Publisher's Summary

Cameron Diaz follows up her number-one New York Times best seller, The Body Book, with a personal, practical, and authoritative guide that examines the art and science of growing older and offers concrete steps women can take to create abundant health and resilience as they age.
Cameron Diaz wrote The Body Book to help educate young women about how their bodies function, empowering them to make better-informed choices about their health and encouraging them to look beyond the latest health trends to understand their bodies at the cellular level. She interviewed doctors, scientists, nutritionists, and a host of other experts and shared what she'd learned - and what she wished she'd known 20 years earlier.
Now Cameron continues the journey she began, opening a conversation with her peers on an essential topic that for too long has been taboo in our society: the aging female body. In The Longevity Book, she shares the latest scientific research on how and why we age, synthesizing insights from top medical experts with her own thoughts, opinions, and experiences.
The Longevity Book explores what history, biology, neuroscience, and the women's health movement can teach us about maintaining optimal health as we transition from our 30s to midlife. From understanding how growing older impacts various bodily systems to the biological differences in the way aging affects men and women; the latest science on telomeres and slowing the rate of cognitive decline; how meditation heals us; and why love, friendship, and laughter matter for health, The Longevity Book offers an all-encompassing, holistic look at how the female body ages - and what we can all do to age better.
Without sugarcoating the hard facts - a 60-year-old body is different from a 35-five-year-old body no matter how much yoga you do - or romanticizing the upside - wisdom comes with age, if you live your life wisely - Cameron offers women a compassionate, informative, and intimate tour through the next stage of life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Boring. Nothing new here<br />

Cameron's first book was better. This one lists a bunch of diseases & studies....to sum it up.. stop smoking, workout, meditate, sleep 7 hours a day, love & stress less, 15 min of Sun a day, go to your doctor's checkups, do mental exercises and eat a Mediterranean Diet. 😊

I Can't Get Through This!

This book is a combination of Health and Well Being 101 and a Harvard Medical School course. After several tries, I am officially quitting this book. I just can't get through it. It is both interesting and dry, elementary and complex. I think old advice to eat well, exercise, get your rest and be positive (along with inheriting good genes) still stands.
