Living Longer: The heart-mind connection is written for all those who strive for optimal long-term health and the maximal functioning of their hearts and minds. Today's problem for the health-conscious individual is information overload - new health studies pour out almost daily fromnewspapers, radio stations and television networks. Many of the reports are contradictory and often misleading. In this book, Professor Opie sifts through the available information on the vast number of possible health promotion changes, varying from increased exercise to aspirin to green tea, and diets from Atkins to the vegetarian, with the aim of grading the validity of the evidence, asking questions suchas, "Just how true are the studies" and "Just how compelling are the facts they claim"? Living Longer guides the reader through this morass of information with the message that just five key steps taken now will promote long-term health benefits for heart and mind and give protection from futureheart disease and brain deterioration.
Lionel H. Opie is Director Emeritus at the Hatter Cardiovascular Research Institute in Cape Town, South Africa.
