A new healthy book for the more than 50 million baby boomers who want to learn how to slow down the aging process and live healthier lives from the New York Times bestselling author.
There is no alternative to aging. No one stays young forever, but growing older does not have to be a painful process anymore. In Live Now, Age Later, Dr. Isadore Rosenfeld spells out the details of how to prevent, treat, and/or slow down virtually every disoder and complication of aging, including Alzheimer's disease, cancer, heart disease, aging skin, impotence, cateracts, osteoarthritis, prostate enlargement, stroke, deafness, and loss of vision.
The author serves as the medical correspondent for FOX TV and can be seen on ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN discussing and advising on noteworthy medical issues. He also writes a regular column as the health editor for Parade

"If you live long enough, you will probably become infirm and develop at least some of the trappings of old age," admits author Isadore Rosenfeld, M.D. "However, you can make that happen later rather than sooner; you can delay the onset of disability and chronic disease so as to enjoy life and remain vigorous and independent for most of your later years." Enabling you to accomplish that is Rosenfeld's aim in Live Now, Age Later. Each chapter deals with a specific aging complication--such as Alzheimer's, cancer, depression, stroke, osteoporosis, heart attacks, prostate enlargement, and losses of hearing, vision, libido, and teeth. For each condition, Rosenfeld presents the cause, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and specific strategies for lessening your risk. These may include diet, exercise, stress reduction, supplements, and medications, depending on the condition. A "what to remember" list at the end of each chapter is helpful for review. This is not a "miracle cure" book that tells you to take some alphabet-soup combination of vitamins or esoteric herbs to guarantee living to 120 with the body and mind of a 20-year-old. Rather, the recommendations are moderate and medically conventional. Rosenfeld's style is clear and accessible; his suggestions are easy to understand and implement. --Joan PriceAbout the Author:
