I have recently downloaded and read a great new book on health from the Internet. It is called "Baby boomers' guide to healthy aging" and it can be downloaded from the following site: http://www.download-book.com for only $6.00. I have never read a book that so clearly explains conditions such as cancer and heart disease. Even dementia is dealt with in a way that anyone can understand.
Helpful strategies are offered on dietary and lifestyle practices which can decrease your chances of suffering from one of these diseases.
I recommend this book to anyone. Baby boomers guide to healthy aging, at http://www.download-book.com
In the chapter on heart disease the various risk factors are evaluated. Is is cholesterol or homocysteine ? In the chapter on cancer, the disease is dealt with overall and then certain cancers are singled out for detailed treatment, including breast, stomach, cervical and colon cancer. Did you know, for example, that people who have a lot of olive oil, such as Greek women, have a lower incidence of breast cancer? I did not. It is filled with things like that. It is great.
Menopause is explained, as is the link between it and osteoporosis. The pros and cons of HRT are discussed. It is a must read in my opinion.
Have a look at it
