BOOK DESCRIPTION<br /> This book is a summing-up of all the significant research that has been conducted on longevity during the last two decades. It is a myth that longevity is determined by genes alone. Nor is it too late to make lifestyle changes that increase your chances of living a long and healthy life. Many of us are aging faster than we should due to poor diet and inactive lifestyle. You will be surprised at how easy it is to turn average health into optimal health once you know the truth about what is healthy and what is not. Making healthy choices will become second nature to you. <br /> <br />ABOUT THE AUTHOR<br /> Professor Emeritus E H Mikhail is a nonagenarian who dedicated a large portion of his retirement to studying the significant research that has been conducted on longevity during the last two decades. The result? Being in optimal health.<br />

Customer Reviews
Have you ever wondered why details provided to you in school as fact, later on turn out to be false? Many of the times, when you find errors, the classrooms never update their version of truth. Additionally, we find that many "truths" are established by consensus rather than test, evaluation, comparative reasoning or matching physical evidence, This book reviews the worst offenders in climatology, honoring of invention, evolution, timing of critical events, physics, tectonics, and many other elements recognized by consensus rather than science. Tectonics did not make the Pacific Ocean and Edison is not the inventor described in many books. Also our Earth is not about to burn up and the reason unfossilized dinosaur remains are being found today is that they somehow survived the Cretaceous extinction. Don't let consensus science keep you from the truth. Details are in the book.
