The book begins by explaining the evolution of life expectancy from 24 years in the Roman Empire up through today. By 2020, more people will be over 85 years of age than ever before. The centenarian population will grow from the 40-50,000 population now to over 250,000 by 2020.
The author covers the main areas of nutrients. These are antioxidants, wholesome foods, minerals/vitamins, fish, fiber and brussels sprouts. Tretinoin is considered the number one miracle skin cream to improve skin (Retin-A). The author has an excellent checklist in the back of the book. It lists nutrition, exercise regimentation, stress relief actions, mind/emotional support and immunity as factors to track over time.
Overall, the book provides much information in a highly abbreviated form. It is well worth the price for the considerable value of the information contained.
