Live Younger Longer
6 Steps to Prevent Heart Disease, Cancer, Alzheimer’s and More
Stephen L. Kopecky
In the past century, the leading causes of death around the world have shifted from infectious diseases to long-term chronic illnesses. What’s killing us today isn’t so much flu or tuberculosis, but heart disease and cancer. Paradoxically, these chronic diseases are a consequence of living longer than ever. But even if we’re living longer, are we living better? The overwhelming number of people now living under the burden of chronic illness indicates otherwise.
Live Younger Longer outlines six steps to preserving health while also extending life. The secret lies not just in the steps themselves but in how you accomplish them. To live younger longer, we need to change our habits. But it’s not necessary to make big life changes or summon depths of will power; in fact, evidence shows that these tactics don’t really work. What you need instead is an open mind, some creativity and a commitment to living your life at its fullest.
In this book, Stephen Kopecky, M.D., offers his insights on:
- The best foods to eat and why
- Getting the most fitness in the least amount of time
- Why your sleep habits matter
- The dangers of stress and what to do about them
- How to make changes that will last a lifetime
Dr. Kopecky speaks from experience. As a young man just starting his family and his career, he survived cancer not once but twice. Since then, Dr. Kopecky has dedicated himself to discovering what it is that will keep him alive and healthy for as long as possible. In this book, he shares what he’s learned — through research, care for his patients and his own experiences.
