Aging With Grace by David Snowdon, MD

For the past 15 years, the School Sisters of Notre Dame in Mankato, Minnesota, have been volunteers as a part of a study on Alzheimer’s disease. Their personal and medical histories have been made available to the remarkable and empathetic researcher who began the study in 1986 after performing similar medical studies with other religious groups.
The School Sisters, who ranged in age from 75 to 104, were approached to participate in the study. Snowdon became personally involved with the School Sisters over the course of the stud.  He made a commitment to treat them with “care and respect” and only divulge information they were willing to share.  This unusual decision has led to a remarkable book, filled with insight that goes beyond charts and graphs, facts and figures.

Dr. Snowdon, is recognized as one of the world’s leading experts on aging and Alzheimer’s.

The Real Age Makeover by Michael Roize, MD

Michael Roizen wrote this revision of his RealAge approach, which focuses on changes you can make to increase your youth.Included is a RealAge self-test and hundreds of pages of information and advice about supplements, behaviors and other factors that influence aging. Some food can increase the risk of heart disease, while some can decrease it.  In The RealAge Makeover, Dr Roizen offers steps that will reduce or even prevent 80% of the diseases that make you feel or be older. He believes that eating dark chocolate, drinking a little coffee or green tea, can reduce inflammation and protect your arteries, joints, and memory.  But the wrong choice can lead to premature aging and loss of energy.  The RealAge Makeover tells you how much (in years) each such choice is worth. Why not live at 60 feeling like you did at 35
