Live young 4: don’t be a slave to your genetics (currently only available in french)

Live Young: a book in continuity with the first three which are unique reference works containing recommendations on all the important aspects to consider for “living young longer”. This time, the main diseases associated with aging are discussed with explanations on the causes, but also the risk and prevention factors. Eight health professionals join forces to cover all important aspects: Alzheimer’s, joint problems, sleep problems, overuse of drugs, longevity diet, etc. Three pharmacists, a nutritionist, a doctor of kinesiology, a psychologist and a dentist have teamed up with Éric Simard, a Quebec researcher in healthy aging, to offer a new concept: facilitating advice. Here, it’s about simplifying disease risk reduction recommendations to produce statements that are easy to understand and apply; understanding + motivation + application = facilitating advice. It is the way to simplify and improve lifestyles to therefore facilitate the development of a culture of preventative measures and allow people to age healthily.
