By Michael Fossel, MD, PhD, Greta Blackburn, and Dave Woynarowski, MD
The introduction for this book is titled The Hunt for Immortality, but that phrase could be used to describe the overall tone of the book as well. Throughout its 200 or so pages, authors Michael Fossel, MD, PhD, Greta Blackburn, and Dave Woynarowski, MD, take the reader on a relentless pursuit of increased longevity. No aspect of immortality is left unturned, from a history of the science behind slowing aging to specific steps you can take to live longer, this book has it all.
Divided into three parts, The Immortality Edge is essential reading for Life Extension® members.
Part One: The Immortality Promise tackles the question of whether aging is a disease with a cure or a natural process that has existed forever. By examining the roots of longevity science, readers will gain a basic knowledge of where cutting-edge anti-aging science is at today. The bulk of this chapter rests upon this foundation and the introduction of the telomere theory of aging. In fact, the authors state the following: “we are quite positive that the cause of and the solution to aging lies in telomere biology.”
Part Two: The Immortality Edge Longevity Program is actually divided into four parts; The Immortality Edge Supplement Plan, The Immortality Edge Fitness Plan, The Immortality Edge Stress-Reduction Plan, and Add Years to Your Life. While the titles of each section are self-explanatory, the information inside deserves a thorough reading. In fact, you might want to take notes, as there is so much information involving key supplements for longevity you’ll want to refer back to the pages several times over. The fitness plan and stress-reduction plan are sections that even advanced exercisers can pull tips from. But what separates this book from others in the field is the level of explanation and justification for each strategy. The authors aren’t merely telling you to do something; they’re telling you why and giving you lessons in longevity to boot.
Part Three: The Immortality Edge Forever is made up of two parts, The Immortality Edge Nutrition Plan and The Immortality Edge Forever Exercise Plan. These sections take the previous chapters in the book to another level, including such spot on sidebars as the Top Twenty Telomere-Friendly Foods and lists of foods with the most protein or fiber content. In short, this book provides everything you need, from knowledge, to nutrition, to fitness, to start your longevity program today!
