.

Ultimately Dr. Shanahan's book is deeply informative about how our current nutritional trends effect physiologic function, right down to the cellular level, and every body tissue. Our ancestors may not have been able to articulate why traditional world cuisines worked, but they could see the results in their beautiful children having strong straight bones, straight strong teeth who grew up to be healthy strong members of their societies. Dr. Shanahan will lay it out for you ever so clearly and how you can recapture that ancestral food wisdom and scrap the health draining trends of the last 60 years that have only caused an increase in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, stroke and a nation dependent on pharmaceuticals to cope with the end results of the government/ AHA/ ADA backed food pyramid.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally! A Great Read on Nutrition-Thank you!
A great read, very informative, lots of nutritional information that gave me plenty of "food for thought", and encouragement to take responsibility for what I am putting into my mouth!

5-0 out of 5 stars The Only Book I've Ever Read That's Changed My Eating Habits
Thoughtful, thought-provoking and approachable, Deep Nutrition presents a universe of ideas that possess the rarest of qualities: obvious and eye-opening at the same time. Cate and Luke delve into concepts of food as information for our genes, the relationship between the health and beauty of our bodies and the health and beauty of the environment in which they function, disease and nutrition, and the collective wisdom (which they term the Four Pillars) contained in traditional cuisines to deliver a compelling read.I came away from this book motivated in a way I never have before to change my diet.And by "change" I don't mean merely to think about changing it, but to actually change it.They shine a sorely-needed spotlight on vegetable oils and sugars, and explain in accessible terms why these twin poisons are so harmful and so ubiquitous.For a long time, my reaction to books proposing eating in a slower, wiser and healthier way was "yeah, that's a great idea, but it takes time I don't have." I have come to realize that that's the whole point -- things that are important should take time.Moreover, as with any change in habits, a new way of thinking becomes automatic over time. This book makes sense. It resonates. After reading this book, you'll never view a trip to the supermarket the same again... ... Read more

Product Description

In September 2009, a meeting was held in Palm Cove, Australia, which brought together the world experts in the Maillard or 'browning' reaction. This reaction causes the browning of foods when they are heated and in chocolate, caramel and beer, this reaction is appetizing, contributing to aroma, taste and texture. But when these products accumulate in the body, this same process contributes to disease and ageing.

The book is the proceedings of that meeting, held in response to a growing recognition of the role reactive carbonyl compounds play in food technology, nutrition and tissue ageing in biology and medicine. Reactive carbonyls now touch every aspect of food science, biology and medicine. Efforts to counteract the damage caused by these products are gaining acceptance as a basis for novel therapeutic approaches, and the fields of food technology, ageing and preventive medicine are experiencing an upsurge of interest in strategies to minimize the unwanted effects of the Maillard reaction. The meeting also fostered a balanced approach to understanding both the advantageous and deleterious properties of carbonyl compounds and their end products in food science, technology and medicine. The major audience of this book is the large body of scientists and worldwide industries with an interest in the Maillard reaction in foods and biology and medicine, with both basic and applied researchers and industry representatives from diverse fields, who have interests in: Chemistry of the Maillard Reaction, Biology and the Maillard Reaction, Enzymology, Receptors and Signal Transduction, Bioinformatics and Systems Biology, Physiology, Disease and Therapeutics, Food Science and Nutrition and the Maillard Reaction.

Product Description
The Maillard reaction, first described during the early 20th century, originally referred to the browning reaction that occurs between amino acids and sugars during the cooking and processing of foods. This reaction contributes to the color, taste, aroma, and texture of foods, and also affects their nutritional and toxicological properties.

The Maillard reaction, which has been at the crossroads of food and biomedical sciences, is now also known to contribute to the natural and normal aging of tissue proteins and other biomolecules. It is also implicated in the pathologic processes of a range of age-related chronic diseases, including arthritis, atherosclerosis, diabetes, and neurodegenerative diseases. The role of the Maillard reaction in diabetes and its complications has become a major focus of research, leading to a better understanding of the importance of oxidative stress, lipid peroxidation, and hyperlipidemia in diabetic complications.

This volume addresses all of these issues - -from food to biomedical sciences -- and highlights current research trends, including the identification of new biomarkers, nutrition, and toxicology, and the role of oxidative stress, advanced glycoxidation and lipoxidation end products (AGE/ALEs) in aging and chronic disease.

The last section of the book, devoted to recent research on AGE/ALE inhibitors in animal models and clinical trials, assesses the current status of pharmaceutical interventions for retarding the Maillard reaction and the pathophysiology associated with aging and age-related disease.

Product Description
Despite the enormous interest in discovering longevity genes in humans, the results have been elusive, while the effects of physical activity in delaying aging are promising and the importance of caloric restriction is now being systematically investigated. At present, there is enough evidence to define the components of a healthy diet and physical activity lifestyle at the population level and it is clear that lack of exercise is associated with increased risk of premature chronic disease and death. Currently, research aims at defining the type and frequency of genetic variation and its influence on dietary response as well as the impact of diet and exercise on gene expression. The book also provides detailed critical reviews of the relationship between mood changes and the amount of protein, amino acids, carbohydrates and polyunsaturated fatty acids, and the effects of genetic and environmental factors in bone turnover and bone density. ...

Product Description
It can slowly drain the life force from your body over time. Or kill swiftly without warning. But you will never find it on a medical chart or see it listed on a death certificate. It's called stress. It exacts a tremendous toll on our lives. It saps our strength, robs our youth and makes us old before our time. We encounter it day in and day out, yet do little, if anything about it. It's no wonder. In today's 'pressure cooker society', the average lunch hour lasts about 11 minutes. Dinner is often consumed in less than 6 minutes (usually seated in front of the television). The average workday can last 10 hours or more. We seem to be living in a society where there's virtually no time for quality time. Strictly speaking, stress itself is not among the direct causes of ageing, yet it plays an extremely important role in the ageing process. It is a powerful force that serves as a catalyst in every known mechanism that causes us to age. Readers might be surprised to find out that this book has as much to do with ageing, life extension and specific measures we can take to postpone the inevitable as it does with stress. The fact is that stress and ageing are inextricably bound together. ... Read more
