"Healthy at 100"
Diet plays a crucial role in healthy aging from ensuring bone health to
mental acuity. You may be surprised to learn which foods are the best
sources of the nutrients that are significantly related to higher bone
mineral density and strength. See which foods protect nutrient intake,
avoiding or reducing osteoporotic fractures. Fascinating research on the
longest-lived population on the planet shows they consume fewer calories,

You’ll be surprised to learn the latest findings on the specific foods that cause Type I and Type II diabetes, and the diet that controls blood sugar three times more effectively than the American Diabetes Association (ADA) diet. The American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Medical Association are in support of the cutting-edge research from Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. Bibliography included.
