Aging is optional. We don't have to age like our parents. We can hold on to our vitality and look well into our later years. Programs such as I outlined in The Perricone Prescription and Dr. Giampapa and his coauthors have so brilliantly and lucidly put forth in The Anti-Aging Solution: 5 Simple Steps to Looking and Feeling Young are the tools we need to ensure that this can happen. In addition to his own cutting-edge research, Dr. Giampapa has gathered up the proven research of many scientists to present his five-step program. When we lower our stress, make the right food choices, take targeted nutritional supplements, and follow a moderate yet effective fitness program, we are well on our way to achieving the dream of a long, healthy, and active life into our final decades.
