Younger Next Year: The New Science Of Aging

Episode 1 of 1

There are hundreds of consumer health books, so the question must be asked - why have Dr. Henry Lodge's Younger Next Year books been such a dramatic success? In simple terms, the answer is that Dr. Lodge has illuminated the new science of aging: Why everyone - no matter what age - needs to exercise regularly and adopt other constructive behaviors to remain vital to live better, longer. He explains the biological impact of exercise on the body and the brain - how it forces cell decay and cell renewal in both. Just as important, Dr. Lodge explains why establishing caring relationships and committing and connecting to issues or projects that are truly meaningful is critical to healthy longevity. Other significant factors, such as eating properly, reducing stress and living within your means, are also highlighted. The underlying concept that you can actually become stronger, healthier and function more effectively as you grow older is an exciting premise that is based on the latest scientific research. Dr. Lodge's writing conveys a joy for life. He encourages people to take action to help themselves, their families, their friends and their communities. In this program Dr. Lodge will focus on the philosophy, science and advice espoused in the Younger Next Year books, as well as new research on the brain. The aim is to create a highly engaging program providing greater awareness and understanding of health issues and lifestyle choices that affect aging, and thus to inspire the adoption of new behaviors and practices by individuals and their families.
